Wedding planning and all that jazz

Remember that time I entered that crazy photography giveaway, and Ross & I became finalists, and everyone had to vote for us, and the contest got almost 2,000 votes in less than 3 days?

Well, we didn't win. But hey, no one likes a sore loser.

A big thank you to all of our family and friends who voted... and a special BIG thank you to those of you who re-posted the link, voted a crazy high number of times, and left witty comments with every posting. Thanks to one avid voter, my fiance is now known to the blogging world as "Rossers!" (Cheers to you Michael McSwain!)

So we didn't win... but we did get third place! (cough cough... out of third)

Anyway... this contest was a huge eye opener for me. I woke up Monday morning and was all in a panic about the voting. I stressed for 24 hours straight about it. Then I realized I was being ridiculous (not sure if I realized that on my own or if Ross hinted at it first). I had an epiphony that "hey- this whole wedding planning thing is supposed to be a happy time, not a stressful time!" So, I have decided to do something I have never done in my life... relax and be calm! (INSERT GASPS OF SURPRISE HERE)

We have checked many of the "biggies" off of our list, and now its time for the little fun details. Thankfully I have my crafty Nana running around making custom center pieces in the middle of every craft store in NC... and getting every other shopper and store employee's opinion on them!

(These aren't the ones Nana made.... I just thought these were pretty neat)

We have picked out a venue, photographer, officiant, caterer, DJ, and DRESS! WOO HOO! Now I just need to tell all of those people/things that I picked them. I think that's my to-do list for the weekend! Wait... can I have to-do lists when I am relaxing and being calm?

(I'm not sure what the monkey has to do with anything... I just liked him)
