    • Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat

    spending oodles of time on the phone and running around!

    But, I had a consultation with the hairstylist and makeup girl, and spend time in a lingerie shop getting treated like a queen. That part was fun 🙂

    Picked up my dress from alterations yesterday, did last minute craft shopping with my mom.  Today I’m cleaning the house, so we can come home to a clean house after the honeymoon.  Tomorrow I’ll be packing and Tuesday we’ll be making the 17 hr drive to Pittsburgh where our wedding will be 🙂  The rest of the week will be last minute wedding things, hair trial, some crafts that we didn’t want to do here and transport to Pittsburgh and lots of fun family time. 

     

    Honestly, we are so ready for it to all be over! lol Can’t wait until 5 am Monday when we get on the plane for our honeymoon!

    Finishing the table numbers, collecting stuff, writing the table plan and generally getting all the stuff together to take to my Mum’s. I remember it being a rushed week.

    i think i might buy a puzzle to put together the week of the wedding or start a new book thats sitting on my kindle. i need something to tire me out. i will probably run a lot that week.

    I specifically prefer a 2year engagement so I can take time to plan and DIY a little each month so ideally everything is completely done, organized and just needs to be put in the car one to two months prior to the wedding.  That way all well have to do is a few last minute tasks and have lots of time to hang out with family in town and just relax
