In the mail I've gotten our cake cutter set. I'm thinking about getting it engraved. But what would it say?
I've gotten a couple of surprises that we'll be seen at the reception!!!
I got my wedding day jewelry.
I got a card box and our sand for our Unity Sand Ceremony.
The bridesmaids have gotten their dresses!!! For my girls, I've also taken care of some surprises that they'll be getting on the big day!
I've also engaged all of my aunts in hopes that one of them will have a white clutch for me to use as my "Something Borrowed". I've gotten a couple of options, definitely 80's style, but that's better than spending $50 on something I'll most likely only use once.

Last Monday we met with our Pastor, Pastor Ken who is going to marry us. And this man is truly amazing. I feel so blessed that he is going to marry Chris and I. We met with him to go over the details of our ceremony, and to start our pre-marital counseling. We've been given the task to read two books. "His Needs, Her Needs: Building an Affair-Proof Marriage" by Willard F. Harley, Jr. and "The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts" by Gary Chapman. Right now I'm reading His Needs, Her Needs, and Chris is reading The Five Love Languages. And it's interesting. In that past when I would attend weddings, I would think a lot about the bride and the groom and making such a strong commitment to each other. And the type of conversations they would have to have with one another to put them where they are standing and saying "I do". And these books are perfect things to probe those types of conversations. Before we started reading these books Chris and I have had many conversations about the type of marriage we want to have and lots of other difficult topics, but these books just shed a different type of light on it and bring up different points that are great for us to discuss as we get ready to meet at the alter with our pastor and God.
