I am totally freaking out now! My friend was supposed to play the piano during the ceremony (I have a degree in opera performance, and he was my accompanist all through college).  Then I called him a few days ago to send him the music...and he responds with " I don't know what you're talking about...I am going away the whole summer"  Stupid prick...I'm pissed...but it's all going to work out anyway.

My voice teacher is playing for me...and she's terrific.

I woke up this morning after a honeymoon nightmare, and decided that that is it, I don't want to get married anymore! LOL!

My nightmare was that he couldnt go on the honeymoon with me because of work, and that my cousin, parents, aunt and grandparents all went with me to upstate NY for a honeymoon.  I couldn't find anyone, and I was pissed because I was on my honeymoon practically alone.  It was weird.  In reality, we are going to Puerto Rico...not upstate NY...so weird.

Are you ladies freaking out too....

Yep! most definitely!!! I feel like I haven't gotten anything done, I have a HUGE long list of things to do, and I don't know where to start!!!!


A couple of weeks ago it stormed really bad here, and it hailed and sleeted. So that night I had a nightmare that it happened on my wedding day. :( And I was so dissappointed that we couldn't take outside pictures that I called the whole thing off!!!! Weird!!!!!

I'm glad everything worked out for you with your voice teacher. Good musicians are sometimes hard to come by!!!

They say that when it rains, it's good luck...so don't worry if it rains!!!

I woke up this morning so freaked out, I looked over at Phill (FH) and told him that I couldn't go through with it....I was like, "I CANT IM SO NERVOUS!"

I spoke with my dad this mornign and told him how I was freaking out, and he just started laughing at me!!!

I don't doubt us, I am just nervous.  Which my dad told me is TOTALLY normal....GOOD!

I am going to be putting a little baggy filled with Hershey's Hugs, Kisses and Dove promises with a note that says "A marriage of bliss starts with a hug, promise and a kiss".

Then I will have bottled water in each one, some metro maps (I'm in DC), some museum information, and a little box of cereal....I think that's it.

What about you guys?

Someone actually gave me this idea last week, and I really liked it, I just have to talk it over with FH. We're putting some brochures of area parks adn restaurants and things, but most of our relatives are only coming from Friday to Sunday. But the idea is - having a "taste of Wisconsin" theme. So having Wisconsin recipies in the bag, root beer from our local beer brewery, dried cranberries, jelly from a local cheese facory, potato chips, chocolate from another nearby store, and postcards of Lambeau Field, etc. I'll probably tweak it a little, but I thought it was a neat idea, especially because most of our family have never visited us here, and has never been to the state.
