top five things ive learned while being engaged...

1. being engaged for five months is too long. its a lot less stress because you have so long to figure everything out but we have about a week and a half left and i am dying! im so anxious and ready for it to be here. im pretty sure if i had been engaged for three months and was a week and a half away id still probably be anxious but still.... im ready. bring it on.

2. my fiance loves to be involved. i have to pass everything by him. i love it. hes so cute. the basement of my house has practically become a storing unit for all things wedding and the other day bryson came across the knife we bought to cut the cake and was shocked that i hadnt told him we had picked that up. he loves to know whats going on and i think its oh so precious.

3. i get cranky when im anxious. we'll just leave it at that.

4. corsets make for difficult breathing. today we took my bridals outside at the gardens at thanksgiving point. it was really fun to get in my dress and get all dolled up but i think by the end of the wedding day i will want to burn the dress. it looks fabulous but it will cost you....

5. it doesnt matter if its the last sunday you have in your singles ward and youre getting married six days later youll still get called on to give a talk........ so close.....

Weddings do sneak up on you! I'm really excited for you. Um, but I'm totally bummed that I didn't get an announcement. Hopefully it's on its way. wink wink

And...I switched my blog so it's not private anymore. Come visit.

Hey Jaclyn, do you get married this week? crazy! well it was good talking to you the past couple of days! I want to let you know that i erased one of my comments on the other post. it was the one with my address and phone number. its not cause i take back what i said :) I just didn't want a creepy person showing up at my house or calling me. i figured you already got the info. well thats cute that bryson wants to be so involved!

ya Tim would just say it was all up to me..not helpful! And I feel your pain on the corset thing! Hello! i got a dress from the same place and I had the triple threat, cuz I had that lace panel.. I ended up loosening it on the actual day when I could no longer feel my legs beneath me. Anywhoosers, I didn't even know you had a blog and for that.. I blame you!
