Who knew that the simple act of arranging our engagement photo shoot would send my anxiety through the roof?
What to wear?
Should we use props?
Do we incorporate our colors in the shoot?
Should we take the fur mongrels and include them?
My mother has now dubbed herself “Momzilla” in lieu of ‘budget control’. (You can roll your eyes now with me too!) So Momzilla, in an effort to keep her and my father’s minds off the HUGE gaping hole in our lives and hearts at the inability to see, speak with or visit my beautiful God Daughters – Momzilla has thrown herself into the whole crazy wedding planning thing.
It started with props. Yep, you heard me correctly, P R O P S. Apparently the INTERNET is rife with wedding ideas galore and Momzilla is finding them all! She has managed to procure a variety of “props” for our engagement photo shoot. Which is sweet, but when did posing for a few pictures turn into a huge production?
The good news now is that due to the temperatures climbing well into the 100’s this weekend; our photo shoot has been re-scheduled. THANK GOD! I was NOT looking forward to wrangling the fur mongrels in this heat, or trying to playfully coax my fiancée into relaxing enough to actually have a good shoot. I’m not worried about me, I’m a natural ham. LOL.
For now the anxiety levels are back in check. Engagement photo shoot is pushed back and all I’m facing this weekend is the final papers and assignments before finals week starts next week. I don’t know what I was thinking by scheduling the photo shoot on a weekend where I had a huge paper due in both classes, but you all know me – I’m NOT always the brightest star in the sky.
Here’s hoping you find a safe and fun way to beat the heat this weekend. I can assure you I will have my nose buried deep in school work and if I get lucky, maybe here and there I will find time for some fun.
Lots of love,
