Surreal.

My life right now. Surreal. I think that word sums it up quite nicely.

These past few days I've sort of felt like I've been looking at my life from the outside. All of the texts and Facebook posts and tweets reminding me that my wedding is only nine days away just don't feel like they're really coming to me, but to someone else.

To Someone else marrying a Matt (I mean it is totally possible. Michelle just married her Matt and Rachel is marrying her Matt soon) and not me.

I don't know what it is or what is going on with me but this whole "I'm getting married" thing just doesn't seem real. Don't get me wrong, I am more than excited to marry Matt and have our wedding already, it's just...I don't know....weird.

And as you've read on here in the past "grown up" things always astound me and hell getting married is pretty damn grown up and I just feel like I'm walking in some real adult shoes and it's pretty damn awesome.

So yeah, NINE DAYS people, NINE FREAKING DAYS. Let that one soak in.



But then again it's just NINE DAYS until I marry my best friend and I can hardly wait.



happy thursday!

The week before my wedding felt surreal to me too. I was strangely calm. Like after months and months of planning, I finally surrendered to the day and was like, eh, it'll all happen how it will happen. People were like, "OMG, you're getting married! Are you nervous??" and I wasn't. It was just like, whoa, it's finally here. Anyway, you're gonna have so, SO much fun at your wedding. It's really magical and sorta trippy. I wish I could go back in time and hang out longer. Ah well, the memories live on on Facebook. Excited for you, my wedding twin!

I guess surreal is much sweeter than a big, giant, quaking bunch of nerves!

I'm so excited for you. :) It feels like just yesterday you were blogging about the proposal! x

I've been a reader for awhile now and your wedding seemed to come so fast. I remember when you were talking about it being months away! Only 9 days left!

I felt the same way the last couple of weeks leading up to my wedding. Very odd. Once it was over with, everything just felt natural. :)

Soak it in! I can understand the feeling. Getting close to your once-in-a-lifetime wedding day is surreal!

San said...

I totally get it. I felt the same way before my wedding. It is surreal... until it becomes reality :) *g*
Just sit back and enjoy the ride!

I'm only half kidding.... okay 10% kidding

Weddings are very surreal. It's been two years and I still catch myself going, wow, I'm married. Just enjoy the day! :)

I agree that it's surreal! It's weird. I don't think it'll really HIT me until the wedding or a few days before maybe??? Sometimes i feel too laid back, because people will ask me questions related to all these things t-do and plans, etc...and I'm like yeah, it's getting done, slowly but surely...haha. I guess I'm not one of those crazy bridezillas :) Anyways, I can't believe your are getting married so soon!!! Aggghh, it's going by SO FAST!
