Oh Mondays...

I had such a great weekend and I wish that it was not Monday! But I have been busy at work so the day has gone by fast. I had my Texas Bachelorette party this past Saturday and we had such a great time. I will have to post pictures later because I don't have them on my computer yet. We first went and ate at PF Chang's, and it was so yummy! Then we headed to City Streets. It is a bar in Fort Worth that is like 4 clubs in 1. We stayed in the karaoke club the whole time and had a blast. My mom, sister and friend Lisa dedicated a song to me since I was marrying a farm boy from Kansas. It was "She thinks my tractors sexy." They sang it to me as well and it was so fun to watch. I never got the nerves to go up and sing because, well I just can't really sing! But even though I did not get up there I still had fun.

Only 13 more days until I get married!!! I have to work all this week, but I will spend next week in KS finishing everything up and getting ready for the big day. It is going to be great! At least I hope so!

19 days to go!!!

Yep only 19 more days until I am Mrs. Matt Schafer :) I am getting so excited but also stressed at the same time. I am trying to figure out the music for the ceremony and I am having the hardest time figuring out what I want. We know the songs for our first dances and things but just not for the ceremony. Any ideas???

Other than that things are falling into place. I am actually taking the week before the wedding off and spending it in KS finishing up last minute details. I was just going to go up there Wednesday but now I am glad I am taking the whole week.

I had my bachelorette party in Kansas last weekend. We had such a great time. We went and ate at Buca di Peppo. It was so much good. The waiters sang to me (You've lost that loving feeling) and we just talked and got to know each other more. Then a few of us went out to the Power and Light District. Nothing crazy happened but we had fun! This is me with Matt's gradmother, Aunt's, and 2 family friends.
(Only his mom and her friend went out with us after dinner :))
The crazy group :) Not really, just great friends!
The whole gang taken by the waitress! And yes that is the Pope in the middle of the table!

This week I will just be finishing up things like programs (once I fugure out music), sending out rehearsal dinner invites(that should have gone out last week!) and finishing up the wedding day schedule. I hope that does not make me a bridezilla, but I just like to be organized. Also this weekend my mom and sisters are coming up to have a Dallas bachelorette party with some of my friends from up here. I am very excited and can't wait to hang out with everyone and enjoy a stress free night!

1 month and counting...

I have one more month from today until I am Mrs. Schafer! I can't wait. I get more and more excited everyday. There seems like there is so much left to do, but I am probably just being a crazy bride :) Ha ha, I just hope I am not being a bridezilla! I am heading to KS by myself this weekend, for a shower and bachelorette party. I am so excited to see my friend Alisha. She moved to MN to pursue her PhD and I am so happy for her, but miss her like crazy. It will be so much fun to hang out with her again. The shower is going to be a Pampered Chef party. I have already picked out the things that I would like to have, so the guest will just pick from the board. It will be a lot of fun, well at least I hope. Matt's cousin Kim has put this all together for me. She is the best! I am finished with the gifts, we just need to get parent gifts. We are stumped at what to get them though. I am sure we will come up with something.

I just gave Matt a gift, because I knew I could not wait a month, and we had agreed on no gifts for each other. I made him a book on Shutterfly and had a blast doing it. I really was just playing around one day, but it turned out so cute I had to get it! He loved it. I had all these pictures from the past year and made it into a story called How an Aggie and a Wildcat Fell in love. It was perfect! He also said it was good I didn't give it to him on our wedding day because he will already be full of emotion and he wouldn't have wanted to cry. I thought that was so cute. So I am not counting down from a month! It is going to be such a long month I am sure.

Busy Busy Busy

I have been so busy lately that I have not kept up with this at all. So a little about what has been going on.

First the wedding is only weeks away and I am getting so excited. We mailed out invitations a few weeks ago so its happening! We also bought Matt's ring last Sunday. He was so picky, but it was cute. He kept saying that he wants what he wants because he will be wearing it for the rest of his life. That made me smile. We are heading up to KS this weekend for another round of counseling. This is the second to last one so that just shows us how close the big day is. Matt is also having his bachelor party this weekend, so I am sure I will be the one driving back on Sunday and letting him sleep :) Other than that we are getting the last few decorations togther and the last few payments with our vendors. We are so excited and can't wait to finally be husband and wife.

Next weekend I will be going up to KS alone for the first time since decemeber. It will be so weird to travel it by myself. I will be heading up there for a shower and my bachelorette party. I am very excited and can't wait to hang out with friends and family up in KS. I am sad that my mom and sister can not go but I will be able to hang out with them at the end of March. It just stinks because I really wanted them there to meet Matt's family and to just be a part of what is going on, but I also understand their reasoning.

Other than finishing wedding details and work not much else is going on. The one big thing that has happened lately is that one of my closetest friends in the world got engaged last sunday! She and I have been friends since like 6th grade, which is a long time. She means the world to me. Since high school we have both lived in different cities or states until this past year when we both lived in Arlington for a short time before she followed her heart to South Carolina. Even through the distance she has remained one of the most important people in my life. She is like a sister to me! So Congratulations Amber and Chris. I so happy for you both! Below are a picture of Amber and Chris, her beautiful ring, and their own private beach where he propsed. They met in Jamaica so he wanted to propose on a beach, it was cold in SC so he brought the beach inside. So sweet!
