check,check!

Maybe I’m a terrible bride since I didn’t commemorate my 1 year down to the Wedding day. Don’t think August 20 passed us by this year, oh we noticed and talked about how fast time is already moving.

359 days until I get married to my wonderful fiance. So there.. the countdown begins less than a year and I will be a married woman.

1 year out and I am feeling very good about where we are in terms of planning.
Accomplished:
Ceremony Site- booked
Reception Site- booked
Colors – chosen
Photographer- booked this past weekend! YES!

Up Next:
Save the Dates- in progress (hopefully mailed before Thanksgiving)
Centerpiece Proto-types
Find a DJ

26

Happy Birthday to my loving fiance 🙂 We celebrated this past weekend since his birthday is on a Wednesday, he lives in Muncie and I live in Indy…makes things complicated. I schemed behind his back with my parents and his parents to get future hubby a new computer! Woot Woot! It’s small and light and easy to take to Starbucks, or Panera or pack up for a weekend in Indy. I love you babe! Happy Birthday!

from your closet to mine

It has become a family tradition at the Sellke Family Reunion to have a white elephant gift exchange. The gifts range from ceramic bunnies to unwanted golf gear. This year guess what I took home in the white elephant? A Cuisinart bread machine! I was so excited that I got this stainless steel puppy.

I had visions of all the delicious breads Ryan and I would make. I mean it’s one less thing to register for right? (and in case you didn’t know they can be kinda pricey too)

let me tell you a secret…bread machines are intimidating. with our bread machine we were gifted some recipe books and it’s  intense for someone who does not cook often/at all. I always wondered why I see shelves full of bread machines at the local goodwill, I guess I just assumed they were broken. Well now I think it may be due to the fact that they are scary.

So in my pantry the bread machine sits, until the day I conquer my fear.
