On Hey, Wait, I've Got a New Complaint

I sent something back at a restaurant this weekend, for the first time ever! It was very nerve-wracking, but worth it, because nothing on the menu indicated that this beer was BLUEBERRY FLAVORED. yuck.

On Planning a 2015 Budget: Revised and Updated

I think the thing with renter's insurance is that it pays out the replacement value, not the actual value, so your MacBook would only be the cost of the deductible rather than the full cost if it got stolen (etc).

On The Costs of Mental Illness, With & Without Insurance

I don't have a psychiatrist but I definitely picked my ACA plan because it was the only one my therapist took. Coverage has yet to kick in due to a technicality but I'm super nervous that I've made a huge mistake.

FYI Nicole RENT IS FUCKING THROUGH THE ROOF. I'm sorry in advance for the apartment hunting, since I just did that and it was horrible and expensive.

@JNC Musings Factory Do people really remember the food though? I don't remember what I ate at the most recent wedding I went to, which was like two months ago. Much less the ones from years ago.

On 5 Ways the Wedding Industry Is Plotting to Destroy Us

@pinches To be fair ours is $17/head and we live in a pretty large city, so do not despair that everything is so expensive. It's going to be more work, but well worth it to not have the sticker shock.

On 5 Ways the Wedding Industry Is Plotting to Destroy Us

FOR THOSE FOLLOWING MY WEDDING DRESS SAGA (the other post comments are closed): I decided the dress I liked was too expensive for one day, and found another for less than half the price. Sure it's made in China instead of right here in my city... but that is something I will have to live with I guess!
