Stuffing Envelopes

So basically the only thing I've done in the past week for the wedding is stuff envelopes.  I haven't addressed anything because I still need tons of addresses and I haven't ordered return address labels because I'm not sure where we will be living at that point.  If I get into Polk State for nursing school and I don't get in anywhere else, we're going to have to move down toward Celebration or Kissimmee so it doesn't take me an hour and a half to get to school.  It wouldn't be a big deal because Casey's school is down that way so it wouldn't be any longer for him.  If I get into Daytona State, then we need to stay here because it's right in the center of both of our schools.  If I get into Florida Hospital College, we will probably stay where we are out of convenience.  So I haven't been able to do as much as I would like but I have 507 days until the wedding so I think I'm ok.

So I decided to do SOMETHING wedding related so I got envelopes for the Save the dates, invites, and RSVPs.  I ordered them from and paid $83 for about 600 envelopes.  They're nice metallic ones in lilac.  So my wedding invitation budget was $200 and I spent $138!  I went over $35 on the save the dates but considering how much I saved on the other stuff, I'm still way under budget.  Same thing for our wedding bands.  I'll probably wind up putting that money towards decor (flowers, etc) or saving it for the honeymoon.  Yay for being a budget bride!

No news here

No news on the wedding front.  I haven't had time to really do anything with school and nursing applications on my mind.  I need to order envelopes for the save the dates and wedding invites but other than that, I don't have anything else planned.  I started Weight Watchers again and I'm doing the new points plus program.  It's been pretty easy to stick to actually so I'm hoping to reach my goal of 45 lbs by December.  Then I can start looking for dresses.  Other than that, nothing to report.
