*E-Pics are HERE

I opened my email this morning and there they were! I can't wait to get the actual cd, my photographer said she's putting it in the mail tomorrow so I should have it by the end of the week!

Check them out HERE.

They turned out alright...I didn't like a lot of them but there were some good ones...I just feel like there aren't alot where we're both looking at the camera and look good...ha It was soo windy that day so my hair looks like crap in a lot of them :(

Oh well..we get to have a second E-Pic photo shoot in December with our original wedding photographer so hopefully with those and these we'll have enough pictures to make a guestbook!

Once I get my cd I'll post the good ones in a post :)

1 year down, another to go

We've been together for five and a half years already...only one more to go until our wedding! Exactly one year from today at this time I will be walking down the aisle. Yay!

Below is what was waiting for me as I woke up this morning from Jerry. So cute, a flower he picked from someones yard! :) Tonight we'll be going out to dinner, I believe at the Melting Pot, its going to be my first time. I have never been there and have wanted to go for awhile so maybe tonight! YUM!

Its here! I ordered the paper that I'll be using to make our Save The Dates last Friday from Invite Designer. I bought 100 sheets, each can make 2 5x7 cards so thats right around 200. I dont think I need this many, but I'll be using this paper for the inserts in my pocketfold invitations so if I have paper leftover I'll just save it for that. It was $53 with shipping and handling. I had planned on using the ebay lady like I said in a previous post for only $35 but I couldn't find her on there once I was finally ready to order it! :(

Of course I had to take pictures of it as soon as it got here this morning! Its called White Micah and its this gorgoes white shimmery paper.

This is the box it came in! Yay!

I love the look of it in this picture, its so soft yet shiny! I can't wait to use it!

Once I buy colored ink for my printer I'll make a mock up of my STD! Hopefully by next weekend or soo..? :)

Wedding Map

I actually sat down all morning yesterday and today and worked on the map that will be in my invitation. I will have to make some final size arrangements when I figure out what size paper its going on but other then that I think its done. I'll be adding actual driving directions on it somewhere as well

I think it turned out pretty well seeing as this was how my first time trying this!

Oh Where Oh Where Should Our Honeymoon Be?

Who knows? Not I!

I've looked into so many options its ridiculous. I think I will have to talk to a travel agent on this one. I'm not sure which of my options are do-able and which are completely ridiculous!

I am so picky I'm not sure I'll ever be able to choose! I do NOT want anywhere thats going to be like spring break. I want a nice romantic honeymoon, not a ton of people but not completely sucluded either. Somewhere with a beach and white sand. I also have to go somewhere where you can zipline. I dont mind if I stay on the beach somewhere and have to drive an hour into the mountains to do it but it must be relatively close as I am for sure doing that!

I am really against Mexico too, I'm not sure why but anytime someone mentions anywhere in Mexico, it doesn't matter what part I just automatically reply no. I wont even listen to options about it. I think I've just heard to many spring break stories so its ruined it.

I was all for Hawaii..but now the price does seam kind of high for what I'm looking for. We'd have to do kind of crappy condo and hope guests buy us some accomodations through a honeymoon registry if I want it to be what I'm looking for.

So NEXT I heard of Bora Bora and the Maldives, well hell they're WAY out of my budget so I had to cross those off the list right away.

Lately I've been looking into Belize. It fits my budge better and you can zipline there. I'm just not sure what area I would watt to stay in, I've looked at a lot and nothing looks to enticing.

Still looking though, theres so many places out there but its so hard. I would kind of like to get on the ball and figure out where we're going so I can get some deposits down before everythings gone. Maybe tonight since FI and I both have the night off we'll take a trip to the travel agency. Good thinking me!

Disposable Camera-Check!

So I talked to my FMIL today and she said to pick out which cameras I want then to let her know and she'll order them! I just emailed her the link with the two cameras I liked. The first one is called Fairytale Fantasy and the other is just Hearts and Doves. I'd just post pictures myself, but of course they're website blocks you from copying them. Figures, ha. I'm excited!

Ceremony Reading??

Another Possibility.

Roy Croft

I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can't help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.
You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.

Premarriage Awareness Inventory

Yep, you guessed it. Our wedding questioniere. All 118 questions.

Can you tell how excited we are to be doing these?

It actually was kind of fun to do this. We didn't look at each others answers or discuss what we were putting while we took them either. Not till the end after we were all finished we 'reviewed' each others answers. We didnt' make any changes though, sometimes I wonder how we ever became paired together. ha So many things were the exact same, yet so many things were the exact opposite. Weird.

So last night we met with Lenette Seelmeyer from Picture This Photography. She was wonderful. We headed up to the Horsetooth Reservoir about a ten minute drive from us. We had gorgeous views, of both mountains and water, and I can not wait to get them back! We ended up trecking down a hill and back, which literally took my breath away, just to get to the water to have those pictures. It was definately worth it. We were even able to take our dogs and get some pictures with them so hopefully one of them turned out well too.

She said we'll have our pictures back by the end of the month...which doesn't seam long if you look at it like that, the end of the month, but when you look at it as..three more weeks..ha I can't wait! I better get started on making my save the date cards so when our pictures are done we can get ready to send them!

Don't Stress

Just some inspiration to keep happy during your wedding planning!

Remember, your wedding day is about two people who really love each other coming together as one. If the flowers aren't the right color, no one will notice. If the cake falls over, several years from now, it won't matter. If the dress gets a spot on it, no one will see it and even if they do, they won't think twice about it. If your DJ messes up your last name, your grandkids will have a story to pass down to their kids. If your makeup artist doesn't show up, you will make do just like you have every day prior to that. If your hair doesn't curl quite right... just throw it up and call it a day. In the end, you will be married. You will go home together after this short party and get ready for the rest of your lives together. These few hours aren't anything when you compare. Just be thankful for the person who came into your life and learn to laugh a little.... you are going to be laughing together for a VERY long time :)
