Monday Made It - Wedding Edition

I've been MIA this week...
While everyone else is thinking about or starting school, I've officially been off for 2 weeks now, with 3 more to go.
I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics this week, although I don't have an actual 'Made It this Week' (shhh, don't tell ...) I thought I'd link up, because my last made it was just before the 'Big Day'

I GOT MARRIED last MONDAY! My 'made it' could be my wedding right?
It's been so surreal. A long year and a bit of planning and it's done.
We got married in a medieval country barn. Literally the best day ever, so cliche, but it really was.

I might be biased, but I'm pretty sure I had the BEST flowers ever
Here we go, some 'Made Its' - my sister woodburned the table numbers.
I also used old books for the centerpieces. The menu is from a previous Monday Made-It

We (okay mainly my sister and bridesmaids, but I was the 'ideas girl') made the decor and based it on kind of a vintage, rustic feel. We took a wooden pallet and strung twine across for the photos. The cards box was made from a very old piece of luggage used as a prop at school.

Okay, so once again, soooo sorry about being naughty and not putting a school Made It this week. When I'm finally allowed back into my room (September), I'll start posting some actual school things.

Currently ... Stressed out

So it's nearly time...
I'm getting married on Monday.
I haven't been looking at blogs for the past week, which is so unheard of. I just couldn't.
Then I saw that Farley's currently was up...and I decided to use it as a nice way to relax.
So without further ado...

As you might imagine, everything on here is basically wedding related. I only finished school last week, so the b2s thing isn't on my mind at the moment.
Listening: I woke up at 6:30 today. You'd think with how tired I am I could actually sleep in, but once I'm up my mind starts I thought I'd do a blog post to take my mind off things for a while.
Loving: So I know this one is super cheesy, but ... I've tried really hard not to be a bridezilla, but with my divorced parents both arriving to England and me suddenly becoming a taxi service, my stress levels have increased and my patience has all but disappeared. Add to this that last weekend I tried my dress on and it didn't fit! Cue the absolute sobbing hysterics. HE HAS BEEN A SAINT! Dress is sorted BTW - turns out that even if you don't diet, but decide to start physical activities like climbing and weightlifting, you will increase in size. I haven't really gained weight, but apparently muscle mass. oops.
Thinking: Wedding, 'nuff said
Wanting: No rain and for the wedding to be the best day ever. The rain thing is out of my hands. As the weatherman has just said, 'Looks like Monday will be a washout, but dry on Tuesday'. Sucks for the outdoor activities and beautiful grounds my guests will not be seeing.
Needing: To feel like I'm actually on summer holidays
B2S must haves: As I mentioned before, I only just finished school. I'll be honest, until last week I've been obsessing about this next year. My must haves are a clean room, which isn't happening at the moment. I've been locked out until Sep. and I had to move rooms. See here
Cute room. I saw the cutest room decor pack on Pinterest like 3 months ago by Primary Graffiti. Her Funky Sock Monkey is such a random and cute idea. It will kinda match the wallpaper I've used on one of my bulletin boards. I'm just waiting for that bad boy to go on sale and then I'll be snapping it up.
Patience - I know this isn't something you can't physically buy (which is such a shame), but the beginning of the year is soooooo exhausting that a little extra patience can go a long way.

Thanks so much to anyone who has managed to read this whole thing. Sorry it was not very school related. I really needed to do this to focus my mind and chill out for a bit :)
