...Well silly me. I seem to have developed a bad habit.
For years, I've wanted a KitchenAid Mixer. I've seen them on the cooking shows and food blogs. People praise them and it's pretty much developed a cult following. Well while searching on Amazon for the one we want, I got caught up reading all the negative reviews. Before I knew it, scared myself into not wanting one anymore. But it didn't stop there either. I wasn't registering for towels/measure cups or shower curtains either because I would trip my self up over a handful of negative views. I suppose my thought processing was "Well if these 100 people all complained about it, it must be a serious problem! What if it happens to us?"
Eventually I expressed my concern to Jeremy and he reassured me that in all likely hood, the negative reviews are coming from a small group of people who bought the items and had problems. That most people who bought it probably didn't come back to write a review.
And while I'll admit it got me mostly over my habit of taking these reviews too seriously, I can't help but have that lingering thought in the back of my mind that I'll be getting a defective product. I just tend to be an unlucky person and I suppose having a broken mixer would just make me one sad panda.

Crazyness aside, this weekend will be the chock full of more of wedding planning!
Jer and I have a meeting with a wedding planner. We're only using her for the rehearsal and ceremony, but hiring her comes with a few hours of consultation and we thought it best to use it now while we're in the process of booking vendors. We're also getting the ring sized as it's a half-size too big. And oh yeah, I'm going dress shopping with my mom and a friend.
Hopefully once all the stressful planning is out of the way, I can take the time to start planning the fun stuff - such as cakes, flowers, invitations, and other wedding goodies. I've also got a few book and comic reviews coming up, so stay tuned!
<3 Have a great weekend!
