in the home stretch

Here we are, the week of my wedding!! The excitement is starting to seep into my existence. :) Whilst I was away, there was the shower..
Here's my niece assisting in opening the gifts.
Here are my two helpers that were expert gift wrap removers!
And here I am with one of the gifts we received!
This was taken the day before the shower-the monkey at my house.
And here she is in Hollywood.
My mom, brother, and niece came for the weekend when we had the wedding shower. It was nice having them here! My niece had a great time and she's into the 'why?' crap now. What fun. My fiance's mom and oldest sister are busily working on some wedding crafts that I have yet to see..and this past weekend I worked on the wedding favors.They're missing something. Though I'm not quite sure what. I also did some work on the flower girl basket: and we took our dresses and my fiance's suit to be altered (his step-mom is doing the work!). Oh, here's a pic of my shoes..
and here's the dress the lil monkey will be wearing!
And amidst all things wedding, I'm still applying out for jobs though nothing has popped yet. :( Maybe as soon as the wedding has come and gone something will pop. At least I'm hoping so! Seems as though I'm on a one thing at a time track. There's been very little knitting. I tinked back and redid the bind off for my ishbel so she has been reblocking and she is waiting for her steam. Then she'll be all finished! My diamond fantasy shawl ran into some trouble so I had to tink back quite a few rows but she's back on track. If only it would stop being so hot! Then I would actually feel like knitting. Nothing fun about knitting with sweaty fingers!!
