I Woke Up and Wedding Stuff Was Everywhere!

Oh, hello there, hive! Long time, no see!

We did this cah-razy thing and went on vacation. Some people might consider it “a weekend” but I say if you leave early Friday and don’t come back ’til mid-day Monday, you leave the computer at home and sleep a lot, it probably counts as vacation. Plus I want to pretend I’m all luxurious and can do things like take vacation. So we went up to my family’s cabin, spent some time with neighbors, spent some time with my mom and brother, slept, and read books. And napped. Did I mention we slept? I was apparently suffering greatly from being awake for too long, but don’t worry! Problem solved!

I guess while I was busy sleeping, wedding things began to happen. One, my wedding countdown ticker thing began to really count down. I thought it was really cute and that I was being funny back when it said 100+ days and it said, “Uh, plenty of time.” Haha, oh Seahorse, you so funny.



Anyway, we are now in the window of time that constitutes as close to a month and half away as two months away, and we should probably do things like mail our invitations. All one of them. Hahaha more funny jokes!

Two, we are in the under-sixty-day window of time, which means we could apply for our marriage license any time now! I have no idea if this is actually exciting or just theoretically exciting. Either way, our town hall is pretty and fun to visit, so that in itself is exciting.

Three, Fancee got her wedding ring! And oh, it is pretty. Mine is still being made”¦ story coming someday, if you’re lucky.

Four, we have an invitation! A friend is designing them for us, and once they’ve been sent out and people can see them, I will tell you about their glory, their struggles, and our debate over what texture the belly band should be.

Oh Seahorse, there you go again. Hilarious.

AND THEN! Guys, I’m up to number five here. Look at all this wedding stuff I haven’t been blogging about! Lots! Five – we had our dress fitting yesterday. And it was pretty great. A whole post in itself (and really, I promise that one is coming soon).

So that’s what has been happening. I have loved my computer vacation, but I hope someone missed me (yes? was it you?) because that would make me feel special. I have not enjoyed being overwhelmed by catching up on blogs since I got back, but it turns out that the world doesn’t end if you click “mark all as read” and move on. A tinge of guilt for a moment, but then you’re fine! Moving on to the next big thing.

I’m sure I have exciting things to say soon, especially about dress fittings and invitations (did I mention I’m in love with the one invitation we have? I am. In love.). In the meantime, how are you doing? What did you do this weekend? What was the best not-really-a-vacation-vacation you have taken?


my perfect vacation (yes, rereading Harry Potter)

    I actually did miss your posts, no lie! Can’t wait to hear more details on these wedding achievements. I still have a little over 100 days to go. Perhaps when I reach under 60, I’ll get productive, too!

    Actually, just today, I thought I must’ve missed something, and went looking for your last post. When I saw it wasn’t since the 14th, I was like “Oh, man, where is she?” Hee hee. Glad you had a nice vacay. And, um, yeah, I reread Harry Potter ALL. THE. TIME.

    aw, I just want to cover you up with that blanket on the couch! Glad you got some much needed rest! Is it sad that I am looking forward to getting sedation dental work next week so I can sleep it off the next whole day after? It’s gonna be awesome.

    We’ve both reread Harry Potter So. Many. Times. Love it! Sounds like you had a wonderful little vacay and now the race is on for invites! It’s Seahorses vs. Stripes. Ours are, um, almost done… Yeah. LOL. Anyhow, I’m glad you’re back!

    I’ve re-read HP and loved it – which coincides with my 4th of July weekend in which I (you guessed it) slept and was fed by my mother in law!

    Aww, you guys! I think I blushed while reading all these comments!

    @Swiss Miss to Bee: I totally hear what you’re saying… I thought I was getting sick last week and I was secretly like, “YES! Some time off to sleep and relax!”

    @Miss Stripes: it’s on! our goal is Tuesday… :/

    Looks like you had a nice, relaxing weekend! We went to a mini, mid week, dinner-and-swimming-and-games party at a friend’s, and it felt like a vacation because of the good food, great company, and all the laughter. People need those times to just breathe and not say the word “wedding,” no matter how far along in the planning you are. It’s nice to not have it take over your life!

    Oh my goodness. I totally get post-vacation blog-catch-up anxiety too! The number of unread posts stresses me out so much, I usually just don’t read them for a while. Which of course makes the number get even higher.

    Glad to have you back!
