What I've been up to...

I've been really bad at blogging lately. There's been so much going on and I just haven't had the time but I haven't forgotten about all of my lovely readers!
Last weekend my fiance and I decided to spend our Bon Ton gift card that I won at a bridal expo. It was so much fun shopping around for things that we want to put on our registry. We bought these wine glasses and a new set of microfiber sheets-which are incredibly soft!
I really need to make a trip up to my attic because my dining room is becoming cluttered with wedding stuff. There's a lot more in my basement that I need to move up to the attic too.
I decided to go with silk flowers for the bouquets. I cleaned out two JoAnn Fabric stores of all of their peonies. I have all of the flowers that I need for the girl's bouquets so I just need the flowers for mine now. I may order them from afloral or fiori belli if JoAnn's doesn't restock soon.
Here are the pink peonies and some other flower that wasn't marked but I think it's so prety whatever it is. I have two maids of honor. The word "maid" really bothers me; I've got to come up with something different. Anyway, their bouquets will consist of these two flowers and the bridesmaids will be made up all white peonies. As for my bouquet, I haven't decided if it will be all pink or a mix of pink and white peonies.

I've also been decorating for Halloween which happens to be one of my favorite holidays. I love to dress up - who doesn't? I picked up these spider tealight holders at Big Lots and my mom got me the pumpkin candle holder.

I made a new wreath for the front door.

And we are still trying to decide on a paint color. This is what my wall currently looks like in our computer/dressing room. Lovely, right?

My finace had a hectic week at work so I baked him some cupcakes to make him smile last night. He was pleasantly surprised when he got home. Remember- food, especially sweets are the key to a man's heart. haha

So, as you can see I've been pretty busy. I'm going to try my best to get on here more often so I don't have a whole mix of posts that turn into one. I have been doing a little fall shopping so that will be the next post. But for right now, my fiance and I are off to start a registry! Tonight is date night and tomorrow afternoon I will spend with one of my best friends at another bridal expo. What can I say, they're fun and I can't wait to catch up with her!
