(3) Comments | Posted June 3, 2013 | 6:45 PM

I have to admit... As much as I preach about not being a bitch during your wedding planning, it's also important not to be a bitch during your marriage. And frankly, that was me this past weekend. I was a complete bitch to the only person who truly gets me,...

Quick! What do you think of when I say, "morning after"? I know what I think of, and it's something they probably don't want me write because it's dirty! Right? But seriously, I don't know WHAT the deal is lately. I feel like every time I turn around, somebody is...
