The wedding day madness. I woke up Saturday morning to Amber jumping on the bed Stephanie and her two sisters were sleeping in as she yelled, “It’s your wedding daaayyy!” Of course, I wanted to keep sleeping but our day was packed full of things to do. Once we were all up and ready, Stephanie and her sister Lori (her MOH) left for some Starbucks and to go get their hair done at Ulta. The rest of us sat patiently in the hotel room as we awaited Jillian and Michella to arrive and do our hair.

Michella arrived first and started my hair while Jililan came not long after that with her two week old newborn daughter, Rhyen. Rhyen is so cute! Of course, since I was getting my hair done, I wasn’t able to hold her yet.

After our hair was finished up, we all headed over to Champ’s for a quick bridal luncheon before heading back out to get our makeup done and get dressed.

After lunch, Amber and I went over to the mall to get our makeup done for free. I don’t think I’ll EVER do that again. When we left, we both looked like prostitutes, that’s how heavy our eye makeup was. From there we were in a rush to get back to the hotel to fix our makeup and get our dresses on since the photographers were arriving soon.

Once we were ready we headed to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center to take photos. Kari Crowe and her husband, Mark Seher, were the photographers. I admire their work a lot and I still can’t wait to see the rest of the photos they took. We took a bunch of photos out on a field nearby. All of us girls sank into the ground with our heels and got our shoes muddy, haha.

After photos were over, we waited around until the guests started arriving and for the ceremony to begin. The ceremony itself went by really fast and I didn’t trip; success! Then it was on to the reception with some good food and fun dancing!! I even caught the bouquet. Eek. Only sad part from the night was that Brad and I never took a picture together.

This is a little late but this past Saturday, June 11th, two of my close friends got married! Congratulations Stephanie and Bryan! Her sisters and cousins, our friend Amber, and myself were all bridesmaids so we were with her the majority of the time hanging out and preparing for the day.

Friday I left work early to head down to Colorado Springs for the rehearsal and dinner. I pretty much had to book it since I was strapped for time. Jeff, Amber, and I were all late. Oops. The rehearsal seemed to go by SUPER fast and admittedly, I wasn’t paying attention the entire time. We went through one run and were done. I let it be known that I had no idea where I was going during the practice but got it down after that. My aisle partner was one of Bryan’s friends, Codin. He was pretty fun. We talked about me falling and how I hoped it wouldn’t happen. That’s one of my biggest fears, tripping and falling over my own clumsy legs. Albeit, I was wearing some pretty high heels that evening.

The "hot librarian" cops feel from big boobied blonde.

After the rehearsal we stood around and talked and met the others who were there for a little bit. From there, we took off to go eat over at The Depot, an old train station that was turned into a restaurant and is quite popular for events and rehearsal dinners. We took pictures, hung out, ate food, and had fun. Best part about it? Well, apparently it’s against health code for people to take home food if it’s in a buffet style format, which the dinner was. Well, guess who had a bunch of empty tupperware to sneak food home with!? Bryan’s parents. So the parents took watch as the bridesmaids piled food into the containers as the groomsmen watched. Awesome.

After everyone was finished up there we headed to the Antlers hotel in downtown Colorado Springs. The girls were all staying the night and getting ready there the next day. The guys hadn’t planned on staying there but ended up doing so after a night of drinking and partying and swimming. We hung out with them at the pool for a little bit, which resulted in Jeff taking a running head start and tackling me into the pool. Fun stuff.

I think us girls got to sleep around 2am or later. As for the guys, I have no idea but I know it was much later than us. Needless to say, with the girls having to get up way earlier than the guys to get our hair done, makeup, get dressed, etc. we were way tired. I’ll leave the actual wedding day festivities for another post.

Overthinking things is something I struggle with and it’s hard not to do. Sometimes I analyze situations over and over or come up with 2937183 different scenarios of “what if” and it becomes a downward spiral. I found this quote to be very true of not only my life but plenty of others. I know I’m not the only who does this!

“I think and think and think, I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”

Jonathan Safran Foer

Think about that! ;]

Truth


“To die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment.”

Feeling the past moving in
Letting a new day begin
Hold to the time that you know
You don’t have to move on to let go

Remember turning on the the night
And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through

I remember

Add to the memory you keep
Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don’t have to give up to let go

Remember turning on the the night
And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through

I remember, I remember

Feeling the past moving in
letting a new day begin
hold to the time that you know
you don’t have to move on to let go

Add to the memory you keep
Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don’t have to give up to let go

I remember

 

I think the lyrics to this song hold a lot of meaning, especially the lines “you don’t have to move on to let go” and “you don’t have to give up to let go.” I know they seem like contradictory statements but they make sense. Think about it.

 

I didn’t give up but I felt I had to let go.

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
