VistaPrint, Wii, and Laundry

I can't wait to go check my mail. My Vista Print stuff should be in today. I heart Vista Print!! I even got some stuff for my dad's business so maybe he can get some marketing benefits too!! I hope it's there!! I really want to start working on my aisle runner, but need to wait until I can take it to Mom's to do. That's the only place really that I have enough space to try it - except that craft table is in storage....Hmmm - maybe we need a card table and chairs so I can do it at John's - but then there is the matter of the cats - Hmmmmm - Maybe my empty house would be the best - (well it will be empty after my roomie moves out this weekend)

Onto other news - John played his first softball game last night with my church. They did a great job and beat the other team by 3 or 4 runs!! It's so funny because I really dislike watching Rangers games (maybe because they play almost every night and it takes soooooo long for a game), but I love softball games. Maybe it's because I usually know someone playing - but it seems to go by a lot faster and is a lot more enjoyable!!

While we are bragging about John - he was so cute this weekend. We went over to a friends house and played with their Wii. They had Wii American Idol and Wii Sports - So fun!! John was excited about all his perfect scores on American Idol - lol - the rest of us had fun hamming it up and enjoying John's zeal for the game. I wish they weren't so darn expensive because they are so fun!!!

We have to finish up our marriage counseling homework tonight. Procrastination procrastination. It's not that we don't enjoy doing it - its the sitting down for hours at a time doing it that makes us wait to complete it. Tonight I think we have to work on our marriage mission statement while doing laundry and tidying up a bit.

Tomorrow is hump day already!! Time flies!!

Too many thoughts

I think I need someone to go in my brain and do some spring cleaning. I have so many things going on and so many things to do - everything is priority and I'm just at a standstill. I need a plan. Maybe I will plan to make one tomorrow. :) A new day - a new plan. Let's go world....I'm ready!!

DIY Bride Gets Creative

My current version of our wedding programs. The left side is the back, the right side is the front in the layered format.

Inspiration for Isle Runner done by heatherjk. Great job Heather!!

One of 10 Photo Scavenger Hunt pages. We had planned to have the wedding cameras on the table. Hopefully this will encourage some fun shots at the wedding!

Save the date cards - but will probably have a different photo....

For our wedding wish bowl

For our signature platter....

I also am giong to create a unity candle, tears of joy packets, coloring books, a card box (possibly), out of town bags, and spoonful of kisses.

I'll try to post pictures throughout the process. As of right now it is just in the planning and designing stages.

Love it!!

To blog or not to blog

I feel inspired to begin a new blog. I never would have thought that doing something so fun could be so incredibly stressful. Wedding. Work. Selling house. STILL dealing with my former business expenses. Everyday life. Working out - and the motivation to continue. All these changes and decisions and money and mixing that with the everyday stresses we already have is enough to make anyone a little bonkers. I feel anxious and impatient and it's not really one thing in particular that triggers it. I wish John didn't have to work so much. He really is grossly underpaid for the job he does and the hours he puts in - but oh well. I hate sharing our evenings with his job. They already get one weekend a month when he is on call - the rest of the time is mine or ours or for fun time with friends or whatever - not thiers to claim at the drop of a hat. He works hard at his job but it still is a sore point. It is especially irritating when it is Friday night - almost 7pm and I'm just waiting on him....waiting....waiting....waiting. Not all of my frustration is with him. I'm frustrated at the things on my plate as well. We are under the 9 month mark with still so much left to do. Lots of weight to lose....Having to try to sell my condo on top of it all - a good thing - prolly so - but I just want to rip my hair out or break down in tears - maybe a little of both. I don't want to complain too much because most of the things happening are all good things or have the potential to be - it's just a lot for me to handle and I have my moments where I just obviously feel the need to tell no one in particular that I want to scream. Sigh....
