Well, HMPFMW junkies, I’ve begun my transformation.  I’m officially a wifey, and while I’m no longer planning my own wedding (still paying it off, though – crikey), I’m still wed-obsessed.  So it’s only right that I channel the obsesh into a new blog.  Ch-check it out:  Oh, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter if you aren’t alredz: @TulleLaLa.

I heart you all – you’re the best!  xo




So, the New Year’s rez clearly isn’t going as planned.  The tending to my blog thing.  The real HMPFMW junkies know they can grab updates every Wednesday at Tweet My Wedding, and they also know that I’ve been MIA from this blog for reasons other than work and laziness.  Insert drum roll….. It’s because I’m PLANNING MY WEDDING!  No, you didn’t read that wrong.  Fiance and I set a date and are in full-fledged plan mode.  Don’t pass out!

In fact, a lot has happened since I last blogged.  Let me see… started a new job (FINALLY!), which has been fab.  Set a date… booked a venue… picked out dresses for the BM’s… booked a photog (a fab one, btw)… met with a florist who sucked (he mentioned baby’s breath and I almost vomited)… booked a different florist who is glorious and won’t charge me $5,392, and kind of found a hair stylist!  I’m making progress!  In typical BB2B fashion, I’m obvi behind on sending save-the-dates, but don’t you fret.  They’re in the works and most of my out-of-town guests have already been contacted so they know when the big day is.  I can’t believe I’m actually going to be a Mrs.  For real now.


BB2B’s… you gotta check out these ah-mazingly adorable and fun wedsite options at  For $49 a YEAR you can design and maintain a super-cute wedding website to share all the deets with your guests.  Best part?  It can match your invitations. What?  I’m a sucker for coordination.  And you should be, too.

I know what you’re thinking.  This sounds hard.  I don’t know how to “make a website.” (From the looks of this blog, I’m sure you can tell I don’t, either).  But the fab news is – it’s crazy easy.  You just choose one of their gorg templates, follow their easy click-to-publish instructions, and voila!  Even the most tech-unsavvy BB2B’s can play!  You can upload as many photos as you want, blog about your planning, post your gift registries… and my fave feature is the online RSVP – your fashion forward wedsite basically pays for itself in the stamps you’ll save.  Cha-ching!

Still not 100%?  Nearlyweds gives you a free trial – you can test drive all the features, play with as many design templates you want, and figure out the money stuff later.  I will definitely be creating a site with Nearlyweds… once we set a date, that is.

do you heart the simplicity, or what? loves.

Like 8 million of my friends/acquaintances are engaged.  All planning like banshees.  Facebook status updates like “Registering!” or “Band.  Check!”  Overachievers.  Even my un-engaged friends have gone wild and are emailing me pictures of rings and dresses and venues with subject lines like, “To die.”  Is that what starts happening at this age?  I’m sure you can imagine that my status updates don’t have anything to do with weddings.  No, my Facebook updates are usually lame – weather complaints or “It’s Friday!” Boring, I know.  Maybe I’ll delete my account.  I don’t need middle school classmates spying on my life anyway.

In any event, everyone’s engaged or about to be.  And they are like, planning maniacs.  The opposite of me.  Next.

How about Kendra’s US Weekly cover?  She cracks me up.  The change in her body = “culture shock.”  How can you not love?

Um, that would be a NO.  Obvi, he was picking Vienna Mocha Chunk.  He basically told Tenley that he wasn’t attracted to her.  What a catastrophe!  IMO, Tenley is a snooze – sweet girl – but 100% snoozefest, and Vienna is fun, but too young to get married.  Eh, I just work here.

Now, the countdown is on til Bachelorette.  What a loser I am.  Thank God Kendra is starting back up!

In other news, I’ve been stressed beyond beyond.  I have a ton going on at work (riveting, I know), and it’s actually been taking a toll.  Maybe now you understand my unhealthy obsesh with reality TV – I just need to decompress when I get home at 8:30pm each night after a way-too-long work day.  I also fell off the workout wagon.  Jillian would hate me.  After we got back from our weekend away a couple weeks ago, I just have not been to the gym.  But I have been to Dunkin’ Donuts to grab chocolate chip muffins in the morning.  Delish, but muffins = muffin top and I need to put a stop to the madness before I undo all the work I did to get rid of my bat arms.

I spent mine at a wedding.  Read all about it at Tweet My Wedding.

In other news, it’s lent.  I debated giving up chocolate or cheese (I gave up cheese one year and it was horrif) or soda, but I opted for more of a meaningful challenge this year.  No cell phone use or radio in the car until Easter.  So I’m forced to have some peace and quiet and reflect on my life rather than numb my brain listening to Young Money.  I decided this after arriving at work today, so I talked on the cell AND listened to the radio in the car this morning, but not on my way home and no mas until Easter.  I’ll let you know how it goes.

What else.  Well, I fell of the fitness wagon this weekend since we were away.  I mean, there was a gym at the hotel and I so should have sucked it up and just worked out, but nope.  So, tomorrow it’s back to the elliptical and the 30-Day Shred.

I hope you all had a fab long weekend…


As annoying as she can be, I really felt bad for Ali.  What a disaster!  I was trying to put myself in her shoes and what. a. nightmare.  (Although because I’m a total romantic risk-taker, I would have said screw the job).

What do you think?  Did she make the right decision?  I mean, it would be completely devastating if you totally gave up your job and then ended up with nothing at the end.  Mortifying.  I’m so curious to see what she has to say to him next week.  You saw the previews, right – how she calls?  OMG.  Just get Vienna outta there.

Things I need to do

1. Shred with my Jillian Michaels DVD.

2. Finish cleaning the house.

3. Make dinner.

4. Eat dinner.

5. Return like 84 phone calls (Mom, future Mother-in-law, friends in other time zones…).

6. Finish the laundry that Fiance started.

I have to do all this before Desperate Housewives starts.  I could seriously give a crap about the Super Bowl.

What I’m doing instead

1. Blogging stupid lists.

2. Wasting time reading people’s Facebook status updates (because I really need to know that my friend’s friend is “WHO DAT?” right now).

3. Reading important information on Perez Hilton.

4. Thinking about the things I should be doing before Desperate Housewives starts.

OMG.  Need to get my act together.  I’ll have you know that I WORKED today.  Yes, on a Sunday.  I know – inhumane.  But after that, I had to RUSH (typical) to the mall to find a dress for my friend’s Valentine’s Day nuptials and while no children busted in on me today, the mall closed before I could decide and in typical BB2B fash, I walked out with 3 dresses and will need to select one and return the others.  It really never ends.

But on that note, I should really put a stop to the madness and get my shred over with.  Can’t have bat arms for the wedding.
