5 months later...

We have just passed the 5 month mark in our engagement. I have no idea where the time went, but I am very thankful! If my math is right, we're about 1/6th of the way there.

Needs Done:

...I cannot believe this is all the further we've gotten. I guess I did leave out some stuff - we do have most of our stationary. Invitations, thank you cards, programs - thank you, 50% off coupons for Michael's. Even still, we don't have all of it and I just got word that our particular style is being retired. Crap.

I'm going to blame the huge lull in activity on life itself. 3 jobs between us, bills bills bills, etc. I feel rejuvenated lately, and like we're making a lot of planning progress. We have an appointment in August to look at a local facility that shows promise. I used to think this place was an absolute winner, until I carefully examined their pictures and noticed the blue carpet...and chairs. BLUE? AHHHHHHHHH. Blue doesn't sit well with our brown and ivory (chocolate and cream? mocha and off-white?) plans. I hate to nitpick; but I need class, not clash.

Hopefully tonight we can make a master guest list, and maybe call a few more places for the reception. Wish me luck!


  1. Honestly, blue and brown is my FAVORITE color combination. If you tie it together right, it will look intentional...and be ADORABLE!

  2. I forgot to mention the accent color is light pink! I mean, that's what we have planned, but you make an awesome point! Mike originally picked blue...he'll love this.

    I'll keep you updated! Thanks for the encouragement!
