When a lot becomes a little…

 

We FINALLY mailed our Save the Dates!

Did you miss the Save The Date sneak peek? Recap HERE!

Getting all the addresses honestly didn’t take that much time, it was really just finding the time to do it! And then I wanted to stamp the blank side of the postcard with a sunflower and border stamp, which no one will probably notice or care about…but it didn’t take long either. Besides, we mailed them. That’s the important little step! Actually putting them in the mail. The Save the Dates have been mailed…it’s looking like I’m actually going to get married this year! :)

On a side note, have you noticed that in the “wedding world” Save the Dates are referred to as STD’s? Yeah…I just can’t do that. I can’t even read it without giggling. Then I think to myself “Why are you giggling? STD’s are no laughing matter!” And then I giggle again because I just said STD’s. Eesh. Am I even old enough to get married? ;)

While addressing 80 or so postcards doesn’t seem like a huge deal in the grand scheme of wedding planning, it took a lot of little steps to pull it together. I’m beginning to see where hiring a wedding planner can have it’s advantages. But at the same time, I sort of love to have control over all those little details. And with Parrish’s help, a lot becomes a little! Much like tonight’s dinner:

Balsamic Glazed Chicken topped with Roasted Grape Tomatoes

On Monday, I found this recipe from Cooking Light. I planned it for Friday, knowing that I would be worn out from work and the directions didn’t seem to be too complicated.

With Parrish on risotto, we quickly whipped this dish up. Teamwork! :) And the results were super tasty!

I couldn’t believe these tomatoes! So juicy and red! I’ve roasted tomatoes before, but I usually coat them in olive oil. I liked this recipe much better! Light oil and light honey combine to make a sticky sauce that lets the tomatoes burst but not goop.

Lycopene at it’s liveliest!
