Bracing for Earl

Puerto Rico is especially on my mind today as they are bracing and preparing for Hurricane Earl which is now a category 4. Let's keep them in our prayers today.

85 Days!

We just got back from a magical get away to Puerto Rico. We
went to take care of our wedding preparations and make sure that

everything is in perfect order. We had such a blast and Terrance just fell in love with Old San Juan! We were able to see our ceremony location and I got chills just thinking about how lucky we are to have such a beautiful and historical backdrop. It was a beautiful day and so many families were out there picknicking on the park grounds and flying kites with their children. We also met with our florist and photographer who took a few awesome shots of us so he could get to know us better.

And our caterer even did a food tasting for us!

100 Days To Go!

We are down to 100 days til the big day!!!

I have been thinking about ways to include my brother into this very special day. I wish that he was here to see how happy I am despite all I've been through over the past few years. I found a beautiful bud vase for a single rose that I'm having personalized with "In loving memory of Miguel Martinez who is present in our hearts." I'm also going to have his picture placed in a locket and pinned to my bouquet. I think these are nice ways to honor his memory. I know he is my guardian angel and with me always.

Crossing Off More things Off of the Checklist

We are making progress. I can't believe how the weeks are just flying by. We've finally booked our photographer and I can't wait to meet him in a few weeks when he shoots a love story session of us. I also just received the flowers that I'll be wearing in my hair. And wait until we reveal our cute TEAM ANDREWS t-shirts.

The major accomplishment this week was finding my shoes! I wanted something SEXY but was worried about walking at El Morro with super high heels. I happened to see these perfect pair of shoes in the clearance section at Macy's in a teeny size 5. I fell in love with them and looked for them all over the Internet but couldn't get my hands a pair because they are discontinued. I had given up on them entirely and went shoe shopping at another Macy's and there they were, in my size and the perfect shade of plum! It was truly meant to be. And the best part, their $35 price tag!
