Its Official!

Well its official, I am now Mrs. Szibel. Haha that sounds weird. We now have copies of our marriage license, my name is changed with Social Security and our bank. Now I just have to get a new license (mine expires next week anyway so that was perfect timing!). Along with taking care of paper work, we have been going thru the pictures people took with the cameras at the tables. While most of them didn't turn out, there are some that are very cute. I should be getting the pics from Marc (the photographer) hopefully today. He emailed me yesterday to let me know they went out in yesterdays mail. I'm pretty excited to see them!!! Soooooo....I'm working on putting a bunch together on a site called Shutterfly. When I'm done I'll be able to share them with everyone. You will also be able to order prints directly thru the site if you choose. Anyways, just thought I would give you an update and let you know that the Szibel Family is doing great! Have a great day....and take a minute to remember all those that died in the 9/11 attacks. Love ya!

Here Comes the Bride and Groom (and the Harleys too)!

Well here we are already at the big day. Its hard to believe it came up so fast!! I'm sure it will go by just as quickly too. We keep getting asked if we are nervous or getting cold feet. Nope, neither of those apply to us. We are excited though! I know nothing is perfect and I'm sure there will be a few glitches throughout the day and that is perfectly ok with me. I am letting go of my control freakness for the day and am just going to enjoy whatever happens. With that said, I'm off to finish drying my hair, then I'm going for lunch with Staci and then we are meeting my mom and sisters at the salon to get our hairs did. For those of you who are coming, we will see you later! For those who aren't, well I will post pictures after I get them. As Jess used to say "Enjoy the day God has given you." Love ya!!!

Getting Closer

Good Morning!! Well, we are quickly approaching the big day. Thank you for sending your rsvp cards back!! Now I can work on the final details. The last couple weeks have been busy of course. There were meetings with the DJ (should be playing some good music so bring your dancing shoes!) and the florist (possibly my favorite person right now-she is awesome!), then the programs needed to get worked on, snack bowls had to be aquired (thank you to WSM for offering to take care of that for me!!!!), cameras needed to be ordered, and we needed to search for birth certificates. My to do list is finally starting to is a great feeling. Now I can start getting excited about the wedding itself. Yay! Have a great Monday!!

Happy Monday! Not sure about you, but I had a fantastic weekend! Friday was a busy day...minus running late and a spilled glass of oj it went well. We had a meeting at the Rotunda....I thought I was all organized and prepared, but they caught me off guard with a few questions. Luckily, my Dad and Colleen were there to help with that. Later in the day, I stopped to see Aunt Doris for a bit while I picked up a package and then Staci and I were off to our dress fittings. Staci's is done and looks spectacular....although hanging in the bag it looks as if its made for a child...haha. Mine needs a couple minor things and it will be good to go. Saturday was a busy day too. Bill and I went to take his uniform to get hemmed, and then he stopped for a haircut and then we went for lunch. We went home and relaxed for a bit before it was time for him to get ready to head out on Sunday morning. Sunday was the shower. It turned out great! Aunt Doris, Aunt Annie, and Staci did an amazing job!! Thank you!!! The best part was I didn't have to do a darn thing!! I'm glad so many people were able to make it. The only downfall was I didn't get a chance to really talk to everyone as much as I would have liked. I have a feeling the wedding will be the same way. I got so many nice gifts and had a great time. Thank you to everyone who was able to come! And for those of you who couldn't, I'm sorry you couldn't make it but we still thought of you. Especially Jen whose gift was taped obnoxiously with packing tape!!!! Thank you all for a great time!!!

Its been awhile!

Don't worry, I have not forgot about you. I haven't had too much to update on unless you would like me to bore you with my to do list. Let's see what is new here. The next few days will be busy busy busy. Friday I have a breakfast date, then I'm off to have my makeup trial. Then WSM (Colleen-my wicked stepmother hence the wsm) and I have a walk thru at The Rotunda. After that I have my hair trial and I need to pick up a something from the Great Aunt Doris before I dash off to my dress fitting with Staci. Saturday I will be spending the day with Mr. Bill. He is leaving me on Sunday to go to Hawaii for work....rough job but someone's got to do it! Then Sunday is the Shower. Should be a good time. I'm excited to see everyone, but can't believe its here already. That is all that is new here for today. I hope you are having a fantastic week so far. See you Sunday!! Love ya!

Oh So Pretty

Yesterday was quite a day. My dress came in last week so yesterday Staci and I went to pick it up! It was perfect! Definitely glad I went with the one I did (took me long enough to make the decision). Right after that we went to Caron's Bridal Alterations. She was very nice! So we both got our dresses pinned the way we wanted which made us very happy. Staci's dress looks really good on her when it fits...amazing how that works. I made her try on her dress with her shoes after the length was the way we wanted....they look fabulous...and were under $30! We have our 2nd fittings in a couple weeks. I'm happy cuz it ends up being the same day as my hair and makeup trials. That's it for today so I'm off to browse ebay for a brooch. Happy Friday!

"Weekend in Waukesha"

This morning I was looking for some info on Harley Fest (known as Weekend in Waukesha) to see what new developments have been made. Turns out they have a website of their own. If you are spending the weekend in town and are looking for something to do you could always check it out....can't beat the! If you look at their entertainment page, you will see the lineup for the weekend which includes a "surprise country headliner" and a "surprise rock headliner." Based on some other info I found, the surprise guests are rumored to be Montgomery Gentry and The Bodeens. Here is their website if you are interested.
