Maps Are Handy Things


. . . like when you need a superly awesome new way of wrapping wedding gifts.
I mean, hello.  Did you get a wedding gift wrapped in maps of the midwest?!  No. Neither did I.  Maybe that's my problem in life. . .

So people.  I now expect to see your sweet little bums dashing to the nearest thrift store and stocking up on this puppies.  Because once this hits Pinterest, prices will sky rocket and you will forever regret the day you turned down those $.10 finds.  I will now prepare to eat my humble pie for such dastardly prideful statements. *coouughh

In other random wedding news.
My sisters are gorgeous.  My mama looks too young to be one.  My belly craves more of that sexy cake. Annnd my boy is cute when he tries mastering the art of bubble blowing.











Happy Tuesday, gorgeous girls!

  10. Gosh that's the most beautiful present I have ever seen. If I would get something like that on my wedding I would honestly be afraid to open it! What a nice idea! This post really made me smile too. I really like your blog, count me in as a new follower! :D

  12. Lovely photos! And what I genius idea with the map. One of my life goals is to always be the person who gives those memorable, unique presents. My favorite wedding gift to give (though it takes time and planning) is 12 pre-planned date nights-one per month for the first year of marriage. You can buy things like movie gift cards, restaurant certificates, disposable cameras, etc and send the couple out for dinners or scavenger hunts or whatever you'd like! SO MUCH FUN to give.
    I'm going to have to try out the map wrapping paper sometime soon, too! :)
