just because

Bridal Party!

My pal/bridesmaid/roommate Alexis threw the greatest bridal shower for me yesterday!

We sat in the sun by a calf in University Village.

It started with my favorite cupcakes from Trophy.

Then we played bingo on the hand drawn bingo cards she made. My mom won!

She even made special wheat free "cupcakes" for my mom.

Then we painted pottery.

Drinking coffee at my house next year will be the best!

I'm so excited to see them once they've been in the kiln.

Thanks girls!!!

I'm am officially bridal showered and ready to get married.

Thank you Nole for putting up our Save the Dates on your blog Oh So Beautiful Paper.

Fun Wedding

Here's the link to a full fledged carnival wedding. I say, if you're going to spend the big bucks, you might as well have a ferris wheel! I really like the picture of the bridesmaids with balloons.

Finally! We did it. I'm so excited that I had to post something. 73 envelops are sitting in my mailbox to be picked up this afternoon and 10 more will be on their way soon once we check addresses.

Nick and I are both going to weddings today. Nick's in Temecula wearing a Tuxedo and I'll be in Issaquah wearing whatever I want.

Wedding party invites

Here's parts of what my bridesmaid/maid of honor ladies got when I asked them.

We were pleasantly surprised...

About a month ago, our officiant/Deputy for a Day and good friend James sent us a package including:

1. A very nice letter with his thoughts about our relationship, both Nick and I and us with him. We're so happy that he said he would marry us. When we thought of asking a friend, it made perfect sense to both of us to ask James. I think he's one of the best humans I've ever known. He's perfect for the job since he's fun, but also intelligent and thoughtful.

2. A date-night debit card from with a picture of us on it.

3. Self-counseling books: We've decided that Nick will handle taking out the trash as long as I make the bed. I'm still working on getting him to always make me lunch with a note. Maybe I just need my mom to be around more often.

4. Links to videos about Joey marrying our good friends Monica and Chandler.
