Being engaged is such an exciting time in your life. There is a lot that goes into planning a wedding. Sites like Basic Invite have made the search for wedding stationery x10 easier as well as having just about everything you could possibly need all in one place! With over 200 wedding invitations, you can find everything from the save the dates to your wedding invitations and enclosure cards, wedding menus, wedding programs for the wedding and then matching thank you cards for after. Basic Invite has just about everything you need, and the best part of all? Everything is 100% customizable!


Finding a card that perfectly represents you as a couple can be a bit difficult, there are so many options, and sometimes all of the designs start to look the same. Basic Invite gets that, and that’s why everything on Basic Invite’s site is 100% YOURS to customize! Love a design but not the colors? Search through the almost unlimited color options to create a scheme that is right for your wedding! With 160 different color and font options, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the complete control to customize their cards down to the tiniest detail, and to ensure you’ll love what you create, you get an instant preview online!


Everyone knows that ordering something online is a risk, and that is why Basic Invite is one of the few sites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality! This will save you the second guessing and indecisive thoughts you may have after ordering your invites. You can see how it will look exactly in hand, and if you aren’t 100% satisfied, you can get back on the site to make any last minute changes before ever having to order in bulk!

The color options do not end with the invitations – Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes! Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out before guests even open it! All envelopes are also peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without having to lick each one!

Finding your wedding stationery has never been this simple, head over to Basic Invite now to check out the variety of trendy and stylish cards, and get started on customizing them to be absolutely perfect for your big day!

Playing ketchup. Somehow my last post with some of these photos was deleted so I’m reposting.

I’ll kick it off with the best news of all. I’m going to be an aunt again. My SIL and BIL are having a baby. I snapped these two shots for their announcement picture while we were in Colorado. Can’t decided which I like better. They are similar but I love the sun flare in the bottom one. Baby is due in October. Just in time bc Hunt is no longer a baby and I need my fix!!!!! 🙂

In Feb. we went to Crested Butte. It was the girls’ first time to ski. Mia was a pro and of course Ausha could have cared less. She just wanted to color. FEB1643 FEB1615 FEB164

Me and my green thumb. 😉


Hunt and his boy stuff.


Lately the kids have been excellent t.v. watchers while I cook dinner. Even H will sit with the girls. IT.IS.THE.BEST.



The girls started dance and I pulled them quickly. They hated it. We all hated it. Plus their teacher was mean. Back to soccer we went. We are all much happier now.

We rip out a lot of the stone flower bed liners and added a concrete wall. The backyard is a mess so we are all stuck inside until the grass grows back.
