    Tomorrow is 6 months until the wedding! Other than that, I got nothing but some allergies.

    Congrats on both the 6 month and 1 month marks!  That's so exciting!!

    The only thing I have to AW about is that I made my cake topper last weekend, which I am pretty proud of!

    *My ticker now says 3 months and some odd weeks...that means I need to kick my workout plan into high gear!

    *I picked up the shower invites and I'm taking them to my mom so she can mail them out this weekend! Let the registry stalking begin! (Even though I've already secretly been registry stalking).

    NWR: Last nice was parent/teacher conferences. Three different teachers told me my 15 yr old daughter is the nicest girl they have taught in a loooong time. One teacher went so far as to tell me she is not just the nicest girl in her class, she is the nicest person in ANY of the classes she teaches.

    Her art teacher told me she is very creative (gave her an A+), and makes her happy to come in and teach......when you can come in and have just one student that is excited about your class, it makes it all worthwhile.
     
    WR: Made 3 of my bridesmaid's necklaces. Also, my daughter made me the cutest t-shirt. While we were at Joann's last week, she went off and bought a t-shirt and some iron-ons to surprise me. The front has a bride & groom, holding hands, and the back has our entire wedding party of 10 including the ring bearer and flower girl........ they all look like kid's drawings, really cute.

    emarston: Great cake topper!

    NWR: The buyer's inspection on my house this past Saturday went well! I only have to make a minor $75 repair...yay! Now, I just have to wait for her financing to come through and I can officially start packing.

    WR: Addressed our save-the-dates...I'll have to go out to the car to get them to take a picture and to post later today.

    Yay for your flights, Erin! We'll keep the knottie vibes going that the volcanoes stay sleeping!

    Not much this week except we applied for our marriage license and are dropping off our cake topper with our bakery to design our cake!

    WR: Got all of my girls to go BM dress shopping together on Tuesday and everyone ordered theirs :)  We got Alfred Angelo style# 7017.  I made a last minute change and had them get the dress in Charcoal gray with a black sash.  I am very happy with my choice and can't wait for the dresses to come in!

    We received our groomsman gifts in the mail yesterday.  They were really nice-especially for the price!

    Also-I picked up my REALLY nice photobook of my boudiour pictures from my photogorapher last night.  It turned out AMAZING!!  I can't wait to give the album to him!  The pictures turned out great and the album is really nice.  Leather cover and flushmount, so there aren't any seams in the pages.

    WR    -yesterday was the four (FOUR!) month mark
              -I finished our invitation layout (just need to print & cut everything!)
              -and my bridesmaids and the moms finalized the shower date

    NWR.....I completely weeded our flower beds, planted about 100 bulbs (FI also put in a weeping cherry tree for me), put down 39 cubic feet of mulch and I finshed staining and sealing the bird & squirrel feeders I've been working on - now just have to put them together.  I'm equally as proud of all of that as I am our invitations!  :)

    Wow Cristina, I would be proud of that too! I HATE weeding, but have to do round 2 on my gardens in order to put down more mulch.

    Tuesday was the one year anniversary of FI proposing. I made a fancy dinner of stuffed shells and cheesy breadsticks.

    Invitations are also done. I have 22 more panels to glue on, then on to printing the envelopes.

    WR/NWR: We finally booked tickets for our trip home in May, and mine was totally free thanks to Delta Skymiles! As I mentioned a few days ago- my dress is in and I also have my shoes and 2 bracelets I'm totally in love with...I can't wait to see them all together.

    NWR: Yesterday was Administrative Professionals Day and I got all kinds of great gifts and treats from the teams I support.

    thanks Sue!  I really hate it too.  I've just been putting it off, and that's why I had SO much to do.

    WR: I found my photographer/videoographer for a great combo price and am mailing out the contract and deposit tomorrow! Also getting the deposit to my caterer and reverend. :) I feel accomplished! Also I'm finishing up the addresses I need to send the remainder of my STDs.

    NWR: FI and I found the first 6 seasons of the X-Files on Netflix and have been watching 2 episodes together every night. LOVED that show in the 90s. :)

    Had my second fitting today and the dress fit PERFECTLY!!!  They did an AMAZING job, and they had a LOT to do (my dress was WAY too big).

    All she has left to do is raise the bustle on the sides and it's done!  Woo!

    Well - it's almost 14 months until our wedding...so just two more until we hit the year mark!  Otherwise I've been swamped with school related stress and cannot wait for this month to be over, so nothing really to AW about.
