Showered With Love

So today was my first wedding type festivity, a bridal shower in Greenville. I was so happy to have my best friends, family, and some future family members there to spend time with me. Another happy memory I am glad to have made. 

The wedding planning continues, and I'm hoping that all of the details will fall into place before our big day. I feel unprepared, but I am excited to see all of my family and friends.

So here's to trying to get the wedding details together, all while having a 50 hour work week coming up! Its going to be a busy week.

40 Days and Counting...

So my life as an Oakes has not officially begun- Afterall, I need to marry my Oakes man first! We got all the addresses and such together today and finished up the invitations. Its off to the post office first thing in the morning and they will be on their way. I can't wait to see who will be there on our special day. It will be good to share our new life with old friends, and to begin the next chapter of our lives with our new families. My sisters are so excited they will finally have a real brother, and I'm pretty excited to be getting some new brothers of my own, and not to mention 4 wonderful sisters!

This time is hectic and stressful, but yet exciting and I'm loving every minute of it. I can't wait to be married but I'm savoring these last moments in the house I grew up in, with my mom who still takes care of me, until the day I will be taking care of the man who will be my new family.

Stay posted for more blogging about what Brian and I are up to. In the meantime, go here to get all the latest about our wedding.

Sending love to all of our family everywhere. "I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy" (Philippians 1:3-4)  

Be seeing you soon :)
