4 Nov

five days! FIVE. I’m so damn excited and so damn nervous. The last few days I’ve vacillated between both extremes. Last night Brian and I went out to an early dinner at our favorite little neighborhood spot the Corner Door and I spent the whole dinner with a huge smile on my face going on and on about how excited I was. Then this morning I woke up at 5:30 to go to a Bar Method class and spent the whole class running through everything that I am nervous about. It’s mostly just a list of things that could go wrong. Like what if I end up hating the colors scheme, what if I fall walking down the aisle, what if my something goes wrong with the cake, or the food or the music!? Blah. Blah. Blah. The emotionally evolved part of me knows that it won’t matter because I will be so damn happy and full of gratitude that nothing could change that. But the perfectionist in me is also rearing its ugly head! Le sigh.

Other than my emotional pendulum swinging back and forth and an incredible speed it was a rather quiet weekend around our house.

I packed my bag for the wedding weekend…


snuggled with Frank…


We planted 150 baby succulents for the wedding…If I never saw another baby succulent again I would be fine.


oh and I picked up my gown (which is now slightly big on me. I CAN”T WIN)!! We  also finalized the music, ceremony and the seating. Success. Now I get to spend the week counting down the days until I get to become Brian’s wife. I’m a very lucky gal.

    At the custom wedding gown atelier, that was always the case. Guaranteed the bride always lost a bunch more weight than expected 2 weeks before the wedding, and the gown was slightly big on her. Which is why a fitting the week of the wedding was always encouraged 😉
    You will be a gorgeous bride, and despite anything that may or may not go wrong, it won’t matter – because it will be the most beautiful day! This I promise ❤

    Yahoo! I remember about this time last year, I was realizing that the countdown for the wedding was 5 days, but the week of festivities and family was about to begin. SO MUCH FUN. Remember that even if you DO fall walking down the aisle, that will be perfect, too. Everything that happens will be part of your memories forever. It will all be amazing. xx
