So here I am on my last day of work as Ms. Z – I'm a teacher so kids are all asking me what my new last name will be and can they still call me Ms. Z. I say yes, because I remember it being really hard when I was younger and teachers would get married. The old last name will fade out eventually, I'll get more used to hearing Mrs. H and being introduced that way. What a weird thing it is to get rid of your last name. In my heart, I'll always be a Z. I walked into a nice surprise in my office this afternoon from one of my co-workers. It was a small little gesture, but it made me feel appreciated and even more excited for the day to end!
I feel very lucky after going through this process to have had a fiance that was involved and didn't just tell me to figure it out and do what I wanted. We worked together on a lot of projects and I was always checking with him for feedback. This is what our football Sundays have looked like over the past two weeks, luckily our team performed terribly last Sunday, so we didn't miss too much while we were cutting and assembling our menus and programs. I feel very blessed to have experienced this with him and that he will have had a hand in how everything turns out and our wedding will be representation of both of our styles.
Thank you all for your supportive comments throughout the planning process. I am so looking forward to our wedding and seeing how everything comes together. I can't wait to marry the love of my life, have our first dance together, enjoy our honeymoon and then finally live together. It's all going to be so exciting! Oh yeah, did I tell you that I broke out in a rash last Friday? Doctor thinks it could be an allergic reaction or just nerves, so I'm taking prednisone until the wedding day and hoping it works some magic on my rash. I don't feel that stressed or nervous, but our bodies have weird ways of handling things sometimes. I'm ready to be sipping champagne with my girls and be getting my nails done – ya know!?!?
See you on the other side of the wedding! I'll be a Mrs. and have a new wonderful husband.
Any last minute advice on what to do to make sure to enjoy my wedding day as much as possible?
