08 September 2009 - 06:24 PM

Great news for all of the Canadian girls looking for bubba kegs!! CT has them on sale this week (sale ends Thursday) for half price on ALL sizes!!

We have been watching the flyers since April and this is the first time I've seen the 20 oz (mini) bubba kegs on sale in months. The store also told me the last time they were on sale was at the beginning of March...so...if you're planning to get these in the next 6 months...you may want to stock up now!!

Font size to use in Vistaprint brochures ???

06 September 2009 - 04:43 PM

If you did a wedding brochure with Vistaprint...what font size did you use? What font is too small? I have so much text and information to put in that I keep changing the font and it keeps getting smaller and smaller. Any tips? Did you use an 8 font and did it turn out okay?

Our "first" fight over wedding projects

26 August 2009 - 11:51 AM

I just really need to share...

I have been spending endless hours on wedding planning and many DIY projects. All of which I love because I am "that girl" and wouldn't have it any other way. No complaints.

Although my FI has been watching me as I go along with all of this...I don't think he was really aware of how much I had on the go until now...because it's done and all ready to be put together.

SO...now he is excited and ready to be involved which is wonderful...or so I thought!!

In my head...I've always had a "plan" of how things need to go...and I do admit that I am fairly stubborn. Since I've been doing this by myself for months...my stubborness doesn't seem like it would be a problem. Enter FI...

Last week he starts folding our Spanish guides...does about 5 (out of 30) and decides that is enough for him for the day. Two nights ago he starts putting luggage tags together complete with the inserts and straps...but needs to take a few breaks because "its alot of work". He also helped to do the stickers on the bubbles but made his and hers piles...so when he was done his pile...he was done...no helping with my pile. Last night he helps me cut out our boarding pass invitations and once again when he was done (but I wasn't done my pile yet)...that was it..."lets go" and "hurry" because we were on our way out for supper. All along he has been making comments such as "Wow...ok that's 2 hours of time that I've put into wedding crap now"...like he's making a tally of the hours and minutes he's contributed.

So...fast forward 3 hours...and now we're putting piles together of what needs to go into each persons OOT bag. I have ponytails of all different sizes and I seperate them into piles because I also know that I think I'm going to be short of the big thick ones...therefore they need to be given to the people with long thick hair...(I know, totally anal). FI says to put all the piles together and just start dropping a bunch in each OOT bag pile (totally NOT anal). I say no because they've gotta be done this way (with brief explanation). He gives it about a minute...then gets up and says "don't ask me to help out with any more wedding stuff EVER again"...and he's mad!

I know he sounds like such an a**...LOL...and he's really not...and I truly appreciate his help and the fact that he even wants to help...but man he is gettin' on my last nerve about all of this stuff!!!

Everything worked out...because an hour later we had our "talk" and he expressed that "my way" is not always the right way...LOL...so really I know that the issue wasn't the ponytails :)

OMG...fighting over ponytails!!! Can you believe it
