The days are closing in

The days are closing in on the wedding...and there is so much left to do! Heres my update on the wedding... Dress is tight, but the bridal pictures are done and turned out good. I will post some when the wedding is over. It rained that day so I had to choose an inside facility instead, still turned out very unique. My shoes killed me, so i must fine some flats for the reception. I had a friend where tennis shoes...always a possibilty :) Bridesmaid dresses came in...I like them alot, they did look a little mustard yellow at first...but they are just that old gold. Still pretty, cant wait to see the girls in them! I went to get a veil today and the lady was so great and so nice...since she knows my mom, she gave us the veil for free!! Can you believe it, she made our day :) Our original minister had to back out due to medical issues, so we ended up using our pastor from church, Jeff Warren. And he is absolutley fabulous, im glad it worked out. Jake is going to go to Texoma for a weekend for his bachelor party in August. Im sure they will have a great time. For my bachlorette party...we're not so sure on the plans but we will for sure make it fun!haha. I am so pumped about our rehearsal dinner, almost as much for the wedding. Its going to be at my stepdad's backyard (1acre, huge pool) and its a luau theme. I just got my dress for that and we are going to have so much fun. We will be roasting pig and such...haha jk. But there will be an awsome slideshow :) My mom, as our gift for the wedding, hired a videographer. Isnt that awsome?! Thats something we cut out of our budget b/c we couldnt afford it and i still really wanted that memory to look back on. Not just in pictures, but to actually see us and our friends and family. Very cool!
Jake and I made a yummy homemade surprise for our out of town guests....its going to be delicious and memorable! Lets see, what else....haha not much else even going on in my life. This is my life. I do tend to wonder, what the heck am i going to do with myself when the wedding is over?! haha should be ineteresting.
