This is the email I just sent my husband:

"Hey babe. You told me to send you an email today reminding you to do something. But I can't remember what you wanted me to remind you to do! Here's hoping you remember what you told me to remind you about because I don't!"

It just made me laugh out loud... doesn't take much I guess :)

The morning of...

I had an idea in my mind of what my wedding day would be like since before I even got engaged. I always knew I would get married in the fall. I knew it would be a gorgeous day! I envisioned the wedding party all getting together before the wedding for some fun portraits outside. Maybe a big field somewhere or a vineyard perhaps. Where ever we went it would be gorgeous out and we would take tons of fun pictures outside without a care in the world. I was nervous of course leading up to the big day. I had worries every now and again that something would be forgotten or something would go wrong but I always just told myself it would all work out perfectly, it had to... it was my wedding day. I did not once envision rain on my wedding day... not once. I also never envisioned the power going out in the church, or my cake collapsing... but those are just a few of the things that helped make our day special. Had someone told me that three months ago I would have told them they were crazy. How could any of that be good??? But somehow for us it all worked out. I'm not gonna lie... I'm still mad it rained on my wedding day... but all things considered I think the day went pretty well.

The day before...

I spent the day before my wedding relaxing with my girls. We went and had our eyebrows done which might sound silly to some of you but obviously you have never been to Daniel. He is like an eyebrow GOD! It was great! Then we went for mani's and pedi's. I was treated like a princess, it was quite nice, I could totally have gotten used to that! :)

Then we were off to the church for the rehearsal which went well. Then off to Michael's parents for the best rehearsal dinner ever... at least that's what I hear. The nervous bride I was, I took maybe two bites off of my moms plate and that was it :)

Once we were done with the rehearsal dinner we should have gone home put on our pj's and just relaxed, went to bed early for ample beauty sleep and called it a night. Well that is what I suggest you do the night before you wedding. DO NOT decide you are going to make all of the bouquets the night before your wedding... that is a bad idea. UNLESS of course you have some of the most awesome bridesmaids in the world there to do it all for you! We got back to Elyse's parents house and spent the better half of the night trying to get my flowers to open up. It was quite the task and at about 3am I finally told them all I was sorry but I had to go to bed if I was going to look at all rested on my wedding day. So they stayed up and made all 7 bouquets! They rocked!!!

HELLO! I realize I have been away from the blog for... a LONG time. I'm going to make more of an effort to get back into blogging. So today I will start getting you caught up on the past couple months. Today I will leave you with some pre wedding goodness :)

These are a few more pictures from my Bridal Shower. I had SO MUCH FUN! It's not often that you are filled with a room full of women that are there to love and support you! It was an amazing day! I had most of my best friends there... even Jenny ready to pop and all. There was AMAZING food! You would have thought we were at a 5 star restaurant. We played all sorts of fun games too. It was just an all around awesome afternoon!

Then from the shower we went to my new house to drop off all of my presents, and let me tell you... there were TONS! We honestly have not unpacked a single thing from our old kitchen, were just using all of our new goodies! Anyways once we were done at my house the girls decided to blind fold me! They secretly drove me out to this cute hotel in RI right by the beach to spend the night. It was a ton of fun!
