some wedding plans… and a breakfast set-back

do you want to hear the success first? or the failure?

er… i’ll give you the failure first, just to get it out of the way.

So I hate our toaster.

We’ve got beef (what does that even mean?! I’m not sure I used that correctly)


Beef 1: the thing makes a ticking noise when it’s toasting… i guess so you don’t forget you are toasting something

HOWEVER, it ALSO makes that SAME ticking sound even when it isn’t plugged in… so you THINK your are gettin’ your toast on… in fact, your toast is still just bread because the toaster has been unplugged and isn’t getting hot… it’s just making the ticking sound.


but that’s not what happened this morning.

Beef 2: the toaster does not STOP toasting… ever.

once you turn it on, it’s the energizer bunny… going, and going, and going.


beef 2  is what occurred this morning… the thing just kept on toasting, and toasting, and toasting until my bread was a black brick of shame. (ooh, alliteration)

i remembered to plug the sucker in before turning it on… however, then I sat down on the couch, turned on my computer, and sat down to write an awesome blog about some wedding planning …

toaster of terror just kept at it, until flames were practically shooting out from it!

fortunately, one still-growing 19 year-old little brother/scavenger came to the rescue and gave the toast a proper burial…

in his belly.

I think I actually heard a “hm, not bad”

thanks baby bro!


Back to the original post!




the yard is coming along nicely for the wedding (thanks Mom and Daddy!)

Here is the image board I made in an attempt to wrangle all my ideas into some sort of organized thought


what do you think?

can you picture it?


here’s the program I used for the board


SO EASY! Give it a try!


  1. I think your inspirations are great! Very simple, elegant and warm. I also really dig your new blog design!

  2. Thanks girl! I won the new blog design from a giveaway... it was so difficult to edit it and get my own pictures in the header! haha, I still haven't even figured out how to use those links at the top!

  3. I think I know what kind of toaster to buy you for your new house ;] I think Kelly might have the one Harry had before they got married... I'm sure she would love to pass it down to you and Chris.
