Finally getting started

After much delay and thought going in to exactly what we want to have for everybody to feast their eyes on at the wedding, we finally got down and dirty and put our hands to work!

We started off our crafting binge last night with the process of cutting down some fabric to the proper size. It seemed like such a simple process for what we were planning to make (and it was really), but man, using a pair of scissors for any extended period of time starts to take it's toll on your hands! After much hand crampage (for lack of a better term), we finally had the finished product on our hands; some amazing mason jar votives (there will eventually be candles in these)!

I'd say these turned out great!

Tonight we hesitantly got started with DIY project #2, while still feeling the effects of those scissors from the night before. This was another very simple decoration, just somewhat time consuming getting all of the fabric ripped down to the strips that we needed. After lots of sweating while sitting out in the front yard getting everything cut down to size, we were both happy to get back in under the air conditioning to start putting everything together finally.

Wedding planning?!

As the realization of my new addition to my finger starts to set in, so do my wedding fears. I have been thinking about this moment in my life for years, and now that it is here I don't know where to start! How typical.

As of this moment, Tyler and I are hoping for a May wedding, and as most of you know, I'll also be graduating early May as well. Not to mention that I'll be doing all this planning while living in Riverside. AHH!

I'm not going to lie, I am honestly really excited to start the whole process and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it (as much as I can). If anyone knows any good photographers that are not extremely overpriced then I would love to hear from you! Actually, any suggestions for anything will be greatly appreciated. 

All in all, I'm just happy to be looking at my ring knowing that it's not a dream.
Cheesiness. Yay.

This picture was one of our first pictures taken together. I think I knew that we were perfect for each other by our weirdness and our inability to stop laughing. 

He fell asleep on Christmas. CHRISTMAS!
