So many plans!

I've been slacking lately. Ok, so I've been really slacking lately. I don't know where this weekend went! I guess I should catch y'all up to speed.

The interview on Thursday went great! The guy doing the interview was super nice and he practically offered me the job on the spot, but I am still waiting for the official word. Even if the job is pretty much just calling alumni from my school and informing them of upcoming opportunities, it will still give me something to do 2-4 times a week. And we can pick what days we want to work Monday - Thursday. And you won't hear me complain about an extra paycheck every few weeks. Overall, I have a pretty good outlook on this job. Get back to me in a few weeks, and I may have a change of heart. 

Friday I headed home for the long weekend. My parents took me to my old high school's football game. Talk about time warp! I felt so out of place. But then I found two of my brother's friends who are five years older than me and I didn't feel so bad anymore. And it was nice to see old family friends and show off the rock on my left hand :)

Saturday we met my aunt, uncle, and two cousins at the beach. This aunt is the one who was diagnosed with breast cancer about 4 months ago and it was the first time I had seen her since the chemo started. It was heartbreaking to see her bald scalp underneath her ball cap, but she was a trooper and you would never know she was sick!

Sunday was filled with more family time and wedding plans! I'm pretty sure we found a band for the reception. This is all getting so exciting. It is really starting to feel real. Only 11 months to go!

Monday I was supposed to go back to school, but the wedding was so bad I decided to stay an extra night. It was a good decision :)

Wedding Plans so far:
Church: check
Reception venue: check
Wedding band: almost
Colors: purple and looking for the right blue
Guest list: 398 and climbing...oops!
And I'm asking my bridesmaids in a few weeks!

That guest list will be the death of me, though.


  1. Yay for wedding plans!! I have to say, I'm a little jealous. We did a civil ceremony which was actually really nice, and we plan to do a reception sometime in the future, but it would have been nice to have the church wedding, with the big white dress, so, I'll be living through you and your wedding plans. LOL

  2. I think the church wedding is so important to us because it gives us a little glimmer of "normal life". Plus my dad is a preacher and I think my parents would kill us if we didn't do it up big. But it is getting out of hand! I'll be sure to post as many details as I can so you can follow along. Feel free to post suggestions! I'm always up for options. Thanks for reading!!
