Accomplishments

This weekend:

  • Purchased veil!!!
  • Purchased {most of the} bridesmaid's gifts.
  • Attended an amazing wedding shower hosted by three of my mother's friends. It was fabulous.
  • Assembled registry inserts to include (separate from the main invitation and insert cards) in the invitation packets for guests that might not have access to the internet.
  • Determined how to incorporate a signature mat AND a blurb book into our big day.
  • Determined that making a card box out of circular hat boxes covered in plum fabric would be a cruel task to make Kristen complete. Going back to the drawing board.
  • Beefed up our Macy's registry.

Mommy and I were more than proud of all of our accomplishments. Did any of you attend your shower this weekend or accomplish something "major?"
And since every blog post should have a pretty picture...

I'm not normally a fan of the whole "damsel-in-distress-clutching-onto-the-leg-of-a-man" look...but this one is just too good to pass-by. Love the train, love the gravel and love her dress!

Etsy has some great card boxes if you are unable to make one! They even do circular ones!

Yea! Good for you! Our first shower was last weekend! It was such fun. Our website went live too! That felt like a big accomplishment. I got my "will you be my bridesmaid?" cards done! Finally! We got the kitchen packed and a lot of other moving stuff done and Sunday Adrian kindly suggested a day of rest since I was stressing myself out. Turns out God knew what He was talking about! A day of rest did me a lot of good. Kelly
