Save the Date-Wake Forest Style

 Break out the black and gold cupcakes!

So if you know me or happened to read my frantic tweets from March 17th, then you'll know the Mr. got accepted as a resident at Wake Forest Baptist Health so we will be moving to Winston-Salem, NC in mid-June.

Since Winston-Salem is home to Wake Forest University I better invest in some black and gold to wear to the occasional athletic event to cheer on the Demon Deacon's.  {Don't worry UGA my heart is always with you}

I'm thinking this sequin number may be just perfect. Maybe with some tax return money considering it's $160.

Of course with this big change also means we will be moving into a new place that hopefully has a little more space. Fingers cross we can afford loft living! Maybe I should give this black and gold color scheme a chance.  I went to for some inspiration and found 3 items that strike my fancy.

Mosaic Lamp for $179.91

Black and Gold lamp shade for $9.99

Black and Gold mirror for $195
Hey maybe I could redesign that mirror and those lamps into fun Save the Date cards. We didn't go with traditional photo Save the Dates-you can see our real ones here. However, if we had I think we would have used one of our engagement photos from our photog, Rob Ingram.

Which one do you like best? Anyone have any design connections in Winston-Salem? If so leave a comment and let me know!

Definitely like the last one the best! And, as always, I see you....I chose a black and silver horizontal striped tunic top/dress for my March piggy bank a week or so's black and silver, not gold, but it's only $15! Think about it!

I like the last one the best too. Your move sounds exciting and hooray for tax returns!

Oddly enough, my wife and I (she was the resident and now faculty at Wake) are UGA fans as well. Good luck to you in this ACC hell!
