165 days...

So it has been a while. Both Todd and I have been working a lot. Now a days we have to with the economy the way it is. We have bills to pay and a wedding to save for. We still have to buy wedding bands, a new suit for Todd, and have spending money for the honeymoon. I am sure I am forgetting other things also. We received another engagement gift yesterday.. I got my first china place setting! Todd isn't so thrilled, he thinks he really don't need it. I want to have nice dishes for special occasions and holidays. We are keeping it =)! I can't believe that we have 5 and a half months left! Time is going by so quickly! We made our song choices for the ceremony and what we want for breakfast the morning after and that is about it. I still have to make my floral choices -I think I might just go for red roses - it should go well with the bridesmaids' black dresses and hopefully Todd's suit (he want to get a black one). I have decided not to have a floral bouquet. I found a special bouquet made of other things that will last forever and I love it! Kemm has offered to throw me a bridal shower and I believe that Jess and Shanna are throwing me my bachelorette party! So I am very excited about those events. I think it will really start to hit me is after the new year when the showers begin!

Ok, so I've been reading through your blog and I wanna know where were nice, sweet people like ya'll when we lived in Memphis. We were there a whole year and really never met ANYONE! My husband knew one couple from college that we adored but they moved away...

Anyway, just wanted to say hello!
