Save The Date

Don't be late...for a very important date! ha :)

I have been dying to share this with all of you, but I really wanted to wait until our Save The Date cards were in the mail (and possibly in the hands) to our guests!

Jenn at In Munchkinland did a fab job! She designed my blog and I have been watching all her other blog updates and dying for a new one, but wedding stuff first, so it was a no brainer when we wanted a custom card that we could love. She nailed it on her first try! There were no edits at all. She even got us a steal of a deal on the printing and envelopes! I am excited about working with her after the New Year on all our other wedding stationery.

So without further ado.... *drumroll*

What's in a Name?

Today I'm linking up with Lora - this absolutely fantastic and hysterical blogger I found via Twitter a few days ago! Seriously, you gotta go read this post. You'll laugh out loud.

The question of the day is...how did your blog get it's name?

The Life & Times of E1

I know, I know...it's kinda generic. A lot of people think I'm creative, but in reality, I never seem to be when it's ME that I need to be creative for! Argh! haha

My nickname within my dad's family is E1. Why?? Well, I'm Erin. My cousin, Jacob, married an Erin. We have the same initials - EMM. We have identical first and last names and only different middle names. It started to be funny at family meals when someone would say Erin and we'd both answer...at the same time. Since I am the oldest and the "original" Erin, they started calling me E1 and she is E2. The only day we've ever swapped was on her wedding day...ha. We're goofy, I know. ;) The thing is...I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person than her to share my name with! They live on the east coast because Jacob is in the Navy, but when we visited them a few years ago, E2 and I would pay for meals using our debit cards because they both had the same name. hahaha She really, really wanted to confuse a waiter! No one ever said anything, but they had to be wondering.

So when it came down to naming my little piece of blogger land, it seemed appropriate to incorporate my nickname into the title. This blog is all about my life. And the crazy times that have happened. I have contemplated changing it a million times, but therein lies the million dollar question, what the heck would I change it to? So it stays.
