A little bit sentimenal…

It’s been a busy week or so and I’ve got another one coming up.  Last weekend we gave a baby shower for my cousin and had a great time.  She was so appreciative.  The baby is coming any day now, and I really hope he’ll arrive soon so I can go see him when I am off next Monday!  We used my grandmother’s punch bowl- which is 50+ years old.  I love the punch bowl- the fact that it has survived so many years and that it belonged to my grandmother (who was killed when my mother was about 3).  And we’ve used it for showers for her great-grandchildren and will use it for my bridal showers. 

I’m also feeling a little sentimental because Tuesday would have been my Papa’s 78th birthday.   October will be 6 years since he died, and sometimes, like this week it seems only yesterday.  This week the memorial candles I ordered in honor of our grandparents arrived, appropriately, on Papa’s birthday.  I was hosing off our back porch this morning and thinking how he loved to sit out there when he came to visit and how he would love the newly expanded porch. 

I took this picture about a year before he died and it is one of my favorite pictures of him. 
Happy Birthday Papa!!

I picked them up on Friday after work.  I am so excited about them.  I had made a change from my original invite on the font to the current one.  People, I am really and truly getting married!  I’ve got 175 invites to prove it!

4 months and counting…the number of times I am going to throw up thinking about it.

Today marks exactly 4 months until my wedding day.  TheKnot even sent me a reminder email (as if I didn’t know!)  And then the girls who share my date posted about it.  Someone mentioned 18 weeks.  Which for some reason sounds so much closer than 4 months.  Don’t ask me why, it just does. 

Excuse me I’ve got to run to the bathroom, so I can throw up. 

And earlier today I was doing so well, because we finally (finally!) got our honeymoon settled today.  I have been campaigning for Hawaii since, well since we found out we had CP’s family timeshare and could go to Hawaii (about a month into wedding planning).  CP has resisted me much of this time, until recently when I finally told him:
” I don’t care anymore.  I am tired of looking at this with you. Just book it.  These are my requirements:”
1. One week in Hawaii.
2. It cannot require that we leave the morning after the wedding.  It cannot require us traveling all day on Sunday to get to an airport to leave on Monday. 

I ask you, what is SO hard about this?  So, after much gnashing of teeth, hemming and hawing, and a whole lot of luck (when we first tried to book, there were no timeshares available!)

WE ARE GOING TO HAWAII!! 

We leave the Friday after our wedding for a week at the Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club.  Originally, we had picked a resort that we could check into on Saturday, but when he called to book, the Marriott was available on Friday.  My very smart CP snapped it right up.   I cannot wait, and the thought of HAWAII might be what gets me through all the planning for the next 4 months. Or 18 weeks. 

OMG.  Better run to the bathroom.
