Doing our invitations this month was a DIY project that took hours upon hours. I think we totally underestimated how much work is involved, but you know what they say: All's well that ends well! We've gotten a ton of compliments on them, making all the work well worth it. We got one RSVP card back so far (before leaving town), and I know I'm going to be looking forward to checking the mail for the next month. The wedding definitely feels like a reality now that I'm tracking RSVPs; knowing who will be there is so exciting. Last I heard, 109 nights were booked at our blocked hotel: whoa! I'm torn between wanting to speed time up and slow it down to just enjoy it and take everything in. I'll try for the later, as I think it's best to live in the present. My bridal shower is on Saturday, and I picked out some awesome hostess gifts while in Vegas. 

That's all the news we have for now! I anticipate no updates in the coming week, as we are going to be in full fledged survival mode until grades are due on Friday. We will surface from under piles of essays only to eat, sleep, and give and grade finals, but we wish everyone a productive and happy week!
