officially a mrs.

Sorry I've been absent. I've been pretty busy. Nothing special really...

Ok, that's a lie. I've been busy getting MARRIED!!!

Things are super crazy as we're running around saying goodbye to the family that flew into town as well as preparing for our honeymoon, but I promise to write all about it when I get back!

But to summarize - I'm a happy gal.

back in chicago

Tuesday night I flew back to Chicago. In the past month, I've been on a plane 3 times and as a girl who really hates to fly, it's been a little bit rough. I'm terrified of flying. I used to love it and then suddenly about 6 years ago, it started to scare the crap out of me. I still have trouble wrapping my head around how something so big can fly. I know it's physics and it's not that complicated and that it's the safest way to travel. The boy constantly tells me that I have no problem with driving and that it's much more dangerous than being on a plane. I think it has something to do with giving up control. I get so nervous that I'm super alert for the day or so before the flight and I'm really jumpy during the flight so I'm exhausted by the time I get home. I also haven't been sleeping well the last few nights, so I'm a sleepy gal. Anyone with advice on how to cope with flight nerves, please pass them my way.

I've spent the last 2 days running a ridiculous amount of errands. I'm absolutely thrilled to be back home. Since I was here 3 weeks ago, I feel like I never left. I don't get home very often so my mom totally pampers me when I'm here and I have to admit, it's lovely. I'm a lucky gal. Plus, I absolutely love waking up to this view every morning:

Yesterday the bestie and I went to our spot for some much needed BLTs and pie and were thrilled that it was free pie day. We ate far too much and she suddenly pulled out plastic vampire teeth, put them on and asked if she sparkled (if you're in the know, you get this). We proceeded to spend about 30 minutes quoting twilight and laughing about how ridiculous we are. I swear I'm 26 years old...and that this behavior is totally normal. I adore that girl.

Oh, and I'm getting married in 3 1/2 weeks. I was really calm but I slowly feel like freaking out. There are a bunch of little details to take care of and I'm worried about it getting done and looking fabulous. I keep reminding myself that the day is really about the act of getting married and everything else will fall into place but the girl in me wants it to be perfect. Yesterday I had my final dress fitting and it's amazing, so at least I was able to avoid the cookies and sweets and zip the dress up :)

Chicago Peeps, let me know if there's anything fun going on in the city this week/weekend that I should be aware of!
