He gets a port installed today to start chemo. They found more cancer on one of his lymph nodes. I was very unhappy about that, and as a result, totally went off my diet so I could have a really large glass of vodka followed by a pepperoni and mushroom pizza after I found out on Thursday. Hopefully the chemo, followed by radiation, kills it all!I haven't yet asked him to walk me down the aisle. He's been very busy planning his attack on the cancer and I wanted to wait until he gets his schedule down-pat. One less curve ball to throw in the mix, but I am going to ask him soon. It just seems like such an unimportant detail in the grand scheme of things right now.

Which is totally fine, if that's the feel you're going for, but since you're still in the design phase I wanted to throw in my $.02. I'm trying to figure out exactly what it is so I can articulate it better to be more helpful, but I'm having a hard time putting my finger on it. I guess maybe my use of the word "cute" is the problem?
Written by 4ever » March 25th, 2011, 12:11 am:I think it's the top bit that makes it more casual, the date and hearts and dots. I think it will look a little more formal when printed but I'm not really sure how to make it a little less casual with the type and lay out, fancier type didn't look quite right, I thought it would look odd once I add the twine and brown paper if the type was really formal. Donno, might have to go to plan two and have friend of mine look at it for me, she is much MUCH better at this stuff than me.

Written by 4ever » March 31st, 2011, 1:38 pm:I've booked our cake! Yay! And our cake-maker is going out of her way to alter her recipes to be vegan so my sister and my good friends boyfriend (vegans) and FI (who is lactose intolerant not vegan) can eat the cake too! And it's very reasonably priced! The plan is one chocolate layer and one carrot if they both turn out well in her trials. So now we have a ceremony space/reception venue/all the food etc sorted, cake, celebrant, DJ (as DJ friend of FI will do it for freeeeee for our wedding prezzy, yay!) and some quotes and options for transport and flowers to choose from, about 75% of the centerpieces/decorations for the reception collected and MAYBE a well priced photographer if my friends sister says yes. AND there is 1 year and 4 days till our wedding. I am a wedding planning ninja!

Written by sillyberry » April 1st, 2011, 10:16 am:vc, I am SO SO happy you ended up doing a Cherry Blossom Festival shoot, because these are just awesome. You didn't get your spring dress, but your other e-photos were totally summery, so this is a nice change of pace. No wonder you can't stop staring at them!!!AFM...this week has been a beating (travel woes, home buying stress, dress doesn't fit, one missing cat - she's been found!, one cat had surgery and we're waiting on the biopsy results, missed my FI's 30th birthday), but I have a few stupid things to share!Our stamps (both postage and rubber) have been ordered! Our invitations are covered in blooms, so we created a complimentary image that will be on the postage, then will be followed through as a rubber stamp on our welcome bags and favors (and anywhere else we need to stamp something!). My mom thinks they look like a cabbage, but I like them. Plus the invitations have been printed, the calligraphed envelopes delivered, and we're just waiting on the envelope liners so we can put them all together!CW Zazzle Stamp Small.jpgCW B&W Stamp Small.jpgThen the floral show-and-tell on Monday, followed by the timeline meeting with the wedding planner where this (hopefully) all starts to come together! I did just learn that the song that we're considering using for our first dance was used by my MOH at her wedding...to her ex-husband on Memorial Day Weekend five years prior. I totally didn't remember this (maybe I was already drunk by the first dance?). But I'm hoping it's not a bad omen!And, this final thing may be really creepy and morbid, but...my father is deceased and my mom and I have been trying to figure out how to have him at the ceremony. The more pronounced stuff (rose on an empty seat, moment of silence) just aren't me. I think we're going to do a cremation pendant and sew it onto my dress.
