Let The Epicness Ensue

Okay, so it's quite possible that I've hyped up this "Epicness" a whole lot. And I didn't really realize I was doing that (much) until about 8 million people asked me what this "NEWS" was.

And well, first of all, it's not "News" it's just something that we did and I'm going to show you. Second of all, it was maybe more like 6 people that asked. And third of all, no I'm not pregnant.

So then I was like, well shoot, will this just be a big let down when I finally reveal this wonderful magic? And thennnnnnn, then I looked at the magic again and smiled heartily and thought,
"Nope...it's still pretty epic."

So I guess there's no real way of introducing it any longer....

But first: The Back Story & Outtakes.

A few weeks ago, The Dizzle and I marched ourselves down to The Goodwill and dropped 50 Bones on matching sweater vests, turtlenecks, and Mom & Dad Jeans, respectively. Oh, and let's not forget the Christmas Tree Wine Glasses (filled with raspberry salad dressing because we didn't have any wine. Shocking, I know.)

We then came home, and got to work.

We put up our VERY professional backdrop (a.k.a. TAPED our bed sheet to the windows) and put down the "Snow" (a.k.a. our COMFORTER. On The Ground......Dedication, I tell you.).

We then proceeded to take MANY. MANY photos.

I give you one of my favorite outtakes:


I have taken the liberty to point out all the things I have deemed wonderful, starting with our glorious Mom & Dad Jeans. Oh, lordy, these bad boys came so high up on our waists. I had some major "fupa" going on, that's for sure.

Can we also take note of our running shoes. Because nothing says "awkward" like some high-waisted jeans and running shoes.

Let's not forget to point out the rolled up poster on the floor as well as a window screen poking out from behind the sheet. Those were completely forgotten about until much later.

Here is another one of my faves. I gotta say, The Dizzle has some Raw Modeling Talent.

And here is our first draft of what we were going for.....


But then we ended up going through Tiny Prints and using one of their templates. And so here I give you the epic finale. Our very FIRST holiday card together.

The Future Mr. & Mrs. Dixon wishing you a very happy holiday:


And there you have it.
Was it worth the wait??? ;)



Happy Holidays!
xoxo
