So… I made a promise to myself back in January.  I promised I would NOT blog until we got our wedding Thank You cards out.  

I was under the impression that we had one year to get our wedding Thank You’s out the door and into the hands of our friends and family.  Of course, I thought I’d send them the moment I returned from the blissful honeymoon.   Well, I didn’t.  So then, I thought I’d get them out before Thanksgiving.  (As a reminder… our wedding day was Sept. 19, 2009.)  When I missed the Thanksgiving deadline I gave myself until Jan. 1, to get those bad boys off my plate.  Did I, you ask?  NO.  I didn’t.

According to Emily Posts Wedding Etiquette, I’m a BAD, BAD, post bride.  She says I only had three months to get them out.  Here’s an exerpt from her etiquette book:

Contrary to popular myth, the happy couple does not have a year’s grace period. All thank you notes should be written within three months of the receipt of the gift. Ideally, a response should be written on the day you receive a wedding gift. If that’s not possible, set a daily goal. It’s a lot easier to write three or four notes a day than to have to write a hundred notes in a month after the wedding 

So, it’s March 30, and my lovely Thank You cards are still sitting on my dining room table waiting to be completed.  Technically, we’re 3 1/2 months late.  (In all honestly, I’m standing my ground and waiting for my husband to complete his portion.  I had asked him to write them for his family and guests and he agreed.)

Am I embarrassed?  Of course I am.  I had my bridal shower Thank You’s out in record time – THREE DAYS.   I’m itching to blog.  And more importantly, I want everyone to know how very thankful Kenny and I are that they shared such a magical day with us!

With that said, if those Thank You cards aren’t in the mail by April 1, well, all I gotta say is THEY BETTER… cause I got some bloggin to do.

Please leave me a comment and give me a guilt trip. I need it.
