We're in the paper!

Our local paper puts the names of people who applied for a marriage license in the paper. :) I was so excited to see that! :)

Tonight I filled out the form for our engagement announcement to be in the paper. It should be in Monday's paper!

Speaking of marriage, or the opposite rather, I'm very disturbed and rather sad about Jon and Kate Gosselin. I loved watching them and I found it so sad to pretty much watch their marriage crumble as the show went on. :( I bawled like a baby during tonight's episode. So sad.

33 days!!!

Project Programs--COMPLETE!!!

They're done! And if I do say so myself..they look AWESOME!

This is what Reg does when Mom is busy with wedding stuff and Dad is at work. He goes to his crate, gets his blanket and lays down. He's such a good little guy...except when he has accidents on the carpet. lol

Here they are all printed...not sure why the second pile looks so much bigger--they're all the same amount of pages.

I took this picture around 10:30 after I had worked on these all of Friday night and from 3-11:30 Saturday. Being a bride-to-be is EXHAUSTING!

Starting slow...

Finished front!

First page

Ceremony page

Wedding party page

Thank You and In Loving Memory page

There they are in their basket!!

Project Programs... still continuing. Pictures to come soon!!

Only about 50 more to assemble!!

I think I can..I think I can...I think I can...

My printer is going to learn to hate me

As I sit here working on printing off 175 pages of each page of the program. 175*4=700 pages. Granted their not even half in theory only 350 pages.

Do you know what this means?

I'll be making a trip to Wal-Mart tonight to buy another ink cartridge. *sigh*

Oh well..Mom bought the one I'm using now. :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Making it Legal

My bosses let me have the afternoon off since we were slow today.

We used this time to get our marriage license. Quick and painless. I called a few weeks ago and found out all we needed were our driver's license, $20 cash, and for one of us to live in Dec Co (which we both do).

A few crazy questions (i.e. Are you related to the coapplicant?) and a few signatures later...

(Sidenote: I love how tan I look in this picture)

We're licensed to wed!!

Countdown: 39 days!!

39 days!!

Seriously, I NEVER thought it would ever be this close!!

Bachelorette Party

My bachelorette party was last night! It was soo much fun!!

We went out to dinner at Bazbeaux. Best pizza and salad with cucumber dressing EVER! It was delicious!!

My lovely BM, Brittany lives in Denver, so she wasn't able to make it to the party. She sent me her gift via Ash. She got me all kinds of goodies. She got me 2 sex books...and she took the time to put pink post-its on certain pages and wrote inside jokes on them. :)

This is a board you can give money and they'll put whatever you want on there. DDs are my girls from design school. DD=drunken designers

DDs! (Missing a few though)

These two girls I know through Jon. The girl in the middle is Mallory, she's really good friends with Jon and his friends. Ever since we met, we clicked right away and I love her. The girl on the right is dating one of Jon's friends. She's absolutely awesome. :)

This girl is my Jesska. We lived together for a year in college and stayed close even after she moved back home.

This is me and one of my BMs, Sammie. :)

This is me and my MOH Ash.

This is my favorite picture of the night. Me and my jesska who was my dancing partner most of the night. You can tell how much fun we had :)

Well, hello!!

Sorry for the lack of updates.

Last weekend we moved into our house so I spent all of last weekend and much of this past week unpacking, painting, etc etc. But we're here! And I love it even more than I ever thought possible! Pictures of the house are up in my bio. :)

So yesterday was my usual day off work (I had 2 days off this week to unpack the house. I NEEDED IT. Tuesday was stressful trying to paint the last room and get everything done. Yesterday, I actually got some wedding stuff done!! I cut cardstock for the programs. I need to buy more, but I have about 350 pages cut. That's roughly 75 programs. I'll need closer to 200. lol But hey, it's a start.

I assembled all of the favor boxes. And I cut out all the table squares!

Small checks, but they count!

Oh annnnd next weekend is my bachelorette party!! EEE!!

Tomorrow after work I'm going to run to my parents to get the rest of my stuff and make menu coasters most of the afternoon! It feels good to be moved in and settled.

Sucky thing is I still don't see Jon that much. He works 2 jobs.

Prime example is his schedule this weekend:
Friday: 6-11:30 (Job 1)
Saturday: 6-4 (Job 2), 6-12 (Job 1)
Sunday: 8-4 (Job 1)

Poor guy. :( I doubt he gets another Saturday night off until the end of the month.

Countdown: 50 days!!!
