Exit sanity, enter bride-brain

I am safely ensconced into my parents' house and everything wedding-related that was in my house in Philly is now in my parents' garage. I DID NOT want to delay us any further by taking pictures of our positively JAM-PACKED little crossover though, before we set out, plus it was dark. I'm not really great with pictures right now anyway, because I take most of them from my phone and e-mail them to myself, well, my parents live in Podunk, PA and so I'm not exactly getting killer 4G service out here. ANYWAY, until I move to a more civilized area (believe it or not, the hotels in Amish country!) I'll just pop in with quick notes here and there. Sorry ahead of time for no pictures, oh but it'll be well worth the wait, then you'll have all sorts of magical wedding goodness flooding your eye orbs.

So soon my pretties! Until then, please believe I have lots of lists and things are slowly getting checked off. Vanilla extract favors are bottled, the whole kitchen smells delish. Place cards are inserted into corks, and the bubbles are ready to be blown! ( keep your minds out of the gutter, I'm so excited about blowing bubbles!!) My mom has almost finished my garter and my dad, almost the bench, which is more of an amazing hope chest. Both have gone above and beyond what I had hoped for. My garter is kind of traditional, but it's also got some fantastic burgundy detail and will have some feathers and be a little loud with a pretty decent-sized rosette detail. I also got my little birdie cake toppers from my aunt and they're fantastic, and the fabric; a musical score cotton, is just perfect.

I ended up buying new pashminas, on a whim; I am tired of dealing with this woman with her aqua-for-light-blue pashminas and I just angrily pulled out my credit card- you know, retail therapy. They came, really quickly, and with no fuss, and while a little thin, they happen to be the perfect color. As in, they match the groomsmen ties perfectly. That was an unexpected pleasantry, I thought I was going to have to run out and pick something half-assed last minute.

Vows are written! And after all my nagging, I'm sorry to say that Kyle finished before me. I might have started earlier, but in this race, the hare won... this time. Well, there's much and more to do, with 3.5 days left, I'm still feeling good. I had a few small moments today, but I have a great core group around me that won't let me go crazy. I'll update with pictures when I get service :)

Tomorrow I finally tackle this alter support system!
