Outfit Fail

We're getting lots of projects done today!

Have a very happy 80's/crossing guard/hunting/construction worker day. You know we are having a good one ;)

 (Disclaimer: Got dressed in the dark with no full-size mirrors to check out the final outfit. Haters back off)

Happy Labor Day weekend! I'm off to Chicago to get the chairs we want for our office lobby at Ikea and hang out with Adam and family ;)

Here is a sneak peek at what will be used at my wedding as decoration. I found the idea on Pinterest (shocker, right?).  My friends, Abby and Jenelle, helped me make a whole lot of these this past weekend. We wiped out the local stores of styrofoam ;)
For a more detailed tutorial, go here. The original creator of these used red ticking as the fabric and it looked awesome. Just a word of advice, be careful with the hot glue gun. Burning your figure anytime but especially multiple times in the same spot is not fun.

Kelly's wedding

Jennifer, Kelly, and I

On Saturday, my fellow graphic designer tied the knot. She is a really good designer so all her signs and printed material were really cute and well done. It was cool to finally see everything that she had talked about this summer.

The ceremony was so Kelly. It was funny because  she was such a whoot. She is one person not afraid of attention haha

The ceremony and reception were at a huge mansion. It was fun. I wish I had known more people my age because it would have been a night filled with dancing but it was fun nonetheless.

The huge mansion

Complete with pool, huge deck, outdoor fireplace, and pillar canopy thing.

oh and a putting green.

First Dance.

Their cute cake and the bike topper (it's a little hard to see)

And now the countdown to my wedding starts but I don't know the number of days so don't tell me ;)

oh and p.s. Happy Birthday to Leighann! I wish I could share a piece of cake or whatever paleo form of dessert you are indulging in today ;)

Sorry, life got busy again and it's not easy to blog when you don't have access to internet.

Two weekends ago, Katie and Jack came to visit. It was a load of fun. We packed way too much into one weekend but it was very much worth it

this little buddy kept creeping from the back to the front. He thought we didn't notice.

She came on Thursday night and didn't leave till Tuesday.

We got our nails done, went shopping, made a day trip to Chicago to visit Adam and the big city, watched movies, and made yummy food (well she made the food but I ate it ;)

Where all the dogs have to go potty in Adam's city apartment. Run implied to Katie and I that it would be a garden rooftop or a path somewhere.

this was it. More like Dog Square or Back Alley or really smelly space.

the bean!

 Katie, Me, Adam, and his friend, Brian

It was so good to see her and hang out for multiple days in a row.

Today is my birthday. I wish it was on a day I could see Adam but I am happy that my friend Jenelle is coming up to see me tonight. She took me out to get a milkshake last year and so she is doing it again this year haha She is such a good friend and I haven't seen her since March so I am super pumped. Also I'm hanging out with Abby tonight and not working out and maybe eating chocolate cake because I love ;)

Happy Wednesday!
