Misc Monday

I'm Linking up with Charissa for Misc Monday!

We went to a Halloween party this weekend. I saw this idea on Pinterest.
I went as a bag of Jelly Belly's and Jared went as one of the Greasers from the movie "Grease." 
You should have seen us trying to get to the party....
I had to ride in the back seat sitting on my knees so that I would not pop any balloons! REDIC

Lauren dressed as a Geisha...ironic?!

  I went to a cooking class a couple of nights ended up going pretty long so I text Jared to tell him to go ahead a eat without me. 
This was his response!???? 
What am I the little house wife?

Congrats to Mike and Star who got married recently.
Here are a few pics from the venue.
I'm a bad pics of the bride and groom?

They had a photo booth with different sizes of mustaches!
Hysterical and so fun. 
Wish we would have had one of these.
Jared was having lots of fun trying the mustaches...this one looks just like his dad.

Us at our table

I love fresh flowers on a cake.
Its so pretty!

I'm leaving today on a plane to go do new job training in DC!
Yikes....I'm a little nervous. 

Prayers would be appreciated :)

Hopefully I can see something cool.... Like this

I kinda doubt it though.
I hear training is long and that I'll have stuff to review/study at night.
Oh well....I'm really excited about my new job!

Mini Giveaway!

Good morning everyone...Happy Thursday.
I wanted to do a mini giveaway!
I'm calling it a mini because I did some crafting a few nights ago with my girlfriend and our projects turned out to be a success.

I found the idea while I was pinning...
Of course I immediately put it on my DIY board. 
You can find the originator of this idea here 
You can also follow me on Pinterest here

So this inspired me to try it for myself. hair looks a hot mess!

So they turned out pretty good and I ended up with two of these little babies.
I don't think it is necessary to have more than one so I thought I would put it up here and see if someone would like to have it by entering a mini giveaway!

To Enter:
Simply be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment saying that you are

I'll pick a winner on Oct. 18th (since it's my birthday)
Seems like a good day to give someone else a little present :)
I'll contact the winner by email to get your address

Good Luck!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

We are half way though the week
It is time for another addition of What I'm Loving Wednesday.
I'm linking up with jamie....stop over and link up too
All my loves are from pinterest this week...go figure!

Love this whole outfit...prolly would upgrade the boots for boots with heels!

Looks so comfortable

Love these shoes! Need them in black too

I love this watch...I think I would like a darker brown though...just thinking

I love her curls but not her sorry to be harsh first thing in the morning

Very cute!

I think I have to do this. I love stinking cute

I love the idea of these little would be cool if you used the text from your favorite book to make it too

Last but not least...this made me chuckle and is totally true!

Hope everyone has a good rest of the week and can hang on till Friday!

DIY rosette braclet

I recently saw this super cute bracelet courtesy of Pinterest
Someone made cute little rosette's and attached them to a piece of cut ribbon.
You need a piece of ribbon long enough to tie around your wrist in a bow.
You can pick any color and fabric that you want.
You need about half a yard of fabric. More if you want bigger rosettes than mine.

Cut into 1.5 inch strips.
you need about 5 or 6 rosette depending on the size of your wrist

Take cut strips and twist until entire strip is wrap/twisted
Then you can tie a baby know in the end and start winding the rest of the strip around the knot
Its easiest to keep flower on the table so it keeps its shape
Then after it is done...glue end of string to side of flower.
To hold flower glue the back of the flower to a piece of felt.
Then line up flowers on the want them tight together.
Hot glue flowers into place on your Ribbon

I dont think this picture does the bracelet justice but they turned out so cute!
I'm going to make more in extra colors :)

I made this one too!

We also stained our neck. It was way overdue....check it out!
Thats the hubs walking away from the picture!

Also a bit REDIC! I saw a christmas tree this weekend at Home Depot...WTF?
It was only Oct 8th?

Happy Crafting Tuesday!
