17 days?!

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
Hair Trial
Final Fitting
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. :)

A million things…

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!

A great weekend

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. :)

Rings, check!

As of last night, the fiance and I officially have our wedding bands. Actually, we bought his a week ago and had it sent out to be sized. When we went to pick it up last night, we learned he must have been a little puffy when he was sized, cause the ring didn’t fit at all! So, we purchased my ring and sent it and his in again to be sized. Yay! Most big items have been taken care of, and we could still get married if I didn’t finish anything else on my to do list, so that’s a good feeling. (Of course, I’ll be getting everything done, regardless if it’s necessary or not!)

Category I am awesome, wedding whatnots

Yes, it’s finally happened! The braces are off! See the horrible picture below of me at work via cell phone camera. Yes, I know there’s a lack of makeup and also some frizziness of the hair, but deal with it. :)

The weekend went well. Camping was fun – and this weekend, I’ll be going to Chicago for a shower being thrown by my aunts! That will be fun. Two plane trips in the same month!
