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.

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... www.codyandsheila.com

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.

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. :)

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'll be over this cold soon and get everything taken care of... lots to do.

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!
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.
