I know I'm already married, but I can't help but be excited for our big celebration. We've been doing a lot of work around here...I don't even want to share pictures of all of our DIY projects because I want it to be a big surprise.

We finally finished all of the centerpieces. It took us longer than expected, but I'm so glad we took the time to do them. I having been recruiting friends and family left and right to make this all happen. I'm so thankful that they all wanted to help!

There are still some last minute things I need to finish and some phone calls to make but my list is almost finished. I'm also really happy that my sister is so creative because it comes in reallyyy handy when I need it the most :).

My friend Andrea, who is going to do my make-up, came over tonight and did a demo. She did an awesome job and It made me even that more anxious. We have decided that in order to infect Liv with the excitement we are going to tell her that she is going to a princess party, where she is going to have to wear her princess dress and lots of princesses will be there with their's on too. We've been having issues getting her to want to keep her dress on, oy.

Oh, and my baby? She turned 23 months on the second and I didn't even acknowledge it like usual. I'll sum her up as: the funniest person I know, wannabe princess on the verge of overly obsessive, loves to talk our ears off, play outside, read books, and bug her mama.

So...yes, Pat will be here soon, I'm excited, I've said this a few times...I will end my rant now. Here are two pictures from down in Chicago :)

  1. Sooo exciting! We went to a wedding this past weekend and it was so beautiful and so much fun!! It totally made me want to get married all over again! Can't wait to see pictures of your big day!

  2. I'm excited too! I've heard a few of my friends say that about their weddings, so I hope I feel the same way after :).
