As of last night, the fiance and I officially have our wedding bands. Actually, we bought his a week ago and had it sent out to be sized. When we went to pick it up last night, we learned he must have been a little puffy when he was sized, cause the ring didn’t fit at all! So, we purchased my ring and sent it and his in again to be sized. Yay! Most big items have been taken care of, and we could still get married if I didn’t finish anything else on my to do list, so that’s a good feeling. (Of course, I’ll be getting everything done, regardless if it’s necessary or not!)

Yes, it’s finally happened! The braces are off! See the horrible picture below of me at work via cell phone camera. Yes, I know there’s a lack of makeup and also some frizziness of the hair, but deal with it.
The weekend went well. Camping was fun – and this weekend, I’ll be going to Chicago for a shower being thrown by my aunts! That will be fun. Two plane trips in the same month!
Yes, starting this weekend, I’ll have plans EVERY weekend all the way until the 21st of July, when I STILL have plans but will at least be in town! This weekend, the fianceand I are going to my annual family campout. Lots of beer will be consumed, bad jokes will be told, money will be lost, and games will be played. It will be fun, for sure. We’re packing up tonight and heading out around 2 tomorrow. Then, next weekend I’ll be in Chicago for more time with my family, and a lovely shower they’re throwing. Weekend after that is a wedding in Bayfield, then is my bachelorette party fun! Then it’s already the middle of July. Frightening. Lots of work to do.
3 more days and the braces are no more.
…and what better to do than continue wedding planning in 90 degree heat!
(Meanwhile, I’m PRAYING this is Mother Nature getting the heat out of her system for August, so it’s 75 and sunny on the big day. Please?)
So, this weekend is another big planning weekend. Well, I guess I should say Saturday is. At 10am I’ll be having my second fitting with Louise, then the fiance and I will be picking out tie colors for the dudes in the bridal party, and then picking out (and I’m hoping buying!) our wedding bands. I think this is what I’ve been looking forward to the most!
To wrap up the past week or so, the fiance and I applied for our marriage license (and got it! Yay! Good thing we’re not first cousins or felons!), went to Seattle (where it rained and was cold most of the time, boo. I heart Minneapolis!), he started a new job, and we put in the air conditioner in the apartment. We also celebrated the year that’s passed since the fiance proposed, and as of Monday – we’re a mere 2 months from the big day.
My friend emailed me (who’s four months from her big day) totally stressed, hoping I’d be 10x more stressed than her…and surprisingly, I’m not. I’m quite calm. I’m sure that’s about to end though.
12 more days till the braces come off.
