it's the final countdown...

2 months to go!!! Let the count down commence!!!!
Honestly, I can't believe it is coming up so fast. When we got engaged we had practically an entire year until the wedding, and now two months?? Where does the time go? And for those of you that know me well, you know that I am just a bit of a procrastinator, so it is officially panic mode. It's going to be ok though. I workbest under pressure. Just like a diamond, right?
Anywho, I came across this invitation suite today and I just had to share it. I love the colors, the calligraphy, the die-cut, everything. I think that if there was one thing I could be better at, it would be calligraphy. It sounds kind of lame, but so does knitting, and I love knitting. I have the hobbies of an 89 year old woman...

Oh, and the invitations are coming along nicely ever since I found this font:

I was totally stuck in a rut before I found this. I hated everything I was making, and just couldn't get the "feel" right. I really like this font in these colors. They make me think of a spring picnic, which is kind of what our wedding will be like.

In other wedding news, my mom is awesome! She is doing all of the leg work forme back in Oklahoma, since obviously I can't be there all the time. She has become an ebay expert/addict, and is truly the one responsible for making this wedding a reality. This is the latest project she is attempting to tackle:

Aren't they loverly?! I love how the bright green moss looks against the pure white of the milkglass. Thanks momma, you're the bestest!


blogspot is freaking out on me, and the formatting is all messed up. please forgive the random double-spacing and font change. thanks!

i have been having all sorts of dreams about the upcoming wedding. some at night while i sleep, some during the day at work, while i drive, when i work out, right before i go to sleep, right when i wake up, and i assume you are getting the point :). not all of them are good though. i have even had a few of those dreams when it's like your late for a final, but in my case i'm late/ not prepared for the wedding. it makes me all sweaty..... but most of the time i just get these flashes or snapshots of what i imagine that day to look like, or a surge of emotions just thinking about walking down the aisle or having our first dance. i get goose bumps just typing it... AHHHH, i can't wait!!!
so for this post i am going to try and give you a little peak inside my head. don't be scared... it's a happy place. these pictures are my attempts to portray all of my wedding daydreams... enjoy!

my shout out to Don and Betty Draper. I love this picture, but i assure you, our marriage will be NOTHING like theirs...

and here is my shout out to Blair and Chuck. yes, it's true. my guilty pleasure (well, one of them) is Gossip Girl.

and one more shout out!
i love 500 days of summer, and i love that jonathan loves it. this was his favorite scene from the movie. he said he like that scene because it showed perfectly how it felt when he was falling in love with me. that "floating on cloud 9" sorta of thing. awww, he loves me. and hall and oats.

ok, i know that was a lot to handle. but maybe now you understand why i am SOOOOOO excited to marry the love of my life, and to do it surrounded by all of my favorite people. it's gonna be awesome.

spring, where are you?!

rain rain go away, please! Seattle is having very winter-like weather at the moment, and i am NOT happy about it. Especially after just getting back from sunny san diego a couple of days ago.
Jonathan and I took a trip to San Diego, and met up with his parents for the week. Usually we all go there for the Oceanside 70.3 tri-athalon that jonathan and his dad do, but unfortunately this year it sold out too fast and they weren't able to participate. So instead we got a relaxing week beachside! we shopped, and ate, and ate, and shopped. so after a week of 80 degree weather i am so so SO ready for warmer weather. but, i suppose for now i will make due with these loverly spring-like beauties...
i am in love with these rifle paper co invitations! anna bond (the genius behind it all) hand stitched all the flowers and then embellished with some paint. after making the prototype she scanned them in the computer and printed out the rest. i love how you get the hand made feel without having to actually do all the work :)

and this! oh my! a loverly easter day engagement shoot. how perfect for this special weekend! the colors, and that little bunny make my heart hop.... get it? hop. like bunny.

twigs and honey have been a go-to shop for me for a while now. they make absolutely beautiful hair and body adornments for women, and it never even occurred to me that they could do the same thing for men. and then i saw these puppies... i love them. they would look so good with the grey suits that jonathan and his groomsmen have picked out, and then after the wedding i get to borrow it!

these shoes=spring. i wanna wear sandals!!!

bravo anthropologie. you never cease to amaze me, or drain me of all of my money. this skirt manages to satisfy my need for spring, and my current Mad Men obsession. (i know i am a little late for the Mad Men train, but I just started watching it and i loooooove it. excluding the whole inferiority of women thing...)

ok, well thats enough wishful thinking for one evening. i need to start preparing for our annual Easter lunch tomorrow with all of our Oklahoma orphan friends. Happy Easter everyone!!!
