1 More Month!!! :o)

Only one more month until our big day!!! Time has FLOWN by, as everyone warned me it would. GOOD, because I'm ready to be with my Prince Charming, but BAD because I have SO much to do, SO little time! Before August 15th I have to:

-Get Bridal Portraits Made (Friday!!!)
-Go to Myrtle Beach for my Hair Practice
-Finish centerpieces, candy buffet stuff, bubbles, fans, etc.
-Lose 50 pounds
-Get stuff ready for our cookout
-Pack for Alaska
-Pack for Honeymoon
-Clean out my apartment in Greenville
--God only knows what else I am forgetting :o)

Just wanted to post a quick update with a few pictures of what we have accomplished the past few weeks! Needless to say, I have spent the past week tying about 100 bows, which take me about 10 minutes per bow--I'm not a crafty person!

We bought fans for people to use during the ceremony since it will be at 10 a.m. on the beach and hot, hot, HOT! I have decorated those and our bubbles to the best of my ability, and needless to say, I am very proud of them :o) Here are a few pictures!
Just wanted to post a quick update, have to talk to Jason now--I can't talk to him and update our blog at the same time--I get confused! Ha! Keep me in your thoughts and pray that I don't have a nervous breakdown soon, and that I make it through the next month without killing someone! Thank you!!

XOXO from Hot and almost miserable N.C.--

Jason's Trip Home

Jason finally came home on June 27th, and we had a busy busy week! I picked him up from the airport Saturday morning and we spent the day with his family. Sunday we got up bright and early and headed to Goldsboro. On the way, we picked up my wedding band,
which I LOVE by the way, and had some pictures made in a studio--my aunt bought us a package from a fundraiser that my cousin was doing and we get a FREE 11x14 picture. After that we had our shower, which was a big success--we got lots and lots of stuff! We finally headed down to Myrtle Beach Sunday night and stayed until Tuesday night. We applied for our marriage license and picked it up, and just shopped and layed out on the beach so Jason could work on his tan--Alaska makes you PALE!! :)

We left Myrtle Beach Tuesday evening and headed to my family's beach house in Swansboro, where we stayed until Friday. We spent the day on the beach and at the pool with his family and my sister and the kiddos :) And Jason got fried, AGAIN. Needless to say, I couldn't touch him all week without him complaining :o(

Friday morning we headed to Goldsboro because we were getting our engagement pictures taken that afternoon. We met our photographer downtown at 5:30 and shot until 8! We had lots of fun taking the pictures, and LOVE LOVE LOVE how good they turned out! Could not have asked for better pictures, or for a better photographer, who is also doing my bridal portraits and our wedding :) Definitely recommend him to anyone. His website is: He is very affordable, fun to work with and is willing to do anything to get you the shots that you want :)

Saturday, we went to New Bern for the day to cook out with his family. We had yummy pig and southern cooking--which Jason couldn't get enough of while he was home! We spent the day by the pool and just relaxed which was a nice change from the rest of the week!! We headed back to Goldsboro that night and spent our last few hours together, and got up early this morning to head to the airport :o( Although it's never easy when he leaves me, it was much better this time because we knew that he will be back in a little over a month and this is the last time we will be doing this long distance crap (hopefully!!!). He is officially back in Ketchikan as of about an hour ago--safe, sound and exhausted :o)

Okay, enough blabbing. Why do I always talk so much on this thing?!?! Wedding planning is going good, everything is pretty much finished except for small details--whew! My dress should be in this week sometime, so YAY for that--Bridal portraits on the 18th is what it's looking like--I'll keep updating, and may have to cut Jason off from the blog until after the wedding so I can give a sneak peak of my portraits. We will see!

XOXO from hot and once again lonely N.C.--
