Less then one month left

Life has been busy.
 I started a new job 3 weeks ago and I now have to commute to work.
 It's been pretty stressful for me. The past few years I've lived so close to work. I was spoiled and now I have to drive 1 hour to get to work. It's been hard but so far I really like my new co-workers and job. I've had less time to work on anything wedding related. That has been one of my biggest challenges. Finding time to do wedding stuff! Today during my lunch break I worked on favors :)  I will say that I LOVE my iPhone or diPhone as I like to call it. I can check my e-mail and search for anything I need. Thank you JR for buying me my first diPhone. I'm addicted and I don't know what I would do with out it.  
Since the last time I blogged I am happy to announce that we finally finished the invitations. We have amazing friends!! They came over one night to help us put them together and it was such a huge help. I've learned that I am horrible at asking for help. I always feel so bad. I don't want to bother anyone or burden them in any way so I was just doing things by myself or with the help of JR. One Sunday our friend B offered to help us and recruited other friends to come over and help us. It was all done in about 2 hours. It was awesome!  Advice to all the Brides reading this....
Just ask for help.
 Ask me :) 
I really do love  helping with wedding and
 I would be more then happy to help out. 

 I would like to take the chance to apologize to those we were not able to invite. It was so hard figuring out our guest list. We had limited seating available at our venue and a tight budget. We do thank you for the continued support that everyone has given us and ask that you continue to support us.  
Please don't think that we don't value your friendship because we truly do.

Another big thing that has happened is WE FOUND A PLACE!!! I'm so excited! I move in about 2 weeks and JR will be moving in right after we get married. I can't wait to get things inside the house and getting it all organized and decorated. JR has started getting some things ready. He has a dresser and shelf he is currently staining so it looks nice in our new place :) 

 This is the Before and I'll post the after on my next post if he is finished with it. 

In other great news..... MOM is here :)
She flew in last week and has been staying with my sister
 She is happy to be here. She gets to see her cute grandchildren. 
My nephew was born last year and she never got the chance to meet him so that was nice that she gets to hold and cuddle with him now. 
He is such a cute baby!!  
All of my nieces and nephews are cute. My 2 adorable nieces are our flower girls and they LOVE the flower girl dresses they are so excitied that they are going to get to wear them at Tia's wedding :)  
If you ask  Lou Lou, my niece, what we are celebrating she will tell you 
"Tia's wedding"
 She also thinks every single bridal magazine and wedding dress is Tia's. 
Soon I will get to have 2 more nephews!! JR has 2 nephews now and they are so great! We really love them and enjoy spending time with them.

Well I have a busy weekend ahead of me. My bridal shower is tomorrow morning and I'm so excited. It's finally starting to hit me. I'm getting married!! I was telling my bridesmaids how It still hasn't really hit me that I'm getting married but I think by tomorrow morning it will all become real to me :)
I can't wait to become Mrs. R 


  1. love and miss you diane! we got to have dinner with the higa's and it brought back so much memories! please send my love to your parents as i miss them as well. you'll have to give me both yours and their address so i can write you all while on my mission! congrats on your big day! wish i could be there! loveyou!

  2. Asking for help is soooo hard! I totally feel you - we finally broke down and did without guilt (and after a few RS lessons that felt a little too personal towards me and my fear of asking for help) and we also hosted a ton of people at our house every weekend to make a million tissue Martha Stewart poms. Hahahaha - hey, the memories are forever and now most people know how to make one hehehe. So excited for you! Can't wait to see photossss!!!

  3. Can I see one of your wedding invitations? They sound awesome.
