Yesterday Scott and I were busy working on some wedding (ceremony) stuff. We decided later in the afternoon that we were going to go see the new Night At The Museum (great movie, by the way. Better than the first one.) with Brian and James. We had to go run a couple errands, so we decided to all meet at the apartment. Then when we realized what time it was and everything, we decided to make supper at the apartment too. I LOVE being in our apartment! I had so much fun making soup and biscuits, and asking Scott what he preferred for different things. And, we did manage to get all the dishes washed, dryed, and put away before we left for the movie. Scott really enjoyed sitting in the living room talking, while I was cooking. It was great! :)
Today we have another full day. We have to finish our ceremony details, get the oil in my car changed (it's been 6,200 miles since the last one, oops), have the emissions done on my car, hopefully take my dress to the Cleaner's (if we can find one that will do it), Scott has to go in to work for 1 hour for some safety class, so I'll be heading over to Target to get some stuff for the apartment, and then we have to meet with our Pastor to go over the wedding details. Oh, and we also need to move more stuff into the apartment and more stuff into the Storage Unit that we have. May all my readers have a wonderful, and blessed day!

10 Days left, and SO much to do!!! :) Hopefully we'll get everything done. Hannah and I figured out the decorations for the church yesterday. It will be perfect. :)
My Mother-in-Love, made the practice cake this week and she's all ready for the big one next week. :) We finally figured out how the cake is going to be decorated. I had an idea of how I wanted it, but then we had to try and find those accessories. Praise the Lord! everything worked out. :)
I realized the other night that I have to pack up and move from my home in less than 2 weeks. Even though I knew all of this was coming, and I thought I was fully prepared for it, apparently I wasn't. All of a sudden, it just struck that I'm moving out. Wierd. :) I can't wait to move into the apartment, but all of a sudden the reality hit that I'm moving. I'm supposed to be moving, that's what should happen. It's just strange, I guess. I'm probably not making much sense to anyone, or maybe I am to those who have already experienced this, or maybe I'm the only one (which I doubt, at least I hope not). :)

Only 14 days left. I'm so excited. We can't wait. :) I went grocery shopping for the first time yesterday so there would be some food in the apartment when Scott moves in on Monday (seeing as I only had Brown Rice, Oats, Popcorn, Brown Sugar, and Spices in there :) ). It was lots of fun however I lost my grocery list somewhere in the store, before I had started doing my grocery shopping. So I had to try and remember everything, but I at least got the essentials, including some Strawberry yogurt for my Man to take to work (it was on sale, and it's his favorite flavor). I know this is another short post, but we have a full day today.

Everything is coming together. The Bridesmaids dresses are completely done. We have to work on the favors, but everything is coming together. My Mom and I just finished making sure the beading was all secure on my dress before sending it to the cleaner's this weekend to be cleaned and pressed and then hung in my room all laid out with a sheet over it, until the wedding.
I'm working on a post on the apartment, and the progression of everything, but I still haven't uploaded all the photos yet, but it is in the works. :)

Shayna is correct. The movie is "Pride and Prejudice." I love this version. It does not follow the books as much as my favorite version (the 5-hour long one with Colin Firth), but the style and everything about it is very fun. I showed it to Scott on TV one time, and then he bought me this on DVD for Christmas because he liked it so much he agreed that we should have it in our collection. :)

So far my blog has mostly been about the wedding, and everything that's going on right now. Don't get me wrong, that is NOT a bad thing. But I thought it was time to do something different. So, guess what movie Scott and I were watching with his parents:
Leave a comment with your answer.

21 Days and I will be married!!!!!!!!!Mrs. Scott Appleton! That is who I'll be!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited! I can't wait. Everything is coming together so nicely. The last BM dress is being finished today and then my Grandmother and Mother will be all done with their wonderful, faithful work! This wouldn't have been possible without them.
My Dad took me out for my Birthday last night and we had a lovely time enjoying dinner and then I showed him the apartment with some furniture in it since he hadn't seen it since before I painted. It was a great night with my Dad. :)
I would write more, but today is a very busy day. Pick up Mana, book signing, and then a PartyLite show tonight. Busy, busy, busy. :)

That's right, only 36 days left. That is, 35 days, 10 hours, and 25 minutes until I will be Scott's wife! :) Everything is moving right along. I just finished tagging all the boutonnieres for the Groomsmen. I'm working on the Seating chart (which is close to half-way done) and my Sister-in-law-to-be has started taking care of part of the favors for me (she is such a great sister and friend).
The book is doing great, and we finally have the Hardcover Edition It looks so great, and it is so rewarding for my Man to have the Hardcover. :)
Scott's parents bought us a Glider/Rocking chair last week and we moved it into the apartment on Wednesday. Scott really likes it, and I know he will do lots of writing in it. :) On Thursday we went and found the perfect couch (well, loveseat, that is) for our little place. We can't wait to get it moved in.
I am also starting out on a new venture as a PartyLite Consultant. I am so excited. My starter show is next Friday. I'm going to try to do 6 shows by the end of this month, before the wedding. :)
So yes, I am very busy. I am most excited this coming week because I get to watch my little nephew for a few hours. He is getting so big already. and is absolutely adorable! :) It is so amazing to me how God's design is so intricate and how a little baby can be so small, and yet grow so quickly. How anyone can believe that we "evolved from monkeys (or something else)" is far beyond me. There are miracles everywhere, that everyone sees, that if they just took a moment, they would realize just how AMAZING God is. I can't help but just stand in awe of my Awesome God.
