21 more days to go. I'm sort of having heart attacks over here, in a good, excited way, but also in a totally overwhelmed and stressed and freaking out sort of way. I only have TWENTY-ONE more days to finalize the EVENT OF MY LIFE. There are still so many little things to get done. Last night was the first night that I actually really couldn't fall asleep because I was just lying there, THINKING about every teeny tiny little detail still to be done! It almost feels like I'm back in school again, putting off some major research paper or huge photo project. Those feelings of, "I still have so much to do, i'll do it tomorrow" are plaguing me just like they did in school. If I could just get everything done and then relax for the next twenty days, that would be a dream.

So you may be wondering just what, exactly, I am stressing over/ still have to do? Here is a brief list (in totally random order as thoughts pop into my over-excited brain):

1. Figure out some sort of table number decor.
2. Find a vest for Justin.
3. Find suspenders for all of the guys.
4. Make sure all of the guys have their pants, and a white shirt.
5. Figure out where the heck the custom ties we ordered are? Hopefully on their way asap.
6. Figure out what the do the last day of our honeymoon- i.e., purchase one more day of Disney park passes since we decided not to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
7. Find jewelry to wear. Which is dumb how stressful this is to me because I am a weird girl and never wear jewelry but I feel like you have to wear something special at your wedding. 
8. LOSE A FEW POUNDS just for good measure. Ugh.
9. Figure out a timeline for the day.
10. Once we get all of the RSVP cards back we have like a week to plan out the seating arrangements. So *nudge nudge* please send back your RSVP cards asap!
11. Figure out ceremony decor. 
etc. etc. etc.

Okay so you get the idea, the list goes on and on and on. Those are just a few things! I guess this is the first whiny post. All of the others have been all "blah blah blah I'M SO EXCITED YOU GUYS" but now this is me starting to lose my cool. But everything is going to be okay! Just have to keep in mind that all of the little things that don't get done won't matter in the long-run.

One More Month

One more month until I marry Justin.

Is this still real?! I cannot write (or type) just how excited that I am. It's totally surreal. I hope that on May 5th I can be brought down from Cloud 9. I don't want to float away!

I've been counting down for days but for some reason when I woke up this morning, the fact that today is the one month mark did not pop into my head. Yet, when I got up, I immediately turned on episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and went to the Watters website to look at my dress because I was feeling Wedding Fever. I haven't felt that for about a month now. I had stopped looking at wedding blogs, pinning things onto my pinterest boards, obsessing over things. It had calmed down for the past month. But it's back in full force! 

In an attempt to keep myself from just sitting here and babbling on and on about how excited I am, I will share some photos from our wedding shower, which happened on March 31st. My amazing future big sis/ matron-of-honor Becky and my amazing future mother-in-law Sharon put together the entire event and it was wonderful! A room filled with amazing amazing deserts and incredibly generous loved ones- a perfect night!

We asked people to bring their wedding photos to hang up. That's my parents on the left there, my dad was apparently turning around asking the photographer if he was doing it right.

I realized the next day that I never got a photo of just Justin and I taken. Oops! I guess on May 5th we will have all the photos in the world taken of just us to make up for it. 

Later today I have my next dress fitting. It was supposed to be last Sunday but I was too sleepy and feeling yucky the day after the wedding shower. Today I am fully recovered and ready to see my beautiful gown again (and try on my killer fancy shoes too). Happy one month to go!
