Well.. today is the big day! (5/17/10)
I've been working out of town due to a job i accepted about an hour 1/2 away.. and have been staying with my mom. To update y'all, fi and I have been looking at rings for the last 3 weeks.. so I knew it would be coming soon, but didn't quite have an idea of the details.. (I have been calling him fi for the last 2 weeks.. hehe)
Today I drove back to Tampa and walked in the door with all my bags. He asked if I wanted a nice bubble bath :) ..of course, who wouldn't?! So I walked into the bathroom and he had candles lit everywhere. He told me to get in and lay down and he turned out the lights. I noticed something glowing from the ceiling and therefore looked up, and he had "Will you marry me?" written on the ceiling in glow in the dark paint!! I looked over @ him and he was on one knee with my ring in hand ;)
He's a sweetie. Always been good at throwing me off!
He had been tricking me for the last couple of days telling me he couldn't afford the ring i wanted and that he had stopped at a few other places and he had found some better deals.. I was upset cause i fell in love with this one ring...
its now on my finger, yay!!!!
My Gorgeous Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) Bebe! She's the love of my life! (Fi really enjoys her too) ;)
Here's a fun pic of Fi and I... So stinkin' cute!

DIY tissue pomander:

Don't mind my 'concentrating' facial expression. I have to be perfectly still in order for my phone to take a "quality" photo.
- I'd like to add pearls to the ribbon on the bottom. As you can see, still a work in progress!
DIY paper flower bouqet:
This is my DIY paper flower bouqet that I've started. Unfortunately, I thought the blue was more of a green, but when it was wrapped against the lime, it formed this blue-ish color and I will most likely not be using this in my wedding. Still cute though!! .. and very tedious!

DIY bubbles that I added ribbon to:
This photo uploaded with some weird lines haha.. but yes, these are my 100 bubbles and those are 100 assorted (green, white, and brown) ribbons on each. I think it gives the bubbles some personality ;)
Green ribbon as you can see is a sheer color. The white ribbon says "Perfect Pair" in a glittery brown font. and the brown ribbon has little white flowers, too cute!!
I got this idea from Michaels, it was a picture on top of one of the isles for advertising!
Bubbles were purchased in a package of 100 for 14.99 on sale, originally 20$! (ya!)
These Pomanders I added a DIY to:
I bought 8 white rose pomander balls at Michaels 2.50 ea. originally 5$(ya!)
Mom thought of the idea to get a brown hydrangea plant and to cut the flowers off and glue them into the pomander itself... cute?! Then I added a sheer brown ribbon..
We also made 2 green hydrangea added (lol) pomanders with green ribbon.
I'm completely addicted to DIY wedding projects. I got such good sales at Michaels yesterday!! It seemed that almost half of the entire wedding stock was on sale!
I even purchased the white/brown stones for my centerpieces originally 2.50 for 99cents!! woop woop.
I've got lots more to make/post, stay tuned!! <3
***5/17: update ***
DIY hangers (Anna style):
Hangers were purchased in a 5 pack at Old Time Pottery for 5$. They were already pinkish/purple (Not our wedding colors, but they're girly).
I added a pink flower to the tops of them, along with a few rhinestones on the corners, middle and right below the flowers. The plan is to add the MOH, and BM's initials to the left and right of the flower!
