Plans are well underway and it has been exciting to watch as everything comes together for the big day on the 23rd of next month. Here's the weekend run-down:

Thursday, with the help of my dear friend and her way-too-nice-and-letterpress-owning compadre, we pressed all 600 invites in just a few hours. It was so incredible to be part of the process and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Now if I could just finish up gathering addresses . . .

Friday I donned the cloak of motherhood for about 32 hours while Kimiker flew to Hawaii with the rest of Dad's side's adults. (When do I get to be considered an adult? Honestly. . .) Her kids were darling, but it didn't take long for me to wonder how in heaven's name mom's do it. After about 25 minutes of shooting the nerf gun at the fridge and trying to convice Chowie to stop kicking Sweetie-J while balancing Mo-sterous on my hip, I was ready for them all to just take a nap already.

Yeah right.

That night BrightBoy and I got the kids ready for bed and he put the Mo-sterous to sleep while I put Dora on for the others. We passed the chillin's off to OlderAndWiserToo and went out for the night to some of our favorite places. After we settled down to watch this. I stayed awake for most of it which was a serious feat. I really think I have a disorder.

Saturday morning Sweetie-J was up at 5 completely confused about where she was. She crawled in my bed and I sang her to sleep so I could get a few more hours of much-needed shut eye and she stayed there until Mo-sterous woke us up around 8. We did the morning cartoon thing and played for a bit in the morning before I got ready and headed out to AF with Mogli for his cello performance. Can I just say that holding a baby on your hip while trying to put mascara on, and keeping the baby far enough away from the mascara wand so that you and she doesn't end up with black all over her is a trick. That I've mastered. Already.

BrightBoy and I spent the afternoon with this lovely lovely taking these. We absolutely love them and have so many we're excited about. It made me even more about bridals and groomals coming up here in a few weeks. Craziness. Here's a few for the 'rents to chew on until we can go through all 391! They're still unphotoshopped so capture(d) is probably going nuts. But trust me, she's a genius.

Paige you are gorgeous. I said that to you even before I met you, and I can definitely still say that to this day. You have no idea how much I love you and how happy I am for you and Mike. You are such a great example to me and I want the best for you. I can't wait to see you on your special day and celebrate the night away. This time of life is so exciting :)

I love the pictures! They are really great. I'm glad the plans are coming along, and sorry we will not be there to celebrate with you. Oh, are you registered somewhere? I still need to get Katie and Vince their gift too!
