How many days are left?!

Not enough! I'm cracking down to make sure I have each detail just right and complete. I think we did really well with the pillars and flowers.
We had the inspiration from my fianc├ęs grandmother and mothers favorite flowers. So we knew we wanted to try for white roses and, if possible, blue carnations. I saw these at Wal-Mart once and wished I could've found them in fake flowers.
But we went with others to try to match it as best as possible. In the end, it came to be something beautiful and just as well.
I've also been working on the chocolates needed and trying my best to get them just right. 

In the midst of everything, I took Memorial Day to enjoy my family. It is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of planning and details. Especially when you are feeling like it is more of a chore than a joy. I took a step back to connect with my kiddos.
We talked about what Memorial Day is for. Why we celebrate it. My darling husband-to-be even grilled dinner.
We topped off the night with s'mores!
We made our funny faces, told goofy jokes, and added to the happy memories that will go on for the rest of our lives. I needed to remind myself that there is more than just working towards this Saturday. We have a life going on in between.


  1. You looked alot thinner already! You look fantastic! Cant wait to see all pictures and live facebook please try to make it happen! Are your entire family there yet?

    1. Thanks! I'm starting to work out and cut back on eating. I will try, but I don't know who will be able to do it for me. My family left last night.

  2. No. We leave tonight for the 20+ hour drive. Looking forward to being there. Getting house cleanish before we leave. Can't wait to see you all.
