Life Lately

The wedding is 15 days away and I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!

J and I have been busy with showers and organizing our house lately. We had our last wedding shower in Nashville last weekend and it was wonderful! So many people came to support us. It was overwhelming, but I felt very loved. Needless to say we got a ton of really great stuff and it is stacked all over our house as we try and sort through what we already had to make places for the new stuff. I feel a HUGE yard sale coming on sometime in late September.

Speaking of organizing, J installed these in the garage last night:

Aren't they great? Now I just need a few more boxes and a label maker so I know exactly what is in every box! How fun!

Sister Molls is coming to visit this weekend and we are going to work on putting together programs for the wedding. One more thing that will be out of the way! I feel like everything has just fallen into place as far as the wedding goes. I haven't really felt stressed at all. Anxious, yes. Stressed, not so much. I am sure the week before will be a little crazy, but I am so excited I don't even care!

I read this book over the last two weeks:

It's really cute (and quite predictable) as all of her books are. All are set in the south - mostly in Savannah or Atlanta - and they are fun, perfect for summer reads.

Of course I've still been obsessively watching the Olympics. One, because there is NOTHING else on TV and two, because they are really, really great! I have to say I am a little sick of all the track runners and their showboating. Why must they drape a flag around themselves and take that little victory lap? And isn't it a bit disrespectful to drape the American Flag all over your sweaty body and drag it on the ground around the track? It's annoying and so is Usain Bolt. Yes, he's super fast, but he drives me CRAZY!!

Aren't these bouquets pretty??

These are going to serve as my "inspiration pieces" for my wedding bouquet. Yes, we are making them ourselves and yes, that could contribute to a little bit of stress, but we have practiced and it's really not that hard to do.

And I'm thinking about something like this for the bridesmaids:

Isn't it cool and different? I love them!

Ok, I guess that's enough random rambling for today. Hope you have a great Thursday!

Love the bouquets! (I did mine myself too and only one other person was allowed to touch my calla lilies!!!) Good luck!

unfortunately we will not be able to make the big day but know that we are thinking of you guys and wish you a life and marriage full of happiness, love, and LOTS of beautiful kids!!!

Are you ready for SEC football?

Thanks Valerie! I am hoping the bouquets turn out well. Thanks, too for the well wishes!

I am loving that football season is here. We are actually going to take a break from all the wedding stuff to go to the Vandy/South Carolina game Thursday night. Go 'Dores! :)
