bridal shower gift: wine glasses and a wine basket

Soooo, I'm in that age range that falls in the wedding, new baby, new house, new life category...  In comes the bachelorette parties, bridal showers and baby showers.  Seeing that I'm a massive commit-a-phobe, the thought of weddings and babies give me anxiety...  so it's just the perfect place to make me uncomfortable and antsy- happy happy happy [insert sarcasm]...


BUT that doesn't mean that I'm not a good gift-giver and an even better gift presenter!  I happen to love all things paper and given enough time to plan and prepare, love to make things pretty!

I've known about Judy's bachelorette weekend for some time now.  She has a great wedding registry selection and of course my eyes went straight to the Riedel Pinot Nior Wine Glasses.  Ohhh so many fun things I could do with this as a gift!   I recruited two other girls to pitch in for this gift because I wanted to make it super special.  Judy is the most wonderful person; someone I've grown up with, went through elementary, high school and our first year of college together.  Her friendship is priceless.


So I put together a gift basket that will pair perfectly with her wine glasses: a bottle of Pinot Nior, Vinturi Red Wine Aerator, Trader Joe's Organic Chocolate Bars, and a fun and funky wine marker set that looks like chewed up gum!  Placed it in a basket I found at Home Goods and wrapped it in cellophane and tied it with a butcher string that I braided.  I made an easy love bird quilled card (photo above).


The thing about Judy is that she is very green, earthly and eco-friendly.  So I knew that she would appreciate gift wrap that had a green-feel to it; hence the brown color theme.  (which will look out of place in the sea of wedding gift wrap-but whatevs!)


I think she'll appreciate the thought put into her gift and how pretty it looks.  I couldn't be happier for her and can't wait for her to tie the knot!  Congratulations Judy & Sam!

Judy and I (and Sam that I'm holding) at the Happiest Place on Earth, celebrating her big day! LOVE YOU!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street...

Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house...

In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the window…

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.  

Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for a week…
Guess what!?  I am about 2 weeks away from launching the Ultimate Instant Pot Beginner Handout!!  I am so excited to share this with you!!  It has taken me a little longer than I would have wanted, but there is so much love jam-packed into 10 pages with tons of helpful tidbits!! 

There are so many moving parts and pieces that need to be in place before it goes live on Etsy and I am working hard to make it all happen!  I have also decided to offer a printed version and a gift version so you can kick back and relax and I'll have it shipped directly to you and your loved ones!

Honestly this has been such a fun journey so far and I eagerly await to hear your feedback once you get your hands on one!
