and the list goes on.

Since becoming engaged in October, I have diligently been making my list and checking it twice.  I was able to make major headway throughout the first two months, but now I feel as though I've plateaued.  Majorly.  The big ticket items seemed to come together quickly, but these details are the pits!  Every decision seems to come paired with a hefty price tag and our bottom line is continuing to grow exponentially.  Don't worry, I'm still having a lot of fun, I just feel like my to-do list is never going to end!  But the crazy thing's going to end in less than 4 months.  Yikes;)

I'll leave you lovelies with some images that make me feel girly, giddy & super pumped to be getting hitched!

  1. I wish Pinterest and blogs had been around when I got married. So much inspiration out there now.

    I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award and am now nominating you. Details are on this post...
