Invitation pt. 1

So I ordered some sample cardstock from and did a mock up of our invitation. I might get a different stamp because it's kind of hard to see the embossing. Maybe I just need a different kind of embossing powder.

I can get 200 5x7 precut cardstock pieces of the shiny red cardstock, 200 precut cardstock pieces of the 4 1/2x6 1/2 ivory cardstock and 150 shiny red envelopes from for $95.00. Which I think it an awesome deal!

This was one thing I really wanted to do myself since I do graphic design work all day I was pretty sure I knew what I wanted our invites to look like. I'm really happy with the way they turned out and Mr. H is too.

Me & Mr. H

Here's the man I'm going to marry in less than 8 months. *sigh* I love him.

Looking at these pictures reminds me that I need to start working on my vows. I have no idea how I'm going to put my feelings for him into words. There's just so much to say and I want to keep it short so I can try to make it through it without falling apart... which reminds me, I need some really good waterproof mascara... Any suggestions?

Honeymoon is booked!

We are going on a 7 day Carnival cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman & Jamaica!


I had originally planned on using roses... but with our budget and seeing these pictures, I think carnations might be an option. Aren't these beautiful?!

If these are your arrangements, please let me know and I will give you credit.

Dress fitting, bridal expo & massage

That's my plan for Saturday. Mom, Emma & I are going Quincy, IL. Mr. H got me a year's worth of hour-long massages for Christmas so I'm going to get a massage, Emma & I are getting measured for our dresses and then we're going to a bridal expo. I'm so excited! I'm still planning on getting the dress I found on my first trip looking for a dress and Emma is getting an identical one. So, I hopefully will be updating more with lots of wedding planning news. 8 months to go! *gasp*
