Our Life in a Blog

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would give this a try. Jake and I have a Humzoo account which we thought would be fun to do and liked how you can add movies and stuff to it, but right now since we don't have kids or anything we have nothing interesting to put on there. I like the setup of this better so I think I'll stick with it for now.

So, we have been getting SO much done lately for wedding planning. I am feeling a little overwhelmed with how busy our schedule is and how much there is to do, but the fun parts help to even out my stress and I'm enjoying this planning process :) I've been ordering a lot of items from different artists and craftsmen on the internet, and it's so exciting to see the items when they arrive! Plus, I love getting packages all the time!

I have been trying to get into couponing so that we can save some money, plus it's a fun little challenge. I had one of my first couponing excursions tonight and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the result. It's not a crazy awesome deal like a lot that I read about, but since we had a lot to buy and saved a good bit of money, I'm happy with the result. I went to BiLo and RiteAid:

Well, that's all for now--got to get some rest for work in the morning. We are throwing a wedding shower for our friends tomorrow evening which should be lots of fun, and on Sunday afternoon I'm going to lunch with a couple friends at the Cheesecake Factory-YUM!
