Time is flying by! It's like I turned around and the wedding is all of a sudden coming up so fast! I'm excited but getting a little nervous--not to be getting married, just nervous about the planning and that everything for the wedding day will go smoothly! It's so nice that we do not have to worry about things like buying a house or moving on top of planning and our honeymoon. I'm glad that we will really be able to enjoy everything, especially a very well deserved vacation for both of us work-aholics. But seriously--it is almost here! I can't believe that this weekend is almost JUNE.

We have had lots of excitement recently. Jake had a very fun Bachelor party two weekends ago, and I had a wonderful Bachelorette party this past weekend. I also had my Bridal Shower on Sunday, and it was so nice to see friends and family that I haven't seen in months! I am also so excited that some of our friends are moving back into the area so that they will be closer and we will get to see them more :) We have also been very blessed that Jake has gotten TONS of calls for work lately and he is being kept quite busy. It is a little bit stressful for him to be able to find enough workers, and having all of this going on around our wedding/honeymoon, but it's a wonderful problem to have!

The wedding checklist is getting pretty small, and I have my dress back after the alterations finished! It was a bit of a headache--I apparently picked a difficult dress type to alter and it took 2 months--but the final result is perfect and I can't wait for everyone to see it!

Time for bed, and I promise that I will at some point start to be better about updating more!

One Month!!

Exactly one month from today we will be married! Stacey Marie Walden is starting to have a very nice ring to it :) I am so excited because I'm finally getting to see the little details coming together bit by bit. As an update, our cake topper came in the mail and I am completely obsessed with it. Check out Lynn's Little Creations on Etsy to see her stuff--she is fantastic! It was worth every penny of $85.00. This was definitely one of the only splurges that I made but it is the perfect keepsake that we will have for years to come! We have also made some decisions for ceremony and reception decorations. I have a few things to get for that, but at least we have it 90% figured out.

We have also been working on finalizing our Honeymoon :) How beautiful does this look??

We are so excited! Right now we are trying to figure out all of the places we want to go so that we can buy some tickets in advance online, since we can save money that way. I also can't wait for this Saturday because I get to go try on my wedding dress at what is hopefully my final fitting and bring it home!!

Aside from that, we have picked out our wedding rings and are looking forward to our bachelor/bachelorette parties this weekend and next.

That is all for now, I have to get back to planning!
