    WR:
    Call my mom and see where she is on flowers and centerpieces. Also tell her to let family know that RSVP cards are due by the 31st. If they are not received by then we are not going to know how much food or chairs to order. Also I think I am going to get the stuff to make my card box this weekend.  I am thinking about getting a round mache' box and some beach scrapbook stuff to put on it.  I am confused as to exactly what I am going to do.  FI keeps saying to buy one from a store, but I don't like the bird cages and wishing wells that the stores have.  I want something that is pretty.

    NWR:
    We have been talking about going to Gainesville GA because there is some civil war general burried there and FI loves civil war stuff.  I am not sure if we are going to do that this weekend though. It has just been talked about.   We will probably go to Target like we usually do every weekend. We usually pick up stuff for me to eat.  I am a picky eater.

    Busy weekend ahead which is very rare. WR: we have our catholic marriage class from 9pm to about 1030pm. Can you imagine we have to go to 8 of these classes on friday night? Tomorrow Fi has his suit fitting, yay!! The tailor has a funny way of talking the way he expresses himself and and FI and I make fun of him afterwards. At 11, my dress fitting!! Last time it was nowhere near finished and I'd lost some weight so she tore out the boning and said she'd have to redo the bodice! I'm so nervous!! Then going to order our wedding bands and pick up our wedding invitations for the italian wedding. NWR: Girls night out dancing yay!, friend's bday party tomorrow afternoon and seeing inlaws for dinner on sunday. I'm telling you, I haven't been this busy in YEARS.

    Well besides stalking my mailman..... I sent out invites Monday and already got 3 responses back!

    NWR - FI is opening the pool today!!!! The usual housework, schoolwork as well.  Then Sunday we are going to go get a tv from my friends and stop off quickly at a grauation party.

    Yay!! TGIF! I am at 50 days today and that is so scary haha.

    WR: I have another fitting tomorrow... it might be my last one depending on if the bust fits now after being taken in.

    NWR: going to see my cousin and BM all dressed up for her senior prom after my fitting, and also FINALLY getting a smart phone. I am sooo so excited for this! I have never had a phone with internet before.

    So glad it's Friday! I have my science club again- though this week it's tonight instead of Saturday, which is way better! It'll be rough to be here with the kiddies till 7:30 when the weather's so nice.

    Saturday: gym, haircut, picking up wedding bands, getting invitation weighed and picking up wedding stamps from the post office. Then spending the rest of the afternoon addressing the invites with FI. We practiced on Tuesday and it seems to work fine but each envelope needs to be fed individually- we have 225 guests, and inner envelopes so that'll take a while. Not sure what we're doing at night.

    Sunday: Going for a bike ride with FI to this cute place a few towns over for lunch. Depending on our invitation progress, we'll start using ribbon to tie the invitation parts together. We're going to recruit my parents or his or MOH, or if we're really desperate, all of them, to help with this.

    Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    NWR: Today I am heading down to Virginia with my sister for my brother's college graduation that is tomorrow morning. Then, after his graduation, I am off to the Jersey shore for one of my BM's bachelorette parties! Should be a fun and busy weekend :)

    WR: Nothing!

    NWR I'm going to my brother's house warming party. I'm not doing anything WR this weekend.

    Yay for Friday!

    WR: Just stalking my mailbox for RSVP cards. Since the invitations were mailed on Saturday, I've gotten 6 cards back. I can't wait for more. The only other WR thing is to decide what food will be served at the rehearsal dinner.

    NWR: My friend's bridal shower is Saturday so I'm excited for that. My sister is also in town so I'll be happy to see her.  I have to do some serious cleaning around my house. It has been sorely neglected.

    Ceglare-I'd be excited too for a smartphone. I still don't have one and I'm holding out for various reasons. But I think after the wedding and honeymoon I'll finally suck it up and buy one.  It's so inconvenient having to call people and ask them to check information that I need right away because I don't have a phone with internet.

    It's supposed to be a beautiful day here tomorrow, so I think we'll go for a boat ride. My first one of the season!!! And, I'm not sure who will all be going yet, but we always get a nice group of people out.

    Nothing wedding related. Unless you count going to BBB tonight to exchange some items. We ordered bronze Calphalon pots & pans, but they are definitely NOT bronze. Their super dark gray, almost black.

    THIS IS MY LAST FRIDAY OF THE SCHOOL YEAR!!!!! NEXT WEEK, WE ONLY HAVE MONDAY, TUESDAY, AND WEDNESDAY, THEN SCHOOL IS OFFICIALLY OVER UNTIL MID-AUGUST!!! YAYAYYAYAYAAYYYYYY!!!!

    TGIF!!!! WHOOHOOOO!

    NWR: It is supposed to be beautiful here so I am going to try and lay out and enjoy the weather. I am also going to be an American Heart Association walk in memory of my sister-in-law's dad that passed away last year suddenly of a heat attack, he was only 65. :( 

    WR: Sunday we are going to church to talk to the music director about music being played at the wedding so that should be interesting. Other than that no other wedding plans....

    WR: my mom is coming today for the shower tomorrow

    NWR: spending the weekend with my mom and trying to fix our paint job downstairs- we found paint that matches the color of the walls and wanted to do some touch ups, but apparently they don't match exactly. I'm annoyed!!!

    wheeee so glad it is Friday.

    Tomorrow I am volunteering for a neighborhood house tour. I am a nerd so I am kind of excited about showing people around pretty homes, haha.

    Then I have my boudoir shoot. Judge away, I know lots of people are anti-boudoir, hahaha, but it should be awesome. I am starting off with a (fully clothed and traditional) yoga photo shoot, I am hoping it turns out incredible!! Then I am taking some pictures with my veil too before doing some more risque/questionable stuff ;)

    WR: Finishing addressing our invitations!! Last night, I got up to 107 envelopes addressed (out of 145). Almost there! Invites are supposed to come in the mail today so we will spend Sunday assembling all of them.

    I think you are actually my inspiration for wanting to do a boudoir shoot!! I remember you posting about doing them and I immediately was like, hmmm, I should do this. So I started googling around and I found my awesome boudoir team and immediately scheduled it! Were you nervous going into it?? do you have any hints?? my photographer and stylist are bringing me my favorite bottle of wine which should help to calm my nerves tomorrow afternoon, hahaha!

    WR: Dress fitting tomorrow for me, for my mom, and for my grandma! On Sunday, we're going to the florist for a mockup meeting and then augmenting the contract from there (most likely). There are a couple of things I'm unsure about and might cut - like flowers up the stairwell. I'm not sure that's necessary.

    NWR: I'm getting a facial tomorrow and then seeing my cousin's new baby! His name is Harrison and he looks like an old man hahahaha

    Butterfly - No judgment here! I'm just jealous of your confidence. I would never, EVER do something like that. I just would look so incredibly awkward.

    LADY - COME BACK AND TELL US ABOUT YOUR FOOD!

    mbody - I'm so jealous you'll have off for two months!

    ceglare - I have a blackberry for work, otherwise I wouldn't have a smart phone either! I just am not very good with technology and would probably break it.

    TGIF! So glad it's finally Friday! WR: My first fitting is tonight! So excited, except I'm a little worried it won't fit since I've been a total pig this week. Then tomorrow my OOT BM is coming and we're going to look at the venue and address invitations. And Sunday is my shower! So excited to see everyone. NWR: Hanging out with my girls. Crashing Senior prom to say hi to my seniors. Apparently looking for new rehearsal dinner shoes. I tried to wear them today and am currently sitting at work barefoot because they hurt so much.

    Happy Friday, girls... another week down!

    WR: Getting my e-ring resized... yet again.  Working out the schedule for my stripper at my bachelorette party (he's also my trainer at the gym).

    NWR: Going to a music fest tonight (the band we're going to see is also the band that created our first dance song YAY).  Tomorrow I'm going to officially start packing for our move next month and then watch the Devils vs Rangers game.  Sunday my mom is taking to me to the shower location (no idea where it is) where we get free lunch and pick out the menu... this is as much of a surprise as I'm getting for the shower haha.

    How is it Friday again already... seriously where has the week gone?!

    NWR:  Going to a bachelorette party of a friends it's a sat/sun/mon event... I honesty dont know when this half a week bacelor/bachelorette party thing started but it seems now freaking every one of my friends is doing it. I love them but when you have like 4 to go to it's a little time consuming and makes it harder to get your own stuff done.

    WR: buh...what ever i have time to do lol the Invites are ready to send out but i have to take one to the post office to get the right stamps.

Sunday we have counseling again, and need to work on our family tree before that. hopefully also FFIL will have a mockup table number for me. Also, just checcking off my RSVPs as they come in.
