    i need to do ceremony programs too. forgot about that.

    we havent paid for our stay pre-wedding or honeymoon yet.

    should get my invitation final proofs back today or monday and will post those asap. got a call from my bank's fraud protection unit (haha) today because of the number of large purchases i put on my debit card this week to pay off wedding stuff. i asked them to please put a note on my account that there will be a number of large purchases between now and august because of our wedding, and that im monitoring my account daily to make sure i know the charges that have gone through and whatever. the lady was like "wow youre really on top of things" and i said "you have no idea, you should see my TO DO list"

      just got a confirmation email today that my invitations shipped! we got our proofs yesterday for our invitations in spanish and sent the corrections back today. i ordered my veil 2 days ago, and paid off my civil ceremony dress yesterday.

      what have all of you been up to? only 4 months left! i can hardly believe it.
