wedding program party

On Tuesday some of my bridesmaids met me at my parents’ to help me assemble our wedding programs.  I am totally enamored with our programs.  Ellie at Hello Tenfold designed them for me and they are just gorgeous, everything I wanted.  It’s always hard for me to choose between beautiful things and Ellie made it easy by offering to make four different program covers.  They are all beautiful and she was so great to work with.  If you’re in the market for beautiful stationery, I’d highly recommend her.

It was really nice to get together with the girls.  Not all of my bridesmaids know each other really well since I know them from different parts of my life (family, high school, college) so it’s nice when we all spend time together.  Of course we ate as we worked and enjoyed some pizza and a plate of the oatmeal chocolate chunk toffee cookies I made on Sunday.

We got everything set up and went to work tying the programs together.  Look at all of these colors together, so pretty!

My friends, Pam, Jennie and Jennifer were such fast workers that it barely took us any time at all.

By the time my parents came home we were done.  I’m so grateful for their help, it would have taken me ages alone!

Thanks again for helping bridesmaids and thanks to Ellie for your gorgeous work!

After work the snow had cleared and I was happy to walk out into a beautiful spring day.

I headed over to Biggby Coffee where I had a great meeting with our wedding photographer, Theresa Kemink, talented owner of TAK Photography.  She does such great work and I’m so excited that she’s shooting our big day.  Her photos are amazing but she doesn’t seem to take her self too seriously.  You should really check out her blog, it’s good stuff.

After the meeting I headed to the Funky Buddha for a very sweaty and intense power yoga class.  I definitely sweated out some toxins today although my tummy wasn’t feeling to great because I had a snack beforehand.  Note to self: no matter how much I love chocolate chip cookies and lemonade, they must wait until after hot yoga.

Delicious but dangerous.

Anyways, other than that I was going to write a post about…something but I don’t feel like I have much to say right now.  Thankfully, other bloggers seem to be much more inspired that I am so I’ll refer you to them.

1) Kelly at Laughter, Food and Strength, one of my favorites, posted a recipe for Mini Italian Frittatas today.  I want to make these right now and would if I had the energy, and the eggs.  But honestly, I often think bloggers make things that look delicious but I know that I’ll never make them but these frittatas are going directly to my “to-make” list.  Yum!

2) Jess at In My Healthy Opinion seems to be on the same page as me a lot, it’s kind of strange, actually.  She’s got some great simple goals posted and they’re exactly the things I always mean to work on.  Soon though, soon.  Even better, she’s posted a link to a hilarious site featuring the 65 Sketchiest Easter Bunny photos.  My favorites are numbers 28, 45 and 53.  Hilarious.  Thanks for sharing, Jess!

3) I discovered Girl Meets Life over the weekend and I’m loving it. Her tagline is “celebrating the simple things”, a concept I can definitely get behind.  I get really excited about the little things so I can totally relate.

4) Allie at Live, Laugh, Eat wrote an entire post about pineapple.  Pineapple is hands down my favorite fruit (sorry grapefruit) and I think it makes everything taste better and makes me smile.  Sometimes I overdo it and it gives me canker sores too but I always go back to it.  I respect any blogger who posts all about pineapple, plus she seems great and is darn cute.

In short, thank you other bloggers for being great so I don’t have to be!
