Does Everybody Know What Time It Is?

If you said (or shouted) "Tool Time!" kudos for the 90s Home Improvement reference, however, you would be wrong. Today is officially the 7 month mark until the BIG day. EEK! and YAY! *confetti cannon*

As has become a bit of a tradition (really... does two consecutive months in a row make a tradition???) it's time for a quick recap of all the amazing progress made in the last 31 days, annnnd a look ahead.  Are you ready for this? I went nuts last month!

- Honeymoon destination reselected; itinerary set up; flights arranged; initial deposit paid.
- Brooch Bouquet (huge PITA and success): rest of brooches ordered; backs wired - talk about a                   marathon...but I digress; bouquet assembled and secured ready for final touches.

- Try and finish Shoes.
- Figure out overall look/concept for Invitation Suite
- Finish up BM bags and give out the rest (and find a box to send BM J's).
- Figure out contents/items to purchase for OOT bags (and how this will work)
- Work on a Plan B for the Baker situation, just in case.
- Are we doing E-Pics? If so... this show needs to get on the road.

- Finalize Menu
- Determine whether centerpieces will need to be bolstered and how.
- Table Names - concept?

Man 'o Man... they just keep comin' don't they?  Sadly I know I've forgotten some stuff from each list, but it's alright, not like there's a shortage of things to do now is there?!?!?!

Stay tuned my darlings, I have a feeling things are about to get interesting!
