oh lordy day! Be so, sooo happy that you only had to read that and not listen to me sing it! I honestly couldn't carry a tune if I had THREE buckets! That being said, I did track down a killer dance mix of the song to play at the wedding and I'm sure there will be tons of tone deaf singing going on there!

Today we start the first leg of our crazy busy travel schedule for the next month and a half. We're driving the 12 hrs it takes to get to my little mountain home in a big Jeep so that we can load it all up with a ton of stuff we need for the wedding...including our favors, which I am super excited about.

My maid of honor (my aunt) is also throwing my "bridal tea" this weekend at her incredible house on their, oh, 40 acres of land in greenbrier county. I absolutely love going there! For all of you photographers out there, it's very near The Greenbrier if any of you have shot there before.



Here's a little piece of history for ya: The Greenbrier had a huge bunker built under it to house all of Congress in the event of nuclear attack during the cold war. Almost 600 people could survive down there for up to two years. It was supposed to be this big secret, but I had heard about it my entire life. And when they finally officially revealed it was down there, my family and I got to go on a tour of it. There is this one place in the hotel where an entire wall swings out to reveal a tunnel leading down into the bunker... and that's just ONE of the secret entrances! Crazy cool stuff!

So anyhoo, we'll be down home until next Monday. We're going to try our best to blog...as you can imagine, internet access can be hard to come by down there. But we've already mapped out all the Starbucks in WV. hahah it didn't take long...there is only one within a fifty mile radius of us! So don't forget to come back and keep our blog company while we're gone...just in case!
