The invitations...

Hopefully everyone has received their invitations. It has been a slightly frustrating week as we keep receiving more invitations with the wrong addresses (sad!). So for those that are wondering - yes you are invited and it should get to you any day now!! And if it gets lost in the mail - you can now see them below!

If you remember the stamps I wrote about here, they took forever to put on - but I absolutely loved the result! There were a couple of different set ups - depending on the recipient. Family and friends in MN and TX received their statehood stamps. I sent most of the Georgians the statehood and water conservation stamp as a joke! And most golfers received the Bobby Jones stamp!

Jenny Thompson Sciullo originally designed the invitations however they were too hard to Gocco. Brandon Watkins helped me redesign them to make it easier to gocco. He was wonderful as I put him through so much because I couldn't decide what I wanted. I think they turned out great though!! If you don't know what the Gocco is - see below! You have to basically print it screen by screen - wait for everything to dry and then print the next image. Below is the first image for the invitation.

He was incredibly helpful! I had these prints all over the house trying to dry them!

The simplicity of the invitations were modeled after Mrs. Penguin's on!

I purchased a stamp from Sweet Papery on etsy and loved how it looked on the back of the invitations! I hate that I have to 'ruin' the entire design!

My best friend - Mrs DPT wrote all the invitations! I love her handwriting - so simple and beautiful. I hate that I have to also cross out some of her writing - but I am sure some people would appreciate a little privacy!

All in all - I loved the entire process! It took me a while - but I am proud of them and learning a new craft - Gocco here we go!

Allianz Love...

I had no idea that I was getting a shower from my company. I mean - you always hope they think enough of you to have a party for you - but you never assume. So to admit that I was completely surprised and floored when I walked in to a party - it a complete understatement.

Dave and I went out to get pizza for the office for lunch and when we got back the conference doors were closed. Immediately curious - but not suspicious - I asked where to put the food since our usual place was occupied. Phil, my boss, walked around the corner and said - in the conference room! Even more confused - I just looked at him. And he swung open the doors and everyone yelled surprise! I just had this cheesy smile on my face and when I walked in and spied my future husband, I just kept on grinning!

My office is absolutely amazing and I loved every little detail that they thought of!
I had a great time and it was an awesome party!

A little loving from EMC

This past Friday, we drove to Birmingham to the open arms of Jt's Office! They generously through us our first shower and it was quite exciting!

We were a little nervous because (a) We were late due to traffic/construction (b) I was meeting most of the office for the first time and (c) because we knew all eyes would be on us! And we both are a little intimidated of actually being in front of a big crowd. Don't get me wrong - we are as boisterous as they come - with the people we know!

They catered yummy BBQ (J's favorite) and the cake was absolutely divine! Loved the matching colors too! Also loved Amanda's pasta salad - it was delicious - I want that recipe! Everyone was so nice and welcoming! I was really excited to meet everyone that I hear J talk about -- it was a lot of fun!I just wanted to thank everyone again for taking the time out of your day to celebrate with us this special event. Even those that don't know us that well - it was very nice! And thank you Anna and Tom for coordinating everything - we had a great time!!
