17 and counting!

Only 17 days left until the wedding! I'm getting my final checklist done but it's the little thing that are starting to bug me. I've found a photographer and our music is getting put on CD, but the little things like buying underwear, getting back response cards, buying more jars and candy are starting to bother me. Perhaps some yoga tonight will do this body some good.
Also annoying is that we still haven't found our wedding bands. I looked in every single box in the garage and Daddy looked in the storage unit. But, when I asked Daddy about looking in the storage unit he said he looked for the box he thought they were in, not in every box! Ugh! Men sometimes!

Mommy Day for Me!

This post is a little late in developing due some some computer problems. Hopefully, all is well now.
Saturday was spent with my Mom lazing about playing cards and eating well while the kiddos splashed and laughed and screamed in the little pool outside until trembly voiced faces peered in through the screen saying, "M-m-may I h-h-h-have a to-o-o-wel-l-l, I'm fweeeeeezing." My Dad's BBQ chicken is the best! Our gift to Mom was one of those digital picture frame keychains. I figured it was the best gift for a Grandma with five grandchildren she wants to show off. Mom even got me a gift of bathtime indulgence. Now the only thing I need is a coupon for time free from child interruption while I take a bath.
Mother's Day brought me a breakfast not made by me to my favorite spot on the couch with complete control of the remote - chick flicks at my beck-and-call! Then Daddy and I spent some time going through the shed trying to find those wedding rings we bought four years ago before the wedding was post-phoned so many times. Did we find them? Not yet. Knowing our luck, they're in the garage. But we did find so many other things we'd forgotten including the card I got last Mother's Day from the kids... it still makes me laugh.
In the evening, we went to the bridge crossing ceremony for Miss M-bug, my best friend's daughter (who is Josie's best friend). This little Daisy scout is now a Brownie and still just as sweet.
Then it was time for dinner made by Daddy: Grilled shrimp over pasta! Yummy!
A great Mother's Day!

Licensed on Odd Day!

I am soooooo excited!!!!!! Can you tell?
We just got our marriage license on Odd Day. Didn't even know it till after we picked it up. Turns out Odd Day only happens six time in a century! I'll definitely have to remember this.
Good times with the wedding dress. Took the dress to my seamstress today because the dress fits everywhere except the bust. Peter loves this but it makes finding dresses impossible for me. They usually fit everywhere but the bust or I find one to fit the bust and they hang everywhere else. So the seamstress looks at the dress and asks how it fit when I tried it on. I tell her it was about 2 1/2 inches from zipping all the way up but I've lost about an inch or so since because I starting going back to yoga class. She wants to wait three weeks and see where I'm at before she even touches my dress because I may not need it!!! Woo Hoo!
38 days and counting!
