I'm such a cool kid.

Why am I so cool, do you ask?

Right now, I'm sitting up in my bed with my feet under the covers writing this blog post.

Say Yes to the Dress is on the TV. Third episode in a row. Do I already have a wedding dress? why yes, yes I do. Did I ever watch this show before I got a wedding dress? Yes, once. When Anna was visiting right after I got engaged. (Fun fact: that was also the night that a series of Say Yes to the Dress episodes was followed by a Lifetime movie about being left at the altar. We turned that shit off promptly.) Now, however, I watch Say Yes to the Dress all.the.freaking.time.

I don't even understand why - I think it's ridiculous! I don't even enjoy it in a "ooh, look at the pretty dress" way. Most of the dresses are very not my style, even if they're pretty, and to be honest the ones with the see-through portions sort of freak me out. The fact that even the "budget" brides on this show have a wedding dress budget that is three to five times my wedding dress budget also freaks me out. Honestly, I set my budget before we even set a wedding budget. I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much on a dress that I'm going to wear for a day (or maybe two, if we do a trash-the-dress-type shoot afterward, which we are seriously considering. Anyone done one of those before?) Some of these dresses cost over TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. And I just saw one that cost NINETEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. 

I'm not even sure where to go after that.

I hope that others are also having an enjoyable Friday night, though I totally understand if your Friday night includes things like going out in public rather than sitting in bed in your PJs watching TLC, drinking white wine, and eating some white chocolate chips from the freezer out of the bag.

  1. Say Yes to the Dress blows my mind on a regular basis! Whether it's the relatives acting crazy or the dresses costing an arm, leg, and the price of my car it's like a train wreck you can't stop watching no matter how hard you try...

  2. There is nothing wrong with compulsively watchint "say yes to the dress." I've been married for a bit now and still thoroughly enjoy that show. (And I also could not comprehend a super expensive dress. My point of comparsion was always rent. As in "you want me to spend more on a dress that I'll wear for 8 hours than I spend on a full month of rent??? no-can-do."
