{63 – DIY Planning & “Oh Shit” Moments}

Hi! Yessss, I do realize we are now halfway through January and I haven’t updated. I took a self-imposed vacation from both my sites, and gave myself an extra two weeks off. I could tell you I’m sorry, but I don’t like to lie.

The truth is, I needed the break from both blogs. Partially because I finished my first novel! It’s in the editing stages now, which is spectacular {and there will be more about that tomorrow over on Moxie Missives, along with the other fun writing project that ate my life for three weeks}.

Now. I know you’re wondering where the heck I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. Truth be told… I was busy hating my wedding. I didn’t realize how fast time moves in Wedding World, when every day feels like a battle just to keep going forward, to make any progress. I haven’t had a moment to breathe, let alone sleep, with the writing projects. And the wedding, the wedding is always right there, demanding attention. {Usually in my mother’s voice. ;) }

So I put it on time out. Which was good for both of us, I think.

But we’re now 63 days away from my wedding, and it’s time to ask The Wedding if it’s ready to play nice once more. {It is.} I didn’t realize how close we were until yesterday, when it really hit me.

Actually I believe the technical term is “steam rolled.” And I was left there, sort of looking at everything that still has to get done, and I couldn’t help but mutter quietly to myself, “Oh, shit.”

I am going to have to change things up on here a bit, though. I have several thousand paper flowers to make, and a very limited amount of time to make them in. I also have That Other Site to keep track of. This means posting over here on 11Eleven11 is going to change up a little– to Monday/Wednesday/Friday. {This is so I can have weekends to run around like a nutjob with The Groom.}

And, if you’re really hankering for more: I’m now an official contributor over on Broke Ass Bride! I’m really excited about roughing it out in DIY land for the greater benefit of Bridedom, and I hope you’ll follow along with Dana & I & The Rest of the Girls over there as we make it down the aisle, on budget, by any means necessary.

I’m putting the final touches on our wedding invitations this evening, before they’re sent to the printers. Strap yourselves in folks.

I’m gettin’ hitched.

xo -MM.

  • Ahh, the Oh Shit phase of planning. No better way to describe it! I definitely had an “Oh Shit” List (and blogged about it), but it all got done in the end. Glad to see you back, can’t wait to hear about your writing and wedding-planningka adventures!
