the night before and morning of....

The night before the wedding was a big hectic.
Rehersal, getting together afterwards to pizza and catching up.
Running around to accomplish last minute things.
Somehow I managed to get to be before 11.
Jamie spent the night at his mom's, so Jana stayed with me.
I still don't know how we managed to climb into bed around 10:30 and as chatty as we usually are we were snoozing by 11.
We got up around 6 or 7.
Still shocked at the awesome sleep I got.
Wicked proud because I usually have the worst time falling asleep.
I think it was the fact that I was so content with marriage, I couldn't wait to marry Jamie.
The next morning was pretty crazy.
We had a hair stylist and make up chick come here to get us ready.
Realizing we'd need a table for the stylist to use, Jana and I went to take my scrapbook table out in the living room.
Removal of a door later, we had it all set up.
The girls started trickling in, we got our hair did.
Amy's mom came with some yummy goodies that were enjoyed by all.
Shelley was here snapping all the details.
When I was ready I threw on my dress, and some sunglasses and went out to pump some gas.
I'm soooo classy.
It was a good laugh---I wonder if those pictues came out, haven't seen them yet.
I gave the girls their gifts.
And Jana surprised me with one.
I was pretty much the modern bride, wasn't really into traditions.
But that did not stop her from giving me: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Something old: a vintage hanky (immediately stuffed into my dress)
Something new: white sunglasses (can be seen in some pictures)
Something borrowed: Her yummy escada perfume which I drenched myself in
Something blue: a vintage looking, blue mirrored compact.
So sweet of her.
Before I knew it, it was time to rush out to the church.....
