4 days to go!!!

Well I thought it would be a good time to update since I haven't for a while! We have been SUPER busy getting the house ready (and wedding stuff ready!) Looks like we'll just barely make it...annnd the majority of the "moving" part will have to take place after the honeymoon!

We got our bed last weekend and I of course made it already!!! Here it is...

I'm just super excited to be moving into OUR house! :)

Also, this evening we went to the drive-in w/Stefani & Bas (it's soooo going to suck when they have to go back to Germany after the wedding! I've loved being able to hang out w/them since they've been here!) But anyway it was fun :) Annnnd some more exciting news--- Brew & I get to be godparents to their little munchkin on the way! ♥ We are super pumped :)

Here's the schedule I have for the rest of this crazy/insane week!

Tomorrow (Tuesday) - Drop flowers & cake topper off to Little Stirr, stop in J&Js to check on the status of the tuxes, going to house to scrub/spray paint the cabinet hardware & straighten up the mess (and wait for the guy to get there to turn on the gas), bridesmaid dinner @ 6, then later in the evening working on cabinets & such w/Brew...HOPEFULLY putting them back together!

Wednesday- Meeting my grandpa in the morning to get & install new countertop laminate, finish up any painting/odds and ends at the house. Possibly moving some stuff in the evening?

Thursday- Cleaning out my room at my parents' as much as possible, taking a few carloads of things over to our new house, clean up the new house, make a packing list for our honeymoon, etc. Going over to the church at 12:30 to help mom w/setting up the reception & working on favors, clogging practice/hanging out w/Stef in the evening.

Friday- Getting my nails done, and doing everything I didn't get done earlier in the week, packing for the honeymoon, rehearsal at 5:30 & rehearsal dinner afterwards!

Saturday- THE BIG DAY!!! :-D

Here's to hoping I can get everything done! I'm willing to bet the next post I make will be as a married woman! ♥ So happy to be marrying my best friend! Until then!

Just a quick one...

Ok so it's incredibly late (or early I guess... haha) and I'm utterly exhausted. Brew & I spent the WHOLE day working on the house. We moved the living room furniture that was my uncles to my parents (my brother is taking it for his "man cave" & will move it when they close on their house). Then we moved furniture that we are inheriting from Brew's aunt's house to our house. We also ripped up ALL the carpet in the living room & hallway. It's amazing how much better it looks (and smells) in there!!! Here's a couple pics:

I kid you not we were at it today from 7:30/8 till almost 11pm. I'm happy w/what we got accomplished!

The list of what remains to do before we can move in our stuff...
1- pull up carpet in bathroom & install laminate tiles
2- have my dad install the new range hood in kitchen
3- sand & paint kitchen cabinets
4- install new countertop laminate.

There are several other "projects" remaining but we will take care of those AFTER we move in.

Also-- I didn't post on here yet that Brew got a NEW JOB!!!! *Finally* It's a service rep for a medical supply company called Lincare. Better hours, pay, benefits, etc. It's really what we've been praying for. Not to mention he just put in another application with the railroad for a track worker job in Ravenswood. Which that's even BETTER if he happens to get something like that. So things are really coming together. "The Shepherd will supply my need..."

K I can barely keep my eyes open. Goodnight one & all!
