And here we go!!

Mike and I are heading out to Indiana tomorrow so we have enough time to put weddingy things in order and have enough time to enjoy the process!  We are so excited that our wedding day is near (and really still can’t believe it is almost here).  We look forward to seeing our family and friends at Bradford Woods!  Travel safe, and see you soon!

Shuttle Options to Bradford Woods from Indianapolis Airport

This weekend when we were out in Indiana a friend told us about 2 shuttles that travel from the airport to Bloomington and back.  Their route travels right past Bradford Woods, so this may be an option.

We spoke with Bloomington Shuttle, which is $25 one way, but you can get a discount if you reserve online.  You should give them a call to confirm transportation to Bradford Woods (as it is not a typical stop).

Another option may be Star of America.  They just recently began running a shuttle to and from Bloomington to the Airport.  We have not spoken with them, but it might be worth checking out.  They quote their price at $15.

Midwest Celebration

We arrived in Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.  Jaime (one of my bridesmaids) arrived just around the same time.  Our friend Jessie who currently lives in the area picked the girls up, and Mike went on his way.

We traveled down towards Bloomingon, IN and arrived at Oliver Winery.  A few friends I worked with at Bradford Woods met us there, we had some great appetizers and wine!

We then went off to Django for some great spicy potatoes, pad thai, fruit sculpture, and more!  We traveled down the street to Nick’s English Hut and played their famous game “Sink the Biz”.  Then we returned to Kim’s house and had a campfire on her patio.

On Sunday morning we made the trip up to Homer Glen, just south of Chicago to meet up with the Taylor family for a Midwest style bridal shower.  Mike hung out for a bit, then went off with his brother Matthew, Dan and Matt (Goska).
