I did not get to get my Monday post in yesterday due to the Internet being down at work all day yesterday. Yes, I blog at work. I don't have enough work to last me a whole entire day but when an email or a phone call do pop up, I handle them right away.
First thing's first - I finally got my Lilly Pulitzer planner! I got the small size in "Checking In" because honestly, I have enough junk in my purse that if I got the large one, it would totally take over. The BFF works part-time at a cute gift shop that sells Lilly items so I got it at cost! Holler!!
I also picked up (at cost, might I add) a Scout lunch box (because apparently I'm in 3rd grade) and a small Scout bag to use as my new make-up bag! Got both bags in Petallica Green because the roomie has the lunch box in Cool Brite Paisley, which I originally had my eye on. They are more lime green in person. I love the Scout bags because they clean up super easy and are perfect to take on the boat or to the beach!
Saturday night I had a wedding for work and encountered my very first GROOMZILLA! I originally knew this would be a "different" wedding after I realized I hadn't spoken to the bride once. It was alllll the groom that was planning the wedding. Odd. Now, my job title is the "Event Facility Coordinator," which basically means I facilitate the building..make sure all of the doors are unlocked, make sure my staff has set up the tables and chairs according to the layout, make sure the caterer knows where everything is and how it works in the kitchen and then check all of the vendors out at the end of the night and lock up the building. That's pretty much it. I am NOT the event planner! As much as I would enjoy doing this for the out of town couples that we most of the time see here, I do not get paid to do that. Then again, I'm not just going to kick up my heels on my desk and watch the wedding crash and burn, so a lot of the time I'm stuck coordinating the ceremony and reception..making sure everyone is lined up correctly, walking down the aisle at the correct time, etc.
Ok, now that I'm done with my rant, I will explain my reason for naming this groom a GROOMZILLA.
-He would call ME if a vendor didn't return his phone call after like an hour. Dude, I have nothing to do with that! I'm sure they're just busy!
-I was stuck setting up ceremony chairs on the beach, 30 minutes prior to the ceremony. Keep in mind, I'm wearing pants and the heat index is probably close to 100 degrees.
-The bride and groom TALKED to each other during the WHOLE CEREMONY. Who does that??!?!
-Like I mentioned above, I got stuck coordinating the ceremony because they had absolutely no idea what was going on.
-During the Father / Daughter dance, apparently GROOMZILLA busts in the kitchen and yells at the caterer because he doesn't know where him and his bride are sitting. That's because you had a seated dinner and UNDER RSVP'd. More people showed up that he confirmed with the caterer. Of course the caterer handled it.
-Freaks out because the lights weren't dim enough to his liking. I get it, I like dim lights, too, but there is no need to freak out. All you have to do is ask politely with a smile on your face and I will take care of it. Mmk, Pumkin? :)
-No tip. Of course I NEVER expect a tip, because I usually don't do anything to deserve a tip. But he SAW me out on the beach setting up those chairs by myself, among other things. A little something would have made me feel appreciated.
I'm sure there is more, but my rant has gotten long enough and I'm sure your eyes are crossed by now if you are even still reading it. :)
Sunday, the BFF and I went to our friends' Lauren & Jake's housewarming party. They recently bought a SUPER cute house in the Old Village part of Mt. Pleasant. A mixture of their friends and family of all ages were there and it was catered with some deeeelicious food. Always a plus. We thought it would be the perfect time for Jake to propose since all of his friends and family were in town for the party, but Jake must have not been on the same page as us. I left my camera in the car, so sadly, there are no pictures. :(
Cameron starts his last semester today for his MBA at the Citadel! Woohoo!
That's all for now! Lunch time! Have a great Tuesday!
