The Wedding Bells have chimed!

Well, now that all the wedding nonsense is over and done with, we can get back to reality. The final days leading up to the wedding were a big blur. So much to do and not nearly enough time. The day Julie arrived, we made it a point to simply pamper ourselves. We knew that once the wedding stuff started, that would be it. So, we got our nails done, pedicures and went to the spa. It was wonderful to spend time with her, just the two of us.

Thursday was a whole different story. We drove to my mom's first thing in the morning and got started on the last minute to-do list. Little things like folding the programs and stuffing the place-card holders. Then Thursday evening my girls (most of them) took me out for an awesome bachelorette party! We had soooo much fun!

Friday was a whirlwind. I really have no idea how people get married in the morning. Our wedding was at 7pm and we STILL didn't get everything done! In terms of the ceremony, just about everything that could have gone wrong, did. But, all in all it was a gorgeous ceremony and we were so lost in each other that we hardly noticed.

The reception was held in my parents' back yard and was perfect. All went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time! We received many very generous gifts and enjoyed the company of all our family and friends.

Saturday we headed home to take Julie to the airport and then headed to Palm Springs. It wasn't a honeymoon...we'll be taking that next year. But we got a little getaway. Had a great time and I even got a massage.

Today is my last day off of work...really makes me sad. I love my job, but I can't wait to be home with my family more. Pictures of the wedding are coming, as soon as we receive them.

Long time no blog

Well, it's been a while, but there hasn't been much to report. We're nearly done with everything we need to do for the wedding. We'll meet with our florist next week, and then all we need is the food, which we can do the week of. I'm thrilled that it's so soon...only 20 days to go. All the guys have been fitted for their tuxes, which is a huge relief. And I bought all the cake supplies yesterday. Will be making that next weekend after my shower.

The boys are doing well. Jordan has been in underwear for weeks now, but we still use diapers for nap/bedtime. He hasn't quite gotten the hang of that yet. And he seems to save poop for the diapers. Really unsure of how to break that habit and get him to go in the toilet.

We're hanging out with Uncle Mike and Auntie Adrienne today...probably heading to Boomers for some miniature golf!
