Eeeeeeeek! 5 days!!!! Holy shit balls, this is really happening. 

Is it weird that I haven’t received a final quote from my caterer? She was supposed to send it Friday but I think I’ve reached apathy mode and if she fucks up my wedding I will just give her stink eye all day (she’s also my DOC). The last email I got from my DJ, after I sent playlists for the ceremony & reception, was: great, looks like we have enough data to have a wedding :). Should I tell her how unprofessional it is to send emails with no punctuation and emoticons? That’s the last I’ve heard from her. No, see you on the 17th, nothing. I hope she shows up. 

Oh wait, you didn’t ask me to vent. Sorry. 

I ran a lot of last minute errands this weekend, but I still don’t feel ready. I went to assemble my Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts yesterday and realized one of the jewelery sets was messed up (I ordered them online in August), so I had to buy them new gifts. I think they will like and appreciate the new gifts more though.

Our families get into town tomorrow. Fiance was gone all weekend hunting and even though he took down an elk on Saturday, his buddies kept him out all night last night for his “bachelor party”. It wasn’t a planned thing and it drove me crazy. I hadn’t really seen or talked to him since Thursday and he was out at the bar. Shit, I’m venting again.

I haven’t slept well in about a week. I keep having wedding dreams and tossing & turning. I get up between 4:45 & 5:00 because I just don’t feel like lying in bed anymore. 

I still need to take FI’s pants and shirt to the dry cleaners. I totally dropped the ball on that one. And my mom asked yesterday if the seamstress could fix her dress when she gets here on Tuesday. I don’t think she realizes how the whole seamstress thing works. She’s had the dress for months, I’m not sure why she didn’t take it in before now. 

Speaking of the seamstress… my MOH’s sister custom made her dress and when it came in from London it was way too long. So we took it to my seamstress last Friday and it needs $95 worth of alterations. Her sister just graduated college where she studied fashion, so I get it, she’s new at the whole dress making thing, but the whole thing needs to be taken apart! The zipper is completely crooked and the hemline on the bottom looks like shit. My Maid/Matron of Honor paid her sister $200 to make her dress and now with the alterations she’s up to almost $300. We should she have had her buy a dress. The seamstress seems confident she will have everything done by Friday, she’s also steaming my dress, my crinoline, and one of BMs dresses. I know that’s cutting it close, but like I said, I’m in apathy mode.

Wow, that’s was long. Also, I still have to work Tuesday through Thursday. I’m going to be a worthless teacher. And I have a shit ton of lesson plans to catch up on. Maybe I will do that today. Maybe.

I’M SO EXCITED!!!

Not too much left to do here that I can do before Thursday/Friday.  I am working all week until Thursday, when I’m taking a half day.

We spent all weekend cleaning the house and organizing, still have to clean the shower, put away laundry and clean out my car.  Also waiting on a final BEO from my venue coordinator.

Other than that, Thursday I am working a half day… then my parents, sister and nephew arrive.  Friday, getting an airbrush tan, picking up the flowers and hauling everything to the hotel.  In the afternoon, spending time with my BMs, happy hour, rehearsal and dinner!  Bright and early at 7am on Saturday, hair and makeup will be get started, and about 6 hours later, we’ll be married.  WOOHOO!

Good luck to everyone… it feels so weird to say I’m getting married this weekend.  Like, no biggie, just getting hitched!  Ahhhh!

Woah. I was totally freaking out this morning! I think I had too much coffee. I feel so much more calm now. I also feel like I got a good amount accomplished today, so maybe that has something to do with it. Bridal party & parent gifts are ready, I talked with my caterer/DOC to give her the final count (even though I emailed it to her last week, she claims she never got it), cleaned my house a little, and took care of some school work. Yes, I definitely feel better. But I’m totally going to freak out in the morning when my calendar says FOUR DAYS!!!! Thanks for letting me vent ladies. Good luck with everything, I hope you all have wonderful wedding days!

Is it bad that I haven’t done ANYTHING in the past week?! My Fiance is the one who’s been making sure things are ready. I kind of just “gave up” because I’m so exhausted. Finding out that I am pregnant was probably no help at all. We’re stoked about the bebe, but geez, that, wedding planning, craziness at work = not wanting to do a damn thing. Can I just show up at the wedding?!

I still have to do programs. I haven’t touched those. Just bought the paper today actually. I’m off Friday, but I have family coming into town that day and I have to go get all pampered (I haven’t even felt like doing my nails!), so I know that’ll take the majority of the day. Whew.

@jmr, I will join you in being a worthless teacher. My coteacher was so kind to let me use her lesson plans this week because she saw how stressed I am about things. Sad. Really sad, considering we have tests all this week, so all I had to do was write out the objective and agenda. Geez, that makes me sound lazy, doesn’t it! lol.

I might find more last minute things to do on Friday night, or wee early Saturday morning. Hmm.

We leave to Las Vegas tonight so today I went and got a mani/pedi, dropped my cat off at the Pet Hotel, am finishing up packing, and just spoke to our officiant about what kind of ceremony we want! Eeek! Laughing Oh and I got my eyelash extensions yesterday.

@Mstomrs29:  By some kind of miracle I actually managed NOT to be a worthless teacher yesterday. I was feeling pretty manic and just threw myself into my lessons. It was kind of surreal and it made the day go by pretty quickly. BUT… now I’m exhausted, so I’m pretty sure today is going to be totally Worthless Teacher Day.

@LizLemon:  Me too! And I woke up at 4:00 and just tossed and turned until 6:30. Now I’m sitting in the dark drinking coffee while Fiance sleeps next to me. Congratulations to all my date twins! Today is going to be amazing.
