Life in Fast-Forward

Well it has been over a week since I last posted. Currently I am away in the middle of the woods (seriously) at a work retreat. I have no cell phone service (GASP!) but luckily we do have Internet - I don't really understand that oxymoron but I will take it! So now that I am nestled away in the woods I have found some time to blog!

With less than 3 weeks left till the wedding everybody keeps asking me: "So is everything done for the wedding"? Well the answer to that is a big fat NO! Not only is everything not done yet, but for some reason time has picked up speed and the days are shorter and the weeks go by much faster! My life is in double time right now!

Last week Luke moved into our apartment, our furniture was delivered two days later and we have been in the process of getting everything together. Every time I go over there I try to take a load of stuff from my room. OK, let me tell you: My stuff more than DOUBLED. I had no idea just how much 'stuff' I have. We are currently trying to squeeze all of our piles of 'stuff' into a two bedroom apartment. I will let you know how it turns out!

Now that we are in the last couple of weeks of the wedding planning I have been making a lot of trips home to get the finals plans taken care of. Planning long distance is starting to prove a little difficult - but I enjoy the trip home. Every time I go home I get to see this cute little guy:
O yeah and I get to see the rest of my family also!

Here are some pictures of our mess, also known as our apartment (pre-furniture):

This picture looks staged. Its not. Believe me, Luke would NEVER pose for a picture. This my friends, is a full action shot...

So there it is. That is my past week - pretty boring but definitely busy.
Time for me to go to bed. Our conference starts at 7:00 in the morning. I'm going to look it up on the Internet. I'm pretty sure starting anything before 8:00 is illegal.

Also, thank you to all of you who have been praying for us during this season. I have definitely felt those prayers lately. Even though everything has picked up speed, lately I have had much more peace and been much more calm about things. Instead of being filled with such anxiety I have been filled with such excitement to get married to Luke and share my life with him. I know exactly where this peace and excitement comes from!
So thanks to everyone for your prayers.

I was just thinking to myself last night what you were up to since you haven't posted in a few days. Glad to know you're ok and not panicked about the wedding that is soon approaching!

Glad to see you check in! I'm praying for you. Have fun at your conference.

Well gosh, it's about time! Just kidding ;) I can't believe you're even finding time to blog in the midst of your wedding planning. I'll be praying for loose ends to be tied up and for setting up your new apartment. That is all VERY exciting!!!

Oh the joys of moving!!! I remeber thinking I had way more than I thought too :)
I'll be praying for you!

You'll have to post some pics of the new furniture when you get settled in. How fun!

There's just so much to do for a wedding! Nobody really knows until they plan one. It'll be nice to have your apartment pretty much set up though.
Keep us posted. I am keeping you in my prayers.

I'm jealous! You're stuck in the woods and can blog. Wouldn't that be just perfect (except for the 7:00 am part).

I do not envy your moving!! YUCK YUCK YUCK!!!
