Every gift (except the earrings) are personalized with the guy's nickname. It's pretty cool. Makes me want to be one of his GMs!! At least one who put forth effort!! LOL!

We also got them all Argyle socks and the GMs Ts. I'm putting them all together next week!! YAY!!!!!!!!

Okay, this story is unbelievable. I started off thinking I had sooooooo much time to do my invitations and get them out.....WRONG!! All of a sudden, it was beyond time to have the invitations sent out! AND I had NOTHING!! We are doing DVD invitations and our DVD wasn't burning right, the printer was drinking the ink for the labels, I didn't even have anything as far as paper is concerned (to put the dvd's in, the insert cards, RSVPs, envelopes, NOTHING!). So I put in an order at and got them by the 2nd day (I super expediated the shipping!) and FI ordered a super DVD burner from EBay. Then we got to work....OMG. I didn't realize how much work I would be doing and what I would be getting myself into. So I contacted Sarah (GoingtobeGoff, and had her put together a design for my insert cards. Not only is she friggin amazing, she's extremely talented and TOTALLY awesome. So after a whole afternoon of chatting and going back and forth, Sarah put together this AMAZINGLY gorgeous design. She got my vision before I even understood what it was.
THEN it came time to print. ***BIGGEST LONGEST SIGH EVER*** What a headache. I went back and forth to Office Depot cutting cards (I only ordered one set of insert cards so I had to go create more (the guest information/map inserts), buying ink, and buying sticky pads (to seal). After countless ink cartridges, glue sticks, sticky pads, cardstock, scissors, a cheap busted paper cutter, several messed up envelopes, 4 days of starting around noon and working til 3am, and a NEW PRINTER, VOILA!! Here are my DIY invitations. Enjoy yourselves.

Searching for shoes has been a long crazy process for me! I got help from so many people inluding my MOH sister and TheChicBride. **SIGH** Cur-sed huge size 11 boats that I inherited.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, after much deliberation and going back and forth...let me introduce you shoes.

I plan on blinging out the heel.  I'm not 1000% sure I will wear these beauties on W-Day but I love the color. I will update with pics when they arrive!!!



I've blinged out ONE heel. It took me about 2 days (not non-stop but you know). I still have one to go. But check it out!!
