Can't you just hear the opening strains of Europe's song in your head when you read that title? Yeah, me too... =) but the title is accurate in informing us that it is the final count down to me going from a Miss to a Mrs. (Scary!!!) Yes folks, in just 5.5 days I will be married to my best friend and shortly thereafter will be surviving what some might say is the Mormon Capital of the world...yes I will be moving to Utah and officially becoming what I, and many others not from Utah, a U-tard and/or a Utah Mormon.
I don't know if I could handle that...I am partial to the Idaho Mormon myself and I don't think I could ever admit to being anything other than that =D. I wonder what the profile of "Utah Mormon" is and what characteristics would I have to possess to be tagged as a "Utah Mormon?" Hmm...yeah let's not think about that.
Anyway, there has been a lot going around my house this last few weeks trying to prepare for it all...my wedding would definitely be categorized as DIY (that is do it yourself in case you didn't know) wedding and I am proud of that. I don't need nor want anything big and flashy and expensive. If I can't recreate it or do it on the cheap side and not have it still come out looking great and elegant then I don't need it. Besides that is a lot of money to be wasting away on just a few hours worth of fun and hey, let us be honest, if your the bride or groom, how much do you really get to enjoy of it?? I mean you have to be sociable and greet and thank everyone who shows up and heaven forbid if you don't speak to EVERYONE because you will always hear about it. What about refreshments? You spend all that money and how much of it do you actually get to enjoy your self? Little if any at all. Then if you are a perfectionist you are worried about everyone else who is helping out if they are doing their job correctly! And at the same time praying that NOTHING BAD OR UNEXPECTED happens. Yeah not a big fan of surprises...especially if they are not good surprises.
But as the title suggests we are in the last stretch or the 9th hour or whatever it is they say. This week will focus on mints, packing, finishing with final touches on wedding clothes and decor...crazy crazy crazy! Anyone want me to be guinnea pig for multiplying someone as to accomplish EVERYTHING that there is to do? Yes, I accept!!!!
So if you don't hear from me until for a while you know why! Hope to see ya there! Oh and be sure to follow Mark's and I's family blog for all the fun highlights of the wedding and our life together!
