I have a new found gratefulness. I am grateful for all those people that create and print the programs for everything. I think I have spent countless hours working on my wedding program. I feel that I finally have everything set and done though. Right now I am printing it out to see if I have all the music and typing set up on the right pages. (who would have thought it would be so hard?) When it is all done, I will provide a picture of it, (after the wedding) to show what it looks like.

I realized with my 12 hour work days, I never said how grateful I am for those in the Military. I wish all companies would respect that, and honor memorial day, by not being open. To those in the military, thank you for your service.

10 days

So with 10 days, I have started my thank you cards. I don't have much to put in them other then "Dear......... Thank you for ............" and then I make each one sound different. I say something like "attending our wedding, joining us in our special day, being a part of our special day, making the trip to see us get married." I figure it is important that everyone gets a nice and unique card. Especially since they made the trip to go to mine and my fiance's wedding. 

Let's see, I am so close to finishing those programs, and to getting everything set so I can work on the escort cards. I really hate how it feels like everything is now down to the wire. I wish I could just get it all done right now, and not have to worry about it.

Changes to blog

So I have been playing around with my blog today and making some changes to it. I want this blog to reflect me and my personality. I really hope that you all like the changes that I have made. I finally figured out how to add buttons and a signature to my blog. I still cannot for the life of me get my blog title centred or center my blog. So readers, now it is up to you. I have gone into the design template and changed that, I have added a ccs thingy too  that was suppose to make everything centered. What other ideas do you have for me? 

Also, if you  have noticed things that seem out of wack, please let me know. As I said, I will be changing things up and playing around with my blog to make it more me.  I would like to give recognition where it is owned. A lot of the side buttons and fancy things added to my blog I found at Shabby Blogs. It is a cool website where I can get stuff to make my blog look cute. 

What's left

I still need to contact the priest and finalize the program with him. Table assignments and escort cards. I feel that is all that I have left. But is it really?

I need to get some more candy, and work my but off to look good still, and make sure I sleep. I think that is it. But is it?

AHHH. Please leave a comment  with some things I may be missing.

Favors are the brides and grooms way of saying thank you to all the guests. Some times the favor could be extravagant, sometimes it could be simple. For me, I like the best of both world.  I am doing a candy buffet, with lost of different options, for all the guests. They will be able to put all their candy in little boxes ( I don't have a picture right now). But the boxes are pink and going to go with the theme very well.  
 The candy will be yummy.
 So far on the list I have:
  Jordan Almonds
these will be in tulle bags with this little poem attached. 
Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat

To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
Five wishes for the new husband and wife 
Health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life
Lollipops- in a lollipop bouquet (it's all done and at my step mom's house!)
Kisses and hugs
Salt Water Taffy
Pixie Stixs and those candy sticks
My mom is looking into Cotton Candy
Snow Drops
Candy dots/buttons 
Some type of Caramel

I know, it's a long list. But If I can get all that candy, I will have it all. If not, then there is just less candy for the guests to choose from.  Anyways, YUM!

 A year ago yesterday, I was moving into my apartment and there were tornadoes. A few miles away,  a poor little puppy was running around. He got lost in the storm and ended up at the Humane Society.  My poor little Winston.  When I got him, he was super, duper thin.  In fact, you could see all of his ribs. Now that he's plumped up, he looks so much healthier. Next week he is going to the vet, for all of those check ups. I hope everything will be good. 

Having a dog has taught me a lot. The first thing, is your life is not your own any more. You need to remember to feed him (If you don't they throw up). Remembering to let them go outside when they wake up and after they eat, and any other time they need to go out.  Walks, baths, toys. they are a lot of work. But they are also so very cute. I'm come one, look at his face. Does that not say "cuteness"?

The due date for all my RSVPS are tomorrow. Since they are going to my mom's I don't know much about who has an who hasn't RSVPed. I don know who has said no, so I'm going to take it that everyone else has said yes. In that count, it means that I have about a 6% decline rate. (If I did my math correctly).  I do wonder why people take so long to RSVP.  I know some don't know their guest, or if they can make it,  but what about those couples that don't RSVP in time? I saw this on another blog and thought it was very cute.. 

 I''m not feeling this way about my RSVPs(maybe I will if we don't get them all back) but I'll see. I know people are busy. 

So, with RSVPs come table places and escort cards. Instead of doing table numbers, I'm doing names(and they are names of famous couples. I think that will be really cool and unique. What a better way to celebrate love then with famous couples about love.

I'm going to see if I can get the pictures of my invitations up here off my flash drive. My invites were done by m Step mom. She is a wonderful person, and truly deserves props for these. They are awesome, and she did them by hand to. These invites are beautiful. I will start by putting a picture of all the invites(STD's Bridal Party and Wedding)

I designed the Save the Date (or in wedding talk STD) 
My mom did the Bridal Shower invite (nice, simple with some sparkle- perfect)
and my step mom did the invites

This picture is the front of the invitation, closed:

Now we have close ups: (again my step mom really outdid herself, these are beautiful invites)

The reply card!

The Kangaroo Pocket

The whole thing!

As I said these are beautiful invitations. I really hope that all my guests love them as much as I do. 


 My computer died on me this weekend. Ugh. After 5 years, and every year having to get anew hard drive, when all I do is use it for the basic stuff plus surfing the web it died, died, died. So I had to buy a new computer, which so far,seems to work for a bit, then it dies. I think technology hates me, or, I do something t it, through my skin. I seriously hate how technology never works for me. It is very upsetting.
So with my computer dying I was worried I lost all my wedding stuff. Thankfully, I didn't lose all of it. YAY. But talk about stress. I had no idea what to do, and really started to freak out. I mean how can this happen now, of all times.

Why do dogs do the things they do?

Winston today was all about curling up next to me, or on my lap and sleeping. If I  moved he would look at you  like "Why are you moving?" I feel that he would have been happier with a stuffed animal.  Or a bone. Sometimes I wonder what goes through his little head. Like, how does he feel when I leave for work each morning.  How happy is he when I play fetch with him. Why does he like yo sit on my feet.  There are so may things I wonder about with him. If you have any ideas please let know.

The wedding countdown has begun. (actually it began the minute we finalized a date. At that point I remember being like 500 days or something from the wedding and it seemed so far away.)
No, I'm only 23 days from the wedding. On Friday I'm gonna finish paying off the cake. Which will be very yummy and  will be a surprise for all the guests. I can't wait to see their response. 

         One thing I know people will like will be my shoes. I originally wanted a pair of shoes named "the Dani" but after trying them on and seeing them in person, they fell just a little short. :) So I went on a search for shoes and found the perfect pair. 

                The shoes are Touch up's Brie. They are very comfy. I've worn them a few times to break them in and I know I will have to wear them more. So far I've gotten up to bout 5 hours of being able to wear them straight with out pain. I hope to spend an entire day in them so I will be set for the wedding. 
                       The fabric the shoes  are around came from my dress. I'm using that fabric to wrap my bouquet. The flowers will be another blog post (so you have to some back ;)

My Wedding

 My wedding is June 8th, 2012. I am so excited for it to happen. It's coming on very fast, but with all the bumps in the road, I cannot be more excited. I feel very lucky to have met the love of my life at such a young age, and am very lucky to be able to look forward to the next 50+ years with him. (hopefully)

I'll post more about the wedding later, but to sum it up, I want the wedding theme to be romantic and sweet. I want to be able to look back at my wedding pictures and smile. 


  This is my first blog. I don't know what I want to get our of this blog, other than to share my thoughts and ideas. I may share about my upcoming wedding, my dog, or my hobbies. I shall see where this blog takes me.
