Engagement Pics and a BUSY Weekend

After many canceled tries I finally rescheduled our Engagement Pictures. This has been the craziest summer for Weather. They are tentatively scheduled for August 11th. Everyone pray that the weather is beautiful that evening! If anyone is getting married in Memphis check out my photographer. His name is Kevin Barre and he is wonderful!! He is a little pricier than most but it's so worth it. In ten years you'll only have your pictures as a memory so why not get the BEST???
SO this weekend is going to be CRAZY! Tonight Jared and I are meeting up with some of his friends for a Redbirds game. The weather is supposed to be beautiful. Maybe I'll get a big beer and enjoy the evening. Tomorrow I'm going to try and fit in run. I've definitely slacking in the exercise area this week. However I have eaten better so all is not lost. No weight loss yet.
Tomorrow afternoon is my cousin's baby shower. I'm so excited about it. This is her first baby. She'll be 39 this month and little Caroline Elizabeth is definitely an answer to ALOT of prayers. I can't wait to meet her.
The craziness continues on to Sunday. One of my childhood friends who grew up down the street from me is getting married September 19, 2009 so my mom and I are going to her shower. We haven't really kept in touch since High School but her mom and My mom still live down the street from each other and are super close. I'm so happy for Jill. I can't wait for her wedding!
What are every one's big weekend plans? Does anyone else feel like their weekend is going to be chaotic?
Wedding Update:
Bridesmaid Dresses are in!!!!!

I'm really getting married...

The reality that I'm getting married in less than 3 months really hit me on Friday. As I was checking my emails I noticed an email from "the Knot" with the subject being 3 Months to Go!. After I picked myself up off the ground. J/k I knew it was time to get serious and get everything marked off my ever growing "to do" list. The list the Knot gives you is Crazy in-depth but super helpful. So needless to say it's Crunch Time at the Corum-Franks Households.
This past weekend I spent the night at my parents. Jared went to the Lake with one of his Best Men so I decided it would be a perfect time to get some stuff completed with my Mom. We didn't accomplish much however due to the fact that my veil and shoes came in!!!!! So of course I had to try on everything! It really hit home again that I'm getting married. I couldn't be happier. I seriously kept the dress, shoes, and veil on for at least an hour. My mom had to pry it off my body! hehe
Other than that my weekend was pretty normal. I know starting this weekend my schedule gets crazy. I have a baby shower for my Cousin on Saturday and Sunday is a Shower for one of my childhood friends. Then my bridal showers start! I guess I better get to planning and working on the Guest List. It's up to 609 guests at the moment! I think I've lost my mind!
