Sunday, March 14, 2010
My second countdown is on! I'm getting so excited and sometimes I try to contain myself like "calm down girl!" but I'm so excited to finally officially be my boo's wife! I think about it and I'm so overwhelmed. Even now as I'm typing this there's so much love in my heart. I'm sitting alone in our living room (Bolaji's out at Polo) and I can't believe how happy and lucky I am. I'm a lucky girl. A very very very lucky girl.

We took my mother-in-law out to lunch today to celebrate mothering sunday and it was quite a lovely afternoon. I was a bit nervous about it because they are very blunt, the two, and I was afraid that something might come up that would upset me. But it was lovely. My father in-law had brought along a few things he wanted to put into the out of town bags he was making, so they showed us samples. Yes you read that right: My father-in-law is making OOT bags for the guests at the wedding! I could just literally jump for glee! These bags are on my to do list but to be really honest I was a bit worried about them because I wasn't sure if i'd really have time to finish them up so you can imagine my surprise! God Bless 'Em! I feel like perhaps we just need to build our relationship and settle into our comfort zone and I must say I'm looking forward to that as well.

My second dress fitting is next week, YIPPEE. I'm so excited I could burst really. I went for the first fitting a few weeks ago but that was just a calico fitting but this next one would be the actual dress. I can't wait! I don't know if i'm going to cry or be emotional. We'll see. I might have to go by myself though as my best friends don't live in Lagos and other family members won't be able to take time off work. We'll see though. Still on the wedding note, I won't be able to travel to the States any longer to do some wedding shopping so I'm hoping to find everything I need here. I still need to buy my wedding shoes, my undergarments, my wedding night lingerie, and maybe a few other things. This should take some coordinating.

Oh, I wanted to write such an interesting post but I don't know if wedding stuff is exciting, plus I'm finding it hard to be coherent right now because I'm just so overjoyed and overwhelmed at the prospect of the whole thing. Okay, let me go read some other blogs and maybe I'll be inspired to write something interesting, lol.

Less than a month to go!
