< back to blog



April 26, 2011

Not much annoys me so much that I have to publicize it out loud via blog, but I fear as though the time has come to do so…

1. The Royal Wedding…Otherwise known as the only newsworthy story to report as of now. Forgive me, but what about the devastated people of Japan, the people in Libya fighting with their leader, our economy and the GAS situation, government, etc? I am all for weddings {duh!}, but this is getting ridiculous my friends… sure I am going to tune in Friday morning to check out THE dress, but I could care less about what a former bridesmaid of Princess Diana or people that knew Kate when she was a small child have to say–please report more important things so I can continue to educate myself on worldly issues. Shame on you newscasters and reporters!!

2. Leann Rimes…is there anyone else out there who cannot stand this idiot? I ditest her in every sense of the word and think she should just stay out of the media spotlight. Her new marriage, her new enormous “enhancements”, and her anorexic figure–give that girl a sandwich, something other than a crocheted tablecloth to wear, and tell her to go away.

3. Home Improvements…just when we think we get one thing knocked out and ready to accomplish more, something inevitable happens–issues with living in a 70-year old house I assume, but I like to decorate, not to patch holes and redo drywall.

4. Rude People…being rude annoys the heck out of me, but being rude just because you’re miserable and want others to be is certainly not necessary in my book–another reason to kill them with kindness I tell ya!

5. Slacker Vendors/Contacts… if I email/call you and I am PAYING you, you have 48 hours to respond–if not, this gal gets cranky and I will not be providing “good/positive” feedback for you. Ignoring me only fuels the fire and I promise I’ll keep tracking you down until you return my message. =)

Alright, Im done now–thanks for letting me vent. Do you ever just have to get it out and say “ahhh now I feel better?” Happy Tuesday my friends…as we speak, I am getting the hair and makeup done {hopefully feeling great} and getting ready for bridal portraits–yay!!

  1. Karen says:

    Haha! Your post made me laugh out loud! I do agree the coverage for the Royal Wedding is over the top and frankly annoying.

  2. Kaley says:

    Oh my gosh I have the same issue with some of our wedding vendors. I sent an email to our cake person Thursday and still haven't heard back from them! And our reception site will only take phone calls and emails on Wednesdays and thursdays. I mean seriously?! When someone is paying for your service you should provide actual service! Ugh!

  3. Kate says:

    I think I love you. No really, I do. This post just made my day brighter in the oddest of ways, espeically because you wouldn't think you being so peeved would make me so happy, right? Wrong! Wrong because I agree with EVERYTHING you mentioned! Royal wedding coverage is waaaaay overkill and makes us Americans look stupid, especially because from I understand we're covering it more than the English are! And Leann.. oh brother, you said it all!! Vendors who don't respond or who take their time getting back to you — I will never recommend to my colleges! Ugh… see. I feel better. You feel better. And yep, I love this post and you, my dear, for posting it!

  4. Jamie says:

    TOTALLY agree with everything!! This post just made my day, ha! Hope your bridal portraits go great..you will look gorgeous as always! Have a great day 🙂

  5. Laurel says:

    if you want to hear actual news, maybe try some different media outlets. NPR has extensive coverage on all topics you mentioned and they've barely, if at all, discussed the royal wedding. the new york times is a good source, too.

  6. Jamie says:

    Hahaha, I agree! I had just been thinking about how I cannot stand Leann Rimes or hearing about her wedding- and I love weddings too!

  7. So funny! Leann Rimes drives me crazy too!!! LOVE this post! Made me laugh! 🙂

  8. LC says:

    LOL!!! Sometimes you just gotta get it out! 🙂

  9. Christina says:

    Totally with you on the Leann Rimes thing. I saw a news blurb about her today cringed. Great, you learned from your stupid, selfish mistake. If nothing else, stop putting crap out there and rubbing it in your ex's faces.

    It's been a month now, and I still haven't seen wedding pictures from my photographers, despite promises for about a week after the wedding, another for last week and after inquiring yesterday, I've still heard nothing. It's so frustrating. I'm glad that you have my money and think I'm not a priority…rude!

  10. Karli says:

    Can I get an AMEN!?! Goodness, all the media on the Royal Wedding is ridiculous. & rude people.. Why can't they all just go away? Don't they know the golden rule??

  11. Beth McC. says:

    This post had me laughing at my desk!! I cant stand LeAnn Rimes- she just needs to go away!!!

  12. JulesJax says:

    Yeah they must think we are absoluitely OBSESSED with the wedding. I don't personally know anyone who cares. I also work in an environment where I hire vendors to do maintenance work and when they SLACK i somewhat enjoy calling them and letting them know i am going with a new vendor bc of their lack of professionalism!
    Have fun with your pics!

  13. Caroline says:

    Amen! I cannot stand LeAnn Rimes. I used to love Eddie Cibrian, but now ewwwww!!! And I hate when people don't return calls. It takes a lot for me to call you; so, call me back. Happy Tuesday!

  14. Lindsey says:

    I have NEVER liked Leann Rimes!! Ugh – she has always gotten on my nerves. I don't know how she snagged Eddie C. either because he is HOT and she is not!!! We'll see how long it lasts!! And rude people, well they just suck and need to go away! I think if you are rude to me, get ready, because I'll be rude right back!

    I do like the Royal Wedding stuff and am very excited to watch it. I have always been fascinated with the royal family and Princess Di. I love it all – but totally understand that's it's over kill for those who are not into it like me! ha ha! Have a great week!!!

  15. Britt says:

    LeAnn Rimes drives me crazy! I am glad I am not the only one:)

  16. Savanah says:

    I am so over hearing about the royal wedding too. I turned the news off yesterday because that's all they were talking about!

  17. Hailey says:

    I can NOT stand leann!!!

    Great post by the way ; )

  18. Jocelyn says:

    Soo funny — I agree with all of the above! YAY for bridal portraits!!!!

  19. Brianna says:

    Couldn't have said it better myself! Thanks for posting this – it made my day!

  20. Ashley says:

    I'm with you — I think America's obsession is that we don't have royalty, so I guess it is a kind of see how the other half live? Maybe? The only thing I care about is the dress haha otherwise (other than being happy 2 people found one another) I don't care. there has been WAY too much hype and then I read that $30mil was spent on it and I about died. That's just ridiculous.

    I can't stand Leann Rimes either — she use to be cute but now she is just kinda trashy.

    I am with you on the vendor thing — that really irked me when I was getting close to walking down the aisle.

    I about spewed my drink when I read "people I want to punch in the face" haha! There is definitely a lady here today who is miserable and just lashing out at the rest of us. She needs a shot or something!

  21. i totally agree! the royal wedding is so random and leann – she cheated! disgusting! but i do love home improvement shows 🙂

  22. I agree with you on many of these things! Have an amazing time with your bridal portraits!!! 🙂

  23. Love this post! Happy Tuesday lady! 🙂

  24. Taylor B. says:

    I'm right there with you on everything except the royal wedding! I've always been an anglophile but I completely understand how it can be overkill for everyone else in the world. I remembered when we were planning my wedding, my mom would kill those vendors with kindness so that they would be thinking nicely of you before the wedding/whatever you need them to do but you just don't recommend them to anyone else ever (unless their work is so fantastic that you can overlook how they act). I think that is the best way to get back at them for not being professional all the time.

  25. Cait says:

    great post girl haha seriously laughed out loud to some of these things- although like taylor, i'm actually excited about the royal wedding- eeks! i def understand what you mean though about the over kill and hoping to remember other things that are a bit more important than this wedding! have a good tuesday dear!

  26. Jamie says:

    Oh girl…I'm so with you on Leanne!

  27. Hope your bridal portraits went well:) You are so cute they will be adorable! I am with you on the "rude" people idea. I too hate rudeness…BIG pet peeve. I don't get the Lee Ann Rimes thing either. Wasn't she JUST divorced??? On the Royal Wedding…my take on it, is it's actually refreshing to have something postive/uplifting to think about. I have not forgot the people of Japan, but we need something like this to remind us that there is also good in this world. I totally get that it's TOO much…but I like a little peek into the world of Royalty. Will we get a sneak peek at your portraits?

  28. Hahaha, if feels good to just let it out sometimes! I couldn't agree more about the news…Royal Wedding, Charlie Sheen, etc all get way more attention than bigger things in our world that really matter. For example, there has been a genocide going on in Darfur for YEARS and it's rarely mentioned in the news, yet, something like the Royal Wedding is "BREAKING NEWS!"

  29. Heather KA says:

    do NOT like leann rimes either…yuck!!!

  30. Oh gosh YES. If I have to hear one more thing about the Royal Wedding…ugh.

  31. Lindsay says:

    Ahhhh finally someone else who doesn't like Leeann Rimes! I absolutely cannot stand her and wish she would just disappear.

  32. Leah says:

    Totally agree with all of your annoyances! I thought I was the only one in the world not planning my week around the Royal Wedding!

  33. B says:

    Agree agree agree! OH MYLANTA, I cannot stand LeAnn GROSS!

  34. I agree…as much as I love William and Kate…this is ridiculous…I have a military boyfriend, my focus is on our troops. This post just made me laugh. Some days we just need to VENT.

  35. I love this post and I couldn't agree more. If I see one more Royal Wedding thing I'll freak out. I'm trying my hardest not to mention it on my blog and risk gathering more publicity but I'm sooo close to cracking!!

  36. YES! I am applauding this right now, especially the LeAnn Rimes part. I met her over the summer while interning. I already wasn't a fan but now… Now I will be busy with another project whenever she turns up on my work radar again. Just ridiculous. rant over. 🙂

  37. Thank you!!! I thought I was the only person sick of hearing about the royal wedding! I'm sorry but it's sooooo annoying by now! And I thought the same thing when I saw that picture of Leann Rimes. That is the ugly "dress" ever.

    Ha, it feels good to vent sometimes doesn't it ? 🙂
