Thanksgiving

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ ***FLASH BACK*** There is No Better Friend Than a Sister...

I wrote this post three years ago, and to this day, it's one of my favorites! And as I frantically pack the fam up for our trip to Chicago, I can't help but remember sitting at my sister's kitchen table writing this post, super hung over, and waiting to hear back from the police. Yeah... Three years ago, my car was stolen out of my driveway... Something we discovered as we were about to leave for the airport!! But, that's a whole other story! Anyway... I can't wait to just get there and hang with my family! And, bridey, remember, your family? Well, it's the only one you got, so don't allow petty bullshit (that may or may not happen over the holidays) to ruin relationships. Got it? Good!

Thanksgiving 2012:

Happy Thanksgiving brideys!! I hope you all made it to where you're supposed to be and are enjoying some time with family and friends. But, wherever you are I hope you are happy to be there... Me? I am quite happy. Yeah, my fucking car might have been stolen (Is There Really Always Something to be Thankful for?) with no word from the police, but I still managed to make it home (Chicago), and have been enjoying myself ever since. Plus, I have an awesome Thanksgiving story to tell these days...

The best part? Hanging with my sister. She is truly my bestie, and getting some time to chill out, and even do nothing with her is fun (seriously, we both passed out in her bed while watching Homeland). But, better than doing nothing or feeling comfortable enough to fall asleep basically spooning each other? Going out for dinner with our husbands, having a few dreamy cocktails and enjoying some real time together. And I am truly grateful for it. 

After so many rushed phone calls and being too busy to really catch up, as hung over as I might be as I write this, I am so happy to be sitting at her kitchen table watching her make sweet potato soufflé. I am happy to be exactly where I am. It doesn't happen as often as I would like, so just being here, living in the moment and not planning every detail (of my life and the lives of my brides) is simply lovely.

And because she's my sister, she asked me what this post has to do with weddings and brides, and all I said is "Nothing. It has to do with you. I hope my readers like seeing the softer side of BB."

That's all I got. Happy Thanksgiving Brideys!

XO,

BB

Happy Anniversary to My Sneaky Love... Why I Still Love You.

Today is my (our) anniversary. And the sad part? Neither of us remembered. Right? Pathetic! But, in our minds, it will always be the Friday after Thanksgiving... in Vegas... Who needs the actual date when you have Vegas? We eloped. Just him and me. And if you want to know more, then read BB's 5 Reasons Why I Eloped over on the Huffington Post, but now it's time to explain how we pulled it off, and the secret to why we still love each other so fucking much. So get out your notebook brideys, because I am about to spill the beans on two very important, life changing topics; sneakiness and love. Yeah, usually they don't mix, but in this case it was meant to be. 

There is No Better Friend Than a Sister...

Is There Really Always Something to be Thankful for?

You know how on Sunday I wrote a post about how "There is Always Something to be Thankful for"... Well, I spoke too soon. If you saw my posts on FaceBook and on Twitter yesterday, then you know that I literally had a rude awakening on such a lovely Monday morning. I walked out to my car, coffee in hand, ready to start a busy day before hopping a plane to see my folks, and my car had been stolen. Right? So after the shock wore off, my mind started racing... "Did I drop my keys near the car? Was I targeted? Did I park it somewhere else and forget?" But, then I realized... there was no mistake. My car was gone. 

Because There's Always Something to be Thankful for...

So, it's the week of Thanksgiving, and I swear that every time I turn around I see blog posts, FaceBook messages, and tweets about what people are thankful for, and why they are thankful for it. And I get it, I really do. But, as we near the actual day, I find myself getting a little bit eager to share with my readers what BB is grateful and thankful for too...

I know that I have earned a reputation for making the truth hurt, for being a tad bit bitchy and super honest, so I thought that I wouldn't go a changin' my 'tude because everybody else decided to be grateful and thankful for one day (maybe even a week) out of the year. So, I'd like to share a few painfully honest reasons why Bitchless Bride is thankful... I mean, it IS Thanksgiving after all... Mind if I share?
