I'm back - with engagement photos

Life has been crazy, but I'm back for a while. I don't know how many remember me so a quick bit about me (with engagement photos below, sorry if they are so large).

Wedding is in 20 days! December 27th in Oregon where my fiance lives.  (He is finishing up Veterinary School).  We met in high school, started dating our junior year, and went to college together. We both have 5+ years of college (a question asked when getting our wedding license).  We were engaged last year on Christmas Eve.

For those that don't remember me, feel free to ask me questions! 
For those that do remember me, it is good to be back.

    NYCMercedes  I just started a new job. Technically 9-5, but salaried so trying to make a good impression and working more than that.  I also have been traveling. Went to Mexico, Seattle, and Florida for work. Between that, being sick, and going out with friends to play sports (tennis, hiking, soccer, and volleyball) almost daily, I just spread myself too thin. Didn't spend much time on the computer these last few months.
    I also lost my grandma and my grandpa in the last two months, so my family has had it a little rougher than normal.

    I'm back, because I love you ladies. I love the snark and enjoy chilling. Life has slowed down a bit. I enjoy learning from and (hopefully) contributing to these forums.

    @emmaaa  I'm here! Are you getting pumped????!   How is planning going? 
    I've got so much left to do!
     -Rewrite our vows
     -Send email to mom about centerpieces (she is picking up pinecones for me)
     -Finish Honeymoon Activity Reservations
     -Start/Finish Seating Chart and Escort Cards!
     -Guest Bags for Out of Towners

    I know I have more! I just need to get through those first.

    As you can tell, I'm in list making mode where if I make a list I actually feel like I'm getting something done.

    We are so excited! It really snuck up on me! 

    To do list:
    -We are getting our marriage license this week and all the paperwork for my name change so I can just go to the offices in January.
    -I'm waiting on RSVPs. Luckily the caterer doesn't need a headcount until the week before. The RSVP deadline is Friday so I figure I'll start calling people the middle of next week.
    -My SIL and I are making programs next week. I have to get the final timeline from the officiant.
    -We got all of the candle holders and candles this weekend. SIL and I are going to do a mock set up (minus the floral arrangement) this week.
    -Get the invoice from the cake lady so we can pay her
    -Confirm music.
