Weekend Update...

First and foremost, it's exactly one week today until Stu and I tie the knot.

Yesterday was a short day at work, and I left at 1:15. Before going out to do some Christmas shopping, I figured I'd stop by home quickly to grab the mail. I walked in the door just as the mailman was leaving, and he looked at me and said, "215, right?" As soon as I said, "Yup, that's me", he pulled out a package.

I wasn't expecting a package, but I figured since we're getting married, maybe someone sent us a package. When I looked at the customs label and it said yarn, I was really confused. My first thought was, "is it getting that bad, did I buy yarn without realizing it?" I thought about it for a minute, and no, there was no way I bought yarn.

My next thought was, "maybe someone has sent me a bomb." No, that couldn't be it. I don't think I'm that important. Not important enough to be sent explosives anyway. I decided to open it, and the whole time I was really hoping that I wasn't more important than I thought.

Upon opening it I realized that I was important, just not in a bomb sending way.

Abigail from 1870 Pearl sent us a wedding present. It's two skeins of sock yarn.

Words cannot describe how shocked I am by her kindness.

I am very grateful and lucky that I have people like her in my life. We've never met, but I feel like I know her.

Thank you so much Abigail. I'll begin knitting socks for us as soon as the wedding's over.

As far as the wedding goes, it's getting closer. Almost everything has been taken care of so far. I have a 4 hour hair appointment today, which I'm not really looking forward to, but it has to be done.

At this point, all the necessities have been looked after, which is quite relieving.

Last weekend we bought a new bed. For the last 3 years, Stu's been sleeping on his super hard futon in the living room, and I've been sleeping on my "too short" full size bed in the bedroom. We finally got ourselves a king sized bed. We're going to get the frame today. So rest assured, I'll be swearing at Ikea furniture tomorrow. Ikea furniture hates me, and believe me, the feeling is mutual.

It'll all be worth it to have a real living room.

I'm feeling a little cramped right now, since neither of us have had time to clean the house. How do two people create this much clutter. Ugh.

Also, my old bed is lining our already small hallway. We're not really sure what to do with it yet. I think my parents want it back, so eventually it'll end up at their place.

Today's to do list--
  1. Gill's B-Day---Take for coffee.
  2. Acquire bed frame.
  3. Pick up tuxes.
  4. 4 hours of hair.
  5. Pick up veil from parents' house.
  6. Dinner with parents.
  7. Finally decide whether or not I'll wear a tiara.
  8. Wrap Christmas & B-Day presents.
Yeah, we'll see what actually gets done.
