I'm a little bit excited about July 14 if you can't tell.
With all the things going on, I was bound to learn something. And you know what that means--I'm bound to share it with the blog world. Because a girl who met her soon to be husband on a blog can't plan their wedding without some sort of blogging about it. Right? Right.
- There are approximately 7,391 ways to word invitations, RSVPs, and programs. Out of these 7,391 ways you have to choose 1. Good luck.
- When frog tape doesn't do what it's designed to and instead rips off all the painting you've already done (maybe this has happened. maybe it has not.) on your altar decor, well, then you have one solution left: Her name is Mom. My mom seriously is a genius. I was almost in tears last night as we just couldn't get the painting on the decor to work. I mean, it was bad. We had white paint all over blue paint which was chipping off. It was bad. What does my mom think up? Let's try press 'n seal. And wa-lah!! Y'all, it's magic. Patent pending.
- If you're in grad school and get engaged, you really can plan a wedding, write a 15 page literature review on religion and politics, give a 3 hour presentation on presidential elections from 1980-2008, and complete your final. Well, you may have to set back the wedding planning for a few weeks. But it can be done--where there's a will, there's a way.
- It's okay to take pictures of yourself in every possible engagement outfit and send them to your fiance so you match. If you have one like I do, he'll tell you you're not dressed up enough.
- It's also okay to take pictures of yourself to see if your ring is visible in day-to-day operations. Proof:

7. Sure, take a trip to your parents' house every single weekend of your life. They won't care, especially when you are about to move 600 miles away. AHHHHHH!!!!!!!

10. And for crying outloud go get yourself a manicure, a massage, a new dress, dinner out, a movie ticket, a dance show ticket, all of the above!! Oh, and of course, take a day off work to take your grandpa to an appointment (while there make sure to remind him your wedding is definitely on a Saturday and not a Tuesday or else he'll tell your entire kin you are getting married on Tuesday, July 24 in which all named kin will respond with, "That's odd. I have to work."). It's medicine for the mind. You will not be sorry. Oh...and catch up on that oil business. Because after the wedding is over, you will need a job.
