Coupon Goof!!!

A few months back, I purchased a $50 Vista Print (VP) voucher for $10 from Living Social. At the time I thought that I had a major score as I was SURE to need TONS of stuff from VP.

WELL....Since VP gives so much stuff away, I seriously should have known better!!! I have repeatedly tried to redeem this voucher WITH NO LUCK! I never came up with $50 worth of anything that I needed to buy.

And as luck would have it, the voucher expired TODAY. So with less than 45 minutes to spare, I hopped on VP searching for something, anything that I needed and could safely order today.

Since I made my menu selection last Friday, this was of course the only thing on my mind. So I did what any rushed and drowsy bride-to-be would do...I ordered menu cards:

(This is the bottom half)

I know what you're thinking. At least, I know what I'm thinking. It's way too soon. Things could change. You couldn't think of anything else??? Yeah, I know. And to make matters worse...I managed to NOT EVEN USE THE VOUCHER during checkout! In my haste to redeem, I went straight to VP and started shopping. I was SUPPOSED to click on a special link that would allow me to provide a special promo code. Now I knew about the promo code and was looking for it when I clicked what turned out to be my final NEXT. But unfortunately, I read the bit about the link after I'd confirmed my order!

By then, it was 11:45 PM and I still had a voucher to spend.

I bought some yard signs. I hope our guests appreciate them :)!

I'm going to bed before I goof on something else.

So I'm sooooo behind on blogs but still wanted to post some of these drafts that I had.

So with only 12 days til the big day obviously the invitations are OUT THE DOOR!!! So excited!!! I guess ain't no turning back now huh??

I also vowed  would NOT do a RSVP post! So I'm not...however I will say I was super naive to think that I would not go though the process of having to call, text, email, even FACEBOOK people to see if they are attending or not! Oooh that is for the birds! LOL!!

I'm like what are you going to do with the little envelope addresses back to ME with the stamp? Keep it as a souvenir?

Did you have to HAWK people down to get an answer?

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend


Not always...I'm going for PEARLS!!! :o)

I found this bracelet and just FELL IN LOVE!! I knew I had to have it and just HAD to wear it.

Then to top it of my BFF's mom is giving me my something borrowed with her pearl necklace. It's so touching!!! I can't wait to see it all put together!!

What are you wearing?


Pre-Marital Counseling

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE...whatever you do…do NOT skip this part of your planning process. It has totally changed the way we communicate. We had the best sessions ever! We joined the group at our church. It started with just getting a root foundation in our relationship with Christ first…and then focused on our relationship with each other! The sessions were in a group form. The five couples have joined a small group and we now meet monthly for fellowship. So what Ed and I have only been to two meetings. WE LOVE IT.

Admittedly, I didn’t really think we needed it or that we would learn anything new. WELL WAS I WRONG!!! Not only did it help to grow our relationship but it also helped us develop relationships with a great group of couples that are doing this thing the right way as well. We learned that we are not the only ones going through typcial relationship woes.

So again…take the time out to go to some sort of counseling. Allow someone into your space so that you can air out all issues. It’s SOOOOOOO worth it.

Here’s our certificate. We’s OFFICIAL! J

Did you go to counseling?

16 days to go!!!
