Sometimes . . .

Sometimes wedding planning can be stressful.

and sometimes we can fixate on finding the perfect first dance song.

and sometimes when we get stressed we get hypersensitive.

and sometimes a comment is taken out of context and our feelings get hurt.

and sometimes we mope around for the entire next day even though we should know better.

and sometimes your husband-to-be sends you flowers to cheer you up and say he's sorry.

and sometimes those flowers show up a day late which sort of defeated the purpose of cheering you up because you felt better already.

but then you remember why you wanted to marry this guy in the first place.

because he's the type of guy that sends you flowers 12 days before your wedding to cheer you up and say he's sorry even though there was plenty of blame to go around and the whole thing wasn't that big a deal anyway.

Wedding Rings . . . . Check!

We went shopping for rings in the downtown Los Angeles jewelry district on my lunch break today.

One of those details we probably should have taken care of sooner, but still it got done, and it was pain free. I think if we had started the process of looking for the "perfect" rings months ago, I would have gone crazy by now.

As it is, the ring I chose was very similar to many rings I've been looking at, so I was kind of leaning in that direction anyway. It's the sparkly one of the two. Diamonds can be a boy's best friend too, right?

Gifts For Our Peeps

I had a really hard time thinking of things to give the women that were going to be standing up with us. I wanted it to be something meaningful, but not super-expensive.

The idea came to me at Michael's, I would make them all scrapbooks so that all they have to do is print up their favorite pictures of the day in 4x6, stick them on, done. Now before you go thinking this was a whole lot of work, I cheated a little and bought semi-premade kits. I still had to assemble them, but it only took me a few hours for each of them.

I still put in a bit of work into each one though, and added a lot of touches and embellishments I made myself. Ultimately I think they should really like them, and they will have a semi-handmade gift that will hopefully be meaningful.
