Wedding Details

Well its less than two weeks til my single life comes to an end. The big stuff is all taken care of but the little details drag on..... Its like when you are moving. And you think you have most everything, but then the little stuff takes forever..... Our wedding is going to be super simple - nothing extravagant - no bridesmaids, no groomsmen, just us and our parents. But even still - there are lots of little details. So one of the minor details i have been thinking about - is what music to play at the reception. Just for background music - this is where i need everyone's input. I thought about it as i looked at my sister Lauren's blog and the song "True" by Ryan Cabrera was playing... I thought to myself, this would be a good song to add to the mix.. So - all those who have asked what they can do to help - please provide your fabulous ideas. I need your input!

The Cornhusker State

So - as most of you know - just after getting married, James and I are moving to Lincoln, Nebraska. Change-overload!! It will be an adjustment but i think a really good move. For those who have never been to Lincoln, now you have a reason to go. James keeps saying - " I want us to have a really cool apt/house where people want to come visit/stay with us." So you are always welcome! Lincoln really is a great town - not too big, not too small. Lots of pride - but in a good way. They are all about Husker Sports. The downtown is so fun. And there are bike trails everywhere all over the city. And a few other interesting facts about Nebraska....

Nebraska has more miles of river than any other state.

The 911 system of emergency communications, now used nationwide, was developed and first used in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been to a record 27 consecutive bowl games and 27 consecutive winning seasons (James' dad was on the team for at least 2 of those winning seasons!)

In Blue Hill, Nebraska, no female wearing a 'hat that would scare a timid person' can be seen eating onions in public.

The largest porch swing in the world is located in Hebron, Nebraska and it can sit 25 adults.

In 1950, Omaha became the home of the College World Series.

So there you have it....come visit for the College world series, or to bike along the many river trails, or sit with 24 other adults on the largest porch swing! Whats not to love!?
