Decisions decisions

I finally received the sample material from my wedding gowns and sample wedding invitations! woohoo! All thanks to my parents for being so efficient and the USPS of course. Two days was all it took. Can't imagine how long I'd have to wait if we had the vendors do it.

OK so to finalize the decision on the invites from American Wedding Treasures in Singapore(ironic eh?) please cast your votes :) Personally, I'd remove that cheesy line from the bottom of card 1 and use a different colored ribbon. I hate sheer organza type ribbons. I kinda like the gold one (card3) as well since it goes with the 'gold' theme of my gowns. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cards. The paper had a nice shimmery tone to it. Very pretty. Anyhow tough call ...

Let's Go Devils!

Duke vs Michigan State 7.10 PM EST

Confession. So I haven't actually watched college basketball since well college. Though I did catch it that last time Shane Battier brought Duke to NCAA victory in 2001. PS: my claim to fame ... I touched Battier's arm once my sophomore year. Eat that jealous fans. Anyway this is my tribute to March Madness and because I am SICK of writing my self review. (It is hard to mask your true feelings after 4 years.) Anyhow go Duke!

Ugly devils:

Martha Martha how does my basket look?

Basket on the left $54.95, basket on the right $3.97. My crafty talents ... *priceless* . After perusing countless issues of Martha Stewart weddings, I finally got inspired enough to embark on my first craft project since secondary school. What do you think of this Monique Lhuillier inspired flower girl basket. OK granted I stole the idea but still pretty impressive eh? What's next for me? Tending to my garden and whipping up artery clogging 4 course meals like Barefoot Contessa (she's annoying btw but that is for another post)?
