Can't Wait

Another busy weekend of wedding planning gone.  We had tons planned for this past weekend!  Friday, I finished all the invitations and mailed them out.  Also, went shopping for wedding decor and came home empty handed.  I did make it home in enough time to catch an unexpected, much needed, nap!  It felt good to be able to catch up on some rest for sure!

Saturday was an early morning meet up with the maid of honor, Amanda.  We met up at Panara and had some breakfast and chatted about flowers and centerpieces.  She liked the samples I had made and thought I did really well picking out the flowers.  It was nice to get a second opinion on things.  We then headed towards Castleton.  We stopped a few places to look at shoes.  I picked out a sweet pair of cowboy boots to wear for the wedding!  We went and ordered the toasting glasses and tried to pick the design for the tuxes.  I am surely decisioned out!  I told them to just let the groomsmen and Nathan pick what they want! Maybe I'll regret that later!!! LOL!  After the tux place, Amanda tried on a few bridesmaids dresses and found one I really liked.  We also headed back to the Poise Patch to get fitted for my dress for alterations.  It was really a good time.  I got to put on my dress again, only this time, add all the things to it to make it feel real.  I brought the bouquet, tried on different veils, took pictures and just imaged what the real night would be like. 
After the alterations, we went to pick up a sample cake from Taylor's Bakery.  Me and Nathan tried the cake and it was good, but just didn't 'feel' like a wedding cake, more like the birthdays you buy from the grocery store.  So I guess we are still on the hunt for a cake baker!
I decided that I wanted to see Natalie, my other bridesmaid, it the dress I liked, so, I called her up to meet me at the mall.  The store only had one size, but had her try it on to see how I liked it.  I did like the dress, and te store said another had a size that would work.  Natalie, however, hated this dress so made all excuses not to buy it.  But, it is my wedding, and the color and price was right.  I told the store to hold it and we would pick up the next day after she would have a change to try it on.
Saturday night, I met up with Nathan and we went together, to try to make peace with my mother.  I felt the talk went ok and maybe we can make it through the wedding.

Sunday, we needed to meet the caterer again and go over the set up and things at the venue.  Amanda again met us.  She is defiantly my built in wedding planner and I don't know what I would do without her.  The meeting with the caterer defiantly put me in an excellent mood!  He explained EVERYTHING to me and said that they would take care of EVERYTHING for me!  We did a walk through of how the room  would be set up, taken down, turned over to the reception, and everything in between.  He gave us some excellent ideas for where to put what.  He showed us a sample table setting and we tried out all the food and sampled several kinds of Champaign for the toast.  It really put my mind at ease and really helped to put a picture in my mind of the big day.  I AM SUPER EXCITED NOW!!!!  We also checked out the grounds again for cool pictures and what not.  Maybe it was the Champaign but I was sooo giddy when we left!
Afterwards, we all needed to meet up to have Natalie and Amanda try on  the dresses again and to make a final decision.  I love them!  Natalie still hates it and definitely resisted against it.  It certainly stressed me out, but in the long run, it's not about her. 

So with all that was accomplished, I was feeling really good this morning.  I felt like for the first time we were in a good spot with everything and that we were going actually pull this off! 
Damn that Murphy and his stupid law!!!!!
From the top of the mountain pushed off and fall to the jagged rocks below!  Must everything and everyone have an opinion and drama!  This is my day to marry the man I have loved for seven years!  This is about starting our life’s together as husband and wife.  This is about our happiness and sharing our love for each other with family and friend that love and care for us.  JUST SO YOU KNOW, IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU OR ANYTHING ELSE!  DONT BE JELOUS AND TRY TO SOUR THIS MOST HAPPY TIME!

As in the words of Nathan, "Out of everything else going on, all the decisions and plans, I JUST WANT YOU! THAT'S IT!"  I love you so much Nathan! You are my rock!
