I’m angry at myself b/c I’ve been wanting to do better with my wedding ‘diet’ (mainly just eating better and hitting the gym).  But there is just so much to do its not happening, which just makes me angry at myself πŸ™

How can it be so close to our day already?!?!

I honestly feel like puking thinking about how close it is!!

I have super bad anxiety so it’s full force right now!

I feel like there is so much to do still.  Ugh!  Has anyone been forcing themselves to stay away from weather.com?  I’m so tempted to look but it’s still so far away that I don’t want to psych myself out even more.

Here’s the deal… about 2 weeks before the wedding your panic level will peak. One week before the wedding you will enter the “Eff it, if it isn’t already done, I am over caring about it” mode. In the few days leading up to the rehearsal, giddiness and excitement will set in. And on the morning of the big day, you will know to your core that, no matter what did or didn’t get done, no matter what hiccups will happen that day, it’s all going to turn out just fine. You will feel calm, relaxed, and go with the flow. nothuing will get you down, because today you get to marry your amazing love. And that is all that you will care about. The rest is just gravy on top.

Hang in there. You are so close. It’s gonna be beautiful and wonderful.

@HeatherShane: Thanks. I’ve got all the big things covered, it’s just lots of little stuff here at the end. I’m a compulsive planner, so not having these things done is just setting me off. Top that with full time classes that involve all sorts of hours outside of class and work picking back up and you have one super stressed me. So many small projects to finish up and things to gather. My Fiance is being really great about wrapping stuff up for me and really taking charge the last few weeks, but letting go of something I’ve been planning for a year right at the home stretch is just nerve wracking. I trust him (it’s his wedding too after all!) but I have a bit of a control-freak-streak and find that no one does things “fast enough” if that make sense.

Just a few minutes ago my Fiance was working on the seating chart and I was supposed to be doing homework but kept peeping over my laptop at him. He noticed me and got annoyed and stormed off (he hates to have people watch him do stuff just as much as I hate to give stuff away, so we’re awesome for each other) so I just broke the hell down and sobbed my eyes out. I’m just really stressed and every time someone at work or school mentions how excited I must be I seriously have to fight tears. I know the wedding will be magical (I am getting married to my best friend after all!)…but I’m not-so-patiently waiting for my eff it moment.

I’m freaking out.  I feel like there’s still SOOO much left to do.  I haven’t picked out my jewelry or what I’m wearing to get ready yet.  I still need nylons.  My DJ needs to get our contract right.  Seating charts and final headcounts haven’t been started.  I’ve got a DIY project to start to make the table numbers.  I need to order escort cards.  I still have 1 more dress fitting.  I need to breathe, lol. Oh geez, I still have to write my vows, and my letter for our love letter/wine box ceremony.  I’m spending the entire weekend at my Mom’s house, and we are hopefully just gonna bang all this out.  Everytime I make another to do list, I get dizzy.  I just want it all to be done, so I can chill.  The day of better be freakin magical!

@lovekiss: I’m already in the “eff it, if it isn’t already done” mode! lol

But it’s been a crazy few weeks for us here. Between final fittings, school, work, and rushing to get a few last minute things, we’ve had our hands full. My grandmother passed away last week, so it’s going to be difficult. We won’t be able to have a service until sometime closer to Thanksgiving, because she wants to be interred beside her daughter in Pittsburgh. But we all know my Gram was LIVING to see this day, and it would dishonor her if I didn’t go through with it. Other than that, I’ve still got a boatload of things to finish. I’m just taking my sweet ole time.

Not to mention we still have to pay the caterer! lol

@KateByDesign: Yep. I am on TWC on my phone everyday looking at the 10 day forecast. It’s up to the 25th as of today and it’s raining that day. It’s been mostly sunny here in FL ao far. The weather is really the biggest thing that is out of our control….I’m freaking out a bit.
