Ti dage til mit bryllup!! Can you believe it??!!
Jess og Danielle og jeg går for danmark om fem dage og vi er meget spændt!!
I have a list of things to do before Saturday morning at 8:45 AM...but at least one thing is not on my list...
Next to the one that says "bryllup kjole" I can mark it as "DONE"!
(The one without the head is because Robbin said that Mads cannot "see me in the dress before the wedding"!!!)
Mads told me I was a little stressed yesterday..and I tried to tell him that it is slightly stressful planning a wedding from 5400 miles away! But really, I am not stressed... I am just trying to make sure all the details are handled. He has been so great... I make the list, and he does it.....he is absolutely precious!
So here is the list for the days leading up to MIT BRYLLUP--
#1- PACK tonight (12/11) just our suitcases of actual stuff-- the extra bags are done!) Remember my strategy of letting the airlines move me??! Well, since there are 3 of us going this time, I have THREE EXTRA BAGS at 23 KILOS EACH!! I just hope Homeland security does not open them.. they will think I have lost my freaking mind! For instance, I have my golf clubs in the travel bag (but that only weighed 30 pounds) so I used my other 20 pounds by shoving the bag full of: 4 pairs of SHOES, Nicholas Sparks books, Sex and the City DVD collection, and a FOUR POUND JAR OF JIF (don't ask!)
#2- GET JESS TO PACK! (which is code for pick up the clothes off her floor and determine which are clean and which are dirty--and then wash the dirties and put the clean ones in a suitcase!)
(and go to class on Tuesday night...UGH! As if I have time to think about my dang PhD this week!!)
#3- Nails on Wednesday (14/11)
#4- Danish lesson on Thursday (15/11)
#5- Eyebrows & Hair on Friday (16/11)
Get Albert and Emmitt's supplies ready for Heather to come housesit
#6- Fly out at 8:45am on Saturday (17/11) & Arrive in DK on Sunday (18/11) at 9:15am
#7- Look at the shirts and ties that Mads bought to see what matches my dress best
#8- Monday AM (19/11)--rings and flowers confirmed in Herning
#9- Monday PM-- go to Mads' mom's house to pick out my "something borrowed" for the ceremony! I actually emailed her (IN DANISH) and asked her for something to wear for the ceremony.
#10- Tuesday (20/11)--cook Thanksgiving dinner for his family!!! (Gotta throw in a little American since I did not have enough on my list! Am I nuts?!?!)
#11- Wednesday (21/11)- Pick up Rings after they are engraved
#12- Thursday (22/11)- Pick up flowers-- take the girls to the train so they can ride it to Køberhavn! We will drive ahead in the car so we can get checked in to the hotel!
#13- Friday, 23 November, 2007-- 12:45pm-- The big day!!
someone at school told me today that they can actually see the STARS in my eyes... I am 37 years old and am more excited about this than I have EVER been about anything before.
Of course there will be many blog updates along the way...with the culmination on the 23rd, so stay tuned!!
thank you to my amazing friends and family for their love and support....their validation just confirms that I am doing the RIGHT THING.
Jeg elsker min venner og min familie og min Mads!
