i apologize for having so much time between posts! i had kind of forgotten about the blog…
i guess i’ll start from now and work my way backwards. dan is working on a bottling plant in vacaville, ca. the three hour time difference is a lot harder than the single hour that was kansas. dan’s expecting to work a few 12’s this weekend, and one of them starts on independence day at midnight…so he doesn’t think he’ll be able to go to fireworks or anything. i’m chilling by my lonesome for now, since my parents went to st. louis for a wedding and more dental work, my sisters are both camping, and dan’s family is at the toering reunion.
dan came home june 20-28. he drove to denver and flew into ohare, where i met him and then drove him back to grand rapids. he missed his first flight to minneapolis by like 5 minutes, and ended up being an hour late. thankfully we decided to get a hotel for that night, cuz we were both too tired to drive. originally we were supposed to go to the engaged encounter weekend, but it got cancelled as there wasn’t enough interest. we had a busy week regardless. sheena took engagement pictures for us, we met with pastor will, we met with our financial guy, we went to the tux place to get matt, emo, dan and rusty fitted and tried to spend as much time as possible together.
june 12 notions threw me a bridal shower. it was fun. 🙂
may 31 was my first bridal shower, thrown by aunt judi, sue and julie. we had yummy breakfast, i opened presents and then we chatted for a while. got a lot of cool stuff. 😀 then liz, bean, sheena and me went shoe shopping.
so…left to do. working on getting the invitations together so they can get mailed out, hopefully on monday.
vows are written, might need to be revised, but have to be sent to pastor will along with our “life verse”, which we haven’t chosen yet. i still need a unity candle, a garter, and probably some other little things that i can’t think of at the moment. all the big things are under control, now it’s just the little details.
