Like the duck…

John N had a saying that I am pretty sure he stole from somewhere. The saying was: The key is to be like the duck, smooth and unruffled on top but paddling furiously underneath. That is what I am trying to be right now. My tummy is just bouncing off the wall, I am alternately excited, crabby, anxious, happy, sad, giddy… and on down the line!

Frank is absolutely, hands down, the most awesome guy in the world and I am soooo lucky! I cannot wait to marry him!

Only FOUR days to go… I can hardly stand it!!!

One week from now…

And Frank and I will be finishing up our wedding pictures!!! I cannot even believe it!

But first, I must make it until then.

I checked the weather for Friday yesterday on the 10 day and it was 77 degrees and mostly sunny. I checked today and it’s supposed to be 68 degrees and partly cloudy with a 20% chance of precipitation. I hope the weather holds, but if it doesn’t–eh! No big deal! BRING IT ON, BABY!!!

One week from tomorrow…

And I will be Mrs. Frank!! πŸ™‚ I cannot even believe it!!!

Last night we met with the DJ and picked out the rest of the songs. We had dinner at Fridays. Tonight we meet with our pastor to go over the final details of the ceremony and discuss the rest of the results from our PREPARE inventory evaluation. Friday I am having my last “hurrah” so-to-speak with family and close friends. Saturday we finalize seating. Sunday I am going to move a TON of my stuff to Naperville. Monday is a dance lesson. Tuesday is my hair appointment. Wednesday is our last dance lesson and our final meeting with the reception hall. Thursday is the rehearsal. And Friday is the (gulp) WEDDING!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

I cannot wait. He is just the greatest!!!

8 days!!

Oh my gosh. I cannot believe it. Only ten days to go! I am so excited about the wedding–it’s hard to think about anything else!

Yesterday I returned a bunch of things to Target and to Crate and Barrel. I swapped the items at Target for closet organization items and then I am saving up the store credit at C&B for our dresser–yeehaw! Our registries are almost wiped clean and that is a great thing because there were so many things we needed–we had NOTHING with which to start our new home. But thanks to everyone’s generosity, we have everything we could possibly need to build our new home. Yippy!

I gotta run… TEN DAYS!! OH MY!

Well, it wasn’t that this weekend was sooo exhausting, but I just am not sleeping well! I have been having bad dreams about the wedding and I am NOT alone–Frank and my friend Erin have been having hideous dreams as well. Crazy!! I wake up at 6:00 a.m. thinking that for some reason the wedding is going all wrong or we have to cancel it…. not the best way to wake up!

This weekend Dad and I spent some quality time together. He assembled a desk while I put away a bunch of the shower gifts that we have been given. Then I whipped up some dinner for my Mom, grandma, Sarah and Dad. We had a nice little dinner in our little apartment. I just love the apartment!!

Last night Frank and I decided where we wanted to hang pictures and where we needed to put new pictures that we want to order. It’s a really exciting time!

Of course, last night Frank and I both realized that we are getting married NEXT week. How crazy is that!? The engagement went by so quickly and all of a sudden, here we are, almost married! And both of us are so excited about it and love each other and can’t imagine a better way to spend the rest of our lives… but at the same time… eeesh! It is *the rest of our lives*–doesn’t that sound just like a jail sentence? Except it’s not.

So yeah, I am working out some of the final trolley arrangements and transportation details today. I have a few things to pick up and drop off. My mom has really stepped up in the last week or so and done an incredible job helping me. I’d have to say Mom, Dad, Andy and Sarah all deserve the vacation they are taking after the wedding πŸ˜€

Only 11 days to go!! Boy do I have butterflies!!!
