Save the Date!

Yay for Wedding Wednesday, even if it is Halloween!
I pretty much spoiled this post yesterday when I posted my instagram picture of what Hurricane Sandy did to Tyler's parent's mail!

Last week I finally sent out all of the Save the Dates, and I must say... I am very proud!
I decided to go with a magnet because I think they are so practical. I feel like I also lose invitations or other save the dates get lost or fall of the fridge! I thought I was being really creative when I picked a magnet, because I hadn't seen many people at home (SC) who had done them, just lots of friends in IL. Looks like someone beat me to the punch, but I am still very excited about them / scared that my face is plastered on dozens and dozens of refrigerators. That's scary stuff! It.Is.REAL!
Without further ado (I had to google this and check this phrase haha)... here are our STDs! (Ha, Emily, can't not think about you when I say that! )

Yay! I found this design on Vistaprint, and improvised a little with the sizes and font of the text.
Also, all of the engagement announcements made it in the paper over the weekend!
You can view them here at The Times and Democrat and The State!
Did you do paper announcements? These were seriously a pain! Each newspaper has its own way of printing them and using their forms! And they aren't cheap!
Things are coming along and I am so very glad to have this weight lifted off of my shoulders.
Speaking of shoulders, I got back in my Tuesday morning weight lifting routine. I am going to get these arms looking GOOD. Our instructor kept pushing me saying "wedding arms! wedding arms!" Yikes. And hopefully I can really stick to weight watchers. I was doing great at first, then got in this rut I was talking about on Monday.
Anyway, what do you think!? What did you do for your Save the Dates?
Ta ta,
