I said I’d be back Monday, but apparently I lied. As well planned and detail free as I thought I’d kept things, it turns out that the week before your wedding is total insanity. From having to go out to buy freaking envelopes for church payments to realizing you need bagels and orange juice for breakfast in the morning, the littlest errands keep coming up and turning my brain into a flustered foggy mess of which I’m not sure where to start. Ready or not though, here it comes. My wedding weekend!!!! And I know when all of the insanity dies down, I will be one happy happy girl to be married to my Prince Charming.
Last week I hit a breaking point. I was waking up grumpy every day and on the edge of tears at a time when I thought I’d be walking on cloud 9. I was letting the stress get to me, and I made up my mind that it needed to stop. That’s why I am refusing to let this pre-wedding week insanity drive me to the looney bin before making it down the aisle. I promise to do these things in the next 3 days as a single woman!
I will take care of myself.
I will relax with a facial mask, deep condition my hair, and get my 8 hours of beauty sleep nightly no matter what is going on.
I will exercise.
It will make me feel better about myself and my to-do list if I’ve broken a sweat at least once a day. It’s not about looks this week, it’s about endorphins!
I will let the little things go.
Didn’t find the new shoes I wanted for the rehearsal? Who gives a flying duck. I’ll wear another pair. Nobody will know and I’ll still look stunning because I’m bride, and that’s the rules.
I will say yes to happy hour.
Yesterday the “to do” list was far from complete, but when the fiance called and asked me if I wanted to grab a beer and some wings, it was just what I needed.
Well that’s it! Wish me luck as I try to complete the last of the preparations before family starts arriving from out of town on Thursday! I also have to give a shout out to my fellow July 12th bride, Lisa! Go check out her wedding banner giveaway and it could be yours!
