One Month Away

folks, we are officially one month away from
i am excited and there are lots of things going on.
1. we have finally come to an agreement with the sellers of the South Bend house, and now the house is ours. (MWHAHAhahahaha evil laugh). for that, i'd like to thank H2B for all his hard work and our real estate agent for all the back and forth nonsense.
2. it is Summerfest in Milwaukee...which drinking and music? i know, you're thinking "so, just-another-day-in-milwaukee?" yup. pretty much. but better. and while i have pretty much broken up with Summerfest due to age and the inability to tolerate crowds with a side of drunkeness, strollers and sunburns...i do get incredibly nostalgic about it...and that's how i really want to remember Summerfest. H2B and i *will* be going to see Stevie Wonder on sunday and am truly geeked about that.
3. my last day of work is July 3 (sheds tear). i will be taking the month of July off to do wedding things, pack, have a nervous breakdown, tell the cats we are moving and soak up milwaukee to the fullest. my lovely boss (& friend) bill has given me the opportunity to still do freelance, which i will begin to do in august, so technically...i'm not totally done working.
4. saturday is my bachlorette party. but really, it's a sleepover. with tons of champagne and cupcakes, candy & pizza. and all my favorite girls. perhaps i will do a Photo Montage Friday about it tomorrow.
until the next time...

a bridal first?

i had my first dress fitting this past saturday...and am very happy to announce there are no alterations needed. hooray!!! i feel very lucky. 
now i just need to pick it up the week of the wedding in all of its ivory, fluffy, perfectly steamed, short-dress splendor.
and since it's finally starting to feel like summer around here...the picture above is from F2 images, local photographers from Milwaukee. doesn't this just capture the perfect summer feeling? love it. Visit their etsy store here.
