Hmmm. Have I revealed this yet?
I am a teacher.
An excessively bookworm-y teacher. Books were my first love as a kid, and now I’ve become a teacher who loves introducing classic, innovative, and/or hilarious books to my kids. I also love making books with my students. Flap books, lap books, accordion books, tab books, shape books…they are so fun to create, and they can be a keepsake of a unit of study!
I’ve assembled hundreds of them, so I wonder, what would be 200 more? Only these 200 books would be used for our wedding! Here are some book-like invitations from Zenadia Design that I admire:
Probably once a week, I dream about recreating the following invitation book.
The booklets below are wedding programs! I’m planning to make booklets like these, but blank inside, as end-of-the-year gifts for my students. Maybe I’ll make a few hundred extra for the wedding. 🙂
Who needs TV when I have wedding blogs?
While channel-surfing through wedding sites a few months back, I came across some HUGE invitations. I love this idea! According to what I’ve seen so far, here are the makings of the perfect, ginormous wedding invitation:
- All of the info normally found on invites (names, times, places).
- A rockin’ concert-poster design.
Sounds do-able! I’d love to have one displayed at my wedding for people to sign. Here’s an example from Weddingbee:
I don’t think this is the style I’d prefer for my wedding, but I can definitely appreciate the creative design and the humongous-ness!
When Adam and I first started dating, he introduced me to a site called Woot. He checks the site for their daily deals on techie things. He’s also a fan of their shirts, which are created by the Woot community. He started buying me shirts whenever they reminded him of me, and now I have a collection of cute and funny T’s.
My favorites, of course, are the bunny shirts! Adam bought me the following shirts:
We both have the following shirt! And yes, I once asked him to wear it on a day I was wearing it.
And we didn’t purchase the following shirt, but I think it represents us pretty well! The bunny to the right would be Adam, who loves steak and bacon and all other forms of meaty man-candy. On the left would be his sister, dad, my sis-in-law, and me…all vegetarians! 🙂
Love it! If you want your own hilarious, super-cute shirts, stop by Woot and have look around!
I adore our engagement pictures. Here are more fun shots taken by the kind and talented hannahelaine of hannahelaine photography.
We had so much fun shivering, jumping, laughing, and dancing in the city. I wonder if a city wedding could be in our near future…
Last month, Adam and I met with an amazing photographer from Nashville named hannahelaine. She was an answer to many hopes and prayers! I wanted (yearned and ached for) engagement pictures but was having trouble convincing Adam that it’s perfectly normal to take these shots and actually quite common. I wanted a fabulous photographer but had no idea how to find one. Either divine providence or my addiction to wedding blogs led me to find her on Weddingbee, my favorite wedding site of all time. I also wanted photographs that thrill and delight. 🙂 We have a zillion pictures together, so I wanted our e-pix to be extraordinary!
And thanks to hannahelaine, I believe they were.
More e-pix are coming this way soon!
Last weekend was Easter Sunday! I love everything about Easter. I love the history; I love the bunnies and chicks everywhere you look; I love the eggs with surprises inside!
My family never had Easter eggs or Easter baskets. My brother and I took a picture with the Easter Bunny once (we looked terrified), but that’s about as close as our Korean family came to celebrating it American-style.
As I grew older, I loved learning about other people’s Easter traditions. Easter egg hunts sounded like SO MUCH FUN, and what kind of genius came up with chocolate bunnies? Last year, I was on a crafting-blog kick and came across another stroke of Easter genius…
Secret Pocket Easter Eggs from Sew, Mama, Sew
The wonder behind these reusable Easter treats posted her pattern and instructions, too! I wonder if I could make these work as wedding favors…
I should have known that once I started looking, I’d fall in love with a dozen wedding dresses. I just love things that are pretty, and wedding dresses are sooooo pretty. Here are more styles that I adore:
Oh la la~ So much to choose from! I’m getting eager to start trying some on. 😉
My future mother-in-law is shocked that I haven’t gone shopping for wedding dresses yet! I have several reasons for this:
- I don’t know when or where the wedding will be.
- I want to go with my mom, but she lives in Florida.
- I’m thinking of wearing the dress I wore to prom. Is that crazy?
Late last night, I began an innocent search. I decided to save all the dresses that I immediately liked and try to narrow down my taste and style. I started at Jim Hjelm, because I fell in love with this dress a while ago:
Before I knew it, I was saving dresses left and right! For example:
These are all so gorgeous. I’ll share more of my finds with you tomorrow!
Get ready to say, “Aww.”
And this concludes today’s Sunday Bunday. 🙂
And I’m not just talking about my fiance ;D
I love HOT colors…namely, hot pink! It makes me feel happy and bright whenever I see it, and super-saucy whenever I wear it.
I always wanted bright pink at my wedding but originally got a veto from Adam. Then I started suggesting a cheery, citrus-y color palette: grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, and orange. To my delight, he loved it!
Just to be clear, there are no pastels allowed. Only super-bright, HOT pinks, yellows, and oranges. Is it just me, or do these colors just feel happy together??
Le sigh, I love it all! Could these be the colors to end all my color-palette-searching? We’ll just have to wait and see!
