I'm still alive!!

Wow, so I'm sure most of you think that I up and abandoned this pretty little blog! Luckily I did not... and I'm back with lots of stuff to say! Lets start with the fact that I have 67 DAYS until we get hitched!! And is it bad to say we still don't have musicians to play at our ceremony?? Ehh little things, little things...haha!

But we do have one big thing scratched off that To Do List, the invitations!

Here they are all done and ready to be sent to family and friends! We had a nice little assembly line going on. M took the RSVP envelopes, attached the stamp and put the return address label on them. My job was to stuff those pretty little envelopes and write all our loved ones names on them... and then they were handed back to M where he sealed those bad boys. I can't believe he licked 116 envelopes! What a trooper!

I guess because I didn't really do these DIY, I feel they didn't take as much time as I thought they would! I split them up and said we would do 25 per night and they were done in less than a week! Definitely a good idea so you don't overwhelm yourself. I wouldn't have done it any other way... and having M to help was wonderful! Now for the daunting task:

Thank you notes! We had our first shower this weekend and we racked up! I did my best not to stalk my registry but I couldn't help myself! But there were still some surprises in store for us at our beach themed "Poolside Dinner"! We got both of our bathroom sets (YAY!), lots of towels, a set of knives, and one of our GORGEOUS platters! I'm super pumped!! M even got some gift cards to Home Depot. All much needed stuff and I can't help but thank all the ladies who helped put the shower together. I didn't take any pictures of the set up but I do have some pictures of us opening presents and the invitation!

How cute are these? One of the hostesses made this herself! How sweet!

I think maybe you can tell I was excited about our toothbrush holder! Well that's all for today folks! I promise the next post won't take so long to get up!! Thanks for still reading :)
