Progress....making Progress!!!

So last weekend, Mom and I went and picked out invitations. This was really special to me, because I saw some invitations back in September when Mom and I attended a bridal show, that I fell in love with. I haven't been able to get them out of my head, but they were never in our budget, so needed to get out of my head. Anyway, fast forward 8 months, to last weekend when mom and I went to look at invitations. We went and met with a lady who owns a store called The Paperstation, in Frisco. She asked what I wanted- and I explained to her that what I wanted was not what was going to be in our budget. She told me to tell her anyway, so I did. Well...after some work, and some calculations and this and that- can you believe that I will be able to have those dream invitations!!!! I am so thrilled. They are so elegant, yet modern, yet traditional- yet fun. I cannot wait to see them! We have another appt. with her this coming Wednesday, so we will get to see the proofs she worked up!!!

So then....on Wednesday of last week, Megan, Mom, and I went over to Carole's house to talk cakes. Well we talked "life" talk, and caught up on people from "back in the day" as well as talked cakes. It turns out that we definitely can have the 2 cakes that Rob and I have picked out, and I am so thrilled for that, too!!!! It is SOOOOO nice to not have to worry ONE BIT about my cakes. Carole does amazing, beautiful, detailed work- that I have been able to witness for years. Man, we have gotten so lucky- and have been so blessed during this whole process.

Then....on Friday of this past week, Megan, Mom, and I headed out to the Arboreteum to meet my photographer, Rod, and his wife, Hannah- for my bridal portraits. So, that day started at 9:30 with my hair appt. Insert major anxiety here. I was stressing about my hair, hoping it came out looking great. Prayer answered. It did. It was fabulous. Makeup at 11:30. Well that was a disaster. I won't get into the details, but I will say things DO happen for a reason, and the girl who ended up doing my makeup was fabulous and a complete God send. I know it. She is a jewel, and will DEFINITELY be doing my makeup for the wedding. Man, I loved her. So then it was off to the Arboreteum. In 97 degree heat. Yes..97 degrees. Now, I don't want to sit here and whine...but I'm going too, a little. The VERY Reason that we chose to do my portraits in May- was to avoid 90+ temperatures like we have June, July, Aug, and sometimes Sept. I need my pictures back by Sept, so I can get one framed- May it was. I nearly melted. I tried to keep a smile, and sure as heck hope my makeup wasn't running off of my face! Mom and Megan said it wasn't...and they had better be telling the truth! Oh well, that's what picture editing is for, right?!?!? =) it's Saturday, and Rob and I just came in from spending some time at the pool in our neighborhood. It was a nice time out...and for some odd reason, it was all adults at the pool- so that was even nicer!!!

I hope all of you enjoy your long weekend, and will be back to post more, soon!

Coming Together...sloooowwwlllyyyy but surely

I have never, NEVER- been so ready to be a wife- than right now!!! I love Rob with my whole being, and my gosh, I can't wait for him to be ALL mine, and me ALL his!!! How exciting is that?!?!??

Things regarding the wedding are coming together, slowly but surely! Rob's ring is in, and it is beautiful. Perfect, and exactly what he wanted. My garters came in and they are ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!! My garter is going to be my "something blue". They are so personalized, and so precious.

My veils and shoes are in, and my dress should be finished with it's alterations anyday now. I met with the girl who is doing my hair today, and we have a gameplan on the updo! I hope it turns out as I imagine, because I am super nervous about my hair, LOL!!!

My bridal pictures are next Friday out at the Arboretum, at 1:00 PM. I am praying that the weather is cooperative, and that we can get some gorgeous shots. My mom and sister will be there, along with my photographer, and his wife. It should be a fabulous time!!!

We are meeting with Carole Reid tomorrow night (cakes) and I can't wait to see what she thinks about the cakes we are looking at!!!

Mom and I are headed to look at some jewelery this weekend, as well as looking at a few invitation places as well.

On a SUPER DUPER fun note, my bachelorette party weekend is in the works!!!! The girls and I will be heading to Austin for a long weekend, and have so many fun things planned (from what I hear!!!!) I can't wait!!! I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends.

Ok- I'm going to go relax, while I have time!!!
