Almost there...

We are now 40 days away from the BIG DAY!!! We've come a long way in wedding preparations. We FINALLY found a place to live!! It's near UNLV, but is in a cute little neighborhood. It's 2 bedroom, 2 bath and a little over 1,200 square feet, and there really isn't much we need to do to it. Just get a new oven, get new countertops, new vanities in the bathrooms, paint a little, and scrape the POPCORN off the ceiling. Matt, the strapping young man he is, used to build houses in Idaho when he was younger, so he'll be able to do most of the work, thank goodness. Save a few dollars that we don't have. ;) The previous owners are also leaving their furniture for us!! There is an AWESOME oak table, an armioure, desk, dingle-berry lamp, king sized bed, and other odds and ends. I guess we won't be at D.I. as long as we thought...

Our announcements came in and we have almost finished addressing them. We are waiting on a few more addresses, but they should be in the mail by next week! That's been the big project lately, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!! My dress, and the bride's maids dresses have come in, and the altering is miminal, thank HEAVEN!

All we are really waiting on is the approval from our lendor, telling us that they are going to give us $ging-wah$ to buy this house!!!

We had our Bishop's interview last weekend. He started the interview with, "So, you guys finally decided that you couldn't stand to be without each other, eh?" Our bishop is one of the funniest guys we know. If you have seen Office Space (I wouldn't recommend it unless it's edited on TBS), the boss is just like our Bishop. He talks kinda slow, but boy, he's got a GREAT sense of humor.

As for the HONEYMOON, that's still a huge mystery. Matt wanted to do it all himself, so he's got it booked and all, but the only thing is, I don't know where we are going. And I won't know until we are at the airport, ready to get on the plane... All I know is that I had to get a passport (which came in in two weeks!!), I have to pack a swim suit, and it's in South America. That's fine with me. He's soooo good at surprising me. I can't wait!
Everything else is pretty much donzo. I'm meeting with the flower lady later to finalize that stuff. Matt is going to buy a new suit soon so we can go the the bridal portraits done. I've never seen anyone make a bigger fuss about talking some FREAKING pictures. He's all, "I don't want to see you in your dress before June 7th." Well too bad, kiddo. I don't want to stand outside the Temple in June in the HOT sun taking pictures. I'd rather get it done before then.
