Submitting i130 & i485 (&i765, i131).

Hi, I am filing my adjustment of status application. I came to the USA on ESTA and married my US Citizen husband who I have known for 4 years. We are going through everything and made a checklist of everything we have. Can someone read over it for me and check that I have included everything I need? I am also worried that we dont have enough bonafide evidence too, but we will definitely have more for the interview? Hoping for someones thoughts on that too.
