Friday September 10th 2010 began like most days. My eyes open WIDE right at 642am. I turn over a few times trying to figure out why my body decides to wake up at this time EVERY day and I realize Im not alone. Im in a big comfy bed with both Carynn and Stella! I lay there with a big smile on my face when the reality of the day sets in. All I want to do is get up, yell, and jump on the bed that "today is the today!!" Then I remembered it was only 642 am and theres 5 people I love dearly sleeping very soundly, so I lay there for as long as physically possible. About an hour later my girls start to slowly wake up and the day begins!!!
We ordered breakfast, cuddled in bed, and just talked about stuff and things. I remember at some point in the morning I had asked Amanda why on wedding days it seems as though the hours go by like minutes. It seems like no matter how early you start to get ready, you're always running out of time. My day was no different....starting at 642 am and we were still rushing towards the end. But the time in between was so sweet. Being able to spend hours with my Stella Bell, sisters and mom, and closest girl friends was so wonderful and relaxing.

Hello I Love You
At some point after this the realness of this day set in and I begin to cry. And not like "just emotional" or "teary eyed" but like real life sobs and massive tears. Im still trying to figure what sent me into this major cry attack and cant figure it out. Something about Faith putting my veil on and feeling "finished" and so overwhelmed by the fact that Ryan was choosing me...me! After my quick cry I got touched up and was on my way for the "first look" with Ryan...
