For those of you who may have lost count, let me remind you that Charles and I are getting married in 15 days!!! That's like 2 weeks! Holy cow. I'm so excited. Sometimes it doesn't even seem real, and sometimes it just hits me. Wow. I'm going to be married. I have to live with a boy. I can't wait!!!

Adding to the excitement, I went to the orthodontist yesterday and found out that I get to get my braces off the Tuesday before the wedding!! How fantastic is that? No brace-face wedding pictures! Hooray for Dr. Taylor.

Yesterday I hung out with Sarah for most of the day. I love that girl. And she is such a cute pregnant person! I can't wait to meet that little guy! She helped me hang a bunch of stuff on the walls of the apartment and helped me move over my desk. Our apartment is coming along pretty well, and I have to say it's quite cute. The living room and kitchen are pretty much done, but we won't be able to finish up the bedroom until I move over my furniture. When everything finally comes together I'll post pictures. Promise.

Tonight is my bachelorette/lingerie party. I'm excited but slightly freaked out. The thought of other people giving me scandalous undergarments is a little out of my comfort zone. Give me pajama pants and a tank top and I'm a happy girl. Oh well. I will survive.

Hi friends! I'm back. I did not drop off the face of the earth for a month and a half. I have been very busy. Very. This past weekend we had 2 wedding showers! So much fun! Some of Charles' family hosted a shower for us on Saturday night that was so much fun. The theme was "Around the Clock." On each invitation, there was a particular time of day, and the guests brought gifts appropriate for that time. It was a really cute idea. They had the whole place decorated with times and signs that said things like "Snack time," "Drink time," even "Potty time." And there was a giant cake shaped like a clock that had the time and date of our wedding. So cute! On Sunday we had our shower at Pleasant Ridge. It was a lot of fun too. I have been to so many showers at church throughout the years, and it was kind of weird being on the other end of things! Between the 2 showers, we got more stuff than we will ever know what to do with. It's pretty amazing that God has blessed us with so many people in our lives who love us so much. The current project at hand is now trying to go through everything and find homes for it all, and figure out what needs to be taken back. As always, there were several duplicate gifts. I'm pretty sure we're never going to need 3 tea kettles or 4 decks of Phase 10 cards! It's all very fun and exciting. I'm definitely getting very antsy for the wedding to get here. 31 days to go. Charles and I realized on the way back from Arlington this weekend that the next time we go back will be for the wedding. That's a pretty crazy realization. But it makes me very happy too! I can't wait!!
