Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who made our wedding special and helped us put on a great party!! It was the best day ever and we still can't believe the timing with the rain.

My one regret of the day was that I didn't get to spend much time (or any time) with everyone. My bustle broke at least 5 times and we kept trying to fix it. Had that not happened I may have made the rounds a little more. If I didn't get to say hi to you just know I love you all and so happy that you were there!

Tough Week

Just under 20 days to go and it's been a stressful week. I ended up switching up the bridal party so now John's sister is going to be a bridesmaid. It's unfortunate that my friend Jodi had to drop out but it will be fun to have Crystal on the team. Now Jodi can enjoy herself the day of the wedding and not worry so much about being home right after the ceremony to get back to her little girl. I think it worked out for the best.

My mom's dad has had a lot of health issues this week. His adema came back full force a few weeks back and on Thursday he was given a new medication that had an adverse effect. He ended up in the hospital Thursday night, even quit breathing but is still with us for now. He is a tough ol' guy....survived WWII, Federal Way Fire Chief for many years and now this. He won't be able to come to the wedding anymore but I do hope he makes it a little longer so we can share a video of it ASAP after the ceremony. I will miss him greatly. AND my dad's dad is not doing well either right now. I won't go into details but he may have to have one of his leg amputated due to an infection from diabetes plus he's got a bladder infection and high white blood cell count. Not looking good at all. I guess the bright spot in all of this is my grandmother is doing better since her heart attack in January and will be at the wedding. ;) It's just been a tough year.

We got a lot of stuff done for the wedding this week...met with the DJ, Caterer, Wedding Coordinator, Officiant and soon the Photographer. Little by little things are getting done. It seems we pretty much only have the programs, vows, music and some of the timeline to figure out. There's probably more but those are the big parts of the puzzle. It's getting so close.

Bocas Del Toro

Panama Canal

We are going to Panama for our honeymoon..for two full weeks! I'm excited to finally go to the Carribean and see the Panama Canal.

We won't be leaving til a few weeks after the wedding. We were hoping (and still are) to go to Sasquatch...all three days or even one day of Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately tickets sold out early this year, but I'm still really wanting to make it happen. (Hint hint...if anyone has extra tickets or would like to give us theirs for a wedding present I'd gladly taken them!)

It will be nice to have a few weeks between events for packing and shopping and getting out thank yous, etc. etc. It will be very hard to go to work on Monday morning after the wedding though...

I just ordered wedding sparklers for John's and my big send off as man and wife after the wedding. It will be so fun to run to our limo through a sea of lit wands waved by our friends and family. I hope we get some great pictures from them!

Sandpoint here I come!

I'm heading to Sandpoint, Idaho this weekend to visit Melissa, my Maiden of Honor. I can't even remember the last time I saw her! ... I fly to Spokane Friday night and then we'll drive to Sandpoint and go out for some drinks. Saturday we have a Spa Day! We're getting massages, pedis and facials.

The rest of the weekend is up in the air but I'd like to go shopping for a dress for my bachelorette party in a few weeks and want some spring clothes now that the sun is finally showing itself. I am ready for a relaxing weekend away and when I get back Sunday the rest (almost the end!) of the planning and crafts will begin. 37 days and counting. I'm almost a Thimsen!
