Okay…last I left you all it was 28 days until the wedding. Well…now it’s 29 AFTER the wedding and boy has the time flown by. Needless to say, the closer I got to the wedding, the less time I had for extra activities like checking and posting on Tumblr. Not only were we still doing the final touches for the wedding, but we were also moving all of our stuff into the house. This includes everything from Mark’s business, where our furniture from his house was stored, to everything in my apartment.
But before I get too far I do want to say that the bridal shower and bachelorette party went off without a hitch.
Of course I wore a tiara ;-)

Those three weeks between the shower/bachelorette may have gone by as fast as the day of the wedding. It’s hard to even go back and reflect on it. I will say that in that time between my last post and the shower, I did decide to defer my marathon entry for the Marine Corps Marathon. While my physical therapy was going great and I was getting all of my long-runs in, I knew that going forward…from the shower to the wedding, that it would be a struggle. I was supposed to run 12 miles the day of my wedding. I knew, despite my best efforts, that it wouldn’t happen. So I decided to defer and look forward to the Disney Marathon.
Since a separate post will be made for the wedding, I will say that since the wedding I’ve graduated from PT and I went on my Disneymoon (we’re calling it that because we were still hoping to go somewhere new and different for our honeymoon and we had already planned to go to Disney before the wedding date was solidified). It is nice to have the stress of wedding planning behind me but I will tell you, it goes by sooooo fast. The whole wedding itself was a blur and now it’s almost a month later! I’ve started training for the Disney Marathon and so far, it’s going ok. I haven’t had any pain or issues.
Oh yea, and there is this little government shutdown going on…that has effected me a bit and almost made me come home early from Disney! Since I am an essential employee I continue to work without being paid. Sucks when you spend almost all of your savings on a wedding to have this now happen. I’m trying to take one day at a time.
But, that’s it for now. Like I said, I’ll post separately about the wedding, including awesome pictures and mad vendor props ;-)
I am now Mrs Miller!
When we struggle, we all struggle together.
I’ve been struggling with a lot of things lately. Running, eating right, stress, sleep, etc etc. It’s good to have others out there to turn to, even if it is “oh hey look, they’re going through it too”.
you realize your old high school crush is an internet celebrity and now you see his face everywhere.
Quick…someone has to have a meme for this!?
I know it’s been a while but man how quickly time can go when life is happening. Seriously, trying to buy a new house, plan a wedding, and train for a marathon is serious business and technically should not be combined….ever. Thankfully we (my fiance Mark and I) closed on our house on Thursday. YAY! One very huge task accomplished.
Oh wait…now we have to pack up all our stuff and move it into the house.
Needless to say life is still pretty much a whirlwind. We’ve only got 28 days to go before the wedding. TWENTY EIGHT! and our pastor cancelled on us at the beginning of last week. I’m trying not to freak out but I have had a few breakdowns due to the pressure and stress - mainly in private or around Mark who has handled it quite swimingly. I really am trying not to be a bridezilla but my tendency to worry about EVERYTHING has me going bonkers.
And the one thing that helps keep me from throwing in the towel or jumping off a bridge? Running. And how much time have I had to do that lately. Yeah…I don’t want to talk about it. Okay, I do. Thankfully I’ve been able to get all of my long runs in on the weekends. Unfortunately, that really hasn’t been the case during the week. I need running to keep me sane and on top of that I should be running to get ready for my marathon. I’m trying not to freak out while I’m typing all of this out. heh.
*SIGH* Hopefully this week is the turning point. I have my shower and bachelorette party next weekend. All I have to do is get through two long runs and 4 midnight shifts.
