Since I have nothing to really blog about until my pro-pics and video comes back, let me set the "before" scene of my last weeks of planning. I really wanted to do a candy buffet, so I went out and searched for bargain vases and candy. I really did good! I spent about $120 on candy and about $80 on candy dishes! I think that's pretty good!! My guests really enjoyed the candy! LOL So much that there was nothing left! I didn't really get a chance to see the candy buffet, but I heard it was very pretty! So anyway, here are pictures of candy I purchased, and me playing around at home with my vases :)

Yayy!!! I am so excited to announce that I am a Mrs now! The day was amazing! I was in pure wedded bliss! I didn't notice any mishaps until the days after, but who cares?? The day was beautiful, I was beautiful (LOL), my hubby was HOOTT!!! The wedding party was beautiful, and I LOVVEEED my reception decor! Overall, I give my day a big fat B+!!!! I will say that the day went by entirely toooo fast! But I loved every bit of it! I am also glad I invested that $600 into a photo booth! My guest made me feel REALLY good about that expense.
I am patiently waiting on proffessional pictures and my dvd, until then, please enjoy some non-pro pics! :)

Paragraph.

My girls gave me an amazing shower! So I decided to give them "shower" themed gifts! I also gave them a little message that said "Thank you for an amazing shower, now you have an amazing shower!
 
 
 

Wow, I remember when I had well over 300 + days to go, and now I am down to 30! Yikes! I am feeling pretty good at the moment. I have a bit of mixed feelings though. I am anxious, excited, nervous and a little bit stressed. The stress comes from inconsiderate people that are causing unnecessary drama! Also, stress comes from the people who have not turned in the pre-stamped RSVP postcard. I have heard it ALL! 

 1. “I didn’t know we were supposed to send that back in” (I guess they didn’t read the note that basically says MAIL THE REPLY or we will consider you as DECLINED!)

 2. “Well, I just assumed you knew we were coming”. (Oh REALLY? I guess I am supposed to be okay with having to maybe pay for ASSUMED GUEST!)
(or this one, that really pisses me off).

3. “Oh, we lost our invite. Just put us down for 3”. (How ABOUT – NO!)

People, people, people. Let’s have at least a little bit of respect for the bride/groom/payee that has spent money on invitations and stamps and for EVEN inviting you to the wedding! That is a privilege!

 So anyway, back to my being excited about 30 days!! Yippee!!! The thought of being this man’s WIFE, takes the stress away of all the nonsense! I am TRULY living my fairytale!! I still get tingles when he walks through the door at night with our son. I still blush when he stares at me. I am in LOVE!!! YAYY!! And that is the most important thing!!

I’ll meet you at the alter my darling!!!!!

Next…getting ready to prepare for our marriage license application!!! Yayyy!!!

I am so excited, and nervous at the same time. I have no idea where the shower is. My wonderful friends/bridesmaids and mom, planned it all and I am anxious for it all to begin! As I sit here the morning of my shower, I am reflecting on so many things! I can't believe this is all happening! I'm so happy and excited to be able to just enjoy TODAY. Being in a room full of the most important women in my life, means so much to me. I can't wait to share pictures of this event!
