ELEVEN (maybe ten by the time everyone reads this) more days!
I have to really sit down and solidify the thirty different lists I have started. (Yes, I'm a list-girl.) I have a list for things left to buy. A list for things left to DO. A list of what I need to give each vendor. A list of what to pack for the honeymoon. (and yes, I'm one of those. No way in hell can I just "wing it" and throw things willy-nilly into my suitcase. I need to know right down to the last pair of undies and dental floss, that I haven't forgotten a thing!) It's endless!
But at least now I see an end in sight. A light at the end of this long, dark tunnel! My Big D has been such a good sport through-out this whole process...from the manic craziness I've displayed right down to the obsessive tears. He's taken in all in stride. Just like me, he's very eager to finally have some fun. We deserve it! This has been a tough year, not only in part due to the wedding planning, so it will feel great to have a week away on our honeymoon to try to "forget" all our problems. And to visit my favorite big Mouse. :-) I swear, I'm like a kid, I'm so freakin' excited. We sat down and created a loose itinerary for the majority of the trip (while we're in Disney...thanks Dawn!!) cuz there is so much we want to see and do and now that it's just us going (in the past we've always gone with others and kind of been at their whim), we can actually DO all that we want. Neither of us wants to waste precious vacation time wandering around in circles, asking Minnie for directions!
Then the second half of the week that we spend at our friend's house near Clearwater Beach will be pure bliss. Relaxation. Drinking a beer on his back patio...or laying out and soaking up the warm sun at the beach while digging my toes in the sand (one of my favorite feelings).
Aaaahhhhhh....I can almost taste the salty air. And to compliment that salty air, I just bought a new bathing suit! I ordered it online yesterday from good 'ol VS and paid to have the express 2-day shipping to insure I get it stat! And no, there will be no bikini; with all the stress-eating I've done the last couple months, me putting on a bikini would make small children cry. Not a good thing.
So the cute red one is the tankini I bought and the bottom black skirt is what I bought since I'm sure there will be days (after vacation eating) that no one, I repeat, no one (well except for D!) will want or need to see my fat ass! It's cute and flirty, eh?
Anyway, now I gotta run and go work on my list for the craft store. Still a bunch of stuff I need there including but not limited to, the little pearl-tipped pins (for the fabulous bouts Keri is making!), candles for the centerpiece candle-holders, and a freakin' ring bearer pillow which I completely forgot all about till last week! Oops! I wonder what else I'm forgetting????
