Project 366: Day 60, 02-29 Leap Day

Would have been nice to get a pic of the paper with today’s date, but Google homepage is good enough…

Any ladies propose today?

Project 366: Day 58, 02-27 Banh Cuon

Thanks to our favorite restaurant owner, “Uncle (Cau)” of Simply It, for giving us some of his mom’s homemade banh cuon. I don’t even know where to even begin in order to make these, but I am good with eating them!

As a side note, Cory ate his with chopsticks and I enjoyed mine with a large serving fork. Ha.

Project 366: Day 57, 02-26 Wedding Album

So, I spent some quality time working on our wedding album on Blurb. We flipped through it on our 1 year anniversary and couldn’t get past the first page without tears…not because we were feeling nostalgic, but because the perfectionist in me couldn’t fathom the fact that I forgot a title page in the book!

Cory didn’t even notice, but since I made this album in the same style as our engagement and Vietnamese ceremony albums, I wanted them to be all consistent…and both of those had title pages with the date, location, etc. The wedding album had nothing…not even a date to remind Cory each year.

I was so upset about my mistake, it was still in the box until this morning (4 months). This morning, I got over it (until I can afford to redo it and reorder, anyway). So, now, instead of sitting in a box, it’s sitting proudly on our mantle with the others.

Project 366: Day 56, 02-25 The Good Guys Won

Kansas v. Mizzou. The Border War. Last game of a 100+ year rivalry.

Wow. Today’s game was so intense, I could barely watch (but I did…eyes partially covered). Of course, the good guys won. Muck Fizzou!

The Crossing was nuts after the win…

Project 366: Day 53, 02-22 Table Fifty-Two DAP

Tonight, I took advantage of Restaurant Week at Table Fifty-Two with my former Pod People colleagues. We try to DAP as much as schedules allow, but it seems like we only get together once a quarter (sadly).

Thanks to Wendizzle and J-Biz for such a fun evening and to our new friend from Table Fifty-Two. Such terrific food, incredible staff and unbeatable company.

Project 366: Day 52, 02-21 Kelsey’s BM Gift

I opened up the cutest gift today from Kelsey. Pix below, but such a cute way to kick things off with her bridal party! She has always been so creative, so not surprised at all to see all the cute touches.

Adorable rustic chic jewelry box wrapped in a mesh leopard bow and a kraft card attached:

Personalized inside with photo of the two of us from my bachelorette party, info cards and a Ring Pop!

Close-up of the info cards that shared wedding details, wedding party intros, attire, wedding inspiration board and contact info:

Kelsey just sent me this pic. Apparently booze wasn’t allowed in the shipment, but she was going to include some prohibited Pama and recipe for a Pama champagne toast! Love.

Isn’t this such a cute idea for bridesmaids? It reminds me of the cards I sent my lovely ladies (inspired by this post by Elise of enJOY it on Elizabeth Anne Designs), but WAY cuter!

Did you do anything special to ask your friends to be in your bridal party or have you received anything unique yourself? Leave a comment to share!

Project 366: Day 51, 02-20 Missed This Face

Reina and Lovie kept the house in order and greeted us with wagging tails and too many kisses today. Missed those vicious pit bulls!
