10 days!

I am going to apologize right now for the boring, bland, unoriginal, and very unfunny post that I am about to write. My excitement for the upcoming nuptials is at an all-time high but I'm not so sure you could tell that by looking at my face--it is one of complete bewilderment and exhaustion!

Michael and I went to our own homes this weekend--he was able to take a mini break from the wedding and his future bride, and I dove full-force into last minute plans. I found some shoes and a necklace for the rehearsal dinner, and we also finalized plans with Confectionately Yours. (Shameless plug for them--they are amazing and SO NICE--use them for all of your cake needs. I promise you won't be disappointed!)

Mom discovered on Monday what she has been missing out on for so many years: chair covers. She went to a store to simply reserve a cake stand and left with chair covers on the brain. She drove to Tulsa yesterday to finalize plans with the museum and had about 45 different table linens that we could mix and match. We finally settled on an arrangement that I think is going to look very nice, and I must say, the chair covers did "take it to the next level." Now I'm praying that these leaves will stop being so stubborn and let go of their green coloring. Stupid chlorophyll. :)

If the rest of this doesn't just scream exhilirating, Michael, mom, and myself spent last night separating M&Ms by color. I really can't think of much that is more exciting than that. We also pulled out all of the centerpieces to make sure we had them all here and in place. The apartment looked like a tornado (a beautiful tornado filled with love and marriage no less) had covered every square foot of the place. It doesn't look much better today but mom did a good job cleaning everything and putting it all away.

So now we are at 10 days and there really isn't (and I mean it this time) much more to do until next Thursday. I'm hoping I can enjoy the next week and stop thinking about all of the particulars that are out of my hands. Michael has been able to manage that quite nicely so I'm hoping to model myself after him.

There you have it, my pathetic attempt at a post. I hope I didn't forget anything but I'm sure I did. Oh yes! When I came back Sunday evening, Michael surprised me with a new, beautiful quilt for the guestroom bed. He and his mom picked it up this weekend and it was such a great surprise! So now both beds are fully (and apppropriately) clothed and I no longer have to keep the guest bedroom door shut out of sheer embarrassment. The apartment is turning out to be quite the cozy place. Come November you are all welcome to stop by and stay awhile. :)

Pray for those leaves!!

Happy OCTOBER!!!

I said something to myself this week that I haven't said once in the past 11 months: The days are flying! For so long I felt like snails were lapping the pace of each day and now I can't tear off the pages from my desk calendar fast enough. I love how my mom put it: We are teenagers again (19 days until the wedding)! :)

This weekend was a lot of fun, we went to the TU vs SMU soccer game on Friday night--it was a great game. We ended up tying but I don't think anyone walked away disappointed--the boy's played really well. Saturday was very low-key, which was nice because yesterday was quite eventful. We went to the 9:30 church service for Andrew Homan's baptism. Afterwards we went to the mall to return a few things and then had a quick lunch at Panera Bread (I finally found something there that I LOVE so my hatred for the restaurant has dissipated quite a bit). At 1:30 we met Bryan (our DJ) for coffee at Utica and we went over some of our ideas for the big day. He is a senior at TU and has his own DJ business. He seems like a great guy and very professional. I let him know that YMCA, Sean Paul, and anything from Grease have no place at our wedding. :)

Let's continue with the day... At 3 we went back to the church for Michael and Vince's ordination. It was a great service and I was proud of them both. We had a small break between that and their post-ordination party at 6p at Vince's house. We went there for a few hours and made it home just in time for the season premeire of Desperate Housewives--Michael was thrilled! :) He had a soccer game late last night that I chose not to go to due to the ridiculously long day we'd just had. He has much more energy than I do!

I took Thumbs back to the vet this morning for a check-up. She seems to be doing really well--she does not live to eat right now (who knew?!) but she still has an appetite and is drinking water regularly. She purrs a lot and has been quite the snuggler lately so I think she's doing just fine.

Work has been pretty crazy lately--everyone is needing me to do stuff for them before I leave for the wedding/honeymoon. It's keeping me pretty busy, which adds to why the days are flying by at such a rapid pace!

Michael is going to Coppell and I am going to Fort Smith this weekend to take care of some last minute wedding plans. It is weird to think that this will be the last time I go home as Meredith Besancon! I have a feeling it will be a very sentimental weekend for us both! It is also weird to think that at the end of this month we will be married and back from our honeymoon. Talk about everything changing in a moment's notice!!!
