I've been wanting to sit down and write about everything but haven't had time yet.
I did however manage to finish uploading all the photos that my friends and I took on flickr:

Yesterday's wedding shower was fun. I'm so glad all my girls came out to keep me company.
I'm not used to being the center of attention at a party like that. When they clinked glasses for Chris and I to smooch I turned beet red from embarrassment. I'll have to get over that before the wedding in June. Chris' family is so generous. I can't get over it. We've got enough kitchen, bathroom and bedroom stuff to set us up really comfortably in our new house, whenever that will be. Hopefully soon.

Well, off to work I go. Here's hoping for a breezy work week.

 How do you all feel about silver wedding shoes? The red John Fluevog ones are no longer available and ran about three times as much as I wanted to pay. I would totally wear these ones again. And again.

These are okay too, (I'm a sucker for the mary jane style strap) but will be white with a champagne colored dress. Not sure about that. 

There's about a million ones like this out there too. (boooooring...)

I'm totally open for suggestions. I'm looking for something off white, red or sapphire blue in victorian or vintage style if at all possible. :)


EDIT: Unanimous vote! Silver shoes win! Zappos will take the return if they're not right, so I ordered them. I picked the silver 'Cabaret' ones instead of the Footlight pair I had linked earlier. Lower heel and 20 bucks cheaper. Plus, they're called freakin CABARET for crying out loud. :)

Time is passing so quickly these days.
I'm almost glad I didn't post much last month. It was a couple weeks of a pretty bad funk and being really uncomfortable in my skin. The last bit of the month was me feeling much better emotionally but got a nasty chest/head cold that drained me of my energy. I think it's mostly gone now. I can get by with a couple Sudafeds a day. That's pretty good.
My birthday was ok. I was still feeling sorry for myself and had moments of almost crying but I made it through. The highlight was seeing Tilly and the Wall the night before. I sang along and danced like an idiot. Their music makes it impossible to be sad. You just can't help it.
Easter was quiet and nice. I got to play Trixie for the first time at Rocky that weekend with Sarah, which was SO much fun. 
Really, the secret to a happy Melissa is to let her dress up in pretty wigs and outfits and let her go onstage. 

As for now, I've got a lot to be happy about. Chris and I just celebrated our 3 year anniversary and are counting down less than 2 months to our wedding. LOTS to do but all is going well so far. The invitations were printed by a small screenprint place here in Chicago and were designed by Chris' graphic designer friend and they are glorious. They should be going out hopefully by Friday. I'm relieved to be done chasing everyone down for their addresses. My mom has a calligraphers hand so she's doing the envelopes for us. Everyone is pitching in a lot, which is great. I had no idea how many piddly little tiny details are involved in a wedding. It'll make it all the more special so it's worth it. Let's see, bridal shower is a week from Sunday? It's super fun watching our online registries getting filled in. Presents!

I'm also really looking forward to seeing Sweeney Todd this month and Avenue Q next month. I spent a good hour watching behind the scenes stuff on the Tim Burton DVD. It's only making me more hyped.

Well, I'm off to work. Hi ho.

 Can I get married in these, or would that be silly? oh poo, they're 4 inch heels. I need 2. 

I really want red shoes. 

Or maybe goldenrod. How cool would that be? 

It's probably better that I don't choose these shoes, just look at those pricetags!
