The Beginning is Near

Today was my last day of work before I get married this weekend. Actually I was suppose to work a 1/2 day tomorrow but my boss politely said that maybe I should just not come back. She knows and I know that I'm doing nobody any good sitting and staring at my computer screen at work. At least before I could pretend like I was working and get all my wedding stuff done. Now - all the admin items are done and it's merely about physical action.

We leave tomorrow for Iowa. I'm ready for it to be here - and at the same time I feel like I have plenty to do in the mean time. I still have to pack the car, get the oil changed, get my nails done, re-make the veil, buy an eyelash comb and eye makeup remover, buy some hair pins/bobby pins, and get the ring bearer a gift.

It'll all happen - or it won't happen - and I'll still survive. Up until today I was running myself ragged with the details. It wasn't until this morning on the phone with the caterer (who finally called me back!) That I realized none of this matters. He very calmly said that he always forgets that to the bride this is a nerve wracking experience. For him - it's just another calm day at work. He's a pretty laid back guy as it is - but he does a wonderful job - and did a really great job soothing me this morning.

I had my hair consulation tonight and Emy came to learn exactly how to do it. $117 later and I had a beautiful "audrey" kind of do and some hair products to boot.

The posting might be sporadic this week at best - I'll be sure to post pics just as soon as I can. But if you don't hear from me - know that I'm having the most wonderful weekend marrying the man of my dreams and starting my life with him.

I hope you have a really great day!! Even though I don't really know you I am so happy for you.

I have to ask - Will Emily be in the wedding? Since you patched things up with her I wondered if you had asked her to stand up for you or if you merely asked her to attend the wedding.

I know you don't post pictures of Mr. M and yourself on your blog (except vague ones)but I hope you will put pictures up of the cake, food, flowers, Hall etc.

Also you haven't mentioned a Honeymoon - or is that coming at a later date?
