Tireless Details

So it's been a while since my last post. I've been pretty busy with life lately. 

I just spent a week in DC on a conference trip for work as well as being gone the weekend before and after. I got back late Sunday and had an 11 hour work day yesterday. Needless to say, I am pooped and very much so looking forward to a three day weekend.

On the wedding front, things are progressing, but not too much at the same time. Rob and his guys were supposed to go together to get fitted Saturday on their way back from their boys weekend in Potsdam, but they were a few minutes late to the store and couldn't get fitted. So when that gets done is up in the air now. 

We changed directions on centerpieces, again, and I have now committed by buying materials to make them. I need to purchase some more tiger lilies, but it looks like we have the idea nailed down by now. And speaking of centerpieces, I need to email our coordinator about votive candles. I don't remember if they provide them or not. 

My mom ordered us a bunch of stuff too. Favor bags, tulle, and some other decorations type things. We plan to order the favors soon too. And another thing I need my momma's help with will be steaming all the creases and wrinkles out of the linens then rerolling them so they won't crease back up. I also bought different jewelry. I found stuff I liked better for less money so I'm hoping I can maybe sell the jewelry on the Knot classifieds or something. 

Invitations are the next project. We hand delivered a few so far, like to our parents and a few of our attendants. I'm going to make putting together, stuffing and addressing invitations my project for next week so I can have them in the mail during the first week in March. 

But otherwise I think that's about it. Once we hit the three month mark I'll start making final meeting with all our vendors which will be really exciting.

Anyways, as of today there are only 109 days left. Getting dangerously close to the double digit count down now. That's three months, 2 weeks and 6 days left.
