The biggest blonde moment of my life

I am praying I am not the only human to have done this. You know those things that happen and you are just uncontrollably laughing at how….stupid you are? Welcome to the biggest blonde moment of my entire life.
Wedding planning is fun, right? 
All the lovely pictures you put on Pinterest going into action, right?! 
Unless you’re me, and you realize how poor you are and that your Pinterest board is a far off pigment of your imagination. Nonetheless, wedding planning IS getting done around here! This is the time of the planning process where you pick out invitations and mail them out to all your amazing guests. Apparently you’re supposed to order a million “sample” invitations and decide what ones you like. How many “samples” did I order? Oh you know, none. And apparently you’re supposed to hire a calligrapher. In the wise words of my soon to be husband, “you only hire those if you’re rich”. Touché future husband, touché. None the less, I found some wedding invitations online that I loved. And how did I decide which ones to pick do you ask? The coupon code they sent me! Okay, just kidding. (Kind of) 
Really though, the invitations we ordered are perfect in every way and I LOVE them. 
Now for the good part? Here I am in my head: “So we have 135 people on the guest list, so order a few more than that…so the option for 144 invitations would be enough.”….enough was an understatement. 
Silly little me didn’t take into account that 135 people included couples and families and invitations that were being sent to the SAME ADDRESS. Moral of the story? I ordered about 3/4 too many invitations. The upside? I still LOVE the invitations and we got an AWESOME deal on them! 

Okay okay, you can all laugh at me now. Because let’s be honest, i’m still dying laughing at my stupidity. HAHAHA. 
Am I the only person who has ever done this?! I really really hope not. 
So uh….if anyone wants a wedding invitation for you know….scrapbooking….or fire starter…or whatever, hit a girl up. 😉

Thank you for reading along in my absolutely stupidity. Feel free to judge me at any time. Hahaha.

Sometimes we’re really cute

I think my favorite part about “wedding planning” was taking our ‘Save the Date’ pictures! It truly reminded me how much I just LOVE M. We can be silly, and serious, and just be….in love! I kept looking at him and saying “I have no idea what i’m doing” and we would just laugh. I love that about him. I love that I don’t have to pretend to know what i’m doing, or pretend like i’m good at things. 
I was so excited to finally meet our photographer, who happens to be his cousin. Along with excited, I was a tad nervous. When he told me he “knew someone who took pictures” I was expecting someone who just owned a camera and took pictures for fun. Luckily, our photographer is AMAZING! She gave us direction and made us feel comfortable, which I loved and ultimately needed. This photo shoot reassured me that the photos of our wedding will be BEAUTIFUL! 
I am so in love with these pictures! 

(Remember this whole ‘I don’t know what i’m doing’ thing?!)

Sometimes we’re really cute. Wouldn’t you agree?! 😉
