Of a Rude Awakening & Latteria Mozzarella Bar

*edited*

This wedding business, ironically, really is an apt occasion to weed out "friends" versus genuine folks who actually care two hoots about us. I am amazed at how defensive some people can get when we simply went back to them to ask about the RSVP status after sending out our "save the date" card.

"But I don't know my schedule then what!"be imply tells me you are not interested. So why not answer with a "no" and accompany that with a cordial excuse? I can accept that just fine.

In any case, it would take such an episode to have me come to my senses. I decided this bunch of "friends" aren't worth my time and effort any longer. Am I too harsh? RSVP etiquette is not that hard to grasp - reply with yes, no or maybe.

The only comforting thing that day was the dinner. Simple, delicious food at Latteria Mozzarella Bar. It kept me distracted. Nicked a couple of bites of the cheeses (about $20 each) and I ordered a grilled sea bass ($35) for my main. It was my first time here and I find the food much focusing on the main ingredients, and garnishes / sauces are kept minimal. I appreciate this type of cooking philosophy. The fish was huge, fresh and grilled perfectly. Could be shared for two ladies as a main. Service was a little bit of a hit-and-miss/ Bread was not served to all (some of us came late) but water topped up regularly and plates cleared timely.

That's totally rude! Everyone knows you need to RSVP to weddings! Life is too short for rude people :)

But that mozzarella totally looks worth it!

I completely get you. You start to see clearer in situations like that. Never too late to find out. *hugs* and hope the planning is all going well! :)

Couldn't agree more about weeding out "friends", especially those who come up with lame excuses even after they have committed to the date

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
