the train is a comin'

The clock is ticking and the days are shedding away. We're 150 days from THE day. So far there hasn't been much movement on the wedding front. Not at least in the past week since we've been preoccupied playing with Kona, our new poodle princess! I need to get it back in gear cause the Wedding train is a coming and I need to get back on board!

This weekend I'll most likely wrap up our guest list and send it off so that invites can be printed. Once they receive our list we'll have our pretty little invites and all the joys of packing them up and shipping out in about 2-3 weeks. I can't send them til first of March, but I can sure stuff and stamp them before then! Assembly line anyone?!

Our first big planning meeting is on the 14th of this month. We'll be deciding both wedding cake and grooms cake, all flowers and the general design/feel for the day. I'm pretty excited yet almost overwhelmed at the thought of doing this all at once to be honest. I wish I had some images to share, but they are on my other computer. I'll upload them tonight and show what I'm thinking about. Once this meeting is done I'll feel a little more confident about things. I've got my flower ideas and cake ideas set in my head, here's to hoping they fit into budget and will work with the overall theme. In January we head back to Flint Hill to do our catering and beverage stuff and work though the reception stuff. I think this meeting will be slightly easier. Serve good and lots of food and LOTS of booze!!

Up next on the working on things include our Hotel guest bags, Thank You gifts, Seating Chart board (which will be a doozie!) and lots of other small things! I can't believe how fast 2010 has come to a close and 2011 is about to ramp up.

In other news, I started bootcamp again this week. I loved going (minus the cold weather and rain) most of the beginning of this year and thought what a great way to get back into shape so my dress fits just right. Needless to say Tuesdays bootcamp was rainy and Wednesdays was freezing. Two hellacious days to start it off, but it can only get better and I can only get smaller and fitter :)
