Back to blog

So I don't know if anyone still checks this because I've done a lousy job of keeping Nallie '08 up-to-date. Some of you may even be wondering if this thing is still happening.

Well, here's my proof:

Allie and I got our marriage license on Monday and can legally get married in about two hours from the time I am writing this (there's a two-day waiting period — just like buying a gun!). Not that we plan on changing the date from Aug. 2, I'm just saying.

The process of getting a marriage license is not too hard, at least here. Mostly you just need to answer a few questions, like saying no to"Are you two related in anyway?", then you fork over $35 and its yours.

We also picked out wedding bands on Monday. Here's a photo of what mine will look like:

It's titanium, which the jeweler tells me means it will be durable. I also like the plainness. I've never worn a ring so I think it will be weird, but I guess I will get used to it.

Allie's is going to be custom made, so I can't show you what it looks like yet.

On Tuesday, friends and family in the Midwest probably received an e-vite for a shindig my parents are throwing on the afternoon of June 21. If you didn't get it it is probably because I don't have your e-mail address. Just send it to me or e-mail the blog or whatever and I will get you the info. You can also come even if you did not get the e-vite.

That night is also bachelor party Part I, the Iowa version.

Matt Schafer is organizing that and I am sure he is doing a fine job. He may also be getting a bus for transportation. Contact him if you need more info.

It's hard to believe that we are less than two months away from the wedding. Invitations should go out late this week/early next week. We have all of the big things done, like booking photographer, DJ, reception, etc; but according to that damn checklist at The Knot we have like 100 more things to do.

I can tell you at least one thing we got out of the way — the first round of songs that we will be on the "Do Not Play" list.

Drunk requests sound like fun, but don't expect to hear YMCA at my reception.

Hope to have more tomorrow. Blogging is back.

I love the comparison to buying a gun.

Hey there,

My brother sent this to me. I hope all is well and I can't say anything about planning a wedding, my husband did most of the work. Plus, I was 5 1/5 month along with Kareena, so I can't complain. I hope your wedding is amazing,and everything you hope it to be. I cannot make it, I have to be in a wedding myself that day! You guys will be in my heart on that day! I wish you guys lots of happiness! Hopefully we will see you soon when you visit the good old IA!

Take care and best wishes!!!

P.S. Really like the Blog!
