I’m Excited!

Soooooo excited! 10.10.10 is almost here and even though I am still overwhelmed with all that needs to be done, I’m excited.  This past weekend I was a bridesmaid in another one of my college roommate’s wedding.  Emily Rice is now Emily Baxter and she made the most beautiful bride!!! The strangest part of their wedding day was hearing people tell me… “It’s your turn next!!”… AH! Wow. I’m next! I’m the next one to be married and that’s CRAZY!!! Having a long engagement sometimes makes the wedding seem like a far off fairy tell that never seems to get any closer. Well, it’s closer!!! It’s less than two months away!

It’s starting…

… to feel more and more real! 10.10.10 has seemed so long away this whole year… until this summer. With less than two months to go, we are scrambling. We’re trying to get home improvement projects done…. now on TWO houses and we’re still planning details and working with vendors. It’s coming together! With every little step, it is feeling more and more real! Last night, some of our closest family friends got together and threw us a Bride and Groom shower. It was wonderful!!! Church friends that we have known our whole lives came together to celebrate and shower us with gifts! Talk about fun!!!

….today is my self-declared “day off”.  You know, because I am my own boss and I lay down the law for this business! I’ve decided that today there will be no more editing, emails or albums.  Nothing. Today is a day to be excited and focused on the fact that I’m getting married! In like 60 some days!! AH!  It’s very easy to get wrapped up in everything I have to do and forget just how exciting this time is. By the time I normally finish a work day, I am rushing to get wedding stuff done and I find myself driving to ShortPump, again. I live 40+ minutes away from real civilization….. and real civilization means having a Walmart nearby! I have to drive 4o minutes to run errands

Missing it.

I miss college.  I don’t miss the classes or the papers or the stress, just the people… those amazing people.  I have heard that you meet the most amazing friends in college and that was so true for Michael and I.  Our friends feel like our family and we consider them family.  College for us wasn’t just about hanging out and having a good time, we formed relationships with people that we know we’re going to keep in touch with forever.  I mean that. F-O-R-E-V-E-R.  I know it’s hard to do.  Life happens, schedules get crazy, people start having babies (aah!!!)… but we’re going to keep in touch.  Today I got a chance to talk to one of my roommates who has been

I left a trail…

of hot glue ALL OVER the kitchen counter by the time this little project was done! It was a mess. Luckily I was the only one home to witness my hot glue disastor and it was cleaned up before the parents returned! Did you know that if you leave the hot glue gun on accidently for 2 hours that it constantly drips hot glue all over the counter? Welp! It does! And I quickly learned to remember to unplug after using! Last week I showed you some fun hairpieces that I have photographed this summer! Now I want to show you ours!
