Two weeks

Let me be the first to say, I am in awe of people who continue to lead normal lives while planning their wedding.
I still firmly believe I couldn’t have been more organized, more prepared, have any more support than my awesome friends & family have given. And still I don’t know how I could have continued functioning at my job in any productive fashion.
Just this past week: on Wednesday I got up at 6:30, spent a half hour with the dog & got straight to work on organizing my to-do list, making calls, sending emails & double checking paperwork. I took a little break to feed the dog (and myself, finally) in the afternoon, went to a meeting with my DJ, sat with my dad for an hour at a coffee shop to take a mental break, came home, made dinner & sat back down at my computer until 11:30 that night.
Now if that’s not a full day of work, I don’t know what is.
Honestly, the only reason I was able to focus so entirely on the wedding that day was because I’d spent the two days prior doing things for myself that were far as far removed from wedding planning as possible. I wanted to be sure I went up to Detroit to spend some time in the classroom with Christie, doing some other kind of lasting good. Her 2nd graders have totally won my heart, and I wish I could have stayed longer. Hopefully I can make it back before the end of the school year in mid-June.
Today I have my hair trial with the amazing Jami over at First Impressions. I think I’m doing this a lot later than most people, but I’ve trusted her exclusively for the past 4-ish years to keep my hair looking great & she has never ever let me down. And all the people I’ve sent over to her love her too. Seriously, call her. She will change your life.
Tomorrow, I have a makeup consultation at MAC to get myself the right stuff to do my own makeup. Yes I’m going to do it myself. I’ve always loved doing my own makeup & I know some big girl products will go a long way. It’s kind of ironic that I only buy my hair products from a salon, but I still get my makeup along side my groceries. Oh well, I’m getting schooled.
After that, with any luck today, the only things left to do are the DIY projects over at my mom’s. I’ll be camping over there for a few days making sure all of that is ready to go by the end of the week.
Then, with one week to go, we can all just relax, wait for my sister to have her baby and then GET MARRIED!!!!
