Oh, hello there! Long time, no see!
We did this cah-razy thing and went on vacation. Some people might consider it “a weekend” but I say if you leave early Friday and don’t come back till mid-day Monday, you leave the computer at home and sleep a lot, it probably counts as vacation. Plus I want to pretend I’m all luxurious and can do things like take vacation. So we went up to camp, spent some time with neighbors, spent some time with my mom and brother, slept, and read books. And napped. Did I mention we slept? I was apparently suffering greatly from being awake for too long, but don’t worry! Problem solved!
I guess while I was busy sleeping, wedding things began to happen. One, if you read this on my actual blog – isn’t the new header pretty? – take a peek over at that lovely little countdown clock on the right. I thought it was really cute and that I was being funny back when it said 100+ days and it said, “Uh, plenty of time.” Haha, oh Bird, you so funny.
Anyway, we are now in the window of time that constitutes as close to a month and half away as two months away, and we should probably do things like mail our invitations. All one of them. Hahaha more funny jokes!
Two, we are in the under-sixty-day window of time, which means we could apply for our marriage license any time now! I have no idea if this is actually exciting or just theoretically exciting. Either way, our town hall is pretty and fun to visit, so that in itself is exciting.
Three, Turtle got her wedding ring! And oh, it is pretty. Mine is still being made… story coming someday, if you’re lucky.
Four, we have an invitation! A friend is designing them for us, and once they’ve been sent out and people can see them, I will tell you about their glory, their struggles, and our debate over what texture the belly band should be.
Oh Bird, there you go again. Hilarious.
AND THEN! Guys, I’m up to number five here. Look at all this wedding stuff I haven’t been blogging about! Lots! Five – we had our dress fitting yesterday. And it was pretty great. A whole post in itself.
So that’s what has been happening. I have loved my computer vacation, but I hope someone missed me (yes? was it you?) because that would make me feel special. I have not enjoyed being overwhelmed by catching up on blogs since I got back, but it turns out that the world doesn’t end if you click “mark all as read” and move on. A tinge of guilt for a portion of a second, but then you’re fine! Moving on to the next big thing.
I’m sure I have exciting things to say soon, especially about dress fittings and invitations (did I mention I’m in love with the one invitation we have? I am. In love.). In the meantime, how are you doing? What did you do this weekend? What was the best not-really-a-vacation-vacation you have taken?
