Ahh, such a gorgeous home.  Perfect for an at home ceremony (or just to live in..)(image via sothebys real estate)

I love the handmade wooden signs leading you to the ceremony/reception. I commissioned my dad to make one for the drive way leading down to our ceremony.
Love love love the ribbons! I am doing this on my bridesmaid bouquets and my own bouquet only in navy and white grosgrain ribbon. (image via brooklyn bride)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! It was D & I's first one not spent with family so we ended up cooking our own meal! Thankfully my parents donated some money to the cause otherwise it definitely would have been mac n' cheese for us! We make a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, fruit custard salad, rolls, tollhouse pie, mmmm mmmm. We have been eating left overs all week and I love it!

In other news, the trip home went well. It was great to see family and get a few wedding related tasks crossed off the list! We decided on a florist and got everything finalized. I also got to go dress shopping and came out of it with two dresses I like. Now I just need to make a decision!

Before we left for home we were also able to pick up our save the dates! Today was spent gathering remaining addresses and fixing up our wedding website and tomorrow I get to spend all day addressing them! My goal is to have them ready to be dropped in the mail on Monday.

Tomorrow I also have to start working on my list of Christmas presents. Due to the lack of funds this year I plan on making almost all of my gifts. I will let you know how they turn out and post a few pictures after the Holidays!
