BATMAN

16 Jul

I feel like I had something specific to post, but I can’t remember it. Maybe because I’m super excited that I’m going to see THE DARK KNIGHT tonight! Could be… So I’ll just share a couple photos that I had on my hard drive.

1. I bought this sweet little watering can at Goodwill the other day, and it looks DARLING with red carnations.

2. MY LITTLE PONY RIDE! OMG! I found this in the Greece Ridge mall and got too excited.

Also, my boss got a tattoo today. Came out pretty nice, right? After doing Bad tattoo of the day for a couple years, I have become really afraid of bad tattoo artists. I was super nervous for him, and I wasn’t so sure about the orange, but I was proven wrong!

It’s mah biiiiirthday!

15 Jul

I’m 25 today! Crazy. My younger self thought I would have kids by now. We aren’t doing anything crazy tonight; just going out to dinner. It should be fun though.

^ The avails board at work, just so there is a pic in this post.

Wedding Invitations

14 Jul

I know I said that I wouldn’t write about the wedding here, but this is crafty, and since I haven’t posted anything crafty in a while, I don’t think you’ll mind. 🙂

Here are my wedding invitations! I originally wanted to use double sided pink scrapbooking paper, but I couldn’t find any, so I went with this instead. It’s two sheets of paper glued together. Bonus: they were only 15 cents a sheet! Can you believe that? Score! The info and the little inserts (directions, rsvp, and registry info) are printed on cardstock, and I only needed one steet per invitation.
Normally I don’t like all my text centered, but it just seemed right for this. I don’t know if it’s because it was for an invitation or what, but…

The little circle you see on the tip of the envelope flap is a silver floral sticker. In case you couldn’t tell, my color scheme is pink and grey/silver.

I should have taken a close up of the knot design. That bad boy is giving the cake designer some trouble. I sent her my design idea and she said that she didn’t know if she could do it justice. Here’s hoping!

^ cake design I sent baker.

And that’s them!  I blurred out the important info so you can’t stalk me, lol.  What do you think?

How I spent my Tuesday Evening

9 Jul

I didn’t buy batteries for my camera until today, so I had to document the event with my phone. Sorry about that!

1. Little scallops, washed and drained & all the ingredients at my disposal.

2. The topping that the bread crumbs and oil made + scallops in butter, salt/pepper, and parsley.

3. The whole thing after it had baked! (Please note new recipe card holder which I got on sale for $2! So cute!)

4. My dinner! Yes, I drink wine with ice & a straw because I am classy like that. I made the pasta salad too, but I just followed the recipe that was on the label of the seasoning. I can type it up if anyone wants it.

5. Yum! (Horrible hair day, lol. BTW, it’s been straight since Monday. It will be curly again tomorrow.)

6. Twilight while I was cooking.

7. Twilight while I was eating.

I used the scallops recipe from here, but changed it a little because I didn’t have everything it required. I don’t know if it’s because I used little scallops or what, but I had TONS of bread crumbs left over. AND I put way too many on top! I would use maybe a quarter of what the recipe required next time I make this.

But over all it came out good, and it was good today for lunch too!

I can has house?

7 Jul

Oh blog, surely you will forgive me for not posting last week. I have big news!

JOHN AND I HAVE A HOUSE!

Here she is! It has 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. It is in a neighborhood with young families and on a quiet street. So cute! There is even a secret room (ok, so it’s the attic) in one room that you have to access through the closet. It’s like Narnia…IN MY HOUSE!

Sadly, John wants to turn that whole area into a big master suite, with its own bathroom and everything. That would be pretty great, but…Narnia!

We had our inspection today and the house passed with flying colors. Only a couple changes are needed, and the seller might have to pay for one of them. Awesome! The inspector asked John how we sleep at night since we “stole the house from under them.” or something like that. LOL.

Aaaaand this is what it will look like when we add a front porch next year. I’ll keep the brick and window and all that, but it was easier to photoshop over it all. Heh.
