1. Hardcore wedding dieting starts tomorrow. Which means I obviously have to polish these off today. Along with all the ice cream within a five mile radius of our apartment so that I can avoid temptation for the next four months. #122daystogo #EWWOwedding #passtheXanax

2. And if any of you really think I am going to avoid sugar for that long, then you are adorably delusional. Let’s be friends.

3. That time I went to the farmer’s market twice in one day because I am that maniac who NEEDS HER HEIRLOOM TOMATOES AND SHE NEEDS THEM NOW. And when I first went they were still setting up and I felt weirder about taking it upon myself to rummage through their unopened boxes to get to the green zebras than I did about the possibility of someone calling me out on having been there already the second time around.

4. For the record, no one remembered me.

5. Apparently those who only sleep 6 hours a night have the reaction times of those with blood alcohol levels that correlate with severe drunkenness. This explains so much about me.

6. Don’t insomniac and drive. That’s my new bumper sticker. You know, if I had a car. See #5.

7. There are both bridal shower and wedding invitations sitting in my apartment right now. Let the never-ending arguments with our mothers over our final guest lists commence.

8. #IWasntKiddingAboutTheXanax

9. If the.boy and I rented one of these (but all in white) to drive us from the church to our reception, would you still speak to me?

10. Please say yes.

    25 days til my wedding and I’m still trying to gear myself up for the ole wedding diet to begin lol. I think I can, I think I can…

  2. that was the only time I thought I would lose my mind during wedding plan was over that stupid guest list!

  3. Oh please, you do NOT need to go on a wedding diet. The ice cream and cookies are obviously looking good on you these days (read: you are tiny). And 122 days?! What?!

  4. Wedding planning is so much fun, isn’t it? 🙂 Hang in there – it will ALL work out in the end. It always does!!!

  5. My friends rented some kind of old car (uhhh, I dont even know enough about cars to know how old it was, but our dresses were like 50’s inspired) to take them from the chapel to the ceremony — which was maybe 100 yards away. It made for super adorable photos though.

    Oh man, I get about 5 hours of sleep every night. So basically I’m wasted all day. Thank goodness I don’t drive to work, but clearly I need to start getting more sleep.

    Also, SO MUCH wedding excitement!! 122 days is going to go by quickly (not to cause you to need more Xanax or anything…) 🙂

  7. you are funny.I mean just darn funny. You make me laugh and smile and want to eat and get in the kitchen all at the same time when I visit your blog!

  8. Zainab says:

    Oh please lady! You do not need to go on a diet! You look fabulous! Wait tell me you kidding with the insomnia? No way I sleep up to 6hrs anymore and I drive to work everyday. Eeek

  9. Sooooo excited about all the wedding plans! Oh you reminded me NEEEEED heirloom tomatoes!

  10. Kathleen says:

    I have green zebras in my garden this year for the first time! So beautiful to look at and delicious to eat!

    And judging by your photos, I don’t think I’d be worrying about a diet!

  11. #2. I didn’t think for a second you’d give up sugar. Can we still be friends?

  12. cheri says:

    Hi Joanne, yes, cute car, wow! 122 days, you look great!!

  13. Traci says:

    Ahhh! Wedding excitement! I vote YES to renting “one of those” all in white, and take plenty of pictures in it. Do what you want! I’m just beginning to plan my wedding, so please keep us posted about how everything is going.

  14. Natalie says:

    giving up sugar now guarantees an unhappy bride and that just isn’t worth it!!! 🙂 glad you know that too!

  15. Barbara says:

    Re #5: I better not EVER get in the car!
    Been there done that on diet panic. I actually have a five day emergency diet that models use when they need to take it off fast. Works, but doesn’t last.
    Good luck!

  16. Pam says:

    I think you would look great in one of those cars – especially if it was white. Pretty! Enjoy the countdown to your wedding. I know it can be stressful but it will all be worth it in the end!

  17. Haha, I totally feel that “let me stuff my face now and diet tomorrow” attitude sometimes! Also, don’t avoid sugar–what will I do for dessert recipes?

  18. Oh man, it’s coming so soon!

    Interesting tidbit about the sleep. That explains so much. My 2 year old still wakes me up from time to time (like last night, at 1:30 am), and I have insomnia. I read last year that severely bad things happen to your mental state if you don’t get at least 5 uninterrupted hours. Imagine months and months of that when you have an infant/ toddler. Not good. And doing that at 42+? Even more not good.

  19. I think I gave up Oreos a few months before my wedding day. And then I completely binged on 2 packages the night of. Isn’t that what all newlyweds do?

  20. P says:

    #9 — definite yes! I saw an old-style car parked at Safeway the other day and it looked much more pristine and well-kept than the cars it was parked next to! 😛

  21. Kate says:

    We have Reeses Oreos at home I am trying desperately to avoid.

  22. You will totally do awesome on your diet! Just eat healthy and move more and great things will happen . . . even with a few cheats. Jealous that you have heirloom tomatoes at all. I’m on the lookout but no sightings yet. Not to totally ruin everything, but Mega Stuf Oreos are waaaaay better than Double Stuf.

  23. Joanne you do not need a diet! Just limit dessert to 2x a week and you’ll be good ;p

  24. Eileen says:

    Dude, no dieting. Having a wedding is already stressful enough, right? Why stress yourself out more? Take care of yourself! The car, though — that is totally a yes. 🙂

  25. Rent it! I totally approve!

  26. First off, I would totally still be friends with you if you drove up to your wedding in that. Second, I had a panic attack over heirloom tomatoes today too because the salad place I usually eat at for lunch ran out of their heirloom panzanella salad and I was aghast. Not okay!

  27. debbie says:

    I think the car is great! I also don’t get much sleep. I’m lucky if I get 7 but it usually is around 6 hours.

  28. I’m gonna try to have a fairly hardcore diet go down a few months prior to my wedding too-good luck!!

    and I kinda like the car 😛

    and I agreeee about the sleep! I need my 8 hoursss

  29. Kelly says:

    Yay, it’s getting closer! Oh boy, the guest list wasn’t our favorite part either but the car looks like it would be a ton of fun 🙂

  30. You wouldn’t last a second giving up sugar.
    Neither would I.
    See? We’re meant to be bff.
    Now, send me the cookies.
    And p.s: you’re perfect the way you are anyway hey!

  31. Hotly Spiced says:

    Absolutely you need to arrive at the church in one of those cars – gorgeous. Good luck with the guest list saga – I don’t know of any bride who hasn’t gone through it. I can’t believe I didn’t eat an Oreo my whole time in New York – and it sure looks like you have some to spare! xx

  32. Good luck with the wedding dieting…although you look beautiful now! Ugh, wedding guest list arguments with mothers are the pits. I’m so glad I’m done with that, haha.

  33. I think that you should go with the car, pretty cool. I think that you would impress your guest at your wedding.

  34. sandra says:

    I love the car idea – beautiful – but at what price??

    I know I am probably too late but – throw the ice cream and oreos away!! don’t binge. It will only be harder in the morning…
