some things you've missed

No, you aren't totally to blame for missing out on the thousands of little details that that have been happening in my life over the past few months (geez). I haven't been sharing, but not because of a lack of effort on your part. Every sweet demanding text message has made me smile and giggle, and then I quickly make a mental note that I'm still not blogging today. Being that it's Wednesday, and the blog world is full of wedding posts--I refuse to be outdone. So besides teaching kindergarteners how to say their s's and r's, here is what I have been up to the since August. 

Choose a date.
Book the church. 
Book the reception venue. 
Book a band.
Take engagement pictures.
Pick out Save the Dates. 
Buy wedding bands. 
Book wedding day transportation (to be completed next week)
Find and order a fabulous pair of shoes. 
Order bridesmaids gifts.
Finalize the guest list. 
Pick out Invitations.  
Order a guest book. (to be completed next week)
Block off hotel rooms. (waiting for calls to be returned) 
Book a honeymoon. (we've chosen a destination! woo hoo!)
Finish our wedding website. 
Meet with Amanda, the wedding planner/savior. 
Order Saves the Dates. (to be completed next week)
Get the ball rolling on bridesmaids dresses. 
Decide on a wedding cake. 

See, I can do this too. 

Two special packages with my name on them have been floating around the country this week. My bridesmaids' gifts arrived today--and I am absolutely giddy about them. And another HUGE package will be arriving at my house on Friday. I'll give you a hint--one of the contents rhymes with "press" and the other rhymes with "nail." Got it? Good. 

And on a completely unrelated note, I'm going to be the proud new owner of an Iphone 5 on Friday afternoon. See ya later Stone Ages. Instagram, anyone?

where i've been

Having dinner with dad, 

and going to pep rallies, 

and celebrating Bulldog football victories, 

with friends that are close by, 

and old friends, 

and best friends. 

I've been being a bridesmaid, 

and being a bridesmaid, 

and being a bride. 

Be back soon.
