Wow, my mom is talented

Mom and Dad came up to visit this week, because the point has come in the dress making process that requires it to be fitted to me. And I just have to say that my mother is one talented lady, it isn't even finished yet and it is already beautiful. We are going to David's Bridal tomorrow to try on sashes so that mom won't have to make one. We are doing shopping for fabric for table runners and shopping for the centerpieces.

Melinda sent a piece of wedding cake up for me and it is really really good. I don't know why she was worried about if I would like it, I mean after all it is cake and mom loves it so I was sure it is great. Now I can give it my full and total endorsement. I feel bad for mom and dad because they came all this way and my schedule is such that I am not available all that much.

Brad said that he is jealous that I got to try the wedding cake before he did, but he decided that he could be patient.

I have great news: I have been offered an internship for the summer with Target. It is a 10 week internship and I will get 3 credits of academic credit for it. Of course it is necessary for me to pass a drug test and a background check, so it might be a little shaky (because of my crazy past) wink, wink. I am the most boring person on the planet I pity the person who has the job of processing my drug test because it is absolutely boring. I am really excited about this opportunity because I will get to learn all about Target and how it works.

Brad started his training as a corrections officer this week, so far he has enjoyed it. He has said that he would like to work his way up and become an instructor at the police academy. I think this would be marvelous because I know that he would be really really good at it.

Princess Dresses and much more

I was the guest of honor at my first official bridal shower. My sister-in-law, sister, and best friend were kind enough to through me a party. They were also kind enough to no subject me to any ridiculous party games for which I am exceedingly grateful. We had lots of delicious food, a must for any successful party, lots of presents, and much fun. Erica and Katies provided a 72 hour Honeymoon survival kit complete with feather boa, bottles of water, baby oil, and peanut butter crackers. Marja got her contribution at Victoria's Secret and when Katelyn (who is 3 years old) saw what was in the boxes she exclaimed, "oh, look princess dresses". So we laughed for the rest of the evening about my "princess dresses". Everyone was so generous and lots of cousins and even my Aunt Arda came it was great.

Well, it is officially official. The announcements/invitations are in the mail. I am sure the guy who picks up the mail at the campus drop box loved opening it up to find 350 envelopes. Many kudos to Brad for sticking the return labels on every single envelope and then helping to put the announcement inside, and to Candy for inserting maps, sticking stamps, and moinstening envelope flaps. All that is left is the hand delivered ones, which will make church entertaining because it is always fun to hand out things in hopes that people won't be offended they didn't get one.

To update everyone on the count down we are under 2 months now. Yippee!!!!!!!!!! June 5th everybody, June 5th is the big day.
