In the middle of the night my mom let her out to go to the bathroom and she would not stop barking. We think there may have been some birds or a critter in our backyard, but whatever it was Sadie did not think it belonged there. Sadie spent the rest of the night curled up with me, tossing and turning. Needless to say, I didn’t sleep so well!
Though waking up before dawn on the weekend isn’t exactly ideal, it did give me a chance to get a quick run in before the hustle and bustle of the day began. I even got to try out my new Garmin!
Unfortunately I had it set up to report my statistics in kilometers, so I didn’t really understand my pace very well! I like my miles. I converted my statistics when I got home and found that Sadie and I covered slightly more than 5 miles.
Meeting the Pastor
After a quick breakfast, Ryan and I headed out to meet with Pastor Dean, a potential officiate for our wedding at his home in Dunedin, Florida.
Pastor Dean and his wife were wonderful to meet and seemed like such genuine people. Plus, Pastor Dean was very open to incorporating our ideas into the ceremony. I think we found another winner!
When we arrived back to my parents’ house, we had a big brunch waiting for us.
Before we sat down, my dad handed everyone mimosas to enjoy!
I filled my plate with all the goodies, and went back for seconds of the ham and thirds of the hash browns.
After brunch, we printed off our list of everyone in the world we would like to invite to the wedding and discussed everything thoroughly to get to a final number we are all comfortable with.
Our grand total… 155 people!
The total is definitely more than we initially thought we would have on our list, but it’s not as outrageously huge as it could have been. It feels good to have all of our guests on paper!
How many people came to your wedding? If you’re not married, do you want a big wedding or a small wedding?
