8 months and counting!

Maybe I'm in denial, but I refuse to believe that November is almost over!  I mean really, where did this year go?!?  I am 8 months away from the big day.  Here's what's been going on:

New Shower Location: BOOKED
Originally my shower was going to be outside, but we had to push the date up to the middle of April.  My mom was a little skeptical of how the weather would be so we started looking for other alternatives.  Our new venue is a blank space and we're going to bring everything in {linens, catering, decorations}.  Last Saturday we went to see the space in person and it was perfect.  I love working with a blank canvas so things are okay in this area.  

I went from not being allowed to know anything about my shower, to knowing only the date and place, to being involved in the planning!  I even have my outfit already.  It's not that I don't like prizes and it's not that I'm a micro manager- I just like to be prepared!  Plus with my career, it would have been really hard to pick a date without telling me.  Soooo, I guess my baby shower can be a surprise in a few years!

Wedding Jewelry:  Almost Booked
Just like my wedding dress, I am having my jewelry custom made.  There's actually a part of my dress that has jewelry on it {I know it sounds weird, but once I finally reveal what my dress looks like it will all make sense}.  I'm going to see my dress designer today to be measured for the part where the jewelry will go, and once I have those measurements I can finally place the order for my jewelry so that all my pieces can match.

Bridesmaid Gifts:  Soon! 
I'm waiting to catch the holiday sales for this.  In fact, I was even considering going to the outlets at 12am on black Friday to see what I can find, but I haven't quite made up my mind yet if I'm going to go through with that plan!

And sadly, as happy as I am about the holidays being here, it makes me a little sad that this is my last Thanksgiving and Christmas at home.  Usually I'm the potato peeler or the collard greens washer & cutter, but this year will be different!  I will have my hiney in the kitchen getting down with momma because I need to be prepared to do this on my own next year in my own house!

Don't get me wrong, I know how to cook, and I cook really good when I decide to cook.  But I've never made a Thanksgiving meal, and honestly, it sounds quite intimidating!  I'll take pictures of my Thanksgiving Cooking 101 course and blog about it!

Stay tuned!

eight months is close and believe me this will be such an event- filled year for you. Savor this time because there will never be anything quite like it again.
