10 Days Until Christmas...

...and SURPRISE!  I'm not done shopping!! :) I'm never done until Christmas Eve!! I finally figured out what I'm getting my Secret Santa for the Dickson family exchange and I'm pretty darn excited about it. We finally put up our Christmas tree and I have to say it looks pretty cute. I didn't think I wanted to do a Christmas tree this year because our living room is small and awkwardly set up so there's not a good space for a Christmas tree. We ultimately decided we couldn't do a Christmas without a tree so we made some space and put it up! I snapped this adorable picture of my baby bug sitting in front of the tree earlier this evening.

Really, how cute is he?!

I also just ordered part of my gift for my bridesmaids and am REALLY excited about it! I wish I could show someone. It's going to be hard keeping it all to myself!!

Happy to report that I've been working on my fitness! And it's a good thing b/c we have a little less than 5 months left until the wedding. I for one am not noticing a difference which definitely DOESN'T help with motivation. Yet, I continue to do it... 3-4 days a week... :)

I'm in the process of scheduling our food tasting which is tentatively set for January 4th! This is something we are really looking forward to. I feel like it will make me feel like the major planning is officially done and it will just be those little things left. OH, and we have a date and place for my friends bridal shower! 

Matthew and I went and ordered  his wedding band on Saturday and I'm OBSESSED with it! It was a preferred customer's weekend at the jewelry store and we walked out with a set of Waterford drinking glasses - for FREE! Matthew's ring was special ordered because of the finish we wanted and we were told it would take about 5 days to get it in. Imagine our surprise when we got a phone call on Tuesday that the ring was in! I rushed over after work to pick it up, super excited to have Matthew try it on as soon as I got home! This really nice guy helped  me out and said that yes, our ring had definitely come in. He goes to the back to get it and take it out of the little plastic bag it's in's not our ring. ;o( so disappointing. Apparently the ring we want had the same SKU as a different ring that's shown online and that's what was sent in place of ours. Definitely a disappointment but we were able to easily get over it considering we weren't even expecting it until the end of the week anyway. I'm hoping for a phone call tomorrow to let us know the one we actually ordered is in! In any case here is a picture of what the ring looks like...
I love it because it's very simple but still very masculine. I'm glad Matthew loves it as much as I do!

So far this planning process has been pretty stress-free and I love that!   

Sunday is my wonderful future hubby's birthday so we're going to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner tomorrow night with some of our friends! Can't wait to have some Benihana in my belly!! I love when Matthew's birthday rolls around because we get to  be the same age again for about 25 days! ;)

    January 4th is going to be a fun day for both of us - that's my next ultrasound!
