Seven quick takes – July 4 Edition

--- 1 ---

My wedding crafting is still slow going, but I am making progress.  Today I printed out a bunch of timeline photos and text to use for a Scrabble board collage.  Now I just have to glue everything down.  I didn’t get as much done as I’d planned, but it will have to do.  I still have some mason jars to decorate and then I’ll be finished.

I picked up my wedding dress today after it was altered.  The sleeves have now been sewn in place so there should be no worries about them coming unsnapped.  I didn’t get a chance to try it on again yet, but will do that when I get to Amarillo next week.

It has been a relatively uneventful 4th of July so far.  After sleeping in, I did some house cleaning and crafting.  Matt watched the hotdog eating contest while I went to pick up my dress and go to the grocery store.  Matt grilled hotdogs and I made some pasta salad.  Now Matt is watching soccer (boring) and I tried to take a nap but couldn’t fall asleep.  I guess I continue crafting or cleaning shortly.

Tomorrow Matt and I are going to confession at the Cathedral.  It’s still my least favorite thing about being Catholic, but it must be done before we get married.  It will be good to start with a clean slate so to speak.

Josh and I will be heading up to Canyon on Sunday in separate cars.  He has things he wants to do while there and will need access to his own vehicle.  He will follow me up there so I can fill his tank with gas as needed. I’ll be staying at my brother’s most of the week until Friday when I’ll be in the hotel in Canyon and Matt will be at my brother’s.  We’re having a bachelorette party of sorts that evening – but no male strippers thank goodness!  I just wanted some wine and desserts.

I’ve been wearing contacts every other day this past week trying to get my eyes used to wearing them again.  I still had two pair left that I’d never worn and they are set to “expire” this month.  I plan to wear contacts during the wedding.  I just hope I don’t have to read anything because I won’t be able to without reading glasses when I have my contacts in.  I think I’m going to look into getting some of the new bifocal contacts they have out right now.

Can you believe a week from tomorrow that I’ll be married??  It’s been a long road.  I just realized a few days ago that I missed a fairly significant blogging anniversary.  I’ve had this blog for 10 years as of May 25.  My how time flies and things have changed.  Let’s see, we have dealt with Richard, Marty, Patrick, Steve, Brian, Thomas, Michael, and finally the man I’m going to marry, Matt (aka Library Guy).  I guess I had to kiss a lot of frogs to find my prince!

Much happiness to you and Matt.

BTW, I have worn bifocal contacts for 5 years and love them!
