Fantastic - It's the word of the year

Well unfortunately I didn't get the date I wanted for the wedding venue. I did get the alternate date but now I'm running into all sorts of problems. Most importantly a very dear family friend who is a photographer in Ohio is booked on that day. Now not only will he won't be there but that also means one more thing I need to find/book and added expense we weren't prepared for. I'm starting to wonder if planning this thing can be done in Chicago in 8 months without sacrificing a lot and paying a lot. I'm one big stressball. Sorry I know this is a running blog but my life has been all wedding all day. This week is my attempt to get back into the running/cross training way of life to try and alleviate some stress.

I am traveling this week (added to the stress). My flight was canceled Sunday which meant I was rescheduled Monday morning on a 6:30am flight. FANTASTIC! Woke up at 4 am but only slept for around 3 hours. Freaking Fantastic! Flew down to Fort Lauderdale worked for 4.5 hours and caught a flight to Atlanta. Got into the hotel around 10pm last night. Long day... Here in the ATL until Thursday. I miss my bed at home already... Just finished a treadmill run and elliptical cool down. It was a struggle to get through but I feel so much better now that I'm done. I may even get to work out two days in a row this week! I haven't done that since last year I think. Next I may even start eating better ;)

By the way I can't stop using the word fantastic. And I use it at the most opportune and inopportune time. I'm obsessed. And I have no idea why or where it came from. But I'm on a mission for to make it the next IT word :)

It sounds cliche, but I swear it all works out in the end. You just have to believe it and you have to remember that this is the fun part! You're designing your dream day and if it isn't going how you want, then start over! It's all up to you.

Hi Jamie

Glad to hear you are still on cloud nine. I remember way back when I got engaged over 8 years ago and Donna and I were feeling the same thing. Congrats again.

I do remember the whole wedding thing. We were absolutely sure we had to have one particular day and it was a huge hassle. We ended up getting married that day(Oct 9th), but it was more expensive. Alternatively we could have used Thanksgiving weekend for about one third of the cost... I guess I will never know if that would have been better. But it all does work out in the end... trust me.

I hope the wedding plans get easier. For a girl who has only been married for 7 months I completely understand. Tom proposed to me at the end of the Chicago marathon in 2006 - we were only engaged for 8 months but we ended up doing a destination wedding because there was so much to do. But, it can be done! Try not to stress too much and just delegate to your trusted friends. In the end just remember your making the plans for you and it will all get done if you just take one step at a time. I know you have no idea who I am but if you need help let me know - I'm a Chicago gal who has been there! Best of luck.

Fantastic getting that work out in after that day. The stress is probably going to be there, so taking care of yourself is the best thing you can do. (unless you can change your perspective on the stress and planning!?) Good luck with all the plans. They WILL come together.
