Time flies...

I cannot believe we have just a little over 6 months to go! I am getting SO excited! It feels like this year has gone by so incredibly fast! It feels like it was just yesterday that Matthew proposed and it was Almost 9 months ago! I'm so ready for our day and I can't wait to be married to such an amazing person!!!!

We have finally made all the decisions we can make up to this point. We have the florist, we have a DJ, we have our invitations picked out! We also decided where we're going on our honeymoon and that we want to go right after the wedding!!!! It's been so long since either of us have been on a real week-long beach vacation and I think we'll be ready. Thankfully, Matthew has a few people working for him and feels comfortable trusting them to handle the business while we're on our honeymoon!

Now we just need a food tasting which won't be until probably December. So far this planning process has gone pretty smoothly... aside from a few minor speed bumps. I feel like we've had an awesome support system in my mom giving as much advice as she possible can, Matt's mom who's always willing to come to appointments, my sister who's trying to plan an awesome bridal shower & bachelorette party, and Matt's sister who's advice and ideas are amazing!

In non wedding news, we celebrated my nephew's first birthday this weekend!! I cannot believe he's one already! I can still remember just a year ago, dropping Teddy off at my mom's. Matt and I were going to Vegas to celebrate his brother's 30th birthday. I specifically told my mom I was worried Amber would go into labor while I was gone. She laughed and told me that would never happen! Feeling reassured we boarded the plane. Upon landing I turned my phone back on and sure enough had several voicemail messages from mom. "Amber's having contractions." "Amber's going to the hospital, you sure picked a good time to leave town..." ...Umm... someone promised this wouldn't happen!!!

Can you believe that little man went from this tiny little 3 lb 9 oz baby boy ... this adorable little toddler!? 


  1. I agree that this last year has gone SO fast.... I mean, I have a 3month old?!?!! Crazy.

  2. Yay for getting so much planning done! Doesn't it feel good?! I want to hear about your honeymoon plans, I didn't know you guys decided on a location!

  3. Yay for your upcoming wedding! Can't wait to see and hear your progress!
