I’m pretty sure planning this wedding will always remain one of the top ten most stressful things I ever do in my life. I know I keep talking about it, and I’m frequently told not to stress and enjoy this time, but I can’t help it. When I think about something, it stays with me until it’s taken care of. This means that the stress comes in waves. This wave is almost over, and I will be able to relax for a little bit.
If you’ve ever met me, you already know that I’m very shy. Not just quiet-at-first shy, but almost paralyzed until you’ve spent a good amount of time with me shy. Particularly if you’re not in a one-on-one situation with me. It’s how I’ve been my entire life. Because of this, talking to people I don’t know is obviously difficult. Phone calls are hard. Phone calls to vendors are hard. I can do it, and I’ve done it, but it takes a lot of prepping in my mind for it.
Now, Tim is awesome and has fully participated in the planning process. He exclusively made the catering plans, he’s taken over calling the hotel who just won’t call me back, he made our save the dates and website, and he almost always has input. Without his support and involvement, I’m pretty sure we would have eloped.
The other day I was venting to Heather about wedding and life stress and she asked if I have a de-stressor like getting a mani/pedi, massage, or facial. And then I realized what I needed: a shopping trip to Ulta.
Remember how I said I’d drool over the Glinda palette from afar? Apparently, I lied.
Yeah, I splurged a little. I almost didn’t get it, but Tim was all “OMG, GET IT” and I don’t like being yelled at so I caved. I might have also done a little dance on the way to the car too. I never dreamed I’d be spending that much money on eye shadow, but… it’s just so pretty.
Yeah. I’m actually starting to run out of room in that vanity. I’ll have to find a place for some overflow.
After the Ulta trip, I felt much better.
Oh! I guess I might as well show y’all the save the dates since they’ve all gone out by now.
I love them.
