Tomorrow I will marry my best friend.

Well, I'm outta here for now! My last post as a single lady! *squeal* Thanks to everyone that posted here for all the inspiration, advice, support and guidance over the past year. I always loved logging on to see a comment from a fellow bride, all my girlfriends from MH, or my life-long friends. I promise to post pictures when I can. Wish me luck!

Tomorrow I will marry my best friend...

Nine days left as a Ms.

So, we're finally done with just about everything.

To Do List:
• Finalize the band-breaks mixed cd
• Wrap the bridal party, parents gifts & I need to wrap Drew's gifts.
• Get something borrowed from Drew's mom (I'm hoping for a silver bangle bracelet of some sort)
• Pay venue, caterer, band and officiant
• Get balloons for the turn into the Cave
• Final dress fitting & pick up (yay!)
• Finish pom poms
• DIY bouquets (flowers will be delivered next Wednesday & we'll DIY on Thursday
• Beverages for the reception (punch, lemonade, tea..)
• Fill kegs & buy wine
• Get our wedding license

Anyways, I think that's it. Of course, I feel like I'm forgetting something...

I'm super anxious and having more trouble sleeping as the wedding gets closer. I just can't stop myself from thinking about the wedding and how much fun it will be for all our friends and family to be with us on our special day.

I wrote my vows last night. I still want to revise them a little but I'm really happy with how they turned out. Drew read me the vows he's going to say to Emma. I cried of course. They were so him. Sweet and thoughtful with a small hint of humor.

I'm going to try to go to bed now. Here's some pictures to hold you over. This is a back room, which is currently referred to as "the wedding room". Everything packed away, ready to make it's way to Cave Hollow next Friday night for the rehearsal/dinner/decorating party.

I'm so excited!!

I need help with bubble instructions!

Our 150 programs are done. yay! Drew helped me finish them up last night.

Tonight I realized that I didn't say anything about blowing bubbles after we're pronounced husband and wife. So now I'm trying to think of a sign to put on the bubble basket or somewhere so our guests know to when to blow the bubbles. I'm thinking something like, "Shower the newlyweds with bubbles after they're pronounced husband and wife," but I'm not sure that I like that... Any ideas?

New stuff (really creative title, haha!)

First up - our programs. Super easy, super inexpensive & multipurposeful (is that a word?)

I've blurred names. :)

My daughter and I are wearing red shoes - aren't they pretty!?

We bought my dad, Drew's dad and Drew's stepdad ties on Etsy from rabbitstop. She even makes cute personalized labels for the back.

I work at a newspaper as a graphic designer. After our engagement announcement was published, I came home to this in my mailbox. It's our announcement on the metal plate used to print the paper. The press operator is a totally awesome guy and dropped it off at my house. Isn't that totally cool? Love it. (again, I had to blur out the whole thing since all of our immediate families names are on it)

I'm going to finish another 50 programs tonight and mark that off the list. Hope to post more soon! Cheers!
