6 weeks to go until the big day.
summer classes ended. finals over and done with. i’m all moved out. and i was on a flight home to GA yesterday.
i have about 10 days in town to figure this wedding stuff out before i’m back in UTAH for fall classes to start. james is busy being a world traveler right now in Argentina – visiting friends from his mission. i wish i could have gone with him, but the budget wouldn’t permit it.
anyway… my first night/day home has been successful. Mom and I did some thrifting and found a few “gems” to use at the reception. then we ate ourselves sick of tacos from a couple places. though taste testing to find the best carne asada is rather fun! salsas and dips and chips…my tummy is happy/full. also, i’m pretty sure we found our winner.
seeing as we want to have more of a “wedding party”…
this little guy that we found at Mercado Jalisco will be joining us:
i thought he was cute. a green bull!
he’ll really bring the FIESTA into it.
things are coming along nicely. i promise it’s all going to come together very well! – our country rustic bbq/mexican theme. Ha! odd? nah… we’re incorporating james and me very well into this. it’ll be a blast!
dress & shoes = puchased and perfectly fitted
suit & shoes = purchased (such a steal too!)
invites = printed… and now the fun fun addressing and stuffing needs to happen
menu = coming along nicely but needs some work still
cakes = it’s great having talented sisters and now sister-in-law!
decor = needs to be finalized with Lana
lots of little details to work out still…but i feel things are pretty under control and in good timing.
i’m excited for james to get home. and to go out and see Michael and June’s property (James’ brother+wife) where the reception will be held. i’ve seen pictures and have heard how ideal it is — finally i’m in town to see it!
bridal shower tonight!
i’m so blessed to have such great friends. My bestie, London, and her mom are throwing this for me. i feel very loved and grateful. can’t wait to see so many faces i’ve missed so much!
james needs to make it home from Argy not shot or robbed, plzkthanx…i miss him…
p.s. – remind me later to tell you all about how i’ve decided to cut out all processed foods from my diet. hahaha…
