Wedding Round Up

It was a beautiful day in Washington, DC today. It was such a shame I was stuck at my desk :( 9 to 5. After work I had a headache so I quickly whipped up Anne’s Cheesy Coconut Sautéed Chickpeas and Kale over whole wheat couscous.


I didn’t have Coconut Oil so I used Olive Oil and added Shredded Coconut. It was delicious and hit the spot! With a full tummy, I headed outside to enjoy the warm 80 degrees temperatures.


I strolled down to the newish park in Arlington. What a great view!!

This weather is starting to feel like summer, which means we are even closer to the BIG day. With 95 days to go, I thought I would catch y’all up on a few recent decisions.



Jay has recently become even more obsessed with bowties. As a result, he decided he wanted his guys in bowties for the BIG day. Jay is wearing the “Light Powder Blue” bowtie and his groomsmen are wearing the “Dark Blue” bowties.

Since we are asking the men in our families to wear khaki pants and navy blazers, we decided to buy them ties as well. The Dads are wearing the “Lime Green and Lavender” ties and our brothers (and in-laws) are wearing the “Key-Lime Green” ties.

Kids Books


We aren’t having a lot of children at our wedding, but we are inviting a few. Above is a cute book I saw online that is super simple to print. Easy = something I am willing to do for the wedding.



When Charlotte was in town a few weeks ago, we went to Michaels to pick up supplies to make wedding signs. I feel like my list of potential signs just keeps growing, but at least I have the makings of what I need. Now just to pick up the rest of the supplies and start working!!

Favors/Escort Cards


Jenna and Bill had a greatest escort cards at their wedding back in September. They simply put labels (printed with the guests name and table number) on bags of red jelly beans. I knew this was the way to go since I don’t want to have to deal with writing out all the names and I am too cheap to pay a calligrapher ;)

Instead I decided to take their idea and make it ours. So instead of jelly beans, Jay and I are going to use Benne Wafers as our favor/escort card.

The only downside, for them to be fresh, I can’t order them until a month out. Good thing I am just printing labels ;)
