Wedding week is here!

I hope everyone had a great Monday! Mine has definitely been busy!! This morning Matt & I both moved out of our respective apartments in College Station... guess that makes graduation and moving on all the more final. My parents were able to come and help me move my stuff which was good.

Side note: When you move, do you realize you have WAY too much stuff??? You try to give stuff away, etc, but you can justify owning just about everything. Someone please explain this weird materialism to me, please....

But I digress... after giving my key up, eating lunch, and driving home, it was time to start organizing boxes. I have a spare room here at the house that is becoming a storage room for all my boxes and other things to move. It's crazy how much stuff there is. But after organizing boxes and the wedding gifts we've gotten thus far, we went shopping! My mom and I both got rehearsal dinner dresses (about time, huh?) and I got another cute dress I can't wait to find an excuse to wear. 

Plans for this week?? Finish up last minute wedding things, like printing programs and getting rehearsal, wedding day, honeymoon stuff centralized. Oh, and pack.

Hint for future brides: do NOT move home the week of the wedding, and then be moving immediately after the honeymoon. Please. Save yourself some stress (though my mom says stress burns calories!) and lack of sleep. Oh, and bruises. The bruises I have on my legs from today are going to be amazing, let me tell you. 

Anyway, this week will be busy but I'll be on here once or twice more to update y'all before the wedding festivities really get started. I have a few posts already written that will be posted next week so be looking for those! 


  1. Oh gosh, moving the week of the wedding definitely would've done me in! Good luck and an early congratulations to you!

  2. yikes! we're actually moving the week before our wedding into our new apartment so we wont have to do it when we come back from our honeymoon. i guess i'll have to be careful of bruises! glad you were able to find a rehearsal dinner dress!
