Wedding (Planning) Stress

Good morning and happy new year’s eve! 2009 was a great year but I am so excited for 2010! I will be posting my 2010 goals (not resolutions) soon.

Yesterday I met Bri and some of his co-workers for lunch at an Indian buffet. I’m not too sure how I feel about Indian food. It’s okay but doesn’t knock my socks off like Thai or Japanese food.

After lunch I went back to Bri’s office for a bit while he finished up some work. I started reading Persuasion by Jane Austen. Good stuff! My training schedule called for a four mile run but by the time we got back it was already dark out. Enter: the headlamp!
Yes, that is a headlamp. Super hot, right? Truth be told it wasn’t that bright. I think I needed to place it a little lower on my head. Bri brought along a flashlight so we were fine. When we first went outside we could see our breath. I remember saying “Who AM I? We are running outside, in the cold and dark, with a headlamp on my head!” I love it though.

The four miles were great (and another PDR! Every “long” run from here on out will be a PDR until the 14k), aside from a few pine cones that got in the way. It was chilly but I warmed up quickly with all of my gear. Also, how could I really complain that the temps were in the 30s with the frigid cold going on in upstate NY?

Bri and I are getting married in less than three months. Holy! I haven’t really talked about wedding planning on here because timing wise, everything had fallen into a lull. I had heard that this is pretty common; once you get the big things out of the way, it doesn’t really get crazy again until right before the wedding. Well, the other night I got to thinking about everything left that I had to do and couldn’t fall asleep. It got to a point where I had to get up and write everything down so that I could ease my mind. Enter:

My midnight list of things that I need to do for the wedding. As I was writing things out, things just kept popping into my head. Ummm, I have a lot to do! Writing it out made me feel better, but I am a little overwhelmed.

For those of you that are planning/have planned a wedding, how were the last three months for you? I have all of the big things done- it’s the little things that stress me out (pick out a cake topper? Contact the organist?)…eep!

For everyone- if you have a hard time falling asleep because your to-do list keeps running through your head, do you get up and write it down?

Have a great New Year’s eve and don’t forget to enter my Sigg Om water bottle giveaway!
