I throw my hands up in the air sometimes.

Would you like to know something crazy?
In 5 days, I get hitched.
120 hours.
Well, less actually becase at this time in 5 days we would be married already.
Raise your hand if you're excited!
My hand is up, fyi.
Both hands acutally.
Very high in the air. 

People keep asking me if I'm getting cold feet or if I'm nervous. Nope! Definitely not. I'm freakin excited is what I am. Truthfully, there are a few portions of marriage I look forward to less than others. For example, I more look forward to Clint bringing me breakfast in bed than to cleaning his shoes off the floor. Haha, it's life. I know marriage will be tough. It will be a huge adjustment going from having my own large room and bathroom to downsizing and adding a boy to the mix. I don't know if it's true for all, but my brothers have taught me that all boys are nasty and smell bad 89% of the time. Correct me if I'm wrong.

It won't be a picnic figuring out our budget. It won't be a walk in the park maintaining a home, jobs, school, a relationship, etc. It won't be a piece of cake bringing two people from two different families with two very different backgrounds together to work and live as one. But you know what? I couldn't be more excited. Know why? Because I have found the absolute best boy to share all those times with- good and bad. I probably can't fully comprehend, but I know it will be hard and I know nothing could be more worth it.  Everything about these next few weeks are going to be a huge adjustment. I have no clue how we're going to get everything done. I don't know how we're going to make our apartment work. I don't know how we'll balance school. I don't know how we'll do a lot of things. But one thing I know without a shadow of a doubt is that I am completely in love (and maybe a little bit obsessed- sue me) with Clint. Everything else will be figured out along the way.
Some of you have been asking to see wedding pictures. Notice how you can't see much i.e. my dress, our faces, basically everything. I did that on purpose :) more will come after the wedding.

p.s. if you're interested in guest posting for me while i'm gone, send me an e-mail with your topic idea.

That is a very cute picture!! I love the idea!
About the rest, living together sure is a huge adjustment, but it helps a lot to go into it with open eyes, like you do.
My one big tip that I give everyone moving in together is: Give each other room. Ok, maybe not directly after the wedding, haha. Cling together and enjoy your newfound togetherness then, but give each other space in the long haul. And if your living space doesn't give it away, then give each other space by just doing your own thing. Maybe each of you is going out with friends or on a walk or shopping to give the other one some quiet time. And when you get back together, you can tell each other how much you've missed the other one and talk all the things you saw while apart :-)
