Six Months and Counting

Less than six months untill the wedding! Can you feel the excitement? I sure can. I feel like there is so much still to be done. I was stressing out about it a bit, actually, when Bear put things into perspective. "Honey, we have the rings, the dress, and a place to do it. What more do we need? Even if the worst happens, we still have everything we need for the ceremony." While I'm hoping the worst doesn't happen, I have to admit he's right.

Things still to do:
  • Book rental vendor (this is TOP PRIORITY)
  • Contract officiant
  • Call/Meet with Photographer
  • Buy wedding attendant clothes/gifts
  • Clean up wedding/reception area
  • Pick and contract florist
  • Buy vases for centerpieces
  • Steal butcher paper from school for "tablecloths"
  • Burn music CDs
  • Make and send invitations
  • Get engagement photo, notify papers
That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure there's more, even though that list is plenty long. Bear and I have been discussing getting our pictures done. We are destitute, but want nice pictures. I think it is going to have to wait until February. We could do it at WalMart for cheap, but you get Wal Mart quality pictures. I know I won't be happy. I hate cliché poses and that horrible lighting. I want something more us. I have this idea for one picture of us where we are both in our favorite football jerseys - him in a #54 Teddy Bruschi jersey, me in my #54 Brian Urlacher jersey. I think it would be cute! We could look all antagonistic towards each other and stuff. What do you think? Any recommendation for a good photo place? Sears is the only other place that comes to mind, or Northwood Studio in Milo (a private place I know nothing about). Help!

Ok, first of all, your wedding list is slimming down quite a bit. I think you are on a good schedule. Print out that list and cross things off one at a time.
Second, what did I say that made you think there was more to the ingrown hair story than I said, which by the way, your question of where is one I refuse to answer, but I am guessing you have an idea of what area it is close to. I repeat, CLOSE to, not on.
And three, I love your idea for your pictures! Do you guys have a place called The Picture People? They do prefessional photos and you get them back in an hour. Look them up, see if there's one by you. Keep up the good work, it is so worth it!
