Although things are a bit crazy around here, I still took the time to get some food ready this weekend so that I could make sure to eat yummy, tasty, and healthy meals to keep my energy and health up this week.
I chopped up tons of veggies for lunches and snacks and I also made some black bean burgers. All that I had to do was cook up the burgers, roast up some sweet potato and Voila!! a delicious and healthy meal was ready to go.
Now, let’s talk wedding…
These past couple of weeks have been flying by as my head is wrapped up with wedding details such as getting items printed, stuffing welcome bags, planning out the seating chart, and making sure the timeline is perfect that I have had to take a step back and think about what this upcoming weekend is REALLY about…
Brian and I have had a couple of mini pep-talks with each other about how we will act on the actual wedding day. There are so many last minute details going into this event, that we don’t want to lose sight of what is truly important to us.
These little pep-talks as well as the Tobit retreat have helped me to put things into perspective. Brian and I have agreed that no matter what happens on our wedding day it will be perfect because of the reason we are celebrating the day in the first place.
Because I love making lists and I try my best to plan for everything in advance, I thought it would be a good idea to share the things that I am most looking forward to and the moments that I want to remember on my wedding day.
Mom, Brenna, and I will be spending the pre-wedding night together and I couldn’t be more excited. It will be just mom and the girls for one last night before I get married. My mom sister and I are all close, but we don’t get to spend as much time together as we would like. This will be the perfect way to start this special day.
I feel that this special time in the morning when it is “just the girls” will really set the tone for the day. Each of my bridesmaids has made an impact on my life and is truly special to me. I can’t wait to share this day with them!
We are all so excited about the wedding, including my dad. He hasn’t been as vocal about his excitement as me simply because of his personality, but he has helped find specific wedding details and complete special wedding tasks that truly mean a lot to me. I need to remember to slow down and cherish this walk.
Brian and I will be taking pictures before the wedding ceremony, so it won’t be a surprise when I walk down the aisle BUT we are staging a first look…I couldn’t be more excited to see Brian on our wedding day!
I have recently entered the Catholic faith, and I am learning and growing in my religion every single day. I am truly looking forward to this special ceremony that will link Brian and I together as one.
My sister and brother have great personalities and are not afraid to get in front of a crowd. I know that whatever they say will be heartfelt, but I am waiting to see if they throw any humor into the mix!
Not sure if I will be able to hold the tears back for this one!!!
I can’t wait to see all of our friends from various points in our life. There are several people visiting from out of town for our special day and I can’t wait to celebrate with them all!
My grandparents are often traveling, my aunt lives in Alaska, and the rest of my family is scattered throughout the US. I can’t wait to see them all soon!
That is quite the lengthy list and there are so many more things that I could add to it. Feel free to chime in and add some advice:
