On that front, we very nearly have a venue! And a caterer! Now all we really, really need is a date. We're waiting to hear back from our pastor (hopefully today) about a flurry of dates that will work for us in August and September. I've got fingers and toes (and pretty much everything else) crossed that one of them will also work for him. We'll see...

What you see here is actually sock #2, so I should have them finished up after one or two lonely evenings on the couch next week. Silver linings, right?
For the moment, since he's still here and I can, I'm off to spend some time goofing around with my fiance. And later, I'll head out to visit all the WIPW blogs for more super awesome craftiness.
