We ARE approaching, peoples. The date... August 13th....is COMING!!!! *excited*
And meanwhile, chaos and pandemonium ensue :-/ At least, it feels like it sometimes. I mean, it wasn't until yesterday that I actually got to see my bedroom floor - it had been covered by
dirty clothes essentials and just lots of...stuff. (Im packing ok? ) And then it occurred to me the other night in a sweaty panic that...it's 2 1/2 weeks til the wedding, and my dress isn't even finished yet. Um, yeah. (That made me just buckle down and finish altering it THAT night.)
I'm trying to keep my mind off the wedding (yeah right) so I can focus on just today. But I'm finding that increasingly difficult, since the arch we're getting MARRIED under sits right there in my bedroom every single day lol. Kinda no other place to store it.....I'm sooooo tempted to just leave the lights on at night (my favorite) but I'm forcing myself to leave them unplugged so I have something to work with for our wedding day. Isn't it a pretty arch? I still have to decorate it with flowers / tulle. *can't wait!*
Super excited about the next few weeks, music-wise. Get to play violin at church this Sunday (it's been forever) and then in two more weeks, I'm leading worship *gulp* at the Calvary Chapel Women's Retreat!!! Yeah, two days before the wedding!!! Eeek. Finally got all six worship sets set and ready to go. I'm really excited about this retreat; just getting the chance to hear really good teaching and worship with some very dear ladies from church will be a great way to get my heart right and ready for the wedding.
Things are starting to come together, for real. David and I got our apartment, and now we're starting to fill it up!! Last weekend, Dad helped us move a few pieces of furniture out there, plus all our shower gifts and a few of my clothes. I think David's a little worried about me hogging up the closet space with all my clothes/accessories. I reassured him that I'm sure we could find a.....small corner in back....or somethin....for his FEW items. ok, kidding.....but um yeah, I do have quite a bit more than he does lol. Come's with bein' a girl :-)
All the wedding planning that we've done over the past few months is finally starting to fall into place. Rings bought. Ties for the guys and dresses for the girls bought (turqouise, people!). Flower girl chosen (cutie!). Most decorations bought (but still needing to be put together). Reception menu planned (tacos hamburgers and hotdogs....mmm...). Cake being worked on. Dress
Phew! This whole thing has been quite a project. But I want to enjoy every last minute of it. :-) It's LITERALLY a once-in-a-lifetime event. I wanna savor every bit.
