We are four months out from the wedding and save the dates have finally been sent out in the mail. Stamping them and putting them in the mailbox made everything seem beyond real. We are really getting married soon and I am going to be someone’s wife?! I swear I still feel like I’m 20 years old and I’m not at this point in life yet. But then I see a 20 year old and realize oh yes, I am definitely not there anymore!
Although, last weekend I woke up a 29 year old and said to everyone, “shouldn’t I be mature by now???”. I am about to walk down the aisle but still feel the need to fist pump while making up my own rap songs on a nightly basis. My only saving grace is Pat’s constant maturity to keep me in check from accidentally flailing my arms into lamps and fine china every day. I guess that’s why I chose to marry him!
So far, the wedding planning process has been both nerve-racking and so much fun. Luckily, we have awesome people in our wedding party who are doing more for us than I’ve ever expected. Speaking of which, we are now down to just 3 weeks until my cruise with my bridal party and we are way too excited! Some of us went out for my birthday on Saturday night and we got to practice our moves and drinking fruity drink skills for the Bahamas.
Here I am on the left, one of my bridesmaid’s Heather in the middle and my maid of honor Kelly on the right. It was around this point in the night when we realized that we are in fact getting older because we were complaining the music was too loud…
