A Craft Store Threw Up in My House

It’s official.

Wedding crafts took over the day!

I don’t want to reveal our crafty projects on the blog before the big day, but here’s a little preview:

Intrigued? 😉

For the better part of the day, it looked like a craft store threw up all over our house. Fabric, stamps, paper, scissors and picture frames were everywhere!

My mom is seriously an angel and has done an amazing job with many of the projects. It’s like she has a little peep-hole right into my brain and can help me bring my ideas to fruition. Muchas gracias, Mama! 😀

It seems that crafting makes me very snacky, so I snacked through the day and never really sat down to a big lunch. I really hate it when that happens because I end up eating more than I would if I sat down to a real meal and the foods I consume are never as nutritious… think pre-packaged sugary, white-flour laden goodies… and a bowl or two of ice cream.


Around 6 p.m., my dad suggested we head out for dinner, so we headed to The Clubhouse for sandwiches and soup.

I ordered a marinated veggie sandwich served on Ciabatta bread with feta and Provolone cheese, along with a cup of Navy bean soup.

My dad also let me have a few bites of his fish and chips.

The chips were clearly homemade and were so delicious! They were kettle-cooked, crunchy and perfectly salted.

For dessert, my mom and I shared a big slice of banana chocolate cake, encrusted with macadamia nuts on the outside edge.

The cake was served with caramel and sweet cream condensed milk for dipping.


Now it’s time for b-e-d.

I’m planning on waking up extra early to sneak in a workout before I pay a visit to the dentist.

Off to brush my teeth and floss (maybe)! 😀

Boating to Breakfast

Oh the joys of living on the water.

Just before 9 a.m., my mom, dad, Ryan and I headed out on my parents’ boat. We cruised around for a bit, enjoying the water and the sun, before docking near The Sea Horse, a local hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves the most delicious breakfast.

Fortunately we didn’t have to wait more than a minute, and were directed to a cozy table.

Yep, it is that kind of place. 😉

While perusing the menu, one item jumped out at me.

The Baby Ray sandwich just called to me. I blame the cheese. 😉

We didn’t have to wait more than 10 minutes for our meals and before I knew it, my mouth was watering at the ooey-gooey cheese on the sandwich placed before me.

My mom was also kind enough to share her home fries with me. Yum, yum!

We left The Sea Horse feeling sufficiently stuffed and piled back into the boat to cruise around for another hour before heading in.

On the ride inland, I ended up falling asleep at the front of the boat. The sound of the sea and the warm rays of the sun were relaxing and simply soothing.

Plans for the rest of the day include running to JoAnn’s and Michaels for fabric and frames for the escort boards for our wedding. My mom and I are having so much fun being crafty!

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I’ll be back in a bit!
