The Countdown Begins!

Colby and I are getting married this weekend!

All kinds of emotions are flowing through me right now.

I’m excited to finally marry Colby and become his wife. I’ve dreamed of this moment for so long, and it is finally here. I’m excited because of all my work that I have put into the wedding will come to an end, and I will get to relax and not worry about all of the tiny, minute details that only I will probably notice in the end.

I’m nervous because of all of my planning. Is is going to look right? Am I going to be able to get it all done in time? What will people think? Should I care what people think? Will I have time to get {insert} finished? What if it needs extra things? Can I go get it in time? This people is the crazy thoughts floating around right now. It’s insane!

Then, I’ve got this sickish feeling. That’s right. Not like sickish because I’m nervous. Oh no. It’s the real sickish feeling as in my throat is scratchy, and I’m possibly losing my voice. My words are limited today, as I’m trying my best to do everything in my power to prevent this.

Then, I start thinking about my to-do list. It’s not that bad. Not really. It could be worse. Most of it can’t be done until Thursday.

I think Thursday will make me feel better. The linens, tables, chairs, and flowers are all delivered. We can officially begin to set things up. Oh mercy! I need your prayers. I know it will be a very enjoyable day. I just don’t understand why we feel we need to do this. Why must we put ourselves through this? Ladies? Anyone know?

Charleston, I can’t wait to see your beautiful city! I’m SIX days away from seeing you. I’m packing my bags for you on Wednesday.

The updates will keep coming! It’s wedding week!


  1. I can't wait until Thursday either. Well, really I can't wait until Saturday. I'm excited about helping you get it all decorated and put together. See you soon!

  2. Congrats ahead of time!!! I know you're so excited. To answer one of your WILL NOT be worried about what anyone is thinking. you will be so overwhelmed that day and after the ceremony is over you're going to be focused on having a good time at the reception and thinking of your honeymoon. My advice is to eat, even though you won't be hungry. Trust me, you won't eat much at your reception bc you'll be talking to everyone, so eat while you're getting ready or right before the ceremony so that you're not sick-feeling. YAAAAY!!! I can't wait to see posts afterwards!
