As you can tell by the lack of posts, and billions of Tweets, I have been really busy the last few weeks. I started a new part-time job with the Portland Sea Dogs, working the home game camera. The majority of my time has been spent getting the last minute details of my wedding planned. Coordinating with a ton of people to make sure everyone is on the same page, and ready for the big day.
There was a time where I thought I had everything done -a couple blog posts back- but then things changed, some of the details and plans had to be more refined, alterations on dresses had to be done, I forgot to plan a couple things. A few weeks ago, my husband-to-be and myself, went on a Godzilla kick, watching all the movies. I can see now how they would compare a bride-to-be to Godzilla, to create the term, “Bridezilla.” I could relate to this monster and his aggravation with people not understanding , and invaders trying to destroy our big day. All I will really say about that, I have AMAZING family and friends! Not only do they deal with me, they make things better.
My friends also came through BIG TIME with my bachelorette party. We had a ladies only adult toy party, followed by a road trip to Bangor, Maine to visit Hollywood Casino, and some dancing at Barnaby’s. We stayed up until 5am being ridiculous and laughing and crying. Well I cried, happy tears, for about 5 minutes.
Now that the party is over, it has set in that I am getting married this week. I think the man is getting scared, because my squeals are getting more high pitched every single day. The excitement is always there, and little burst of over excitement keep popping up out of nowhere. Yesterday I was bouncing off the walls, even though I was dealing with a very last minute, very inconvenient, detail of the wedding that had to change. I still had nothing but smiles and productiveness all day.
I am still not nervous about who I am marrying, there is no doubt there! The nerves that are driving me nuts are the ones that know I will be crying over any sentimental thing. I do not cry when I am in pain, I do not cry over spilled milk, but animals getting their feelings hurt, and life’s sentimental moments make me crying uncontrollably. I dehydrated myself last night while I was trying to choose my Daddy/Daughter song to dance to. Another one of those last minute things that did not get done. Oops!
All that being said, I AM SO EXCITED!!!! 4 days to go until I marry my Mr. Right!!!!
Needless to say, I probably will not be writing another blog for a couple weeks. Between the wedding, Thank You cards, work, possibly a road trip weekend honeymoon, and being a Newlywed, I will be busy. I hope you all are having a fantastic April, and finish it off on a good note.
Final note: I send my prayers down to the people affected by the senseless act of violence in Boston, MA. Maine stands by you and we are ready to help you heal. God Bless!
