59 days until the wedding!!!!! So, excited!

I am getting so excited about our honeymoon.  I'm pretty sure I can vouch for Kris and say the same.  Its getting to the point where if we are going to make reservations for places to eat delicious things, now is the time.  When Camellia Inn emailed me our confirmation, they also emailed me restaurants within walking distance, and other fun things to do.  Kris and I decided that since it is a special occasion, and you only go on your honeymoon once, we are going to go the high-end Cyrus Restaurant, and go all out and get the eight-course meal.  I'm looking forward to getting all dressed up and going there.  If you are interested here are some of the other places I think we will hit up, I'm also looking forward to checking out the farmer's market for some goodies as well.

Barndiva    I'm thinking maybe a brunch here, looks good!
Zin    Pretty sure we'll go to this once just because its named after wine.
Willi's Seafood   This one looks fun, plus you have to get seafood anytime your out of Oklahoma.
Dry Creek Kitchen  
Cena Luna  
Bistro Ralph  

Yesterday my bridesmaid dresses came in!!!! They look really pretty, but now its time for alterations.  I'm not recommending the lady who did my wedding dress since it took her two times to get it right.  I have been looking for a good tailor in the area and Hanna at Alteration Station got great recommendations, so I'm going to take some pants and Stacey's dress there and check her out.

Its coming down to the wire, we still have some little things to do...

This Friday we'll meet with The Sand Plum for some last minute decisions.
On the 9th we're going to Norman for a special Science Friday show, while we are in Norman, we'll go to Cellar Wine & Spirits and get an estimate on beer/wine for the wedding.  And, hit up Forward Foods to decide on some cheese for the wedding.

Kris is finally going to go look at tuxes today too.

flowers in her hair

Twelve Oaks does have our date open so we snatched them up and our rehearsal dinner will be there.  It was really nice, and I'm glad that is one more thing out of the way.

This Saturday, I'm going to the Sand Plum for some final details and then my cake tasting to see what Monica has created.  After that in the afternoon, I am going to go shop for a hot pink wig for my bachlorette party.  The theme will be party wigs.  Most of my bridesmaids will be shopping for party wigs too.  It will be a lot of fun.

I thought about trying to make a flower for my hair, then I saw these by Twigs & Honey, and couldn't resist.  I ordered the Idanha in ivory for my hair.  No veil for me, I tried a veil on at the bridal shop and liked it, but I would only be wearing it down the isle, so I felt like it was a waste.  A flower I would wear all night, and its super cute.

Rehearsal Dinner

Went to Twelve Oaks last night to try it out in hopes of using it for our rehearsal dinner.  It was really neat, set in the country between Guthrie and Edmond in an old house.  I think it will be perfect since our wedding will be in an old hotel.  Cross your fingers they have the date we need open!

Also, for the first time because my maid of honor Ande was heckling me, I am watching Gone with the Wind.  The place in Gone with the Wind is called Twelve Oaks! Fate?  Hopefully!
