September is here! Our date auction is only 17 days away and our anniversary celebration is only a month away- can you imagine it? I had some moments of panic this morning when thinking about how close our events are. Today was a busy day- I was up at the printers this morning checking out our calendar proof- it looks awesome and will be ready next week! This afternoon, I was working on sending out our anniversary invitations. It takes a while because I write personal messages inside each invite and because I have so many to send out. I like to personalize them because I always enjoy invitations that have been personalized and last year, someone commented how they liked that I had written a note inside the invitation. I was really stupid though, because I should have gotten all the invitations ready last week, so that all I had to do was mail them today- I don't know what I was thinking by waiting. I know I've been busy, but I should have made time. I didn't have a lot of time this afternoon, but I did get 45 sent out and tomorrow will get the remaining 245 mailed. I am so nervous about getting people there. I also need to chase down the rest of those auction items that people promised but I don't have yet- that is so time consuming.
In really good news- the Sofft shoes arrived for our date auction! They are so cute and comfortable as well (the best possible combination!). I didn't have time to look at them all, but the ones I did see were gorgeous- very sleek and sexy. They sent mini shoe keychains as well which we will give out as people enter. I am still working on the gift certificates for the date auction- we are 9 items short and I am having such trouble coming up with the remaining items. I also need to chase down the info from firefighters who signed up, but still haven't sent their info. I'm trying to get everything squared away as soon as possible and right now there are too many loose ends.
Well, I'm going to go back and work on my invitations- my goal is to get to 80 before bed. There is more I wanted to blog about, but it is 12:24 and I need to get back to work. Wish me luck and speed! Until tomorrow night friends..
