I just put an old lady's maxi pad through the wash and all I can think is this is my life...

One month to go...

Yikes! Can anyone believe that my wedding is a month from tomorrow? I certainly can't! I am so beyond excited to marry the love of my life - but also a tad bit nervous that all the wedding pieces won't fall together in time. For instance, I still don't know what i'll be wearing. Yeah, that is kind of a big deal. I'm juggling a few ideas, hoping something will come through, fit me, and have that WOW factor I've been looking for. But alas, I'm not so sure. Also, there are so many last minute things to concern myself with. Like...

Where will I stay the night before the wedding?
Will it rain on our wedding day? And if so, how will we fit everyone into the cottage for the ceremony?
How will I get everything to the location in time to set up the morning of the big day?
Will Joseph's ring arrive in time?

But honestly, I know these are all minor details. I've said from the beginning that all I want is to marry Turkey Butt and have one good photo to show for the whole event. I know this will happen rain or shine, pretty white dress or not.

Here are a few of the smaller things I've been working on to ease my nothing-will-be-done-for-my-wedding tension:

(to be framed on our candy/dessert table)

(to go on our guestbook table - p.s. click the link if you've forgotten what our guestbook is like)

(our wedding program - it's being printed out on 4x6 photo paper and they'll be passed out prior to the ceremony)

(this was just for fun. i'm printing it on 8x10 photo paper and framing it to put on our wall with our wedding photos)

Anyway, this is my life!

Wedding Reading

I'm reading the lyrics from the song "It's Only Time" by The Magnetic Fields to Turkey Butt during our wedding ceremony. If I'm not crying before this point, I think I will be by the time I make it through this:

Why would I stop loving you a hundred years from now?

It's only time.

It's only time.

What could stop this beating heart once it made a vow?

It's only time.

It's only time.

If rain won't change your mind, let it fall,

The rain won't change my heart at all.

Lock this chain around my hand. Throw away the key.

It's only time.

It's only time.

Years, falling like grains of sand, mean nothing to me.

It's only time.

It's only time.

If snow won't change your mind, let it fall.

The snow won't change my heart, not at all.

(I'll walk your lands,)

I'll walk your lands,

(and swim your sea,)

And swim your sea.

Marry me.

Marry me.

(And in your hands,)

And in your hands,

(I will be free,)

I will be free.

Marry me.

Marry me.

Why would I stop loving you a hundred years from now?

This is my life!

I'm Baaaack : )

Turkey Butt and I have finally caved in and gotten internet at our new place. Now I'm playing a frantic game of blog catch-up while Turkey Butt and Adora are in town buying boullion cubes (stew for supper, yum) and a smoothie for me! Just thought I'd take a short break from the lives of others to update everyone on the goings on here.

I am 31 weeks pregnant. Happy, healthy, well-loved and sporty a good sized bump of a belly! I promise to add photos soon. The baby is beautiful, at least that's what my OB-GYN said of her ultrasound! She is due October 29th and will be named Elodie Elizabeth (or Elodie Charlie Elizabeth - if my OB-GYN delivers the easy and painless labour that I've requested, haha).

Turkey Butt and I are still madly in love. More so every day! Even these crazy pregnancy mood swings and all the vomiting can't affect our love. You should see Turkey Butt reading Little Miss Elle a Mercer Mayer book before bed most nights! He's going to be such an amazing father and husband!

Speaking of husbands, can anyone believe that we're getting married a month from Thursday? I can hardly believe it myself. In the upcoming days I'll try to get caught up on updating everyone with more wedding details, like the reading I will do and the bouquets I have ordered for myself and my flower girl! It's all so very exciting and not stressful at all!!!!

Adora is still as cute as ever. Sadly we didn't end up getting the golden retriever puppy that we were promised (long story short - the breeder decided to keep her and didn't tell us) but it worked out well in the end anyway as Adora developped food allergies. Poor girl is allergic to either corn, wheat, soy or chicken (or some combo of all of the above) so we have to buy her specialty food made with lamb that costs an arm and a leg. It's doing wonders for her though. She's slimmed down really nicely and all her fur has grown back (she was pulling it out because of her allergies). Turkey Butt and I cannot wait to see how Adora and Little Miss Elle will grow together!!

Anyway, I should get back to my blog reading before my loves come home with treats! I'll hopefully be posting on here much more often in the future... Especially once I go on mat leave (ten more shifts to go)! As always, this is my life!
