Okay team- 10 days and counting until the big day. Needless to say, I am losing my mind. I can't remember my backpack for school, lost my retainer, my medicine, etc. It's pretty annoying. I'm sure its annoying for everyone around me too!!!

Chip and I got the apartment set up this weekend (mostly) and he is now living there until the wedding. I'll post pictures when I feel it's cute enough ;)

Probably won't post again til after the wedding! So long

Busy bees

Sorry I am a bad blogger. Life is crazy busy as you can imagine. This Saturday is the big move in day at the apartment! Please pray for that to go smoothly because we all know how stressful moving is. Also, I've started the process of interviewing with schools for Teach For America for my placement in Metro... please pray that this process is swift... I'm not very good at patience... but God is teaching me. Chip is still loving work (Praise God!) and we are just so ready to be married! We can't stop thinking about how nice it will be to not have to drive home at the end of the night when we are done hanging out haha! I probably won't be any better about posting more often as the wedding is in 17 days!! But after the wedding I will do better!!!

In one word I am: exhausted. Monday through Friday I am working, or at school, most days both. This is from 8-5. Then I come home. Do homework, lots and lots of homework. Then I try and work on last minute wedding details (did you know there are a TRILLION?) Oh yes, then I try and find time to spend quality time with my fiance. And the only thing that repeatedly runs through my mind is "is it over yet????"

I am SO grateful to have my parents pay for the wedding, which will be utterly fabulous. I am SO thankful for our wedding party and for our sweet friends. I am SO thankful that it will all be over in 31 days. Why? Because then I can sleep. Seriously, I wake up in the morning begging for just 5 more minutes or think "what would really be so bad about just sleeping in today?" Let me tell you. I have families depending on me. I have adorable kids that I babysit for who quite frankly, I need far more than they need me. I cannot tell you how many times Charlotte has completely turned by day around just by saying "hold you Kati?" I have classes that I have to pass so I can graduate in May (and all of you know that when I say pass, I mean make an A in, because that is just how I am wired). I have a family of my own to love and to soak up every single minute with because they are my favorite people in the world. I have a bajillion things on my plate and the more I think about it the more I realize I have been taking all of them for granted.

So truly, I am grateful. So grateful. I just can't wait to sleep. And to not be engaged anymore. And to be Kati Wooten. And to drink a margarita in Mexico while snacking on some chips and salsa. I can hear the ocean waves now...
