    My only thing is that I bought my earrings yesterday for my dress!  And I am starting some work on the side for someone else who works in my office.  Which will really help to pay for the wedding!

    I have a 1/2 day tomorrow and Monday off to do wedding stuff with my Mom who is coming into town...  tasting for reception, bridal shower, and dress fitting.

    I had a shower last weekend as well and got all my thank you cards written and mailed yesterday.  :)

    I'm uber sore from Pilates, and FI and I's ride last night. But, sore is good. Means something is workin ;)

    FI has a long race this Saturday in Weatherford with some of his racing buddies. I'm not going. Instead I'm going to stay here and go shopping with my MOH for her dress. Yes, we are just now shopping for one with 37 days left to go! (eeek!) She just had a baby about 3 weeks ago, so we had to cut it really close. She's going to have to either find something off the rack, or we are going to have to put a major rush order on it!

    I'm sure it'll all work out though! And, I get to play with her baby girl on Saturday after we go shopping so that's a plus :) Playing with other people's kids always satisfies my baby fever.

    You just made me feel a whole lot better, I have a bridesmaid who hasnt purchased her dress...she just got married two weeks ago so I"m sure it was the last thing on her mind.  MY FSIL hasn't purchased her daughter's FG dress either. 

    I got a lot of stuff done last weekend, bought the last of the little things.  I now have a guest bedroom full of wedding stuff.  I can't wait to start saving rather than spending on wedding stuff.

    Ohh...and can I say, even though I know my RSVP date is 3 weeks away I still rush home to check the mail everyday hoping I find out whether I'm lucky enough to see a "Can't Make It" on certain people's RSVP. No such luck yet...

    My shoes came in yesterday, and they look and feel really good.
    I thought the lower heel wouldn't look that good but it actually is really flattering and I am not going to be taller than my FI and get to be comfortable the whole night.

    annie-

    I wouldn't worry too much, I just ordered my FG dress about 2 weeks ago and it's not even arriving until the week before the wedding. Yeah, I guess I really like to leave things until the last minute. hahaha. It doesn't really stress me out though, I know it will all turn out just fine!

    Joanne - good job on getting the thank you's out so quickly.  I'm trying to keep mine going out as soon as I get stuff in, but it is difficult at times. 

    I had my bridal photo's taken Tuesday afternoon.  I'm totally stalking my phographers blog even though she said it would be next week, and she would e-mail me...   I REALLY want to see them!!!

    Wedding is 37 days away... FI still has not asked all of the ushers if they will be in the wedding.  We decided who we would ask months ago, he is just procrastinating... Ugh!

    The bridesmaid dress shouldn't be hard for her to find off the rack--black chiffon is all I requested it be.  Could find that anywhere! 

    FSIL will probably end up having to get FG dress made.  Her grandma could do it easily, I just dont understand why she's so opposed to the idea.  Not my problem, as long as she has a dress, I'm good!

    Kathy I love those shoes.  Mine were very similar and were very comfortable.

    Linz, I love the book.  I have one for our HM designed but I'm not thrilled about it.  Doing the HM book was definitely harder for me than the others.

    Linz- the book is super cute, I love the idea of making extra albums yourself.


    I have no AW for the day things are not so good around here lately.

    Steph,
    I actually walked into the Kate Spade store at Northpark to see if they had your shoes and they don't carry their wedding shoes in the store, and I was a little hesitant buying Kate Spade online because for me anyway sometimes they run a bit small and sometimes not , so I was worried about the size and having to possibly return them.

    Then I bought some black Nina shoes on sale at the mall and really liked those for their comfort and then the wedding ones went on sale on their website so I ended up getting my shoes for about $60 after tax/shipping and handling and all that.
     
    BTW, I promise my wedding won't be a carbon copy even though I have asked you a lot of questions and got a lot inspiration from you and your awesome wedding . :)

    My AW (aside from the dress pics I'll post later after I pick up the dress- yeeee) is that our invites went in the mail today. 
    Turns out we had to add a $.17 stamp with a Ram on it, but oh well.  Totally not going to worry about a stupid ram since most people will through away the envelope 2 seconds after they open it.  Rams need love too.

    balfour, my first 20 invites that I mailed out where ram-efied as well. I thought it would be quite humorous. Wink

    MY AW is we are taking our engagement pictures on Sunday! I can't wait, hopefully we won't be too nervous. FI does not like to have his picture taken, so hopefully he can relax and have fun My MOH is pregnant with Twins, she should deliver about 2 months before the wedding, so we are going to do last minute dress shopping for her too :)

    I don't have any wedding-related AWs, however, I have been really productive at work and on other stuff. I'm really impressed with myself! I took last week and the week before off from life - I didn't work on the wedding, job applications, I didn't worry about diet and exercise. And it worked! I've been so motivated this week!

    Kathy, yeah, I bought mine online and they were a little tight so I went to Northpark and they had ONE pair left--size 8 exactly what I needed. 

    I am staying home from work today.  Had an upset stomach both last night and this morning and am very woozy.  I'm about to go eat some soup and watch HGTV in my pajamas the rest of the day.

    I have the same fear about my bridal shower that my FMIL is hosting next weekend!!! I've already had about 4 friends tell me they can't make it, and that makes me sad :( I totally understand, but I just hope it doesn't end up being all FI's family and like 2 of my friends. I would really like the majority of the people there to be people that have been a big part of MY life.

    I'm so late to the game, what does AW stand for? It seems like a post about your progress so ours is that we met with Colton @ SixFourteen Tuesday and I really like him, and we're scheduling engagements in about 3 months... which I'm super nervous for because I HATE the way I look in pictures!

    I have a shower this weekend too and am stressed about the number of declines we've gotten...  Some of them really hurt my feelings and I'm trying to not let it bother me, but it's still hard.  I just remind myself that one of my BFF's is coming up from Austin for it, and my mom will be in town!  :)

    Yep, I agree. I'm trying not to take it personally too. I have a good friend coming in from out of town and there will be some people there that I haven't seen in quite a while, so I'm trying to focus on that!
