Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

Serious countdown time...

The wedding is in less than seven days at this point. At this time next Saturday, I will have been married for four hours, and looking forward to wrapping up the party so I can start that fabled wedding night ;-)

The disaster with the extra charges is being worked out. The gratuity would be more like $700 vs the $1200 I was calculating, and instead of making us pay for the minimum 100 guests, we'll only have to pay what our final guest count says (which is going to be in the 85-90 range), so the difference works out to us paying just about what we originally owed. Billy and I are fine with that, especially since, according to my mom, the wedding coordinator is totally recognizing that she's inconveniencing us and this is the millionth screw up she's had to deal with in the transition from the original coordinator to her.

I'm still not recommending anyone else have their reception at this hotel. Even though they've made good on all of their mistakes, this is still way more shit than any person should have to deal with leading up to the wedding day.

Work all day at Banana Republic tomorrow, ugh. I have a feeling I'm not going to stick with that job much longer - my "real" job spoils me too much by giving me paid lunch hours and letting me go home early on a Friday afternoon when there was nothing else to do (yet letting me put down my full hours on the time sheet). Then Monday and Tuesday at the new job, and Wednesday I fly back to Holland!

And...happy Valentine's day, everyone. Not that Billy and I hold the day in any high esteem, lol. I think the most elaborate Valentine's we've ever done was the one that was actually a week before we started dating, when he constructed this awesome "claw machine" out of random stuff from a late night Meijer run (Billy had a slight claw machine addiction early on in our friendship). Since then we've always just waited a week to do romantic crap so we didn't have to deal with the Valentine crowds.

Tonight we did get ice cream, though. It's been months since I've had Cold Stone, so this seemed like a good time to do it. Going to restrict myself to eating really healthy food this week - I can't crash diet because my mother would kill me if I lost (or gained) enough weight to require altering my wedding gown, but I can make sure that I hold steady so I look fabulous in one week.

Because let me just say it one more time, I'M GETTING MARRIED IN A WEEK.
