BIG NEWS!!!! (flashing lights and glitter!)



i have some totally rad news!

BIG news!

like, for real.




you guys (girls), this feels amazing.

remember how i got married, oh about 5 months ago?

and how i hand wrote thank you cards to everyone that bought us gifts?

and i thought it might be the death of me?

well, i didn't die!

and i am done done done!

k, word of advice:

always do a postcard thank you.
i didn't do this and it was a huge mistake.

with postcards you:
save on postage
don't have to insert, fold, and lick anything!

see this stack:

(and that's midge's head... she likes to be the center of things... she also chased my pen while i addressed many of these resulting in lots of scribbling.)

see the stack?  now times that by about    6    and that's how many i wrote.  yowza.

also, i've talked to like five girls who wrote all of their thank you notes, but never sent them?

crazy, yes?

sending them is the easiest part!


you guys, i'm just so happy right now.

ha i totally thought you were going to be prego!!! haha
ok this post makes me feel so guilty. and is another reason why we are the same person. well ok kinda. except for you are so much better. just this morning as i was getting ready, i was feeling seriously sooo bad that I NEVER SENT OUT MY THANK YOU CARDS! um folks. i got married one year and two and a half months ago! seriously i think im the worst person ever. the people who were so kind and generous to us are probably cursing my name. i hand did ours too and i only did like a quarter of them and then never finished! what should i do? send them now? so tacky a year later? or just not send them at all? which is worse? oh man i honestly feel sooo horrible!

I hated that part too - but luckily I did postcards. You didn't lick all of those envelopes did you? :)

Hahaha. Congrats!

jasmine said...

yay!!! congratulations!! i just finished my thank yous from my bridal shower & just doing that was exhausting. i also did all of the thank yous from our engagement gifts by myself. levi will be helping me with the ones for the wedding. post cards are also great because you don't have to write your return address a million times!

Dude, don't scare me like that! I totally thought you were going to say pregnant and were telling us all on your blog! I was thinking "man, really? they're telling us all on her blog?" haha good thing it was just the thank you cards!

Two years ago my aunt [mid 40's] found her box of completed thank you cards that were never sent [obviously]. Stamped and everything! What a waste of postage.

Grandma Kathleen said...

I too, thought you were announcing your pregnancy. oh well, we'll just have to wait for that one. congratulations on finishing your thank you cards! I never thought of postcards! what a great idea! love the picture with your kitty. she is so cute.

Gaa! Lucky girl! I've been married for almost 6 months and I am not done yet. I just can't find the excitement for it. You may have just inspired me to do some this weekend.
