Counting The Days

Rainor, Daniel and I spent all morning doing yard work at the wedding site. The only problem with having an outdoor wedding on family property is the amount of preparation required to get it ready.

After just a couple of hours my hands, not used to yard work, are covered in blisters. This is despite the leather gloves I was wearing the whole time. And this afternoon the blistery bride returns to lay extension cords.

I become Silas's wife in 8 days.

We pick Silas and Katie up in Portland in 3 days.

The next eight days will be a flurry of activity and fellowship. So I can't really promise to post much, which makes me kind of sad because I would love to share everything I'm working on with you guys. Everything seems to be coming together beautifully.

Looks like there'll be lots of food, drinks, people, and dancing. (Plus a photobooth, which I'm really excited about.)

I get totally stoked just thinking about what a great party our wedding is going to be. Which is what we wanted it to be from the beginning, a big party for all of our friends, celebrating Silas and I's marriage.

Peace out.


  1. You know, every time you say "Silas and I's" I don't think it's right. It can't be right. But I can't think of the right way to put it! Should it be like "Silas and my"?

  2. I'm counting the days, too. What kind of dancing will there be? What steps should I practice up on?

  3. @katie - I know, honestly it bothers me too, but I can't figure out what the right way to say it is.

    @kari - English Country Dancing, so there will be a caller and stuff :)

  4. Elisabeth--I cannot tell you how excited I am for you! :) I'm sad I'm not able to make it to the wedding, but you have my prayers and well-wishes! <3 I'm really happy for you, dear... :D


    I looked it up. The test is whether or not each word is grammatically correct on its own.

  6. Why don't you just say "our" wedding.

  7. Dude, your tag things on the bottom of your post make you sound like the 13 year old girl at school who has that crush on that cute guy on the football team who even has a car!! OMG

    I can't believe that next week at this time we will putting tablecloths on all the tables and trying not faint from everything going on!!! CRAZY!!

  8. Congratulations!!!:) I'm sure its gonna be great, hope you post many many pictures =)

  9. How exciting for you! I do not know you, but I have followed your blog a bit. You are quite an entertaining blogger :)

    I was just going to jump in here and say that the correct grammar is 'Silas and my'. Think of it this way, if you take out Silas' name it would be 'my wedding'...not 'I wedding'. So, 'Silas and my wedding' is correct. Make sense? :) If it doesn't you could always just say 'our' ;)


Muse with me. Please?
