Last Post As A Singleton!

What's happened in the last two days...

Three salon visits and $120 later, my hair is back to normal condition. Yay!

Hoop was laid off from his job.

One of our guests was taken to the emergency room. He's OK.

Three more guests were added to the roster last minute. Grr.

My two girlfriends (also Bloggers) threw me a kick-ass bachelorette party.

I got way toasty and molested a pink feather boa, not necessarily in that order.

I was so hungover this morning, I forgot to put mascara on one eye.

The wedding is taking place in exactly 24 hours from now!

Thanks for all the advice and well wishes! I'll see you on the flipside.

P.S. Don't forget to go to
Jay's for the WWC on Tuesday!

Remember... it's not too late to run away and shack up with me! No? Crap... well... have a great one Tinkie!

They laid Hoop off right before he gets married? F'ing Bastards!

Companies do crap like that all the time. I used to work for a company that laid people off 3 weeks before Christmas 3 straight years. Unbelievable.

Anyway, Saturday is going to be a great day! I'm totally not planning on crashing the reception at all. So, no worries. LOL

I'm sorry to hear about Hoop's job...but y'all will still have a helluva time this weekend!

I could totally crash the reception, you aren't that far from here. Hmmm, I don't really have much planned this weekend.

Seriously Congrats! Go wed and honeymoon. Enjoy!

$120.00 for three visits! That is one cut & colour here - mind you he does a really good job and I could find it a little cheaper.

AArrgh about Hoop's job! I'm sure he will find something right away when you get back though.

Have a wonderful wedding tomorrow!

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

Sorry about Hoops job. Try not to think about that until all the wedding and honeymoon are over.

Sorry to hear about Hoop's job.

I laughed about your hangover story. :p

Hoping to see lots wedding pics on here soon. :D

Hoop was laid off from his job.

That is not cool! I do hope he bounces back after the festives.

Have an awesome day, my dear. If anyone deserves a pain-free, smooth wedding right now it is you.


Much <3!

A lay-off is sure a kick in the ass, isn't it? :-(

The main thing is that you guys continue to enjoy. This close, it's pretty much on auto-pilot, so there's not much you can do about it now. LOL


At 07 November, 2008, Blogger Pamer said...

oh man..sorry to hear about Hoop...but very happy to hear about mascara on only one eye. That really made me laugh.

I really hope there is pics of you humping the boa

have a great day tomorrow, i know it'll be spectacular, fabulous, fantastic and various other adjectives that refer to it's stupendousness

Sorry to hear about the job... hope you guys are hanging in there okay.

24 hours from now it's be MRS. Hoop!! WOOOHOOO!! Hope your wonderful day is nothing short of PERFECT!!

What kind of asshat lays someone off before they get married.

Don't worry about it. It's an ok thing. Have loads of fun.

that totally sucks about hoop!

WhooHoo, hair fixed and wedding festivities imminent (or however you spell it --it's Friday night and I'm on my 2nd VERY STRONG homemade margarita-- come visit and I'll make you one or three)!!

Try to not think about Hoop's job. (A couple of my margaritas will fix that, I promise!!)
Think about honeymoon instead.
Think about being Mrs. Hoop!!!!

I'll pray on this end that the job stuff gets untangled for your return. And I'll do a home haircut to make up for the money you just had to spend fixing yours...

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger furiousBall said...

ok, Mrs. Hoop, best wishes to you two on your big day

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger Mouse said...

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!! I hope everything goes smoothly and you and Hoop have a wonderful day!!

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

I'll be thinking of you guys tomorrow - here's hoping that the insanity getting to tomorrow makes tomorrow run very smooth indeed!!!

Nice - lay a guy off right before he gets married. UGH.

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife a/k/a Glass_Half_Full said...

At this point? NOTHING matters but you and Hoop and y'alls happy day.

If the food aint right? The dress hem is a little long? The band/music is a little off key? Some adult beverages will fix it all.

The job? "What job?" It's honeymoon and all about "us" time. It's the only time you'll have for this for a long time.

I sure hope you give your comments one more read before the walk down the isle. I so wish I could see you. I'm so happy for y'all!!!!!!

Takin' me back to me & DH's special day!

Squeeeeeeeeee for FUN and LOVE for y'all!

Happy Wedding!!

I am soo exciting for you!!

Happy Honeymoonitis!! :)


although I'm very sorry about Hoops job--bad move on the companies part, from what you say about him, they made a big mistake.

Thinking of the two of you Mrs. C Tink!
You'be better take a picture of your fairy dust garter for all your male blogger buddies!

I just will be happy seeing pics of you and Hoop and uh...the desserts :)

Yay Tink!!! "Gooble Gobble Gooble Gobble... One of Us! One of Us!!" LOL! ok, it's not that bad... I'm mostly joking. ;)

Congratulations once again, and we'll see you when you get back... old married lady.

I am so very happy for you and Hoop!

And I feel his pain on the lay off. So sorry about that.

At 07 November, 2008, Blogger sheilah said...

Whoa! Way sorry about Hoop's job. I think a lot of alcohol at the reception may soften the blow (at least until you get back from your honeymoon).

Hang in there. Have a great wedding, an even-better wedding night and a kick-ass honeymoon.

Well, from what I saw today, all went wonderfully! Tink was simply stunning as you all can imagine, and the Hoop was quite dapper! It was a great ceremony and I admit to shedding a tear or two myself. CONGRATULATIONS once again Tink and Hoop! And Tink, thank you SO MUCH, for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! May you both "live long and prosper" for many years to come!
PS get me a copy of that Indian prayer your grandfather read! :)

Congratulations on the wedding part! Sympathies on the losing the job part.

Woot! No longer living in sin! (JOKING!!!!!) Seriously though, I hope your wedding was fantastic, and that you're having a great time on your honeymoon. Also, I know you guys will be ok even though Hoop was laid off because we all know he'll find something else, but MAN that's sh*tty timing, and I was sad to hear of it.
See you when you get back!

At 10 November, 2008, Blogger Foo said...

Tink, sorry to hear about Hoop's job. You've got enough on your plate right now and you shouldn't have to (have had to) deal with having that hanging over your head on your happiest day.

You're about to embark on a great adventure. Bon voyage!

At 10 November, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

Oh, NO! I'm so sorry that Hoop got laid off.

You're a MARRIED WOMAN now! WOOT! I was thinking of you guys this weekend. ;)
