One week!!

Well, Nathan and I are getting married one week from today!

Everything is pretty much done...I just need to get my nails done, iron Nathan's suit jacket, and make sure my dress is ready.

I am still hoping for great is supposed to be a high of 47 degrees and sunny, so hopefully that really happens.

I'm going to be a bridesmaid...

My friend, Stephanie, is getting married on Saturday, April 24, 2009 and I am going to be a bridemaid. I haven't bought mine or Nathan's plane ticket, yet, but I did buy my dress and shoes from David's Bridal over the weekend.

Here is the dress that I will be wearing...the same style and color.

And, here are the shoes...she wants us all the wear flats because she is only about 4'11" and she doesn't want her bridesmaids and Maid of Honor towering over her; which I can totally understand. These shoes will also be this color.

I plan on buying the plane tickets sometime in the next couple of weeks. I need to wait until I figure out how long it will take before my name change goes through.
I am hoping that I can save enough money to also go to Disneyland while we are out there, but I will have to wait and see.

After reading my sister’s blog about her Christmas traditions, I wanted to post a blog about mine. There are a few that I’ve had since I was a kid, some that I started a few years back, and some that I plan on starting when Nathan and I move into our own place.

First off, Thanksgiving traditions:

~I have to have my mom’s stuffing!! She will not be here this Thanksgiving, so I have to make it myself. Hopefully, it comes out just as good.

~I also enjoy watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I usually miss the first hour or so because I am sleeping, but I like to sit and watch whatever I can.

~Thanksgiving week, usually a day or two before, I like to make a homemade Pumpkin Pie and French Apple Pie. I like to make other goodies, too.

~BLACK FRIDAY!! I really enjoy going shopping early on Black Friday. My mom and I use to do this every year, but when I moved out and started working at the Disney Store, I had to work that morning, so I’ve missed out on the sales the past few years. However, I plan on going shopping this year, even if I don’t buy anything, I am still going!

Christmas Traditions:

~My mom and I use to decorate for Christmas the day of or after Thanksgiving. We use to go to my great grandma’s house for Thanksgiving lunch and then come home and start decorating; then we would eat some leftovers and go to sleep early, so we could get some rest for Black Friday. I will start decorating for Christmas the weekend of Thanksgiving when Nathan and I move into our own place.

~I have to watch Christmas movies when I wrap presents. I usually start shopping in June or July and I put all the presents away and then start wrapping them in November after I buy new wrapping paper.

~When I was little, I use to watch the cartoon version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” ever Christmas Eve. Now, as long as I watch it sometime around Christmas, I am happy.

~The TV station, T.B.S., always runs “A Christmas Story” for 24 hours starting on Christmas Eve, and I usually watch it sometime Christmas Day.

~One presents gets opened on Christmas Eve.

~Bake cookies on Christmas Eve.

~Buy an ornament that someone reflects the past year.

Traditions I want to start up when Nathan and I move:

~Decorate for Christmas during Thanksgiving weekend, while listening to Christmas music.

~Continue the opening of one present on Christmas Eve. When we have kids, I want their one gift to be new pajamas, so they have cute and new PJs for their Christmas pictures (I am taking that tradition from my sister).

I can’t think of any new traditions that I want to start at the moment, but I am sure that there will be plenty in the future.

4 more weeks!!

Only four more weeks until I get married! I am getting more and more anxious by the day. Granted, I haven't lost nearly as much weight as I wanted, but I am still hopeful that I will look nice in my dress.

Everything is pretty much done. I just need to buy my sister's bouquet and the wine for the toast. Oh, and I need to pick up Nathan's suit jacket next week once it is done, but other than that, I am ready to walk down the aisle. Okay, not quite...I still need to have my mom do something to my dress, get a manicure and pedicure, and find someone to do my make-up, but I will have a few more weeks, plus, most of that stuff has to wait until it gets closer to the date.

Well, it seems like I have been waiting forever for this day, so I am glad that it is only four weeks away! :-)
