My Bohemian Wedding: The Ring

People have been asking to see the ring, but it has been at the jewelers being resized since LAST Monday. Apparently, taking a ring from a size seven to a size four requires some special time and attention. I finally got it back yesterday. It was like seeing a long lost love. Not a moment too soon (if not lots of moments too late), because I'm going home for my Dad's birthday today, and need to show it off! Here it is....

Our First Ornament

A few weeks ago, I saw a fantastic post about making ornaments from the slice of trunk that they cut from the bottom of your Christmas tree. I can't find the post now, but how impressed I was. What a clever and creative way to make memorable ornament keepsakes! I couldn't wait to make my own! And what perfect timing. Keith and I just got engaged, this is our first year to have a place together, and we just got our first tree. I decided to incorporate the engagement into the design by painting my ring. I wrapped it and surprised him with it the night we decorated the tree. I absolutely love it, and can't wait to continue this tradition year after year.

All I Want For Christmas Is... Tech Gear

A girl can't live off of fashion alone, so I decided to add a few more fun items to my wishlist this year. I just moved into the mobile browsing age and got my first iPhone. Up till now, I've been a pretty basic girl when it comes to my phone, texting and calling only. However, I decided to give my phone a swirly the other night, which it did not seem to take too kindly to. Luckily I was available for an upgrade, and finally got an iPhone. Not the fanciest thing, it's a 3G S, but it's more than enough for me. There are so many fun gadgets and accessories to go along with this phone, I'm getting the feeling that I'm going to love it more and more. Here are some fun items that I've found...

I hope I've been good enough to get some of these goodies this year!

We're Engaged!!!

 Sorry for the brief absence, but my weekend was crazy, because I got engaged! I must say, I was completely surprised. I knew he had been looking for a ring, but I though it was still a ways away. What a wonderful way to start my holiday season! The only downfall, I've hardly been able to sleep, due to an overactive brain. Yawn! Unfortunately, I took the ring it to get it sized yesterday without taking a picture. Soon to follow. Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Holiday Apothecary Jars

I came across a set of three apothecary jars at Ross the other day and just couldn't pass them up! I have been seeing them everywhere, and have been dying to buy some of my own. From holding sweet treats and garnishes, to ornaments and knick knacks, they make the perfect addition to any room. I love that with a simple change of contents, they can flow from one holiday/season to the next. Here are some fabulous ideas for this holiday season....
