guest book

so it seems i keep buying things for the wedding with a certain plan that does not pan out.
after a little thought i think the cranes look kinda stupid on these trees.......

****i have quite a few uses for them, so thats not the issue.****
i also have this tree and these leaves. which i also think will look kinda stupid with my tables settings, the more i think about it

then today!!!!!! while josh was at band practice and i paced around a already clean apartment i got the idea and demo-ed it!

having guests write there love notes or guest book whatevers on the leaves (which will be pre stringed) and then hanging them on the tree , which will be on the welcome table
TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was not a waste!

photo booth

here is my only photo booth inspiration pic taken from 100 layer cake

my plan.....................
using the pipe and drape rental... i will hang string cranes over the fabric, with weights on the other side.
rentals are so gay you cant put holes in anything!!!!!!!!!

next to my prop table i will have my instant camera and a little album for people to put their photos! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


so after re reading my contract with the museum i came to discover the no bark rule.....
my dream cake stand is made out of a tree trunk......

this is a small problem in the scheme of things i know.

some how the stress of everything is weighing on me

no one ever tells you that your stamps will add up to a unexpected amount of money. i mean some on its stamps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i know in the end i wont give a shit what my cake is served on because my mom made it and i picked the right guy and i have the most amazing friends so till then i will take a pill and go to sleep............

loving these new suits by Hotel Bondi! One of the top or bottom ones will have to be purchased if i do ever decide to honeymoon. It is a investment but my swimsuit is embarrassing and ill fitting. Seems silly to be checking out swim wear while sick in bed, but thats how it goes
I would never wear strapless to the beach but this little girl is pretty cute!

might collect some of these and scatter them around my detroit reception. cute!!!!!

wedding horoscope (cheesey i know)

Cancer Weddings (June 21 - July 22)The spirit of the beginning of summer comes from the enjoyment of earth's bounty, so Cancer weddings are always about the food, desserts and the love of the couple, their families and friends. As two become one, the spirit of this domestically-oriented sign will emphasize the meaning of joining hands and hearts to create a new entity. Cancer couples often find themselves concerned more about their home, the children they may have and the way they interact with relatives than many of their peers. The trick to preserving passion is to demand time that's dedicated to just the two of them.

Spring Denim report

So after checking my credit card balances from the trip/ wedding planning. i dont really see myself buying anything anytime soon. i am no longer going to mention the things i want this season, and to bring to your attention the things i do not. white jeans? i already own a pair and i have worn them twice. i have been plagued with irregular periods and if it is gonna happen to someone , its gonna be me.
i dont even feel like i have to explain myself here. these patchwork eyesores can rot in hell!
hmmmmm. does anyone know where i can find a pair of pants that makes my hips and thighs look bigger, and my legs shorter? let me know. thanks

carb bomb

I made this pasta the other day. Got the recipe from people magazine of all places! i also added a little mozzarella to it at the end. Despite the fact that I used 40 small tomatoes ! Josh said it was not saucey enough. Whaaaaa!
On a funny note, while I was mashing the tomatoes I accidently dropped my phone in the frying pan! It still works and smells amazing!

Spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce and basil
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
20 ripe plum tomatoes, peeled, halved and seeded
Pinch of crushed red pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 TBSP unsalted butter
1 oz. freshly grated parmiagiano-reggiano (about 1/2 cup)
6-8 fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly
1 lb spaghetti
In a wide pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes and red pepper flakes and season lightly with salt aned pepper. Let cook for a few minutes until tomatoes start to soften. Using a potato masher, smash the tomatoes finely. Cook 20-25 minutes until sauce is thickened.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the spaghetti until just shy of al dente. Drain pasta, reserving a little of the cooking water. Add pasta to sauce and cook over medium-high heat, gently tossing the pasta and the sauce together with a couple of wooden spoons until pasta is just tender. If the sauce seems a little thick, add some of the reserved pasta water. Take pan off heat and toss in butter, basil and cheese. Serve immediately. Serves 4

SNURK bedding

found this off my new favorite blog!

Snurk bedding! (means snore)
they are great because, well there bedding is very tongue and cheek, original and a large part of the proceeds of their designs Le-Clochard and Le-Trottoir go to The Foundation for Homeless Youngsters in the Netherlands (SZN). With the money housing projects are supported, where guidance to finding a job or finishing school is the main focus.
uhhhh AWESOME! We need more companies like that here dudes!

yum blondies!

think i will make these this weekend to break in my mixer. minus the butterscotch chips because butterscotch is disgusting
Chocolate Pecan Butterscotch Blondie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup toasted chopped pecans
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat and stir in the brown sugar so that it's well mixed into a goopy syrup. Remove from heat.

2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.

3. Once the butter/sugar mixture cools a bit, add in the eggs and vanilla and stir until combined. Pour mixture into the flour and stir until just mixed. Add in the pecans, butterscotch chips and chocolate chips, stirring well so that everything gets mixed together.

4. Pour the batter into a buttered 9x9 inch baking dish, smoothing out the top with a spatula. Bake for 35 minutes or so until the center comes out relatively clean, the top is golden and the sides start to pull away from the dish. Cool and cut into squares.
