23 days to go!

And still so much to do!

I am pretty excited that I'm getting more wedding packages in the mail lately. All the things I have ordered have started arriving. Last week, I got my t-shirt (for rehearsal day!) in and the guestbook. I love them both.

I received an e-mail yesterday that Steven's cufflinks have been shipped. That is a BIG relief. I was pretty worried they wouldn't be here in time because we waited so late to order them.

I'm getting more and more excited about Nashville. I can't wait to take a carriage ride through all the Christmas lights. Also, we have 3rd row seats to the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium. I'm super excited about that!

Noritake Chatham

This is the china set that I was given by Nanny, my grandmother. This isn't actually a picture of my set, but it is exactly the same. I have a complete set of place settings for 8, and the serving pieces. I think I still need to find the tidbit tray and maybe a few other accessory pieces are out there. I'm just terrified I'm going to break it.

This is what I found out when I googled it.
Manufacturer Status: Discontinued 
Manufactured: 1954-1964
Pattern: #5502

I can see the end!

With only 26 days to go, we are working pretty hard at all this wedding stuff. We have actually accomplished a few more things.

The guest book should arrive on Monday! I can hardly wait to see it.
We are decorating the tree at church on Monday night.
Mom has designed the menus, so now we just have to print them.
I have all the kids' gifts bought. Just have to wrap them now.
The favors are halfway finished! 

My Bachelorette Party is Friday night! I'm so excited. I'm not sure what all Lauren has planned, but I'm sure it is going to be a lot of fun.

Minnie Pearl!

Our newest addition has been named Minnie Pearl.
She had her first trip to the vet today. He said she is approximately 10 weeks old and appears to be a Red Heeler.

Ramblings from Bridezilla...

We ordered the guestbook! Finally! I was really beginning to get worried that we wouldn't be able to get it in time. It should arrive around Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see it!

I just ordered Steven's awesome cufflinks! I hope we can get them in time. They should be e-mailing me tomorrow to confirm the order and coordinate the pictures.

Kathi ordered Hanna's dress! It should be in this weekend. I can hardly wait to see her in it. She's going to be adorable!

Last weekend, Lauren and Shana threw a lingerie shower for me. I had so much fun! And I was SOOOO happy that all but one of my 8 bridesmaids were able to come! I love my girls! I'm pretty sure I have the best friends in the world.

What kind of person decides to participate in a yard sale a month before their wedding? Um, apparently crazy ones like me do. Saturday I'm getting up bright and early to join Lauren, her mom, and Ma for a yard sale. I must be insane. I still don't have all of my stuff together either. I was working on it last week, but it got put to the side so that I could clean the house and get ready for Ashley's bachelorette party. Which, by the way, was AWESOME. Another of my insane moments - I agreed to host her party at my house, again a month before my own wedding. That's ok though. It turned out great and we had a GREAT time. Pretty sure glow bowling was the best part of the night.

I know they're around here somewhere...

Where on Earth did September and October go? I'm pretty sure I never saw either of them. The last thing I remember is...well, getting engaged in March! haha, I'm pretty sure my brain flew out of my head at that moment and has yet to return. It is probably on vacation in Tahiti with September and October at this very moment. Well, okay I saw the end of October. Unfortunately it left poor Steven with a very undeserved black eye. Oh well, he's all better now. Kind of.

I think he's getting a cold/possible sinus infection. He actually got up and took medicine on his own will last night. That's never good. It means he's really sick.

We are hard at work on wedding stuff. We meaning my mom and myself ;-) With only 35 days to go, we have accomplished a lot, but we've still got a lot to do!

-Mom is working on favors at this very moment. (She's wonderful! I love my Mommy.)
-Dad mailed off the check for the photographer's balance this week. (I heart my Daddy too!)
-I finalized my hair and make up appointments for the big day. (Ally and Jenny Lynn will have me looking fabulous!)
-We finalized the catering menu and cake designs! I am so pumped about Steven's cake!
I don't even care what mine looks like anymore. I just want his to be perfect!
-I've been working hard on thank you notes. I'm behind, but I promise they WILL get done.
If you haven't gotten yours yet, I'm really sorry. It's somewhere between the to-be-written list and your mailbox.
