Follow the Bride- Episode 8

We've accomplished a lot over the holidays wedding wise. With school being so hectic and all, we haven't had time to focus on the things that need to get done. Since school's been out we've.....

- tried my wedding dress on for the umpteenth time and hummed and hawed over makeup and my veil
- bought up a few Christmas lights (on sale)
- searched and finally found burlap
- purchased Matt's entire wedding outfit (pants, shirt, shoes, tie, vest)
- established a more realistic expectation for the number of wedding guests
- started a wedding registry online with myregistry.com (we'll see how that works out)
- went through all of our personal belongings in our respective parents homes and sorted out what we could donate, trash, sell and keep
- collected some amazing donations and gifts from our families to start our lives together
- packed those gifts and some previously owned items so we're ready when we need to move across the country from Ontario to British Columbia in a van.


So that bring us to today! We're at my mom's house now after spending a few days at Matt's working on the things I listed above and relaxing before the year is up.

What are your New Years Eve plans?

We're staying in. This seems to be the trend with most of my friends. I feel too old going to the bar and we'd much rather stay home with a bottle of wine and some fancy cheese. I think we're going to rent a film or a series on DVD to cap it all off.  Before the new year I also want to make some lists. I was reading a business book and it inspired me to write  a list as to why I want to get married. I'll update you next week on what I came up with!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
