*Whispers* Seven Days

Were any of you frightened by "The Ring"?  I WASN'T!  I thought it was hilarious!  And kind of boring.  The first time I watched it, my friend got mad at me because I fell asleep and she was too scared to watch it alone so she had to turn it off.  ROTFL!!  My mom gave me the gift and the curse by not letting me watch scary or R-rated movies basically until I was in high school.  One or two may have slipped in while at friends' houses (Jason's Lyric aka the first movie that ever made me cry) but in general, she's the reason there are tons and tons of films I had never seen.  But the gift?  I wasn't regularly terrified by things my little brain couldn't handle and now NOTHING scares me!  LOL  I don't like gory movies because they're just unnecessary but regular old "scary" films?  Bah!  I do like a good story that feels like it could happen to me with frights and startles at every turn.  Those are the BEST!!!!

What's my point?  My sister said she's gonna start calling me today whispering, "Seven days..."  LOLOL!!  DO IT!!!  Also, she was approved for her vacation and she'll be in town several days before the wedding!!!!  YAY!!!!  WE SO EXCITED!!!  For a minute it looked like she'd have to drive down Thursday night.  The last 24 hours have been AWESOME!!  Everything's falling into place!

Makeup...
My line sister and I went to the Mac counter to get my eyes done and it was AWESOME!!  It took far too long at over 2 hours but it came out marvelously!  Minus the brows.  My brows were near Groucho Marx territory.  I have kind of sparse brows (she get it from her momma) and she overfilled.  Then my other product junkie friend went with me to Clinique and Sephora then Walgreens.  I learned so many makeup terms my head is spinning!  Actually the second one wore me OUT!!  I literally had a headache and had to go home and take a nap!!  LOLOL!  Then I asked my future SIL, a long time makeup artist, to do my makeup and she said, "I'd be honored!"  Awwww!  Extra sweet!

Polish...
The two places I went didn't have any of the colors I was looking for but OPI was buy one get one half off so I got two colors, one for the fingers (pinkish white) and one for the toes (bright purple)!  Did I ever tell you I hate manis?  I never ever like how they shape my nails no matter what I tell them.  I want my nails to look NATURAL. Not rounded, not square, just like they grow out of my nail beds!!  (My nail beds suck... NAME THAT MOVIE!!)

Hair...
I asked my sister to do it and she looked nervous.  It will come out marvelously.  I'm not worried!  She does a great job!  And I know the style I want with pictures so everything should be fine!

Suit/Tux...
Rashan, God love him, has been working my nerves with his attire.  We discarded any of the clothes he owns and decided to go the tux rental route.  Until we got to the place and he HATED all of the vest options.  He decided to just buy something... a nice suit most likely since tuxes can be so expensive.  I saw some of those same tux vests online the next day and was like Oh heck no. Right decision for us.  When I was looking for makeup Wednesday, I also decided to look for suit or tux options on sale for Rah.  Yesterday, we hit the jackpot!  Tuxes were on sale for $100 at Belk!!!!!  FOR REAL!?!?  The tux shirt, black tie, black bow tie, button covers, & cuff links came in a box set also on sale.  The bright tie he'll wear in lieu of the black one?  ALSO on sale!  When the dude rang it up, we saved $183!!!  And he spent just a little bit more than the cost of a rental and looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He said, "Does this mean I have to take you to the opera now?"  "IN NEW YORK!!!"  LOL  Porgie & Bess or Carmen, please!

Guests...
The list is shockingly shrinking as we get closer to the date.  There are currently less than 30 people and that is how it will stay.  MARGARITAS FOR EVERYBODY!!!  Did I tell you we're doing a three-course Mexican dinner?  I CAN.NOT WAIT!!!  Rashan said I need to get someone on margarita duty if they're not strong so I don't have to yell at people to get better margaritas.  I need a volunteer!  LOL

Family...
My aunt left me the most awesome message this morning!!  (She still doesn't know I'm not an earlier riser and thinks I'm just avoiding her calls when I'm asleep... LOLOL)  She said essentially, "I'm so happy for you! Make sure you let me know the next time you're in Savannah. In the next week, things will get very hectic.  Most of all, enjoy your day."  AWWWWWWW!!  LOVE HER!!  SO the reason she's one of my favorite aunts!!

Flowers...
These doggone flowers have been the bane of my existence.  I finally decided on Tuesday when I was told it was too late to special order............... that I'm just gonna have to give these flowers over to God and let him handle it.  The next day a dozen roses were on sale at Harris Teeter for the week for $5.  Thanks God!!!  So I'll be buying my flowers there on Tuesday.  They better make it last forever!  OR ELSE!  Or else nothing... if I can't get decent looking flowers, I'll really just have none and nothing will happen.  I'll still get married to a marvelous man!

Music...
I almost forgot music!  If you have some good, jazzy music suggestions, we're open.  We like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald kind of jazz so if you have some good love songs or romantic sounding instrumentals, leave your suggestions in the comments.  Also... I do not like Billie Holiday so leave her off of your lists.  Thank you much!

Y'all... I can't wait!!!  In a little over 7 days, I'll be his Mrs.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched the Ring with the skeptical face as well. It wasn't scary, just a creepy Japanese movie. My BF at the time would call and whisper 'seven days' as well!! Boooooo, lol

I'm so glad that everything is moving right along. I for one hate scary, gory movies. I never enjoyed horror movies as a kid and I still don't.

That is so cool that your sister will be in town and able to help keep your stress down. I really love how you're getting business taken care of with such ease!

Let's keep the count going!!!
