Adorable Tunic

Last year for my birthday my mom made me this adorable tunic.  I've never worn it as a dress though until today.  It worked great today for an outdoor wedding!

Gifts in a Jar

Last Spring Joe and I went to Florence, Oregon to spend the weekend at the beach.  While I was shopping there I found this great book called Gifts in a Jar with recipes to make your own gifts.  After I got off of work today I braved the crowd at Fred Myers to buy all of the ingredients I needed to make double chocolate hot cocoa mix.

These two are for my co-workers Jennifer & Serena.

These two I made Oregon State University themed complete with candy cane ornaments.  I gave them to our fellow OSU alumni friends who we spent our weekends with this fall watching football.

Merry Kiss-Miss!

I love vintage Christmas ornaments and I am so lucky that my mom gives me so many!  This year I decorated my tree with them along with a few news ones added here and there.

My favorite Christmas decoration this year is this wreath my mom just made me using vintage ornaments.  I was shocked by how beautuful it is!

Happily Ever After

It's been ages since I have posted on my blog.  That's because I have been so busy planning my wedding!!  My boyfriend asked me to marry him on Sunset Beach on October 1st.  Our dog Sadie was there with us because he told me we were going clamming for the morning.  Once we got to the beach he said that it was not going to be a good day to clam.  We had his truck parked out on the sand and we sat on the tailgate facing the ocean and he got down on one knee in the sand and asked me!

These are some beautiful flowers my friends MaryAnn and Margie gave me along with the cutest lil sign that says "and they lived happily ever after".

Today at 4:45pm is the first Oregon State football game of the season so last night Sadie decided to celebrate by showing her school spirit!

Grandma Gayle got her the jacket & Grandma Jodie got her the scarf.
