Almost there...

There are still a few loose ends to take care of, but for the most part we are almost there. Last week I was a wreck, this week I am excited. I don't even know why I am at work because I am useless right now.

Freak Out!

One week away and I am starting to freak out now. I still have a bunch of things to do and there just doesnt seem to be enough time. I am currently behind at work and was hoping to catch up on some stuff before I take a few days off, but that didn't happen. I will try to stay late at work today.

A word of advice, do all of your DIY things early. Well I couldn't have done this one early, but I just decided to scratch out my escort cards. I really wanted them, but I decided at this point they are too much work and I would also have to rent another table cloth for the table and work on the decoration for the table. I don't want it that bad anymore.

I still have to make our programs, put together favor boxes, verify times with my vendors, decorate the house for the tea ceremony, finalize all timelines, make sure everyone knows what we need them to do, so escort cards are last on my mind.

One week...then I can go back to my normal self.

Its really happening.

It really hit me on Sunday when I took K's cousins to church. We went through mass, prayed, and when mass ended said goodbye to Father Vincent (family friend and conducting our wedding ceremony). He asked if I was ready for the big day and of course I said yes, I couldn't wait for it to be here. We always grab one of the weekly newsletters to see what is going on in the next few weeks in our church community.

Just as I was skimming over the topics walking out the church, I saw it. K and I's names in bold. Congratulating us for our upcoming marriage. All of the planning, tears, anger fits for this one day that is 10 days away. It is really happening.

HelloOOooO Lover

I spotted these this morning. If only I had a thousand dollars laying around in the corner...

Just me, but I can't justify spending that much on shoes. However, I could justify it on a purse. I guess because I would use the purse on a daily basis, but these shoes? I definitely can't wear them to the office every day. After the wedding, I am planning on buying myself a purse.

Party Outfit

I bought this dress so many months ago and never had the perfect ocassion to wear it to. I have lost a significant about of weight because of the wedding stress, so it was loose on me. It was nothing a big belt couldn't fix. This was our first night out on the town in San Juan Puerto Rico! Please excuse the bachelorette accessories.

Dress: See by Chloe
Belt: Forever 21

A little reminder.

With all the wedding planning madness we get sucked into, we forget that at the end of the day, it is the marriage that matters the most. I will admit that with only 25 days left, I have cried, pouted, and even screamed with frustration. However, a simple text message from K can change the day.

"Past couple of months I've been waiting to start my life with you."

...As I have with you.
