…with the Dagger


Tomorrow is the big event! We are so excited and super ready for the first event to be hosted in our new place. And even though not everyone we invited could make it, we are having a reasonable turn out of 20 guests. I’m very pleased with how all our plans are coming together.

I know that it may seem silly to some people to put so much planning into it all, but I think it’s all those small details that really make a party memorable.

Yesterday was our one week mark until the party. Today, we’ll be shopping for the remainder of our party details that isn’t food that might spoil by the weekend.

Countdown to Halloween : …with the Wrench.


Our party is so close! Well, ok, we still have a few weekends to go, but it feels rather close. Perhaps I’m just excited. We’re both feeling it.

Since we’ve asked our guests to help with the appetizers, we have been planning some great drinks to line up for the evening. One of my favorite finds for the party thus far is a sangria recipe we found. It will certainly be something different for our guests from the usual Martinelli’s cider, but still enjoyable and a refreshing flavor. I’m pretty stoked about it and eager to hear what our guests think of it. It’s going to be for the non-drinkers of the party, but should still be a fun drink.

Countdown to Halloween : …with the Lead Pipe.


This was supposed to post on Saturday, but I didn’t get to finish writing it and the day didn’t got exactly as planned. So I’m making it up now. I’ll be posting Friday’s missed post today as well.

By this time, all of our guests should have received their invitations in the mail. Which means I get to share the product of my fun labor!

These were just as fun to make as our wedding invitations only a lot less labor-intensive. They were REALLY easy to make. And required little to no material outside of the paper and envelopes. I got to use stuff laying around the apartment. I don’t think I have ever had a project where I didn’t have to go out and buy 2/3 of what I wanted to make.

Countdown to Halloween : …with the Rope.


Yet another “clue” for our Clue Carousal. ;D We’ve officially dropped invitations in the mail last night. I hope people get as much of a kick out of the invites as I did making them. I don’t think I could ever do away with traditional paper invites. There’s just so much you can do with them. Besides, who doesn’t love receiving things in the mail?

Countdown to Halloween : CHOC Charity Walk


As some of you have witnessed on my facebook page, my hubby and I took steps towards dedicating some time and fundraising towards what I feel like is a really amazing and wonderful cause.

I was feeling motivated to join this walk when I received information about an Annual Passholder’s team. Then talk of it sprouted within a FB group of fellow Disneyland Brides. When talks of forming a team got serious, I was 100% behind it and my darling-dearest encouraged me to go for it and participate.
