A girl I work with asked how I was planning a wedding while dealing with the stress of work and I remembered the wedding is what has been keeping my head above water, keeping me from going into a deep depression and what I look forward to every single day. For a long time I wasn't thinking about it as much but now it's constantly on my mind.
I've picked our invitations and the menu is finalized (and it's delicious!)...but I will NOT be sharing those details with you. Sorry! But we need to keep a few surprises up my sleeve. I've also pretty much finalized my flowers, just making some minor tweaks. As you'll notice I'm switching a lot from I to WE. Basically, Jarrett signs off on things but really only cares about what food we eat, what music we listen to, and what we have for booze ;-)
Enough of my ramblings, time to go close that last deal. OR NOT! :(

So we get home and I went online to check and more stuff was bought! How exciting :) I probably shouldn't be admitting this, but I constantly check. I can't avoid it. And you can't tell me every bride doesn't do this.

But it got me thinking. What really changes?
- My name.... I will officially be Jessica Britt
- Our bank account, (going this weekend to get a joint account)
We already live together, we already stay in on a Friday night after a long day of work with a glass of wine and a movie and head to bed before midnight.
And don't get me wrong, I am SO excited to marry Jarrett...but I think it's funny all these people make a fuss, but I'm just excited, not nervous.

We went over every single detail of the wedding. Every...single...detail. Things I didn't even think about. (Will you have your own cake knife?, what type of guestbook?, card box or card basket?) We were exhausted...but it was nice, Jarrett and I were done in an hour and complemented for knowing a lot!

So per the advice of blogger extrordinare--Nikki "Mama" Ferrante (I almost wrote MUKAI!)...I'll be updating you on some wedding stuff here and there, with random tidbits of things that annoy me--people who can't wait to let everyone off of the train before they push their way on (more on that later).
So get ready, and i won't be afraid to tell you I told you so :-)

But it's all starting to come together. And now...I can't wait! It couldn't come fast enough. Luckily I have my shower in May to look forward to and a bachelorette party in July as checkpoints, ways to keep me hanging in there. And a good excuse to see all of my favorite people :)
