Pre-Summer Update

It's that time of year! You know, when everything is getting warm and the sun is setting a little later and it's so exciting, except for those horrible allergies that make you look like you slept once last week and got punched in the face a bunch and sound super-not-sexy. I am not complaining, I am just saying, I HATE allergies. Ugh. I feel totally sick today and got negative sleep last night. Of all the times in my life I cannot be getting sick! I have a wedding to plan! Not to mention the need to kick my ass at the gym for dress shopping and the engagement shoot and my bridal shower! Go away pollen!!!
But really, our wedding is so super close now that I am starting to get into some sort of zone. Sometimes I start looking at websites for dresses or hairstyles or shoes and I lose entire hours. Hours! My Mom is going to be here in a few weeks and we have 3 appointments booked for me to try on dresses and she gets to be here for my shower, which is so super awesome and is all because Emily is the best Maid of Honor ever! My main focus right now is getting all those little details planned and thought out - centerpieces, napkins, bridesmaids shoes - the things that are so super important but add up to some serious late night thinking bouts. I am going to NYC tomorrow and am really looking forward to those hours on the bus all to myself with my iPod and my wedding magazines and my to-do lists. I can't even remember the last time I had that amount of time to myself and am actually pretty excited about it. I cannot believe that this is my first solo bus ride to NYC - something I thought I would be doing all the time when I moved to Boston!
Speaking of moving to Boston - next week will be our five year anniversary together! Five years, four apartments and so much growth has happened since I left Reno in the rear view mirror and I must say I am so, so incredibly thankful for the life I have today. It truly is nothing at all like I envisioned it would be and so much more wonderful than I ever thought possible. I am getting married to my best friend and biggest source of love and happiness; I have wonderful friends in many different circles; I am progressing in my career and hoping to move on to something bigger and better before the year is over and I wake up everyday knowing that I am living my life to the fullest and striving to be a better person with each sunrise. I am so excited about what this summer is going to hold, but I am most excited to walk down the aisle and be Mrs. Stefanie O'Shea!!!
I have to load my iPhone with some songs, pack my best Sex and the City movie watching outfit and get ready to go get some Greek food when the mister gets home! Oh, and try to knock these stupid allergies out of my system! I think I forgot about them for a second!
