Alvin and Some Wedding Planning

I went to Little Rock again this past weekend. Josh was a groomsman in a wedding. He was so gracious to let me skip out on the rehearsal dinner so my mom and I could do some wedding errands. We went to Hobby Lobby and got things for my wedding/guest book (half off...I love that place). Then we went to the mall for a few things. After that we came home and spent a good majority of our time watching Alvin...or Simon...we're not sure which one.

Here's the little chipmunk in the food my mom left outside.

Here he is stuffing his cheeks.

And here he is ready to devour the pile mom set out for him. He should be set for winter!

After we watched Alvin for a while we looked through old pictures. We're trying to get some together for the slide show that will run at our wedding. We aren't going to have one set to music or anything. We're just going to loop one for a little while on one of the receptions walls. If people want to look at it they can and if not they don't have to.

I love this picture!

Saturday we got up and around so we could go do a few things before Josh had to be at the church for pictures. Our goal was to get the suits ordered for the groomsman. I'm really excited about the ones we picked because they were buy one get one FREE!!

After that we dropped Josh off and went to eat and do some more things before I had to get ready for the wedding.

Mom and Dad at Buffalo Grill
The rest of the day mom and dad drove all over Arkansas (well just Searcy and North Little Rock but my sister went to Ft. Smith) to round up enough ties for all the men in the wedding. I found the one I wanted and so we had to get them fast! Josh and I missed out on all that because were at his best friend's wedding.

Isn't he handsome?
Then on Sunday mom and I headed to Paris, AR to meet with Scott, our florist. He is great! We talked with him for 3 HOURS but we got it all settled. It's going to really pretty and I can't WAIT!!!!!!!!
And I'm sure I will have more to report on the wedding front soon. My mom is coming up to Fayetteville today and we're going to spend today and all day tomorrow working on some things! Only 101 days left!

Serah said...

I love that dress, too! Where did you get it?

Megan said...

What a cute little chipmunk. I like the suit/tie idea for Josh and his groomsmen. And I like the dress you wore to his best friend's wedding.

I am laughing at the chipmunk...love him!!!! I want to come watch him stuff his cheeks...

You are so organized with all the wedding stuff...I am so impressed!!

Let me know when you are back in town.

Julie said...

It sounds like you are getting quite a lot done!!! I cannot wait to see some pictures.

OK, so the other day, Jenny asks me what a rat looks like. You can imagine the horror and questions that went through my mind..."Did Annabelle bring something in and leave it, dead, on the kitchen floor...?" "Did she run over a cat and want to make herself believe it was a rat...?"

As luck would have it, it was only a chipmunk she saw frolicking outside the NURSERY windows. Thank God.
