Sunday Shower!!

Well today is our shower at church! I am so excited about it! It is not your normal shower at all. Its not really a shower and its not really a pounding.....its a cleaning shower! They decided to get Nathan and I things we needed for cleaning! Laundry detergent, dryer sheets, Pledge, Windex, etc. I think this is a fun twist on your normal shower! I will post pics later! I also still need to post pics from our shower last weekend that my bridesmaids threw me! It was great! Tomorrow we will have 19 days until the wedding! OMG can you believe it! Time is just starting to fly by! I sure hope that time slows down a little after the wedding so Nathan and I can have time to just enjoy each other. I tell you what though, I think we are both looking more forward to the trip to Florida! Neither one of us has had a vacation in a couple of years and it is looooong overdue! Well I guess I will post pics soon!

We only have 24 days until the wedding! Wow does time fly! I am getting so anxious for these next days to pass and FINALLY get married. We have so much to do it almost seems overwhelming! I keep making lists after lists of things to do/buy and they seem to be neverendingN!N These last few days Nate and I have sat down a few times and talked about these next few weeks and how both of our lives are fixing to change forever. We have talked about what it means to be a husband and a wife and how important it is to keep each other first in our relationship, right after God because without him, we would not be where we are today. I don't know that I have said it enough but I really am the luckiest girl in the world. Nathan is so good to me and I cannot wait to be married to him! Please pray for us and our families in these next few weeks. We are all very excited, nervous, stressed, etc. but I just want everyone to enjoy the time we all get to spend together and remember what that day really is all about. Sure Im excited about the amazing decorations and location of the wedding but I am honestly just excited to finally be marrying my soulmate. Thank you for all of the love and support from all of our friends and family!

I also will be posting pictures soon from our shower last weekend! My awesome Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids threw it for me and it could not have been more perfect! Thanks everyone!

Chrissy! :)


Wonderful Wednesday!!

Well I was just thinking about it and we are officially almost in the 20's on the countdown!! YAY!! I am getting so anxious and so nervous! There is still so much to do! I have started making a to-do list for things I need to get done every week until the wedding. Hopefully it helps! This weekend is my bridal shower that my bridesmaids are throwing me! Its the one we had to reschedule so I am getting super excited! I have the best group of girlfriends you can imagine! I love them to pieces! I got to see my bridesmaids dresses for the first time the other day and they were WONDERFUL! My future sister-in-law's mom is making them and they are turning out perfect! I would post pics but I want them to be a surprise! I also got my invites in the mail last week and am super excited about that. I hope that everyone loved them! Well I think thats about it right now but be looking for some pics from the shower this weekend!



40 DAYS!!!!

Well today offically marks 40 days until the BIG day! YAY!! We are getting so excited...and nervous! Not nervous about FINALLY getting married but nervous about getting everything done before September 19th! This week on the to-do list...invitations! We are supposed to be mailing out invitations this week. All we have left to do is insert the maps and RSVP cards and we are good to go! I addressed all last week so we are about finished with that part....and no, I don't have carpal tunnel yet! LOL! That is the most time consuming part and I am sooo glad its over! Mom and I also went to Hobby Lobby today (love it!) and bought a TON of ribbon for a project we are doing for the wedding as well as the hot pink cardstock we are using for the RSVP postcards! How fun! Hopefully I can figure out how to download a picture of our invitation and I will post it on here. It is super unique and I am super excited about sending them out!

Last Saturday was mine and Nate's family shower! I was super sad because Nathan got called to work for the first time since he has worked with Simmons and didn't get to come and enjoy his shower! We did get some awesome stuff and his aunt's really out-did themselves. We got a HUGE tent, air mattress, fold-up chairs, quilts, all of the camping equipment you can imagine plus more! Then we of course got some house-hold items from our other family members too! I think that besides all of the camping gear my favorite present had to be my Aunt Dar and my Mom's gifts. I opened mom's first. It was a beautiful cross for my cross wall (if you didn't know I do collect crosses) and she is having it engraved in memory of my Papa. It was so special to me. My Aunt Dar and my cousins MiKael and Shelley bought me 2 pictures...one of my Papa when he was 18 and one of my Memaw when she was about the same age. They are beautifully framed and I am so excited about hanging them! I am starting a wall of old timey pictures and these will be my first ones for the wall. My family is so supportive and so sweet and I could not ask for a better one! Well our next shower (bridesmaid's shower) is in 2 weekends and I am stoked about it!! It will be sooo great! I have the best friends and I just know they are so going to out-do themselves! I will try and post pics from our shower last weekend soon! I have to steal them off of my mom's memory stick!

Thanks all and keep Nate and I in your thoughts and prayers for our upcoming marriage please!
