Wedding Projects and a Day FULL of hard work!

Today was a great day spent with a eggstra special friend.  ;)  We worked on a wedding project for a good 6 hours perhaps.  It was intense, it was discouraging, and then... the light at the end of the tunnel.  It was an awesome feeling to be done for the day.  What were we working on??  You will just have to wait to see!

Hmm... spray paint... big box.  SMILES...

Nat working on her frame and wishing it was a cereal box tiara.

Showing off the frame.  Hello!

Yes, it is a few hours later and we are still painting!  What fun...

Now for the light at the end of the tunnel part.  Almost finished for the day.

Smoothing out our burlap and loving my new sticky burlap fingers.  Why didn't I do this sooner?  I love hours of sticky hairy fingers!

Thank you so much Nat for hanging in there and seeing the job through.  I can't wait to do the fun part! Like tiaras, decorations, and such!  Enjoy the photos and happy guessing!

Wedding Countdown

We are getting married in less than 2 months!  Holy cow... that went fast.  We had a year to plan and it flew by.  I have changed my mind on everything about 100 times, picked new things to love, new styles, colors, ideas...  Thanks for sticking with me babe, I know our house is a wedding planning whirlwind, with pictures and ribbon and hot glue all over!  It will all be worth it though and I can't wait to have a crazy good wedding filled with friends and family and fooooood!

These pictures are from a great weekend in Haleiwa with my family.  Who doesn't love a stay-cation!?

Great Strides Walk Honolulu 2011

Join the Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis this year in Honolulu.  May 28th from 8:30 until 12:30 in Kapiolani Park.  Last year, everyone checked in and then we all walked around the park and there were photos set up with stories about CF patients.  It is a great way to show your support! 

To register, go to, search for Hawaii, and click register.

This years walk is about 2 miles around the park and could really use your support!  Can't come out and walk?  You can also donate at  Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations largest fundraiser, and anything you can donate is used to help find  a cure.

Bakeshop Goodies

Black Sesame, Lilikoi, and Coconut Macaroons... YUM!

The cake I made today.  Just a simple 8 inch but I think it turned out really cute.  Plumeria and Hydrangea flowers make it a little more classy.
