I fail. blogging.

I swear, I try really hard to keep up with this; but it's almost like a job. It's not easy. I'm embarrassed of the fact that I haven't written anything since Easter. I wish I could promise you that this won't happen again...but I can't. So I apologize in advance. There's a lot going on right now that derails my desire to blog.

Planning my wedding has literally taken over my life. But I'm okay with it. This is probably my biggest excuse for not blogging. We are now almost two months out until the big day. My excitement for it is overwhelming. We've been getting a lot done over the past few months and things are falling very nicely into place. I've collected all my vases for the centerpieces and I am well on my way.

Invitations were sent out Monday afternoon, and people are starting to receive them. We were so incredibly fortunate that my cousin owns a print shop and made our invitations for FREE! It's an amazing wedding gift and we will be forever thankful.

My bridal shower is next weekend and I am so excited. It will be my first wedding event; sort of like my "kickoff" to the wedding festivities. I also found the perfect bridesmaids gifts and I can't wait to give them to the girls.

Today the girls and I started to book our plane tickets to Las Vegas for my bachelorette party. We are going the first weekend of August and it can't come fast enough. The majority of the girls I invited are all going; so it will be a full house. Nine girls (including me) are ready to help celebrate my last Vegas trip as a single lady. I'm looking forward to all the memories we will be creating, and all the stories we'll be reminiscing about over years.

Since the wedding is only two months away, we're getting down to the wire with all the small details. Favors need to made and programs need to be printed. Everything is starting to be finalized with the vendors; food, music, photos and decorations. I've been channeling my inner craft-self, and I made my card box for the wedding. All the ones I've seen in stores or online are fairly expensive...and I knew that it was something easy to make. A simple trip to Michael's for a three dollar mini glue gun, some ribbon, wrapping paper and old shoe boxes did the trick. And viola!


Today is July 1st, and I'm not quite sure where the time has gone. From this point on, every weekend until the wedding is completely booked. Our annual family camping is coming up in a few weeks and I'm beyond excited to go. I didn't think I was going to make it this year, but I managed to squeeze in a four day weekend of some relaxation and fun in the sun. Now that is something to look forward to.

It's going to be a busy weekend, full of friends, family, birthday parties, barbeque's and fireworks. Have a safe weekend!

Happy fourth of July!
