I'm a slacker (240)

I'm back. Oh dear, I am a slacker. In my defense, I have been quite busy with my man. He's first priority when we're in the same zip code. :)

As for wedding stuff...I haven't done much planning for the wedding itself, but we are looking into housing options. Michael and I will be meeting with a real estate agent on Saturday which is very exciting. Hopefully we'll  have an idea of what we'll be able to afford after meeting with her.

I'm in Nebraska right now, and before I leave I'd like to get Michael's finger sized so that I can buy his wedding ring. :) I get giddy when I think about him wearing one. Yes, I'm a dork. I'd also like to get the marriage license before I leave, but I don't know when we'd have time to do that. Michael's work schedule always throws a wrench into things.

Girl's Bouquets (255)

I love this for the girls. I want them to carry something very simple and easy to handle. I think this may just do the trick :)

Centerpieces :) (257)

I love Kristen Nupson. She found these adorable centerpieces and sent me a link :)

Oh Life...(260)

Drat. Forgot to post yesterday. I have a feeling that is going to happen a lot in the next month. I have finals next week. Joy. And THEN Michael is coming out to see me and then I'm going to fly back with him for 2 weeks :) I'm so excited! I really haven't done anything wedding related in a while (maybe you could tell from my lack of eventful posts? :P) Really my main focus has been on school...or avoiding school. It's over soooo soon and I can't wait :D

Shoes? Check! (263)

I GOT MY SHOES!!! :) Just picked em up at Payless and I'm wearing them now. They're super adorable and exactly what I wanted. I just wish that I had my dress now...I just have to wait till January!

Tattoos (264)

I really don't want to step on any toes, but this is a huge pet peeve of mine. I hate tattoos in general. I really do. I don't find them attractive in any way and they only look more disgusting with age. Sorry. All of this to say that I'm so glad that my bridesmaids do not have tattoos. I've heard of so many brides who have to worry about hiding their bridesmaids tattoos or having them show in the wedding and I'm just so relieved that I don't have to deal with that. Cause really, what's more tacky than a pretty, elegant wedding with a tattooed arm, leg or back? Yuck.

I'm a frugal bride (265)

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue

Hmm...more like this:

Something old, nothing new
Something borrowed and something used

But I'm definitely not complaining! This is a very good thing :D

Alterations! :) (266)

I got the dress hemmed! It looks SO much better now, AND I can actually move it it! I have to admit...I was getting kind of worried that I wasn't going to be able to walk around in it without holding up my skirt, but after Rosa hemmed it, it's perfect! I also got it bustled so I won't have to deal with the train at the reception. Overall, it cost over half of what the dress cost, but it makes it look so much better and it's totally worth it to have it done by a professional.

Dress Fitting Tomorrow :) (267)

Well, tomorrow is my dress fitting! Really the dress just needs to be hemmed, but it'll be nice to have that done with. I don't remember if I wrote about this or not, but my mom found a slip to go with the dress at a thrift store for a dollar. A DOLLAR! This is particularly amazing because David's wanted $140 for a slip almost identical to the one we just bought. The one my mom found is a size 20 and I need a 6, but we shouldn't have any trouble taking that in. My shoes aren't in yet, so I'm going to have to find a pair that I own with 2.5 inch heels so that I'm the proper height for the fitting. So excited! :)

More Prettiness (268)

I can't remember if I posted this picture yet or not - I had it saved on my computer. I just love how low and simple it is. It looks like people can carry on a conversation over it AND it's gorgeous :)

Cupcake Bar (269)

Adorable idea. These are the cupcakes and then there is a ton of different syrups, berries, candies, nuts, sprinkles - whatever! Each guest gets a cuppycake and then they can put whatever they want on it. YUMMY!
