Wedding Wednesday!

Two posts in two days - what? Shocking I know.

I also got up at 6 this morning, went for a run, made a green smoothie for breakfast, packed my lunch and started dinner in the crock pot. I don't even know myself anymore!

We got a bunch of wedding stuff knocked out over the past two weeks so I wanted to update my list!

Over the last two weeks we:

  • Picked a first dance song!
  • Stuart picked the mens attire - finally!!!
  • Decided on and paid for the DJ. My mom and I met with him last Friday afternoon and he is so nice and not too cheesy, PTL
  • Momma ordered her MOB dress. I LOVE it!
  • Contracted the florist/cake baker. She does both and has wonderful reviews in our area. People fight over her! She is a bit quirky but does a beautiful job. When I brought her some inspiration pictures for our cake, she picked the one Stuart and I liked best and said it would be easy! Plus - she makes buttercream look like fondant so the whole thing is delicious!
  • Ordered the big part of my bridesmaid gifts :) I know at least two of you read the blog so no sneak peeks here!
  • Kicked my butt into gear. I don't know what it was about the five month mark, but I need to rock this dress and running is a mind clearer for me so I am back hitting the pavement. And trying to eat better :)

Right now I am working on the invitations and my momma is on the hotel situation like white on rice. It is coming together! Only 137 days left!
