I love how detailed your list is by category! I may have to use that idea (if that's okay with you)! You are getting so close! Can't wait to read about your recap for the bachelorette and shower!

You have so much done! AHHH! I know I say that every time you have a list post like this, but it's so true. I can't believe you are getting married soon. Holy crap. We are almost at 3 months and I am beginning to freak out a teeny bit. I just can't believe it's finally happening!
