44 Days & Oh How Pinteresting Wednesdays!

44 days people.....FORTY-FOUR FREAKING DAYS!!!

I am so excited I can't even stand it!

The stress is finally starting to subside and in it's place is pure excitement!!

Last night M and I were talking over cocktails at one of our favorite restaurants....

....we were saying that we can't wait until the moment when we have gotten to the airport.....checked our bags.....gone through security and can finally sit down, exhale and begin our honeymoon to California and Hawaii! What an amazing feeling that is going to be!!! There is so much going on right now with wedding planning that a vacation is going to be necessary!

In other news I finally started working on one of my DIY wedding crafts.....
About 45 irritated groans, some profanity and several ripped pieces of paper later I came up with these.....

Monogrammed Wedding Straws for Cocktail Hour:)

What do you guys think?? I created our wedding logo and have been stamping it on EVERYTHING! I love when things are all matchy-matchy and I've turned this wedding reception into a brand - that's what you get for working in the graphic design field I guess!

We also hung up our new sign that my sister, Brittney gave me as a bridal shower gift!

A little premature....I know, but I couldn't resist hanging it 44 days early:) Looks cute, right??

Time to link up with Michelle from the Vintage Apple for Oh How Pinteresting Wednesdays!
