On Wednesday, I was given a wedding shower at work! It was so nice. I was overwhelmed by how great everyone was and all they did for me. It was really nice. Two of my homegroup girls from Clemson came and Meghan & Conner were there too. Danielle Broome made an AMAZING 3D peach cake. It was awesome. It was a strawberry cake that looked just like the peach in my save the date. She just started her own little buisness called "For Goodness Cake" - You can search for it on facebook!

A few more wedding things I've got lately... :)

We are currently researching honeymoon destinations, deals and such. Well let me be honest, I'm not - Cody is handling this all by himself. I gave him the task with one request - a beautiful beach. I'm not hard to please in this area. I love sitting on the beach with a pina colada. I'm a happy girl.

I did make a nice purchase today with our honeymoon in mind...

I'm working on purchasing a two piece but that is going to take a few more crunches and miles... but I think I'll be ready for one come August - that's the plan anyway.

Mason Jars

I had to make a quick trip to Mississippi this weekend to see my Pawpaw. He has been in the hospital the past 3 weeks and it's not looking good. He is a fighter though. I've made this trip home a couple of times when we thought he was giving up on us, yet he always seems to fight through. Death is a tricky thing. As a christian, the thought of what's next is exciting yet almost morbid that we think that to someone who doesn't understand. Oh, Heaven... spending your life with Jesus for eternity. I always wonder what it will be like in those final moments between life and death.

On a lighter note, here's a photo of my Nanny & Pawpaw on their wedding day...

While home, I raided my aunts "green house" - (which is actually green, btw.) and go several mason jars for the wedding. I loaded up on few other "vintage" things for the wedding as well. It was fun. We had a crawfish-shrimp boil on Saturday too. It was fun to hang out with family.

I went to my home church on Sunday - Crosspointe Community Church. I love it there. I miss the simplicity of life in Laurel. Sometimes I wish I could just move back and live there. Life is just slower and sweeter it seems... granted there's a lot more drama since everyone knows you and your business, but then again... everyone knows you and your business and it's sometimes comforting.

My preacher, John is going to try to be a part of our wedding. He is in the National Guard and is on a very busy schedule this summer so when I heard he wasn't going to be able to do the wedding I cried like a baby, but he promised this weekend he would do his best to be there and have some part of the wedding. He said he's been waiting for this day since I was 14... which makes me laugh and nervous about all the things he could say at the wedding too! ha. I really hope he is able to make it. If it wasn't for his godly leadership in my life, I'm not sure where I would be today.

Save the dates go out today! The website is ready too...

I just ordered a few of these sweet things... in almost those exact colors... woo.

I also picked up my save the dates today... I'd say I was looking forward to sending them out... but the part where I'm dreading addressing them all keeps going through my head!

It should be fun though. Hopefully Cody's mom will help. I bet my mom's glad she is 8 hours away now! ha.

First shower coming up...

Save the Dates

Can't wait to send out our save the date postcards this week! They are at the printers right now and boy, I'm so pumped about them.

The printer is going to print everything for FREEEEEEEEE! It turns out his wedding is the same date as mine and he said I was like family so he wanted to do it. So wonderful. Such a blessing.

Bridesmaid Dress... Check!

We picked out the bridesmaid dress today! Thank God... I was worried I wouldn't find something and would have to resort back to a normal bridesmaid dress.

We went with a JCrew sundress.

It's all the colors I'm using and a perfect fit and style for the wedding and not a heavy material.... plus it's a dress the girls can wear again.

Did I already mention that I ordered my dress? Yep... a mori lee special... with pockets. Amen. I'm terribly excited to get it in and have it fitted. Can't wait.

Now on to tuxedos.... I'm guessing we are going to go with khaki... we'll see what the groom would like I suppose. :)

You're a peach...

We had engagement pictures this week! The day was beautiful.. but the pollen was plentiful. My eyes were swollen and I was so sick afterwards. I've taken two days off this week because of a sinus infection. No fun at all.

Here are a few of our favorites from the day...

I'm working on our save the date postcards right now and trying to start the invitations so everything matches. It's so tough deciding what to do but I think I'm going to keep it pretty simple so I don't kill myself over it.
Hopefully I can finish getting all the addresses this weekend and get them mailed out.
I'm also going with my three of my bridesmaids on Saturday to look at dresses. I'm planning on nailing it down so we can be done with that whole shebang.

Hopefully I'll be over this cold soon and get everything taken care of... lots to do.
I should make a to-do list... like now.

The date has been set! August 7, 2010...

Don't ask us what time yet... we haven't got that far in the planning process.

We visited 5 places yesterday and came out with a winner... Sunrise Farms.

The place was just enough country for me and the people were so friendly and helpful.

I thought the day was going to be awful... running around to each appointment and rushing through the venues but it wasn't like that at all. Cody had such a good attitude all day and managed my minor burst of freaking out very well. I love him. He puts up with a lot!

I did get sick coming down the mountain to go to the Gordon Lee Mansion. Maybe if I was driving it wouldn't have been so bad but being right on the edge of the mountain was terrible.

Speaking of, Gordon Lee was our second choice. It was great, but didn't really have anywhere for us to stay there.

Overall, it was a successful day and we're pretty excited and ready to start the planning now that we have the date and venue.

woo hoo! 125 more days. The countdown has begun.
