54 days!

54 days until the wedding
28 days of work left before the wedding
8 Weight Watcher weigh-ins before the wedding
10 days until my first dress fitting
19 days until my two consecutive weeks of showers commence
40 days until my Bachelorette Party
25 days until my hair and makeup trial for the wedding
56 days until we leave for Jamaica!

There are so many things to look forward to in the next 54 days that it's hard to control my excitement and my nervousness for all of the activities in my future.  I feel like I should sit back and enjoy these final days as a single woman, but its hard when I just want my wedding day to be here.  More and more friends are getting engaged and especially facebook reminds me of all of the relationships that are taking the next step into matrimony.  When someone new pops the question, I just think to myself, "wow they are so lucky they get to start this wonderful process".  I think more and more of me wants to take it slow and enjoy this process, but then the other part of me just wants to be a wife to my wonderful fiance!  Regardless, wedding planning leaves me with a large list of things to do.  Luckily I have a wonderful family and future family to help out with some of the tasks of this wedding!  I sent my mother a draft of what I wanted our ceremony programs to look like.  She wrote me back saying, "It is not fair making me cry at work!! LOL".  I loved that.  It makes me feel like I am truly apart of something bigger than myself.  My mom doesn't show her emotion as often, so the fact that she was moved reading through just a draft of our ceremony program really touched me.  I can't wait until Danny can officially become a part of my family and vice versa.  Even though we feel like we already are, this day will mean so much more to our family than I had ever realized when first saying "yes" to Danny's proposal.  I truly believe that my parents feel as lucky to have found Danny for me than I do, which means a lot to me.
