Super Blogger this weekend

Yesterday ended up being a fantastic day! Mike and I drove up to Iowa to get a few things done. We spent about 5 hours there and accomplished so much! First, I tried on my actual wedding dress for the first time. I absolutely LOVE it! Nevermind the fact that I need to lose about 5 pounds and it's 2 inches too short... they swear to me they can fix it.. so all I can do is cross my fingers. And, as luck would have it, I found the most perfect shoes to go with my dress. The shoes literally look like they were made to go with the dress. My #1 find!! I LOVE it all! YAY!

Next, we went to a different tux place..Mike has already selected everything from Duckys but we weren't huge fans of the shirt they offer with their tuxes. After calling around and visiting another tux place, we decided to stick with the original place, we couldn't find anything we liked more.

Next stop, hair and makeup for me! My first pick of salons can only get me and my girlies in at 10am the morning of the wedding. That's a little early for a 4:00 wedding. William Wesley can get us in at noon. So, that being said, I tested the waters with them and loved both my hair and makeup!! That is a HUGE check mark "done" on the list!! I'm so relieved!

With all our accomplishments this weekend, Mike and I are both excited again! We were a little overwhelmed for a while!

Now, off to the gym!

they say a diamond is forever...

but the same doesn't go for the setting! my engagment ring spent the past week at the jeweler being modified a bit... the design was very unique and cool, but as mike and i have learned... there is a reason you don't see many two prong engagement rings out there. to make a long story short, the ring was not repairable.

luckily, we were able to find a nice sturdy 4 prong band that both of us liked :) and i was able to pick out mike's ring.
o, and no wedding band for me yet... not sure i need ALL the bling that comes with it's match ;)

p.s. it is still the same diamond, just a new setting

Check your mail boxes

Just a few updates, some of you have received the invites by now. One question that came up was kids dinners. If you have children who would prefer a kids meal no need to rsvp their choice. I will just assume if there are no initials for them they want chicken strips, fries and fruit.

Also, if you have any questions about hotels or have any trouble getting a room at the lodge call or email me! There are still rooms left in our block!

p.s. in a previous post i included the contact and phone number of who to call at the lodge.

a little peeved

invites are all set to go for the most part, but i'm just a little annoyed... call me crazy but it's really hard for me to throw them in the mailbox when it's 800% humidity and thunderstormy! i checked the forecast last night and this is what's being predicted for days to come! i'm going to wait it out, just remember...i need them back by july 1 :)
