Wedding photo anticipation

I'm completely dreading getting our professional photos back. Oh, sure I tell everyone that asks that I am dying to see them, but the truth is I am terrified of just exactly how disappointed I am going to be...
My expectations have been extremely high for our wedding photos since my nightmarish search began. There were soooo many photos on my "must shoot list" that were not taken at our wedding - even more disappointing there was only one shot of Andy and I on the beach together, facing the camera so I know there were no "casually walking hand-in-hand photos," silhouette portraits, or even less importantly our iPhone photo.
The photographers emailed me back today, they will be uploading our slide show Saturday morning. Unfortunately this allows little time
for troubleshooting the download/DVD burning process and even less time for me to accept there's photos that were taken. I guess the only thing I can do is prepare myself to be disappointed so if the photos turn out to decent it will be a nice surprise.

Lazy Lady/Bad Blogging Bride

I have been riding high on the wedding wave for over a week now. It. was. amazing. Sorry for not posting any wedding/honeymoon recaps yet!

However, now that I'm back in the Land of Lincoln I just can't seem to get motivated to do anything. There are huge piles of both clean and dirty laundry all over the house, gifts that arrived while we were gone and a bucket of mail to sort. (It doesn't help that my daring husband decided to unpack his two suitcases in the middle of the dining room.) I can't wait to see the photos we took, but alas they're trapped in my camera and I don't have the motivation to search for the cable needed to unleash them.

As excited as I am for The Wedding: Part Deux, I don't want it to all be over (at least that's the most logical reason I can come up with for missing deadlines and procrastinating). I have 23 remaining tasks to complete by Friday... but watching 3 episodes of Mad Men while curled up on the couch with the boys just seemed so much more appealing last night.

Tonight I MUST get some shit done. For reals... Maybe a Grande Pumpkin Spice Espresso after work?? Suggestions?

This is it!

This will be last post as a single lady (does the Beyoncé - Single Ladies dance move) but don't fret, I'm leaving you with daily scheduled posts.

Thanks for reading along with all of the wedding planning ups and downs and leaving supportive comments. I know it's cliché, but I can't believe our wedding day is finally here. After all of the projects and planning, I'm looking forward to marrying my best friend and beginning this new journey together the most (the 80º temps will be a bonus).

My to do list has dwindled, the wedding website is updated, and the DIY projects are nearly done - I just have to find a unique guestbook for the small group of wedding guests. We're not bringing our computers, but I will have my new iphone *squeal* should you need to contact me!

Remember: love is all you need,
Ms. Rachel

Great Zeus' Beard!

Updated wedding Weather forecast:
At least the evening will be delightful. I liked the on-the-fence 30% chance of rain better.

Cloudy with a chance of $&*%balls

Today The Weather Channel wedding planner I mentioned was updated:

Coupled with this:
It's going to be a close call weather ;) or not the wedding is held outside.
I realize the weather can change dramatically in week, so I'm not too worried. Also, the South has typical afternoon showers and then clears up quickly.

Please keep your fingers crossed!

thank you for the birthday wishes!

Yesterday was a lovely day.


Thank you all for the cards, texts, and facebook messages!
