Thailand Trip & Wedding Plans

Hey! Well I made a big post on Facebook of our Thailand trip! The short version- it was wonderful! Brew & I had a blast, it was such an awesome opportunity. I loved every minute of it (other than of course the flights). The long version- can be found here.

So there is 135 days till my wedding!!! Eeek! I'm getting more & more excited! I have an appointment on Saturday at David's Bridal in Charleston to look for a bridal gown! I'm going to order invitations soon, as soon as Brew's mom gets me her family's invites. And I'm in the process of looking for bridesmaid dresses. There's so much to do and I'm kind of scatterbrained when it comes to everything. I have a feeling it's going to go by wayyy too fast!

Good news- we already have a place to live. The house that used to belong to my grandparents (where my dad, aunt, and uncle grew up) is where we will be living! After my grandpa passed away, he left the house to my dad, aunt, and uncle. My uncle has been living there but since he's getting married in March and moving in with his fiance, then that leaves an empty house! It's paid for so we don't have to pay any rent or mortgage. Just utlilties, insurance, and taxes. I'm super excited because it's a 3-bedroom house in a good area, just right outside town (near WVU-P). It's a perfect place to get started.

In the next few days I have a lot to look forward too...
  • Tomorrow we're going to look at the house, decide what work we need/want to do to it, when we can start moving in, etc.
  • Saturday=dress shopping!
  • Sometime this weekend, Brew & I are purchasing our wedding rings!
  • Monday= mine & Brew's Valentine's day dinner! (We don't do a lot for Vday, but we are going out, and I'm looking forward to it)

Life is good :)
