Happy New Year!

So here we are and yet another year has passed. Just after getting engaged in April, I would have said I never thought this year would end soon enough. However it has FLOWN by! 2009 was a year full of some incredible things along with some very hard trials. I'm excited to welcome 2010! Things can only get better as far as I'm concerned because come May 1st I will marry the man of my dreams!

I wish you all a very Happy New Year! May the coming year bring all you hope for!

And now, I'll leave you with my fully decorated cupcake tree! Today it was finally warm enough for me to spray paint the cardboard pieces. I used Krylon's satin finish paint and it's amazing, the color was Nickel. Once they dried, I used my hot glue gun to attach the purple ribbon I used to trim all the edges.

What do you think?

With less than 150 days to go, I'll try and get better about updating you on completed projects. What I can't get done before the wedding, I will try and blog about after the wedding so stay tuned!

So here I am yet again apologizing for not posting in what seems forever. I'm so sorry I can't seem to keep up with my blog as of late. I'm still without a job and without easy access to hi-speed internet.

To say things are stressful and tight financially without a job doesn't even begin to cut it. And despite all that, the wedding is drawing ever closer. When I started planning, I never in a million years would have guessed I'd be unemployed. It's a huge challenge and is adding a lot of unneeded stress.

Time just seems to be getting away from me lately. I don't know where it's going! lol Christmas is under two weeks away and that is scaring the crap out of me! lol We have less than five months to go until the wedding and I know the big day is going to creep up on us FAST!

I haven't really worked on anything wedding related lately. My family has two birthdays in October and two in November (mine included) and then Thanksgiving and now Christmas and I just got back from a wonderful vacation with my sweetie! Things have been super busy for me.

However, I have gotten a few things done. My groom to be and his best man did get their measurements taken care of. My mom got her MOB dress ordered, I let my girls know what dresses they can pick, and I've shared the info about the flower girl dresses to one of the girls parents.

In any case, I'm sorry again for the lack of posting and will try and do better. For those of you who are sticking around...THANKS!
