One year from friday...

is the date. Um, that still seems like a long ways away, but I have a rather long to-do list and it doesn't seem to be getting any shorter. I have so much I want to do, but I feel silly starting so early. Does any of this make sense? I want to do all of the crafty stuff and I wish the bigger stuff (such as venues, DJ, catering, etc.) was done, but the wedding seems too far away to do the little things. And I don't have the big things done yet, which I can do right now, but don't want to.

Did I mention I don't like talking on the phone? And that's pretty much what I have been doing trying to get a reception venue lined up. I narrowed my choices down according to what we need and don't need. For example: we don't need expensive food, I'd prefer something easy and fun, like deli sandwiches or something like that. I really don't want to spend $20+ per person for food when I can get less expensive food and I'll feel more comfortable anyway.

I can just about check one item off the list though. Nick and I met with a photographer last Thursday and we have decided to use her. Check out to check her out. She did my sister's senior pictures and my friend's engagement pictures and they are both awesome! I love when things go easy and you can't really get much easier than that. I can breathe a little easier now knowing that I am going to get the pictures I want done by an excellent photographer. She does the fun artsy pictures as well as the formals and I really like that. Hopefully we'll also be doing our engagement pictures through her. We'll have to wait and see.

One more side not, Mom and I went to our local Dollar Tree on Saturday and I bought 13 boxes of bubbles for a dollar each. One hundred fifty-six bubbles for $12.00 plus tax! I also got silk rose petals for like $3.00 and some other stuff, so they can all be checked off the list too. :)
