Still nothing yet....

We did meet with two venues. We loved the first one. We tried to book it, but turns out the coordinator we spoke with is out of the office at the moment. WHEN IS SHE COMING BACK?????

I'm going nuts over here! They have blocked off a date for us, but we are ready to finalize/confirm/reserve/pay up suckah. Now. Yesterday. Actually, a week ago tomorrow, but who's counting the days, really?

It is highly aggravating because we have to complete this booking before booking the photographers (who, by the way, are available, yay!) and the DJ and all the other crap.

In more important news, I bought my dress last week. My wedding dress. It has been purchased. It will arrive in six months. My dress. *sigh*

I will keep you posted regarding the date thing.

Looking like...

This thing is finally going to happen.

SB and I are getting ready to set a date. A wedding date. I know, hello from the land of the perpetually engaged, we're moving on out.

We had The Discussion a few weeks ago, and things have been moving along since then. We will visit some venues next week, and hopefully finalize The Date.

I'm already feeling some stress, which is probably ridiculous, but whatever. I really want to finalize the date because I have a very specific photography studio in mind, and if we don't get them, I will lose my mind, I think.

That being said, I don't want to rush into a venue that isn't just right.

Then there is The Dress. We have done one round of shopping, and I think I found The Dress. It is slightly over budget, so I'm hoping to find it cheaper somewhere, or to talk down the lady I originally spoke with. Or a cheaper dress that is better. Which is unlikely. Going out for Round 2 next week.

So that's what's going on here. Big stuff. Making autumn very busy and crazy, but I am so happy and excited that it's worth it.

Posting to pimp myself

Hey all! I am running a 5K in a few weeks, but that isn't even the most exciting part! I am doing the Run for the Cure, which is to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research. I really want to raise more than SB, who is also running, so sponsor me! Just click here:


Then, search for me (if you are a lurker and would like my first and last name, comment me your email address and I will send it to you).

Thanks all!
