did I mention I'm sort of freaking out?

Here I am, trying to study for finals, trying to figure out when I am going to move (I'm kicked out on Thursday), and all I can think about is I am getting married in 11 days. Freaky, right? I have had an anxious stomach for the past 3 days in a row that just won't go away. On the bright side it makes the "pre-wedding diet" much easier to follow, but on the not-so-bright side, I feel constantly nauseated! I can't concentrate on studying for my finals (luckily one of them is for my marriage and family class, so the subject matter at least seems applicable) and I keep remembering all of the little things that need to be done within the next 11 days.


So, I am trying to remember to breathe and remember what is most important! It doesn't matter that much that I can't find shoes that are teal or raspberry pink, it doesn't matter that we don't have a freezer to put the ice-cream in for the reception, etc - what matters is that in 11 days I get to marry Brian! Yay! And then all of this craziness will melt away (soon to be replaced by newlywed craziness, no doubt)!

I am grateful for friends and family that are helping out along the way. Brian is also being understanding and just holds my hand and tells me that everything will be "just great." And you know what? I think he's right!

The invitation :) - the colors look a bit weird on this screen, but I think the invites turned out cute!


  1. Girl, don't worry. It's normal to freak out. I can't imagine planning a wedding during finals...you are my new hero.

    And you certainly can't mention a shoe crisis and not expect me to immediately search the internet cosmos. Here are a few (I don't really know what raspberry pink is, so I guessed, and this is Lynne, btw)...










  2. Congratulations Rachael!!! I know you'll have a great wedding! (I'm sure Meggie will tell me all about it!

  3. Awwww, Rachael, I can totally empathize with all the stress you're feeling! I'm sure your wedding day will be just lovely, and all the work you put into planning will be worth it. I'm excited to see you next week! And, I'd recommend checking out zappos.com for shoes, if you haven't already. They offer free shipping both ways...

  4. Thanks guys!! Thanks for all of the wonderful shoe suggestions - I will look at them all :)

    Just 10 more days... I can't wait!
