Wedding Card Craft

I never would have guessed how many cards couples get when they get married until I was sitting at my kitchen table with my new husband, ripping open hundreds of envelopes! Obviously, we read all of the cards, took all of the money out of the cards, and decided how to spend it wisely (the most exciting part). But then what?

DIY shower cleaner: A Pinterest Test

So, I had the day off of work today. It was incredible. I haven’t taken a full day off in a long time and I had an extremely stressful week last week, so I could not wait to relax! I did find a few things to do around the house though. One of the things on my to do list was to clean my shower! My mom suggested to me before that I use a Pinterest DIY cleaner and it worked alright in my bathroom before we moved, but I had also used other cleaners along with it. I thought I would try it again in my parent’s house to see how it really worked.

My mom used to paint neat stuff on my nails all the time! Polka dots, flowers, stripes… She even painted panther paws on mine and my teammates nails in high school before volleyball games! So, I decided to try some flowers on my own.  They definitely turn out better when someone else does them, but I was determined to do this myself.

Here are my steps! Continue reading

Who doesn’t love a good wedding post?

Like most girls, I dreamed of my wedding day my whole life. And, like most girls, I found that weddings are a lot more stressful than I had imagined. Other people have opinions, everything is ridiculously expensive, and things don’t always turn out the way you plan. First of all, try not to please everyone. It’s your day! Work things out with your fiancé and whoever is paying for the wedding and let other people’s opinions go. Continue reading
