Oh Shit, I Have to Do WHAT?!

For the first time, I am genuinely experiencing a time crunch.  Now I know how much I really should have done while I was still in Chicago.  While I now have the ability to look at venues, I lack time to research, and as much as I really want to get the ball rolling on the wedding, getting a job and making our living space livable are just more important right now.  For both of us.  Plus Daniel has to study for the BAR, and so once again I seem to have just enough more time to be the one that all the wedding stuff falls on.  Great.

Things that really must be done before the end of October:

Book a venue
Open a joint bank account
Obtain money from contributor(s?)
Figure out my own money contribution situation
Finalize initial guest list
Create and send out STDs
Obtain contact info for everyone who will receive a STD
Finalize wedding theme
Figure out my dress situation
Finalize wedding party and officiant
Choose official date, haha

And that's just the wedding list.  My "things to do in order to survive until (and after) the end of October" list is much longer.   Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!


  1. We have a shit ton of things we need to get done when we get back to California. Dave needs to register for the selective services for some stupid reason, I am changing my name, he needs a bank account. It is definitely overwhelming. But the In'N'Out makes it all better.

  2. Okay, first off - your list is out of order... you really should pick a date before you send out save the dates. ;) I kid. But anyway, I really want to help. Send stuff my way, and let's figure out a time for me to meet you somewhere to talk, yeah?

  3. Dude, where are you guys living? Andrew is starting to get worried that you guys aren't going to settle Bayside afterall, thus spoiling our dream of being happy neighbors whose kids grow up together.

  4. Dude, you guys have not lived in the United States for over 3 years. We are so closer to the Bay Area than you.

    We don't know where we're going to end up, but for now, everything rests on free rent until we get jobs, and for the next few years, where Daniel and I can get decent jobs is going to be the main factor in our location.
