It's closing in!

3 days left til the big day. We've had loads of family coming in this week. My cousin Tobi just graduated from UNLV yesterday, so a lot of them came up for that and will be staying through the weekend! Having the family here makes it seem more real to us! It's so much fun! Jason was able to get a Christmas tree for free on base, so he donated it to our family!

Sadly, after trying so incredibly hard to keep away from getting sick... the sick bug has caught me. I've spent the last several days taking meds and TRYING to sleep, but it's hard to rest at this point! Oh well... hopefully it'll go away, if not, I suppose I'll just be a sick bride. Jason is enjoying his days off and short days at work, and he's just trying to keep up with me and how busy I am. He's also been taking care of me while I've been sick! What a fantastic guy! ^_^

We just finished up teaching our quarter of the Sunday school. We threw a small party for the kidos this past Sunday, they did a White Elephant game with presents and we brought donuts. Now we're off for the next quarter. Most likely we'll volunteer again. They're a good group of kids!

THEN, Jason planned a surprise "last date before we're married." He had me guessing all the way to the location. It was indoor go kart racing. It was pretty intense. Jason use to race motorcycles so he was absolutely ecstatic to start that race. The karts could get up to 45 mph and there were lots of twists and turns. It really was a wee bit scary, but it was fun for a last little date before the wedding.

Wedding plans are slowly coming to an end, now we're just taking care of helpers and who's going to do what. Jason and I are only full of excitement for the big day to arrive. We both had our bachlorette/bachlor parties this past weekend with our close friends and some family. We just cannot wait to be married! And the stress level is so low right now, it's all just fantastic! Really all we have left is packing up our belongings to get ready for the big move to our new house. YAY!!!

Let It Snow?

We had a surprise snow fall a couple days ago! It's been a nice 60 degrees for the past month and then BANG! Today, the snow has pretty much melted and I've been watching the weather everyday since. The weather man SAYS it should be 59 degrees and 45 at night on Dec. 19th. Fingers crossed! I'm trying to not worry so much about it, no matter what the weather is, the wedding should be fine either way! ^_^ The whole idea is to celebrate the new marriage, cold or not! So bring your jackets and scarves because it's going to press on weather the weather cooperates or not!

In other wedding news, the loose ends are slowly being tied up! Wedding favors are done! Mitchi spent a day in the hospital finishing them up as well as our marshmallow bags to throw when we leave. She's awesome! Music...check, photos...check! 10 more days to go! Crazy how much planning goes into this day! We checked out flowers the other day as well. They should be pretty too!

Life with Jason and I have been hectic as usual. Jason just finished up their Inspection that lasted a week long. He survived working crazy hours, sometimes which were 4:15 am to 7:00 pm!! Fortunately, they passed! Jason's also being nominated for Air Man of the quarter, for the second time I might add! I have been busy busy with finishing the wedding details as well as doing some extra tutoring with some 3rd graders from our school. There are 8 girls and 3 boys... lets just say I'm so happy to be teaching boys! :) We're excited for family coming into town in the next week!!!! This should be a very fun, and interesting couple weeks coming up! YAY!
