The Countdown Has Really Begun!

Jeff and I drove from San Diego to Littleton on Wednesday. 18 hours in the car is always an adventure and we were very thankful that the roads weren't as bad (snow/ice/poor visibility/etc) as they were predicted to be because driving through the Rocky Mountains at 10pm in a blizzard is never fun. Trust me, I've done it. 

And over the last few days we've been running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to get everything finished for both Christmas and the wedding. I cannot believe that Christmas is in 3 days and our wedding is ONE WEEK from today!

Jeff is off in the woods having "mountain man time" with his groomsmen and some other awesome guys for his bachelor party this weekend and I'm here in town constantly working on something. Here's a bit of what the last few days have consisted of. 


+ Instagram hashtag for the wedding!
+ Middle of nowhere Utah and a gorgeous sunset
+ Our monogramed aisle runner I made last night
+ A Christmas tradition of chocolate dipped pretzels

We've also:
+ Ordered our cutting cake
+ Picked up tons of vases and glassware for our centerpieces
+ Got our marriage license
+ Had my final dress fitting with all the accessories
+ Made decorations for the aisle chairs at the ceremony
+ Finished all our Christmas shopping
+ Wrapped all wedding party gifts
+ Sent in our final wedding counts to the caterer
+ Made the final seating chart that Jeff just needs to approve

There are still tons of other smaller things to take care of at some point between now and either Christmas or the wedding but I'm very happy with all we've been able to get done so far. Plus the week after Christmas is going to be filled with festivities like my bachelorette party, trial hair appointment and rehearsal. I apologize if there's not much updating going on around here in the next week or so but I'm sure you understand! 

And you can always follow me on Instagram @jaymeeryn and search our hashtag too!

Merry Christmas to everyone.
