Why am I at work!?!?!

Oh yeah, cuz making money is cool especially when paying for a wedding that is THREE days away!! EEEEEE!!!

But I most definitely do not want to be stuck at my desk today! Don't brides get an automatic free week off before the wedding or something? Isn't that written into the rules somewhere? I think it should be. Luckily, I think my boss totally recognizes the fact that the three days I've worked this week are going to be a total wash. No productivity here! Just some putzing, daydreaming, and making lists for myself. And apparently blogging, too!

My emotions are still like a game of hungry, hungry hippo: spaztastic. But they are kinda moving more into the direction of excitement and I'm really, really trying to push the nerves and the stress away. GO AWAY, STRESS! I don't want to be your friend! I know we have this long history and all, but its just not working for me anymore. I don't want your bad influence!

We have some time to relax in the next few days in between running errands and finalizing details. We are also trying to make time to visit with some of the out of town travelers. As my friend from Seattle said, "I'm coming to town just to see you at your wedding, but I realize that I probably won't see you much at your wedding!" so we need some extra date time! And some State Fair time! Can't miss the Great Minnesota Get Together, now can I!? Wedding details, schmetails! I want a PRONTO PUP! And mini donuts. And hot dish on a stick. And some deep fried oreos. And beer. And whatever else my little tummy can fit!

And I've been writing my vows. Which has been way harder than I expected. So much to say and so little time! And dammit, its not helpful that I cry every time I try writing these dang things. But I think I finally got something good...hopefully... Well, I think it'll be good if I can make it through without being a blubbering mess. I have no idea which way that is going to go. I may be too nervous to cry. Or I may just break down and not be able to say anything at all. It feels like a 50/50 chance to me.

Oh! And can I just say thank you to the weather gods for looking fondly down on us and having a great forecast for this weekend? SO appreciated! We had an inside backup plan, but who wants to be stuck in a silly little room when there is a grand old oak tree to get married under! Sweat may run down my back with the heat and humidity that's forecasted, but I don't care! No rain! YAY!!!

So blog land...

Without further ado (or rambling), I'm heading out to finish my last day of work as a single lady, then off to getting sh*t done, and then getting married! We're flying out Sunday to Cali for the honeymoon and won't be back until the 5th! WOO! So wish me luck, please send some good vibes my way, and I'll see you on the other side!


I do have one last thing that I'm going to leave you with...but you have to wait a little bit for it! ;)

  1. YAYYYYY - have a great last day of work, two days running around before Saturday, a fabulous weekend of celebrating and a relaxing and lovely honeymoon!!

    (as an aside, I just put in my request for time off following the wedding - which also happens to be Xmas week, and my manager wrote back "um, you may want to take a few days off before the wedding too - trust me, you'll thank me later" so like you, I will work the week before up to Wednesday with Thurs/Fri off - but nice to know I'll regret even that when it gets here ;)

    I am so excited for you and cannot wait to hear all about you two reciting heartfelt, personal vows under a gorgeous big oak tree. Sigh. enjoy every minute!

  2. Yeah, it's almost here! Enjoy every minute under that majestic oak. Glad the weather is looking great for you, and yes, by all means, get to the fair! It will help alleviate the stress. :)

  3. weeeeeeeee! congrats. the other side is nothing like you've imagined it!
    but enjoy every moment, honor your emotions, smile and have fun! kiss your husband!

  4. Best of luck to you on your day, I'm completely jealous and cannot wait to be in your shoes. See you again sometime as a married lady!

  5. Haha! Go home!!! Kidding. The two days I worked the week of our wedding, I was totally worthless. And no one cared. They were equally as excited!

    Have so so so much fun! Soak in all of the love! Don't be afraid to show how crazy happy you are and enjoy it!

    See you on the other side girlfriend! <3

  6. Have fun at the fair and soak these last days in. I'm so excited for you! Writing your vows must feel huge. No surprises that it would very emotional to do. Good luck and hope it is magical and wonderful! I'll be thinking about you!

  7. Yay, yay, yay! Happy wedding day tomorrow! The weather is going to be sooo awesome! I can't wait to hear all about it!
