#97 Thoughts

We are 6 days out. I'm getting more and more excited. Kaitlin has been wonderful helping Jonathan and I get the house ready for me to move in. Jonathan has two more days of work and then he is done..until June! Woot. Costa Rica here we come.

On the wedding side, I found a make up person and I have somewhat of a dance mix. I'm still working on the programs (I'm waiting on music titles) and the favors are just and just need to be printed and made.

Oh! And we had a dance lesson. It was fabulous. We've been practicing I just hope we don't get too shy the day of.

I'm feeling really great about things. Not too stressed. There are things to be done but I still have a week and fabulous help. Please pray for sunshine. :)

Woo hoo!

#92 Tornado and updates

As I sit here in the bathroom of Jonathan's house, I can hear the tornado siren blaring outside. The lights keep tinkering, so I'm not sure if we will lose power too. I'm not really scared, I just wish I could see what is going on outside. And if the tornado that has been spotted comes this least I'm away from the windows. I can hear the wind, rain, and thunder. And this may be gross, but I'm sharing this bathroom with a fly. I guess it's not bothering me so I'm not going to bother it.

Life has been pretty good. Wedding things are going really well, I've marked so many things off my to-do list! The newspaper will publish it's last issue tomorrow, which is already pretty amazing. I can't believe its been an entire year! And...I only have 2 weeks until finals, which means 3 weeks until graduation...which means 5 WEEKS until the WEDDING! Yahooooo!

Here are a couple things that are ready to go:
Flowers - check
Suits arrived - check
Bridesmaid's gifts - check
Invitations delivered - check
RSVPs arriving - yay!
Ceremony timeline - check
Reception blue grass band (during dinner) - check check!!
Cellist for ceremony - check
Keyboardist for ceremony - check
Guitarist for ceremony - almost check

That's all I can think of at the moment. But I'm super excited! The bluegrass band is gonna be really fun. It's mostly a girl band (they have one guy I think) and they have beautiful voices. Jonathan, Kaitlin, and I went and listened to them last Sunday and decided we have to have a blue grass band play at our wedding. It's something that represents TN well, and something we enjoy as well. There is a Mountain Opry we go to some Friday nights. They have different blue grass bands play old tunes and gospel songs, its really fun. So Jonathan and I thought it would be a fun idea to have a blue grass band play during dinner at the reception. Its bound to be fantastic. Jonathan works at the hospital with one of the ladies who is in the band, so we've got some connections. :)

Anyway, there is a mini update for now. I'll follow up more these next couple days. 
This is what I have left on my list:

Ceremony songs
Reception dance mix
Dance lessons?
Pick first dance song
Print wedding programs
Create/make favors (you will love them)
Write thank you notes (:D our showers were all much fun!! thank you!!)
Stay safe from this tornado (the siren is going off again)
Finally decide what to do about dessert
Cake toppers (check these...oh I <3>
Welcome baskets
Get some sunshine, but not too much.
Veil and headpiece

Not too shabby. They are all totally manageable. :)
I'm off for now! Only 37 more days!
