21 & 22/50: Carrie & 13 Reasons Why

I've been slacking... June is a CRAZY month at work. I can't wait for July where I'll have plenty of downtime to read and lay out in the sun. Until then, here are the 2 books I read this month.

According to GoodReads, at my current pace, I'm two books behind. Since I'm driving back to Maryland for work tomorrow night, I'm hoping to get through at least half of an audiobook. I need to stay on track!

4 months! HOLY COW! - Brazilian Wedding Announcements

It's June 1st... we are officially four months away from our wedding day! It seriously flew by. I've been slowly chipping away at my DIY list and I'll be sure to keep you guys posted. I just realized I never show our Brazilian wedding announcements. Since our family is large and many can not fly out to our wedding, my parents didn't want family members to feel left out. So I put together an announcement letting them know we're getting married in October and are really excited to celebrate with the whole family in early 2012 (another thing on my list: planning this trip). Here they are:
I had the postcards printed by Vistaprint (for freeeeeee) and bought the petalfold & matting at Cards&Pockets (Sparkling Sapphire & Flame are the colors). I printed the monogram at home, cut with my paper cutter & attached the ribbon with a glue dot. Now that I look at it, I wish I had worked on the monogram a little more, but, too late now.

Our invitations have been printed and they look AMAZING... I plan to start assembling this month... verrryyyy slooowwwlllyyy :)
