Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last posted! I guess blogging falls down the priority list when you try to buy a house and plan a wedding within 6 months of each other! Also? We’re only 5 months and 10 days away! Unbelievable.

So what have we been up to so far in 2012? The short answer is ALL THE THINGS.

For the wedding we have done the following, but still have a mile long to-do list:

  • Created Save the Dates – They will be mailed next week!
  • Planned the best bridal shower in the history of bridal showers with Kelsey and my mama (HARRY POTTER, WHAT?)
  • Got the perfect card box! Justin picked it out, he’s basically #1 fiance in the world.
  • Completed most of our wedding registry, just a couple more things to add!
  • Picked up another piece of my ensemble, a piece I wasn’t sure I wanted, but it adds so much class
  • Met with the minister – Found out we speak the same love language, so that’s good, right?

For the house:

  • Changed all the doorknobs and deadbolts
  • Hung bathroom fixtures
  • Setup our dining room with Jut’s mom’s dining room set. It fits really well in the space, and is a nice reminder of her.
  • Cleaned like crazy people, with the help of my amazing mother and her steam cleaner :)
  • Put up blinds in all the front facing windows, minus one
  • Got a welcome mat and inside floor mats for the doors
  • Had sewege backup into our basement on New Year’s Eve! We got it taken care of, and got assurance that there is nothing seriously wrong with our pipes, so that was good news after a crappy experience. Pun intended :)
  • Bought a fireplace screen and tools, and had our first real fire last night!
  • Picked up a closet system for the small closet, to keep us organized until we can build out the big closet
  • Bought a snow shovel, and used it for the first time last night. This is kind of a big deal, since we’ve never had to buy a snow shovel before!

Oh, and we also found out we have deer living in our backyard! We saw one when we left for the gym the other night, and it was there again when we got home! At least it wasn’t our bear friend, which we hope won’t return when it’s done hibernating :)

In other news, we’re still training for the half-marathon, and successfully dieting and getting in shape for the wedding! I’m doing yoga a couple times a week, and it’s really helping me freak out less about everything we have left to do! Justin is a saint, and bearing with me as the days pass and my stress level rises. He really is the most patient guy in the world!

So that’s us, currently. We’re in a really good place right now, physically and emotionally, and excited to be going at this together.

I’ll be back soon with a new posting series, which will keep you updated on all the house upgrades we’re getting ourselves into :)
