What can I say…I knew it would happen. I knew I’d fall off the blogging bandwagon at one point or another, I just didn’t know when. If the time between the last post and this one doesn’t give you any idea, well, it’s been a while. My bad.
Things have been pretty crazy – someone apparently told work that I needed a whole lot of stuff to do, because I sure have had a LOT to do. Which I guess is okay, since it’s better to be busy than bored, but still.
The big day is coming quick – only 65 days left! I think I’ve been pretty good up to this point, with getting things in order, and to switcharoo that one around a bit, ordering things (like my veil, which should be here any day now!), mailing things, emailing other things, planning, re-planning, making crafty things – lots of stuff having to do with things. And I don’t think I’ve gone too ‘bridezilla’ on anyone yet. Now that’s not to say I don’t have any peeves, because I do. For instance:
Email between Katie and Caterer:
Katie: “Hi Caterer – we need to get everything in order with the rentals (linens, china, tables, chairs, etc.) Can you let me know what you need from me?
Caterer: “Sure thing! What colors did you decide you wanted to do for the linens?”
Katie: “Navy Blue”
Caterer: “Ok, so will that be Midnight, Royal, Onyx, Sapphire, Bat Poop or Blueberry?” (bat poop was not really an option, just a little exaggeration for entertainment is all…but I’ve heard it is blue…in case you were curious….anyway…)
Katie: “Navy Blue”
Caterer: “Right – which Navy?”
Ok – really. At this point, I don’t care. I don’t have swatches of my bridesmaid colors, I don’t have my flowers picked out, but you know better than I do what the difference between Midnight, Royal, Onyx and Sapphire are, soooo how about you make the decision for me.
Of course I didn’t say it exactly in those words, but I did tell him to pick what he thought would look best given my color palette. Just one of the many rants I have – stop making things harder than they have to be. Please.
There are a lot of fun things coming up – My first shower is on Sunday! For all the Richmond / closer-to-richmond-than-roanoke friends and I am SO excited! The following weekend is my Bachelorette party in Williamsburg at Busch Gardens, hoping for no rain, since I’m pretty sure there is no back up plan. That same weekend is Roberts bachelor party – I know no details of this. Pretty sure I don’t want to either 🙂
Then we have the wedding of our friends, Scott and Melissa, in Southern Shores, which will not only be an awesome wedding, but a nice getaway for a few days! There are a few other weddings/showers/parties from now until our big day and we’re looking forward to all of them!
My apologies for this not being incredibly exciting and more of a rant than anything else, but I guess this is what happens when there’s 65 days until your wedding – it sort of takes precedence 🙂
I’ll be back soon, I promise!
