Woo hoo for stalking! I don't think we've planned out the exact dates of our trip yet but I'm hoping for a few days before and a few days after. I'm hoping to catch another wedding or two while we're down there.

It's been a while since I updated but there hasn't been much wedding news and Christmas with four kids, two exes, and two extended families can be a bit overwhelming!

The only real wedding news that I have is that Wayne's brother's wife's parents (did ya follow that one? yikes) have DVC and they've decided to book a grand villa for our wedding so that Wayne's parents, the brother and SIL and they (the SIL's parents), have their accommodations all reserved and stuff. This was a bit of an issue as my FFIL was concerned about it for some reason.

We will now be inviting FSIL's parents and brother to the wedding. Three more people. At least they're definite yesses.

I've been messing with Save the Dates. I want to send them out soon and I don't want to go all crazy making them myself (because I plan to do the invites). So here's a few I did on a few different sites. None of them are exactly what I wanted. I really wanted a more whimsical, light-hearted feel but, what do you guys think:

I like the top one too but I love that photo of you and Wayne infront of the castle. Btw when are you headed down to look at sights?

I love the one with the stuffed Mickey the best (it's cute, eye-catching, and totally fun Disney), but these are my two favorites!

I like all of them!!! Great job!!
If I had to pick a favorite, I'd probably pick the one at the top, but they all look great!!!!

Thanks guys!

@Laura- We're trying to get a trip together over spring break. We haven't taken Wayne's kids down yet and that would be a perfect opportunity. Like everything else, it comes down to money.

I think I'm going to poke around a little more and see if I can't combine some elements and come up with something I love.

Spring Break didn't work out but over the weekend we made a deposit to go to Disney from August 17 to the 23rd. Wooooo hoooo. It will be Wayne's kids' first trip to the world, and hence, very special, but we also have to squeeze in 2 hours with the folks at DFTW for our site visits, which probably also means finding a babysitter for a couple hours.

Hopefully, while we're there we can sign our LOA.

SQUUEEEE!

Now I just need someone to hire me.

Still job searching... it doesn't help that my computer died and was out of commission for a few days before my in-house technological smartypants revived it. It was like living without a limb for a few days! Ouch!

I haven't redone the STDs to incorporate what I like from all of my mock-ups to create one that we LOVE. Vistaprint is having a sale this weekend so I should get on that.

My not working yet is stressing the both of us out. We were counting on me having a job to pay for the wedding. The plan is basically to pay for day care and bank the rest. We're tightening our belts here but it's still not enough. So cross your fingers and say a prayer for me if you're the type who prays that I find work and soon.

Last week I was down in the basement cleaning our storage space because it was a disaster zone and I went through the box of stuff I saved from my first wedding and it gave me some much needed perspective. A lot of the stuff I saved is/was essentially junk. So while I am an extraordinarily sentimental type of gal, I realize that there are a few items upon which I don't need to spend a lot of money. Or any money. No flower girl and ring bearer so no pillow or basket. And the ones I saved are going on eBay. Toasting flutes? Nice but the ones I saved are going on eBay. I may downgrade the $250 ones I wanted for 2012 to red flutes I saw at Hobby Lobby. $10 and done. Guest book? I think I'd rather have photos.

I don't know if it's age that's causing all of this practicality but I kind of like it. We're stressed as it is about the budget and paying for the wedding. It feels good to be nonchalant about little details that seem to cause so much tension for other brides.

Can't wait for our August trip. We haven't told anyone except my sister because she's going at the same time.
