100 Days!

I cannot believe that in 100 days, I will be in the Dominican marrying my best friend! It's been over a year of planning this way-off-in-the-future event, and it seems to be coming quicker now. :) Luckily, my wedding nightmares haven't been as nightmarish lately. In them, it's always the day before or the day of the wedding but all that's been planned and is ready is what I currently (at the time of the dream) have completed. So, as I'm getting checks done for the wedding, the nightmares don't seem as bad. My next big to-do is to get the invites out, hopefully in the next week or two. I have the envelopes and am taking a calligraphy class this Friday (nothing like waiting until the last minute!). The actual invites are going through final proofs now and I can't wait to see them when they are completed!

Snow Already!

This past weekend, Jim and I went up north and we had our first snowfall. And it was quite cold! We went up so that Jim could go bow hunting one last time before rifle season starts next weekend. And he did get his first deer with his bow! So our low supply of venison is soon to be replenished. While he hunted though, I spent my time staying warm inside, napping and reading. Just the kind of weekend I enjoy up north. ;)

Bought The Wedding Bands

This check makes the wedding seem very real and really close! :D We went to the jewelers that Jim had my engagement ring made (ACE Jewelers) and picked out our wedding bands. Mine is an eternity band that looks just like the band on my e-ring, but is much slimmer. Jim's is a tungsten carbide ring that is mostly brushed, but has some polished details on it. We were able to take mine with us as it's a little large, but lines up perfectly with my engagement ring, so I can get them soldered together after the wedding. Jim's had to be ordered, but should be in a couple weeks from now.

More Weddings On The Horizon

It sounds like the wedding planning in the family won't end with mine. Two weeks ago, my mom's boyfriend asked for my sister's and my blessing to marry my mom. :) She's also asked me to be her maid of honor. But, the planning for hers will pretty much be simultaneous with mine since it's three weeks after Jim's and mine. That will be a little crazy! Although, it will be a real small ceremony. Then, this past weekend, my sister's boyfriend proposed to her. :) When she told me, they were going to joke and say theirs will be the month after my mom's, and since my sisters and I decided when we were young that we would be each others maid of honor, I will be hers as well. Luckily, they decided not to get me all worked up and worried. But, their wedding will be sometime in 2010. I'm so happy for all of them!
