He's Coming Home!

Well sorry it has been a long while but I have been overwhelmed with school and wedding stuff. I have worked three 11-hour days at school this week and I am quite burned out. It has been an interesting and frustrating week at school. I am working with being at peace with certain things. I got to meet most of my students Wednesday night at orientation. I still haven't met two of them. This year will be good but I have no doubt it will present challenges and obstacles of its own different from last year.

Even though I am exhausted I am excited because Jonathan is coming home today. He will get here late tonight and I couldn't be more excited!!! I am sad it is only for a little while but I will definitely take what I can get. We have a busy weekend ahead of us. On Saturday we are eating lunch with his mom's family, then we are heading to Athens to get him fitted for his tux. Then we will probably eat with my parents and get dad to take a few pictures to use for the reception.

Jonathan has to go back Saturday night to his mom's to go to church with them and eat with more of his family. I will be at Winterville Sunday morning where they are having their shower Sunday afternoon. Jonathan and I are going to meet back up later that day to drive to the airport to pick up his dad and Karen. We are going to eat dinner with them on the way back to their house. Then after spending a little bit of time there we will head back towards my apartment. Then Monday is the first day of school. So I need to find some energy from somewhere to get through this weekend and next week.

Pictures from Europe

Dad and I enjoying the beautiful view from the western most point in Europe. It was absolutely gorgeous and I did not want to leave that place!
Mom and dad LOVED the huge flowers! They were quite jealous that theirs never grew to be this big! Haha, this was outside the Pena Palace in Portugal.

Well I figured out how to upload pictures so I thought I would upload a few real quickly. This is me in front of court 17 at Wimbledon.

Getting Closer

Well yesterday I went to do a trial run with my hair do with Cassidy, the girl that is doing my hair for my wedding. It looked good and if I can ever figure out how to put pictures up on here I will put a picture of it up. I have not showered yet this morning so it is still a lot of curls going everywhere.

I am about to shower and get ready to go to a shower, not mine. My good friend and old roomie Bray is getting married in September and I have a shower for her today in Athens. So I am looking forward to seeing her! I haven't seen her in so long. I get to see her two weeks in a row! Melanie and Bray are both throwing me a shower next week, it will be my first one! YAY! I am excited that everything is getting close. It makes me nervous that everything is not ready but I know I have done all I can do right now.

We will be starting back in school soon and I am trying to do my best to get everything ready so I have less to worry about once we get back. I have most of my bulletin boards started but I still have to put all my posters and everything back up on the walls.

Jonathan will be home in two weeks and I am more excited about that than anything! I read my sister's blog about anticipating Josh getting home and I wish I would have only had to go a week! It's ok though, I know she misses him! I am just excited that Jonathan will be home soon, even if it is only for a little while. I love him so much and can't wait to be his wife! Well I have to go get ready for Bray's shower.

Wedding Bells

Well it has yet again been a while but with good reason. Jonathan and I will be getting married in a month, August 15th. So I have been super busy getting everything together. Today I went and picked out the tuxedos for the guys. It was fun but I think the people were about ready to shoot me because I kept changing stuff on them! But in the end we got it all worked out.

I also got my wedding band purchased and it is going to get sent out to get sized tomorrow so hopefully that will all be done in about two weeks. It took me a while to find one that worked with my lovely engagement ring but this sweet old man help me find one that works well and looks lovely. I got Jonathan's ring ordered and it might be here as soon as the end of this week.

I am going Friday to do a trial run with my hair dresser and have a wedding shower on Saturday for my old roommate who is getting married in September. I am very excited about everything and it is all coming together very nicely. Continue to pray for Jonathan as he finishes his last two weeks of AIT in Missouri and gets ready to come home to the planning madness! lol. Pray that everything continues to work out well with all the wedding details.
