I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
Got a big blow and a little bit of anxiety yesterday knowing that we are less than 2 weeks away from the big day. Although I'm excited, its very daunting to think that I have to put all of this together is 8 days. But when I got home my FH had a worse day than I did and ended up comforting him more than he comforted me.
Long story short, me saying what I already knew about us getting married is the most important part - not all the hoopla and other things going on around us. We cant change what other people do or what goes on we can only live our lives and know that everything is part of Gods plan for us.
We both needed that little reminder because no matter what happens, we will still have one another.
I think our co-pep talks worked really well and we got a little diversion therapy because the 4,000 rose petals (forgot to take a photo, sorry) I ordered from China on ebay for $20 (with free shipping) came in yesterday and we separated them while we chatted. It wasnt really all that bad and I think it helped that we had a mindless task to complete.
I also made up 25 Tears of Joy packets (forgot photo again, Im slacking) before we went to bed. I printed up labels with regular mailing labels, Avery 5160. Bought 6 packs of individually wrapped tissues, and 2-12 packs of clear, medium sized lollipop bags. I put 3-4 tissues in each bag, folded the bag over and used the label to hold it shut. Im going to put out 20 in the chairs at church for the ceremony and add the rest to the tote bags for my girls.
I promise Ill post pictures of all the little projects that I keep completing. I was just a little pre-occupied yesterday :)
Side note - Today Im getting a much needed last minute addition to the wedding Im so excited. I cant post it, but its going to be great! Hopefully it fits (hint). Im going to pick it up from DHL Today! So things are looking up on Day 9. Not sure how the day is going to end, but it off to an excellent start.
