Engagement Photos

February 13, 2010

I really wanted to wait until our Save the Dates went out until I posted our engagement photos for everyone to see. Here are just a few from our fun November day. Nick was so great and took us to various areas in the city including: West Loop, North Avenue Beach, The Exchange Building and Union Station.

Save The Dates

February 13, 2010

Our Save The Dates came in and they look great. We just sent out round 1 and plan to send out the rest in the next week.

We decided to go with Save the Date magnets when we compared costs to printing our own Save the Date Postcards. We found that it was just $15 -$20 more to have our STD’s on magnets, so we decided to use Vista Print and took advantage of there half off sale. Our total cost was $80 for 120 magnets approximately 4.25 x 5.5. We used envelopes from Staples, 100 for $8.99. Below are some images of the magnets and the envelopes. Another DIY job done and checked off the list.

Honeymoon ideas

January 10, 2010

In the beginning of our “honeymoon chat” we had different opinions on what would be the “ideal” vacation. He wanted an Alaskan expedition and I was thinking more Caribbean getaway. After searching the weather of both locations we realize neither one would work. Alaska is cold and raining and the Caribbean is going through hurricane season in September. After realizing both our first choice would not work in September we started brainstorming locations. Oddly enough, we both came up with the idea of Lake Tahoe and Yosemite Park. Nothing is planned, so if anyone has taken a visit and has suggestions please contact us.
