One month to go

As my Dilbert desk calendar reminded me this morning, we are truly in the homestretch now.

Wow, it's weird to think that this is my last "XX month(s) to go" post. I didn't do them every month, but it's especially strange to look back at November posts and see "7 months to go." Yikes. I don't even know how I made it! With the anticipation and excitement I feel now, it's hard to fathom even going through one more month of this... I can't imagine being back at seven months.

This milestone was "celebrated" with yet another wedding dream last night. And of course, it can't ever be a beautiful wedding dream. No, no. It's always gotta be a total catastrophe, everything-you-can-think-of-goes-wrong dream. Except this time, the focus of the dream was on things not being done in advance like they should have been.

Favors? Not done.

Table assignments? Nope, we hadn't even discussed it.

Placecards? Non-existent.

Table number luminaries? Well, we had table #3, but that was it.

Programs? Nada.

Bridesmaid jewelry? Sorry.

So you can easily see where my mind is at. I don't need some fancy dream interpreter to tell me what this stuff means. Clearly, like any good bride-to-be, I'm anxious about the things I have left to do.

The good news is that when I woke up this morning, I had a renewed sense of urgency to get it all done. A fire under my ass, if you will. And waking up also brought a tremendous sense of relief because I realized that no, it is not the wedding day, and yes, it is the one-month-to-go mark, but don't slack, because there's really only 4.5 weeks left to do all this. So get it done, Heather. Or as Michael and our brother-in-law like to say (jokingly, people):

Git 'er done.

I'm feeling the same fire under my ass today too! ;) Geoff and I are applying for a marriage license during my lunch break - seems like a fitting way to celebrate the -1 month mark. ;)

Hey Lyndsay--We are going to go get our marriage license tomorrow during lunch! Certainly a good way to celebrate the one-month mark. :)

Hi Heather,

I have a questions for you, regarding your invites, how did you cut your little monogram squares that you placed on the belly band? I am for some reason, having a difficult time figuring it out? and what size to make? I have a great paper cutter, but not sure if a square punch is better or what, jeez, the littlest things are so difficult? Any advice? thanks.

I am not even officially engaged yet, and I have the same dreams! 2 so far. Its always the day before the wedding and I don't have a dress or a photographer or a venue and I'm trying to do STD's the morning of the wedding. I wake up so panicked!

So I know where you're coming from.
