42 minutes

Yah, it's been awhile. I've been busy. Ya know, running marathons (okay, one), buying a new house, planning a wedding - it takes its toll on a girl!

So here's the sitch - in 42 minutes it's my wedding day.
Holy effing Christ. (apologies to the holies)

I kind of can't believe it's here already. When I read back over the early days and remember all of the things that I was SO adamant about, I realize that all of those things have gone down the shitter.
My dress - I wanted long sleeves, lace with an old-school vibe. When the wedding is done I'll show you a pic, but suffice it to say, it ain't any of that.
Something old - was really hoping to wear a mink that belonged to my grandmother. Apparently it was destroyed in a freak flood several years ago and I had no idea. Zoinks.
Champagne - I know this is weird, but I've always had this image of drinking champagne from those old-timey wide champagne glasses. Like the kind that people use in champagne towers? Ya know? Well anyway, it's not happening.

All things being considered though - NONE of this matters. Because you know what hasn't changed? The fact that I'm marrying probably the most wonderful man that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing (it's okay to say that, my Dad doesn't read this).  So I could wake up tomorrow drinking swill from a paper cup, wearing a hideous marshmallow dress and all would be right with the world. 

But for serious - my dress is stinking gorgeous.
