Just Got Real

So. It finally happened. We have PICKED A DATE!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!!

Although the actual date is, for the moment, under wraps, we're finally ready to commit to a day (or, ok, right now we've got it narrowed down to a 3-week period...). This means that now every time I see a pretty dress or nice pair of shoes or hear some music, where before I might have thought "Oh, that could be lovely in a wedding," now I think "Oh, that could be--HOLY CRAP I ACTUALLY HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS!!!" For the past 11 months I've been (semi) blissfully living the life of the engaged, but not the wedding-planning. It's been nice, but that's all over, folks.

Dress? Reception hall? Wedding bands (jewelry)? Wedding bands (music)? All decisions I've happily put off, now which are careening towards me. Oh I needa wedding planner (just kidding! I already have one, and her name is Mom, and if you think she hasn't sent me less than 11 emails today, you haven't been paying attention).

So, I'm excited, thrilled, nervous, overwhelmed. Right now I'm busy running over the (sparse, dreamy, naive) notes I made since we got engaged while I wait for Dave to finish his exams so we can then hit the ground running. The guy already made a spreadsheet! This is why I love him... In the mean time, I'm trying to enjoy my last few precious weeks before we get swallowed up by the wedding industrial complex. Today, already burned out, I sent Dave a pictorial representation of my feelings:

Sure is an adorable little soul-sucking monster...


  1. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I'm so excited! Yay!!!!!!!

  2. As though he would (could?) do anything less.
