Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

My parents have been married 40 years! Pretty cool, huh? 

For their anniversary they are going to Hawaii and recreating their honeymoon. They are even staying at the same hotel they stayed at 40 years ago. This was all my dad's idea, which I thought was pretty sweet. I hope Ryan and I are as cute as they are 37½ years from now.

Happy Anniversary mom and dad!

Making do!

 This bathroom was pretty rough when we moved in. Luckily we have two bathrooms.

The shower doesn't work and is bright pink and the door to the bathroom was missing... something we didn't realize until we moved in. It was really just an ugly bathroom with a cushy grandma seat and all (that was the first thing to go). The shower is on our list of things to do but since it's our second shower it's pretty low on the list. The bathroom door was a priority though, so we put that in a few months after we moved in. 

At first I was just going to let this room sit and not decorate it until after we remodel, but after a few months I just couldn't take it anymore. I used paint I have left over from other room for the walls and cabinets. I also bought some cute hand towels and yesterday I finally got around to making some curtains out of leftover fabric. Someday I'll have a good looking bathroom but for now I think it turned out pretty cute for how much I spent on it.

More Valentines...

This is my second year teaching the Valentines accordion class at Paper Source and I think I like this year's end result a lot better. This year it had a hard cover and a super cute pink box. I am also proud to announce that the Santana Row store ranks at the top of the company for workshops. Go SRW! I am glad I am part of such a rockin' team.

Side note...

Every Sunday at church Ryan and I teach seven three year olds which is really fun but also exhausting. Having a cute class helps a lot, though. One of them made this for me for Valentines day and told me about 8 times during class that I had to make sure I put it on my fridge. Ha, this is for you Avy... 

Happy Valentines day!

Valentine's shower!

Isn't she pretty! She's getting married in 5 weeks. Yay!

Jen's shower was last week and I think she really loved it. My mother and I had lots of talented and fabulous people helping us. The Cooks who are long time friends of both my and Jen's family offered to have the party at their house. They run a rental business, have a party store, and own a beautiful house which made it a perfect location. It really would not have been as beautiful and nice as it was without them.

Romantic huh?

Lucky girl!

Also I was so thankful for Nicole Clark who took all these pictures. After the craziness of the shower I realized I had a total of 2 pictures taken. Oh well, mine were not as cute anyways.

I want to grow old with you

Since Valentine's day is coming up I wanted to pay tribute to 
one of my favorite couples Charles and Ray Eames.

Their designs have become icons of the 20th Century.
