The decor for the engagement party. I took 4 bouquets from Costco and 4 oranges and made 7 arrangements. Not too bad!
My girlfriend, whom I've known since kindergarten made the cakes. One was lemon with cream cheese frosting, one had a fruit top and filling, one was chocolate with a chocolate chunk filling and one was yellow with raspberry filling and butter cream frosting...YUMMY!!!
Other than wedding planning, we have painted the dining room a dark brown, reupholstered the kitchen chairs, purged the first floor of clutter and unused items, donated a ton to the Salvation Army and I have started moving things to Chicago. I will be moving there with my hubby (finally) in July. The new married couple will be our caretakers until we are able to sell the house in a couple years. (It is still way too low in price to sell now).
I have been lurking around blog world too. I will see if I can keep up with blogging more regularly. Hope you're still out there reading my posts!
