The funny thing is that I’m soooo happy that the Chicago Bears play on Monday night next week so that it gives me the entire weekend to power through some things.  There is still a giant list to tackle.  Oh and it’s one of the busiest times of the year at work.  Yes, the time will go by fast but I hope I’m in one piece at the end of this!!!

@MUI831: haha I am happy of the Bears playing Mon too…that means my FH can hopefully work on our house all day! We move in on Sat the 15th and still don’t have a liveable space! (ugh)

On the outside I am Ok but on the inside I am a nervous wreck… I have lots to do, and I can’t get past the whole ‘everyone is going to be looking at me, oh my god’. It’s making me SO self-conscious. I’ve been working out this whole time and have lost maybe 8 lbs and definitely toned up but I am still roughly 4-6 lbs from my ‘goal’ weight. I know deep down that the number doesn’t matter and I do feel better but I can’t help feeling disappointed/a little insecure about it.

This week I finished programs and escort cards, and have to finish putting together table numbers (just 8 more to go), finishing paperwork for the venue (who’s eating what/who’s sitting where — I have this all written down for me in a database but need to transfer to their forms), and god only knows what else. I did wrap up all my Bridesmaid or Best Man presents at least! I am having an Out of Town wedding so my mom is driving up the 4 hours to pick up some stuff and bring it back with her. Thank god for that.

*Start Rant* I am ready for this to all be over. I’m tired and frustrated. I have to do menus, figure out my DIY flower arrangements and bouquets, sew my sash, finish strassing my shoes (ran out of rhinestones yesterday), get my dress presses, figure out what the groom is going to wear since he decided what we got is not his vision. I have no toasting glasses or serving set, and need to figure out how to do my hair. I am wedding-pooped and really want the 22nd to come and go smoothly. Oh and my flower girl dress is still being made. *End Rant* Thanks for providing a forum for me to vent ladies!

To to do list is long. . . and I feel stressed and over worked. . . but I find the closer the wedding gets the less I care about things.

Complicated DIY centerpieces I started. . . took em back to hobby lobby.  The bridesmaids bouquets will look good enough in the vases I bought.

Couldnt find the “perfect” song for my bridesmaids and groomsmen to walk into. . . well that one version I kinda liked will work fine.

Lots of little things like that but I am starting to let go and realizing it will be a good day no matter what.

Still have a to do list a mile long =)

15 days!!!!!!!!!
