The best thing about this weekend (besides getting to see Aaron of course!) is that we have our FIRST wedding shower! The shower is Sunday at 2 p.m. at Aaron's church, Sharon Missionary Baptist Church in Benton. I can't wait to see everyone and celebrate this exciting time! I'll post pictures from the shower next week along with a few "Thank You Tuesdays!" So, if you're at the shower, don't be surprised if you're mentioned on the blog!
Also.....the countdown continues!

Can you believe it? Its so hard to believe that it was 5 1/2 months ago when we got engaged! Only 3 1/2 months left to go! We are sooooooo ready and everything left to do with the wedding is only minor details! I'm going to completely soak up the next 100 days because once the wedding planning is over, its over! (And its so much fun!) I'm sure time will fly by!
And just so you know...it is killing me to have these invitations in my possession and not show EVERYONE!

Sarah Hobart and I met up today at Starbucks because...our invitations were ready!!! They are gorgeous! The thank you cards, wedding invitations, and rehearsal dinner invitations were all finished. I was so excited to finally see them in person! I would show you what they look like, but, come on....you know you will have to wait! Once they are mailed out to everyone I will post an image for you all to see. I am sooo pleased with Sarah's work!
P.S. Aaron and I spent last weekend in Fayetteville. His Aunt Amy was in from Mississippi to visit and go to the Razorback baseball series. His mom and some of his grandparents were also able to come up, which was wonderful! It was such a great time! We love getting to spend time with everyone since we don't get to see them very often. The series was pretty terrible (the hogs lost the first two games and the third was on Easter and was rained out.) But all in all we had a great time visiting and catching up! It was great seeing you Amy!

Desserts!!! We are getting married on a Friday night at 7 p.m. and I just LOVED the idea of having a Dessert Reception! It sounded like such a fun, modern twist on the usual "Light Hors'devours Receptions." Most people do that type of reception and I just wanted to do something different! Between the three of us, we came up with some great desserts and beautiful ways to display them or dish them. Our dessert buffet will be approximately three tables long. Much larger than the one pictured above! Our table set up will be more detailed, too! Its going to be beautiful!
Each dessert was chosen for its taste, visual appearance, and color. Yes, color! Everything will coincide with the color scheme of our wedding! Amazing, right??? I can't wait to see how the tables will look! But, don't worry...we have included some salty treats, too!
Another idea I knew I just HAD to make happen to go along with the "Dessert Reception" idea was a......Candy Buffet! That's right! Make sure to bring the kiddies because they will love it! Here's the idea:
