Yesterday Brandon and I went to look at wedding bands and we found the perfect ones! We tried on lots of different styles and looked at many cases and narrowed it down to our favorite few. Brandon was much more specific than I ever thought he'd be. He kept saying, "I'm going to wear it for the rest of my life, I want something good." He ended up getting an amazing band that he is extremely happy with. As for me, it was a little easier for me to pick one out because it had to match my gorgeous engagement ring. I definintely wanted sparkle and in the end, thats what I got! I got a beautiful band that brings out the beautiful diamonds in my engagement ring. After all the sizing was finished we left the two bands and my engagement ring there for them to work on. On my way to work today I picked them up and I was so excited! They turned out amazing and I tried mine on right away! I was also really happy to have my engagement ring back because even though they only had it for a day I really missed it. So now the bands are tucked away in their beautiful velvet boxes and we are just anxiously waiting for the day until we can place them on each others finger.

Our new home

So, Brandon and I had no luck finding a house before we got married. We could only push things so far and because of that we decided to lease an apartment for a very short time. We found a very afforable apartment in Corona that will give us the opportunity to contiune to save money. My favorite part about our new place is the washer and dryer in the apartment! It's going to be such a treat for me. We also love that we are surrounded by mostly residential so we feel its going to be very quiet. We were concerned, however, about entertainment. We took another drive around the area and it really is mostly residential. Entertainment to us is a shopping center or movie theater. I also didn't see a Target close by which bummed me out. But, we have to look at this as the best decision for us and the best way to save money.

Old Friends...

Yesterday I woke up planning to finish registering at Bed Bath and Beyond. What I didn't know was my friend, Karissa, who I haven't spoken to in awhile was planning on doing the exact same thing. She actually stopped by On The Border and we planned to meet up with each other at Bed Bath and Beyond later. Once we got our scanners we didn't waste any time trying to figure out what we needed to start our lives with our future hubby's. We had such a fun time trying to figure out our color schemes and it was really nice to have a second opinion when we started to second guess ourselves. We started getting really tired and hungry so we threw in the scanners and headed off to Pat and Oscars. We sat and talked for hours! They closed the place up and we were still talking so we moved outside. It was so nice to catch up with her and to discuss all the wedding plans we have going on. I really missed her and I'm so glad we got back in touch!

They arrived!

The invitations have arrived! My dad took a trip over to the Wedgewood Banquet Center to pick them up. While he was there he called me and said he was standing in the spot that Brandon and I are going to get married. It was the first time he had seen the place and he was thrilled with the venue. I was so happy! The invitations turned out better than we could have expected we cannot wait to send them out to our family and friends. There were also other surprises in the box as well. Our engraved champagne glasses and our personalized cocktail napkins. Seeing all this stuff has made us so much more excited to get to the day!
