Bridesmaids packet printable & oversized confetti

Hello, hello! Happy Friday!
We are leaving tomorrow morning for a girls getaway weekend/bachelorette party :) If you haven't checked, the wedding is 15 days away!!! WHAT? We are so ready.
Also, we found out that some of our engagement pictures are going to be featured in the David Gardners Jewelers magazine!! We absolutely loved working with them and couldn't be happier with our rings :)


Anyway, I sent my bridesmaids a fun info packet a while back and just realized I never posted about them! These were so fun and easy to do.
The downloadable PDF is at the bottom. I left it mostly blank so you can fill in your own info, and I included a blank one at the end. The font I used is sunshine in my soul which you can download from dafont! 
I'd been in contact with my girls, but it's always nice to have a paper copy to refer back. I made the template in powerpoint and printed it on heavy cardstock. I also made the oversized confetti using tissue paper and a shape puncher from Hobby Lobby. This is so easy and cheap! A great way to spice up a party, package, etc.
The envelopes are 5X5 velum and I love how you can see the confetti through it! I cut the cardstock to fit once they were printed, and voila! Cute bridesmaids packets that you can send through regular mail!

I may or may not be obsessed with confetti right now.
How stinkin' cute is this?!?

scarf swap!

Seriously, how fun is a blogger scarf swap?! Meredith is so awesome for hosting, and my partner, Miss Jama Lee, is the best. She sent me this gorgeous scarf from Loft, which happens to be the same one Meredith got! 
It's still pretty stifling here--maybe if I wear it, Texas will take a hint??

Thanks, Jama and Meredith!

favorite things: office attire

I'm not a morning person. My body is slowly adjusting, but there's just something about waking up when it's still dark outside that really rubs me the wrong way.
But take heart, a cute outfit and a cup of coffee are just the right combo to chase my morning blues away. :) 
I'm going to do a series of "favorite things" posts about my current business casual loves. I'll try my best to post about items I actually own, but since I'm a bargain shopper, that's not always possible--it'll be a mix.

1. Color blocked pencil skirts. I love skirts from The Limited because many of them are made from the yoga pants material, so they're cute and comfortable.
I have this one.
And I have one similar to this, but the stripes are navy and hot pink. Love!
2. These shoes required absolutely NO break-in time, and they go with nearly everything (and they're on sale!!).
3. Navy and orange is one of my favorite color combos for the office. Bright but not overwhelming. (this is not me)

Happy weekend! Today's my 9/80, so we went to the courthouse and got our marriage license this morning! T-22 days until the wedding!!
