- My weird dreams never cease to amaze me. Last night, Andrew and I were sleeping under a layer of shredded cheddar cheese. And the cheese turned into a blanket. And then I asked Andrew if we should eat the blanket... because it was technically cheese. In a different dream, I purchased a raffle ticket from Rialeilani, who was selling them for $35 for a chance to win a blanket to support a church. That's an expensive raffle ticket, but I guess I thought it seemed like a good idea at the time. Where do I come up with this stuff?
- We're going to see Sufjan Stevens in a few weeks! He's finally touring! I am so excited! Even if we have to drive for hours upon hours to get there... it will be one of the best experiences of my life. AND! I'll get to cross another item off my 101 Things in 1001 Days list! Woot! Speaking of Sufjan, Andrew, some of his groomsmen, and a very close friend will be performing one of his hymns at our wedding. I think their performance will easily be one of my favorite moments of our wedding day.
- Prepare to have your head melted because this is the weirdest thing ever. Maybe even weirder than this. Yesterday, I was walking to a meeting a few blocks from my office when I saw a woman walk past me who looked so much like Andrew's ex-girlfriend that I had to do a double-take. When I realized it definitely wasn't her, I continued my journey and forgot all about the encounter. That is... until I received a comment from Jive Turkey saying: "Just found your blog through Hillary, which is funny, because I live in Pittsburgh too (like, 5 minutes from where some of your awesome engagement portraits were taken), and yet I only found you with the aid of another blogger who lives in CANADA."
Okay, that's not so weird. But I clicked the link to her blog and started flipping through her flicker pics. That's when I noticed that SHE LOOKS STRIKINGLY SIMILAR TO ANDREW'S EX-GIRLFRIEND. With my heart racing (ok, not really but I'm trying to build some excitement here!), I commented on her blog asking if she was by chance on the same street as me at 1:45 p.m. And you guys? She totally WAS! It turns out we work next door to each other. It amazes me that each day, not only the blogosphere (that's for you, Kerri!) continues to shrink, but this whole damn world keeps getting smaller. On one hand, I kind of love it. But on the other hand, I want to crawl in a hole and cry while my head melts off.
- Finally, I bought my rehearsal dinner dress but am a little iffy about it. It makes me look very sophisticated and fits nicely.... but something about it doesn't feel like "me." I'll have to model it for you and get your opinion on the matter--because I can't seem to find a picture of it online.

Melts in your blog, not in your hand
A few tidbits for you, bullet-point style...
