Wedding Countdown App

February 8th, 2013 by     

Hi Garden!  There’s a lot of different kinds of countdown programs and apps out there, but I wanted to share with you one that I used for our wedding and still use to this day!

The fun little countdown app on the iPhone is called Wedding Countdown.  You’re able to use any background picture you want and add your wording of choice; it’s pretty fun.

You are also able to take a picture of the image and share it with family and friends.  I snapped this one when we were down to single digits for our big day.  I still have the countdown going (see below) to keep track of how long we’ve been married.

Check it out. It’s a great tool for remembering dates, and right at your fingertips no less!

Purple, White and Black Bridal Shower

January 10th, 2013 by     

I was just browsing through all of my posts and just realized that I never did share with the garden pictures from my bridal shower back in August … oops!  So, now’s a good as time as ever, right?  Yes, I’m a newlywed and loving my married life, but my bridal shower was one of my favorite moments leading up to the wedding.

My bridesmaids with the help of my mom put on a beautiful shower, and the highlight could have easily been the dessert table!  I loved my little cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes; it was delicious!  One of my bridesmaids ordered the cake, and also little tiny cakes for guests to take home which everyone just loved.  So, here’s a few of my favorite details from the day:

Pre-wedding weekend dichotomy

June 6th, 2011 by     

The Bachelorette Party:

Myself and a few friends are headed North to the closest “big city” for a weekend filled with a photo scavenger hunt, some pottery, possibly a movie (Bridesmaids, of course!), the traditional bar hop and an epic slumber party. This sounds amazing to me!

The Bachelor Party:

My groom and nearly every guy he knows are headed South to the country for a camping trip that includes four wheeling, target shooting, grilling, drinking and sleeping in tents. (As well as I’m told, burping, farting, not showering and all those things you can’t do around women)

DIY: Chalkboard Heart Sticks

April 26th, 2011 by     

Here’s another idea that I had with the heart stick props.  This one, you can do so much more to make it more personalized.  Since the hearts are chalk friendly, you can write anything your hearts desire.  You can use these chalkboard hearts for your photo booth, engagement session, save the dates, or just for fun!  It’s an easy DIY project to do and budget friendly.  =)


DIY: Heart Stick Props

April 22nd, 2011 by     

The other day while I was getting more supplies for my wedding invitations, I came across these really cute red hearts.  I thought, why not just play around with them and make something fun!  So I went back home, thought of an idea…and walaa…I made hearts on stick that can be used for engagement shoots, DIY photo booth, or you can even make a whole bunch for your guests as fun favors!

They’re super easy to make, not time consuming, and most of all…budget friendly:

A Lovely Shower

April 19th, 2011 by     

My Maid of Honor along with my bridesmaids threw me a lovely shower a couple of weeks ago. It was held at the beautiful Sippo Lake Clubhouse. It was a shower-themed shower.

MOH made the centerpieces with her Cricut. I think they were really pretty and sparkly.And the favors were bath salts and loofahs in greens and blues.

Getting a Big Beautiful White Smile

Crest 3D White Whitestrips With Advanced Seal Professional Effects Enamel Safe Dental Whitening Kit, 20-count CartonAre you like me where you’re either afraid of going to the dentist, too lazy to get real teeth whitening, and just don’t want to pay for it if you don’t have to?  About a month ago, I got my yearly teeth cleaning and I asked my hygienist for non-professional teeth whitening options.  She recommended the Crest 3d White Strips.  Guess what I did the very next day?  That’s right, I got the Professional Effects 3d White Strips (Pictured on the left).

Results: Out of a scale from 1-5 (1 being no effects to 5 my teeth are blinding white!), my rate would be a 2.5 out of 5.  It wasn’t as white as I wanted it to be, but it did have SOME effect.   I thought about posting up pictures of my teeth, but I don’t want to gross you out!  =P

Would I Recommend this Product?
Not really.  I spent about $45 on it and the results weren’t what I wanted.  I thought about returning it to the manufacturer and getting my money back, but I just thought it was too much of a hassle.

At work I receive emails from a service that helps reporters and writers get content for their stories. It’s like a help wanted ad for sources.

Yesterday I ran across not one, but two different writers looking for “groomzillas.” We all know about bridezillas, but do the men really get that way too?

Honoring Your Vows – Beautifully!

February 9th, 2011 by     

Olive Dude and I have not yet come to the decision as to whether or not we will be going with traditional vows, completely writing our own, or somewhat mixing the two. Either way, I stumbled across GeeZee, an amazing artist’s Etsy shop, and fell in love with this idea for after we say our “I Do’s”.
