Wedding Week: Monday



Wedding Week: Sunday





T Minus 7 Days: Friday

The wedding is one week away. I only slept for four and a half hours last night. Jessica arrive at our apartment around 1am. Lulu also came by to stay over. There was a lot going on.

In between work and Jessica, I cleaned the floors and put new sheets on the beds and straightened up both of the guest rooms. Gavin and I also installed an air conditioner in one of the rooms so now we have one in the living room and guest room. Looking forward to getting ours in the bedroom too but that requires calling the landlord because we need a piece of wood and, right now, calling people like the caterer and DJ take priority.

I haven’t gotten a firm answer from Gavin on whether or not we will be taking a full week off after the wedding or just a long weekend and saving the vacation days for a longer trip in July, September or even December. So I took half the week off (Wed-Fri), since he really wants to spend time with his family at their new lake house on the Fourth of July. As for Monday and Tuesday, I’ve been just skirting the issue at work an being really vague about my availability. (I know, super responsible.)

Finally, our wedding favors arrived. Gavin put them together last night in between processing images from his 2-day shoot this week.


We still have no rings in hand but we should have them shortly. Gavin’s was shipped this week. Mine is with my mom. I just have to go get it. Jessica’s bridesmaid dress is also at my parents’ house. Minor details.

I’m so tired. My hair trial (part II) is happening tonight instead of last night. Once that’s over, I may just crash. There is a lot going on this Saturday. I need to sleep. Now I’m no longer a crazy person but a full-fledged zombie. (And no one wants to marry a zombie.)

Madison was super hot and panting so I gave her a cold shower s she wouldn’t overheat. She spent the next half hour drying herself off. Not sure if I helped her if you think in terms of energy expended in the level of effort post-shower.


I’m wearing Jessica’s shoes to work today. I might borrow them for the wedding actually. They’re quite nice. They’re also a turquoise-looking shade of blue.

I am so happy it’s Friday.
