If life wasn't crazy enough with working on our home, Ryan and I getting used to living together after having opposite schedules, trying to figure out my place in the photography world, enjoying our adorable lil' nephews Evan, Forrest, and Levi plus Vivian, our adorable niece... Ryan and I also have a puppy or at least is the size of one, Jack, who is a Jack Russell mix! How fun and YES, and a little crazy, but we wouldn't have it any other way!

The Almost Perfect Blue Wedding Shoes! :)

After looking somewhat long and hard... without having to resort to dyables... I found these cute little pair! They may be a little taller than Ryan but are SO comfy (even though they may not look it)! Can't wait to put the whole look together!

Keri's Visit

Keri and my visit to Spring Lake and Grand Haven was very much a success! Not only did dress sizing and ordering go smoothly, we also got up in to the reception room in the Grand Hall... and to our surprise when we got to Kirk Park, a wedding party was there getting pictures!

I'm glad she had the opportunity to see it all!

Thanks for coming to town, Keri! :)

Slowly but Surely Things are Getting Accomplished...

Yes... its be weeks and weeks since I got anything new accomplished for the wedding. Guess you can say I've been "wedding-ed out"! Exhausted to say the least. I've been enjoying the new addition to our family, Jack, which has helped me smile and exercise a bunch more! :) BUT this week we did get a few things done with the help of my mom. She picked some burlap up, which is what we are using as an overlay on the tables and found napkins that not only are the perfect "pool/tiffany" color but perfect size to use in the center of the table to set the canning jars and wine bottle on! It is turning out to be very similar to the original picture I was basing the table decorations on! We like the lighter color of burlap, since it reminded me more of sand than the dark brown burlap.

Also, we visited eightWests Bridal Party at Notos on Wednesday! Can't say everyone there was brides but it was something to do. We had higher expectations... the vendors focused on music, florists, and decorations it seemed. None of which we need!

Tomorrow, Keri is coming up to get sized for her bridesmaid dress! We are also going to venture to Porto Bellos and Kirk Park so she can get an idea of what we are working with!

Next weekend, my sister-to-be (Jenni and Rachel), Vanessa, and I are going to get them sized for their bridesmaid dresses!

OH... almost forgot the best part of what has been getting accomplished! I stopped in to a local store in Caledonia and got part of the ladies bridesmaid gift! I can't wait to see them when they are done! :) Should take about 2 weeks.... I also got one similar for myself!

OH, OH, OH.... TOTALLY FORGOT... I ORDERED MY WEDDING SHOES! Found them on DSW... don't want to give too much away cause I want them to be a surprise to Ryan but they are adorable and match everything PERFECT! Only thing is... I hope I'm not too much taller than Ryan! Basically I have to be barefoot to be shorter than Ryan!

Bridezilla Sculpting Wahoo!!


Wow... its not even close to what I expected, its BETTER!

At the moment, Michelle and I basically have a personal trainer! Megan is fun and works our butts off. She gives no mercy!

Today was shoulders... and I feel so weak! I started with a resistance band and had to be down graded to a 2 lb. yoga ball. Guess I know my weak point! I'm hoping that I'm not THAT weak but when you add in the fact I'm still sick... that probably didn't help anything.

I have to make sure this hard work doesn't go to waist and when I'm health again... I need to find my way to the Weaver-Fiebig Basement Gym!
