JBean, I'm sorry for everything that is causing you issues, and not that I wish any of those of you, but it's good to hear others are struggling with a few things too and it's just not me, and it's quite normal for everything to not go smoothly and know other brides are stressing and it's not just me.
Even though I am still overwhelemed, I am definitely feeling in a better place and I'd like to thank all your girls. I had my mini melt down and vented on here (such a huge relief to get it all off my chest) and I would like to thank all of you for you kind words of support. I still feel like there are a million things to do, and even though i'm stressed I have a better attitude ..... one at a time!
This evening we did get my wedding band!! It's here at my house and I am dying to look at what Mike got engraved inside, but am resisting the urge. He doesn't know what I got engraved on his so think it's only fair I don't peak, but I am suspecting it will be our initials and date. Think I may have mentioned it on here before but not sure, on Mike's I had our wedding date and "I Love You" in Irish engraved, I really wanted something gaelic in all of this!
Regarding time, I feel your pain, normal life is hectic as it is, but between ramping up gym sessions, tanning, wedding stuff, etc, ..... I have no time to sleep!! We fly Sunday morning, and the day before I have leg and eyebrow wax in morning, then haircut and highlights, then mani/pedi, so that's Saturday gone. Monday I have dentist and a few other appointments. Friday is the legal wedding. So only a few days in between to get all wrapped up. Why didn't we elope, LOL!!!!
I'm sorry to hear people are sick, it's going around so bad, but be glad you have it now and not closer to your wedding date. It would suck flying with that. I agree with the other girls though, rest up now for a day or two and then get back into superwoman mode.
We fly in exactly one week and 10 hours!! Our flight is at 7am which means we have to hit the road at 4am, and all I can say is AMEN that the clocks in the US change next saturday night so it's really 5am and not 4am. That extra hour will make a huge diff!
Oohhhh, I love the idea of doing a one year BD shoot!! Definitely thinking back there are so many other poses I would have loved to try so it would be fun to do again now after trying it once!

I am totally in the same boat - I am not excited AT ALL and I wish I were. My to do list for each day is about 8 items long (plus work, working out, tanning). I am MAJOR pms'ing (I am so bitchy I could probably punch a kitten today), there's construction going on 7 days a week in our building that sounds like jack hammers all day long, and Fi and I haven't been able to spend a weekend alone together in weeks.
Whoo! Thanks for letting me rant ladies!
