Pushing pause.

So now THAT'S over...

Meaning the royal wedding and the people can turn their attention to the real important wedding...MINE.

Just kidding.

My asshole cat woke me up around 6:20 a.m. (of course, leaving P.I.C. to sleep soundly for another hour or so), so I got up and watched some of the royal wedding. Kate Middleton was lovely. Her dress was amazing. I saw them kiss on the balcony (twice...escandalo!!!) Now perhaps the world can move on.

In other news, I seem to have forgotten the days. I swore that yesterday was Friday. Of course, I was wrong. Today is Friday. Time seems to be rushing past me, flying away from me. It seems that since December 23, I have been planning, anxious to get past this hurdle called the "wedding." Only now that the time is here, I want to push pause.

I want to savor every moment of these next few days. I want to remember that P.I.C. suggested to me yesterday that two days was too long to wait. He wanted to go to city hall yesterday. I want to remember drinking champagne with two of the loveliest girls around last night as we got glue all over our hands putting programs together. I don't want to forget the feeling of calmness that began to take over my body yesterday at the same time the butterflies moved into my stomach for good. I suspect that calmness was a form of exhaustion, but I'm embracing the lack of total anxiety.

I'm excited right now, but also feel like everything is set to run its course. Friends are flying into town. Champagne has been purchased. Errands are mostly complete.

As I sit here on my couch and sip on my coffee as P.I.C. continues to spoon my pillow in bed with Oxford creepily staring at him (don't ask me, he's a creep of a cat), I want to slow everything down. I don't want to forget a moment of these next two days.

It might not be the royal wedding, but it is my wedding. Our wedding. And the weekend is here. I can't say finally because time seems to have sped rapidly to this day. If I could just slow it down for the next 48 hours...

I am so very happy.


  1. Congratulations! And Best Wishes!

  2. What I liked best about the royal wedding was that Kate & Wills looked happy. It's not about the dress, it's not about the guests, it's about the love - and they look to have it.

    And so do you.

    Congrats! Have FUN. Drink it all in. Enjoy yourself. And then post pictures.

  3. Wishing you both all the best tomorrow and enjoy your wedding. Take moments to remember the day and soak it all in.

  4. Rock. ON.

    Weddings should always be supremely awesome.

    Congrats and breathe deep. :)

  5. have such an amazing weekend. best wishes to you two. <3

  6. Happy Wedding Weekend!! I'm in one tomorrow, popular weekend for weddings.

    Good luck and remember to enjoy your day. Who gives a shit if some random cousin thinks the chicken is dry? It's your day - have fun and stop and look around every once in a while at the people who are there for YOU and PIC.

  7. Have an unbelievable day, best wishes to you both and I'm totally freaking excited for you! I can't wait for my own one day!
