I hope that everyone had a Happy Easter yesterday!

The Mister and I got up early to go to early service and have brunch at church. Then we headed home to work on wedding details because, you know, we’re only 12 freaking days away!

We have officially finished up designing our ceremony programs. They have been emailed to the pastor for his final review and approval. If he gets back to us today, then we’ll be assembling them tomorrow while we watch Lost. We used Mrs. Spaniel’s programs for inspiration; check out hers at Tying the Knot.

We also spent a couple hours picking out music for the ceremony. When we began planning the ceremony, we wanted to have live music and sat down with the organist from our church. In the long run, we finally decided that was an area of our budget where we could save money. Between the two us, we have healthy iTunes libraries so it wasn’t a big challenge to get music that we both liked. Some of our choices include Carlos Santana, Ben Harper and a piece from a Charlie Brown Christmas.

This weekend I also went shopping with my future MIL Tizzy* and her sister. We started the morning by doing a trail run on the spray tanning. I don’t want to blind people with my white legs, and I simply don’t have the time to layout in the sun. But I’m really please with the results, and for 10 minutes of my time, I’m pretty darn pleased with my glow.

Then we headed to the mall to pick out a pair of earrings that Tizzy is going to let me borrow on permanent loan for my “something borrowed.” We also found dresses for both the ladies to wear to the wedding and one for me to wear out to dinner the night before.

We also made a stop at Michael’s. It’s amazing to me how often I head out to the craft stores these days. This weekend’s trip should be one of the last. The Mister and I are deep in the throes of the DIY period of wedding preparation; however, I’m also at the point that if the supplies are not yet bought, then the project is probably getting cut.

Clearly, we’re pretty busy these days. But we’re getting married in 12 days!

*Tizzy is a nickname. Her grandchildren call her that because when they were young, they couldn’t pronounce her first name.
