I Have A Confession....I'm getting married!!!!

So you're probably thinking...WHERE DID SHE GO? Well I'll tell you....I've been swallowed up by all things wedding! I'M GETTING MARRIED ON FRIDAY! TWO DAYS! Right when you think you have all of your shit together, well yeah you find out that you don't and you're missing all sorts of small things. I.e. a cake topper. Oops.

Let's do a quick rundown of my confessions with Kathy...wedding style.



+ The Knot's seating chart tool will save you a world of frustration. USE IT FELLOW BRIDES. You want to save yourself from accidentally cussing out your in-laws for changing seating arrangements at the last minute because it's such a hassle moving people around? Not with this handy website!

+ Never use Crest 3D White FlexFit whitening strips. You want to know why? Because you'll end up crying to your dentist at 7a.m. saying that your teeth are splotchy white and in my case...getting married in two fucking days. Luckily he's positive that a normal cleaning will even everything out. Apparently these types of strips were only available to dentists a little while ago since you're only supposed to use them directly after a professional cleaning. Yeah definitely doesn't say that on the directions or packaging. I hope they're prepared for the verbal assault I'm about to throw down on them.


+ I've been so stressed out and anxious, my hips shrunk a little. Doing my kettlebell workouts have helped with all of that business too though. I just plank my way through the stress. #sweatingforthewedding.


+ Josh and I are planning on not having to check our bags at the airport so that means measuring out every effing little fl. oz. and only having ONE quart-sized bag each...apparently TSA thinks I'm a magician. I mean come on, at least two bags? All of that space will be taken up by flippin' SPF 70 so I don't turn into a lobster one day into being in Barbados. Rihanna can't see me like that.We'll see how packing goes tonight after the rehearsal...one week's worth of stuff in one carry-on....challenge accepted.


+ People keep on asking me if I'm nervous and I have to say I'm not. At least not for the reason they're thinking about. I mean come on...after 8.5 years I'm pretty positive about my relationship with this guy...I'm more so freaking out about face-planting down the stairs in my dress.

+ Despite all of the last minute hold-ups, freakouts, and the "omg I forgot about that" moments, my team of people have been UH-mazing and reassuring. I can't wait to breakout those dance moves on the big day.



+ I confess I am SO flippin' ready for this wedding to go down. I'm ready to be a Mrs.!! Bring it!!


P.S. I'll try to make a last shout out on the wedding day before I go on a week-long hiatus with the hubs!

  3. Sounds like Crest owes you for your cleaning.....and money for sending you into a panic attack days before the wedding. Just sayin.'

    Perhaps you can find the bag that Hermoine uses on Harry Potter to help you with your packing issues. I mean, she had everything in that thing!!!!

  15. Yay!! At least you've got a great excuse for a blogging hiatus! My hiatuses are usually just because I'm lazy. Lol. And now that I'm planning my wedding, I'll make sure to not forget the cake topper. Or use Crest strips. Can't wait to read your wedding posts when you get back!!

  19. SO excited for you and looking forward to lots of photos!!! OMG that bleach strip 911 sounds devastating!!! My dad's a dentist and he made me trays that I put gel into. I've had one instance where I got a little blotch...if it was before my wedding, I'd die! Luckily nowadays Photoshop can save lives. :) Happy prepping!
