Wedding plans are still going along swimmingly!
Mommy is busy making the wedding invitations by hand (go, Mommy, go!) and making my wedding dress (super Mommy!), thus saving massive amounts of money.
My damas (bridesmaids) will be measured to order their dresses next week. It took me weeks to find something they would all like. I finally decided on two different dresses… 3 damas in one dress, and 3 in another. Victory! It only took me about 30 seconds to choose my own dress!
Yes, my damas’ dresses are BLACK. I know I’m insane. Still, they’re so cute, and it’s a color that they can use to any event later on, should they so choose. It contrasts really well with my dress, though! It will be pretty! I swear I’m not crazy! (I think “I swear I’m not crazy” is the battlecry for crazy people… whatever. It’s gonna be awesome.)
The damas and me are all worried about dress fittings! Some of us plan to lose weight, so hopefully adjustments to all dresses will be quick and easy.
My diet is going well! I eat things that I love, and I’ve lost about 10 pounds in the last 2 months without killing myself on some boring diet. Slow and steady is the way to go.
My parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins are all starting to look at hotels in Cancun for the week of the wedding. I’m so excited! For the first time in the last five years, I’ll have (almost) all of my favorite people in the same country. I almost cry just thinking about it. It’s really hard living in another country in that sense. No matter where you are, you’re always missing somebody. For one amazing week in July, that won’t be the case.
I really need to get started on candle-making soon. Figuring out what kind of candles I want might be an even better idea.
On a non-stressful topic, Fiance and I celebrate our 3-year boyfriend/girlfriend anniversary on Wednesday!!! It’s gonna be the last one!
