Oops!

I feel like I’ve started nearly every entry the same way: “sorry”. I’ve been neglecting the blog and for that I apologize. However- we have actually been able to get a few things done!

A few weeks ago, my bridesmaid Caroline met Andrew and I out in Amherst and took our engagement pictures. We have only seen a few so far, but I am loving them already. Here are a few of my favorites:

Caroline and Paper + Frame did a great job setting everything up and making us feel comfortable. I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures!!

This past weekend I had the worst cold I’ve had in years. Probably ever. I’m relieved to be semi-over it.

Earlier today Drew, my mom and I met with Jennifer at CMS Flora in Bourne and talked flowers. She was able take all the pictures and descriptions I’ve been sending her over the past few weeks and visualize what we want. I feel so relieved to have the flowers under control. She talked to us about the centerpieces, the bridesmaids bouquets, my bouquet, the groomsmen and groom’s boutonnieres, corsages, and church flowers. And best of all- we came in under budget. PUMPED. Its so important to find a place that will actually sit and talk with you…I’ve read that a lot of places will just have you fill out a questionnaire 8 months before your wedding and you don’t hear from them until the day of. Ugh, I can feel my anxiety rising just thinking about it.

We also booked the hotel room where I will be staying the night before the wedding, getting ready the morning of, and where we will be staying the wedding night. The Flying Bridge Restaurant is owned by the Coonamesset Inn in Falmouth which is gorg. I was actually a contender for the reception. They gave us a 10% discount (hollaaaa) since we are using one of their restaurants for the reception. The wedding suite is HUUUUGE and so cute inside. The perfect amount of room for myself and the bridesmaids to get ready and for getting pictures taken.

I feel like we’ve made a lot of progress in the past few weeks. Its all little things & baby steps, but its going to help so much knowing that they are out of the way come crunch time. Only 8 more months to go! (i’m throwing up right now).

Until next time…hopefully sooner than later!

Long time.

Its been awhile…but only because there have been no new developments wedding wise! I’m starting to get anxious…I’m already stressed about my future stress that is waiting for me a mere few months down the road.

            We’ve mostly been talking about what we definitely want. As of right now, I think we’ve decided on dude attire, centerpiece designs, and place holders. I am STARTING to think about my dress, even though I am dreading it completely. I’m on pinterest 98% of the time when I’m at home, but the same stuff keeps popping up.

            We are also focused on the house and trying to avoid the daunting task of PACKING. I’m dreading that more than dress shopping, I think. It’s not that we have a ton of stuff, but packing and moving is never fun, no matter now rewarding the end result is. I was planning on packing a few things this past weekend, but I’m a clumsy fool and dislocated my knee. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering “how in the world did she do that?” and I wish I could respond with “oh you know, I’m so silly! I was just practicing my back flips!” But, I didn’t. I dislocated my knee while trying to SIT DOWN ON MY BED. Evidently I was at just the wrong angle and I heard this awful popping/cracking sound and the bottom half of my leg didn’t feel like it belonged to me. It popped right back in, but HO-LEE crap did it hurt. So, needless to say, I didn’t do much on Sunday what with being a cripple.

            This coming Friday I am going into Falmouth to have some florist consultations and block off some hotel rooms. I’m looking forward to actually finalizing SOMETHING! Then, Andrew and I are off to Monson/Sturbridge for the weekend for Jim and Erin’s wedding on Sunday.

            Hopefully…HOPEFULLY we will close on our house sometime next week. The suspense is actually killing me.
