Quite Unique When Tweaked as an Invitation
I would totally do this, but I don't think that my guy or my family would be so keen on this.

I love this style. I think that I could plaster Linzie's work ALL over my house (ceilings and floors included, but not the windows - I like sunlight :)) and I would be the happiest camper in all of Phoenix.

Fun! Am I the only one who thinks this is a really unique and fun idea for an invitation? Our parents would probably kill us if we did something like this, huh? But do we care?? ;)

Totally Unrelated to Wedding Stuffs
QUILTING PEEPS!!!
I am sooooo into sewing again!

I know this is not a wedding post, I am sorry, but I am super duper fired up and cannot wait to start quilting again!!!!

I found a few really neat sewing/quilting blogs. Such good ideas and wow, I want to do some work nearly half as pretty as these ladies'!

I guess I could just label this stress relief! :) Gosh knows that we all need some of that! :)

Here's some of the sewing blogs I heart and in no particular order, I present:

Wedding Invitation
I Just Cannot Get Over How Rad This Part of Wedding Planning Is.
I love stationary.

I am not going to lie to you. No, I am not a graphic design artist therefore I am ridiculously uncreative. I am not artistic at all. My little brother got all the artistic-ness of our family, I got the stubborn/grumpy/bull-headed/type-A-ness. LUCKY ME!

Anyways, I am completely obsessing about Milk Maid Press right now.

Uhm.... can we say RADICAL stationary? It's soooo me. And.... in my world, radical = me. :) Go figure.

Oh, the price....
I don't know how other places stack up in regards to dolla' bills, but this is a bit spendy for me. $250 for 100.

Check it out. They're awesome, like I said.

Wedding Reception
Where's it Going To Be???
Has anyone else found that a super cool and hip place is said $$ and then all of a sudden, once 'wedding' is mentioned, $$ quickly becomes $$$$$? A-nnoying.

I love one venue in particular, but they want more money than I really can afford. I don't want to have to mislead them regarding the intent of the event......

Really, what could be worse than having the police called on your wedding reception because you have too many people on the property and the fire code is violated AND then there's some horribly angry small man shaking his fists at you?! Oh, I would just about have a heart attack because I would be so embarrassed... in front of my family!!!

How mean would I be if I asked my bridesmaids to wear these dresses...??

This is the one I wanted for Sara's wedding...
Beatuiful!
I just love chiffon...
Not for a wedding b/c the bride is the only gal who really should be wearing white, or is that a passe thing??
Swoon!

Something about the 1950's
That is Just So AWESOME!!
I am going to a wedding for one of my girlfriends in Las Vegas this weekend! FUN!

I wish I would have planned more ahead and had gotten a vintage dress......

This girl is really, really into vintage 1950's prom dresses.

SO COOL!

Wedding Reception
I Still Cannot Find a Place
It is both stressing and freaking me out.

I am having a hard time spending > $2500 on a place for me to have anywhere from 30-40 people just sit, maybe stand, quite possibly mingle around and ...wait for it..... maybe even talk to each other! Gasp!

I feel that because I am not keeping anything from this $2500 investment that maybe I should not be placing so much into this aspect of my wedding.

Then I read somewhere on some outstanding and novel blog that brides spend < 10k on their weddings. That's great, I want to do that!! Now how do I get there, well these ladies spend something like $1000 or $700 on their venue. Dang, I must be a wedding-venue-researching-moron or something b/c I cannot seem to find like-costing venues.

The point of this blog is that I found this really neat and historic home through Vacation Rental By Owner. WHAT A GREAT IDEA, you say! Yea, I thought the same thing when one of my co-workers popped the idea.

So I found this really neat spanish-style historic home in the Encanto-Palm-Croft historic district in Phoenix (RIGHT where I originally had wanted by buy a house, but the funds were lacking, still are for the most part) and it is only listed as $1500-$3000/week. YAY, I only would rent 4 days or so, so that would be sooooo much more affordable AND I could put my grandparents, parents, brother, Mike's parents, and his sister and her kidlets (young adults) up there. For FREE! I thought that would be nice, who wouldn't like to have a nice/free place to stay for a wedding?!?

Long story short, we have to go through a realtor. No one on this board knows of my disdain and recent irritation with my realtor, but I'm still a bit sore and frustrated with realtors (no offense to anyone who does not live in Phoenix). Well apparently this realtor is a big, dry-sensed-of-humor, meanie. After 3 painful and information-less conversations, it all of a sudden becomes the issue where we're not sure if we can handle a wedding at this house (the owner is stoked and is very supportive of my wedding at his house, so this is the realtor's decision, all on his own) AND it is going to cost $2500 for one day (oh really??? please use your super duper high pitched voice here).

So I am just about broken hearted.

The outdoor historic venue I first thought would work: No go.
The historic hotel, second place I could see working out: Also a No go.
Now this historic home I dearly love: WAY Out of my budget.

I hate to say it, but I'm over it. I just pretty much want to cry, throw my hands up in the air and say, 'Whatever'.

Come hell or high water, I am going to wear my dress. Mike and I will be married. I am going to be sad if my mom, dad, brother, and best friend are not here, but at the rate that I am planning it is just not going to work out the way I wanted.


I am beat down.

It's Hard To Be Positive
When It Seems Everyone Around You is Divorcing
So my best friend is finally separating from her husband. After 2 lovely children and 10 years. It has been very, very hard for me to watch her change from a beautiful, outgoing, fun-loving, caring, thoughful woman to the beautiful, introverted, and timid woman.
I am not being selfish, this girl will go without eating so that everyone else can eat and ALSO so that her husband can have his beer and chew.

I know.

ANYways, to make this blog positive, I am very excited for her, can't wait to see her blossom and become a happy person again. It's hard though because when we talk about my wedding, I feel selfish and horrible. She really wants to be involved and I just wish that this wasn't such akward timing for my friends .

One of my coworkers who has become a close-er friend, is supposedly leaving her husband of 2 years sometime soon. She is the Negative Nelly in my life right now.

She keeps telling me to get a pre-nup. Ugh. AND that married life isn't all that awesome, and that it's like having a grown-up child, and that all you are going to be is an ATM.....

Sometimes I feel the need to just shove a sock in her mouth, turn her 'round pieroette-style and just softly shove her by the shoulders telling her to 'Be Nice!' Ugh again....

Is anyone else have a Negative Nelly or a Debbie Downer?

I am trying to remain positive (not to the point that either of these gals find it nauseating though) for everyone - both girls who are soon-to-be single as well as for me. Running seems to help me remain positive, but not nauseatingly obnoxious :)

What About a Neon Sign Graveyard For an Engagement Photoshoot Location?
One of my girlfriends is getting married in Las Vegas the weekend of May 23rd - I am really excited for her!! I cannot wait for many reasons. The first being that I am originally from small town Nevada and then relocated to Reno. Vegas is not exactly Reno, but it is still Nevada and will be fun to go back to visit. AND because Vegas has a rad neon sign graveyard!

HOW great of a place to get engagement pictures taken at?

I don't know if it is really an option for me as my fiance is a dude's dude and is not really into the whole photo thing. He thinks that he is humoring me in having someone other than one of his car-club friends taking pictures of our wedding day.

What do you gals think of this place for a photoshoot?

Wedding Reception
Houston, We Have A Problem In the form of lack-of-communication
I have been attempting to get in touch with The Hotel San Carlos's event staff for over a month now... E-mails, phone messages, etc just don't seem to be cutting it. At least not for my mom.

haha!

She sent me an email on Monday that she had called the hotel and spoken with one of the ladies who works in events (not the director or the woman who has not been returning my emails/calls) and apparently this extra ball-room that The San Carlos USED to have an agreement with no longer have said agreement.

............long terribly akward pause......

Yes, it is a good thing that my mother called and got this information out of them, not me. My fiance laughed when I told him about the situation, he said, 'Good thing your mom called b/c you probably would have cussed them out and yelled at them.' At first I laughed it off, but he's probably right. I probably would have had some choice words for this woman..

It is terribly unprofessional not to return a work-related telephone call or email within 24-72 hours.

It is just the right thing to do. Let's grow up.

This place is a sounding board... a place to organize myself. No it will not be organized and yes I post my random ideas often.... and yes. I ramble. Alot. I love all things paper and fabric. I love type, print, font. I hope to incorporate this into our special day. I am working on not making my bridesmaids look like ginormous sunflowers
