125 Days Out

So if you remember this post I was going a little crazy.  I have really tried to start prioritiziing things that need to get done and I am making progress.  I made myself stay home yesterday afternoon and we knocked out some more of the invititions.  Those are taking a while but not near as long as those crazy save the dates.  I think we may make our target of November 1st.  I hope anyways.  I just need to really focus on them this week and I think we will be good!
So I started with this and now I have a few things checked off...hallajeuah!
- Finish Corsages for moms, grandmas and speakers,
- finish last 3 bouquets and 1 toss bouquet
-Make "Here comes the bride" sign
-Make appoinment for Bridal pictures
-Book Baker
-Order and complete construction of Wedding Invitations
-Pick out Grooms/Groomsmen Atire-Pick out flower girl and Ring Bearer Atire
-Get Passports
- Aaron's Ring!Ok, so not really.  But I got 3 things done.  I am wondering if I can get the rest done by the end of this month. 
I have to admit though.  With the new addition of our family. I am having a hard time focusing when all I want to do is lay around and cuddle with my fur babies.

Custest fur-babies ever! 

So I plan on knocking this list out of the ball park this week.  OH and I am super excited because we have our engagment picture shoot on Wednesday.  I am really going to try to watch what I eat the next few days so I am sure to look my absolute best!
Yall have a great Monday!

Its time For a Shower...

My Bridal Shower that is!  Ah, I was so excited about my shower today and I just could feel the love from all the wonderful women in my life.  I had a such a good time hanging out with everyone and laughing and drinking yummy punch!

I'll let the pictures do the talking.....

I was so excited that so many family and friends showed up. And I was so excited to share my special day with them and for some to finally meet my future hubby.  He popped in at the end to help load up all the gifts and grace all of us ladies with his good looks :)

I Spy Game

About a month ago when I met with my Wedding Cordinator from Lovely Weddings.  Kayleigh had suggested I make an ISpy Game to put on my tables since I am basically DIYing a majority of our wedding.   I decided to give it a go one day when I had some down time and this is the result. 

I have them all printed on cardstock and when I recieve my shipment from cards and pockets I plan on adding a lapis cardboard to the back to add a boarder.  Do you think our guests will actually partake in this ISpy game?  Do you think they will enjoy?

I sure hope so and I am hoping they can catch a few memorable shots!  Thanks Kayleigh!

Engagement Inspiration

With our engagement pictures right around the corner I have kinda gone into panic mode.  What do we wear?  What "look" are we going for?  Do I wanna wear a dress?  Should we dress casual?  Where should we take our pictures?

So many questions and only a few weeks to decide.  That being said I had some down time yesterday so I came up with a few inspiration boards for our pictures.  I am hoping that we can get kind get pictures that a cute, classy and fun.  I also want a  few that are casual, relaxed, and us!

So I present you our outfit options:
1. DSW, 2. Modcloth, 3. Express

As you can tell, I really like Mod Cloth, DSW and Express.  The reason I chose so many outfits from the same stores is to save on shipping charges.  I am not a big gotothestore shopper.  I prefer to online it if I can and as much as possible.  If it doesn't fit or look right I have no problem returning it.  But, lucky for me most of the time, items I buy are dead on perfect~ is a gift!!

Of the inspiration me and Aaron are really diggin on the first and the last.  I think the pops of yellow and blue are perfect and I have the most amazing blanket that will work perfect for some cute picnic pictures perhaps!
The last slide with the grays are perfect as we both look great in gray because of our blue eyes.  And I think any man in flannel looks good!
You think I am on the right track with our engagement shoot or I need to keep on looking?

He's HOME!!!

Aaron made it home finally!  He arrived on Thursday morning.  Go figure that I had to be at work that morning so I couldnt be there to pick him up.  He took a nice nap on the new King Size Bed and waited for me to arrive after work.  We enjoyed some yummy lunch and then just lounged around the rest of the evening- as the power went out from the first rain we have had in months! 
I have to say it was a nice romantic way to spend our first eveing together, no lights, no tv.  Just us- and the ipod player, candlelight and snuggle time!

I am so glad your finally home babe!  144 Days to go til we say I Do!!

145 Days to Go!

I can't belive we are at the 145 day mark.  We still have a ton to do but I must say I am feeling accomplished!  This week we need to get our passports and then Sunday me and the Mr. are going to check out some suits for him and the groomsmen.  I also still need to make like another 200 flowers.  Well...hopefully not that many but I am pretty sure that I will need about that for decorations.  The plan is to make them the next few Sundays while Aaron watches footbal. 

With time ticking away I know I need to keep on top of things.  On the top of my head all of this needs to be complete THIS month before the hustle and bustle of the holidays start.
- Finish Corsages for moms, grandmas and speakers,

So we have a lot left to do.  Lets hope I dont go insane this month!
