It's been awhile...

It has been a little over a month since I have last posted. A lot has been going on.
I have got a lot of wedding planning done already!
So far we have the reception/ceremony location, DJ, photographer & officiant picked out and reserved. I have the invitations picked out. I got 50 of them for $20. I only have to print them up myself. They are simple and elegant, just the "theme" we are going for.

They are in a ivory color, and no that is not our info on them, it is the sample invitation the kit came with.
I have also made one of our save the dates. I had an idea of what I wanted but was not sure how it would look on paper. I am pretty pleased with it. Since the majority of our guests are from other states I figured something like this would be good to have.

The top thing is a magnet. I got them off Vista Print for free, all I had to pay for was shipping. I made these with card stock and different scrapbook papers. The magnet is held onto the paper with photo corners. The writing under the magnet reads, " The planning has started, the date is set, here is a magnet so you don't forget".

This wedding planning stuff is a lot of fun. It is amazing to me that some places are booked until 2011. I am glad we have all the major stuff booked and out of the way. All we really need to pick out vendor wise is a florist and someone to make the cake. We aren't having floral centerpieces. All we need are some bouquets, boutonnieres & corsages. Should be fairly cheap since all I want is roses.

I hope to be back to blogging more often. I have been feeling achy all over, kind of like I have the flu but I do not really have it. This has been happening off and on for a few years now. I get really sore all over and just feel like I have the bad flu but I don't. I have started to take some more vitamins so I am hoping that will help with it.

Other then that everything is going fairly well. Hope all is good with you all. I am SO happy the weather is finally starting to cool down.


  1. Hey there girlie!
    So good to hear your "voice". I was starting to think you moved on to bigger and better things. ;)
    The invites look like they are quite lovely, and I love the magnets. Can't wait to hear about more of the details.
    I certainly hope you start feeling better. Have a blessed week!


  2. Sounds like you have been super busy! I hope the plans continue to go well. And I hope you feel better.
