{Mommy Day}

Monday, February 28, 2011
Today ... I will not be bothered ... because I will be here ...

My phone will be turned off, no one will be yelling for "mommy." And all will be right with the world.

Following the spa trip ... I will be having dinner with my mom! I can't wait!

I'll let this picture speak for itself ...

it was soooo much fun :)


{Chamber Gala}

Wednesday, February 16, 2011
A couple of weeks ago was the annual Chamber Gala. Ryan and I usually go with his company, which I love. It's so much fun getting dressed up and having a night out with out the kids. This year was even better. We opted to get a room at the hotel it was held out, so we didn't have to drive anywhere.

My friend Ashley took picture from the night, and I am so glad she did, my camera didn't fit in my cute feather purse!

Can't wait for next year!


{Rose Cake}

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
So, I had about a MILLION texts/emails/comments about this delicate, yummy rose cake, that I just had to share it with you on the blog. Here is the deal ... I found the cake here, at "I Am Baker." and I was one of those people who ran out the next day and made the cake.

Now, my husband says that this was the most amazingly beautiful cake he had seen and thought it tasted really good too ... soo, here are pictures of my cake, and I hope you all have good luck making it yourselves. It's SOOOO easy!


{Valentine's Day Cards}

Friday, February 11, 2011
Happy Friday!

I finally started getting into the Valentine's Day spirit, and make a few cards for our close family & friends. I LOVE the way they turned out. Valentine's Day cards are hard when you have boys ... you want them to have a masculine feel, with out all the hearts and pink :)

I used a quote form the boys favorite book "Guess How Much I Love You." It was perfect for VDay! And, since all we have out side is snow ... I thought it would be appropriate to share one of their outings. This was Braeden giving Bayler his hand to help him out of the 18" we got :) Soo cute!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


{Love Print}

Thursday, February 10, 2011
Had a few emails about the dark grey love print in the pictures yesterday, so I wanted to give credit where credit is due ...

You can find the LOVE print here ... and it comes in a number of different colors!

Here are some close ups ...


{Finally Filled the Picture Frames}

Wednesday, February 9, 2011
After Ryan and I found out we were having a baby {Braeden} I moved into his house. I started redecorating, making the house my own. It's actually come a LONG way since then. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished. BUT, our family room has changed over and over again. I have never been content with the room, and something about it, maybe the shape, gets me riled up.

Last Summer, after I finished my my bedroom, I bought four extra white frames. I never used them, but they fit absolutely perfect in my living room. FINALLY I was at ease. Except for the fact I had nothing to put in them :) So, I left them empty ... on my walls ... for months :) It was actually 4 months to be exact! And my poor husband, every time we invited people over, or we were entertaining some clients he would ask me so nicely if I would please put some pictures in there. I refused politely.

This Sunday we had a few people over for the Superbowl, and as I was cleaning the house, I finally new what to put in the frames. Since the hubs is in the copier biz, I don't have to go somewhere to get pictures printed ... here is how it turned out. I am really happy ... except for the fact I hung them off kilter. Oh well ... that's another post!

It's Finally Here!

It's the perfect fit for The Bridal Solution ... clean, modern & a little bit preppy ... and we couldn't be more giddy! We have waited SO long to show you, and although we were a tab bit nervous to unveil it ... it was the perfect time! We really wanted a logo that focused on what we were really about ... bringing fresh design inspiration to the modern day bride and assisting brides through the planning process. It feels so great to finally share it with you!

Thank you to Kristen, from Hoot Design Co. who created our brand new look for 2011. This is shaping up to be a great year for The Bridal Solution, and can't wait to share all of it with you.

{Happy Mailman Day}

Friday, February 4, 2011
Did you know it was "Thank your Mailman/woman Day?" We did! This morning the boys decorated their own cards for our mailman. We really have the best one too ... he is SO nice, always waves at the kids & came in the blizzard this week! A BIG thank you to all the men and women who bring us all our mail!!


{Painted Sheets}

Thursday, February 3, 2011
I have always been drawn to stripes ... I love them. I love everything about them! So when I saw these painted sheet curtains & this striped shower curtain ... I knew I would have to put this in my inspirational pile. Can't wait to get a new home and try these techniques!

find the dining room curtains here.


{Snowed In}

Tuesday, February 1, 2011
It's official ... we are snowed in for at least a couple of days. The State of Missouri has declared a State of Emergency. We had our first ever "Blizzard Warning," and snow fall is estimated at 18 inches, with the snow falling at 1 to 2 inches per hour. YIKES!

But it's not all bad. I stocked up on groceries tonight, bought a couple extra heated blankets, and picked up all the necessities. The only thing that bothers me is our power. I have a feeling we will most likely loose our sometime tomorrow night, and I am not really sure what we will do then. It should be interesting!

In other news ... TBS was to debut our new look/send press releases/and have a VIP party which have all been cancelled due to the weather. They have been rescheduled for February 7 ... wish us luck!

Ryan, was also in the paper on Sunday for a campaign ... here are a few pictures, can you tell I was proud :)
