I'll Love You Tomorrow

This past month has been a complete blur! After finishing up the semester, I came home and helped get Kyle all packed to move. We moved all of his stuff up to Gainesville the weekend before Christmas and had a great time arranging everything the way we wanted it.

 The next week was pretty stressful trying to get all of the last minute Christmas things done plus Wedding activities. Christmas was even crazier than normal. We've celebrated Christmas with both families for years now, but with Sunday being Christmas everyone's schedule were off. We ended up having to do a lot of things at different times than normal and it was much harder on us than any previous year. Also, neither of our families have ever really had to "share" holidays before, so they don't like that we're not with our family the whole time. We did get this awesome plaque from FSIL for our house!

These past two weeks, Kyle was working trying to make some extra money. I'm so thankful that he thinks about things like that and wants to make sure that we'll be okay starting out. Unfortunately, it kept him from being around much before the wedding and my stress level hit the roof. I really don't like getting upset with people and this whole week I've felt like every detail ended up as a battle. I'll be so thankful when there are no more details to worry about. I feel like all of the details are done, and yet every time I turn around my mom has this whole list of things I just don't think matter. It's been highly frustrating!

Only 1 more day!!!!

And I Need You More Than Ever

I officially finished my internship on Friday and I can't believe how much I miss being there already! We didn't tell any of the kids that I was leaving until Friday and I'm glad we didn't. I was completely the topic of conversation for the whole day. My teacher also announced to them that I was getting married and so the next time they saw me I'd have a different last name. One little boy kept walking around going, "You can't do it, you can't do it Ms. Davis!" When I asked him what he was talking about he said I couldn't get married. He also asked me if "When you get married do you get to hug?" When I told him yes he said, "That's what I thought." Way too precious!!

I have definitely been blessed with having a pretty stress free wedding planning experience. Sadly, that wonderful time has seemed to disappear! I always thought that the hardest part was going to be planning the wedding along with doing my full time internship and taking a class. While there were some times when I was frustrated by it, I didn't have very many problems. Ever since Thanksgiving everything seems to be coming at me full force! I didn't think through the fact that I would be finishing my internship/class, Kyle would have finals, we would be trying to move Kyle up, celebrate the holidays, and finish all the last minute wedding details in the final month. We will be so glad when the wedding is here and we don't have to be thinking about all the last minute details! With Christmas almost here, I know that the wedding will be here before we know it!
