Rolling with the punches

Oh My Gosh...no wonder brides get wedding planners!!! You would be amazed at all the details that go into planning a wedding! Slowly but surely, in the midst of all the wedding chaos, I have still been plugging away at this sweater. I have all the pieces done, so now it's a matter of seaming and picking up stitches for the collar. Sadly, it's on the back burner while I battle the road blocks for this wedding.
Happily, I am just about at the assembly phase for the wedding invitations! I hit a serious creative block coming up with the design for these! Now things are moving right a long, though I am about 3 or 4 weeks behind, I should be able to get them out soon. I think I am going to be giving my soon-to-be-mother-in-law a call to see if she'd like to help put these together with me.
We have run into a few bumps and bruises along the way for this wedding...the wedding dress is going to be three weeks late and I am hoping there will be time for alterations, Ken's wedding band will likely not be arriving in time for the wedding, the bachelorette party has crumbled after months of talking and planning, an arguement as a result of the bachelorette party is the reason one of my bride's maids has decided to not be part of the wedding, still haven't decided on or ordered the tux's (how long does that take anyways?), and I had food poisoning while I shopped with my bride's maids for their dresses. I am thinking it can only get better from here, but I am not holding my breath!! In the end the wedding is all about the reception anyways...and that is coming together GREAT, so that's a good thing.
In the mean time, my little sprouts are growing like crazy...now if the weather would starting being a little more predictable, I would plant them outside!!
