Cake Toppers

So I've been looking for a topper for our wedding cake for awhile now. Every one I looked at either looked too cutesy or too boring or just weird. Any that I thought might be ok, Paul would just roll his eyes and shake his head no. Then last night I had a thought and did a quick internet search and found these guys. They are perfect for us! About 6 months into our relationship we went on a vacation to Tennesee. This trip was the defining time of our relationship, we knew were in love but that trip solidified it. It was an amazing time. It's a long story (see Nov. 2006 posts about the trip) but the majority of the trip revolved around black bears, so it seemed perfect to have them as our cake topper. They are so cute, I can't wait to get them.

My first Flat

It's hard to believe but after 14 years of driving I got my first flat tire today. I've had low tires, but a little air they always came back to life, not today. This baby was flat. I had to be rescued by my knight in shining armor :) Thank goodness for cell phones and men with strong muscles :)

It could have been worse, luckily someone caught my attention at a stoplight before I got on the interstate. I did find out that the so called emergency road side service I have with my car insurance is not emergency service, it's a reimbursement system for using road side service. I suggest if you have this on "service" on your policy, double check exactly what they do. Mine is going to be canceled tomorrow and we'll be purchasing good old trusty AAA. As much traveling as I do with work I need to have a back up system to my knight.

The most amusing part of the evening (besides the 20 degree temps and purchasing a new tire) was being hit up for money by a passerby while I was waiting for Paul. I said "ummm sorry I have no cash and I've kind of got my own problem right now to handle" Gotta love the nerve of people.

The favors!

Our invitations and favors came today. At first I wasn't sure I liked the favors, but after getting them put together they are so cute. BUT they are a huge pain in the butt to get tied, it definetly will not be a quick project. I'm still playing with the ribbon, I had planned on using the gold ribbon but now I'm thinking the blue ribbon looks better, but maybe a little thinner than the one I have on there. The gold one is too pale I think plus I can't really get it to make a nice bow.
