almost there!

Yes, only two weeks away!
I am excited - and stressed beyond belief.
You see when we started talking about our wedding months ago we decided that we were going to do as much of it on our own as we could.
Sure we rented the location for the reception and they are taking care of centerpieces but everything else is all us...
Luncheon location, decoration and food.
Reception food, dessert, music and yes - even our cake.
Flower girl dresses and flowers.
It seemed like a good idea at the time, and honestly, I am happy that everything will be exactly how I want it - but holy cow.
I had no idea how much work this would all be. Benson and I both decided that we're never getting married again haha.
And on top of all this we are closing on our about stress.
Eventhough we have all sorts of things we need to get done, Benson's family was able to convince me to come with them to Mexico (a yearly tradition) with them this weekend to relax a little before the big day.
Relax? HA! I don't know if that will happen when I know of everything that will be waiting for me when I get home...Hopefully I will at least get a little color added to my pasty white legs before we go on our cruise :)
p.s. Benson and I had our Temple interview with our Stake President last night. He talked to us for a long time about marriage and said some really neat things. I am so excited to go through the Temple on the 12th!
