          yeah, this is my exact trouble, trying to figure out how much is needed when for what! depending on how long each thing takes to come in once ordered, then the timing on is it something that i need to make with it when it gets here? or just store until the big day. aaarrrgggghhhh! why did i decide on a 10 month engagement instead of a year or more?

            My biggest problem right now is finishing all the computer projects I've been working on. I just need to find the time to sit down and do it already! I've been procrastinating like its the gym or something! AAARRRGGGHHHH!
            me too!!! once this semester ends i'll finish up my loose ends but it feels like there's so much.

            if it makes any of you feel better, my civil ceremony is in july (although we still have no date set because FI's mom is trying to figure out what friday she can take off work to fly here with his dad for it), and so as a result i have NOTHING done for the at home wedding because i cant tell anybody a date. i do have a dress, but it arrives in 2 weeks and then has to be altered.

            as soon as i know the freakin date in july, i have to tell our officiant (a friend), get my photographer friend to see if theyll take photos of the ceremony, and then find a place for dinner....book my hair appointment....etc etc etc. i had a panicked moment earlier today, but thank god only 6 people will be at my civil ceremony and i dont have to worry too much!

              It looks as if you put days of work into these beautiful Invites and if I were you I would be wanting to get them out ASAP too. Send! Send! Send! How many people will be getting invites?
              I am new to BDW and wanted to wish you the best of luck! I am expecting a baby in 4 weeks.

                  I have done nothing. Except make a baby. :) I am one up on you guys. ha!

                  Seriously.....I have done squat. I suck. My summer vacation starts June 6th, so I actually have over a month and a half to do everything....I am waiting until the last minute. I am a Taurus, therefore I procrastinate. :)
