Welcome to Friday friends! I am so ready for this (long) weekend. Any fun plans for the 4th??
All my phone pics this week are from the village Garden Walk my mom and I
attended on Saturday. Basically, people who have beautiful gardens open
up their yards for the day so people like me can walk through and see
what they got.
One woman had made a meditation garden in her backyard:
I'm joining Gussy Sews for week #5 of her Inspiration Workshop!
I've had so much fun doing this every week and also seeing how everyone
else interprets the prompt and the pictures they post. This week's
prompt is BATHROOMS.
show off my master bathroom. We have yet to redo it since we moved in 2
years ago and it is U.G.L.Y! Think carpet on the floors and sponge
painted walls ugly. Well we have been slowly collecting things over the
past few months to finally make this bathroom ours and get it out of the
80s. Here are some bathrooms that I wouldn't mind spending some time in
This is us - First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in a baby carrage...
Let's go back to June 2003: Boy meets girl (girls meets boy)
Boy likes girl (and girl likes boy)
Boy and girl start dating
Fast forward to February 2006: Boy asks girl to marry him (girl says yes!)
December 2006: Boy and girl buy first house
June 2007: Boy and girl get married!
January 2008: Boy and girl get a dog (Lola- she's a fun little spitfire)
June 2009: Boy and girl move out of first house
July 2009: Boy and girl move in to new house
New house is perfect size, in a quiet neighborhood, great school disctrict...hmm perfect for a family
August 2009: Boy and girl find out girl is pregnant!!!

far the most perfect, rewarding day they have experienced thus far)

is us folks. What a wild ride we are on. But its a rollercoaster we are
not looking to get off anytime soon. Little one keeps us on our toes.
She is learning something new everyday...and teaching us along the way
too. And we are still learning from each other as well.
My husband is by far more than I could have every imagined. He does so much for us and loves me through all of my faults.
I love you Jeff more and more every day! Thank you for everything you
have done for me and everything you have given me. I love our life and I
love spending every single day with you. I can't wait to add more to
Back in May (yes I am finally getting to write about it!) I decided to
do something that I've wanted to do for so long. I tried teaching myself
calligraphy when I was planning our wedding but it never quite worked
out. So I finally took a calligraphy class through community ed at a
local high school. My crafty friend Kelly and I signed up together and
got to spend some girl time being creative. It was once a week for six
weeks and it was so much fun! I cannot believe how much I learned in six
weeks. Really, you should have seen some of my work week 1...HORRID!
The instructor is going to be offering another class in the fall and
teaching a different technique so we will be making sure we sign up for
that one as well.
Remember this picture from yesterday??
for my grandma's birthday had to be sent out right after the last week
of class so I practiced extra hard and decided to use my new found
skills to add a special touch to the invitations for her special
birthday. I knew trying to use calligraphy for the envelopes would be
way too much for me. So I decided to just write her name on the actual
See! I did that!!!
Proud of myself, can't you tell??
This coming Saturday we will be celebrating my grandmother's 90th
birthday! I'm so excited to spend this time with my family and honor 90
years of my grandmother's beautiful life.
I had the pleasure of making the invitations with the only instruction being the colors sage green and purple.
I absolutely love how they turned out. I love the doily! Definitely going to be using this design again.
I didn't take any pictures wtih my phone this week (can you believe it???) so no Phone Photo Friday, but I just wanted to stop in and say hi and have a happy weekend! These past two weeks have been super busy at work and preparing for work with a new meeting I started so I'm hoping things calm down soon and I can spend some time showing you what I've been up to in my free time!
Any fun plans for this weekend? I hope you have fun if you do.
And because I just can't leave this post without a picture here is an older one that is one of my favs
gotta love the bathroom that is totally crying for a redo (it was like this when we moved in) haha soon my friends, soon
