Wedding Countdown Surprises Part 2

I am very late posting about the adorable gifts that Kristin has sent me the last few months as a countdown to our wedding. I posted about it last here. She is so thoughtful and every little gift makes me smile for days.

The first picture is of an adorable engagement ornament that is all sparkly! It has the date we got engaged on the back. It is not a great picture because I was trying to take it inside but couldn't use the flash because it reflected the glitteriness too much! The second one is of a makeup bag that says "bride" and "Mr." and "Mrs." luggage tags! I can't believe we are going to be Mr. and Mrs. so soon!

This one is very thoughtful and special. It is a handkerchief that is supposed to be used on a baby's baptism and then kept for when they get married. But Kristin thought it could be used in reverse and use it on our wedding day and then on our first baby's baptism. What a sweet idea.

I am SO excited about the notecards on the left. I LOVE personalized....really anything. But they are cute notecards with our (soon to be) last name on them. She also got us a return address stamp with the first letter of our new last name and the address (well obviously it has the IS a return address stamp...duh Stephanie).

This month's surprise was a set of H bookmarks. This of course is my favorite one because it is black and white (it was being used in Julie and Julia but now it is in The Great Gatsby). They are really neat because they are magnets and just clip over the top of the page.

Thank you Kristin! It is such a fun surprise every month. Thank you for being so thoughtful.
(Note: I am missing a gift...but I seem to have misplaced the picture. So please don't count.)
