326 Days & Counting!

It is absolutely crazy how fast time is going!  I can't believe we are down to about 10.5 months till our big day!  Since I last posted it's like I blinked and time flew by.  I've also started our "wedding" website and you can check out all things wedding by going to Ashley & Adam

I've only been home 1 week out of the last 4 so I haven't made as much progress as I should have on our wedding plans but I have lots of ideas swirling in my head.  My parents did come down for a quick visit this past weekend and mom and I went to a bridal show in Chattanooga.  It wasn't very large but I did meet with a couple vendors that I want to follow up with more (videographer, DJ/speciality lighting and florist).  I also made 3 appointments to try on gowns at some local boutiques in the coming weeks.  Also... I tried on dresses for the first time!  Saturday morning mom and I had an appointment with my wedding coordinator who also runs a linen business so I wanted mom to see everything she had available.. then we ran by Hobby Lobby because I've decided I want to make our invitations.. (why pay someone to do something that I love to do?!).. and then... I decided to run into a bridal store to see the colors they have available for bridesmaids and the bridal gowns were calling to me.  They carry the line that I really like - Maggie Sottero - so I decided to bite the bullet and try on a few.  The third dress I put on I think could possibly be THE dress.  It even fit perfect... meaning.. no alterations!! I've never bought a speciality dress that didn't need something altered!  Maybe it's a sign.. I'm not ready to "say YES to the dress" quite yet though. 

Adam and & I spent 8 days in Michigan over the 4th of July.  It was BLAZING hot.  We had a lot of fun and I came back with an awesome tan.  Our baby boy also swam in the pool for the first time!  Cutest thing ever!  We ordered him a life jacket for next year because he seems a little bottom heavy, funny thing is, he can stand up on his back legs in the shallow end and he's like my height!  Some of the most exciting news that we've known for a few weeks now but couldn't share is that his sister Ashleigh & her husband Drew are expecting their first baby in January!  We are really excited for them and they will make wonderful parents!

I've got lots of pictures from Michigan just haven't uploaded them yet - here's some from my iPhone:

As you can tell, our baby boy LOVES spending time at his grandparent's house.
