I got some of our wedding photos back today! Jon's sister, Sarah, took these photos. Seth has the rest.

DIY Recycled, Screenprinted, Luggage tag wedding announcements

So, the wedding has come and gone, and it was beautiful, but I didn't want to let these go undocumented.  Our wedding announcements were a DIY project.  I must've come up with seven or eight different designs before I had my Eureka! moment.  This was one of the best projects I've ever done.  I designed the announcements and luggage tags on AI, formatted them to fit on an 11x17 piece of cardstock (so I could get more bang for my buck at the screenprinters - they charge per page, no matter what size), and helped actually screen them.  All in all, each announcement ended up being about .50 plus postage.  I loved these little announcements.

Late post -- The FOURTH of July.

Don't ask me why I forgot that it was the 4th of July this weekend.  Whoops.  Nbd.  Regardless, the husb and I had a weekend filled with all manner of awesomeness.  Starting with this:

Now accepting suggestions for names.  
This little beaut is mine.  And Jon's, of course.  Of COURSE it's his, too.  I just REALLY like it!  Anyway, yesterday morning we rode our bikes to the grocery store and picked up some things to make what I will now call Humma-moley, since the alternative name (Guaca-muss) sounded too much like a fungal disease.  The Hummamoley (and yes, I know that Guacamole does not have a 'Y' on the end, it's purely for pronunciation purposes in our case) turned out fabulous.  It's a little, green Hummus with an emphasis on avocado, cucumber, cilantro, spinach, and lime juice.  Bingalls would love it, I suspect.  

We made homemade half-wheat pita bread to go with it.  Um, if you haven't made homemade pita then you have been robbed of what REAL pita tastes like.  You might like it.  At least, there's a pretty good chance.
