Gifts, Guestbook, and a huGe check
We received another gift! This wedding is starting to get close! My cousin, Emily (who is getting married in July), gave us a cheeseboard!
Oh yeah, I totally wrote that in a wedding card to my friend, Kirsten. She laughed!
And speaking of wedding gifts, remember when Linda gave us plates to enjoy a romantic dinner on? We used them the other night! I know that you are not supposed to use your wedding gifts until after the wedding, but she purposefully gave them to use to enjoy. So I picked up some chicken and mozzarella ravioli at BJ’s and enjoyed a quick, tasty dinner.
I bulked mine up with some greenery. Matt didn’t want any!
I also received our guestbook from Shutterfly. Along with our free Christmas cards, I received a 20% off photobook. I took advantage and made a photo guest book. It is a 12×12 book with 20 pages (and 126 lines for people to sign). I’m pretty excited about it.
What do you think?
And finally a HUGE CHECK! WE BOOKED OUR HONEYMOON!! We will be going to Hawaii (Oahu and Maui). At first we tried booking through Expedia, but we found better deals on the hotel and airline websites. It actually saved us $3500 from the original (INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE) package presented through Expedia. We are so excited, because we are staying at amazing places and hopefully seeing incredible scenery for a full 11 days!
Have you ever been to Hawaii? What are your recommendations for activities?
And finally, randomness. So I’d like to wear white to our pre-wedding festivities, because, I mean, when else can I do that? But I didn’t want to buy a bunch of white clothes. Luckily, I remembered that I had a white dress from my high school graduation. After digging through a “play clothes” box full of old dance costumes, I found it!
IT STILL FITS! I guess when I’m feeling down about myself, I should remember that I haven’t changed shape TOO much since high school. Actually, I’m only about 10-15 lbs more than high school, and my chest size hasn’t really changed. It’s my waist that changes.
Anyway, guess what else was in the “play clothes” box?
MY GRAETER’S APRON! (That’s where I worked in high school.) I’m not sure if I was supposed to turn it back in, but whatever!
So I had a great, productive wedding weekend!
