5 Days!

Lulu here! I'm currently cozied up under the covers, snug as a bug in this divine resort bed. I'm wary from a long day and a shot of NyQuil, but decided that it's more important to capture these last few pre-marital days on the blog than to fall asleep watching reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond! I'm sure my future children will get a kick to read this many years from now and see just what I was feeling the week I got married.

I had a stress-free Saturday morning packing for the trip (and I *never* have a stress-free packing experience) and tidying the house for my 2 week departure. My flight from New York to Phoenix was truly entertaining. I spent much of the time talking about marriage with the 60 something year old man next to me, who was 27 hours deep into a flight from Pakistan to Phoenix to await the arrival of his grandchild. I also taught him how to use his personal airline TV set, which was quite a kick. The adorable attendants from JetBlue also comped my entire beverage bill! I never realized the effect the phrase "I'm getting married this week!" had on people. Thank you, lovely Jetblue ladies!

My parents and their little yorkie Talulah picked me up from the airport, and ushered me back to the resort to begin one of the best weeks of my life. The hotel catering manager Lindsay hooked me up with the greatest room, I feel like a queen to be posted up here all week! I walked into my awesome new digs to find the piece de resistance- my wedding dress hanging on the closet door, fluffed out in all its glory. It's so surreal to have it right here- makes me realize that I'm actually getting married in that dress. THIS WEEK!

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes about my health! I'm still battling a bit of a cold. It's lightened up quite a lot, but I still have a pretty hoarse voice and need NyQuil each night to prevent coughing fits. I had to miss Easter mass, which was a bit of a bummer, but have been getting lots of well-needed R & R in preparation for the big day. We've also checked some big to do's off the list. I had my hair trial this morning (loved it!), picked up our wedding rings from the jeweler, and met with Liene, who is the ultimate wedding logistics guru. I can honestly say that I am still stress-free about the whole event, especially after the productive chat my mother and I had with Liene. I don't know how to ever thank you enough, Liene!!!!!!!

Tomorrow brings a meeting with the florist, more quality time with the parents, and hopefully a much-needed pedicure! I'm also full of excitement to see Mr. Wonderful, who arrives late tomorrow evening.

We've had wonderful weather and smooth sailing so far, cannot wait to see what the next few days bring!

I'm missing you all, and can't wait to catch up more soon!
