bridesmaid cards

I finally got around to designing my bridesmaid cards this week. Since asking your wedding party to be part of your special day by phone is "so 1985" I decided to send cute little cards to the girls...

I love little DIY projects :)



one year

A year ago today, we didn't have Rocco. What did we ever do without him?

A year ago today, I wasn't engaged to my best friend. I definitely knew I wanted to be though :)

A year ago today, I wasn't an alumni of the Disney College Program. Little did I know I had some amazing people to meet and some wonderful memories to make.

A year ago today, I was eating Dominos and playing Mario Party. Thanks Facebook.

go madre, its your birthday

Last week was my dear mommy's birthday!

On the actual day we went to dinner at Marmalade Cafe which was both delicious and adorable.

The day after, a few of us headed to Universal Studios for the fun! The weather was perfect and the park wasn't very busy so it was awesome.

There isn't really much to say about either event so here are some pictures...

Sending out your wedding invitations is a process. A long, but fun and rewarding process! I am very excited to say that our wedding invitations have been sent and now I am patiently awaiting RSVP cards. (talk to me in September and patiently will most definitely be changed to not-so-patiently)

I am so happy with the way they turned out. We wanted a fun, casual feel to them that fit the relaxed vibe of our destination wedding.

What do you think?

(removed our last names obviously)

I also helped my mom design the invitations for my bridal shower...

(again, last names and phone numbers have been removed :D)

Need invites for anything? I would love to help you design them!




I have joined the smart-phone world!

I feel like no other words need to be written.
Me and my Nexus S are totally smitten.
It's almost as cute and cuddly as a kitten.
(not really)
By the phone love bug, I have definitely been bitten.




Everything has a place. Or at least it should...

I've been bitten by the organization bug. I've actually had the itch for a while.Maybe it's because I'm spending too much time on Pinterest looking at the crazy beautiful, creative, enviable spaces that have been posted. Maybe because I am getting older I am learning to enjoy a more simplistic being.

Or maybe I'm looking too far into it and I just have too much stuff.

Yes, my organization obsession is most likely because of the last reason. Three people live in this apartment -- aged 23, 22 and 20. Add us all together and we have 65 years worth of stuff (potentially)! Obviously, we didn't bring everything we have ever owned into this apartment. And quite honestly, as the only female in apartment 90, I know that I am the biggest "stuff" contributor and that is why I have decided that I need to be the designated de-clutter-er.

I don't think our apartment is too small. I don't think it is hoarder-status. But I do think that when it comes to cleaning stuff out and getting rid of things, I am way too quick to think of reasons why we might need it in the future.

So right now I pledge to you dear bloggosphere... I promise to become a better organizer. To go through my belongings and donate what I no longer need. To keep my apartment clutter-free. And to make sure everything has a place.
