Seeing as though I blogged a whopping total of 4 times in the month of August, I think I owe you guys a recap. I haven’t been blogging because I’ve pretty much been feeling like this cat.

Where to start?

I went to NH the weekend of the 20th and Derek and I got a ton of wedding stuff done.

Saturday started with my final wedding dress fitting! It went well and I am officially picking up my dress, Friday the 23rd. 🙂

Next up were the wedding bands! Derek and I went down to Cardin’s where Derek’s mom works and we picked out our bands. Derek’s is going to cost more! Who would’ve thought?


We then went to AC Moore (craft store) and picked up a few supplies including frames, material for Bongo’s tux and some fake fall leaves. After this, we split up. Derek went to his tux fitting and I met up with Derek’s mom to pick out all of the flowers.

Flower stuff was fun and I am happy with all of the decisions made. Bongo is even getting a tiny flower 😉

Sunday consisted of a wedding hair trial at my friend Christina’s. I think it went well and I was able to make a final decision with how I want my hair done on the day of the wedding.

Man, my neck is long.

Here are a few pictures of how my hair won’t be on the day. Everything was loosely done anyway, the trial was more about the placement of where I wanted my hair on my head.

Since this weekend, I’ve stressed a lot, I procrastinated, I progressed and then Derek went to Montreal for his bachelor party.

Basically I have been an emotional wreck. I can literally cry on command and I have not felt like myself. I go through periods where I am ecstatic about the wedding and I cannot wait to be married! Other days I dread the whole wedding planning process, I wish I had more time and I want to have a meltdown and break something. I can’t sleep well either.

I also went through some stupid wedding drama a few weeks ago. I don’t really want to talk about it on the blog, but I’m over it now and I’m sure it will be discussed AFTER the wedding.

I also came back from NH with this lovely crack in my windshield. We ended up paying out of pocket for a new windshield and we are now waiting for the insurance to reimburse us. We think a rock hit it on the way home and then the crack continued to grow.

Let’s see. We’ve made many other decisions regarding the wedding, but nothing too exciting. We still have a TON to do and we are extremely overwhelmed. I know it will all work out in the end, but I am having trouble not getting consumed by the stress of it all.


This weekend is my bachelorette party and I couldn’t be more excited! A bunch of my friends are coming out and my sister/maid of honer and friend/bridesmaid are coming down from NH for the weekend. I DEFINITELY need the fun weekend out and I know it’s going to be a ton of fun.

One good thing that I haven’t been stressing about is my body and just the fact that this stress is not causing me to gain weight. I’ve actually managed to lose a couple pounds and I’ve been doing a really good job eating healthily.

In exactly 23 days I will have a husband! Eeek! 😀
