Finals Time

I feel like I'm back in school. Like its the end of the semester and finals are looming close. Everyone keeps asking me if I'm excited for the wedding and I never know what to say. Yes, of course I'm excited, but I also have a little heart attack every time I realize how soon its coming up! Its like when people would ask me if I was excited for summer. Uh, yeah, obviously! Everyone loves summer, but first I have to go through finals first and not lose my sanity!

My goal here is to get stuff done and NOT procrastinate, dammit! and then have a week before the wedding where I can actually be excited and anticipate the upcoming day and enjoy the ride. I dun wanna be a stress ball!

And its actually coming along great and I'm super excited because I have two lovely crafts that I want to share with you all! They are all finished and they don't look like a child did them! Unless Martha Stewart has a child...then maybe they look like her child did them. One of the best parts too is that the mister has been involved in lots of them! He made pom poms, he pretty much did all the work for the tree cookie escort card holders, and I even had him decoupaging! awesome!

There are more crafts coming too! Like the flower that I'm making out of the cut off train from my dress to rest on the hip of my dress. And the lighted trees that we are making. And the mason jar lanterns that might not qualify as 'crafts' but I'm going to include in our DIY section.

huh...I never really thought of myself as DIY, but maybe I am? who knows. and who cares! :)

August 28th is only 25 days away! and I have this feeling that time isn't going to stop. So the 28th is only going to get closer and then BAM! be here!


  1. I know exactly how you feel. When I was finishing my thesis, everyone would ask me if I was excited to graduate. Of course I was, but then I remembered that to graduate I had to actually finish my thesis. And that drove me into a cold sweat every time.

    I'm excited to see all your crafts!

  2. I never knew what to say when people asked how excited I was. Like you, I was excited, but I don't think most people know how quickly our heads scroll through the giant list of things we have to do when they ask that question, haha.
    And your DIY-ing sounds like it's going to be amazing. The flower especially intrigues me.

  3. Yay! I can't wait to see all the handy work!!

    (Oh, and Martha has a daughter. And I think she's just as on-it as her mama, but with more humor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexis_Stewart)

  4. Shut the door! A flower out of your train?!!!! No wonder you couldn't share all these little secrets over email!!! I'm pumped!

    @miss fancy pants- when people ask me if I'm excited I just want to go WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Weeeee! I wanna see the flower the most! I'm excited for you!

  6. i am so excited about the flower out of your train! too cool. i know what you mean about the 'are you excited' question. I want to say 'yes of course i am but i also think i have a stress ulcer now'
