{FOUR weeks}

... that's right!
I can finally start counting my weeks. Wow!
30 days until these two catapillars fly away together as butterflies!

How I feel? -
 Exhausted. I can not sleep at night. It's awful & really starting to
take a toll on me. No sleep = break outs & grumpiness. Yes my face has been acting crazy. I've been doing LOTS of different things to help it out & ordered {The Wonderbar} since I heard it was fantastic. When I sit & actually think... our time is basically here I get the worst case of crazy butterflies. There are two types of "getting butterflies". The kind that makes you weak in the knees & the kind that
make you feel sick & make your blood pressure shoot high.
Yeah, well unfortunately I've got the second case. Therefore, I try not to just think about
... {the ceremony}.

Good News -
 The weather is looking BEAUTIFUL for September 3rd. Yay! It's still very early to really tell, so let's pray it continues to be a beautiful day!

Yes, Everything has gone SO smooth. Seriously, from the very moment we got engaged.
Nothing has gone terribly wrong. Most of the time, I hear "Oh, I would never plan a another wedding again... It's so stressful." So I've been waiting for the horrible action to take place and truly it has not. It's been really wonderful. I couldn't ask for a better experience. However, we will have ONE month. Most of the big stuff is d.o.n.e!
But... the tuxedos. We have 15 men getting tuxes .... I just have a bad feeling that this is where I'm going to run into my issue {aka STRESS}. Only 6 have completely paid & 2 still haven't gotten fitted. I'm panicking...

All he can say is...
When are going for our marriage license?
J, we gotta get our marriage license.
You gonna call about our marriage license?
... the answer - tomorrow.
Other than that... he's good. Just ready for me to be back to
the girl who cleaned, cooked, and chillaxed! :)

My TODO List-
is still long. It's mainly wrapping things up. I'm ready for it to be DONE.
Two of my maids were able to help wrap a lot up with me this past weekend.
It was greatly appreciated. :) Also, I could be NO WHERE without my mother.
Gosh, my list is long... but she has her own list and it's pretty long also. She has been
amazing through this entire thing & I could NOT have done any of this without her.
She's the best!

What I'm looking forward to-
{my house to go back to normal. It's a disaster}
My Bachelorette Party!
 Mad Hatter Tea Party in Atlanta...

The Day before....
My parents bought Aaron & I a lovers package at a Spa located in the town
we are getting married in. I'm SUPER excited about this. It gives us time to relax and enjoy the morning together before everything gets crazy.

Rehearsal -
This is a day I will be with my closest friends. I'm ready for the dinner that night & also my ladies will be joining me to stay my LAST night at my parents house as a single woman. I'm excited.

The Wedding Day... Duh!
... and certainly, I am  {WE ARE} very much looking forward to our honeymoon!
This can not come fast enough!

For the most part I LOVED wedding planning. We had some stressful moments not knowing if my husband would be able to take leave, etc. but I would plan another wedding (to my husband of course) again! I thought it was so fun. The only thing I hated was how much stuff we had to do before our big day when we came home from CA.

My little cousins tux was too small, but at the end of the day that didn't matter. It didn't affect our wedding day and I still thought it was perfect.

It'll be here before you know it, so happy you're enjoying this time!

Stephanie said...

ahhh getting close, girl!! SOOOO exciting!

I LOVED planning my wedding too but I think it's normal to feel a little nervous. You've waited your entire life for that moment and it's coming up SO quickly..of course you're going to be a little nervous!! Just the thought of me walking down the aisle made me cry! You'll be surprised though how calm you'll be the day's almost weird!!

As for the was hands down thee best part of the wedding!! My new goal in life is to be a professional honeymooner lol.

Jessica and Stephan said...

Wow, is coming up fast! I'll pray for some good weather for you!

This made me tear up! You don't know how much I miss this planning and this time... even though it was stressful it was just over entirely too quick! I can't stress enough how excited I am for you... regardless at the end of your wedding day (no matter what may go wrong) your marrying your dream come true!!!

Marian said...

Lindsi said...

Relax. Just breathe :)

Your big day will be here before you know it, and I'm sure everything will come together perfectly! Our wedding day FLEW BY.

Marriage is my FAVORITE THING in this whole world, so I know you will LOVE it!
