This weekend I..

Well, 
for the first time, oh, EVER, I recalled that Syndal hosts a weekend linkup, and I finally formatted my post properly so I feel like I can participate, weeeee!
 

This weekend I...
did some emotional shopping, and eating, and got our guestbook in the mail! I LOVE IT, it's just as pretty as the photos I posted. I need to start ordering more wedding things in the mail, wedding mail is the best kind of mail!  

This weekend I...
Visited the exotic land of Moorhead, MN for a wedding, and spent a lot of time with M's dad's kitty (literally, she's still a baby) "sassy cassie".. who happens to have a heart shaped mark on her back.  


This weekend I...
Supervised some naps before the wedding, whilst I did my nails 


This weekend I...
 gave myself some fancy nails for the wedding. The base is a burgundy color so dark it looks black except in certain light, accented with some silver glitter. I kind of love the way it looks like it's falling down the nail from the top.  


This weekend I...
returned home Sunday to MORE fun wedding nails! Remember how I said I'd maybe bring you guys mock ups of STDs (save the dates, pervs)  for a vote? Welp, I got impulsive, and to be honest I rarely ask people for their opinion on these types of things... so I went ahead and ordered them.


(here's the back!)


Here's the front!
1. Yes, I know, the front is vertical, the back is horizontal.. but I really wanted to include a photo that had our heads, so people knew those were my feet, and..well...who matthew & kelly were...(you can never be too careful).. is that totally weird? I'll be honest, I don't care a lot. hahaha.
2.  I REALLY didn't want to put the date on the back again, since the whole point of the adorable shoes was to tell people what the date was. BUT M had me all freaked out that there would be stupid people who wouldn't see it and call or something asking what the date was. I've heard of way dumber things, and in an effort to subvert the stupid people, I complied....hesitantly. 

I just designed the back as a "photo" in Photoshop, and then used Shutterfly's postcard custom designer, uploaded one for the front, one for the back, and bam! The deal was $10 for 100 postcards. Except, then they charge you $4.99 per photo you upload. (uhhh, sweet?) So, we had originally used a bunch of small photos to compile the back of the postcard, which was itemized at like, $50. No thanks. So, M figured out how to do it in Photoshop so that when we uploaded it, and stretched it out, it wasn't all ugly and pixelated. Beat the system! Sort of. Cost us $30 with shipping. Not too bad, and same as our invites. I only could order 100 or 200, so I think I'm going to wind up sending to families vs. individual kids..we'll have to see how I'm doing on numbers. Then, send invites to more individuals. I figure the parents can pass on the word though in some cases (i.e. college students out of state)

 This weekend I...
Came home to cat barf on the basement storage room floor. 

When we leave town, we usually have someone come over only once on Saturday to feed TJ, so he gets his full 1/2 cup of food all at once. This weekend it happened to work to have M's mom come Saturday morning, and sister come Saturday night. I don't think M passed word along to make sure his mom used the 1/4 cup then in the morning.. so we think she gave him the full half cup (or at least, one of them did) and then "a little more" because she said it didn't look like enough. We came home at 1:00 sunday, and there was still a LOT of food in his dish..so something had to have been wrong w/how much he was given. We then discovered the barf. This is why he's regulated, because he's a little fatty with no self control, and ate himself sick. (Something his father has done a time or two, as well....)

There's my weekend! 

Unrelated... I just made an off the cuff comment to M about guest blogging. 
Seconds later, he noticed his sweatshirt, that had buttons and a pouch on it, had been inside out all day.... this was his response: 

"guest blogging? Ha!" (not thinking it was a real "thing")
"like..guest starring on a TV show?... well.. I'll work on putting my clothes on not inside out first"

so, stay tuned for that, guys. hahaha

  5. So when Jesse and I started our blog 2 years ago it was a joint effort. We'd alternate the narrating of our wedding planning. Jesse is a much better writer than me and I loved when he gave his side of the wedding deets. Definitely get that man of yours in on the fun. Reading those posts of Jesse's a year or two later are my favorite.

    Save the dates are suuuuper adorable. Good work workin the system. You're a girl after my own heart.
