My First Saturday Market...

It's been almost a week since my first Saturday Market and still haven't posted pictures of my table! Well I'm putting them up now! The weather didn't want to cooperate with me that day; it was windy, rainy and cold. And because of that not many people showed up. But hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Well yesterday was!!! I am now officially 22 years old! We celebrated my birthday all weekend long, it was a lot of fun! It all started out eating dinner at Red Robin (I had a coupon for a free burger of my choice and a free sunday for my birthday). What can I say, I was a cheap date that night! Then on Saturday we woke up early and I participated in my first Saturday Market ever!! Even though it was raining, windy and cold it was still quite fun. Then right after we packed up my table we headed over to see Dralion by Cirque du Soleil. If you haven't been to a Cirque du Soleil show, you must at some point in your life. It is awesome! This was our third time going to a Cirque du Soleil event and we love it!! After the show we went to eat dinner at The Cheesecake Factory! It was our first time going there and it was super good! The atmosphere, the food, everything was just so yummy! On Sunday we went to Black Bear restaurant with family and celebrated Father's Day and my birthday. Then after that, some shopping!! I got some super cute shoes! Zebra!!! I can't wait to wear them! I also got a super cute wallet, Mossy Oak!! Love it!!

Father's Day Cards

Sticking with a really simple design, I made my father-in-law and my step-father-in-law father's day cards. I just hope they know how much they mean to me, I consider them as my adoptive dads. They have been there for me (in their own ways) and have put up with my craziness. They always greet me with a smile or a smarty pants remark, and I wouldn't change any of it.

Flowery Pictures

During the weekend we went over to a friend's house for a graduation bbq and I took some pictures (of course!).

Reach for the Sky!

Well that was my inspiration for this card! Since my friends' brother's graduation party is tomorrow I thought this theme would be appropriate. I sewed on a button with some nice silver metallic thread, stuck to a simple design and color scheme, and out came a graduation card!

Weekly Meal Planner

In my attempt to organize myself better, and to cut down on the eating out, I made a weekly meal planner. I found a template I liked on MS Word and edited it to how I wanted it. Since dinner is the only meal that we are both together for I decided to delete breakfast and lunch. And with the empty space on the page I went through each recipe and wrote down all the ingredients on a sticky pad and stuck it next to its corresponding day. That way if I don't have something I can just un-stick the list and head off to the store!

here it is on the fridge!

Baby Aliyana!!! My friend went into labor on Monday night and gave birth through emergency C section on Tuesday morning at 6:21am. As soon as she told me she was in labor I raced over to the hospital (about 2 hours away!) and soon enough we all got to see her baby girl!!
