I've been loving the last few days.
My sister is here with us, the Mister and I are both off work, and we are all getting excited. We've only got some small jobs left to do, and thank god none of it is DIY, so it's been fun just hanging out and get the last bits and pieces sorted.
I've been spending time with my friends and family from OS and interstate. And trying to get enough sleep. And exercising. And eating easter eggs. And shopping for cake toppers.
I decided last week to get a cake. It's just a small token cake for the sake of having something to cut. Just a 12 inch chocolate cake with white icing from Regines.
We aren't doing a first dance so it will be the last formality of the night.
Then we thought it could be good to have a cake topper so we went into Major Cakes in Vic Park which is small daggy shop selling all sorts of creative cake making supplies. They had a shelf full of corny cake toppers, I went with this one because it is so funny. $10.25, bargain. I came home and showed it to the Mr who is also seeing the funny side.
We bought the boys shirts and we are getting them pressed at the dry cleaners because we all hate ironing.
We have made our ceremony music CD which we are taking to our ceremony rehearsal tonight.
I got my dress which is now safely hanging at Grandmas house on a crochet coat hanger she made specially. bless.
I'm still sulking about the weather. It's overcast today and one website is forecasting late showers for Saturday. (Damn you ABC weather!- at least BOM is being slightly more optimisitic and surely they are the ones with all the cred?)
At any rate I have ordered 4 of those big outdoor mushroom heaters because the last few nights have been a little chilly. I hate being cold and hopefully that will take the edge off a cool night.
But all in all these last few days have been sweet.
Girls, do everything in your power to make the days before your wedding as pleasant as you can. Don't procrastinate, be realistic about whats achievable, don't leave all the crappy jobs for last, or take on too many projects. Cull and Delegate. Engineer yourself a managable workload. It's so lovely having time to feel happy about all the cool things about to happen and only stressed and nervous about the things that are big and exciting.
