I have been researching/thinking about a new computer since March. When Mac announced the new imac, I huffed and hawed but decided I would get it when leopard came out. So I have been going to the Mac store every week for a month waiting and talking to the employees about my new computer. So I wait in line on Friday….so excited! I get in and ask for my new computer and then almost explode when the guy tells me that the stores can’t sell computers with upgraded hardrives. I have been waiting sooooooooooooooooo long and avoided pre ordering online because I like the guys at my mac store and wanted to get it in person. So let’s just say I walked out pissed as shit and went home and ordered one online.

I can’t wait to get my new computer…so I’m busying myself with transferring data. I’ll be back as soon as my Mac makes it here :)

Thanks so Kim, I wandered over to Black Forest Decor and couldn’t stop laughing/oggling at all the great stuff for a farm wedding/rustic feel.

A fake antler chandelier for a whopping $294. A birch canoe set. A pair of coasters. And cool rustic birch candles.

Honestly, I like the idea of registries (i.e. getting gifts that are actually useful instead of 56 bottles of shower gel), but people register for stuff that collects dust. How many times are you going to use that monogrammed wine chiller? Do you really need every gizmo williams and sonoma offer? So I was very excited when I stumbled upon Alternative Gift Registry. It emphasizes decommercializing registries.  I would love to have some people buy us art rather than forks, but I can’t go into Macy’s and do that. So I could list favorite paintings/art work on my registry! Or asking for someone in the family to pull together family records and have a family tree. Or I would love to have people have old photos scanned and give me a cd so I can pass on images to my children of their great grandma.

Yes, you can register for your special wine glasses- but add a few things you would love to have, but feel like its too much to ask of someone in particular. Ask for cooking classes and someone you invite may take you up on it!

From the site:  With an estimated 2.5 million weddings in the United States each year and an average of 175 guests invited to each celebration, the stuff associated with weddings quickly adds up

  • According to The Knot, one of the largest wedding planning resources in the world, $19 billion is spent buying gifts from wedding registries each year.
  • Many traditional gifts that were once meant to help a couple set up a home no longer apply, with so many couples getting married or remarried later in life.

Holy hell. If your looking for ideas for your hair, run, do not walk, over to this (polish?) site. It has hundreds of photos, so click and then go make dinner.

I tend to favor the loose, flowing locks look. I like it curly and tumbling down the neck and back. It’s romantic and not too stiff.

I also love the company Pearl and Marmalade- remember the Martha Stewart Summer Wedding magazine? Yes? Remember the bee invitations- that was them. They do have a great assortment of designs but I’m in love with one. I already showed it around to Nat and Kate and they love it.

Is this the one? *Gulp* Damn is it hard making choices!

I will admit that I have probably spent more than 8 hours surfing the internet in the last couple weeks JUST looking for the perfect invitations. For me, the invitations are sooo important. They are the first thing people see in regards to your wedding. And I want letterpress(I had a fling with gocco for awhile, but settled on letterpress).

Greenwich Letterpress has the most amazing stuff. I’m getting married at the Audubon Society, so an enchanted forest/midfalls night dream is what I’m going for. Greenwich has owls, horses, squirrels, and all designed so well my mouth was watering. They are in my top 2. The other choice I’ll reveal tomorrow.

I love berries in fall weddings, it gives a dash of red but is also pretty and subtle if done right.

I should have looked on Bond’s website where I could actually buy the magazine because I ended up going to 2 bookstores and going home empty handed. Oh, except for the new Colbert book….I couldn’t help it! Tommorw I WILL get my hands on this thing.

Excuse me, how did I miss this?? Bond is a new magazine that promotes itself as ‘alternative’. The front cover does feature a lesbian couple, a gay couple and a straight couple. Ok, you got my attention. And in their couples section on their website they have the cutest lesbian couple that met through planetout.com!! Like Nat and I!!

I must have this magazine- damn having class all day. I just want to plop into a chair at Politics and Pros and read this thing.

Fall decor

This is the time that all the fall brides – moi included- are beginning to plan the big day. Decoration that is fall themed but not cheesy is hard to find really. I found a LOT of fake pumpkins. And scary/stupid looking scarecrows.

But these little squirrels I heart!

wagon.jpgAnd they even have a big wagon for $30. Just do NOT click on the scarecrow links they have on their site. Trust me.

leaves.jpg And BayBerry Cove has Wendy Allison glitter leaves. How pretty would these be hanging over the tent entrance?

sq.jpgPlacecard holders!! Ekk! The cuteness.
