Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap. The realization that the big day is almost here is setting in. I keep checking the little countdown of the remaining days on our knot.com site, and I get all giddy with excitement because it hits me that we’re in the home stretch now. As if I didn’t have a mental countdown going on in my head at all times!
Our days have been filled with tallying up RSVP numbers and working on finalizing our total headcount. I’ve been crocheting the last of the wedding yarn projects. I’ve been tying lots of ribbons. (What’s the deal with that anyway? What is it about weddings that dictates the presence of a bajillion ribbons?) I’ve been making what I swear is my last stop to Michael’s and Joann craft stores every week or so. I might be going again today. I’m pretty sure this time will be the last time. (Pssh, who am I kidding?) I’ve been corresponding with my dear friend MJD about the wedding programs, which she’s lending her incredible talents to.
I’ve had so many different thoughts swirling around in my head at once – I didn’t think it was possible to think about so many things at one time! But let me assure you, it’s possible. At any given moment, I’m probably thinking something like this: What’s the cake going to taste like?/Are my heels going to be comfortable?/Will we have enough food variety for dinner?/Oh, crap, what am I going to wear to the rehearsal?/Have I tied all the ribbons?/What the heck did I decide my something blue would be?/Necklace and bracelet? Just necklace? Just bracelet?
Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
