I know you have all been dying to see the programs that I talk about so much. We are currently in the process of printing and cutting them, and they will be all done and assembled tomorrow! Here is what they will look like!

Also - get Crystal Mumby to design your programs for you.

On this program the paper colors are blue and green, but on 1/2 of them it will be orange and pink.

Awesome, right?!

Please let me tell you all of the reasons that I am so excited to be a wife.

1. I am beyond excited to not have to tell Garrett goodnight and then have him leave to go home. I hate that part of being engaged.

2. I can't wait to make weekly menus, and grocery lists, and try out all the awesome kitchen stuff we got at our shower. I am so excited to have dinner on the table when he gets home from work.

3. I am excited to be a housewife. I love cooking. I like cleaning (I know - shocker to those of you who have lived with me). I don't mind doing laundry. I probably belong in the 1940's. I'm excited to split up chores and I hope he doesn't mind doing the things I hate and the other way around. P.S. I hate vacuuming.

4. I am excited to learn new things about each other. Sometimes I feel like I go long periods of time without learning anything new about Garrett. But I know that there are so many things that I don't know! I can't wait to find out what they are.

5. I am even excited to do homework with him. I love spending time with Garrett, but we have never ever done homework together. This could be really interesting since next semester he is taking 18 hours and I am taking 20.

Mostly, I'm just excited to experience everything with my best friend. One month and one day til I'm Mrs. Keck. :)

34 Days!

I seem to have taken a long break from doing anything related to the wedding. The next 34 days are going to be hectic!
Today we are hopefully:
1. Selling my car
2. Getting an apartment at The Links.

I keep thinking that there really isn't a whole lot left to do, but I keep thinking of things randomly - usually at like 3 in the morning.

We still have to:
-order flowers! I went and looked at flowers in May, and she told me to come back the middle of July to order them! Time went by really fast.
-make programs! I've really just been procrastinating on this because every time I go into Microsoft Publisher to format them I end up wanting to throw my computer up against a wall 10 minutes later. But this weekend I have asked my awesome finacee to help me, even though he can do in 10 minutes what I can do in 2 hours - and that frustrates me. :P
-I really want to have a kid's table. But I don't know how many young kids are going to be there. I know there will be a lot of college-age people, but I know there will be a lot of people from Edmond CoC too, and I'm assuming they will bring their families. So, I want to have some games for them, but I don't really want to spend any more money on something that I'm not sure will get that much use.
So, I thought about printing out some coloring pages and getting crayons from Dollar Tree or something. I also thought about making an "I SPY" page with things like "shiny jewelry," "someone giving a kiss," stuff like that. I know ... CHEESY ... but cute too, right? I also know there is a website somewhere were you can make your own crossword puzzle, so I could make that wedding related too.
-I still need to talk to Karen Driskill about my cake. I've sent her 2 that I like, but I haven't picked one yet. Here is the one we will probably end up with ...

The other one that I'm thinking about has white fondant around the entire thing, and has these cute blue flowers with green stems going up the side of the cake. The only thing is that I'm worried that fondant won't taste as good as frosting. Anyways, that is my cake dilemma.
-We also have to pick up all our stage decorations from Karen's house!
-We still need candles!
-We still have to go shopping for food. That we won't do until like 2 days before. I wish food didn't go bad. I really DON'T want to make a Sam's run two days before the wedding. :P

45 days!

Sorry I haven't written anything in a long time! I know everyone out there is DYING to hear the latest news about the wedding. (ha. ha.)

Well. There really isn't any new news. I'm ready to get married! There's nothing left to do, except make programs - which to tell you the truth are going to take FOREVER.

We are done buying everything for the wedding except for some candles. We still need to pay the cake lady, the flower shop, and give Annetta money for food ... but that is all stuff that we aren't really dealing with so much - just giving people money.
Once August rolls around we will be busy picking up things that we are borrowing from people and stuff like that ... but for now, July is going by EXTREMELY SLOWLY!

Iron and Wine

I found a way to fit an Iron and Wine song into the wedding.
Er. Correction. Crystal Freaking Mumby did.
The bridal party will be walking down the aisle to Such Great Heights.

Now - to fit Five Iron Frenzy in ...
