To do: the next five days

1. Find and pack cute outfit for Saturday night’s pre-wedding shindig at Lucy’s parents’ summerhouse.
2. Manicure and pedicure.
3. Find the guts to get a Mystic Tan, so as to not horrify wedding attendees with my pasty skin and the really bad farmer’s tan on my arms.
4. Bake blueberry muffins to bring to Saturday night’s pre-wedding shindig.
5. Locate/purchase incredibly adorable purse that will match my bridesmaid dress and draw many compliments and envious stares.
6. Blog about fear of the Mystic Tan.
7. Purchase wedding gift.
8. Work out. For fitness. I am so already the skinniest bridesmaid. And I like it.
9. Actually get Mystic Tan.
10. Mull and pout over the fact that I’m the only bridesmaid who doesn’t have a boyfriend. Or even a measly date.
11. Blog about the fact that I’m the only bridesmaid who doesn’t have a boyfriend.
12. Blog about the fact that I’m the only bridesmaid who doesn’t have a date.
13. Blog about the fact that I’m the only bridesmaid who is a virgin.
14. Blog about the fact that I will die a virgin.
15. Wonder, on a regular basis, if I am expected to make a speech. Have not been told that I’m the maid of honor. Neither has anyone else. But I’m the one standing next to Lucy during the ceremony. And another one of the bridesmaids said something, in passing, about my making a speech.
16. Write witty, charming and memorable speech just in case.
17. Memorize witty, charming and memorable speech so I don’t look stupid.
18. Tell everyone I know about how random Lucy’s wedding will be.
19. Get excited.
20. Marry off my bestest friend.

Don't even sweat the blogging part; just get ready to have a good time. There'll be plenty of time for blogging again when it's all over.

Don't forget:
21: Enjoy the Day!!
22. Make a million mental notes of what to do / what not to do for when your day comes round (because it will!)

Am totally scared, too!

I've been told that it doesn't last long at all.

If I was smart, I would've done a test run a month ago. But I'm not smart.

Consider me your test run!

Have a great time!!! I've never done a spray tan, so I can't give any advice on that one. Enjoy the wedding, make it great for the bride and have fun!
