The big day continues to get closer and closer...31 days. My friends, Carolyn Slocum and Robin Harp, and my sister hosted a shower for me last Saturday at Carolyn's new home. It was all very nice. Some local friends and relatives came. We had a lot of fun playing games and there were some emotional moments where they all had nice things to say about Kevin and me. There was a bridal beauty pageant (we're still not sure who won, there may have been a forfeiting technicality). It was all a lot of fun though. Kevin and I received some very nice gifts that we're really excited about. This week I have talked with the place where I am renting some things. They're gonna let me pick their stuff up a day earlier so we can get the church ready on Thursday. I have received the flower girl's basket in the mail. Mom and I picked up more decoration stuff this weekend in Wetumpka at Cafco. I'm still sending out thank you notes. I mailed out invitations to the rehearsal and dinner today. Tonight I'm working on invitations for the bridesmaids' luncheon. I'm really excited about them. I think they are so cute! We're getting response cards in daily. There will be more out of town guests than we originally expected. We're really excited about that. I have to order napkins. Kevin and I have to get plastic-ware for the reception still. We need a really good wassail recipe. We need to work on our list for the DJ at the reception. Add a response for any good songs you and your true love would like to hear at the reception. We want everyone to have a good time. We are both so excited!
