You know how when you got engaged like 15 months forever ago, and you felt like you had all the time in the world?  And then suddenly you check your registry--not to stalk it or anything--and you see that there are only 100 days left until your wedding?

You know, right?  Because it can't just be me.


So here I am going over the list of things to do and I'm noticing that what should a pretty short and straightforward list is really long and contains lots and lots of maybes.  Then I notice that I feel my hands start shaking and my chest gets a little tight and what the heck?  I don't even have a groom right now!  How could we be only 100 days away from our wedding?

I'm trying to relax (because you know, Frankie says. Did anyone else have one of those shirts?) and think of the good things.  The part where we are married.  The part when we celebrate no matter if I finish my table runners or not.  The part where he comes home and I can give him the biggest hug ever.  Those parts.  

And then I'm calm(ish).  But I'd be lying if I didn't say that I wish I could press fast forward right now to get to the good stuff.  

Is the countdown getting to you yet?  Do you wish you could just already get it over with sometimes?


  1. It was all slow and steady until we reached the 100 day mark. Now it seems like time is in hyperdrive!! If I stop to think about it, I get sick to my stomach. Not because of the marriage, of course, but because of all the projects on my self-imposed to-do list. Deep breath.

  2. This sounds sick and I'm sure I'm going to hate myself later for saying this, but I WISH I had a legit countdown right now. We still have over a year, and I'm telling myself to wait to do a lot of things till we're closer. My dress has been sitting in the bridal shop for 6 months now because I refuse to go try it on until we're at least a year out. I really just want it to get here and to be MARRIED already!

    So.. I sort of get it. Constantly feeling like there's so much time but then not enough.

  3. Oh my goodness yes!
    Once we hit 6 months I started to panic, and then we hit the 5 months point and I realized that I had done nothing to help the panicing, so I started to panic even more haha.
