So we had a baby.

So we got married. And had a baby. And bought a house. And now we're having another one (a baby that is.) in 16 days (or less). all in a little over two years! I'm sure no one but me reads these posts anyway but I decided this is a good place to "memory keep" so I'm back! 

We got married in May 2013 and Elodie Jean was born in June 2014. She's perfect (of course). Our little boy is due any day and I'm freaking out a tiny bit. Two babies 😳. 

Elodie is 12 months and it's my favorite age so far. Even though I think they have all been my favorite. She babbles non stop from the moment she wakes up with her feet in my face ( yes we cosleep- kind of) until she passes out at night. Her leg rolls have reached the maximum amount of chunkiness and her hair is starting to curl up in the back. She's pretty amazing.

update- May

wow its been over 6 months since I've blogged anything here. I originally started this as a digital memory keeper but I have slacked off horribly. Now that we're expecting in June I feel like I should start back up since everyone says the 1st year flies by. I want to remember every second.

May- we got married!! The most hectic, stressful, and beautiful month of my life.

we went wedding boot shopping
found the cutest gifts for our flower girls

picked up our rings (!!)

Our invitations

Choosing our wedding invitations caused me the most frustration out of all the wedding planning. I was against making our own because I didn't want the added stress but after comparing costs we decided to go with designing and printing our own. I think they turned out pretty cute. {full list of items used below}

this silver twine took too long to wrap so i switched to AC ribbon

envelopes were full of loose confetti as well

I hand stamped our address and hand wrote our names in white ink

What we used:

printer: Epson Workforce 545 It fed through the tiny RSVP cards and prints photos really well too. I love that its wireless, and you can print from your phone. Also you can buy each ink color separately.

all paper and envelopes were purchased from Paper Source: A7 Envelopes in fuchsia, A7 note cards in eco-white,  4 Bar envelopes in fuchsia, 4 Bar note cards in gravel, oval labels in fuchsia

also from paper source: Uniball white gel pens and the glassine envelopes we used for confetti

our confetti was from Walmart (sold around Easter)

I used multiple washi tapes: Freckled Fawn Arrow Washi, Freckled Fawn  Red Heart Line Washi, October Afternoon Celebrate tape, and a few from Target

for RSVP envelopes i used this make your own stamp from Staples, and Colorbox frost white ink pad.

vintage seed packet forever stamps (I wish these Johnny Cash stamps would have been out 3 months ago!)

Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Ribbon

Tim Holtz tiny attatcher

graphics: Arrows by The Ardent Sparrow, Serendipity alpha by CD Muckosky
