This Weeks Magic Number is: SEVEN

Seven more Mondays!!!! Seven Mondays from today, I will wake up and say….”Oh my gosh, I don’t have any more Mondays!”

We leave in 54 days ~ Spend the entire day with all of my kiddo’s, Brian’s sister flying in from Oklahoma and her friend flying in from North Carolina, in beautiful San Diego and a wonderful night at an awesome hotel overlooking the marina. Oh, and two very good friends of ours as well!!!

We sail in 56 days ~ with close to 40 of our close friends and family members on board the Carnival Elation! Woo Hoo!!

We’ll be on the beach in 58 days ~ exchanging marriage vows!!

I can’t begin to tell you how everything is slowly but surely coming together. It’s exciting to me that Brian and I are actually sitting down and ‘talking’ about wedding related issues! We’ve checked a number of things off of our list, and lists of lists, over the past month or so, and can I just say that it feels WONDERFUL!!!

We’ve accomplished:

  • Table seating arrangements;

  • I finished hemming my dress (squee!!!)

  • Got the Welcome Bag tags; (thanks to an awesome friend)

  • Got my shoes for the ceremony;

  • Got another cocktail dress for the cruise;

  • Got Brian’s suit for the Formal Dinner on the cruise;

  • Ordered the individual wedding cakes for each table;

And I know there’s a few more things as well!

This week I intend on checking off even more and will concentrate on our May Reception (which is 3 weeks after we return from the cruise). Here’s a short list of what I want to have done this week:

  • Reserve/Rent the tables and chairs;

  • Get quote from the lady who will be doing the Filipino food;

  • Get menu selection narrowed down;

  • Purchase more Apothecary Jars for the “Candy Bar”

  • Finalize the food menu for my upcoming Shower with the Hostess;

  • Have Brian’s Suit and both of my wedding dresses dry cleaned, steamed and pressed

  • Complete Must-Take Photo list for photographer;

  • Compile Play-List for DJ for reception;

And, of course, I will add more to it as the days go by! :)

I hope everyone has a Happy Monday!


  1. You are doing great. You are so organized! I need your organization skills about now. I have so much to do, but no direction! AHHHH! Luckily I have a few more Monday's than you! 20 Mondays to be exact :)

    I cant wait for your shower..woohoo!

  2. I can't wait for my shower either so we can finally see each other again!!! It's not like we live hundreds of miles apart!!! I miss the old days when we used to party hearty every weekend!!! :)
