95 Days!

Yes, my friends...the countdown has been on for awhile now. ha It was so exciting to hit double digits a few days ago when we made it to the 99 day mark. I think Eric believed it would never get here! ;)

We have been keeping VERY busy. As always. I know. ha Same story, different day.

An update on some of our recent wedding accomplishments:
- bought Emma & Jordan's junior bridesmaid dresses (there was a sale at David's Bridal & the dress I wanted for Jordy was being discontinued, so we HAD to go! ha)
- bought all the bridesmaid jewelry & shoes (thanks to Jen for driving all over Indy with us to pick it all out)
- bought my wedding shoes (already had my jewelry)
- bought my bridal shower shoes & jewelry (had ordered my dress online the week before)
- solved our cake topper dilemma & went somewhat traditional, but are using our non-traditional items for the head table
- started looking at wedding bands online & think we know what we want, probably gonna do that this next month
- meeting with our cake lady this upcoming weekend! (hoping that our vision will be clear...haha)
- emailing the ideas/inspiration for the invites, rsvp cards & program to our fab designer, Jenn and anxiously awaiting the first draft
- ordered the bridal shower invites & thank you cards, just waiting on them to arrive so they can be mailed out
- ordered the favors for the reception (and have them safely stored in one of the MANY tubs in mom's living room!)
- washed & stored all the jars for our table decorations (and stored them in the tubs)

It's coming right along. I know it'll be here pretty soon. It's just a short 3 months away! For the most part, we are set on everything. Our last big purchase is the wedding bands. Everything else is scheduled, just need to finalize a few things...like food! Hoping to meet with the caterer soon. Their granddaughter was diagnosed with leukemia at just 1 month old, so haven't really pushed them about "business" stuff when family is so much more important.

We still need to figure out where we are going to spend our wedding night. The local inn that we wanted to stay at is closed according to their Facebook page. So, we've been searching and think we may have found another great (and private) place to go for our first night as man & wife. :) Probably will try to go check it out at some point in the next month and get it booked if we like it.

I never believed I would be one of those girls that had wedding nightmares. I have read plenty of blogs and have numerous friends who have shared some of their "funny" (to me) stories about nightmares they'd had in the months proceeding their weddings. Now that I am to that point, I guess the fears (sometimes unrealistic) come out while I sleep! The other week I dreamt that it was 2 hours before the wedding and our tent company still hadn't set up the ceremony chairs or the tent for the reception. hahaha Yowza. I was luckily able to laugh about it when I woke up, but I remember the intense feeling of dread and anxiety I had during the dream when it was NOT going as planned. Hopefully no more of that nonsense!

In other news - today marked the first day of the girls not attending public school. I said what??!? Haven't had much time to log on and blog about that decision, but suffice it to say that the girls have been struggling majorly in school and as an alum of two great schools, I have to say that it is apparent the school doesn't want or care to offer their students the help they truly need. The sad thing is...the girls are very bright, and we're hoping this is the answer. They are now "attending" the online public school here in IN. It's all done over the web, but they have access to real teachers and get graded just like in school. They have to complete so many hours a day as well. We're really hoping this works because they have been warned that they have this semester to improve their grades or else they are going back to a traditional public school, wherever that may be.


  1. You sound like your so prepared and right on track. Hopefully I'm as organized as you two when I get married!

    Good luck w/ the girls' grades & school!!
