We Graduated from the Singles Ward!

Today was Andy and my last time at Glendale 7th YSA (young-single adults) ward and coincidentally, my one year anniversary since being baptized.

Being baptized was the best decision of my life. Marrying Andy will be the next best decision. But how often do we make bad decisions and then mope about 'em for way too long?

I have been moping about my marshmallow smore seat placecards. It was a bad decision, but I think I need to build a bridge and get over it because I am 5 days away, about 150 smore seat placecards to go and attitude makes a big difference. So going forward, I am going to excitedly glue 150 marshmallows to two pieces of tan foam board with an extra piece of brown foam cut into the shape of a heart - and don't forget two googly eyes!

Though I have a lot to do before the wedding, I'm feeling good about everything outstanding... and really excited for the big day. A bit scared that I won't have any clothes to pack for Hawaii since most of my stuff has already been moved into our future apartment, but overall grinning ear to ear at the prospect of all time and eternity with my best friend. It's not going to be easy, but we'll have great attitudes about it!

2 days until I'm done working
4 days until I go through the Temple
5 days until I'm married
6 days until Hawaii

Girl, I wish I was there to help....and I'm sorry we're going to miss the big day!!

Wishing you a SMOOTH wedding day....oh, and this piece of advice - put someone ELSE in charge of directing the reception. I directed my own, and we didn't cut the wedding cake until everybody had already eaten their fill of the cheap Costco sheet cakes we had bought "just in case" there wasn't enough wedding cake. Grr. So, cut the cake early....and if anybody stops you on your way to your food, say "walk with me!" and KEEP GOING. I can't name ANY brides who actually ate at their own receptions. Be the first!

Oh, and PLEASE come out to Seattle and see us!!! I think you guys would like it here. *grin*
