i needed a break from making invitations
so i took a nice warm and relazing oatmeal bath!
while in the soothing waters - my mind was racing about all the things that still need to be done ..
and i'm still working on invitations!
when i got out of the tub i thought it would be helpful to jot down a couple things on my mind while lying in bed that way i would sleep so much better!
but as i started to write.. the list started to grow and grow and before i knew it -
this exercise wasn't so helpful anymore.. just overwhelming!
this is the list
shipping cost of invites - UPS vs. USPS
centerpiece arrangements = how to make them
how many flowers per arrangement?
my vs. maid of honor bouquet / different or the same?
maid of honer responsibilities vs. mine or mother's - starting now and on day of
flower girl's dress
bloging = soooo behind
engagement shoot coming up - hair, make-up, attire for eric and me

wow - ok now that's quite a list!
but i have tons of help from both mom's and a great support system from kim my maid of honor.. so i created a new list.. breaking down different "chores" and it became manageable and fun again really fast!
thanks to mom's every sunday help beka day - and the weekend's with shiela this is a no prob list! yay!!
