Too Ambitious?

Somehow I ended up adding something very odd to my bucket list. I want to run a marathon. Yes, me who only started to seriously exercise in the past couple of years. I don't think I can run a full marathon, it's over 26 miles! My goal is for a half marathon. Maybe Disneyland's half marathon? Nothing like running through the happiest place on earth to keep your spirits high. :) Dearest wants to find one that's a month or so before the wedding so we can use the training to whip us into shape for the wedding as well. Two birds with one stone sort of plan. I think he's nuts. :)

Waiting Game...

At this point, the wedding has now become a waiting game. I just booked the florist, which was the last of the vendors to nail down. The next thing on our list of things to do is to taste the food and decide on the menu... which doesn't happen until January. In the meantime, I'm still working on our invitations. It's a ton of stamping, but I still have quite a while before they need to be done.

Other than that, we're gearing up for the holiday season. I busted out the Christmas music a couple weeks ago. :) We're planning on hosting a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, so that'll be tons of fun. And of course the Christmas tree and shopping for gifts!

Wedding Update

A few updates with the wedding- we booked our DJ! They always say, the music can make or break a wedding... so we went with a well known and highly rated company. Their customer service thus far has been amazing! We couldn't make it out to their showcase of DJs, so they mailed us a DVD recording to watch with a bag of popcorn! Very nice touch. Dearest and I are still, well I should say Dearest, is still deciding on our music. He has an idea for our first dance, but we'll see. :)

Aloha honeymoon! We're going to Hawaii for our honeymoon! Sadly our road trip wasn't feasible (too many days to take off, etc). Dearest has never been to Hawaii, so he's really excited. I'm sure we'll have a great time kayaking, snorkeling and hiking. Oh, and eating delicious food! MMmmm I can taste the fresh fish already...
