Thank You, Honey

Just wanted to post a quick thank you to my sweetie, for helping me today with a work assignment. Rob stays so incredibly busy during the day, and I took a chance and emailed something to him, for him to look over- and he was able to help me make a change that needed to be made...and I thought it was so sweet.

It's in the little things....

I love you so much, Rob.

Forbidden Fruit..with Bling last night, Rob and I went to pick up my wedding band {insert huge giddy grin}. After much confusion as to which one was the EXACT match for my ring, and after some research on the part of the precious sales associate that actually helped Rob from Day 1 he stepped foor in the store- we FOUND IT!

I tried them both on, and was very emotional the entire time we were in the store. Thoughts about what the wedding band and engagement ring symbolize, thoughts about where I want our relationship to go and the road ahead.

They polished both of my rings up for me, and boxed up the wedding band. I handed the bag to Rob- and he got in his truck to head home, and me in my car. (You see, the band is ALLL nice and shiny, fingerprint and dirt free- and I knew that had I driven home with that ring in my car, it would have been on my finger--because I need to "practice" wearing them, right?!?)

This morning..I went and grabbed the box, untied the ribbon, and proceeded to put the ring on my finger again. Thinking to myself...this can't be my hand. This can't be mine. It is perfect, it is gorgeous. It is me.

May I add- it took ALL of my strength to take that ring off and put it back in the box. I felt like a girl playing dress up, and wanted to prance around with my shiny finger :)

Luckily I put my big girl panties on...and promised myself that I cannot put that ring on and wear it again, until October 11th, at approximately 6:15 PM or so.

I love you, Rob.

From This Day Forward

From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home.

Sooooo Ready Not Ready

This describes me, LOL!!!! I am so ready for this wedding, but so not ready! To be very honest, my first 13 months of wedding planning went great. There were a few setbacks, but that is to be expected, right? Well this last month could be the death of me! There really is only SO much you can do before hand, because some things just have to wait until the last minute; until you have a final headcount and until closer to the time of the wedding.

The last few things on the list include: meeting with the DJ, determining the order of the ceremony, as well as our speeches at the wedding, and putting together the slide show. (oh and food tasting, Bridesmaid dress altering, hotel basket putting together, flowergirl dress fitting and shoe ordering...but I mean...who's really counting, HA!) I know it will all fall into place, but to say these next 4 weeks are going to be busy is more of a understatement than I care to admit too!!!

It will be MORE than worth it on October 11th...and this I know!

I hope to update more...but right now, I know my days will be spent working and my evenings spent wrapping up the loose ends!

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and send your best wishes =)

Beyond Overdue

...I am beyond overdue for a post! Maybe that let's a little insight into the business and hecticness (is that a word??? it is today) of our lives lately! In 5 weeks, I will be married at this very minute. Dancing the night away with my husband, our families, and our friends.

I will blog tomorrow....promise!
