We're Moving! Again!

Well...we tried. And tried. And tried.

But our new Seattle home just was not working out.  We came to a mutual agreement with our landlady about a month ago that we would amend our lease to a month-to-month version and start to look for a new place to live.

Lucky for us we found a place pretty fast!  We signed our lease last week and we're moving in next Friday!

It's a two bedroom, 1 bath house with a garage, doors, closets, a dishwasher, washer and dryer, custom painted rooms (the living room is an awesome maroon color), hardwood floors, and a covered patio in the back yard!  The house also has been certified (except for the maroon wall) by a Feng Shui expert! It's also only only a move across town in Ballard, we're going from 22nd to 9th, which is farther East.

So anyway, here's to our a better start to our new life in Seattle!

Visit To The Museam of Flight

My dad came up to Seattle to visit us this last weekend and we all went down to the Museam of Flight on Saturday.

Super neat place and a very well done museam. I would love to go back actually and look closer at everything I breezed by!
We were also surprised with an impromptu air show of a bunch of helicopters that were visiting for the day!

Invitations Are Ready To Go!

Well our invitations are all done and sealed in their envelopes! This is a task that feels good to have completed!  Especially since this was a true DIY project, which we'll have to post more about later.

One of the best parts about our invitations was the help we had from our family.  Our parents acted as great consultants, had some key ideas (thank's mom for suggesting Pages software!) and my dad even helped make them!  And Zeke's (and my soon to be officially) wonderful sister-in-law created the perfect artwork for them. We can't even begin to express our gratitude for all of their help!

On a separate note...bummer on the stamp availability at our local post office.  Not very exciting or creative, but they'll get the invitations out just fine!

Let Sleeping ... Lie

Yup, that's a raccoon on our neighbor's front porch taking a snooze...oh Ballard...

Making Invitations

So we looked at our options and decided to take the leap to making our own invitations at home!

We knew it would be quite an endeavor but it's actually really rewarding feeling! It's special that we're making all of the pieces of the invitation suite that we will be sending out to all our friends and family. And we're saving A TON of money!

Our invitations are costing us basically ink, paper, and adhesive.

It's also been fun to make them!  We'll post more details and pictures later after they've been send out!

Our Save The Dates

We made them on and wow it was easy!

We asked one of my wonderful bridesmaids, Jenny (the one who took our awesome engagement photos last year) to put our date on the top of one of our sunset photos which were taken in the same gazebo where we got engaged. 

It came out perfect and all we had to do was upload the photo to Cardstore and then write the text on the back of the blank photo post card.
