Goin' to the Chapel...

... In SIX days!!!!

I honestly cannot believe our WeDDing wEEk is FINALLY here! After 15 months of planning our thoughts, ideas, and dreams are coming to life!

All weekend I've been thinking about how crazy (and exciting) it is that this is the last week with my current last name. This is the last week that I'll be wearing one ring instead of two. It's the last week that Matthew will be without a ring! In less than a week I'll be a wife and I'll have a husband - an amazing one at that! THIS TIME NEXT WEEK I'LL BE MARRIED!!

Planning our wedding has been amazing, fantastic, crazy, stressful, wonderful, scary, humbling, and overwhelming at times but I would not change anything about it if I could and I absolutely cannot wait to see how it all comes together next week!

We have had such an amazing support system throughout this process and I don't know how I'm ever going to thank our family and friends enough for their love and support. We have such thoughtful, kind, loving (and creative) people around us and we would not have been able to plan what I know will be the most beautiful and perfect day of our lives without their help!!

I have a busy week ahead of me... my To Do List is growing! But for every stressful moment I have this week I know they will all be well worth it when the clock hits 4:30 on May 5, 2012. I can't wait to be married to the man of my dreams, to the person who makes me whole, to my soul mate!!!

I have found the one whom my soul loves.

I am a terrible blogger. I know this. You don't have to tell me!

My last post was back on March 6th just as we were getting ready to send invitations out! Well, the invitations are out, and we've gotten most of our response cards back already!

The past few weeks have been incredibly busy though and I'm loving every second of it. I've been to 2 baby showers, 2 bridal showers (my own) and my bachelorette party! I feel as though these events have prepared me for the main event in T minus 23 days!! I can't believe how fast time has passed!

I've been swimming in wedding stuff and although I LOVE planning our wedding, Matthew and I are ready for it to be here! I'm wondering what I'll do with my time when I'm not meeting with vendors or calling make up artists, choosing hair styles and bridesmaid shoes, picking out groomsmen suits and ties, deciding on scriptures and program wording. Whatever will I do with myself after May 5th? Blog more? I'll work on it.

I have to say, I feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people who are willing to have me delegate to-do items to them and help make our day perfect!

Here are some pictures from my pre-wedding weekend of fun!
