Hey now, hey now, my {fiance's} back! and Wedding Wednesday

(Is the "My boyfriend's back" song stuck in your head now??)

I'm excited for today!! I'm not sure if you all have noticed, but MG has been kind of absent from my blog post happenings the last week plus, and that's because he was out of the country for work for about 10 days. He left on his birthday (boo!) and will be getting back this morning. Which means, come this afternoon, I'll be getting to see my main squeeze again!

So, altho we had 2 snow days, they weren't nearly as fun as if I had had my partner in crime to spend it with (but this also probably explains why I read a 500+ page book in 3 days). Luckily Cooper is always more than willing to step in for cuddles!

Tonight, though, I'm planning on making a special dinner for MG for his birthday since we didn't get to do anything special that day (other than say good-bye which wasn't fun).

A couple of weeks ago, MG had mentioned trying to make meatballs for a meal at some point--and being the good listener that I am, I looked into some recipes for just that. I'm planning on making chicken parmesan meatballs and I hope they turn out alright! (If so, I'll definitely post the recipe for you all to try, too).

I have a wedding planning update, too. MG had gotten our limo transportation arranged during the furlough and we had gotten a really decent deal on the wedding day transport, as well as transportation to the airport that Monday, but in the weeks following the conversation, MG's credit card was never charged. He reached out to the company several times, and no response.

So while MG was away, I took it upon myself to email the company to ask "what's up??" and I got a response that basically went like this:

"We didn't charge his card because we are in the process of selling the vehicle that he had requested and we aren't sure if we are going to get one to replace it"

Soooooo, what you're telling me is that you didn't think it was important to mention to someone who's looking to book your vehicle and services that you are selling this car?? Perhaps that might have come to mind when he gave you his credit card information for our deposit?? And then you didn't think to inform him later on when he was inquiring about what was going on with our reservation? The company obviously knew that this was the case when MG was trying to book it, because the owner said that that was why he didn't charge him right away. I don't understand some people and how they run their businesses. I see a Yelp and WeddingWire review in my near future.....

Luckily the coordinator at my reception site gave me a good recommendation when I told her about this on Friday and we're actually getting an even better price from her person than from the original company anyway. (Take that, Titan Limo!)
I'm hoping that the fiasco with our cake, my make up artist having to cancel because her daughter ended up getting engaged and scheduling her wedding for the same date as mine, and this limo stuff aren't signs of things to come....really really hoping! Happy that they've all been relatively easy fixes so far, though.

  2. Glad to hear that MG is back. I know how hard it is to be without your man for long periods of time!!! And despite the fact that you've had to deal with a few bumps in the wedding planning road, at least they are all happening when there's still time to fix them and not like the week of the wedding or something!!! Hoping everything from here on out goes smoothly for you:)

  3. Yah for MG being back! Glad you took it upon yourself to get the limo in check. Funny how things work out sometimes, but now you have better deal! Just remember, its one day, but the marriage is a lifetime. And going to need the meatball recipe!

  4. It seriously amazes me the lack of communication some people have in the wedding business (probably other businesses too, but this is obv at my forefront right now). Glad you found an even cheaper place!

  5. That is so frustrating! A simple phone call to you would not have been a hard act! Happy snow days to you!

  9. Stopping by from the linkup. Wow! I've heard so many stories about sketchy limo companies and other vendors. Definitely not good business! You would think small businesses would have EXCELLENT customer service these days. Glad it worked out in the end, though. Our photographers are a husband and wife team and the wife is pregnant.. due about 6 weeks before our wedding. Not sure if she will even be there! They're very professional and they have a back up though. Phew!

  10. Yay! I'm so happy you have him back! I find that the 5-10 day trips are the hardest! Even harder than the deployment.
