Wedding. On. The. Brain.

It's ridiculous.  I am obsessed.  I am consumed.  I have already spent or allocated my entire projected budget.  Not good.

I am thrilled to have a new project that completely fills my time, my energy, and my thoughts.  This is going to be the event of the summer.  Last weekend while in Idaho with my kids, we found a stunningly beautiful wedding dress and some very sassy bridesmaid dresses.  They are easily the best I have ever seen.  And so far, the bride and all the bridesmaids are loving them.  There is still one that hasn't tried hers yet but the response from the others has been very positive.

I toured the reception hall yesterday and signed the contract.  It is more beautiful than I had remembered.  Slowly, one by one, I am checking off my endless list of things to take care of.  I told Erica she is the Chairman of this wedding committee, while I will play the role of co-chairman.  But she is a state away, a full-time college student, and she has no money. 

Soooooo, I am not only the Mother of the Bride, I am also the honorary Maid of Honor (the one that does all the work)  AND the Wedding Planner (the one with all the creative license).

I may also be the decorator, the floral designer, the invitation maker, the cake baker...well, you get the idea.

It's going to be a great summer.

I just know it will be super amazing. As a future sister-in-law to the bride I would love, love, love to help in anyway. Let me know what I can do.

I'm so excited too!

Let me know if you need any help! I know I work during the days but I can sometimes work things out, I have evenings and weekends off.

I'll gladly help be a decorator or whatever area you need me. :-)
