This week we hit the half way point, and I had my (one and only) bridal shower. Overall the week went pretty good, the days are ticking by fast though. Here's a look at week eight!
Day 51: Brine and prep. If you know anything about me, you know I love to cook (especially things that take a long time) So it's a no-brainer that I'm making pulled pork for my bridal shower. It's a 3-4 day process, which starts out with a brine of pickle juice, spices and some other things.
Day 50: Product pictures and the half way point. We're at the half way point! I really can't believe we're already 50 days to go, days are going by too fast. I spent the day cleaning (which is the theme of this week, for my bridal shower and the wedding itself) and taking product pictures for Pen + Pillar. Of course the cats always love to photobomb when I'm trying to take product pictures in the dining room, it's like they think they run the house.
Day 49: Cleaning and prepping. I don't like saying I'm a perfectionist, because I'm really not, I just want things to be as perfect as they can be. And let's face it, neither me or Jesse ended up doing all the cleaning and organizing we said we were going to do over the winter. So my days off of work lately have been filled with lots of cleaning and prepping for the wedding.
Day 48: Spending time with family. My cousin Missy and her daughter Grace came up from Tennessee to see my Grandma and spend some time with family and friends around the area. It was really nice seeing Missy, since the last time I saw her was in 2011 when my Grandma was in the ICU. We ended up going to the craft show in Muskegon, and saw some pretty cool stuff.
Day 47: Bridal Shower. I've photographed a few bridal showers and baby showers, but having my own was pretty weird. I've never really understood the concept of them except to eat and have another opportunity to give the bride gifts. I am super thankful for Crystal throwing me a pretty amazing shower, but I'm glad I'm only having one!
Day 46: RELAX. After the last week, it was nice to just sit and relax with Jesse. Things are slowly starting to fall into place and I really can't wait to see what the rest of the month brings.
Day 45: Proposals and a late night. I don't even know where to start with this one, other than it turned out better that I thought it was going to. Sometimes things happen that are out of your control (which lead to a mini panic attack) but things work themselves out and magic happens. I just want to thank Jesse for being there for me and helping me through panicking and being an amazing assistant.
Week eight has come and gone, there is going to be a lot more wedding things getting done in the near future!
