@tksjewelry: How did you know exactly what I’m doing right now?! I’m in the midst of planning a Father’s Day carnival at our house! LOL! Here’s our invites (they were inside these awesome carnival cards I found at Michael’s in the bargain bin) and tomorrow I’m working on making bunting pendants 🙂

The outside of the cards:

@tksjewelry: We may or may not be renting cotton candy and popcorn machines… We got a Groupon for the bouncy castle and decided to go hog wild 🙂

I love this advice, I totally came to this conclusion on my own recently. I’ve been having a really hard time with post-wedding blues: missing the planning, missing picking out a formal gown, continuing to have all sorts of ideas – anywhere from small tweaks that would have made things run more smoothly (I had an extremely stressful wedding day) to wishing I had used a different venue, etc. Both the fact that I am a designer and that I have GAD add to these incessant fantasies and thoughts.

Finally I made two decisions that have calmed me and I think will finally settle my frustration and anxiety – First, a “Rock the Dress” photo session where I can try out the different accessories and photos I wish I had, all while being relaxed and having fun with my husband, rather than being stressed and pressed for time. 

The second is – as suggested above – an annual Halloween shindig!! This will totally satisfy my craving for a crazy party with my favorite people, and the dressing up aspect. Add in the fact that Halloween is my favorite holiday – I have always loved dressing up for it and scary stuff – AND that our anniversary is October 5, so it will also be within our wedding month – annual big anniversary celebration!

I’m very happy to take this therapeutic route to getting through my post-wedding anxiety and frustration, which for myself (and I’m sure others) goes beyond feeling bored in the evening without a project. I would really love to stop obsessing and move on to being happy with just being married and being done planning a wedding… and I would love to do this without having to see a therapist to discuss “poor me my wedding’s over” blues… lol.

DH and I are taking pics again in our wedding attire due to a photographer that sucked MAJOR. She didnt get most of our must have’s like a full photo of me in my dress, NO pics of me and my mom or NO pics of DH and our 3 children together and alot more. So we are going to take pics ourselves.
