The Most Beautiful Wedding Surprise

Yall, I'm getting married in 87 days! Seriously, where does the time go? I swear it feels like just last week we were getting engaged and picking a wedding date that seemed so very far away (16 months to be exact). And now we are here: 2 months, 4 weeks, and 1 day away from what will be the happiest day of my life.
For the last year I have been, for the most part, stress free. I mean what is the to worry about when you have a mother like mine and the ultimate dream wedding coordinator? Between the two of them, they have this handled. However, it seems like within the last week or so the inevitable bridal stress has hit me like a ton of bricks (and has possibly been the culprit of my sleepless nights). I'm not really sure why the sudden stress (seriously, my mother has this under control), but I've found myself making never-ending lists in my head of everything that needs to be done.
Alas, Mom to the rescue! I emailed her yesterday to tell her about the stress and never-ending lists and we immediately made plans to meet for drinks after work and talk all things wedding. I seriously don't know what I would do without that woman.
Naturally, mom did what mom does best and reassured me that in fact, she has this under control. Thanks, mom! We went through my to-do list one by one and made plans to check every single item off the list. When we got down to the "buy wedding shoes" item on the list my mom pulled out a package and told me to open it. As soon as I tore the wrapping paper off I saw the most beautiful logo in all the land and immediately started to cry. My mom and dad surprised me with the most gorgeous Christian Louboutin pumps that I've ever seen for me to wear on my wedding day! Owning a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes has been on my bucket list for years, and I am ecstatic that I can actually check that item off my list!
Obviously holding a pair of shoes like those in my hands did wonders for my stress level. What was even stressed about again? The hard part is going to be keeping those pretty little pumps tucked away in the box until the wedding day. Ahh! I love them! Thank you, mom and dad, for continuing to add to the wedding of my dreams! You two are the best a girl could ever hope and dream for.

87 days and counting...
