Sooooo Busy...Sooooo Worth It!!!

What's a girl to do when one of her dearest and oldest friends is getting married to a guy who also happens to be a dear old friend, and those dear old friends have no budget, no resources and no time (because she is working full time and a single mom, and he is working full time and a single dad)....

Well I'll tell you what she does...she offers her services and great taste and plans the best wedding she can for her dear old friends!

So this is why I have been off my A game when it comes to blogging.


I have been making invitations and editing pictures...




I have been shopping for stuff to make these centerpieces...



I have been sewing ties that look like this...




I have been getting manicures and pedicures...




I have been fixing little girls hair....



I have been making wedding play lists, buying guest books, finding punch recipes, finding table clothes, looking for dresses and picture frames. Oh and getting lost trying to find the bakery and safely bringing the cake to the reception. Not too mention taking hundreds of pictures!


All of this crazy, for this incredible moment.



Besides being there for Becca and Sam, the best part of the whole thing was being able to finally reconnect with my other dear old friend, Kylene.






The time just flew by, and at 3:00pm we were back on the road to make the 3+ hour drive back so that we would be here in time for Eden's much awaited dance recital.


I'm not sure how I get myself wrapped up in these major, time sucking adventures, but I can't complain. My life is certainly full and my husband is ridiculously patient. Thankfully things have calmed down. Only Edee's pre-school graduation and Maya's end of the year party to go....Oh and the Liberty Lake garage sale! Okay so one more week of crazy.

Ah, but you look so cute doing it and that is half the battle.

Seriously, you look adorable.

Your friend looks super happy and the ties look super sharp.

Apparentely I really like the word "super." I have been reading a lot of young adult/pre-teen books lately.

Love those photographs- the engagement picture is divine.

Apparently. Apparently, I am not super speller.

Did I just spell it wrong again?

Ilene, you got it right the 2nd time :)

Wow, Jessica. What a wonderful friend you are. You were able to make this day all the more special for her.

Okay, I feel stupid now since I just commented in your newer post, "When do I get to hear about the wedding?" All I had to do was scroll down. Anyway- I'm so glad it went well! You really are sooooo gifted when it comes to decorating, party-planning, leading anything! You are a natural-born leader. You look so beautiful in the pics too.
