I am adding in a bit of the wedding goodness to my blog. I feel it is a safe place to share my ideas, thoughts and the photos I find. If it bores you to death or makes you want to vomit no one is holding a gun to your head to read it. So here goes...
The wedding...funny, Josh has more thoughts on the subject than I do! He had two "musts"...a ceremony and pulled pork. He kills me. My sister had pulled pork and it was oh so good so there is no problem there for me. I asked him why he was so set on having a ceremony and I thought he would start in on one of his 'it's tradition' speeches, but oh no, he said Carol (his aunt on his mom's side) will kill me if I don't have a ceremony. Really!?
So I was talking with Josh's new sister-in-law Camela and she asked if we had a date set yet. I told her no, but Josh said we have to have a ceremony and pulled pork. She started laughing and I thought it was because she doesn't eat pulled pork, but oh no it's because her husband- another Soulsby boy happened to say Carol would kill him if they eloped. I started laughing because why is all of this so important to the boys and does Carol even know they feel this way!?
So then came really narrowing down a date. First it was June, July or September to work with Josh's cows. You know they are the number one women in his life. The last two weekends were looking best since it could snow in early June here in ole Montana. When I mentioned the last weekend in June Josh said 'oh it can't be close to the Fourth of July because Carol will kill me!' Are ya kidding me!? Again, I need to talk this Carol, or perhaps we just need to have a meeting with her or run the ideas past her first.
Josh and I have decided that June 23, 2012 will be our big day.
Interesting to think back to all of our big days...
September 5, 2008 we met.
March 29, 2010 Eli was born.
June 23, 2012 we will be married.
A bit out of order and looking at it now very sporatic. Maybe we need a December date as well to have all for seasons/quarters. Well December 2008 I bought my house and December 2009 we found out we were having Eli. So I guess it's balanced. Everything about all of it seems so natural. That's how I know it's right. I found these invites and they cracked me up- SO us!
While driving to Missoula to see a specialist for Eli (and stay with Carol, the wedding influencer) we discussed our wedding plans and ideas. We laughed that she could review all of our thoughts on the wedding before we make any big decisions. Too funny. More on those as the date comes closer, some logistics still need to be worked out and folks formally asked.
So many other things to decide, find, create, pay for, you know all that great stuff that will hopefully not turn me into a bridezilla. Stay tuned for the L + J = LOVE planning extravaganza.
