Is the new Friday!! At least for me it is. And just for this week. :) Today is  my last day of work for the week! I have five -count it, FIVE whole days off in a row. That's a full length vacation for me!! It's a much needed vacation. What am I going to do with my time off, you ask? On Friday I'm going to Chicago! Matt's sister, Marie, lives in Chicago and just had a baby!! We are going for a long weekend to spend time with Marie, Joseph, and baby Benjamin! Matt's whole family is going and I'm really looking forward to it! On Saturday night we'll go to Missy's bachelorette party which will obviously be fun (I can't say what we're doing yet, it will ruin the surprise for Miss)!!

Here's to hoping this work day flies by!! :)

Happy May!!

We officially have 360 days, 20 hours, and 3 minutes until we are husband and wife!! And. I. Can't. Wait! Sorry I can't give you a count down including the seconds remaining - there's no app for that. I am ecstatic that I can finally say that we are getting married in less than a year! Now let's just hope the next 360 days go by FAST! It's hard to believe that we have an entire summer (and winter- bleh) before we are married but I just know it's going to be worth the wait! We're going to have the wedding of my our dreams, but right now we're enjoying being engaged! :) says we should be starting our guest list, envisioning our wedding style and colors, choosing our wedding party, planning our reception menu, and getting in wedding day shape. Already? Oops. A little behind on that last one. The one thing I am kind of dreading is picking our flowers and centerpieces. Why, you ask? Wellll....I have a lot of ideas but the thought of having to pick out flowers makes me think $$ (I have absolutely no idea how much flowers cost) and that scares me! I am nervous that the ideas I have aren't going to be feasible.

In other wedding news, I have been trying to think of cute manly ways to ask his friends to be his groomsmen. My favorite idea so far is so ask them to go to a beer tasting and ask them then. Lucky for him there's a beer fest at the Convention Center...NEXT WEEKEND!

We have a few weddings coming up and I have started looking for some cute dresses to wear to them. I saw one in a magazine that I love, but apparently it's not being sold anywhere anymore! HELP! Who can help me find this dress?
It's a Simply Vera by Vera Wang dress which they normally have a Kohls, however, opon looking at the Kohls website it appears this dress is no longer available! >:o/

Also, I want to cook dinner for my future hubs this week!'s a surprise! I am totally nervous about this because I never cook. I mean, why should I when my handsome fiancé enjoys it so much? I can't take the fun out of it for him! Any ideas for what to make for dinner? I definitely want to make our Parmesan Crusted Chicken, but I need something to pair with it. We usually make our grilled salad with it, but...I don't know how to use the grill. Soo, I need something else. I was thinking maybe pasta. Whatever it is, I am hoping I don't screw it up! Hehe
