This week is all about lists. Between making lists, checking lists and checking off lists, it's a nose to the grindstone week. I can't complain too much, overall it's been an amazing week and I love spending it with the people I love and care about. Here's to week nine!
Day 44: Odds and ends. It's so exciting to be finally taking care of some of final details for the wedding. Today I ordered hangers for the girls and me and also took care of our wedding favor donations. The numbers are dropping quickly, and there is so much detail to be done yet. But everything is really coming together.
Day 43: Guest list, last call. We spent some time looking over who we haven't heard from yet from the guest list and sent out some messages asking if they were still coming. The deadline till the RSVP's are due is getting crazy close but we do have the majority of them in!
Day 42: Check photographer off the list. CAN I GET A HECK YEAH! Such a huge weight off my shoulders is paying for our photographers. I am so excited to have The Portos photograph our wedding, I am seriously over the moon about it. They are amazing people and some of the best photographers in my opinion.
Day 41: Sunburns, work and getting Alexis for the weekend. So while I was at work, Jesse and his family went kayaking together for the first time, and of course he got pretty sun burnt. (Yes, I told him he can't do that any closer to the wedding, no red lobster groom for me) We also picked up my niece Alexis for the rest of the weekend.
Day 40: Traveling around West Michigan with Alexis. I like to think I'm a cool aunt (I really don't know, but I like to think it) so anytime we can spend time with Alexis, Jesse and I try to make it fun. We ended up starting the day with donuts (because why not) and a trip up to Cherry Point Market (where we were going to have lunch, but we ate donuts instead) We then went to Little Sable Point Lighthouse (which exactly a year ago today Jesse and I went to when we spent a weekend away after a family session at Cherry Point, crazy right!!?!) and up to Ludington to this little greenhouse place downtown that sells fairy garden stuff. She ended up picking a little turtle on a rock which was super cute.
Day 39: Flower surprise. Jesse surprised me with a few flowers for the front from Countryside on his way home from the fish store. (apparently it matters what fish store you get your salt water from, I have no idea about any of this) but of course I had to plant them! (which I don't mind at all) I definitely want to get a few more to add in before the wedding.
Day 38: Playlist and final lists. As the days are winding down, I know I need to get my lists in order and one of those is the playlist. Jesse and I have pretty different likes in music (I mean if it was up to him it would be all country music, and that's just not me) but I know weddings and what gets people dancing so we'll be alright.
Things are really coming together (which makes me feel so much better about everything) Next week we hit the one month to go mark, I think we'll be alright.
