Wedding vs. Christmas

If it was a competition the wedding would be winning. I still have zero presents ready to go for Christmas, you read that right ZERO. Instead I have been working on wedding related stuff. The church we originally wanted fell through, so I’ve been busy looking into other ones, and have a bunch to check out tomorrow, so I have to head up to Portland again. Our save the dates are almost all done, I mailed out a huge batch yesterday:

People (who shall remain nameless) have questioned whether people will open them because they might be mistaken for junk mail. All I have to say about that is: I know where you sleep mom! The actual cards are designed by Sciarrino and are beautiful, but to save money I printed them all on my laser, and then Sciarrino and I cut all the pieces out. And there are a lot of pieces:

Not only that, but of course being me, I had to type the return address and our wedding website on the back of each envelope. Then I also typed addresses on a separate sheet (that I also had to cut) to stick in the envelope and show through the little window. And on top of all of that as soon as they went out I had to do something else:

Note the updates ticket. So I had to design a quickie blog (it’s here, though we haven’t done much). I did make a header for the site:

Which Bj hasn’t had time to put up. Which brings me to another problem. I have begun a transformation much like that of a caterpillar to a butterfly, only instead of a butterfly I’m turning into a nasty ass moth who is going to eat all your yarn (and maybe your sole). That’s right I’m becoming bitchy bride Amber. I have been working non stop on this thing and it’s starting to get to me. Bj said he didn’t have time to do anything and I flipped, and I mean FLIPPED out on him. I freaking stayed up until 3:45 AM to work on these things, that’s not exactly what I would call good quality free time. He still hasn’t given me any addresses, but whatever dude, I am getting my side out because I’m stressing out. And yes he reads this blog, but honestly I think he only looks at the pictures, I guess we will see.

  2. breathe, Amber, breathe…
    It’s good to see you can laugh about all of it. You are laughing, aren’t you?
    Just don’t turn into Bridezilla. That’s fun for NO ONE.
    Just breathe and look at the ring…
    then look at the ring again.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. Dude. Good luck with that. 🙂
    I made Josh drive me to Bridalvail Falls so that the invitations could be hand cancelled with a special “wedding” cancelation that they only do once a year.
    Yeah. LOL
