Awwww… you Grandpa is sooo sweet!


Darling Husband great grandpa got us a bowl for our “hope chest” after we got engaged. At 93 he went to Crate and Barrel walked across the mall to 1 Sunglass Hut and then was told to go to the other Sunglass Hut on the other side of the mall where my HD was. SOO CUTE!! I love old men. Wink

Grandpa’s are the best, I really miss mine.  He would have loved the FH.

My favorite part this week was when my Future Sister-In-Law called me and booked her hotel rooms for her whole family (sisters, children, mother, and themselves) and wants to come up a few days early to help with everything.  They live about an hour away and she told me she will come up any weekend to help me with anything I need.  I guess it is really that they are jazzed for the wedding, which a year ago I would never have guessed.

@tksjewelry: I really miss mine too he was like my Dad.

My favourite part has got to be going yesterday to see my dress and choose a veil and shoes πŸ˜‰ I also ordered Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and my Mum got her outfit too.

Getting random packages sprinkled in throughout the week–BM gifts, small random reception pieces, Out of Town bag stuff……

I told myself it would be less stressful if I stayed away from the “big” stuff…oddly enough, it’s the small minutiae that give me anxiety!

I don’t really have anything to add about my week of planning.  I just wanted to say that’s a really cute and sweet story, definitely cherish his involvement.  I miss my grandfather; that sounds like something he would have liked to do with me.

That’s adorable. πŸ™‚ My grandpa’s 80th birthday is tomorrow. (WOW…)

I don’t have a sweet wedding moment of the week, haha, but I did call and get a price on a wedding band enhancer thing from the place we got my e-ring. That was sort of exciting, because it was FI’s suggestion. I hadn’t thought of it. He gets major points.

Awwwww πŸ™‚ I just wanted to chime in on how sweet that story is!

I think I’m at the point where wedding planning is either really high or really low…lol. My favorite part this week was finalizing invitations to be sent out in the near future. (What a HOLY CRAP WEDDING IS COMING SOON feeling!) and finding out my dress will come in any day now πŸ™‚

That is a wonderful story. I lost my grandma when I was 13. I often wonder how it would be to have her here with me now.

My highlight this week was finding out that we won’t have to move our ceremony from our church. Long story but great news!! Invitations were on hold until we figured out that :little” piece.

I’m sure you will have more wonderful stories to share.

Aw.  There’s been a couple of things which felt really good to get done this week.  We asked our friend to officiate last Friday and he agreed and we hung out with him again on Thursday.  It’s just really cool to think that he is going to be the one to marry us.

I also booked a wine tasting for some of our guests (not an official event, but something for people to take part in if they want the day before the wedding).  YAYE wine tasting.

Am going dress shopping in a couple hours, though.  So that may be a new exciting moment for the week.  Or it could just result in yet another indecisive weddingbee post.
