Down to the Home Stretch

An awful week (3 exams, 2 lab reports and half a dozen meetings) messed up my life schedule pushing wedding planning, valentine's day and blogging on a back burner. I've been a little frazzled trying to balance school, the wedding, the honeymoon and some really good news (Mr.Boa got a great job offer). We were both lucky to be recruited for full-time jobs(in the same city!) for after graduation. So now dealing with the whole hiring process and planning a cross country move to Ohio for just after the wedding has been added to my HUGE to do list. Overwhelmed does not even begin to cover it!

Noticing it's less than 100 days to the wedding(and a little over 3 months) till the wedding put my little Bee butt into wedding planning panic. I'm finally realizing planning a wedding with all these other things going on is freaking HARD! There is so much left to do and time just keeps ticking away with no regards to my schedule. I have a pretty light school load for this week and have an important event going on next weekend so hopefully I'll be able to get some things done. I'll try to start work on my DIY projects which I have regretfully neglected.

Though I'm cramming everything into my crazy life, I've also come to realize that it's okay if the details aren't all finished. The big ticket items like the venue, church, food, flowers and dress are all taking care of (a wedding can definitely take place) and the most important thing is getting to marry my best friend. Having Mr. Boa supporting me through all this is a constant reminder of the incredible prize I get to keep forever once all this planning craziness is over. All the stress is worth it when I remind myself that these are all moments that will mark the beginning of our new life together. Once in a while I'll try to sit back and soak it all in, knowing that it's a couple of once in a lifetime events that will soon be over, the memories of which I will treasure for a lifetime. How many times do you graduate college, get married (only once I would hope), visit Europe for the first time, move cross country, get your first "real" apartment" (college apartments don't count) and start your first post-grad job?

 Did you have problems balancing the wedding planning with the rest of you life?How did you deal with the wedding planning stress?
