It seems like it has been forever since I was posting on a regular basis, but hopefully that will change soon. The wedding is over (whew) and the home repairs are almost finished. I am excited that my free time can now be spent on things I really enjoy instead of picking out tile, paint, shower liners, cake flavors, wedding favors or table cloths. blech.
Frankly, I really thought the wedding stuff was going to be much easier because I really didn't care about the details. Seriously, my ideal wedding was one where I would check the box next to the wedding I wanted and then show up at the previously agreed upon time. It didn't matter to me what the colors were, what the bridal party wore, what the centerpieces or tables looked like or what we ate. (I am not one of those girls who planned out their wedding in elementary school.) As it turned out, my ambivalence made everything worse. Someone had to make those decisions and people that work in the wedding industry don't think it is funny when you tell them that your wedding colors are clear and see-through.
Oh well. Everything turned out great in the end. I got exactly what I wanted, which was for everyone to have a really, really good time.
