2 days! I rode my bicycle past your window last night...

Christopher insisted we exchange wedding gifts before the wedding. He claims he couldn't bring my gift to the wedding... you'll see why!

I made him open my gift first. I got him a set of three Chicago team pictures from this etsy shop. The Bears picture was a real sacrifice for me, beause I am a Green Bay Packer fan. Christopher wants to have a Man Cave (but after seeing Perfect Couples we've decided on The Cave rather than a Man Cave) in our future basement, so that's where these are intended. I grew up a Brewers Fan, but I agreed to change my baseball allegiance to his beloved Sox:
White Sox
He brought his pictures to work for now until we have a nice basement to fix up. I also bought him a tie clip from this etsy shop. It's hammered finish on the front and our initials and wedding date are engraved on the back.
 Not our initials! Christopher's says, "A&C 4-30-11"
I've been telling Christopher since we started dating how I've always wanted a big ol' granny basket for my bicycle. He remembered! My first present was the basket! Then, he led me outside and I found a bicycle! It's a vintage bike from the 1960's! He's been ordering new parts for it and he's going to fix it up for me this summer. How stinkin' CUTE is this bike?! I can't wait to pedal to the grocery store this summer.
TWO DAYS! I'm getting really nervous / excited / anxious! I'm not at all nervous to marry Christopher... just nervous to walk down the aisle and have everyone staring at me. I'm a little shy. :o)

La la la so excited...............................! I'm off to start packing for the weekend and next week. Christopher's got a mini-moon planned for us. Our "real" honeymoon will be over Thanksgiving. We're going someplace warm then!

10 Days

Bridal Shower #1 (hosted by coworkers)
Bridal Shower #2 (hosted by my maid of honor and my stepmom)

I've been MIA because we've been soo crazy busy with last-minute wedding things. I'm starting to create sub plans for my guest teacher for the 6(!) days I'll be off from school. Considering I've never taken a personal day in my four years of teaching (or at any other job), it seems so weird taking six! Sub plans are a pain in the bum, but it's so worth it. I can't wait!

We're making everything (decorations, flowers, programs, etc.) ourselves and I'm so excited to post pictures of it all soon. We're also doing a photobooth at the reception and I know that'll be awesome.

One thing we didn't make was our invitations. I found them in this shop on etsy.

Only 10 days..... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (that's me squealing while I do a double fist pump and jump). I'm SO excited!

29 days until The Day / 25, 26, 27, 28

I hardly had a chance to catch my breath this week, let alone see Christopher. My week was filled with report cards, parent-teacher conferences, writing thank you notes to my wonderful friends and family that attended my (other) bridal shower, and applying for a summer Writing Project. Christopher had buddies in town over the weekend. One stayed a few days extra, so he was busy as well.

Tomorrow morning we are headed to Pre-Cana Class. We'll be meeting with a group of couples also preparing for marriage in the Catholic church. I don't know what to expect, but I'm looking forward to it. My dad will be in the area tomorrow, working on the farmhouse. He requested we drop Telula off so he can doggysit her. Too cute!

Though I've been long done with the 30, I'm still trying to finish posting:
