Yes, today is the last day of July, and thus the last day of my sanity. The ole’ acid reflux kicked it up a notch last night and continues to be in full swing today. Is it too late to get on anti-anxiety pills? If you know a good black market dealer – fill me in.
In news fully related to aforementioned anxiety, I took the day off from work yesterday to run a plethora of wedding related errands, and to get the trusty CR-V’s oil changed (you know, for our Honeymoon drive to northern Minnesota?). I feel like I got a lot done, but don’t really have much to show for it. Oh well. This week I’ll be wrapping up a lot of things. My plan is to have nothing to do next week but worry about myself and getting vendors paid. Oh, and get married. Holy crap. We’re getting married next week! I think my reflux just flared upon thinking those thoughts. Deep breaths. Anyone have any relaxation tips? (Aside from eloping.)
Yes, the wedding is FAST FAST FAST approaching. I almost can’t handle it. Although I know I’ll get everything done, I’m starting to panic just a teensy bit. Eating and sleeping aren’t something I do well these days, and the lists in my head are on full rotation. Things I’ve accomplished on my to do list in the past few days:
Go to Michaels and buy things
Design Table Numbers
Test Place Cards
Make 400 more lists of things to do/questions to ask
Speaking of place cards, I’m going to have a hard time filling them out with your name and food choice if you all don’t MAIL IN YOUR RSVPS! I’m going to stop being nice in about 4 days.
And THANK YOU to everyone who came to my third and final shower last Thursday at Anita’s house. It was a fabulous party and thank you for all the lovely gifts! For the record, just because I couldn’t unscramble the words “husband” and “forever” doesn’t mean anything.
So many things I want to say in this post…
First, I’ll start by saying THANK YOU to everyone who came to my shower/bachelorette festivities this past weekend in ‘sconnie. And thank you to everyone who planned it, especially the greatest maid of honor, Amanda! It was so much – almost overwhelming! I nearly cried. The general public probably won’t get to see pictures from later in the evening, but I may post one from the shower. Maybe.
Second, we’re officially in the final stretch now. Only 25 days to go! And I’m officially labeling myself “Bridezilla” – although I don’t plan on earning a place on the popular WE network show.
HOWEVER, if you haven’t mailed back your RSVP for the wedding yet, please do so! We’d love to have you come (and then let us know what you want to eat!), and if you can’t make it, we’d like to know as well! (You know who you are if you haven’t replied yet-cheeky monkeys!) But don’t worry, I’m not going to hunt you down (yet), you still have until next Saturday to get your reply in.
All wedding-related threats aside, things are still going smoothly, although my “to-do” list is threatening to cause nightmares, lack of sleep, or even death. (Side effects similar to most prescription meds.) So, I’m trying to tackle everything I can as quickly as possible so I’m not teetering on the edge of insanity the week before the wedding.
This week: Meeting with the florist, final last minute alterations, wedding shower with the Roseners and final fitting/hair trial!
The fiance and I went to the police concert Tuesday night in St. Paul. We had tickets (of the $50 variety) which placed us in the highest seat in the house, about 3 sections back from the stage. Not bad, but not sweet either. So, we get to our seats, and lo and behold…his seat is broken. eventually a repair guy comes by and fixes it for him. Shortly after the repair guy leaves, MY chair breaks. I go and complain to the usher AGAIN…and he gives us seats behind the stage, about 20 rows back! It was so awesome. Granted, we were staring at their backs the whole time, but we were so much closer, and it sounded so much better. An AWESOME show, regardless of what the idiots at the Star Tribune had to say. Here’s a good idea of where we were sitting.
So, Saturday we’re heading to Bayfield, WI for a 7.7.07 wedding. Weather looks phenomenal, so it should be a great time.
I just have to say THANK YOU to all my family members who attended and planned the shower I had on Saturday. It was so nice, I had to take a step back after an hour or so to realize it was all happening for me! Sometimes, I feel like I’m just another person attending the party, and then I have to remind myself that it’s for me! (Well, and the fiance too.) So yeah, thanks to everyone who was there.
Well, tomorrow night, the fiance and I are going to see The Police at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Pretty cool. Then, Wednesday we have the day off, and we’re planning a day at the beach…but we’re not sure which beach yet. I’ll have a chance to wear my new swimsuit I got on sale at Macy’s.
