I am so ready for a much needed break from work. I am leaving today and driving to KS to spend Thanksgiving with my future in-laws. Matt and I have a lot to do over the next few days for the wedding so there will not be a lot of resting. We are going to check the location out and get some decorating ideas, look over caterer information, and cake ideas. We will also be going to get our registries done, so that will be a fun time. Other than that, his mom and I will be looking at material to make my dress. She is amazing at this type of stuff and the dress that I want is very simple, yet elegant. It will be less expensive for her to make the dress than for me to buy it. Also Matt and I will be finalizing colors! He doesn't know all this yet, but will soon find out :)

The last big thing we will do this weekend is the guest list. We are trying to keep it under 200 people, which to me is still a lot of people. He has a pretty big family so that is where most of the number will be coming from. I am less stressed about all this, I have decided that whatever happens, happens. I don't want to be a bridezilla, or one that worries about the little things. I know it is going to be a great day because I am marrying the most amazing man! I could not be happier about that. With that mind set things have become easier for me.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday Lea!!

And Gig'em Ags! (even though the don't have a chance, I will still be rooting for them!)

Planning a wedding is SO much fun! Brandon was just as involved in the planning as I was so that helped me a lot. He loved registering for things. My family said they knew he did a lot of it because there was so much cookware and they knew that wasn't me! LOL! We're going to Kansas in December.....Brandon's family is in Salina. Where in Kansas are you going?
