Five Things That Are More Important Than Blogging

Last Friday, I taunted you all with a promise of Taco Tuesdays. And then Tuesday came, and Tuesday went... and there were no tacos to be found.

The problem wasn't that there was a lack of tacos in my life. (I had tacos twice last weekend.) No, the problem was a lack of blogging.

I usually don't apologize for not posting because, well, I'm sure to everyone other than my mom it's about an "orange Starbust" on the upsetting scale. But I will apologize for this one because I can only imagine the pain of being promised tacos and then be left taco-less.

So I'm sorry.

It's just that blogging has been way down on the list this time. Like, at least sixth, after these five things:

1. Looking at wedding venues we can't afford
My dream wedding is in downtown Chicago with Taco Joint as my caterer, a Bloody Mary bar for dessert, and a 5411 Empanada truck as our midnight snack. But I can't afford that.

However, based on the info I could find online, I thought that the next closest thing could be in our budget: an art museum in downtown Fort Myers.


But sadly, once we went for a tour, I realized that I did not take into account the cake cutting fee, the bar service fee, the table fee, the door opening fee, the oxygen providing fee etc. etc. that quickly put this venue from in our budget to alongside the empanada truck.

2. Avoiding homelessness
Right now, Derrick and I are living in a town house for an amazing price because Derrick knows its owner. Unfortunately, this owner has decided that he no longer wants to be an owner and is selling the place. Basically, my time last week was been spent pretty evenly between theknot.com and Zillow. (With a little bit of panic sprinkled over top.)

The bright side is that it turns out my refusal to unpack these boxes in my living room suddenly seems a lot less like indefensible laziness to impressive foresight. 

3. Tacos
Just because I haven't been blogging about them doesn't mean I haven't been eating them.


4. Bachelorette Parties
I plan on writing another post on the unfortunate events that took place at my friend's Disney bachelorette party (which involved a camera charger and a man dressed as Goofy), but for now I will just leave it at this: My Labor Day weekend involved eating scrambled eggs amongst Lilo and Stitch, pineapple upsidedown cake shots, and punting screaming children out from under my feet.

5. House of Cards
I could say that I don't have time to blog but I hate when people say that they don't have time for something. Because no matter how busy you get, you can always find time if you want it bad enough.

Unless you're rewatching Season 2 of House of Cards. Then you don't have time for anything because how in the world are you supposed to blog when Frank Underwood is on the move?

Happy Thursday Everyone.
I promise the tacos will come eventually.
