Okay, so with this pregnancy, I have not wanted to get online, let alone really get too near a computer, so I am behind in emails, blogging, pretty much anything that involves a computer. Also, the sum of my days involve laying in bed and well… laying in bed, not too exciting to share around these parts. I am sure you don’t want daily pictures of me and the girls chillin’ in my messy room. Therefore, I have dubbed Wednesdays… Wedding Wednesdays. At least for now, and my life and body returns back to being somewhat human. Plus, our anniversary is in a little over a month so I thought this would be a nice way to reminisce.

I have mentioned before that “chicken and lamb” was a little theme that ran throughout our whole courtship and even wedding thanks to Dave Matthews, so we did a little play on that for our guestbook. I got this unusually long book at Anthropologie, which I just had to snatch up, despite the fact the colors didn’t match the wedding, but the size was perfect for what we wanted to do.
We had our very talented friend, Jose, create a carnival cut-out of sort for guests to take pictures in. It was pretty big and sturdy as it was made of wood, I think it was about 4’x6′. It was a very nice size. Actually, it is still sitting in my parents’ garage. The piece was based on a “chicken and lamb” painting Ben had given me when we were dating. Guests got behind it, someone took a polaroid of them, then they stuck it to the book and signed it. Now looky here, there we are almost 4 years ago…
I think it was a lot of fun and it is so special going back to see everyone who was there and to read what they wrote. I still remember the feelings of that day so vividly. So surreal. So in love. So just absolutely dreamy.
I think by the time I am done with my wedding sharing you are going to be so sick of “chicken and lamb” things, cause trust me… it was everywhere (at least in small details). Maybe I should just call it “chicken and lamb” wednesdays.
Don’t forget the giveaway!
