51 Days & 62 Days

51 days until I am married! I can't wait!

I have promised myself that I will get as much as humanly possible done BEOFRE the big day. I want to be able to wake up the next morning and actually remember the day before. I don't want to be one of those brides that is so stressed out and rushing around so much that I don't take time to enjoy my day. I want to remember my wedding from my memory, not just the pictures.

I'm going to (hopefully) get up around 8 so that I have time to take a relaxing bath before having to jump into everything. Hopefully I will have time to enjoy breakfast with my parents too. I want to have time to sit around with the girls while we are getting ready and talk and have a good time. I'm getting the receiving line out of the way at the church so I can dance with my new husband and visit with friends and family at the reception, but still have time to stop and eat and enjoy my cake. I am determined not to be a bridezilla on my wedding day. I may be up until that day (I hope not), but not on that day. I want it to be a pleasant experience for everyone.

62 days until CHRISTMAS! I started on my Christmas cards tonight. Yes, I must be crazy. Not only is it October, but I should be working on wedding stuff, NOT addressing Christmas cards that won't be sent out for another month, almost 2. Oh well, I enjoy it. I love Christmas. I told Steven that as soon as Halloween is over, Christmas decorations go up! yay!

4 years

On October 11, 2007, Steven and I had been together for 4 years! To celebrate we went to the zoo.

AND - Steven surprised me with THREE dozen red and white roses! He's such a sweetie. I think I'll keep him.

Honeymoon in Music City!

Our honeymoon is booked! Yay! We're staying in town Friday night, and heading off to Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday!

I can't wait to see all the Christmas lights and decorations! We'll also be there in time to catch the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman!

How time flies...

In 60 days I will be Mrs. Anderson. Wow, it seems like just last week we were wondering through jewelry stores looking at rings! It's so hard to believe it is actually October. Everything has gone by so fast this year.
The last several months have been rather stressful. I feel like we have been hit with every curve ball imagineable. I do feel a little better now that I have a few things accomplished, though.

Things Checked off the To Do List:
Dress alterations
Hair & make up appointments made
Shoes bought
New hair clip
Bridal portrait and frame
Groomsmen fitted - (minus one)
Thank you cards ordered
Flower girl / ring bearer gifts
Reception menu
Cake desins
Invitations sent - CHECK! Yay! Well, we still have 3 or 4 to send out, but for the most part they are done. That is the biggest relief ever!

And of course...the dreaded list of things that are STILL on the To Do List:

Order guestbook
Order Steven's cufflinks
Parents' gifts
Groomsmen gifts
Finish Bridesmaid gifts
"Something Borrowed"
"Something Old"
Design and print programs
Honeymoon Reservations (Yeah, we definitely need to get on that one! Eeek)
Aisle runner
Finish flowers
Finish aisle decorations
Finish slideshow (Almost done! yay!)
Rehearsal dinner reservations

Well, at least the list is getting shorter.
