A (Brief) Tour of Our Living Room

Well, for a brief moment when I took this picture the living room was not in total chaos.  I'm sure it will still be be crazy until after the wedding.  Then we'll get back to normal.  Anyway, just thought I would share!

Makeup Brush Roll

After taking a wedding makeup lesson and purchasing some brushed, I decided I needed a brush roll rather than just using the little plastic cases that came with the brushes.  So I just sort of jumped in and made one.

Since it turned out so successfully, I may try to re-create it, and perhaps, GASP! create a pattern and instructions!

Bachelorette Getaway!

Last weekend, I whisked away to Las Vegas for a bachelorette getaway with 2 of my favorite ladies!  While we where there we ate some AMAZING food (check it out on my other blog by clicking here), checked out Red Rocks Canyon, visited the Atomic Testing Museum, and checked out some also really awesome outlets.  (Someday, I'd love to go back there with some more $$ on hand!).

And, we did also partake in one night of bachelorette's a picture of me in my sash, veil, and giant flashing ring...

End of an era

Goodbye Suby. You were a good car and we shared many good times. You were my first new car and it is with a heavy heart that I move on. You were my 6th car (8th if you count motorcycles) but lasted the longest - 5 good years. 

And... hello Toyota! Meet my new 1993 Toyota Hilux 4WD. Looking forward to lots of good times.

A Trial and A Shower

Labor Day weekend was all about the wedding!

My mom flew out from New York to spend some time with us in Seattle and then she and I flew down to California on Friday.  Saturday morning bright and early we headed down to Heidi's Studio in the Carmel Crossroads Shopping Village for my pre-wedding hair trial.  It wasn't the full extent of what it will be for the wedding, but more just of a chance to figure out the general concept.

Then we zipped back to Felton for my Wedding/Bridal Shower which Connie & Mary (my step-mom and future mother-in-law) put on for me!  It was totally wonderful and I couldn't believe how many people where there!  It was just a nice feeling and so nice to see everyone before the wedding!

Here's a quick shot of Sam, my bridesmaid, making me a bouquet for the rehearsal out of all the ribbons from the gifts everyone brought.  She did a ridiculously awesome job! Seriously...professional quality.


Yes, that is over 120 handcut large burlap triangles.  They will grow up to become 200 feet of burlap bunting for decorating our venue. If you have never worked with burlap before, it's messy and the little fibers are really pokey, sort of light dog hair. But it looks quite nice.
