And the real countdown begins...

It is my last day here at work as a "single" gal...and I get off early today!! I'll be off the rest of this week and all of next - when I'll be in sunny Cabo San Lucas!!

*both photos from tripadvisor.com of the hotel we'll be staying at!!

I think I'm just as excited to take some time off of work and get out of town as I am to get married!! At this point though, there's so much "little" stuff going on that it's starting to drive me crazy. So a vacation will be nice.
Last night was a big showdown over the timeline for the day. When to cut the cake, when to dance with our parents, when to give the toasts.... I actually don't care as much about this as Chris does - yet I am in the middle of it trying to make sense of it all. Add to that, different people have different wants and things they want to do that they only tell you AFTER you've decided on a plan of action. Trying to make as many people as happy as I can and not hurt any feelings is difficult and stressful. Can it just be Saturday yet??

Last night we also got our programs printed off, and now we just need to assemble them. That will be tomorrow. I still need to get my mani/pedi at some point, go do the Mystic tan on Friday, color my hair. And we need to pick up the alcohol and start to chill it, pick up my dress (and hope it still fits), pick up some chocolate chip cookies for the reception, and just make sure we have everything that we really "need". On the plus side - we have the license, we have the rings, and we have a place - so all is good there. ;-)

I know I'll still be updating this week with any crazy business going on, but next week I'll be in beautiful Mexico drinking loads of tequila!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

It's always much more fun to focus on the honeymoon than think about all those evil little details the week before.

But I'm sure you'll have a rockin' wedding. Good luck with the evil week leadup.

I was more excited to be done and married than by the wedding anymore. It sounds like you've got a lot to do. Take a deep breath!

Oh my word Rachel, it's so close now. I feel exactly the way you do... Tired of petty details and sooo ready for that honeymoon!
Best of luck for the final leg, remember to breathe! And that many many millions of girls do this every year and live to tell the tale. I'm right beyond you, honey, literally. xxx

Oh how jealous I am looking at those pics...and remember the many many hours I spent at the pool in the second pic!!! I'm not sure if you'll hang out more there are at the Santa Fe, but there at the RUI Palance, there's two pools, the "fun pool" and the "relaxing pool" - it took us like three days to figure that out!
