About time (WR)

TK tells me:




and I finally have a bridal party.  Something stupid happened and, since I'm a waffler who overthinks and re-overthinks everything, I decided not to send out those painted wooden initials I made (I'll still give those to the girls, just at a later time).

Finally, yesterday afternoon, I decided I really had to get my sh*t together and I made this:




(I wonder if it'll be big enough to see when you click it.  If not, I'll upload it to a host)

and emailed it to everyone, then sat at my computer with my heart pounding waiting for responses.

Anyway, everyone accepted and they're really excited.  FSIL #1 bought her dress already, and FSIL #2 called me in tears this morning to tell me how happy she is.  MOH already knew she was involved, but liked getting the official invitation, and other BM has been emailing me questions (about dresses, bachelorette plans, etc) all day.  The enthusiasm makes me really happy; I genuinely wasn't expecting it.

And that's all for this pointless post.

  • Aww YAY! It feels so good when your BMs keep your enthusiasm alive... trust me when I say mine really saved my enthusiasm when I was having a hard week here and there.

    Yeah, it's already kind of reignited my enthusiasm.  Until yesterday afternoon I was feeling more stressed and anxious than excited.
  • I love it! How cute!

    Anniversary

  • Yaya!  That is great Elle.  I am still waiting for mine to show up in my email!

  • Yay Elle! I really like the photo strip (and I squinted to read it before I saw you posted a larger one at the end)!! 

    I'm so glad they're hyping you up again. Bridesmaids are the perfect Rosie to your Sophia Grace!

  • Yay!  Finally you're getting your act together.  :-p Love the idea, and I am sure glad to hear that your BMs enthusiasm is making your feel good.  Like Raven I'm still waiting for my letter, unless you're bringing it to Maui as a wedding gift, in that case I can wait.

    Naturally.

    Also, just fair warning:  after I have to change out of my wedding dress because it gets doused with champagne and torn during our wrestling match, I intend to put on a coconut bra and grass skirt.

  • Super cute, Elle! I'm so excited for all you girls getting close to your dates. . . I remember my 100 day mark (sorta). It all goes by so fast - don't forget to take a minute every now and then to file away in your memory bank :) (I may be feeling nostalgic and a little KUI, sorry for that).
