Around here

Still on jury duty, still living in an apartment that looks like a wedding exploded, still not doing any grocery shopping. Basically, it's a routine.

I realize that our cake topper is currently polygamous - I couldn't choose between the two men and I decided that whoever gets rejected will still be a worthy addition to our current collection. The lady was chosen because her boobs were the least scary of all the options I saw. She'll be getting a veil replacement.

I've always loved those fringey streamers from Jordan, and we're currently thinking they'll get deployed in a couple of places. We have a few little sore spots at the venue that could use coverage. These are super easy to make.

There will be more on the tablecloths later, but we're both really happy with how they're turning out.


  1. those tablecloths look awesome. hope the craziness ends soon!

  2. Oh my goodness.... the tablecloths! Soooo pretty. xo.

  3. Love the tablecloths. Based on what I've seen here, I think the wedding is going to be fabulous! (You didn't ask, but I'd choose the groom on the left with the cane - seems a bit more dapper. For a skeleton, anyway. ;-)

  4. I just love the Cake Toppers!! Theme? Dia de los Muertos??

  5. I agree with Mary. I also prefer the hat on that groom. But, they're both cute ;)
