Uh, um, I look so chunky today, what's, goody, pervs, happy sunday.

I should be in church today, but I'm, not, but I'm gonna try and go back to it next week.

I have to like ease myself on in.

But right now I have all the laundry here that I will be taking to my mom's house to do like.

I do each and every week.

And the exciting thing about doing laundry.

This week is that my mom she bought me, uh, I don't know, if I showed this on camera on my birthday, but she bought, um, uh, what she call it a laundry basket for me on my birthday for my birthday, and it has wheels.

So I can roll it it's such a hassle, trying to like pick up the whole basket and carry it from the car all the way up into my house and then back down from the apartment and over to the car and then up her stairs.

When I get to her place it's a lot of transportation, I am not the strongest person in the world and those laundry baskets, be very heavy.

But this I used it for the first time just a few minutes ago, and it was so much better.

I was just rolling it everywhere.

I carried it down the stairs, but it wasn't too hard, because they had like really good handles on it too.

But if I wanted to I could have just taken the stairs.

And even when I'm coming home, if I don't feel like carrying the whole thing up the stairs, I can just I can just use the elevator, um, but I would still be able to roll it like to the stairs from my car and like to my apartment after I I walk off the stairs, um, even if I decide not to take the elevators just so much easier like something so small is like so big believe it or not, I don't understand this, but I don't understand why laundry baskets and wagons and all the stuff that I was looking for are so expensive like who would have thought they'd be expensive, but anything with wheels.

They just like upped the price on it like up the price.

So yes.

So, um, our agenda for today is to go to mom's house.

We have to edit videos.

We have to edit pictures for the clothes on our website.

And we have to deal with some wedding matters.

I have all dang it.

I might have to go back upstairs.

Dang it.

I was going to get the names and stuff of the caterer.

They probably have it on the website, um the names of the caterers because the people that we picked, and we were going to sign with they gave us a price like last year.

And when we went to do it again, the price has completely changed.

It is like a thousand dollars more and I'm, not about to pay an extra thousand dollars for food.

I'm, just not going to do it so I'm going to email or call other caterers to get a quote on them.

Hopefully if they have a new quote from the last time we got quoted on, because I remember them being more than being more expensive.

The last time if they are still price or cheaper, we'll probably go with one of those, um and also, um.

I did the save the dates so they're being mailed out.

I should probably they said that I'll get it.

No later than april 20th, april 20th.

But the last time they came within like three or four days so I'm, hoping that I get them this week as soon as I get them, we're gonna mail it out to our guest.

And so when we go over there, it's we're gonna go over to mom's house, we have to look, and I have to make a list of all the guests and stuff like that and then contact them to get their addresses.

Sadly, sadly, I had to remove one of those people from my guest list.

It's, very sad that this had to come to this is very sad without getting given too much details.

Maybe someday I will.

But right now I feel like it's, not the right time.

But it was very clear from the very beginning of my engagement, like the day that I told this person I was engaged that they were not supporting me.

They were not happy for me.

And just because I knew this person for so long.

I continued to allow them to try and be a part of the whole process and stuff like that.

But after like me, trying to give this person so many chances and I'm, not seeing any changes.

I had to reach out to them yesterday and tell them that, hey, you're, not going to be as involved in this wedding.

As we originally planned it's, very sad, because I didn't think I'm calling me naive.

But I didn't think that I would have anybody a part of my group.

My clique, my whatever that wouldn't be supporting me.

I didn't think there was gonna be any drama or anything surrounding my wedding and stuff.

So it sucks that it has come to this, because I gave this person a million and a million and one chances to make it right.

And they just kept making it even more wrong.

So this is this is where we've come to this is where we've come to it's sad.

So yeah, um.

So, yeah, so that is what's on the agenda today.

When we go over to my mom's house, we are going to look up prices for other caterers again.

I feel like we're going to be in this like never-ending cycle with these caterers and we're also going to get the addresses we're going to make out the guest list again and get the addresses of our guests.

So we can send out the save the dates.

And then hopefully we can work on the actual invitations next week and send those out so like save the dates.

And the invitation are coming back to back back to back back to back.

I think on google, they said, you're supposed to send out invitations like three months prior to the wedding.

So we still have a lot of time, but we definitely have to get to still save the dates out like within the next week, or two there's like a whole tornado or hurricane or something going on out here right now.

So windy and blew this whole thing up the water.

And the wind is like going so crazy, right now it was worse than this before, but look it up there and invented too.

It bends.

This little piece, it's.

So creepy, I heard that they expect they're expecting it to get really bad tonight.

But I guess they're expecting it to get bad this afternoon, too.

And we lost power last night at my place because of the storm, oh that's, what fell from the ground I'm from the ceiling? I want to see, oh my gosh, oh, my god, this all fell from the ceiling.

It's raining, yes, it's raining.

I always feel like my hair done my hair's, not flying around too badly.

But it's cold.

I think we should go inside because I just finished under it.


We can't go inside we're, storm chasers.

She locks me out, oh, look at that.


Recording here on that side of the building jonah made a little bed over here inside the blanket, you make a bed anywhere to get comfortable, huh.

Let's go in the house it's starting to rain starting to come on down.

Stop it.

Stop chewing.

My shoe, you guys, I'm having issues with gcam.

I keep getting a message that says, lens error, I'm actually surprised I'm recording with you guys right now, I'm afraid to turn you off, because I don't know if you're gonna turn back on I'm sad right now I've had, oh, ow.

Ow, ow.

Ow, ow.

I've kind of had a rough weekend, not just with the wedding stuff.

But also this camera is making me nervous and something else.


The other thing that's like bothering me, I like the weather today, it's really cold and icky, there's other there's.

Another issue that I'm having but I'll, spare you guys the details.

I could rush home and do the photo shoot while the sun is still out.

So I can get some good natural lighting, and I do all the makeup before work.

So I can be just.

I can just run into just setting up and putting on the.
