random bits:

-our invitations are almost finished. i wasted two 25 sheet packages of paper before i realized it wasn't me that was messing it up, the paper just wasn't receiving the ink properly. one last trip to papersource in pasadena tonight, ugh. they do look wonderful so far!

-when we got engaged my mom offered us funds for a wedding or for a house down payment. obviously we chose the wedding. sometimes i wish i went with the house. reasons we didn't: we aren't sure we want to put down "roots" in LA just yet. we don't know if we could afford a mortgage, taxes, repairs etc right now. houses are a big commitment! if we took the money and didn't buy a house right away i would have just been lusting over weddings. although every time i look at the carpet in our rental house i question my decision just a tiny bit... i pine for hardwood floors.

-i will look back at this week and remember it as the cupcake war of '09.

-i love this wedding! moss in apothecary jars! tiny clothespins holding photos on string! jars hanging from fences and trees! amazing.

yay, friday!


  1. I can't wait to see you!!

    (and beat you senseless with a spatula.)

  2. Thank you so much for your advice! My fiance' found that site last week and I have been checking back everyday for a week but they had been out of the apothecary jars AND the bell jars that I wanted. They finally had them today. Knowing that you received yours and you are suggesting them made me feel makes me very excited to order them!! :)
