Hi there! Happy Wednesday and Happy First Day of Summer! It is totally going to feel like summer where I live today. We have a heat advisory and the temperature is supposed to go up to the high 90′s! It’s already hot and humid outside and it’s only in the 6am hour! That is crazy. I can only imagine how hot it is going to be and feel like. I’m not looking forward to that. I’m glad that I’ll be in the air conditioning all day. I’m sure by the end of the day I will be frozen because my office makes it freezing. That is alright though. I’d rather be cold than hot. At least if you are cold, you can put on layers. If you are hot, you are pretty much stuck besides letting a fan blow in your face or trying to get into air conditioning. That is my reasoning behind everything.
Moving on, let’s get to Wedding Talk Wednesday today! I have 8 more Wedding Talk Wednesdays until our wedding! How crazy is that?! That is also kind of scary to think about because I still have a lot to do. I have officially started on our diy items. I know it is going to be mass chaos about 3 weeks before our wedding. That is when our graphic designer should be done all of the various signage and things. So I am going to need to get all of that printed and figure out if I am putting those items in frames, etc. I’m confident that I will be able to handle it. I’m planning on taking off random days next month because I have a lot of time accrued and I am slowly reaching the point where I am reaching my max and I am not going to be able to accrue anymore time. So I need to start taking off random days which would be helpful anyway so I can get things done that I need to.
I’m hoping to get more diy items done this weekend. I was hoping that the one project that Mike and I started last weekend would have been done last weekend but no the spray paint can had issues and exploded. I tried to exchange it and they didn’t have the color that we needed. So I will be exchanging it this weekend. I’m almost done with my bridesmaids gifts which is awesome! I have worked really hard on them and I hope they like them. I am still waiting to receive two items that I ordered online. I’m waiting for our calligrapher to send back our envelopes so I can mail out our invites. I’m really excited to send them out! Then next Tuesday, I start alterations for my wedding gown! I cannot wait to see what it is going to look like when it’s completely fitted to my body. I am very excited for that moment.
So today I wanted to talk about what I like to call “getting ready” music. I’m planning on having Mike make me 2 mix cd’s to listen to while the bridesmaids and I are getting ready in the bridal suite. I wanted to do one mix cd of just wedding type music and the next one has to be music we can dance to. I am planning on having an all-out dance party while getting ready. It relaxes me and I think it will get everyone excited to walk down the aisle. At least I am hoping that is what it does. So here are some ideas that I have and I am hoping all of you can help me out with some songs to add!
