So I have been engaged for three whole weeks and a tone has happened. We decided (well more like me) to have the wedding right away. I wanted to get married in the summer but didn't want to wait another year so we are getting married on Sunday, September 4. It is a long weekend so it still gives everyone travel time and because it is the Sunday, I have had no problem at all finding vendors.
In twenty one days I have picked a: date, location, caterer, cake baker, invitations, guest list, colors, florist, photographer, wedding bands, master of ceremonies, flower girl dress, and most importantly my dress. I have been busy and under stress but everything is going to be fine. We also established a budget (small one) that I am determined to work within. It is all going to be great. Small, intimate wedding in a courtyard (the Lady Slipper Courtyard, doesn't that sounds beautiful, it is) and a fabulous small party to follow.
On a sad note, I think I have to find a new home for our beloved beagle. She has separation anxiety and it has been getting worse the past few weeks. It breaks my heart to even think of letting her live with someone else but she needs better owners. She is the most loving dog in the world and wouldn't hurt anyone but she needs more attention than we are able to give her. I am working with my trainer to find her a home with owners that are able to give her what she needs.
To help lose a couple of inches before the wedding, I am starting a new weight loss competition. My dress fits perfectly but would look better with toned arms and a flatter stomach. :)
