I woke up yesterday morning with water droplets splashing on my forehead. The window next to the bed was wide open, and the rain pouring down had decided it was best time to come at the ground at an angle, making the drops ricochet off of the stone lip outside and into my unsuspecting bedroom. I raised my sleepy head and stared confusingly outside in the dark morning, just after 5. Annoyed, I closed the window and went back to sleep. Thankfully, the day got much better after that.
As I said before, I have been stressing out quite a bit about the wedding preparations, even though things seem to be falling into place wonderfully. I picked up my dress after work (see: right), and since then, most of the stress has melted away. I played Pretty Pretty Princess with it once I got home, holding it up in front of me, but waiting to try it on. The suspense is making my stomach churn, but Iâ€™m far too paranoid to actually step-in-and-zip-up. Plus, I need some holdy-inny type underwear before I face that challenge.
The bridesmaidsâ€™ dresses were ordered last Saturday (see:left), at much relief to myself. I had to pay for a rush on them to make sure they would come in with enough time for me to ship them out to opposite shores of the US and allow the respective owners time to have them altered perfectly. By the time the dresses are here, I should have the sashes and other miscellany ready for the girls to save on shipping each thing separately.
Also on Saturday, the invitations showed up â€“ theyâ€™re now taking up space in one of the drawers in the dining room hutch commandeered for wedding pieces. The only things left I really have to freak about are the florist arrangements, rings (see: right), and getting everything else ordered online with enough time before the wedding to make stuff pretty. I really wish I had enough funds to hire a wedding planner.
All in all, things are going well. Contrary to my eating habits as of late, my body has still be shedding some pounds â€“ all I have to do now is help it along by actually going to the gym.
