SPOTLIGHT ON: the MIL & the "Welcome to Maui" invites

I was waiting until I got the "Welcome to Maui" invitations were sent out to post this...

First of all I'd like to say ...

 It was my future MIL's birthday on August 18th. Fellow Leo and amazing woman, Stephanie (pictured on the left with her grandson, Ethan) has been playing a crucial role in all this wedding planning by being super understanding and supportive throughout the entire process, reminding me all the time to just relax and have a good time with it. She and Aaron's dad, Larry, are hosting the "Welcome to Maui" dinner that we're having instead of a rehearsal dinner and she's been doing an amazing job of it so far. I mean, check out these invitations that she designed...

Um, can you say- uh-may-zing???  Because I can.

I got my first glimpse of these yesterday when my little sister rushed up to me before I could even get to my apartment and said "Have you seen these yet!?" as she shoved the invite in my face. She pulled it out of the envelope and I gasped when I saw it. It was perfect. Even better than I could have designed, I think.

Of course these babies were made by the now newly married Karah at so they wouldn't be anything but awesome.

Anyway, I want to thank my wonderful future MIL for designing these invites, hosting the upcoming party, offering to help me with any and everything, and generally being one of the sweetest women in the entire world. But most importantly (to me) for having and raising Aaron to be a wonderful man and the most perfect husband that I could've imagined. You have done and continue to do an amazing job. 

I had one of my spies (aka- future SIL) dig up this photo to showcase the overwhelming cuteness of Stephanie and Aaron. And check out the date - I wasn't even born yet!

For her birthday Larry (her husband and my future FIL) got her a snorkel set! How awesome is that!? And I, for one, can't wait to see her use it in Maui. ;)

I agree - those invites are perfect, and we can't wait to meet the MIF & FIL in a week or two!!!
