Groomsmen Cookies – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

IMG_5140Wedding is tomorrow!  So, I can’t help myself but to bake.  I am making some cookies to take over for the groomsmen.  Tonight is the rehearsal dinner.  It should be lots of fun!  Everyone is just relaxing at the Chapman house.  The neighbours sent over some beautiful flowers, so I will share the picture.

Currently, Jonathan is on the road from Windsor.  I called him last night to make sure that he packed the wedding rings!  They are (kind of) important.  I am so excited to be marrying my best friend.  He makes me happy each and every day.  He is the kindest, most generous, loving and smart person I know!  All of the wedding planning has been done, and now we just relax and enjoy.  It is going to be a beautiful day.  I can’t wait to put on my wedding dress, and see all of my bridesmaids in the deep eggplant purple dresses.IMG_5143IMG_5139
