Happily ever after

Oh  my goodness I don't know how full time working moms do it?   My house looks like a bomb went off I haven't slept in a week (just look at the black circles under my eyes)  and I have gained 3 pounds, cause I'm eating on the run.....  But just look what we did!!!

 I was organizing my friends basement when the call came in, "can you help with the wedding dinner on Wed?"  Ash and I decide to do it together thank goodness we could have never done it alone, ( we also had Kristi decoupaging pumpkins one day). 

I spent my whole weekend away from kids and phones to make the paper wreaths they took about 3 hours for the first 3 or 4 but by the last ones 12-14 I had it down to an hour and a half. It took about 30 hours to do them but look how dang cute they are!!! and I'm going to use them for brys work party (which means I need to make 4 more yikes).

 I  loved being up in park city with my mom and dad this was the view when I woke up and then later that day look at the wreaths piling up. he he he

 It was so fun to work with a master mind of darling deco. Ashley, she is so full of fun darling ideas and I think we had such a good collaboration! 

I loved her candles and my banner was so darling on the wall I draped with burlap.(I wish I could have steamed the creases out)   It was a fun party to plan!  I have to do a shout out to Kristi for getting the food organized and made it was so yummy!  It's so heart warming to see a neighborhood come together to help a good friend in need.  We love you Nelson's!

I've got an idea of what happens to a house when mom's go to work. I've been in that boat for 3 weeks, and I can hardly stand to look at my house. Unfortunately, now that I am sick, I just have to sit here and stare at the mess because I don't have the energy to clean it up. I have a friend who plans weddings and makes cakes (she lives in Utah)...maybe you two should go into business together. You're so creative!
