Ummmm. Yea. You read that right. Exactly one month until Jake and I get married.
Insane, right? In a good way!
I feel the pressure to get everything done now and have been contemplating and starting DIY projects this week. A few I have decided that we don't need. Which is okay. I am just ready to be married!! After this, I will be happy to never look at another bridal magazine in my life :P
Did I mention that I have to work on my vows? Oh, and finish Jake's groom's gift. Seriously, Jake keeps teasing me that he's already got his vows written and I don't... I'm procrastinating because I want to go the traditional route and am having a hard time coming up with something that is heartfelt but won't make our guests gag. Okay, maybe not gag, but I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable with our mushiness. I mean, after 8-years of being together, I think everyone knows how we feel about each other.
Was that really complaining? Kind of, I guess. But I'm done. I'm sure that they will turn out beautifully when I sit down and do it. And I'm sure that Jake's will be too... it's just a major part of the whole wedding day that is making me insanely nervous and anxious because it's gotta be my creation and I have to say all of it in front of everyone. Traditional vows I could do. No problem. But, ahhhhhh. I am not a good public speaker. At all.
//really done with that subject.
I dropped my dress off for alterations today. Can you believe that we ordered my dress in a petite and I still have to get it hemmed a bit. Seriously, like 1/2 an inch. :-/ I don't even shop in the petite section in stores!! I am just going to say this about my dress: It is perfect. And beautiful. And I can't wait to wear it on the big day. Honestly, I was so sad when I had to take it off today. I am already dreading the fact that I have to take it off after the wedding and can't wear it for the rest of my life. Okay, that was a bit dramatic. Seriously though, I am absolutely in love with my dress. It fits perfectly and is going to look amazing when it is bustled and ahhhhhhhhhhh. Seriously, I can't wait to show you all!!
Anyway, I am still at work and should do something productive. Or at least look like I am being productive. Today should have been my last day here, but I haven't been given cases yet so I have decided to be flexible and stay for another week or so and be flexible until the family finds a replacement. Hopefully that is soon... and hopefully I get cases next week so I can be full-time by the end of May :)
I am going to end this with a little piece of wisdom: There is a reason why we, as humans, are older when we have teenagers.
Goodnight everyone and have a great weekend. If you are a wedding guest and reading this, and you haven't RSVP-ed yet, please do so soon! I need all responses by April 17th and you can only make hotel reservations until April 15th for our special rate.
