Invitations are almost done! I'm so excited to get these out of the house--I will finish the remaining 10 or so this weekend and they will all be sent out early next week. :) Be watching for an amber colored square envelope to be coming to your house soon!
I can't wait to start working on something else...

This weekend John and I biked to Seattle Pie Company and tried their cherry and strawberry rhubarb pies. YUM! We've decided we will be serving some pies from them and cakes or cupcakes. I went searching for some cake stands today and found one that is 3-tiered at Ross and 1 large cake stand from Goodwill. If anyone has a cake stand or two or three they'd like to donate to me let me know!

I still love the idea of having many cakes and pies for the reception. I think this is a great way to go to keep the cost down on something too and it gives a nice variety of things so everyone is hopefully happy with the dessert...just not sure where I'm going to get all of the cake stands but I guess I can always make my own (if time allows).

Tulalip Casino and Resort

We are going to stay at Tulalip Resort and Casino the night of the wedding! Above is a picture of one of their king-size rooms. We are hoping to keep the party going after the reception and hope that others will be able to stay there as well.

If you would like to book a room call 866-716-7162. There have been some rooms blocked out for a cheaper rate. King-sized rooms will run $149 and Queen-sized (2 double beds) will run $169. When you book tell them you are calling for the Kuver-Thimsen Wedding Room Block. Reserve by 4/22/2010 for these prices.

We haven't figured out if we will have shuttle from the hotel to wedding and back to the hotel or not yet. If that is a concern please let us know...that may sway us one way or the other. The drive to the hotel is about 20 minutes from Snohomish.

Starting up again...

Wedding planning is gearing up again. I have not done much over the past couple of weeks. We went to Cabo, which was beautiful and relaxing. Now it's the new year and 4 months and 19 days to go til the wedding! So much to do and I'm sure it will go so fast. This week I hope to get most of the RSVPs printed and start gluing the invite part. Next week we might be able to start addressing everything.

Other things we need to do:
Set up RSVP on Web site
Register at Macy's
Call Tulalip Casino to block rooms (I already did this once but no one called back)
Start coming up with a list of music to play at wedding and reception
Decide on men's clothing
Buy an address stamp

And the list goes on...

I've worked out the past 3 days too. I drank way too many cervesas last week. Only a month til I need to call to start getting fitted for the dress so working out is a priority right now.

I'm also a little worried about my bridesmaid gifts... I have them ordered and only 2 have come. I'm not sure what happened to the 3rd one. Hopefully it's in the mail.
