Wedding Wednesday

So, lets be honest. This is probably my LAST Wedding Wednesday. I head home on Sunday for the wedding week, and things will probably be so crazed I won't have time to spend on this little blog. I cannot believe we are down to 10 days. Austin and I are pretty similar when it comes to major life events, and the fact that things don't really hit us until its game time. Kind of whats going on here. What'll likely happen is, I will wake up on my wedding day with my game face on and ready to do the damn thing. Operation Let's Get Married.
