Me: “We are getting married in less than a week? How do you feel about that?”
Mi.Vida: “Well, at this point we’re just maintaining, right? I don’t really have time to know how I feel about it.”
And frankly, he’s right.
I should be writing a post today about how awesome 2013 was for our family. How it was the year that Mi.Vida finally got a new job and we got pregnant against all odds and welcomed a perfect little man into our family. 2013 rocked our world and I should be writing a gratitude filled post about it. But I’m not, because I can’t, because shit is crazy right now.
I’m getting married on Saturday and even though it’s a VERY small ceremony and not really all that big of a deal, it means something to me and I want it to be special. I don’t have very high expectations but I worry I’ll still be disappointed. I hope the whole thing goes okay.
Today I took my dress (and my preschooler and my two month old) to the mall to try on strapless bras and Spanx. Shockingly (::sarcasmfont::) my go-to strapless bra is not up to the challenge that these 36DDD boobs pose so I had to get a new one. And shockingly (::super sarcasmfont::) my two months postpartum body is looking pretty rough, so intense undergarments are in order. I did find a bra that is up to the task and some Spanx that can kind of reign my stomach in so I guess I’m ready to go. I put it all on to make sure it worked with my dress and I will admit, I HATED how I looked. I know I can’t have high expectations so soon after giving birth but I’m EXTREMELY disappointed in my appearance right now and I just hope I’ll be able to look at my wedding pictures some day without hating the fact that I’m in them. Maybe some day…
I will admit, the timing on this wedding could not be worse. 10 days after Christmas and at the tail end of two weeks home alone with the kids… there just isn’t enough time to get things done. I probably won’t even end up getting the mani/pedi I was hoping for. Oh well. My fingernails are the least of my worries right now.
So yeah, things are a little on the stressful side around here and if it gets quiet in this space, that is why. I promise to update you on the wedding after it happens and I will post pictures, even if I’m embarrassed to see myself in them.
I hope you all have a fabulous last day of 2013 and an even better first day of 2014.
