100 DAY MARK!!



This past weekend, My mom and I went to pick out flowers and decorations! It's going to be SO SO pretty!! Don't want to say much about how it will look, but keep in mind that my colors are tropical blue and black, my flowers are orange and pink, and my theme is still "Paris".

Then, we went and met with a photographer and booked her! I was really wanting my sister-in-law to take the pictures at the wedding, but she is in the ceremony and will be 8 months pregnant! Didn't think she would want to be walking around taking pictures all night! We don't want her to have the baby at the wedding now do we? HAHA! No stress for the future "Coggin Mommy"! That kind of stuff should only be happening to me on that day! ;) Hehe. Anyway, my sister-in-law did help me pick out a good one! Her name is Angela Free. Check out her web page and you'll see that she is pretty awesome and she was really a nice person to talk to! Very down to earth!

I'm finishing up invitations. I've decided that I will send them out around the beginning of April, but I did need a better head count for decoration purposes and will need to have a bridal shower list. I think there is going to be around 150 invitations sent out.

The Stanton paper lost the picture and write-up that I sent them, so just sent it to them again. I'm thinking they will have it in the paper soon enough. I have contacted the Big Spring paper about it and they have not responded. They put our write-up on their web page, but it was never put in the actual paper yet. We were in the Midland paper and their web site on Sunday, the 15th.

The bridal shower is being put together as we speak(or as I'm typing hehe). I have heard rumors of the date and place, but I'll post it when I know for sure. All I'll tell you right now is that it is going to be in Stanton and probably sometime in the month of May. Kelly and I have not registered anywhere yet, but thinking of registering soon when we are both off of work at the same time in Big Spring, Stanton, and Midland. Let you know on the places as soon as that gets done.

Hmmm...I think that's it right now!

We're in the Midland Reporter Telegram Not sure why our picture isn't on the web page, but it is in the actual paper. Already checked. I figured we would be in the Stanton paper first thing, but Big Spring and Midland have beat them. I guess we'll be in the Stanton paper next Thursday.

Ok, shows what I know!! :D

The announcements in the Big Spring and Stanton paper didn't come out this passed weekend! I apologize! I just assumed since I gave them the information last Monday, that they would be out that following weekend.They should, however, come out in the next paper! I hope! Ha! I can't really tell you exactly what date they will be out. I was told that the Stanton paper only comes out on Thursdays so it should be in the paper this Thursday (12th). I'm not sure about the Big Spring paper. I'm sure we'll be in the next one that comes out. The only paper I know for sure of the date is the Midland paper. We'll be in that one on the 15th. When it does come out, the Midland and Big Spring paper also have a web site online where you can go and look at the announcements if you aren't able to get a paper. Midland is and the Big Spring site is We should be on these sites. I'll let you know for sure as soon as I know.
