under the 200 day mark!

Well, okay, we’re several days past the 200 day mark. (On my wedding countdown. Obviously.) To be specific, we’re at 193 days and counting! That, of course, does not excuse me from being a lame, lame blogger. I don’t even really have an excuse. Planning is in a bit of a lull, not much is going on at work, and since we’re broke (see wedding & unemployed fiance) we pretty much sit around and watch movies and play with the cat in the evenings. But. I. Love. My. Life. Seriously, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I have a secure job that I enjoy, a great home, a fantastic fiance who I am madly in love with, and the funniest cat in the world. What else do I need? A glass of wine, maybe. 🙂

I DO have some wedding planning updates, I’m not just going to gush all over the place. I have all of my bridesmaids gifts purchased! Unfortunately, some of them check in on here every now and again, so I can’t post them. But I promise I’ll update you with the details after the wedding. Or if you’re really interested, email me and I’ll tell you.

We have (finally) booked an officiant. This was a little bit more dramatic than necessary, since my parents are already bereft that the wedding is not going to be taking place in a church, they were somewhat vague when it came to what they wanted in an officiant. But, once everyone calmed down we were able to come to a reasonable consensus. We’ll be employing the wedding officiant services of Bill Cochran from Say “I Do” Your Way. I’m really excited to work with Bill. He has a ton of experiences with unhappy religious families 🙂 But no, really he’s been saying weddings for years and has a lot of great ideas and will be a great guide as we plan the ceremony. Additionally he gets great reviews from the ever-helpful ladies on the DC Knot board.

We also just booked a ceremony musician! At our friends Leah and Larry’s wedding a few years ago, they just had a solo classical guitarist play, and we absolutely loved it, so we always knew that’s what we wanted as well. Our DJ, Kirk Rubley of Kirkabee DJs recommended guitarist Giorgia Cavallaro, who he’s worked with a number of times. He sent us some of her music to listen to and we were hooked! Plus she has an awesome Italian name. She plays in a flute/guitar duo as well, called Flutar. If you go to their site, you can hear some of her ah-mah-zing music! I can’t wait to pick ceremony music now!

I have lots more to update you on… but we’ll leave it there for tonight. I promise no more two week gaps of me dropping off the planet, though!
