Wedding time approaches

Yall, I am a bad blogger.... I feel like I'm making this apology a lot lately, but I think this year I really did bite off more than I could chew.... When last we spoke, I was up to my eyeballs in Christmas and fixing coats for perfect strangers... oh, and planning a completely DIY wedding.... minor undertaking, right?
Well the coat eventually did get finished and Christmas came and went. And as I write this my wedding is... wait for it.... less than two weeks away!!! Anyone have a paper bag I can breath into??
Oh yeah, also in there, a few of my friends have gotten pregnant and I've committed myself to knitting some cuteness for the babies....
But first, a wedding update. The dress is finished (thank god for small favors)! I'm pretty well into the decorations and my mom will be here Thursday to rescue me from the pile of tulle and ribbon I'll probably be buried under by then.
A few projects have already been given the heave-ho (that adorable guestbook quilt idea? yeah, not happening....) And at this point, I'm somehow developing a zen outlook of "if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen," to the point where I'm even OK with it if the hubs-to-be and I can't manage to pick a song for our first dance. (BTW, we're still open to suggestions on that one.)
Anyway, This is my solemn promise that as soon as this wedding madness is over, you'll have my full, mostly undivided attention back. We can spend the summer discussing recipes, knitting (I'll still be working on the cuteness!), gardening, or whatever your little hearts desire, I promise!
Of course, that's all after some gratuitous wedding photos :)
