Connecticut and NYC

Last weekend, Jim and I, along with a bunch of family members went to Connecticut to celebrate my Great Uncle Jerry's 90th birthday. We flew into LaGuardia Saturday morning and drove to Southbury for the dinner Saturday evening. All together, there were 24 of us that were there to celebrate. :) It was great seeing everyone, especially Uncle Jerry, and we had a really good time. Then, on Sunday, we drove back to New York City to go sightseeing. Neither Jim or I had been to NYC, so after checking into our hotel, we went and saw a few sights - Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, World Trade Center site, and the Hudson River. Sunday night, we found a nice restaurant (with really good pasta!) and then went to a few bars. We did a little bit of sightseeing Monday, but had to head to the airport for our flight home. Overall, we had a fantastic weekend and would like to go back.

Save the Dates Are In The Mail!

Well, I finally (note the finally!) got the save the dates for the wedding in the mail and am so glad to have this completed. I decided to go with the boarding pass save the dates quite some time ago and have had them designed for a while as well. But some details had to be finalized, such as reserving the resort for our wedding date. :) Once this was done and I finished the design, I had them printed and began the cutting and assembly process. It was a little more time-consuming than I had planned, but I am very pleased with how they turned out. Because of all of the info needed for booking the trip, we also included a magnet and brochure.
