Happy Holidays! Christmas Came Early @ Our Home!

Hello all! I don't really have any new wedding information, except that the proof has been approved for printing! SOOOOooooo, I figured I would take this time to wish you all a fantastic holidays and gloat a bit that I get 16 days off for Christmas! That's right, 16 DAYS!!!

While we are on the topic of Christmas, I will share the excitement of the past few days with everyone. On Saturday (happy birthday Jessie and Anthony) we had a Christmas dinner with our friends. As a direct result, ALL of our presents got opened. I am now the proud owner of the Full Metal Alchemist series (my ALL TIME FAVORITE anime series), the new Kingdom Hearts release of Chain of Memories, the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends DS game, and several gift certificates. Brock (the lucky bugger) is ecstatic about his brand new, wicked blue Guitar, complete with stand and R.E.M. music book. We also received a new Killer Bunnies game and an expansion for Descent. All in all a productive Christmas that is not even close to being over!

This is what my life has consisted of since the epic opening of the guitar. Well, at least I know that he is happy, and he can already play pretty good, so I am excited for him to hone his skills! Yay for the hot blue guitar!

I may not have much more until after Christmas, but Happy Holidays to all, and a Very Merry Christmas!

Oh Yeah, and less than 3 months till the wedding!!! Woot Woot!

It's beginning to look a lot like ... Wedding?

Hello everyone (if there is still anyone who reads this, it has been ages since I last wrote). We have been absolutely swamped in wedding, christmas, work and studying! Brock wrote the exam for his first CIP course on friday. I am excited to see how he did, I am sure he ace'd it (for all of the hours he spent on it)! We also chose our wedding invitations on friday. I am excited to see how they turn out. We should be getting a proof later this week and then it will take 10 days or so to get them!

In November, the Bridesmaids dresses arrived. I haven't had a chance to see them yet, but I hear that they are beautiful! Michelle's fit perfectly, Jessie's needs to be altered a bit (atleast I am not alone) and Renee didn't even try hers (you know, because she's not 8 months pregnant yet!). We also picked our JP. She is a fantastic, funny and kind woman. I am really looking forward to working with her. Now we just have to work in the scheduling of the actual day! I am having slight anxiety about how much that entails! We booked our DJ also. We decided to go with Bullet Music and we are excited to see how that turns out. I have heard lots of great things about them. Seems like everything is coming together. It is so hard to believe that there is only 3 months and 1 week left until the day.

I want to send a HUGE shout out to Trevor for helping us to design our CD booklets and prints! I think that so far they look amazing and stand in awe of your talent. I also want to thank Deb for all her hard work on the slide show and for ordering capes and shawls for the girls and I (THANKS MOM)!

I am sure there is stuff that I am missing, but now that I am in the mood for blogging again and have things to talk about, I will be back.

Oh ya, and I am looking for new Twilight news to keep me going now that the books and movie are all done for now...ANY news.
