I'm Bad At This....I'm Sorry....

Well, ever since my joy ride into adulthood began a little of a month ago with my job, I've found less and less time to update the blog.  Please accept my apologies.  :)

Here's the latest in my Terkelsen in Training life:

1.  We had to change the reception venue to a rise in cost.  Apparently the fine print stated that prices were subject to change without notification.  The price went up to more than I felt the place was worth so my mom and the wedding planner (the amazing Pam Hill) found a new place:  The Bass Hall!  It's way cooler than the other place and it's cheaper.  I'd say it's a bargain....and I loveeee me a bargain.

Yep...that's the place.  AND!  Jacob and I get to leave the reception in a horse drawn carriage.  I was immediately sold on this....Jacob- not so much.  

2.  I picked my bridesmaids dresses a couple of weekends ago.  I was lucky to have all of my bridesmaids together for this special weekend!  We talked about the next time we'd all be together for sure would be at the wedding! I found "the one" dress at the first stop but needed to make it settled in my own mind that I had exhausted all options so we went looking at another place.  Naturally, I found one I liked there too.  Naturally.  So, I needed to go to another place to settle my mind.  Luckily nothing at the 3rd place was any sort of options.   Here's a picture of my beauties and their dresses:  (Like said on Facebook, right now they look like a bag of Wildberry Skittles, but rest assured they'll all be in the dark purple color in December)

3.  Jacob and I completed 2 of our 3 registries last weekend.  Jacob claimed we spent 5 hours in Bed Bath & Beyond, but actually we only spent 4.  I can honestly say I've never been that overwhelmed in a store ever.  It's a big deal to be picking out stuff that you'll have for the upcoming future.  Big deal.  No pressure.  Our Bridal consultant guy was a hoot.  He literally followed us around the entire store commenting on certain items and how much he recommends them.  I'm sure I'd recommend a $600 set of pots too if  my job depended on it.  ;)  By the end of it all, we had 14 pages worth of items and we still didn't get everything we had thought of.  After we left BB&B, Jacob needed to go home and take a breather.  I convinced him to let me start at Target without him.  It was across the street so why waste a trip?!  Jacob re-joined me about 45 minutes later and we finished the Target registry relatively quickly.  Jacob even scanned a Nerf Gun.  :)

Next big thing on the wedding planning list is the cake.  :)  I'm uber pumped about the cake and so is Jacob.

  1. I'm definintly going to be using Mrs Pam Hill too! Wedding planning is just to much to do on your own! Love love love the Bass Hall/horse drawn carriage idea. Fort Worth is my fav.
