Wow. This past week is movin' right along! We are counting down the days and trying to complete the seating chart with all the new additional people that have slowly decided that they want to come....
These days are coming with more and more stress. It feels like madness...just madness. I'll be ready when we get to Korea and get the heck outta here. I can't wait until the honeymoon and everything else to finally come together.
Before Joshua got home, I felt like there was a MILLION things to do and now that he's here, I just can't remember what needs to be done...
We've got to get down to it. We are meeting with the Dr. Procter today and getting our marriage license! Woohoo :)

Until next time,

We are a week and 6 days away from Joshua arriving! Woo hoo :) We are cutting down on time. We are 2 weeks and 6 days from the wedding. Our first bridal shower was on August 28th. The bridesmaids threw the party for me. It was very small and intimate. It was so much fun :) We enjoyed a lot of little games and took lots of pictures. They got me lots of nice presents from some of my closest friends!

All the shower attendants and Me.

Me and my Maid Of Honor!

The bride-to-be!

The second bridal shower was thrown by my mother and aunt on September 11th. It was so much fun, too! Most people that attended were older females like Christopher's grandmother, my grandmother, my aunt, Pastor's wife, and about 7 other ladies. It was so nice to hear what these ladies had to say. Most of them had been married for 20 or more years so they had some great advice! Christopher's grandmother gave me Christopher's recipe that he always used during Christmas-cinnamon rolls! Yum! I can't wait to attempt it :)

Some of the ladies

Granny, Mom and I

We got the flowers taken care of, now all I've got to do is get the rehearsal luncheon together! Im so excited to finally be getting closer and closer. I can't wait. I'm just so ready to get it done :)

Until next time,
The future Mrs!

Twenty Nine

We are officially hitting the home stretch! I can't believe it. We are 4 weeks out! 28 days until our big day! Yesterday we bought Joshua's ticket home from Korea for his 30-day leave. We also purchased our plane tickets to our honeymoon destination, which I can not wait for!! The only real thing we have left to deal with is flowers. Joshua's mom, Linda, should be in on Friday to go pick out flowers for centerpieces and boutenniers. I've already got some flowers picked out, we're just going to get the rest taken care of. On Wednesday afternoon, I'm going to visit another florist about doing the real flowers for the wedding. The bridesmaids and I are going to have real floral bouquets, which I am super excited for. We are going to have PINK bouquets! I can't wait. So we've got most things done except for flowers and a few other details.
We just secured our pastor for the wedding, as well. Just after I was born, my father was graduating from seminary school. A couple that they graduated with live fairly close to this area. They attend the same church as my mom. Dr David Proctor told my mom that he'd be more than happy to do our ceremony! How great. We are almost "completing" our family circle by having them marry the child of the man they went to seminary with. How funny :)

Either way, dresses need to be hemmed and fitted and we need to get our florals straight, but other than that, we seem to be on the right path! Woo hoo :) So excited to start the rest of our lives! :)

Until next time,
The future Mrs!
