This weekend was actually a pretty relaxed one. Friday I officially got all of our invitations in the mail. That was exciting. Now we just wait for the responses to start coming in. I also picked up a few of the bridesmaids dresses. It was really cool to see them in the correct color this time, because the girls first went to try on dresses they didn’t have the right color in the store. I absolutely love them and I can’t wait to see them on the girls!
Saturday wasn’t supposed to be very busy but it turned into a busy day. The fiance and I have semi-opposite work schedules. Well not really opposite, but we just don’t get to see each other very often during the week. He works from 10am-10pm and I work a regular desk job. So in the mornings we see each other for about 15 minutes while we are running around getting ready and half asleep. Then by the time he gets home from work I am exhausted and already half asleep in bed. The weekends are really our only time together. And that’s just not enough for us. So we are starting this new thing where we get up early and spend some time together in the mornings, whether it be taking the dog for a walk or having breakfast. Saturday morning we got up early and took the dog for a walk AND had breakfast together. It was quite nice. This morning we actually got up early and went to the gym together.
After our morning walk I went to look at flowers with a friend of mine who is doing the bouquets for our wedding. She wanted to get a feel for what style and colors I like. Once we had some things picked out I had to rush over to my future MIL’s school for a fundraiser she put on. Every year around this time she usually has her students sell cookies to raise money for all their choir activities. This year she decided to have a friend come and put on an hour-long Zumba class. It was a lot of fun, and such a good turn out of people. We had worked up quite an appetite from dancing so we all decided to go out to lunch.
After lunch the fiance and I ran a couple errands, one of which included picking up my rings! We ordered my wedding band last week but then I decided to have it, along with my engagement ring, resized to fit me better. I’m not allowed to wear, or even see, the wedding band until the wedding day. My fiance actually hid the box so I won’t be tempted. Once we finished our errands we had to get home because my friend was coming over to hang out for the night. She was coming from a Thanksgiving dinner with her Dad so she brought us a ton of leftovers. It was all so yummy! We spent the rest of the evening watching Christmas movies, making cookies and drinking hot chocolate.
My friend ended up spending the night so Sunday morning we went out for brunch. After we ate we stopped by the mall so she could try to find some shoes for the wedding. By then we were all kind of tired and it was starting to rain, so we went home, turned on a movie and we all took a nap. After our nap my friend went home and the rest of the day was the perfect lazy Sunday. I stayed in my sweats all day and watched movies.
