Firsts and Finisheds

Sorry I've been posting so little.  Work has been cuh-razy the past two weeks, and when you add wedding tasks and attempting to have a social life into the mix it doesn't leave you with much time for blogging.  So here I am, eating my lunch at my desk, squeaking in a blog post.

As I mentioned in my previous post, we mailed out our invitations this past Friday, and our first RSVPs have started to roll in!

Here's the proof!  We have 6 confirmed attendees woot woot!  Please note the care with which I redacted the sensivite information. :)

Yesterday, our first wedding gift arrived!  The Mister found it on our doorstep when he got home from work around 5:45 p.m., and called me right away to tell me and we decided that he would wait for me to get home to open it.  I had to attend a public meeting for one of our clients that started at 6 p.m. and was an hour away from where we live.  These meetings typically run about an hour so I thought I'd be home by 8.  Well, this particular meeting ran 4 hours long and I didn't get home until 11 p.m.  The Mister stayed up and waited for me to open the gift even though I told him he didn't have to wait up and could open the gift without me.  Awww...

A KITCHEN AID MIXER!!!!   It was from my grandparents who live in Florida and can't make it to the wedding.  Sorry for the poor picture quality.  It was 11 p.m. and I wasn't about to bust out anything other than my Blackberry to take a picture.

And now, the finisheds.  Well, it's really only one thing that has been finished since I last posted.  I printed out our paper napkin rings and with some help from the Mister we got all of them done in 3 days!  That's acutally 100 napkins, even though it looks way smaller. 

I adhered to the KISS philosophy on this project.  I considered more detailed napkin rings but I just didn't think it was worth the effort to do anything other than a simple paper napkin ring with our names and wedding date printed on it.

Ooo a Kichen Aid Mixer! We registered for one of those too :) Your napkin rings look really pretty--I've adopted a KISS philosophy for our DIY projects too.

Yeah I always start off with KISS in my head but somehow the DIY fairy whispers into my air and i'm off to more complicated and ultimately frustrating projects.

Great gift. I want one too but for some reason didn't register for it.

I was THRILLED when we got Kitchen Aid at the shower in Philly- just waiting for the kitchen renovations to be done before I set it up... can not wait!!

I was CERTAIN my Mom or Aunt would buy our mixer but neither did. Bummer.

The napkins look suuuper cute though. Good job!
