    [–] Spicy keto tortilla beef lasagne stefanielaine 2 points ago in ketorecipes

    This looks amaaaaazing. Any chance you could be more specific about the size of salsa jars you used? There are a ton of different sized jars. Thank you!

    [–] A little PSA, don't put "Mr. and Mrs. Lastname" on wedding gift check stefanielaine 2 points ago in weddingplanning

    There definitely is a lot of variability here amongst banks! Without thinking, I submitted all of our wedding checks, which had 4 or 5 different combinations of our names (including my first name with his last name, and I did not take his name), through the Chase mobile check deposit app and Chase accepted them all with no problem.

    [–] I was nervous about my makeup trial since I don’t wear a lot of makeup. CC welcome! stefanielaine 4 points ago in weddingplanning

    Agree that the coloring is overall lovely on you, but the foundation color might be a bit dark on you - ideally your foundation should match your neck so you don’t have to worry about having an obvious line between the two.

    [–] Rescue 911 TV show... the source of most of my fears growing up, but still loved this show! stefanielaine 6 points ago in nostalgia

    There was an episode where a little kid pulls a big sharp knife out of a drawer and his brother runs around the corner and gets stabbed with it, and I’ve thought about that scene every time I’ve taken a knife out of a drawer for the past 30 years.

    I mean, if you want to believe this is a well-intentioned mistake, I guess you’re welcome to.

    The issue is that the wrap is only 2/3 the size of the packaging. If they weren’t trying to deceive the customer, they would have used packaging that’s the same size as the product.

    [–] What’s something you’ve done that deserved credit but no one gave it to you? stefanielaine 1 points ago in AskReddit

    When I was a pharmacy technician, I was chatting with a patient’s mom as she handed me her daughter’s prescription for a topical cream. She happened to mention her daughter’s severe peanut allergy, and I happened to have just seen the packaging for that cream and realized that it was compounded in peanut oil. The mom called the doc and got a different prescription and nobody ever mentioned that I literally saved that little girl’s life.

    [–] What non-wedding dresses can I wear for my wedding? stefanielaine 5 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    I wore a navy floral ballgown to my wedding last weekend. It was perfect. It was still formal/bridal looking, but more interesting than other dresses I saw and very reasonably priced (less than $300).

    Thank you!!! That dapper kiddo is my nephew. We had a plan for my husband (!) and I to fist-bump him as we walked in, but then we handed him that box of popcorn and refused to stop eating it so we both ended up with smashed popcorn on our hands after we fist bumped him lol

    Thank you, fellow movie-themed bride! Happy to share any details if you’re looking for ideas!

    Sure! It's a reference to the Lindy West article that I linked at the top of the post.

    [–] And I Was Fat As Hell The Whole Time: June 9, 2018 Wedding Recap stefanielaine 2 points ago in weddingplanning

    We started out with 120 cans of Fat Tire varieties, 120 cans of San Tan varieties, 24 bottles of Angry Orchard Cider, and 24 bottles of Ciderboys cider (in addition to a ton of vodka, bourbon, rum, and wine, plus a signature cocktail). The beer and cider was all gone by dinner. I'm actually not sure how many replacement beers my bridesmaid's boyfriend bought (they refused to tell us because they don't want us to try to pay them back) but I'm sure it was a heck of a lot.

    Not sure what vendors you already have locked down but feel free to DM if you want to talk PHX vendors! We LOVED our photographer and caterer and hated our bartender. :)

    Thank you!!

    We hadn't planned on attending the cocktail hour, but because it was 108 degrees out (thanks, Phoenix!), we had to do all of our photos inside, so we had to run around in partial view of the guests while we were doing that. It wasn't what we had envisioned, but I don't think the guests having already seen us made it made our ceremony entrances any less magical. :)

    We had a few meetings with her - we sent all of our vendor contracts to her before the wedding, and she worked with us to establish a timeline for the day. We haven't contacted her since the wedding. We're giving ourselves a few weeks to cool down before we start composing vendor reviews.

    Thank you!! Lindy has set me straight soooo many times. I'm designing an "and I was fat as hell the whole time" tattoo as we speak!

    [–] And I Was Fat As Hell The Whole Time: June 9, 2018 Wedding Recap stefanielaine 6 points ago in weddingplanning

    Thank you!! The "standard" ways of honoring loved ones (particularly the empty chair) just seemed SO profoundly sad to us. This was a way to celebrate the awesome person that she was instead of just her absence.
