Snail Mail!

I absolutely LOVE getting mail. 
Who doesn't?
Even if it is something I ordered and am expecting, I still get really excited. 

Isn't this the cutest envelope ever??
I ordered some prints from Flapper Doodle when she was having her $1 print sale. 
I was so happy with the ones I picked out.
I am definitely keeping this envelope as well!

Reasons I am not a Grown Up #3

Last night at dinner, I pulled out one of the two kids meals toys from my purse. This toy was actually a game, so Tim and I played it while we were waiting for our food. 
It was actually a fun game (thank you Chick-fil-a).
I think the other people in the restaurant were giving us weird looks. 
But we had fun anyways.

P.S. Tim and I have entered to win $100,000 Ultimate Wedding. We need you to vote for us so that we can win!

DIY: Bridesmaid Cards

All of my bridesmaid have finally received their cards, so I can share them with you!
We are definitely on a budget with this wedding, so I made them myself.

I made four cards, one for my matron of honor, junior maid of honor, and two bridesmaids.

- Cardstock
- Extra scrapbook paper
- Scissors
- Pen/Pencil/Marker
- Stamp (optional)

I found a clip art image of a dress that I liked. I printed it out and then traced it on the back of my scrapbook pages. Then cut out your dress! To make the card I took card stock and folded it in half. Then glue your dress to the front of the card and write a note on the inside.

Here is a picture of my cards.

Then I placed my cards in these really pink envelopes and mailed them off.
I put a special delivery stamp on the front. It was really cute.

I had a lot of fun making them! 


P.S. Tim and I have entered to win $100,000 Ultimate Wedding. 
We need you to vote for us so that we can win!

Wedding Filled Weekend

Warning: Mushy gushy post filled with wedding stuff, love, and happiness. 

This weekend was beyond wonderful.
I got to spend the majority of it with my future husband doing various wedding activities. 
On Saturday we had our engagement pictures taken by his wonderful and talented sister. 
She has not edited all of them yet but has put a few on her website.

This one is my favorite so far.
I just love him so much. 

We also were able to see the outdoor venue for our wedding ceremony. 
It is so perfect and beautiful.
I cannot wait to stand there and marry my best friend. 

This morning, Tim and I went to a wedding party at Crate and Barrel. 
They opened the store only for couples registering and gave us the royal treatment. 
They even had a photo booth!! 

We had so much fun picking out items for our future home (now we just need to find somewhere to live).
Since we registered with Crate & Barrel, we were eligible to enter to win a $100,000 Ultimate Wedding. 
Of course, I entered us! Now, I need your help. 
And please ask all your friends to vote for us as well! 
A huge thank you in advance!!!

Happy List

Finding the Tootsie Roll Pop wrapper with the guy shooting a star! 
When I was younger, I always thought this wrapper was something spectacular. 

Starting to organize my life! Yay! 
Episodes of The Big Bang Theory on DVD.

These plates I got for $.89 that remind me of something Busy Bee Lauren would have in her home.
Finally getting to wear my new outfit for my engagement pictures on Saturday!
The last thing on my happy list is that I found out I passed the Praxis II exam! This made me super extra happy.

What is on your happy list this week?

New Project

I have had this memory board up since high school. 
It is full of pictures, postcards, cards, movie tickets, quotes, and key chains. 
I am looking forward to having a free day so I can update it. 
Whenever I found a picture I didn't like I would just cover it up with a new picture. 
Plus I think the top is just a little dusty.

Do you have something you are looking forward to working on?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
I hope you all had an amazing day full of love and laughter! 
My first graders definitely made it interesting day!
They are so sweet. 

Look at the sweet treats I received!
I haven't had Fun Dip in a very long time. I hope I don't make a mess when I eat it. haha.

Tim and I went out Sunday night because trying to go out on a weeknight is nearly impossible. 
We went out for Italian (my favorite) and it was delicious!
I can't wait until next year when can celebrate as a married couple. :) 

p.s. Don't you love my DIY gift bag?

Calling All Crafters!

I need the help of all you crafters! 
One of our local Blockbusters is going out of business, so of course Tim and I decided to raid it and see if we could find any good deals. We found some decent movies for $4 and a some new releases for $10. 
We also found these small movie posters. They were 25 for $1. How could we say no to that?

Now we have no idea what to do with them. They are awesome and we view them as wonderful pieces of art,  but we need a crafty and creative way to display them, that doesn't take up a whole lot of space. 
This is where I need your help! 
Do you have any wonderful ideas? How would you display them?

Reasons I am not a Grown Up #2

I get very very excited about school supplies. 
I ordered a new lunch box and it came yesterday. I heard the doorbell and pretty much flew down two flights of stairs because I was so excited to get my lunch box!

Can you blame me? 
Isn't it super cute?

A Silly Thing Like Sleep

It is amazing how a silly thing like a sleep schedule is so important in everyday life. 
I have been on college schedule for the past three years. 
And now having to get up around 6 am is difficult. 
Especially since I can't fall asleep until after 11 pm. 
I get a burst of energy between 8 and 9 pm. I work like crazy and then lose track of time. It throws my whole sleeping pattern off.  Sigh. I guess I just need to try harder to stick to a routine. 

How is your sleep schedule? What do you do to maintain it?
