There is a lot to do between now and then though, so I probably should be focusing on that instead of what's happening 10 days from now. Eddie and I are meeting tonight to do organize our to-do lists and figure out our schedules for the next week and a half! We don't want to miss anything and are trying to be as organized as we can.
The one uncontrolable is the weather. We're still hoping that it might clear up and be gorgeous for us. I actually don't even care if it's sunny, I just don't want it to be rainy and wet! I am forbidding myself to look at the weather reports again until Saturday (there's no hope of them being correct 1 day in advance so I'm not going to start looking now).
Until next time!

Anyway, they're on their way out the door with super awesome postage because of their "oversized-ness" and the only extra postage they had was an awesome looking ram. It's glorious and gets the job done! :)
Now we just have to cross off all the other things on the list, but at least a big one is done!

My ring on my hand after Eddie proposed in Paris.
Eddie was a bit quicker in picking out his wedding band. We decided to go with a basic titanium band with beveled edges. It's pretty sleek and cool looking and very "Eddie." When we were looking for the rings we both gravitated toward the same one so we knew it must be the right "one" for him. It was a pretty simple process for him and not to mention a lot cheaper than the process of getting my rings. Eddie likes to tell me that I have it easy when it comes to buying his ring. Eithe way, I'm excited to see BOTH of the finished products!
I'm also quite anxious to have my engagement ring back. It feels so strange not to be wearing it.

I came home to Eddie's dog, Daphne, eagerly waiting for her dinner and to be let out to use the bathroom. Eddie was down in Nevada for the week helping my aunt and uncle with a motocross race. Daphne and I did pretty good for our first real one-on-one adventure together, which is a lot to say for me. As some of you may know, I am not really an animal person, let alone a dog person, so the week had it's challenges, but she and I both survived. Eddie has since reclaimed her and I now only have a few more weeks of freedom until I officially gain this furry little roommate.
1. I ran out of paper to print the directions and hotel information on so I had to order more - it should be here by Monday
2. Eddie and I need to address and stamp everything
I hope to have the invitations mailed by Wednesday. I think this is a reasonable goal - especially since I am delinquent in sending them out!
I have been working hard on them the last two weeks though and am pleased with the final result. I hope you all enjoy them too!

Latest news: Today, we signed a lease.
We got keys for the place that we will be moving into after we get married. Ann will be bach'n it for the next few months until I move after the wedding. We are both really excited. It's a simple little place, nothing fancy, just two bedrooms. It's not the four bedroom palace, facing Greenlake that we dream of. However, we do get some night time freeway noises, thanks to I-5 to fall asleep to. =)
All this to say:
It's ours and we are excited to make this awesome small yet huge step in our life to be. I am so excited for the future and to live life with my best friend. I am looking forward to figure you the nuttiness we call life, best part is I get to do it with her.

Well, as you can imagine (or may already know) I ended up responding to one and began e-mailing with a seemingly nice guy named Eddie. I told him I was planning to leave for Europe in three months and that my intentions were simply to meet new people. I assumed that even if I did hit it off with him, he wouldn’t be interested in starting something since I was leaving.
As it turns out we Eddie and I had a lot in common and began to e-mailed each other pretty frequently. The e-mails quickly became short novels and after about a week and a half we moved on to the next "natural" phase of online dating, which of course was to become Facebook friends. A few days later that was followed by the exchanging of phone numbers which led to several late night phone conversations.
After several dates over the following few weeks, amidst Eddie’s random hiking trips and a vacation to Chicago, we decided to make things official. It was a pretty cute, but very cheesy moment, which seems to be a trend for our relationship. In the months that followed he and I took a road trip to Vegas so that I could meet his family. He also met my parents and was "interrogated" by my parents (really just my mother) and we started to meet each others' friends.
