So mad at myself!

I am SO peeved at myself right now. I took some great pictures of the gift I made for my friend and I accidentally deleted them off of my camera while taking pictures at her wedding. Oh I could kick myself if I could actually reach my behind with my foot.

On with is what I made. Please pardon the quality of the picture as it was taken with my blackberry.

It' a 6x6 minibook of all of the pictures from the bachelorette soiree' that I put on for her. "Her" being my friend Whitney. Whitney and I met in nursing school, first quarter. We hit it off the first week. We've been great friends ever since. I had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in her wedding over the weekend. She looked stunning. Made me want to get married again.

Here we are waiting for our cue to head out for the ceremony.
I told you she looked stunning!

She's Crafty: Part 1

For the last week I have been working on a project for the bride to be and I can't wait to share it with you! I had a vision and it all came together so great. I can't tell you much right now in case she sees this. I'm giving it to her tomorrow and will blog about it tomorrow night. I will tell you that it is sassy, cute, and fun. I had a lot of fun making it and I really hope Whitney loves it. If she doesn't, I hope she fakes it!

Tuesday Ramblings

Yesterday I was surprised to walk outside at 7am to find it to be 47 degrees outside. I needed my winter coat! I thought summer was coming to an end, until I left work at it was about 67 degrees. I've even started to notice the leaves falling. Then today it turns out to be 87 degrees but still chilly this morning. I have to say that this cold then hot thing does not make it easy to plan Mackenzie's wardrobe for the day. Poor kid is either going to be freezing or sweating.

This weekend is going to be super busy for me. It starts Thursday. Thursday I work, then rehearsal dinner for a wedding I'm in. Friday I am so excited to spend some time with my friend Kat. It's been a while since we've gotten some girl time.

Me and Kat

Back to what the weekend will be like....Saturday I get to help prep all the food for the wedding, then pedicures, and then finishing up prepping food. It will be an all day affair. Sunday is the wedding. We start getting ready at 10am, the ceremony is at 4pm....I think. I told you it was going to be busy! I have never been in a wedding except for when I was a little girl. This is totally new to me. I threw the bachelorette party this last weekend, it was so much fun. Any tips for helping keep the bride calm? I remember my wedding......that's all I will say about that.

Last weekend we had a lot of fun. I had the bachelorette party and then we got to see some friends. We love our friends so much. Can't forget the hair appointment I had to sass up my style a bit. I also love my hair stylist. She rocks. If only she were free on Sunday to style my hair.

Paulina has blog candy!

If you are at all crafty, go look at my friend Paulina's giveaway! She has some great blog candy up for grabs! But I want to win it so maybe you shouldn't look. :) Become a follower of her blog while your at it. She is an AMAZING card maker and has such great ideas.

I would love to spend more time playing with all my scrapbooking supplies. The last thing I did was put "Kenzie" up on Mackenzie's wall. And I made a tissue paper pom pom. I used my cricut expression for the letters and I think it turned out super cute. Like I said in my previous post, summer has been very busy for us. I do have some different projects that I'm working on. Hopefully I'll get to work on them soon!

Summer Fun!

We have been super busy this summer! It seems like we have something going on every weekend and not enough time to get everything done. We've been having lots of fun though! One of my highlights was meeting up with a friend that I haven't seen in ages and letting our little ones meet and play together. We spent the day at the zoo, it was great!

We've also been going to some summer festivals that have been going on. The weather has been pretty good and I'm hoping it stays that way! We've been working on getting our yard looking better and met with a landscaper the other night. We just don't have the time to pull all the overgrown weeds! Do you have any tips on keeping your yard looking nice?
