Music


It’s Leap Year!  Leap Day?  Leap Year Day?!?  I don’t know.  Either way, we’re making up for lost time.  I hope everyone has spectacular plans for their extra day.   For me?  Work and spinning class.  So no, my plans don’t wow, either.  Oh, well.

I haven’t been blogging much lately because, frankly, I don’t know what to blog about.  There have been lots of little things going on with the wedding but little things don’t really make for interesting reading; it’s more like reading through someone’s to-do list.  I really don’t know how to not bore everyone at this point.  But, I said I would update people with our wedding info on this blog, so here goes:

My dress came in the other week so I got to go in and try it on for the first time.  It was pretty big on me, which was kind of a nice feeling, but it made it hard to picture myself in a well-fitting dress.  It shouldn’t be a problem to take in, though, so that’s comforting.

Not me, but I can pretend, right?

We have met with a music group to do the ceremony music, and we’re pretty sure we’ll go with them.   That was the part that was making me worry because it seemed like everyone I called last month was booked.  Not a good feeling.

We’re close to getting all of our babysitters for the wedding.  We just need one more girl.  The other two girls we have babysitting have worked in the church nursery or with Awana for years and have plenty of experience.   If our guests decide they want to bring their children, we know they won’t have anything whatsoever to worry about when leaving their kids in the care of these girls!

Everything else that has been happening are little things (purchasing a cake serving set, figuring out music, etc…)  Not anything people are thrilled to read about 🙂  I hope everyone else has been having a great start to their 2012!

I’ve been crazy busy the last three weeks;  I’ve had to move and travel to Helena & DC for work  so there’s just been no time to post anything lately.   I’ll have to do a quick update of what’s been happening.  My dress came in the other day!  I’ll go into the dress shop Friday to try it on.  I’m a little nervous because it’s a mix of two dresses and I’ve never seen the final product on before.  The ladies at the shop said it’s gorgeous on the hanger, so I’ll have to take their word for it for now.  I’m not going to be posting pictures of it, so really this post is more informative than fun.  Sorry!

We’re also in the process of finding ceremony musicians, which is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be.  It’s not time to panic yet, but I’m starting to sweat it.  Hopefully we’ll find someone good soon.

We’re only 6 months away from the wedding, so things are starting to get rolling.  We’ve received the invitations and they look fabulous! Those will get sent out in a few months.  The guys’ suits are all picked out, but we’ll have to go in and put something together for our dads.  We have an appointment with the flower lady in a few weeks, and after that I think most of the wedding planning will be in the details (figuring out the timeline, picking out songs, confirming addresses, etc…).  Super exciting, huh?   I hope August gets here quickly!

We have music!  The good stuff.  Here’s a little sample:

Tom Catmull and the Clerics are a band from my former town, Missoula.  They play what they call “unpopular country” and are just all around fun people.  My friends and I may or may not have had a small obsession with going to their shows when we were in college. There’s nothing better than great music and two stepping/swing dancing with good people.

Bottom line – if you like fun, you’ll like these guys.
