So, is everyone getting tired of my wedding posts and gushing about the big day? For those that are married, I'm sure you can relate to the excitement one bride gets the days leading up to her wedding. For those that are not yet married, I'm sorry if this is way too much wedding talk. Feel free to scroll right past to my OOTD! Haha...and I promise to be back tomorrow with my usual Preview Friday feature.
When we thought about table numbers, we really didn't want to go with just plain numbers. In our typical Cindi and Chris fashion, we wanted to personalize it. So, Chris and I decided to name each table a city we've traveled to. Not only that, each city would be a post card, with messages to our guests on the back. The message contained what we did during that trip as if we were really sending them.
We tried to make our messages fun and witty...and Chris is a such a better writer than I am so let me give you an example of one of his post cards:
Shenyang (this is the city...the city where I'm from)
"We haven't seen a tree, grass, or blue skies in weeks, but on the ground...oh...so many interesting sights and smells! The people seem friendly enough, once you get past the seemingly enraged yelling tone normal conversation is held in and the elbows that fly at your face and ribs as you move with the masses through unstoppable traffic. A lady on the bus today called me "comrade". That was delightful. We were on our way to a swap meet of sorts where the awesomeness of your deal is directly related to how rigorous of an argument (negotiation) you are willing to engage in. Wish you were here...we could go for some noodle soup. A bowl of soup here seems to be the equivalent of a quick lunch sandwich in the US, and once you have handmade noodles you never go back! Meet you next to the giant Mao monument? Love, Cindi and Chris."
Now, onto my OOTD from yesterday. Most of you know I love my Field Game cardi and just can't get enough of it. Seattle's summers are fairly mild so we can get away with wearing cardis like this. Love it!
