We have 50-60 confirmed "Yes I will be there"s. And a whole lot of people who haven't sent back their RSVP cards.

I checked the hotel in St. Francisville. Four people have made reservations. Oy.

Dresses all taken care of, just waiting on Julia's to arrive, and the CORRECT one to arrive for Faith.

I have to have two weddings. :) The JP won't sign the license for a marriage he didn't perform, so we have to have a separate ceremony from the big wedding. We're doing it that morning at a gazebo in the park in St. Francisville. I'm going to wear a pink dress. If I can find an appropriate one. I found one online, but I'm going to shop the stores with my Maid of Honor tomorrow to see if we can find something I like better.

The shower is next weekend. I'm excited. :)

My dad has been hinting again about trips to China for a honeymoon. Plus hinting about paying off all our credit cards. Plus telling me straight out he's giving us enough money to keep us out of financial hell for the rest of the year. I don't know when my Dad came into all this money, but he rocks my world. Mark's parents are making similar financial hints, and between the two sets, I think I'm just amazed at the generosity of the world these days.

Lots of weird, stressy dreams about the wedding. I don't /feel/ stressed about it, but I keep having dreams in which my dress no longer fits, or I'm late for the rehearsal, or noone shows up for the wedding. Very odd. And I guess I do feel a tiny bit stressed in that I keep thinking there's something I need to do that I'm forgetting.

Having lunch today with the guy who's performing the ceremony to talk about structure and speeches and vows and stuff.

Have to go get a marriage license in the next couple of weeks.

The only thing left to buy, I think, is cake server stuff and toasting goblets and champagne. And the license, of course.

Dissertation stuff -- my advisor said the chapter I showed her was fantastic and shouold be made into an article for publication. Woot. Now I just have to finish the fourth chapter, and then I'll have an entire rough draft sans conclusion. Just chugging along.

Isabelle should be grateful for her cuteness. I might send her back otherwise. Sheesh.

If you're reading this and I don't know if you're coming to my wedding, please tell me. :)

The UPS guy comes to our apartment every day now. And every day he says, "See you tomorrow" and every day I think, "I don't think there's more stuff coming tomorrow..." And every day he comes with something else. :)

Today we got the wedding bubbles and Mark's new Harmonica.

And we went to the store and bought a gorgeous cake server and knife set, and our toasting glasses. And a lace handkerchief, cause damnit, I know I'm gonna cry up there. I can't even not cry at someone /else's/ wedding. I /know/ mine will not be dry.
