So I am perusing through the most recent copy of People mag (Jesse was thumbing through the one from a few weeks back that featured the royal wedding). Kim Kardashian and her new fiance, Kris Humphries are on the cover. I will admit it. I have been known to keep up with a Kardashian or eight. I was slightly obsessed there for a hot minute. However, I think the show jumped the shark this past fall when Kim and Kourtney took on New York. I watched an episode (OK, I watched the same episode like 12 times) and was really mehhh about it. And then I was really over it when the newest Kardashian show about Khloe and Lamar premiered. It's more like Khloe and La-lame. So. Over it. I want to punch Khloe's baby talk voice in the baby face.
Back to the article, though. In their People engagement announcement Kim and Kris gush over their totally cliche proposal. Rose petals, Kris? Is that alls ya got? (Side note: I am totally kidding. Rose petals are very sweet. And I would've gone coo coo for
So my question is this: Were my initial and very now-you-see-them-and-now-you-don't feelings completely over the top and out of control? Was this a bridezilla moment in the making? Have any of my other fellow brides or former brides had a similar and very ridiculous feeling like this before? I haven't until now. But I wanted to share it with you. I hope you laughed at me (I am laughing at me). Perhaps you scoffed at me (what's new, right?). Or maybe you're now googling the crap out of Kim K. That ring is huge, no? Check it out here. And Kris seems like a swell guy. Did you notice he spells his name the same way as Kim's mom, Kris "keeps Bruce's balls in a jar in the kitchen" Jenner? I don't know much more about this pretty boy baller, but I think I like him. I like that he doesn't want to be a main fixture on the Kardashian's empire of E! reality shows. I surely cannot say that for Khloe's husband, La-lame, who also plays for the douchiest basketball team EVER.
Anyways. I am done recapping my alleged bridezilla moment. Here's hoping there won't be
Another wedding related update: We changed our blog URL. It automatically brings you to us if you try the old URL, but we are now officially branded as http://www.jesseandlauren.com/. We are using this blog for people to RSVP to the wedding so we needed something easy to remember. And if you can't remember our names then you probably shouldn't come to our wedding, right? We also figured this whole big fat farm wedding is gonna get pretty old. We plan to ride it through til the wedding day, but we're hoping to come up with some other campy wedded bliss baloney after we tie the ol' knot. So yes, we'll continue to blog post big fat farm wedding. And whatever you do, don't try the address the other way around or you'll be brought to a wedding web page for a couple who got married on New Year's Eve of this past year. We're both in love and share the same names, but the similarities end there. They live in Canada where Lauren is a barrel racer, and Jesse is a professional bull rider. You can't make this stuff up. It's a completely true story.
And last but not least....Jesse and I are meeting up with a local blogger friend of ours tomorrow. Well she is more my friend than Jesse's. Jesse knows about her because I talk about her to him, but they have never officially corresponded before. I have mentioned Carla a few times before on our blog too. She writes Hammers and High Heels. It's a great blog, but sadly her and her family were also victims of the recent tornado that hit North Minneapolis. Their damages were minor in comparison to others, but it was still a very traumatic experience for them. We're all getting together at the bum crack of dawn (OK, it's actually 8am so not that early) to volunteer at the Farview Rec Center. I am looking forward to having an opportunity to help out my community, and also for the opportunity to meet Carla. Let's hope it's not super weird and awkward, right? For those of you who know me, you know I do awkward well. But again, the last person I met from the internet asked me to marry him....soooo....
I will leave you all in suspense as to how it all turns out. More to come soon! ◦
