As I shared on Facebook earlier this week, and as I've said to Matthew a couple of times already...we're getting married NEXT WEEK!! I know I've said it before, but the time seems to be FLYING by these days.
People have started asking me some um...interestingly obvious questions like "Wow, it's coming up fast; are you getting excited?" Um, no. I've been dreaming (okay, fantacising) about this day all my life, why would I be excited? Especially after I tried on my gown last week! OMG...Oh no, I'm not excited...not at all. Hee hee
And then there's "You're getting married next week - are you getting nervous?" Hmm...nervous - yes. About the wedding itself, not at all...about the details of the wedding, a little. However, if things go awry in any way, the most important thing about that day is that I will be marrying my best friend, and really, that's ALL that matters :)
The time has arrived - final payments are due! So let the Credit Card Juggling Act commence! It hasn't been all that bad, really. And it's actually kinda nice to have that "paid in full" feeling. Earning all those miles are awesome, but getting that credit card bill after the honeymoon...ugh. (And just so you know, I never carry a balance on my cards...it's all good...because God is good!)
Checks are a-flyin'!
And we've been checking stuff off the list left and right! Thank you Matthew!! xoxo The loose ends are getting all tied up so nicely :)
Good news: St Anthony helped me find my bridal shower gift list! I hope no one minds if they get sent out after the wedding :\ I'm a little busy right now, but I will try to get them out soon...(Who's that etiquette lady? Whoever she is, I apologize for getting my thank-you's out late!)
Deliveries and ArrivalsThe UPS guy and the mailman have been wearing paths from the sidewalk to the front door with all the deliveries I've had this week. It's kinda crazy, kinda fun...kinda like this big fancy party we're having in 9 days!
Family arrivals begin on Sunday with Matthew's best man. My Mom and a couple of our NE friends arrive on Tuesday, and then it's all downhill from there...or something like that. It will be nice to spend a little time with my Mom next week before all the craziness begins!
Okay, that's enough for today. If you're joining in on our festivities, please be sure to check out our wedding website for the latest details. I only have two more days of working as a single gal and then it's off to see the wizard...oh wait, no. I'm going to the chapel...and I'm gonna GET MARRIED! Yeah! That's it! The wizard will have to wait until after the honeymoon ;)
"Be still and know that I am God." Umm...Wait...be STILL?! Who can be still at a time like this?!?! Okay, let's try this again.
Here's an awesome quote from our awesome Pope Francis:
"Love shares everything it has and reveals itself in communication. There is no true faith that is not manifested in love." ー Pope Francis
