There are 19 days to go until the wedding and after this weekend, we are finally feeling – at least as much as is possible – that our to-do list is under control.
Bobby and I traveled to Arizona for another productive weekend that included:
- Meeting with our priest
- Putting together gift bags and favors for the guests
- Working on more wedding menus
- Designing and writing our wedding program
- Meeting with our music director – it’s going to be AMAZING!!
- Trying on – and loving – my wedding dress one more time before the big day
Through it all, we’ve followed a few very powerful mantras.
“No coffee, no workee.” Simple, yet effective.
It’s also important to remember that, whenever possible, you should eat your colors.
Especially when they are in limited supply – and soon to be out of season for six+ months.
Another must-believe mantra: good things come in small packages.
Whole Foods tarts, for instance. We are serving these at our Open House on October 15. From left to right, we have key lime (my favorite), banana cream, raspberry-lemon and chocolate.
Good things also come in small pictures.
But perhaps most importantly, when there are less than three weeks to go until the big day, you best not dilly-dally with indecisiveness. Unless, of course, you are perusing the menu at Dilly’s Deli.
Then, by all means, you should sit down and stay a while. I suggest ordering the Red Bird sandwich off of the long and detailed menu. It comes with turkey, spinach, red onion, green peppers, tomato and a swoon-worthy roasted red pepper pesto.
If you are still feeling indecisive, then, by all means, order a salad on the side. I chose to Go Greek.
My family and I were big fans of Dilly’s Deli. Particularly their entertaining logo.
Although my name will soon be changing, I’ll always be a little bit quacky.
That’s why I also adhere to the philosophy that everyone is – and should be – a little bit crazy.
With less than three weeks until my wedding, anything less than crazy would be boring, right? 😉
How are you thinking, acting, being, etc. a little “crazy” this week?
Don’t be shy! I can’t wait to hear your answers.
