Today is a Cleaning Day

Today is a cleaning day... so I am going to make a quick post so that I can get back to work!

I wanted to show you a picture of the finished wedding arrow sign I made for our wedding. We put it near the ceremony along the pathway to direct guests on where to go. I think it looks really pretty in front of the white roses. If you want to see how I made it click here.

By the way, two days ago marked our three months of being married anniversary. I can't believe that it has already been three months!

Married Life Update & Honeymoon Pics

I thought I'd check in and let you know how married life is going. You guessed it... it is going swell. :) It's nice to be able to spend a lot of time with my best friend and not have to say goodbye to each other every night anymore. I've gotten into the whole "wifey" routine quite nicely I think, although I may not always enjoy cooking dinner and cleaning the house. ;0)

I just realized I never shared any pictures from our honeymoon on here. Here are several pictures! We stayed at the Sandals resort in Antiqua (a small island in the Caribbean) and it was absolutely beautiful! We had an amazing time. I wish we were still there.

Wooden Heart Table Numbers

Today I want to share with you the table numbers I made for our wedding! Very simple and easy to do and it added that unique homemade touch.

I bought some wooden hearts, number stencils, a craft sponge and brown craft paint from Michaels.

After I finished sponging the numbers on the hearts, I let them dry. Then I took the hearts outside and sprayed them with Aleene's Spray Acrylic Sealer to protect them so that no moisture would ruin them. Once they were dry I had my dad drill two holes at the top and we tied twine through each hole and tied them on the table centerpieces.

Here is a table number hanging on one of the white iron centerpieces.

We also hung them from the mason jar centerpieces too.

Starting Out Small

Time for a new post! I know... I am really overdue! Stay with me folks, I hope to get more consistent again. One reason that I haven't been blogging is that I'm really busy (but who isn't?). My other reason is that whenever I think about blogging I just get so overwhelmed thinking about everything I need to catch up on since I went MIA on here a couple months before the wedding. Ok, enough excuses!!

Today I decided to get on here and start out small. That's why I decided to show you the LOVE mugs I talked about awhile back. Here is a picture of them with the flowers in them on our guest book table. Don't they look fabulous?! I just loved them! Special thanks to our amazing florist, Amy Degraw, with Brown Bunny Flowers. She is wonderful! If you are local and are looking for a wedding florist, I definitely recommend her!
