Smelling the Roses.

Some beautiful roses that JJ bought for me!




Time Flys When the Weather is Warm.

So one week from today I will be back in my home state. It will be two months before our wedding. I can't believe that this time has gone by so fast. According to my Facebook count down we are 72 days away from getting hitched! I'm so excited; both of us are. I just can't believe it is coming up so fast!

I'm supper excited to see all of my friends and family! I can't wait to see you guys. I'm looking forward to finishing my wedding planning with my mom. We are down to the details, which I think is the best part.

That said, I am not excited about the weather. I have never liked the cold weather, I wasn't even a fan of the winter in Charleston. Now I have officially become a cold weather whimp! I mean it can be 70 degrees and I'm hunting for the clothes sweatshirt or throw blanket.

So while my days here are spend with windows and doors wide open I fear my return to the east coast. I really hope I don't get caught up in flight delays and such!

In preparation for my travels back I thought I would do some research, and by research I mean check the weather reports. I think it was a mistake!

Goodnight Moon.

Summary of Last week.

Ok I've been slacking on my blogging. I'm sorry. I've been working a lot on getting eliz design up and running. You can check out what I have so far on my site, Here are some snap shots of whats been going on with me lately!

 This is some famous person. I think he is a mixed martial arts guys. I was basically at Starbucks and all these Japanese girls were going crazy over him! So I took a picture. Let me know if you know who he is!


This is Ruby, she is a sweetie! She is going to be Morris' best friend when he gets here. I'm hoping she will teach him about fetch!
I did get to spend some time at the beach! I bet you couldn't tell this was a really rainy day for most of it! The sun only came out for about 20 minutes.

 Sideboard with all my cookbooks and other things. 

 Our bar, complete with beer and wine fridge. As you can see I need to get some more wine!

Tea for Two, Plus Mom.

This Saturday I went to a baby shower and not only was it extra special since it was a tea, but the mom-to-be is having twins! I'm so excited for her. I love the idea of twins, I just think they would be a ton of fun. Jamie is having a sweet little boy and girl which should make their grand entrance in about a month.

Finger Sandwiches!
So fabulous ladies planned at great shower at A Cup of Tea in Kailua. I've been wanting to try this place for about two months now and it was so good to go with friends.

The Rocky Road Brownies.
I had a long island strawberry tea which was divine. There were scones (yum) and finger snadwiches and oh-my-goodness rocky road brownies!

The main event, the tea. (Playing around with saturation.)
After munching on the finger foods and catching up with the ladies at my table Jamie opened her loot! There were so many cute outfits. I think those babies won't be wearing very many repeats. Which is prefect so they can match their fashionable momma!

 USS Charlotte Wives and me.
Congratulations Jamie! I can't wait to meet your twins! Double the sweetness!

Crafty Valentines.

I've always thought that the best Valentine Day gifts were the homemade kind. It shows that someone has put though in to the present rather then just go by the CVS for a box of chocolates. I guess it makes it a little less of a "Hallmark" holiday.

This Wednesday I dug out old art supplies, scrap paper, some old photos and anything else I could think of that would contribute to a sweet Valentine. After a few hours of crafting and watching Sex and the City I finished my Valentine. It was really fun to set aside the time to be crafty and do something creative. And it was even better because I had a good friend join me!

 Lots of piles of random things, such a mess.
So much pink!

Gea's Fabulous Valentine!
Valentine for my sweetie! Love you JJ!

Well to be honest I don't think my final project is the most fabulous valentine I ever saw, but I had fun doing it! I hope you get a chance to make something for your sweetie this Valentine's Day.
