I am so excited!!! I booked our honeymoon today; we are going to be spending 5 amazing nights in Pue...
Well, They are finished!!!!
Today is exactly 2 months and I have been working on these
invites for a very long time, so I am very happy to have them done!
They should've probably been in the mail today, but I was very
frustrated yesterday with my printer, and after about a billion trips
to staples it is now working again and I am just finishing them up!
I think mailing them one day late won't be too huge of a deal :)
I thought I was going to be so excited to finally get them done, but
now I have this weird pit feeling in my stomach about mailing
Who would have thought that just thinking about mailing the invites
would make my stomach churn!
She found her dress today!
Soon to be mil found her dress.
Its pretty and I really like it and the color of the dress
will be perfect!
I'm just glad she found one that I like! :) I was a little worried
I can't believe it!!
The days just keep moving closer!!!
OMG!! Ladies I am having a nervous breakdown this morning!
My to do list just keeps on going, and it seems like every other
week I have a new list of stuff to get done!!
We only have 10 WEEKS til the wedding!!
I do have Fridays off, so I get a lot of my wedding list done on
those days, but my goodness, it feels like the last few weekends
have been crazy!! We just run around like chickens with our heads
cut off! Last weekend we got a lot of stuff done off our list, but
there is still so much more to do!!
Also!! I just realized that my shower invites haven't been sent out
yet and the shower is on March 14th!! Thats 2 weeks away!
So, I call my friend that is suppose to be getting the shower together
and getting the invites out and do you know what she said to me.......
"Don't worry about it, they will be out by saturday!!"
DON"T WORRY!!!! My shower is in 2 weeks and no one has invites
I think they should have been sent out by now! I make plans 2 weeks in advance sometimes!
I don't know, I guess I just needed to vent because I am actually
starting to feel better!
Well, at least I don't feel like puking right now, and thats a plus!!! :)
Thanks girls for listening and for all your help through out the past
I love being able to cross another thing off our list!!!
We finally picked out what the guys will be wearing!!
I have been stressing about this for quite some time
now! I didn't know what I wanted but I knew I didn't
We ended up finding a great tan suit that both Jeff and
I feel in love with! I'm glad he liked them too, because
he can be so picky on some stuff (And usually its dumb
stuff that he throws his fits about!)
We found them at Jims Formal Wear they are the
Alfresco Suits and they were only $100 to rent!! I thought
that was a great deal, because a lot of places charge you
for a full tux whether you have the full get up or not!!
We decided to have different colored ties for the different
guys. They will all have the same design on the ties, but
the colors will be different, Except for Jeff he will be in a
striped green! And the rest of the guys will be in a polka
dot designed tie :)
The groomsmen will be in the green polka dot ties
The ushers will be in the pink polka dot ties
The dads will be in the polka dot ties too, but in white!
I also have the ringbearer in pink, but he is not wearing a
tie he will be in a bowtie!! He is going to look sooo CUTE!!!
Our Flower Girl
I found her dress!
I am very excited! I have been so worried about finding
her dress! It has been a battle, she's nine and most
flower girl dresses are not made for nine year olds, they
are more for three and four year olds.
I was talking with some friends over the weekend and I
was telling them that I was thinking of just trying to find her
a cute sundress to wear for the wedding and they all thought
that was a great idea so I started looking!
Our niece is in love with the store Justice for Girls and they
just opened up a new store here in our town!
I went to look yesterday and I found the cutest dress and
it will be perfect for our wedding! I also found her jewelry
and shoes and a couple cute presents for standing up.
I am so happy to beable to cross that off my list!
If any of you pink brides are looking for a cute white dress
with a pink sachet you can check it out on
For all you other colored brides I was also thinking you
could just buy a different color sachet for the dress and it
would look just as cute!!
Here are some pics.......
Have a great day ladies!!!!
Ask a Question
I tried posting this earlier this morning and when I went
to check if anyone commented my post was gone?!?
How does that happen? How does your posts get deleted
anyways here is my post :)
Hi ladies, I was wanting all of your opinions on this!
I live cross country from all of my family and a lot of
friends. My family and friends are wanting me to come
home for my bridal shower, so everyone can see me and
for those who are unable to make it to the wedding, they
can see me too.
Well, my sister and a great friend of mine are starting
to plan the shower and we have been talking about having
a Coin Shower, ONLY because I live 5 states away and
I won't bebale to drive because with the wedding this
year I just can't take off anymore extra time from work.
We have been doing some research on it and we have
heard a lot of good things about it and a lot of bad things
People tend to be annoyed and may even not show up,
when asked for money. I guess I don't know what else to
do, because I can't fly all of the presents home.
We have even talked about putting a cute poem on the
invites that just say I live so far away and its hard to get
presents home if you want to give coins its greatly
appreciated or just come and hang out and don't feel
obligated to bring presents or coins just come spend the
day with us!
What do you ladies all think? Or do any of you have any other
ideas we could use instead of a coin shower.
Jeff and I actually lived on our own before we met, so when
we moved in together we had doubles of a lot of things
and really when it comes down to it, we really don't need
a whole lot of stuff. I think I would prefer to just have people
come and hang out than feel stressed about having to bring
a present or money.
I finally have it all booked!!
I am so excited, I had such a hard time finding a perfect
company to rent from and I finally found them!!
I was getting so bummed out that I wouldn't beable to
find a company that was close enough to us to rent from!
I found one down in denver and they will travel up to Loveland
for our wedding!
Here is the website if any of you girls live in the area and
want to check them out!
The owner has been very helpful with all of my needs (I can be
kind of needy)
They also have a guestbook table with the photobooth and it
will print out 2 photos and one is a favor for the guest and
the other one is for the guests to use to make a page in our
I am just so excited!! You can all probably tell!
The photobooth is the one thing that NO ONE can mess
I have had a lot of unsolicited advice while planning this wedding
and most of it I have been just rolling with and letting
others have there way, but not with this!
This is mine!! And if anyone says anything about it they are not
getting an invitation :)
41 pounds GONE!!
Yay! I got on the scale today and I am now done 41 pounds!
I am so excited!
I tried on my dress yesterday and you can tell that it is fitting
I was one of those crazy brides that bought the dress a couple
sizes smaller :)
When I lost my mom a couple years ago, I quit my job and just
laid around for a whole year! I really let myself go and I am just so glad that I am able to get back into the swing of things!
I am finally starting to feel good about myself again and it is a
I still would like to lose another 22 pounds before the wedding
I have about 14 weeks before the wedding, so hopefully I'll
make it there!
And Here We GO!
How Do I handle this?!?!
Ok, I'm a little annoyed with my soon to be mother in law!
Here is a little background:
A few months ago I had discovered there was going to
be a full moon on the night of our wedding. FH and I
thought it would be so cool to have a moonlight ceremony,
so we start to plan a wedding around the idea of having
a late ceremony. We were thinking it would be great if
we had the ceremony around 8 and then have appetizers
and dessert for food at the reception.
I have been so excited about this, I talked with a cater and
she made up a really great menu for some appetizers and
a desserts. I love the idea, gave her a deposit. That was
almost 2 months ago!!!
FH's family was all in town for the holidays and there was lots
talking about the wedding and what our plans were, so I was
telling everybody about our ceremony and the food plans.
Well, FH's mother got mad at me and stopped talking to me
for the rest of CHRISTMAS DAY!!!
She ended up calling me the next day and said that we
needed to talk. She said that she feels she is also a host of this wedding and that she thinks people will expect to fed and that
we need to have dinner served!!
Then at the end of the conversation she says, I will stand by
you in whatever you decide but I think you need to serve dinner!
I have never had a disagreement with my soon to be MIL!
I don't know what to do, I really don't want to have dinner
served, and most people i've talked with about this thought
it was a really neat idea to have appetizers and desserts.
She also said "your going to want people to hang out and
not just show up for cake and leave."
Now why in the heck does she think just because we are not
planning on serving dinner, people aren't going to hang out!
I just feel so backed in a corner. I don't want to fight with her,
there is no reason too!
I'll have the stupid dinner if thats what she wants, because I
just don't care enough to argue with her, BUT
I upsets me that I was so excited to have my own day and my
own touches on my wedding that make it different, And she
waited until 4 months before the wedding, to tell me that she
wants to have a dinner!
Almost 30 Pounds
I got on the scale today and I've lost 27.4 pounds!
I am so excited!!
My hubby to be isn't doing as well as I am, but then again
he doesn't have to be a Bride in a Wedding Dress :)
I have been so good sticking to my "new lifestyle change"
I've been working out almost daily and I've been making
better choices with the foods I am eating!
Its just so nice to see the hard work paying off
