So I had my mini-bachelorette dinner Friday night and it was SO fun!!! We kept it classy no worries. The girls and I (6 total) had so much fun! It was great because all my friends didn't know each other, so it was all different people coming together, and everyone meshed really well!!! Brian was gone for the weekend so I revamped the apartment...soon to be OUR apartment! IT was so strange, I moved my stuff there...and it isn't coming back with me...it's staying...anyone seen the Friends episode where Rachel moves out and Chandler moves in with Monica? Monica cries, "I'M MOVING IN WITH A BOYYYYYYYYYYYY." AH ahaha that's how I feel. Bittersweet but totally exciting!
Thank you for all your advice fellow bloggers! It was great! Off to get a banana on what remains of my lunch...which is 15 minutes :-(
I can't believe, tomorrow is TWO WEEKS TILL I'M MARRIED! This has been a crazy but exciting time, I'm trying not to let the stress get to me (which is easier said than done!) All the last minute things are getting accomplished, such as guest counts, meal counts, ordering chair covers, hair appointments, nail appointments, everything! Soon I will be writing placement cards and tying bows onto my wedding programs...it's SO SURREAL!
UPDATE: The race went really well! For those of you who don't know, I run a "turky trot" every Thanksgiving called The Manchester Road Race, it's huge, like 12,000 people, and is just under 5 miles long. I trained really well this year, and my goal was under 50 minutes....and I did it in 49:52!!! MY BEST EVER! (Nothing like 8 seconds below your goal!!!) But I stopped twice to hug people and get my picture taken by Brian and my Daddy, who waited and hoped they would see me, and I'm the one who spotted them! It was a Thanksgiving "miracle" that I found them ;-)
So, over Thanksgiving we watched Father of the Bride. Since I had watched it a week earlier and cried like a baby, I was more prepared to watch it and control my emotions. It was then that I started to notice similarities between my wedding and the one in the movie:
- It's in the winter
- Brian is my fiance and the fiance in the movie
- My middle name is Ann, the bride's name is Annie....and we have a dog named Annie!
- Both my dad and the dad in the movie own their own businesses
- My wedding planner is named Frank, in the movie it's Franc (Pronounced Fr-o-nk)
Things I hope will happen that happened in the movie are:
- Snow for our wedding day!
- Everyone has a great time dancing
- My parents look back at it with fondness
- And no bad weather for the flight out for our honeymoon!!! :-)
Ok so seriously, all you ladies out there, I'm a wreck. This weekend Brian is away and I'm moving some of my stuff into his apartment that I don't need, such as books, pictures and summer clothes. AH. It's so weird. I'm a disaster simply because I have so much to do and not a lot of time to do it in, so I took work off on Saturday and I'm dedicating the day to cleaning up my life and getting organized! Sigh. Any words of advice???
Off to go teach my 1st graders about graphic organizers...it's the special ed group. They're a trip.
12 more days till I leave for CT! Then no work till January 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
