I have been having a great summer! This will be my last posting until after my wedding. I can't believe I am getting married next weekend already! Everything is coming together. My to-do list is dwindling day by day. Last weekend I went to Green Bay with a good friend and scored a bunch of stuff I needed. Yesterday my Mom and I went to Iron Mountain to pick up my wedding dress just to find out we couldn't pick it up because it hasn't been pressed yet. It was frustrating because we even called to make sure it would be ready a few days beforehand and that was the sole purpose of our trip over that way. So now tomorrow is the day that I can pick it up! I am so excited to just have it in the same town as me lol.
I am going to make sure I go for a walk everyday now until the wedding so I feel good mind & body. I think it will also be good for me to get out at least once a day to clear my head because it has been on overload! I have been going for walks but not as often as I would like to. Now I am making it a daily priority otherwise I will have the worst case of BRIDEZILLA you have ever seen!
A cool thing I thought I'd share is pictured below. I read on the internet that people have sent wedding invitations to The White House, Mickey Mouse, etc. We had a few extra invites so I thought we'd try it and we are amazed at the responses! So far we have heard back from 4 of the 6 we sent out. So if any of you are getting married out there, it is something cool to do if you have extra invitations! I thought it was very nice that the envelope from the White House was handwritten and the signatures themselves seem to be REAL! You can see the ink bleed from a pen and I have compared ours to other responses online and none are written in the exact same spot. Pretty cool if you ask me! Real signatures or not; I don't care. The awesome factor is still the same.
The next time I will post I will no longer be Marilyn Ziebell! Here is to hoping I will not have a hard time getting used to writing Marilyn Manfrom! <3
