Questionable Content: New comics every Monday through Friday

http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2999

This morning, the hubs and me were catching up on our various interests when he passed his phone to me. “Here, this is you.”

Did I ever mention my previous blog was called “Hidden Depths”?

I’m a PROcrastinator…

My husband proved he’s can foil my attempts at procrastination when he remotely accessed his computer to block me from watching a video. I had shut my computer down to prevent myself from easily using it, but Jeff’s was available!!

Until it wasn’t.

Lol

The funny thing is that this was just coincidence. He didn’t realize I was on his computer until I closed a window he opened.  I didn’t realize he was on his computer until he opened NotePad and told me to stop, lol

Unboxing: Dan Bergh Videography

Psst… Guys! I have something very special to share with you…

Unbox1

That’s right!! It’s an unboxing from Dan Bergh Videography!  Jeff and I did not do a rush order on our wedding video after all… So we had to wait a grueling six weeks for the videos to show up.  Man oh man, though.. it was worth the wait.

Dan was in touch with us via e-mail to keep us posted on the progress of the video–which was such a good thing since we were right in the midst of a move when he was supposed to be mailing it to us.  We got a flat mailer just a couple weeks ago and when I opened it up there was magic inside.. Oh, and:

– Business cards (smart move, but I think I lost them already.. oops :-x)
– A jump drive with all the footage
– 3 DVDs with the city in the background and our rings in the foreground
– 2 DVDs with a portrait of Jeff and I imprinted on the disc
– 1 DVD in a very fine case, personalized 100% inside and out:

On each disc is a fantastically edited highlight reel of our wedding day as well as the raw footage covering the entire ceremony…. Wow. 6 Discs total means that we can definitely share our favorite moments with friends and family far and wide, even if they don’t have internet access.  It’s just completely heart-warming.  We are so thrilled with the work that Dan did.  He was great to be around and work with on our wedding day.  His camaraderie with our photographer  just lightened every mood and made it feel like we were just hanging out with friends instead of being filmed all day.

Without further adieu…. Our wedding video:

Crunch Time: (not abs)

So, we’re really heading into “crunch time” for the wedding and things are heating up at work, too.  There are 7 weeks left until the wedding and a lot of loose ends are getting wrapped up.  Jeff’s parents came to visit over the weekend recently and we had a wedding shower (hosted by my lovely sister and my equally awesome Grandma) to celebrate.

Wedding Shower Gifts

There are lots of pics I WISH I could’ve taken, but I did not have my camera and the available photos are mostly focused on myself and Jeff.  We did get a few great shots, though, thanks for my friend and bridesmaid Gloria, and Jeff’s Mom Sarah:

We got our invitations mailed out weeks ago and I think people have had a chance to appreciate their beauty before we posted them online… check ’em out:

The damask pattern was really pretty and doing the printing in black ink really helped us save on costs.  It’s a delight to check the mail these days in the hopes of receiving another RSVP.

We’re using Google Drive to manage our guest list, vendors, gifts, and everything.  It’s been really handy to have everything in one spot online–I was able to make a new tab and move folks over to that tab and share it with my sister so that she could get the invites out for the shower.

I just took a look at the spreadsheet and realized that so far we’ve got

If you’re planning a big event and coordinating with people that may not be local, I highly suggest using a data system such as Google Drive to keep it organized.  My sister liked the idea so much that she has her guest list imported now, too.  Since she moved out of state, this will be a great way for us to keep in touch and coordinate about all the goings-on.

I’ve also been wrapping up a lot of the other details for the wedding, like crafting these adorable bookmarks and getting the vendors all squared away as far as a payment plan goes:

I had one of my last dress fittings before the wedding on Friday and it’s going to be pretty close.  I need to drop at LEAST five pounds before the wedding, more if at all humanly possible.  That means any and all stress eating needs to go out the window.

Maybe I’ll de-stress by gaming instead, now that I’ve got my rig back up and running… If you play GW2, look me up 🙂 I’m in JQ and my sn is Aminarra Westin.
