Let the games begin.

I'm stressed out. I can't believe this! Who gets stressed out in the middle of summer? Who can possibly be stressed when the weather is warm, the flowers are flourishing, and the sun is shining?

Me. The answer to that question is me.

It's actually unfathomable how busy the months of August and September are going to be for me, and in case you didn't know, I am the Maid of Honor for a wedding in September, so I'm in the process of planning a few events.

I am a lover of lists. So can I just make a list of things happening from now until September 22? Thanks.

-Folklorama this weekend!

-Shopping for Bachelorette party goods.

-Birthday party!

-Michael Buble concert!!

-Taking one of my best friends out for supper on her birthday.

-Meeting with the Bombers merchandise guy for Labour Day details.

-Bachelorette party!!!! (planned by me)

-Create wedding slideshow.

-My town's fair weekend. (parade, fireworks, BBQ chicken, country music, mmm...)

-One of my best friends' birthday parties on the beach!

-Lingerie Shower (planned by me)

-Spending Labour Day weekend in Regina for the Labour Day Classic. (Go Bombers!!)

-Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

-The day before the wedding day. (this will be an interesting day!)

-Wedding day!!!!

-My sister is coming to visit for a week!

-My last week of work (so bittersweet)

-Packing up my room for moving day.

-Packing for Germany.

-Leaving for Germany.

So as you can see, I'm a busy girl, and it's insane as to how much work I need to take off. And that list isn't even the half of it. Most of my days are spontaneous, so imagine this list times two! I'd say that most of the stress is derived from my best friend's wedding. (planning parties and events has never, ever, been my thing. There's so much work that goes into it.) But I would do anything for that girl. :)

I just gotta remind myself to take it one day at a time and cherish moments like this; the moments I can stop and take a breath.
