I had my final dress fitting last week, and it will be ready for pick up on the 6th of August. YAY! Obviously I can't post any of my dress pictures, but let's just say that I am completely and utterly in love with it! I'm not sure if ya'll know, but I got my dress at this amazing vintage bridal shop called Recapture in Oakland (who was recently highlighted in A Practical Wedding). Robin (the owner) helped me find one that looked great on me (despite it being a size 4ish)...which was where Eva, the seamstress came in. Eva worked some SERIOUS wonders on the dress (because hey, I'm no size 4!) It looks AMAZING on me, and it fits my personality (and our wedding) perfectly.
I can't wait to wear it in less than 5 weeks! :)

I just realized I haven't posted in a few weeks, which means I've been really, really busy! Since my last post, I've been up to my ears with random stuff, including a week long work trip to Tubac, AZ (see chicken photo), wedding prep (i.e groomsmen outfits, flower girl baskets, and dress fittings), quality family time (i.e. bro's engagement party, art/wine fest with Jean & Eddie, and dinner with Marie and Cadence), and my favorite ladies birthday parties (Jenny = 28 and Erin's dirty 30 party in Bodega). Whew!
...and now it's back to Tubac for another week for work. When I get back, it'll be exactly 1 month 'til our nuptials. Still have the license and rings to get, but otherwise we're looking pretty good!

Wow! The past 2 weeks have flown by and I haven't been able to catch up. Between us moving into a new place (yay!) and our bachelor/ette party, I've barely been able to sleep, let alone blog. Anyhow, here are a few pics from our very debaucherous combined bachelor/ette weekend. We headed up to Camp Lotus last Friday night and (along with our closest 30 friends) had an amazing weekend of rafting/drinking/dancing in the hot summer sun. It was EPIC, that's the only words I can use to describe it!
and ...the countdown begins! Less than 2 months til our wedding!!
