Packing has begun

I leave for my last visit to Texas before the BIG move.  And I am packing for my trip.  On my last trip I packed 2 duffle bags full of things from my desk, things I will not be using so it will be less to haul in December.  So I am packing the 2 duffle bags again so we will be 4 bags lighter :)
This time clothes, which is awesome because it will be so much lighter to carry, holy smokes those papers, desk supplies, and sewing materials were a little heavy.

I leave Wednesday afternoon and with the time differential I will land Wednesday night.  
So far Josh & I don't really have plans, which is crazy for us, I usually have the whole visit planned, and with activities to spare.  
This time I have nothing, Josh actually was the one to suggest an art walk they have First Fridays in CC, TX.  Similar to the one we have in PHX, we went to one once & I really enjoyed it, and he also suggested we go to northern TX and see the Fall Foliage.  

I am also excited bc this visit will be a little longer than my last visit, only Saturday afternoon to Tuesday 4 a.m., I arrive Wednesday afternoon, and leave Tuesday 4 a.m. (not many flights into & out of CC, TX).  
BUT I'll get 3 extra days :) and Josh is taking Friday off so we'll have a 3-day weekend.  

Right now I am just so anxious to leave, don't want to work tomorrow, just want to clean my apartment and sleep. This is exciting because it is the LAST time I'll have to say Good-bye bc next time I see him will be December and I'll get to go home with him BC we're MARRIED :) !!!!

Five Months Engaged

Today Josh & I hit our 5 month engagement mark!
So crazy to think about, already 5 months have flown by and in 71 days I'll be married :)

I have really accomplished a bit lately, got a good bit of the addresses for the invitations, met with Pam and set the times for the ceremony and reception . . . Josh is getting 5 - 7 p.m. I hope it isn't too cold!
I made an appointment to meet with the cake decorator this Saturday after work, and the caterer next Wednesday after work.  I still need to confirm the chairs, the guy & I are playing phone tag right now. . . 
Josh in his sweetest moment told me he thought it through & he thought we should just skip the reception and just have a ceremony and a little bigger luncheon.  
I completely FREAKED out at work, I love that man, I KNOW he meant well, but oh my gosh we can't just not have a reception now.  I've already asked for addresses, already made all these appointments.  He is just so sweet, doesn't want me to be stressed.  
But I told him, it will be awesome, once I reserve the food and chairs, the big things are done and it will be better :) 
And when it is all said & done I am confident that I will be glad we went to all this time and headache to plan this.  So Reception is back on! Yah??
Anyway, I applied for a teller job, not super excited about it, but I need to start applying so it was a good start.  
My Bridal Shower is tentatively set for Dec 14th, a little closer to the wedding than I would have preferred but it will work well with all the schedules.  My girlfriend Kayla is AMAZING and is hosting it.  She is also helping me with the wedding music playlist, and a meal for Josh & I to take after the reception.  Josh keeps scaring me with a camping honeymoon - I told him N.O. 

Still LOTS & LOTS more but the big things will be taken care of.  

I am going to visit Josh October 30th, which is in 20 days.  I am so excited to see him :)
