So, on the wedding planning front...I ordered some beads off of Etsy that I am going to use to make my earrings, which I am very excited about. I make a lot of my own jewelry and it's always exciting to see the ideas become reality! Also, I bought the glass jars and lids for the wedding favors...that's all the detail I am giving about them until much closer to the wedding :) I thought it was pretty cool that the jar company is from Lancaster, PA--pretty close to where we used to live and my Dad used to work there. Funny how little things like that happen. I also ordered the envelopes for our wedding guest book, which is going to look sort of like this, but of course I'm putting my own spin on it:

I saw this in a magazine and thought that it was a really cute idea. I think it could be fun to bring it with us on our honeymoon and either read the notes on the plane or at some point on our trip.

That's all for now, my computer battery is about to die.


  1. Teach me how to coupon ha. I want to start after the wedding, there's just too much going on right now to even try to start. Cute idea with the guest book :)

  2. Thanks :) yeah we can get together and I will show you the good sites and teach you. I'm still learning too, but I'm getting the hang of it! It really does help and saves a good bit. You just have to spend a little bit of time preparing everything.


I'd love to hear from you!
