I'm still around blog world....

We are in the home stretch for this life changing event called a wedding, in fact we raised our right hands and took an oath the other day and purchased our marriage license!!!

Wedding planning gets totally nutty when you are down to the nitty gritty, but it is a really fun time! I promise to write more sometime soon, but at this moment, between being hit with a rough round of the flu last week and constantly being tired from getting up for work at 3 AM EVERY DAY, dear readers, I must sign off and TAKE A NAP!!!

In just about 15 days, I'll move from the W's to the J's in the ol' alphabet and I gotta say, I can't wait for this whole new adventure to begin. JJ and I took a quick trip to lovely Charleston, SC for his cousin's wedding, so I leave you with a pic of me and my love!

Bridal Shower Weekend

I enjoyed a big celebration this past weekend for my bridal shower. Many family members and friends were able to make it to my Aunt's house for a lovely afternoon.

Things kicked off with mimosas and mingling, then a fabulous spread of food - everything from chicken salad crossiants, pasta salad, stuffed mushrooms, veggies and homemade mints. The weather was gorgeous, a sunny day but not too hot. The company was wonderful - grandma, mom, aunts and cousins, friends from various times throughout my life, & several soon-to-be in laws.

I couldn't ask for a better group of women in my life. It was quite a special day for me, several times I would glance at different groups of guests and feel so blessed to know each of them & have them in my life. I can't wait to share the big day with everyone.

Enjoy a few pictures from the day:
Me and Mom...

Our beach themed cake - Yumm....

If you, dear blog readers, happen to have a few pics from the afternoon, please send them my way ~ Thanks!
