Of Birthdays and Weddings

I've been busy the past few days with birthday celebrations and surprises and the impending doom of my wedding planner checklist.

My birthday was actually yesterday, but I mostly celebrated it over the weekend. First, my lovely hubby-to-be, angel that he is, surprised me by giving me a nice day at the spa! It was the first I'd ever been to the spa. In fact, it was the first I'd ever even gotten a manicure or pedicure. Actually, all of it was a first for me! Haha...

Then he took me out for a nice lunch/dinner. I think it was the longest we'd ever been alone together since Adrianne was born. As much as I missed her like crazy, it was nice. It was liberating and so rejuvenating. I felt like I'd earned it too!

The next day, we had a nice, small, birthday get together for me with his family. I got to feel even more special! Michael's mother, the gourmet chef that she is, made me my favorite meal (fettuccine alfredo) and my favorite dessert (chocolate/coffee ice cream cake)! I got some beautiful cards and some very pretty maternity clothes as well.

Now, with the birthday festivities falling away, I come to realize that my wedding planner has been filling up with more and more "overdue" items on my checklist. Doom. So today, I've been cracking down on that. Hopefully I can manage to get everything all sorted out by the time June 1st rolls around without losing my sanity in the process.

With a potty training toddler to chase around daily, a self-mess-ifying apartment to constantly tidy, and piles of schoolwork to keep up with...Well, let's just say I'm doing my best to stay optimistic! I think blogging is the only thing helping me to wind down and keep my head on my shoulders anymore. But I know the more I do, the more I grow.

So, I apologize for this rather bland post. I haven't even had to time to take any pictures the past few days! But things will smooth themselves out soon enough.

Oh, and by the way...In case anyone is randomly interested, I have a "wedding website" created through the site I'm using as a wedding planner (WeddingWire). It's really just for our guests, but it's pretty neat looking. If you wanna take a peak, you can get to it here.
