So the plan is that Craig and I are suppose to do wedding planning tomorrow. Seeing as though we have planned absolutely nothing...seriously, nothing....I thought maybe I should get started. This way I would have something to bring to the table. So I figure the first thing that we need to do is send out the save the dates....here are a few adorable ones that I found...
In fact I was able to check off one huge item already! I completed this one a few weeks ago and have been a total slacker about telling you guys about it!!
I made my very first dress :)
Actually it was quite difficult. I had never tried anything like it before...and of course I decided to use this very specific print (so everything had to line up ever so perfectly) and its a jersey material (so it moved and shifted every time I tried to make a stitch!) Also, it has a cowl neck and drawstrings at the top and bottom....and if you look real hard you can see the pockets (I think I did a pretty dynamite job of lining up the pattern so you can hardly see them)
aaaaaannnnddd.....Ta Da!!! After several hours of hard work -and with a little help- I made this. I know the picture is poor quality, I desperately need a new camera, but you get the idea.
Well, this year (to avoid the crowds) the husband and I have decided to celebrate Valentine's Day a few days early. So we'll do the lovey dovey thing tonight. I'm actually really excited, I feel like we haven't spent any time together over the past few weeks. I just started a new job, Craig has work and meetings throughout the week....and every other second goes to the cafe at church or me getting ready for the stylehouse *I'll tell you more about that later! epppp!!!*
Nothing too crazy tonight just dinner and maybe dessert somewhere...or a movie. No chocolates though, cause I cant have them. Wait. Should I have bought him chocolates? Crap.
While I think on that here are some ADORABLE Valentine's Day inspired treats and goodies....
I'm in the process of making some curtains for my kitchen....just a small valence above the sink. The kitchen just might be my favorite place in the house. Not just because the food is there....but thanks for the hint(!)....but I sooo enjoy shopping for kitchen gadgets and pictures and cookie jars and....
okay, you get the point.
So while doing a little bit of online 'window' shopping I found some neat things.
Laguiole Cheese Knive Set and Steak Knives
I'm actually very good at using chopsticks but c'mon! These are so easy!
