We moved Carrie out today. The room looks so sad. I'm all alone in this big house. I've had two other roommates move out, but who cares I was angry and glad to see them gone for the time being (good friends, bad roommates.) But Carrie and I were great friends. Yah we had our moments where we wanted to kill each other and our pet peeves about the other, but all in all, she was the best roommate I could have asked for... and now she has to move out and I have to live with a boy. :(

I am really happy about the whole getting married thing, but on a different level I am really sad that Carrie and I won't be roommates anymore. :( We had our final celebration last night with our standard bottle of Champagne. It was great fun. I can remember back to all of those times and be super happy. AHH. Ok, enough memory lane. Carrie might be moved out, but she's just up the freeway. I refuse to turn into one of those new-married people that cut off all contact from the rest of the world and gosh darn it, we will hang out together. That goes for you too Shannon. Speaking of heard anything about the job?

Well, Carrie might be gone out of this apartment, but it is now time to head over to her's to help her make it a nice place to call home.

Back for wedding progress later....

Less than a week! Crrraazzy! Things are coming together though. A lot of the list has been chipped away.

1. Program - 90% finished
2. Finish the slideshow.
3. Make the play list of music for the wedding reception. 1/2 DONE
4. Print, Address, seal, stamp all announcement/invites to August Party. 1/2 DONE
4a. *find all address for those that I must send invites to.
5. Still working on the money tree thing.
6. Make sure that all bills are paid before leaving for honeymoon *SHANNON still will need the help.* 1/2 DONE
7. Pack for the honeymoon.
8. Still searching for a walk out song.

Really it's just down to the little stuff. Loving Fiance is working on the remaining pictures that we need for the slideshow. Then that will be done. He is also getting more music and then the reception music will be done. He thinks he might have found the song to play during the ceremony.

More to come later :)

1-0

The final day of the double digits and I have been rather productive.

I have ordered the cake and HA-ZAH talked to Madame Patrick! Yes that's right F-I-N-A-L-L-Y. GEEZ.... the good news is, by my calculations... catering will only be right at $1,000. Unless he finds some secret way to calculate.

More to come later.... but I was just so excited that I had to share!

12 days!

I have moved out of the teens and into the ... not teens. Today I made "to-do" lists for all of the peeps that I will have near to me. If you are staying in this house the night before the wedding, you will have jobs the next morning. Fairly warned I do say (even if Shannon is the only one of those peeps that reads this fine journal of mine.)

**** SIDE NOTE *****
My roommate just walked in and she is the color of Target! Yes, bright red! She was at a wedding, well in a wedding today, one held at the beach (awww...) and she didn't wear sun screen. I'm not exagerating. She is the color of Target! Oow it hurts to just look at her. (She does look super cute in the dress she has on)
**** END SIDE *****

Yah, so 12 days. Shannon says she'll do whatever I need, thanks man! Becky, same thing. I am actually much calmer than expected. Besides still needing to meet with Madam Patrick and give him loads of crap and establish that we are on the same page for how I want the room to look, everything is put together. Mark has some rough numbers that will be solidified later this week (he's so nice, he said that he could wait as long as next Wednesday before putting the order in) I'll give it to him before that, or I'll forget.

Photographer is confirmed, Food for wedding is confirmed (damn that patrick, freakin' call me!), flowers are bought and paid for (as soon as I take the check over there), all the supplies for the decorations of the church are bought and in one location in our living room, almost everything for the reception is in a bag and ready to go to Patrick (if he ever FREAKIN calls), presents for everyone are established and finalized purchasing will commence this week.

Those are the big things currently. To update my list from the last entry....
1. MEET WITH THE MADAME PATRICK! - STILL NEED TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2. Meet with the Pastor. - Meeting with him on Wednesday night.
3. After meeting with the Pastor create the program for the wedding. - Will do after Wednesday night.

7. Finish purchasing gifts. - 90% done!
8. Wrap gifts.- Still need to do.
9. Invent money trees to pay for all this nonsense. - lol riiiight.
10. Make sure that all bills are paid before leaving for honeymoon *SHANNON you must help remember this. This is one of the jobs I am giving you as a BM*
11. Find someone to do all of our hair.- Working on, but mostly done... will cost $40 Shan.
12. Pack for the honeymoon.
13. Find a song to walk out to.
14. Get my runaway dress altered.

Wow that didn't make me feel much better. I still haven't done most of this crap! what did I do all week!? Geez.

23 Days!

I am getting married in twenty-three days. That's almost only three weeks! Oh my word. Crrrrazy. What is exciting about all of this *besides the whole getting married part* is that Shannon and Becky will be in town!!!!! YES! This summer has been crazy, yes, but super boring without my friends around. I have Carrie, but alas she has to work and participate in life herself. That's why I need Shannon to come back and STAY in So Cal! New Mexico... not nearly as fabulous as So Cal with Me in it. ;) Come on you know it's true.
Yah, so 23 days.... 23 days and 8 hours right now. It's a little strange to think about it, but a little nerve racking as well. Nerve racking because I still have stuff to order and have delieved to the house and to have things ordered and delievered takes time, time of which I am running out.
Becky asked me the other day if I was in panic mode yet. I told her then that I was still fine, but I think the panic mode is en route here and will be arriving in the next couple of days. I think that both Shannon and Becky should come for 2 weeks and take care of that panic mode, but I am sure that they both would if they could but they can't. Dern those jobs and the military.
Besides the wedding bliss/stress, I still have to work and with work comes the mundane annoyance of attempting to find that perfect case that fits our argument (THAT DOESN'T EXISIT) I am doing research for both attorneys and they want me to find this golden case that will fit perfectly into this little jagged space they have carved out for their argument. When I go back after 6 hours of research to tell them that it doesn't exist, this is what I have found... They send me back into the desert to find the water. BASTARDS, get a clue! Yah so that is what I am "doing" now. I am at home using the internet to search all of Lexis to attempt to find something I can pass off as acceptable for their retarded criteria. HA! Fat chance. *but it means that I am postpone a shower for an additional 2 hours and laze around the house and not answer phones at work so I'll take it.
Hmm updates in the other parts of my world? Not really, my life has been consumed with work and wedding. Which isn't the worst consumable place to be. I'll deal with it and enjoy some of it as well.
Seriously though, if I could alter time I would speed it up to get Shannon and Becky here! Hurry here man! And SLLLLOOOOW time down considerably to get everything planned and ready to go for this fantabulous day that is approaching almost too rapidly.
See you soon! Back to the search for the non-existant cases.
