Have you ever wondered how you can tell a writer from everyone else?
Take it from a writer we are a bit of an odd breed. When I experience things I can’t wait until I have to opportunity to write about them, and I’m talking about all sorts of things.
If you look back I have written about several things that I experienced…
There was my experience with my first time fishing.
I took you into the scary place that is the woman’s mind.
I’ve talked about girls and guns.
I’ve even tried to take you along on my hunting experiences with my words.
Writers want you to take a journey with us, but it’s not through pictures, or tweets, or whatever else is out there it is all through the written word.
Soooo… With that put out there I would like to continue down the path of sharing with you my march down the aisle.
Today marks 100 days until I become a Mrs…. 100 DAYS!!! THAT IS SO CRAZY!!! Around this time last year I was residing myself to the fact that I would be single until the day I die, and one year later I am planning and preparing to walk down the aisle.
Tomorrow starts the 100 day countdown. In 100 days the 36 Hours of Miracles will have come and gone. In 100 days Garth Brooks will have made his stop in Lubbock. In 100 days we will have been showered by friends and taken out for our last hoorah! But more importantly in 100 days I will get to call this amazing, blessing of a man my husband. In 100 days I will go from being Miss Raines to Mrs. Austin. So no matter what happens in the next 100 days one of my soon to be favorite milestones will happen… so if I seem a little scatter brained, just remember I have 100 days. Ha! ? #misstomrs #engaged #weddingplanning #bridetobe #becominganaustin #lovehim #weliketolaugh
We may look like were happy and I may make it seem like I am loving every minute, but ladies and gentlemen I’m not going to lie to you, this is one of the most stressful things I have done.
I by nature have a tendency to be a perfectionist, it’s a blessing and a curse. I am an employers dream, I can be my own worst night mare.
I have the big things covered. Like my dress… I have my dress.
I went and tried my wedding dress on again for my sister. With the new year and just 119 days until I go from being a miss to a Mrs, I didn't experience that overwhelming feeling. What I felt was total happiness, gratitude and excitement. Do I have a lot to do between now and then? Yes, but at the end of it all I will be marrying the man that made me understand why it has never worked with anyone else. #wedding #weddingplanning #thedress #isaidyes #isaidyestothedress #119days #becominganaustin
My location… Were getting married at his families ranch, which is just to perfect for us and our story.
I’ve got the honeymoon booked…
I’ve got my bridal party figured out, invitations ordered, registries taken care of, hair and makeup booked, minister booked…
Things that I still have to do? Well, it seems like that list just keeps growing… book florist, book baker, gather decor for ceremony and reception, file for passports, marriage license… You get the idea.
I use to think that people talking about the details that come up were crazy… about that.
I went to order direction cards the other day, the paper choices, ink colors, and fonts that were out there for me to choose from was daunting to say the least. I now understand how the details can make a person crazy. Just thinking about it makes my head swim.
So if you see me around and I look a little lost, frustrated, or anything in between just know that I have probably been overwhelmed by the wedding wave… and feel free to remind me that no matter what at the end of the day I will be marrying the man that I love.
