I have to finish some sewing (table runners/cloths) and then get everything packed for the trip back to my hometown this weekend. Oh, and I have to put a bustle in my gown, that will be a pita. Then just print off and fold the programs, and stamp the favor bags and relax. 🙂

I have butterflies in my stomach. I’ve got mostly everything done, but I still have a lot of stuff around the house to take care of (since we’re hosting the Rehearsal Dinner there!).

I just can’t sleep. I feel and look like a zombie this morning. Really hoping that I can relax at some point in the next 9 days!

I need to purchase the parent gifts (restaurant gift cards), buy the potted plants for the centerpieces, get FH some new glasses (he has transitions lenses and I don’t want that to mess with the photos), finish the wedding party gifts (well, mine are done, FH has to finish his ). And . . . that’s it?

I just requested Tuesday off from work as well (my leave was supposed to start on Wednesday). I’m freaked out that there isn’t enough time!!

I am getting pretty darn excited! The last couple of days I’ve felt overwhelmed … but this morning, when I realized in 9 days I’m marrying my Fiance, I got a little excited.
We finalized the catering stuff last night.
Still have to finalize seating chart and do escort cards
Write out the thank you cards for Wedding Party (FI needs to buy the ones for his parents and his GM).
Hope that my ringbearer and flower girl can make it to the rehearsal (they’ll need to leave school early, but I couldn’t push it back any).
Do the kids bags and pick up some last minute odds and ends.
Get sand for sand ceremony (but I think we are going to end up using coloured bath salts because I can’t find coloured sand and I refused to pay $40 for coloured sand).
DIY table numbers
Next week I have a dentist and spray on “tan” (really it is body paint) appointment and I need to get my eyebrows waxed 24hrs before the tan appointment.
I think thats it?

My bachelorette party is on Saturday and then on Sunday I’m picking up the jars for my candy buffet (a gal I met online is giving me her jars!) and figuring out what candy will go in what jar – fun times!
EIGHT days!! Whoa!
