Crazy Crazy Crazy

Over Christmas break I made a promise with two of my roommates from freshman year at BYU (The two responsible for me meeting Scott). We promised that each of us would update our blogs once a month. January and February were easy to find time to blog, not as easy to find things to blog about. I kept wishing that something big was happening in my life that I could blog about. Well, now something big is happening in my life, and I still don’t know what to blog about.

I am getting married in less than a month and my life has been consumed by everything that goes into getting married. I feel like I am pretty much done with the planning, but I am sure I will realize that I forgot a ton of stuff once the date gets closer. The big things have been taken care of. I have the temple scheduled on August 6th, and my endowments scheduled for August 5th. I have a receptions center scheduled, I have asked a couple people to help with my reception food (Thanks by the way!), I have my dress, invites are sent out, and I have my fiancĂ© (The most import thing to have). That’s all I really need, isn’t it?

Now it is all the little things that I need to worry about. How do I get one of my bridesmaids out to Utah from Virginia? Will the idea I have in my head for my center pieces work out as well as I would like? Who all is planning on attending the sealing, and luncheon? What do I want to do for my send off? Veil or no veil? What would I like the guys to wear? How do I clear up my skin before Aug 6th, because I think the stress is making me break out?

If you are part of my family, or a close friend that wants to participate then you are welcome to come. As of right now we are planning on doing a roast for me and Scott the evening of August 5th. I would love for anyone who is in town to be there.

There are both pros and cons of getting married.

· I have to plan a wedding
· I don’t know how to respond when someone I don’t know gets me a gift
· There is so much to do and to think about
· The funds in bank account keeps getting smaller

· I have a bunch of great pictures of me and Scott
· I finally will get to know what happens in the temple
· People give us gifts

This week is like the week of bridal showers for me. Saturday I had a ward bridal shower, there were a lot of people I didn’t know, I guess that is what happens when you leave your home ward for a singles ward for a few years. Then yesterday I had a family bridal shower that Scott’s aunts threw for me and Heidi. They call it a traditions shower and everyone brings a gift that is a tradition for their family. It was fun hearing the different things they do as traditions. Tomorrow I have my last bridal shower, which is the one my college and high school friends are coming to. I didn’t think I would have anyone to throw me a bridal shower and I ended up with 3.

I had my bridals yesterday, which was quite the adventure. The weather has been so crazy lately. Within minutes the weather went from being sunny one minute to an absolute down pour the next, then back to sunny. I now can say that I have had to run in a wedding dress, haha. I hope the pictures turned out okay, considering the fact that I only got about an hour and a half of sleep the night before. The good news is that I have an amazing photographer, seriously I usually hate pictures of me, but our engagements turned out so well that me and Scott had a hard time choosing which picture we like best out of the 37 we narrowed it down to. If you are in Utah County and in need of a great photographer I would recommend Melanie Paxton.

There is also a lot going on with me outside of wedding stuff. I am in the middle of a promotion at work. I am getting trained to do a bunch of new things. I am excited for the promotion to actually go through. I have been switching off between day shifts and graveyard shifts. It isn’t too back when I work a graveyard shift and then have a good 26 hours before my next shift, but when I go from the day to the graveyard shift the 6 hours between doesn’t feel very long at all. The best part is that I am picking up an extra shift which means I am getting some overtime pay. The worst part is I have only gotten about 4 hours of sleep in the last 2 nights. Lets hope for my sanity that I can get some sleep tonight
