My fiance is adorable. The proposal was very laid back and real, it was perfect. I'll let the pictures do the talking:
Here it is! The ladies picked it out and they all look lovely

This is my main man, Peanutbutter el hijo de Juan Carlos, Esq. (aka "Peanut"). He's deaf, chubby, asthmatic, and over all, a gentleman.
He's also a scholar:

And on occassion, an angry bee:
Since our wedding it as a ranch, we're going for a rustic/vintage look. I love all things natural and organic, and don't want anything to have a stuffy feel to it. That being said, I hate pinning myself into "colors," but if I have to, I'll say my colors are green, white, and grey. Here are some pictures that have inspired me
So I ran accross this caketopper on the knot, fell in love, and then found it on rainsend's shope on Etsy. Adorable
However, it was a little pricey, so I decided to give making it myself a go. First, I had to figure what the heck the birds were made of. That took some time, but ultimately I decided they were needle felted. So, then I thought, how the heck do you needle felt? But you know who has answers to questions like these. That's right. Martha Stewart.
With that in mind, I commenced to make my own little birdie caketoppers. A few hours (and only a few finger pokes) later, whala! (sorry for the crappy camera work, they're really cute in person)
