This is the website

This is what the login http://wayfaroutadventures.com/blog/wp-admin/&reauth=1">looks like now

Basically here's what happened:

I had www.mysite.com/blog as the permalink instead of www.mysite.com, and /blog wouldn't go away. So then I changed it so it was .com without blog and it not won't let me login or anything, gives me a 404. I'm scared because I think I seriously screwed up and I don't know how to fix it! How do I get it so I can login again. I don't even care if its /blog anymore. I just want my site back.

You can still get to your login page: http://wayfaroutadventures.com/blog/wp-login.php You probably haven't done any serious damage.

Login to your site over FTP or using some file manager provided by your host and add:

define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com/wordpress');
define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/path/to/wordpress');

See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#WordPress_address_.28URL.29

Of course, the addresses need to match exactly what you had before you changed things. That should get you operating again.
