Wedding Wednesday: May 4, 2011

We are now into May! Only 1.5 months away!We have 9 days to receive 58 RSVP's. I have a feeling we will be making lots of phone calls. (and by we, I mean our parents)

We kind of slowed down a little over the past two weeks. Easter took a bit out of us and it's taken a bit to get back into the groove.
We have a lot of outstanding tasks that should have been completed in April. They didn't NEED to be done, but should have since it would lessen the load in May.
