and git-r-dun we did. on wednesday, we signed contracts & paid deposits with the florist & dj. finished paying for the reception hall. picked out our wedding bands - custom designed mine and put a deposit on it, paid for jesse's and it's being sized, they'll both be in within a week :) got some extra invitations for some stragglers. got tulle circles and wire ribbon for favors. applied for our marriage license and got all my name change paperwork! of course i made jesse take a picture outside of the courthouse :)

yesterday, i met with my future mother-in-law, jerri, and future aunt-in-law, marisa, at our ceremony site to talk about decoration ideas and how we want to set things up on w-day. we're getting married at marisa's bed & breakfast, called the lighthouse bungalow, which is right on the water in town, with the capitol building on one side and the olympic mountains on the other side from the view in the back. the pictures there are going to be beautiful - hope for sunshine! here are a few pictures of the bungalow from marisa's website:
mom & i went shopping today for her outfit and by some crazy miracle we found something she liked! it looked really cute on her, and she felt comfy in it, so a big two thumbs up there. and by some bigger miracle, I FOUND MY SHOES!! i have been looking in any store that remotely has anything that resembles something to wear on your feet and have come up quite disappointed. until today. behold:that's right. hot pink and leopard inside. we had to special order them for my ridiculously small feet, so i cant wait for them to come in and i can pick them up and wear them around my house and get blisters so they don't completely destroy my feet when it really counts.

i also ordered some placecard holders that i'm going to uses as picture "frames" for table decorations. i didn't want to pay a jillion dollars for flowers to decorate the reception with, so we're going with something a little more personalized (and much cheaper):

aaaand right now i'm working on starting our favors. swedish fish of course. 1) because jesse is my fisherman and 2) because jordan almonds are GROSS and i still haven't recovered from yeimi's reception after making her favors and eating my weight in after-dinner mints.

that's all for now. gonna watch one more episode of psych, have one more glass of wine, finish as many favors as i can get through, and head to bed (quite late, might i add, for this already past her time 89-year-old trapped in a 20-something exterior)
