hehehe that titles makes me giggle...and kind of grimace too! For those of you not up on the wedding lingo that's Save The Date :) don't you feel a little better about reading further into this blog LOL

So Jake and I had pretty much decided NOT to do STD's...its really just an extra cost isnt it? unless you are someone who has alot of OOT (OUT OF TOWN..for the wedding lingo impaired) guests. However i ran across this adorable STD/Christmas card on etsy and since we send out Christmas cards every year anyway we decided this was perfect! We can have STD and technically save money because its doubling as our Christmas card this year! Here is the final product!
Cute Right?
The BEST part? I got 75 of these puppies including shipping for $6.22! yup! I simply edited them in, ordered them as prints from snapfish and with the code PENNYNOV I got each print for a penny a piece! woohoo!!! I cant wait to send these cuties out!:)

Bridesmaids attire

 We have found our Bridesmaid dress! When I started Bridesmaid dress shopping I knew I wanted 4 things: First off I did not want a "normal" bridesmaids dress (you know what I mean. the stiff material that you will NEVER wear again) I wanted a beautiful shade of blue, flowy material and I wanted a belted dress. I wasn't sure I would ever find it! After searching through 283,363,827 dresses I came across this beauty
and this is what it looked like when I took Erin and Tracy to try it on!

(these were a size or two too big, but all they had in store)

Today I get a message from one of my girls that the dress has gone on sale for 58$! My last three bridesmaids ordered it today at the sale price (yay) and the bridesmaids who already had paid full price were able to call Customer Service and get the difference credited back to their account! I am sooo excited that my girls are getting their Bridesmaid dresses for such a great deal!  Now to find the accessories!:)
