I've been told no bride will ever been the same after her first trip to the Paper Source. And I concur. I spent time their both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was the quicker trip of the two (Music Guy was along) I picked out the paper and envelops for our Save the Dates. I was pretty happy we picked out the style in no time. We both agreed on it and we were out the door.
Not so quick....We got home and the paper we picked out was different than we thought. It was as thin as printer paper. So Sunday afternoon I headed back to the Back Bay to get heavier paper. They do not carry the circle paper in white in anything other than normal paper weight. Which means I had to buy a circle cutter and bigger sheets. Which is fine expect for the dumb bunny who helped me showed me the type I wanted but decided to sell me larger paper of what I had just returned.
But the second time wasn't a bust, I spent a good hour plus looking through all of their books of invites. It is a lot easier to choose when you're looking at it in person rather than on line. I found some really clever ideas and a lot of really stupid ideas. Cowboy boot anyone? I also wrote down some of the couples websites to stalk their wedding site for even more ideas. I was disappointed in some of the couples. I was imagining them to be a little more classy but it looked like they only got their invites right. Very strange. So at some point this week it's back to return the paper.
We had a great weekend. Got a lot down around the our place (i'm having company next weekend so i've got to make sure it's up to par for her). Friday night we headed to Ironside in Charlestown with the Hicksters to watch the game. Even though we got their an hour before the game was to start we still had a good 10 people a head of us for dinner. We ended up watching a few innings and heading back to our place and getting pizza. Which I think is just as much fun! It was so crowded I felt i was getting hip checked every two seconds. Some dude figured the way to get my attention to move out of his way was to push me in the back and then to stand there as I didn't move the the side he preferred. At that point I just looked at him and said F'in go around me. So I was not apposed to leaving after another 20 minutes.
Saturday was housework said paper trip and the Sox. We went to Lir on Boylston St to watch the Sox. MurDogs sister had reserved tables and it really was a pretty good place to watch the game. We knew during the 8th it was going to be a long game so we shared a cab with A & B of Fave couple and headed back home to stay up until almost 2pm to watch the Sox lose. That sucked. BUT they'll come back tonight! Great Pats game, this team is the real deal!!! Fun as hell to watch.
Am I the only person who still watches Desperate Housewives?
Also Am I the only person who watched Keeping Up with the Kardashian's on E?
LETS GO RED SOX!
