It Just Fell Between the Cracks...

All that I've wanted to share with you that is! I have been doing a few creative things but it's hard when there's so much to do outside. Well on one of those hot days, I stayed indoors and made this vinyl word art for our wall. It's been an idea in my head for a long time and the words are just perfect since we remodeled and built new walls and did a lot of work on our home ourselves. 
I've also been meaning to share pictures of our new furniture! I know there are a few girls over at 2Peas that have been asking me to share so finally (since we got them on July 13th), here are our first pieces of adult furniture!

So, there you go! I'm finally sharing a little bit of what I've been doing all summer long! Next on my list is to take pictures of some of the layouts I've done and to share pics from the zoo with you! Have a great Wednesday!

Summer Fun

We have been so busy having fun this summer! Over the 4th of July we spent a few days at the lake and our puppy Mya got her first chance to swim in the lake and she loved it! Here are just a few of my favorite pictures from the weekend.

Wedding Planning!!!

We've been engaged for a month! So far I have started on invitations, info cards, programs, center pieces and flowers. We also have a reception site, a church and the pastor, our caterer and our photographer all booked. I have so much fun stuff that I'm doing myself that I decided to start a website for it all. I've been using for a lot of my information and inspiration and the websites that they use are very cool is my new wedding planning website!!! Come check it out!

Long Time, No See!

Well it's been a crazy last 2 weeks! We had 5 girls staying at our house and lots of family activities over the fourth of July weekend. It was all a lot of fun but I'm glad to finally relax again. Here are some pictures of the fun we've been having lately! Mostly the fun Mya has been having. She deserves it though. We had her spayed on Friday and she is doing really good. Tomorrow we get our new couches delivered which will be great for that relaxing that I was talking about. Ok, here's the pictures!

Friday, July 2


Alright it's my last day of things that "make me happy"! And because it's Friday, I've got some really good ones! 
Chad loves cake...but I love cupcakes!!! (I know they're basically the same thing...) One of his cousins and I made Fourth of July cupcakes last night and they are sooo yummy!

It's the 4th of July weekend! Probably my favorite holiday behind Christmas. I can't wait to see more family and have lots of great food and set off some fireworks! 
Boating, skiing, camping, campfires and smores!!! Just some of the wonderful things that I love about summer and the 4th of July! There's just something about stripping away the TV, internet, cell phones (and showers?) that really makes you appreciate nature and the company that you keep. Ok, I'm kidding about the showers....there will be showers at our camp site so don't get all weirded out that we're gonna all smell awful or something. This will also be Mya's first time at the lake and I'm so excited to see her take to the water! 

Oh, one last thing that is making me happy today?! Our wedding day is exactly one year from today! :D I'll be back next week with pictures of our adventure! Anyone have any fun or special traditions that they'll be doing this weekend? Be safe!

I'm still happy!

It's Thursday and I'm still finding things that make me happy! Today is busy busy busy because I'm counting inventory. We've had problems with this because some people didn't go to kindergarten apparently, but....I am trying to count it myself now. Not an easy task, let me tell you. There are probably 150 different products that need counted and they range anywhere from a couple pints to 2000 gallons. It's kept me super busy today and I can't believe it's already 3:00! Now on to the "makes me happy" part of today.

Tonight we will be going to Mexican night at a local bar...yummy! A bunch of friends are meeting up for this, which will be a nice change from the family overload. 

This could definitley make me happy too! Other than supper tonight I'm just glad that tomorrow is Friday!!! I know I will be tired over the weekend but it will be so much fun that it will be worth it!

Have a wonderful Thursday night everyone!
