I’m excited! But I am also looking forward to the wedding being done and over with. I want to have a beautiful wedding… but mostly I just wish we were married already and that all the wedding planning would be over with.

@Woodstock:  I think 13 days is forever away. I have a busy week this week and back to work for two days the next week too. Then it is crunch time.

You will get there!

@Adalita:  I think I’d feel calmer if people would stop asking me the same questions over and over.  Is anyone else getting that or just me?  LOL It’s making me nuts.  Also hearing “everything will be fine just relax” irks the heck out of me.  I’ll relax once everything is in order until then I doubt that’ll happen.  *eye twitch*

I’ll probably be better when my maid of honor gets into town.  She’ll force me to relax LOL

I know, or the “so are you excited?”

“Are you looking forward to your big day!”

I feel like answering no and seeing their reaction!

@RagDoll:  LOL yeah.  And, “have you checked the weather?” & of course “what do I wear?” and “when do we need to be there?”

Trying not to think about weather LOL, don’t care what people wear as long as it’s tasteful and not white/ivory/variation of either, and refer to your invite people…this shindig starts at 11am.  You should be here before that cuz that’s when it’s set to go.  Sheesh
