I should probably have this…

20091217162511How pretty is that? I’d be wearing this on my wedding day if…ok I just sat here for a few minutes thinking of why I can’t wear this and couldn’t think of anything. Bad.

update: it’s ok folks (mostly Ryan) – I just talked myself out of it. Less is more…or whatever.

Awesome Napkins??

0001145_00_item_detailI didn’t think it could be possible but apparently there are awesome napkins. I saw these over at design*sponge and freaked out a little. Then I realized we already HAVE napkins that we printed on with the Gocco.  Ok so, these would be my second choice.

Glue Fingers

013 Too a little trip to Hobby Craft! Isn’t it pretty? This will hang somewhere outside so it won’t be lit up but I think it’ll still look nice. 5 more to go!

(got the idea from inchmark)

Late for a very important date.


So this is what we ended up doing today – gluing little 11th’s on top of all the first’s. We couldn’t really do much about it. It does look pretty stupid but it’s stupid that the poor invites sat in customs for a week or something! We sent over half out today and the others will be hand delivered. It was a nice feeling after we left the post office all holding hands.

They’re here!

009I literally JUST got home with the invite package and took this. My Mom also gave us the cuuutest dish towels from Blue Q, my favorite Jelly Bellies (juicy pear), lotion and lip glosses from (I think) my Aunt’s shop in Kauai, Tokyo Milk soap and of course our beautifully hand addressed wedding invite envelopes. SOOO happy! I looked through them and got all teary. So gay.

Also, it is the sunniest day ever. I think we’re going to steal the convertible parked across the street and drive it around all day. Kidding…maybe.

Table Numbers


Remember my little crest drawing from last year? I made the one above the next day because I thought I rediscovered doodling. I was thinking about maybe doing some as table numbers. Then as I was thinking of different crest combos, I thought…what are people going to think when they’re seated at the raccoon and the rabbit, wolf and lamb, deer and I dunno… dino!  No, but really. Maybe it is a little kiddie. Do I really need to incorporate our love for animals? I wish I could. I wish I could give each guest a little old school box of animal crackers. Some people just can’t have an Ostrich, ya know? Hey, there are cows on the other side of the parking spaces. And maybe after a few drinks they’ll all turn into party animals…haaa…haa. Ooookay.

These Polaroid scarves are very cool. I think  some kind of galaxy photo would work really well.

3 months 1 day

stressed out bride
Who’s there?
They’re supposed to be here any day now. I’ve been tracking them but they just kinda stopped travelling once they got into the UK. It is a little stressful because the date printed on the rsvp’s is April 1st!! That’s not much time to send them out and get them back. It’s kind of my fault. I should have made it later. There is an option to rsvp online though. Ryan is ALMOST done with the wedsite. There are just a few tiny things to do.
I still haven’t had my proper internet back. We’re on the mobile broadband dongle thing. Tomorrow it will be on, I’ll post more frequently AND get on Skype for my friends and family overseas.
Lots of things to do still. Here’s a list I’ve got goin on:
  • book dress alteration lady
  • buy guestbook and pen
  • buy pogo printer for guestbook
  • order cake(s?)
  • buy corkboard for memory wall
  • pins for memory wall
  • fabric to cover memory wall (£2!)
  • print/scan photos
  • order favorite candies for table
  • buy grooms suit
  • groom’s ring
  • frames for family photos
  • book hair/makeup/nails
  • buy underthings for wedding day
  • buy headpiece for reception
  • make/send bridesmaid cards
  • table number holders
  • order of service cards
  • buy shoes
  • gifts for wedding party
  • order/address/send invites
  • find camera tripod
  • book dj
  • choose friends/family to give readings
  • menu cards
  • decide on florist
(SO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Honestly I didn’t even realize it was 3 months until I just checked my Facebook countdown. o.m.g
P.s. just googled stressed out bride and found that picture.  It really isn’t that bad – yet.

Things? Yes plz.

I’ve had to redo the registry a little because of the lack of space here. It’s good though. Sometimes I go and look and wonder what the heck I was thinking putting spatulas on the registry. I’ve gone for a more gifty things. And instead of getting more items we’ll never have room for, I’ll just replace our old handed down things. Liiiiike…

Yes, I would like these things. I do need more artwork. Everything I like is in the US which means lots of international shipping costs. I need help with finding neat shops online out here in the UK. Ya know, more home shops. All I go to is Habitat and Ikea and I’m really sick of those now!

Home Sweet Home

Movedish! We’re still unpacking, sorting out and building. I haven’t had internet in 5 days…kind of scary. Hopefully life will be back to “normal” soon.
