So if you didn't know what getting married is all about, this is it. Staying up past midnight with your soon-to-be hubby trying to print your programs. I've already expressed that I'm not a DIY type of girl and this is why.
While Aaron's works on centering the program, let me tell you what my day has been like...
10:30 8 minute abs
11:00 In the YMCA shower
11:30 At my aunt's house looking at the program-she's making changes to the changes she made last week. Ughhh.
12:30 At Harris Teeter buying my lunch, milk and BOGO Cap'n Crunch
1:00 Arrive home, receive RSVP in the mail. 13 days late.
1:15 Aaron calls and says he's swamped at work, can't come to reception meeting and tasting today
1:30 My aunt's back at my house working on the program (she had to break to get her nails did)
2:30 Mom arrives home to help
3:30 Trying to get out the door to go to the venue for meeting and tasting
3:45 Dad calls, car won't start. Call venue and tell them we'll be late.
4:00 Successfully jump Dad's car
4:30 Arrive at venue with parents
4:45 Sample hors d'ouvres. I LOVE the ones we picked. I'm not telling! :-p
5:00 Sample entrees. Awesome!!
5:30 Discuss day of details. Schedule final meeting for Wednesday at 10am.
6:00 Leave venue, ask Mom to take me to a store so I can purchase day of underwear. My something blue haha. She obliges.
6:30 Undies purchased, now in Ross as Mom looks for a shawl.
6:31 Leaving Ross. I love TJ Maxx and Marshalls is nice too, but I can't deal with Ross
7:00 Mom realizes she has a box of Grandma's tea cups in the attic
7:30 19 tea cups later, I don't need anymore tea cups!
7:40 Fiancé is free from work and comes over to mi casa.
8:30 The fiancé and I head out to print programs at a mystery location.
9:00 Program is proofed, but not centered. Aaron tries to help a girl out.
1:03 Now. We just printed our first copy on our linen stock paper. The end is near?
As Aaron cuts paper...
I was a bit nervous about our tasting today, because last time we sampled a super tasty salmon en croute, but I did not like the sauce on the chicken we sampled. This time we sampled a chicken saltimbocca and it was really good! I am seriously so excited. Even though it's chicken and salmon, I don't think it's typical wedding food. I hope our guests are happy! Also-I never tasted the vegetarian entree. It's spinach stuffed mushrooms and I don't eat mushrooms (although I like the flavoring-chicken marsala, cream of mushroom, I'll eat around the mushrooms lol). Only 11 people ordered it and and I hope they're happy too!
Well...I guess I'll get back to printing these programs. I pray in an hour I'll be on my way home! I'll add a picture to this post tomorrow...my phone is dead!
