Last night...

Busy, busy days!!!

Tonight is the last night that I will spend in this house as a single woman. Tomorrow night, some of us will be going over to the church with the camper and will stay there until the wedding is over.

Michael just arrived and it is his last night of staying over at my parent's in their guestroom too. :)  He brought the last of his things. What exciting times!!  Please pray for his folks though, as I know they'll miss Michael and all that he did to help keep the dairy farm running well.

My mom and I went to Bismarck today. I got my nails done (first time of ever doing that), so that was fun. I think we're almost ready for Saturday now!

This will be my last post as a single woman too, come to think of it!!

May God bless you all and all of us.
Lots of love,
  Cora Bornemann

Head in the clouds...

I confess. I'm on cloud 9 and not thinking the clearest at times! It just might have something to do with the fact that I'm getting married in 6 days?

I'm more than a little excited!!!  It's been great corresponding with old friends, especially hearing of people who are planning to come share in our joyous day. 

Andrew and I spent our spare time yesterday (and the day before) putting together a slide-show for the wedding.  I finished packing for Michael & my honeymoon today. :) I also cooked up a batch of tomato soup and canned it. I think the rest of the garden produce can now wait until post-wedding.

Saturday, please hurry up and come, and Lord, give me patience!

9 days...

I'm getting SOOOO excited!!!!  In 9 days, I will become Mrs. Michael Dalquist!!!!!    He is SUCH a blessing to my life. He even brought me flowers on his last visit here. :)  God has blessed me almost beyond belief.  While Michael was here, we worked on several wedding projects (one involved varnishing), and did I mention that my dearest lady-friend, Lauretta GOT MARRIED last Saturday???  :)

She was such a lovely bride and the day was very special. I was honored to be in her wedding party with her sisters and we spent all morning of the wedding curling hair and styling it and talking.... We got to wear hoop-skirts, so that was a new experience.  Michael came to the wedding too so, of course, we had to get a picture together:
I'm so very happy for my friend!!!
 Awwww.... :)

My mom and I spent the day in Bismarck, buying wedding supplies and such.  We'll need to go up one more time next week, then hopefully will have our lists checked off.

And now, I'm exhausted and am going to bed (after talking to my sweetheart for a bit first)!

What a great day!

Michael and I had our last counseling session with the Kyners (we took them out to eat this time) AND got our marriage license in Jamestown. :)

Wedding favors...

My mom came over this afternoon and helped me by finishing up the wedding favors I made for the big day. (They're still a secret.)

I'm caught up with the tomatoes now, so somebody please tell the pink and green ones to stay that way for a month. ;)

Michael is a sweetheart!!  He's been very helpful and interested in the wedding planning project, even when the 304 miles separate us. I just learned today that my childhood friend, Kjersti (and her little family) is coming to the wedding, so now I'm even MORE excited!!  My other childhood friend, Lindsay is also coming, so maybe we can get a picture together, for old times' sake? The three of us used to be inseparable.

Tomorrow I get to start on the big project of baking/decorating cake and cupcakes for Lee & Lauretta's wedding on Saturday, October 10th. I need to get everything ready anyway.  This is going to be a WONDERFUL weekend!!  I'm so happy for my dear friend!  AND Michael is coming on Friday. :)

Please keep my mom in your prayers in the next 2+ weeks. She's had some heart issues lately and I just hope she can enjoy the wedding and not stress about anything.   October 10th is ALSO my parent's 35th wedding anniversary!  So much love and joy!

I probably won't have time to update here until after the weekend....

God is SO good!

In an hour... brothers and are I leaving for MN.  Michael and James are having a paintball-bachelor-party and my brothers think that that sounds like fun, for some reason?  SO, as long as they're going, I figured I might as well hop aboard and go visit certain people that I love. :)   We'll be back tomorrow sometime.

Gotta go feed the birds.

2nd fitting...

Bill and Anna E. came today from Grand Forks. Anna has Lauretta's wedding gown finished, so Lauretta came over and tried it on and it was PERFECT!  She took it home with her for her wedding (in 9 days). :)  Anna isn't finished with my dress yet, but had me try it on. She needs to hem it up a bit more yet. I don't desire to go tripping up the aisle.

I babysat the past 3 days, then worked on putting up tomatoes in the evenings. Still have half a ton to do.

A lot of RSVPs came in last night and today, so that's helpful.  It's going to be a wonderful wedding----with so many friends coming......
