Our last weekend as an engaged couple

This last weekend before the wedding was a busy one! And not even with our own wedding stuff... there was just lots going on.

Friday night after work I ran into the downtown plaza mall to pick up a few things - a tie clip for James and a dress for me. Before Macy's I looked at Forever 21 and another teenage girl store. I feel weird and old there! Totally don't fit in anymore. Anyway, I found a great dress at Macy's on clearance for $25 - regularly $99. I also found a tie clip on sale at Macy's, so it was a successful trip.

On Saturday we went to a lamb BBQ at Scribner Bend Vineyards, hosted by some friends of ours. It was so much fun! Delicious wine, fab food and awesome people - we had a great time.

Sunday morning I did a lot of packing for the wedding. This is what the entryway to our house looks like! Almost everything we're taking to the wedding, from candles to wine. We still have to pack our clothes for the week.

Last night was the wedding of two friends of mine, Michelle and Adam. It was held at The River Mill in French Camp - beautiful!

Here's my gameplan for the coming week:

Today/Tomorrow: Working and packing.
Wednesday: I'm working a half day, then we're off to Santa Cruz!!
Thursday: Shopping to stock our beach house with food for the week, plus a mani/pedi.
Friday: Assembling flowers in the morning, rehearsal at night.

And throughout all this I have to try not to catch James' cold. Yes, the groom is sick!! I'm just hoping he's better by this weekend. I don't think I've ever not gotten a cold when he had one. I'm taking airborne, drinking lots of water and getting enough sleep. I don't know what else I can do but I'm open to suggestions!

I can't believe it's almost here! The week before our wedding, my husband was so sick. His parent's had never seen him so sick in his whole life. He ended up being completely fine for the wedding! I hope this week flies by for you, and that you can get everything done!

Oh how exciting! Enjoy this last week before the wedding!

I think you're doing all you can do avoid getting his cold, but just try not to kiss, share drinks, and wash your hands alot. Use hand sanitizer too. It wouldn't hurt to sanitize all the door knobs and commonly used things! :)
