Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.
Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple
I'm only a little over a month late... here are a few pictures from Kevin & Lindsey's Engagement party. Matt and I are both honored to be in their wedding, as best man and matron of honor... how cool is that?
The bride and her attendents, minus Catherine
There's a guy missing... I think Kevin's cousin Jason?
To anyone who knows Kev... can you hear (just imagine) the sound he's making right now, cuz I can... it's signature Kevin! hahaha
Praciticing cutting the cake and smiling for a million cameras! Aren't they just the cutest?
Four our first anniversary / needing to relax 3 months after our anniversary, Matthew and I went camping at Heart Bar. I was excited because I got to sit on my lazy behind and read a lot of books. Matt enjoyed feeding chipmunks and running around in the field and cooking over the campfire. We had wine coolers on our first night (and the next afternoon) as a way to toast one year of marital bliss! Brad came by to say hello on Saturday morning (he found us as he was riding around on his motorcycle) and we invited the Fortunas over for smores on Saturday evening. They took a picture of us by our awesome tent with doggie doors. We just need a dog now!
Before our Bay Area prebuild, Matt and I got to play tourist with Kev and Linds. We had been talking about going to San Francisco for a few years, so it was exciting to see this finally come to fruition. My mom was an amazing tourguide and took us all over the City. I saw a few things I had not seen before (like the Victorian houses aka FULL HOUSE house! woo!). This picture is from that place:
Next stop, Baker Beach. This is the scene of the Beach Party in the Princess Diaries and also of Matt and I's engagement photos. Here's a picture of me and my lovely Mutti. This sign said 0.7 mi to Land's End. 1.4 mi to the Golden Gate Bridge. and 775 mi. to Mexico. That's where I was headed. Although it looks like I'm pointing up. Oh well. View of Coit tower from Lombard Street: My love and I at Lombard Street. View of the City from Coit Tower... A drive-by picture of City Hall.
And that is about it for our quick little tour of San Francisco. I have some pictures of us all eating lunch and of Lindsey sleeping. But I thought I would be nice and spare everyone from seeing that! Thanks for visiting today!
Well I'm officially t'ed off with blogger. I can' edit a dang picture once it is uploaded. Grrrr. And that is why this first picture is sideways. It's correct in my file, but 3 times trying to upload and no dice. It is a picture of an apron that I made with this tutorial, and a matching pot holder and dish rags. Part of a wedding favor for Staci.
This is a gift basket that I made as a prize for bingo. The large pink heart is a bath fizzy. the green soaps were made with shavings of some bar soap. And then the white soaps were made with this awesome tutorial from Anne Marie.
A close up of some of the soaps and the stamps that I used. I also made some as favors for stacis shower, and totally forgot to get pictures. But I learned thatI need to use a non-bleeding colorant or the white will slowly fade to the back color!
Oh and an Easter soap with a bunny and eggs inset. Don't you want to buy some?
Fixed a giant rip up the pocket of T-Pains (a girl named Taylor)'s pants. I loved how it turned out so much that I am making my own!
And there you have it, just tast of what I've been crafting lately!
