brown paper packages tied up with string . . .

. . . these are a few of my favorite things!  

I think I could get quite used to getting multiple packages a day!  Of course this doesn't happen everyday but I'll bet this is the most concentrated time I'll ever have of getting fun packages in the mail.  (My mom did do really well sending care packages when I was in college, but not multiple ones in a week!  :)


The other day I had two boxes!  Our nice head of maintanence helped me carry them out to my car.  

I could tell the first one was . . . 









our invitations!!!!!  

I don't want to give anything away but I'll give you the tiniest little peak at a part of the thank you cards!  I am soooo excited about these!  My cousin Jonathan designed the thank you notes and reply cards and he and my friend Meredith both did parts of the invitation!  I am soo excited about them!  

I wasn't really sure what was in the other box.  It seemed awfully big.  












Napkins!   
I had ordered four colors hoping that at least one of the colors would work.  They were sold in packs of 300-500 for only $12 something each!  I must remember that God really does care for the small details of my life.  Look at these napkins with our tablecloth swatches!

Excited about the invitations? I bet they turned out to be beautiful and unique! Want to hear something funny? Your little monkey of a nephew crawled up on the chair in front of the computer while I was just in the restroom and he messed up the computer so that every thing that I type some voice says out loud. I can't turn his voice off! Every letter and space that I am typing right now he is saying out loud in his computer voice. Yikes! KIDS! :)

I would skip the napkin printing, although the examples were cute! I love all of your details!
