Brain Farts and Wedding cakes.

So I just realized that last post I wrote “Good News #1” but then never went to #2, WHOOPS! So here we go…

#2 – WE BOOKED BOTH VENUES FOR FLORIDA AND ISRAEL WEDDINGS! woohhoo! We booked the Zoo in FL, and let me just tell you, I cannot be more excited thinking of the baby animals that will be with me during the ceremony and reception (most DEF will have to look out for them pooping or something on my dress, I do have to wear it again a week later).

We also got a caterer, so we got that out of the way. However, we are not doing a wedding cake. I am a baker, and so is my mother- who is baking my wedding cake for the Israel wedding, so I refuse to pay hundreds of $$$ to get a wedding cake. So I was thinking of an alternative I could either bring with me to FL or easily make the day before the wedding (only about 50 people invited). Cupcakes? Cake-pops? Truffles? Cookie bar? any suggestions will be HAPPILY accepted.

For Israel, we booked Andromeda-House which is this beautiful old house that overlooks the ocean with a phenomenal view to Tel-Aviv, so we decided to go with a “sunset-at-the-beach” style wedding. YEY! Another perk, is that since we are doing it on a Saturday… NO KOSHER FOODDD I can serve whatevverrrrrr I want! Phew.

Well, that’s all I got for you for today.

Heroic Dress Shopping

Hello all! It has been a while since I have updated, but there was a looot going on! Im thinking we should start with the good news…

Good news #1: I GOT A WEDDING DRESS!!!!!!! last Saturday my Aunt- Debbie, Natalie and I went to a wedding show here in Seattle. And let me tell you something guys- The amount of free cake sampling that went on there… is stuff only dreams are made of. I mean- ENDLESS of cake/cupcake samples. And not just that! Hawaiian BBQ, taco station, Poke station, gelato, ice cream, just endless food!!! it was wonderful.

I tried on several wedding dresses and they were.. good, but not great. Then I tried on one that was just, close to perfect (and not only because IT HAS POCKETS !!!!) But then I thought- there will be so many other dresses along the line, I might find something better (even though this was a sample sale and the prices were greatly dropped).

The next day I woke up feeling sad. I thought- I really like that dress. I should have got it. So naturally I overthink everything and let thoughts spiral in my mind until I can no longer function as an active member of society, and called up the one person who can handle my spiraling- my beloved Mom.

After I showed her pictures of the dress from endless angles, she almost yelled at me saying “WHEN YOU FIND SOMETHING YOU LOVE YOU BUY IT!!!!!! till this day I get furious at your Dad since he said the same thing to me, but instead of a wedding dress it was a perfect leather bag from a small bumblefuck town in Italy! and now its gone forever!! CHASE THAT DRESS!!!!” well I might have overdone the last part but that’s how I choose to remember her heroic speech.

So I called up the wedding dress store place, and basically begged them on the phone to sell it to me in the price it was yesterday at the sample sale (marked down from $4500 to $1050!!!!!!!!!!) And surprisingly… they were kind enough to do so if I come THAT day and buy it THAT day. So naturally, I called my mom again ‘cuz as a soon to be 28 year old adult, I still cant make decisions on my own. I marched up to my manager and said “YOU MUST RELEASE ME FROM WORK. A DRESS IN DISTRESS IS IN NEED AND I NEED TO GO BUY IT. also I will work from home please please please pleaseeeeeeeee”. And I cant believe that worked- BUT HE LET ME GO. noon. on a Monday. I love my job.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how to heroically buy your wedding dress.

Till next time,

Baby animals walking you down the isle.

Hey y’all!

So I have been asked several times recently “How is the wedding planning going?” and I always make up some shit to make it seem like I’m doing something. Honestly, I have been doing nothing. No clue what to do. It’s so confusing.

Zach’s mom has been kind enough to send us links for different venues in FL (we live in Seattle now but his family is in FL… so we’re gonna do it there), going to some of these places, getting us plans and rates. Some have been better than others…. then today… today she found us a gem.

Apparently the Brevard Zoo has a reception “hall” where people have weddings.. yes, at the zoo. My initial thought that it’s interesting, could be fun, funny, and cute… and then she gave me another piece of information that completely blew my mind. THEY BRING OUT BABY ANIMALS DURING THE RECEPTION IF YOU WANT THEM TO !!!!!!!!! baby!!! animals!!!! walking!! with me!!! down the aisle!!!!!!! WHHAATTT!!! oh what a world we live in.

So I just wanted to share with all of you that little piece of information. Can you imagine walking down the isle and seeing this little adorable thing?

That’s all I got for now. I will be researching a few more places this weekend and fill you in!

Lets All Put Salads On Our Faces.

So Yesterday I had the wonderful and embarrassing experience that women seem to love so much- going to Sephora. I’m not kidding or exaggerating, this is how it went:

Me: “Hi! I came here without makeup today so you can see how dry my skin is. I am looking for umm.. well I already have that thingy that goes on your face first..-“

Sephora elite: “Do you mean a sponge?”

Me: “No.. why would I mean a sponge… that liquidy thing”

Sephora elite: “Oh. Foundation.”

Me: “Yeah sure. I like it though. I wanted to look into maybe skin care or like a primer”

Sephora elite: “What kind of foundation do you use?”

Me: “Ummm… well I think its the one that.. oh crap I cant remember…” ANNNDDDD then we just have multiple moments of silence while she looks at me as if I am the dumbest person in the world.

Oh but dont get me wrong, it was great! I bought $55 worth of different eyeliner since I couldnt decide which one I want (this will come with NO surprise to my close friends and family) and I got samples of these ridiculously expensive creams and oils for my face that were so so small. Kind of reminded me in a way of those super expensive restaurants with TINY good for nothing plates of food that just make you want to say when youre done “well that was fun… want to go out for dinner now?”

But then it hit me. I dont necessarily need to buy THOSE pretentious products that are made of KALE (why? why on earth would that be a good thing for my skin?) some kind of Goji Berry extract and other words products that honestly made it sound as if she is describing a salad. But I do need to take care of myself. I recently started taking care of my hair since it is absolutely FRIED. Between Biotin pills, Biotin shampoo, Argan oil mask, Argan oil serum and this other stay in cream thingy… my hair is 100000 times better!!!!

I am also taking care of my body, trying to eat healthy again and starting a new gym routine.. why not my face as well? I love my face. Honestly. I do. I SHOULD take care of it, the same way I take care of every other piece of my exterior self (my interior needs some work too… I get a “little” bitchy when I’m hungry. My mom carries snacks in the purse whenever we go out just in case. Not even kidding).

Soooooo yeah. Thats my bit for today. Wedding bells are a coming and I DO NOT want to be one of those people who look back at their wedding photos and almost make it a family joke. Although I will probably do something so stupid and clumsy at my own wedding that it probably WILL end up being a family joke.

Alright I’ve been talking for too long.

Later losers!

Well, Here we go.

Alright, here it goes! Starting my new blog. Huh. Not as exciting as I thought.

….Ok, let’s start over.

Hey guys! (I’m saying ‘guys’ as if I believe someone besides my close friends and family will ever read this). My name is Shanee and I just recently got engaged. My fiancé and I just decided on a wedding date(s), and I am STOKED. We are going to have two weddings- one in the US and one in Israel (where I’m from), and I mean, what’s better than having TWO days when everything is about you and how pretty you are?

BBUUUUUTTT at the same time I’m thinking “damn, I really shouldn’t have had those three and a half donuts today”. So I thought that if I go completely ‘basic’, make a new years resolution of “new year new me”, go to the gym and stop eating nothing but sugar and document it to the world to see (who am I kidding), I might feel like I owe something to all you people I don’t know and perhaps will think twice before I go on my next donut binge.

So, I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to write about. Maybe my wedding planning? Fitness routine? How I hope to fit into an amazingly stupendous wedding dress that no matter what cut it will be my dad will think it has too much boobage? What I eat? Who knows. I’ll figure it out.

I think my first step is to actually find out how to open a blog. Yup. That’s right. I am currently writing this post, 12/21/2018, on Word. I wonder how long it’ll take until this will actually appear on a blog. I bet against myself saying another 10 days- a combo of fear of technology, laziness, and being cheap not wanting to pay a fee while at the same time buying worthless shit I don’t need from Amazon.

Lets all find out together!

P.S – It is now 01/05. I only now am publishing this… so… a total of… 16 days. Ugh. I am THAT lazy.
