Nothing Special :)

28 03 2011

Hello world and happy monday! This weekend I spent most of my time by a sap stove. Collin boils sap to make maple syrup and its a long process but it’s time spent with him ;). Awww, right? I did go get a manicure this weekend too and it was very relaxing and enjoyable. Also, guys I am over 2,000 views! Yahoo, keep on looking :).

So last blog, I was talking about sending out invitations and nothing has really happened since. I know people have already got them in the mail and I am still handing some out. I hope to find the next few people to give them too if not in the mailbox they go!

The sun is shinning here but the 30 degrees doesn’t make it feel so warm! 89 days until im married, can you believe it?





3 months! :)

Hey everyone! Happy Friday 🙂 Boy, do I just LOVE Fridays!  In New Hampshire its freezing out…not what you would call spring weather! BUT this morning I was driving to work and the sky was so blue and crystal clear without one cloud. I took it as a sign that God has got all these wedding plans taken care of and He is going to bless us with a beautiful day! 🙂

All of the flower girls have ordered their outfits and a few of them have come in. It looks adorable all together and the tutu and shoes match perfectly! BIG NEWS: I sent out my invitations today! EEEKKK! It made the fact I’m getting married really set in. I am also passing some of the invitations out to save on postage and to make it more personal :). It is beyond crazy how fast time is flying by. Now I am just waiting for everyone to rsvp and work on all the small little details!

Enjoy your day everyone because I sure am!

Just a snapshot from the past for fun! 🙂





Girls just wanna have fun! :)

Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your day! I ventured to Joann Fabrics today to purchase some tulle to start making the flower girls tutus. I ended up getting a color of tulle called “Toast”. Other colors I have seen were too dark or too light but this one was just right! (starting to sound like Goldilocks!)

First I cut the tulle into strips…now I don’t go by any measurements just start cutting and make a straight line from one end to the other! You fold the strip of tulle in half and wrap it around the elastic band like you would a scarf.

You keep on doing it again and again until the whole elastic band is filled up!

Final Product!:

Tada! It took just about 4 yards of tulle..and that’s all I bought but I finally got 1 done now 3 more to go! 🙂





96 more days….

The fact that there is now less than a 100 days left until our wedding scares me how fast it is going to go by!I have been getting things done left and right so it does feel good to cross things off the list. 😉

Saturday after shopping I came home jumped into some warm jammies and started working on the invitations. I got all of the paper cut out, printed, stamped, and put together! PHEW! Took me 2 1/2 hours but feels good that now I can send those suckers out! Also, I got all of the addresses I  needed!

100+ pieces of paper all cut out and ready to be printed!

Today I started working on little signs or labels you could call them for drinks and the reserved table.

I am planning on punching holes in the two top corners and string some ribbon in the holes! 🙂

I made this with old scrabble pieces and had seen this on someones wedding blog when the planning first began!

I made up this little saying to go next to it also with pieces of paper 🙂

We also made a down payment on our honeymoon! That means everything is booked and I am so ready to go! 🙂 Thats about it! Planning on sending out invitations by Friday! Have a wonderful day and rock on! 🙂





Long time no talk!

Happy Monday everyone! 🙂 I feel like it has been forever and I have lots of things to fill you in on!

Here we go! Happy belated St. Patrick’s Day! This is how I enjoyed mine:

I made the kids green eggs & they were beyond surprised that they would still taste the same. Skye actually made me pinky promise her they would still taste like eggs! Gave me a chuckle! 🙂

Friday, there was no school here so I took the kids to Coco Keys an indoor water park! It sure was a blast! 🙂

Saturday, my mom and I hit the roads and went shopping! We ended up with some awesome purchases. We bought ink for my printer so I could finally reprint out all of the invitations, thank you cards for my shower (whenever that is!), we got these cute little bags for favors (m&ms) and stamps for the bags, a glass vase with a cover to do unity sand as part of the ceremony (we are going to use two masons jars to pour the sand into the vase) a glass jug that dispenser drinks one which will have iced tea and another that will have water (we only found 1 so we are still looking for another). I think that might be it…6 hours later I was beat! We also got to make 2 stops at antique stores to find some neat decorations for the wedding! 🙂

Hope wherever you might be it’s not snowing like it is here! I am ready for spring and the warmth!





Just a rainy day…

16 03 2011

Hey! It is beyond crazy the amount of views I have been getting! Everyday becomes the “most viewed” day! It is very exciting so thank you for everyone who has jumped on in for the ride ! 🙂 Yesterday I accomplished another run, it was almost the same just a tad bit shorter because I was starting to feel the soreness! Yikes! Today I can barely walk my ankles and shins are in pain. 😦 Because it is raining buckets here I will not be able to venture outside so I am thinking about doing some sort of exercise on On Demand. If you have this you should check it out! There are some really awesome workouts that kick your butt!

Most of the flower girl mothers have order the outfits from my last blog! Now I have to go get some tulle to start working on those tutus.

That’s about it! Maybe I will go tanning tonight so I can get a small taste of summer, I always call it my 15 minutes in paradise! 8) Enjoy your day everyone and stay dry if you live anywhere near me!





Girls Rule, Boy Drool!

I was thinking and I have never told you about who is standing in our wedding for children. Well, I have to say we are having 4 very precious girls being our flower girls! & NO BOYS! 😉 nothing against boys, but these 4 girls are way too adorable to just be sitting in a chair at our wedding! Two of the girls Lexis & Ava are my cousins, and the other two girls Jenna & Tessa are Collin’s nieces.

For their attire I will be making them tutus to wear! Adorable right? I was not fond of most flower girl dresses and it will add a little funk that I like. 🙂 I am thinking making them a champagne color because it is in my dress. Also I am having them wear white t-shirts, white leggings, and some sandals. Check out what I found:

shirt.

leggings.

sandals.

Today I started making the elastic band for the tutu, you just sew together a piece of elastic band that you can buy at any craft store to the right size for who you are making it for 🙂

 

Very easy to do! Try it out, hopefully tonight I will be able to go out and get tulle to work on some tutus!
