I finally got around to putting up the wedding countdown over there on the sidebar. It's nothing fancy but I had to create it myself on some website generating some HTML code. Either way, it's up to keep tabs on when our big day is!

Anyways, we have started handing out some of the invitations while we were in Dallas over spring break to some of my friends and family. We had only printed up something like 20 or 25. We are getting the other 200+ envelopes addressed now and we will be printing the final invitations in the next few days. We hope to have these out in the next week or so, but that's being optimistic. 

Other than that, we have been kind of dragging our feet (we know, we only have 2 months left, there is definitely not room for that). We have gotten a few things out of the way though. I don't know how to say this lightly and delicately, but Samm had her "big girl" doctor's appointment today. Apparently, she didn't have the horrific experience that some others have. Anyways, that is all I am going to say on that. I'm sure if she wants to share some more on that she will, but I will not. 

I think it is starting to sink in that we have 2 months left! We still have so much to do, but it seems like we have plenty of time. We are still trying to keep everything in front of us so we don't forget something and not leave it to the last minute. We're still working out details on the decorations and food, stuff like that. Believe me, it's been an adventure so far. No stress freakouts or anything like that, but it's definitely starting to sink in that this is creeping up VERY quickly. 

Oh, one more thing we are working on! We are still trying to plan the honeymoon and make reservations. We are really liking the idea of going down to the coast (somewhere, probably Corpus Christi) and possibly even spend 1 night camping on the beach. We are really excited, but like a lot of other things, no real plans yet. 

Wish us luck!!


Well blogging world, we have finally finished our invitations! Well, okay, that was misleading...
Well blogging world, we have finally finished some of our invitations!

After many hours of designing, picture taking, editing, cropping copying and pasting, thousands of hole-punches, corners and paper-cutting, and some assembly,!!!.... we have finished some of the invitations.

If you haven't given us your address, time is swiftly running out!

I'm really excited about these suckers. We took our own photos, designed everything on our own, and threw them together. Blooper of the week!: We had to make our own Target Registry cards because the one we went to completely robbed us of our complimentary bag-o-stuff. After much stressing that wasn't even worth it, after printing page after page and cutting rectangle after rectangle, I notice a typo. "" It was such a stressful day that all I could do was one of those pitiful "I give up" laughs. My sweet, loving sister wouldn't accept a pitiful "I give up" laugh for an answer, so with her help, we printed out more and cut them out in a third of the time it took me in the first place. Shout out to Jenni!! I really appreciate the help! ♥

Success of the week: These works of art know as announcement/invitations, all together, cost less than $50! *high fives all round*

Spencer has also been amazing. He did a great percentage of that hole-punching and cornering mentioned earlier. We each have sore hands, but I think it was worth it! Keep your eye out for em, these things are masterpieces!

Tomorrow, we are headed out to Dallas so invitations will be put on hold, but we'll get back next Wednesday and it'll be full steam ahead!
