How in the world did Friday take so long to get here this week?! I was even off work Monday but the days still seemed to drag. Regardless of why it took Friday forever to show it's face- I'm excited it finally did :) Tonight Jared is planning a low-key date night for us. We've both had crazy weeks and it will be nice to lay low and just enjoy a little bit of downtime together. I'm excited to see what he has in store.

Tomorrow Kayla and I are FINALLY getting together for a girls day/night! Can you tell I'm excited by the enormous, creepy collage pictures? We have been attempting to coordinate our schedules for weeks now and I'm glad it's actually happening this weekend. We're doing mani's, shopping and hopefully some serious crafting! I still have yet to make tile coasters that I've been swearing I would for months. Carolyn over here made THE cutest ones and I need to give them a shot!

Besides that- I'm trying to narrow down what other crafts I should try on my Pinterest boards. There are so many and just not enough time, am I right?!  I want to find a cute way to display a copy of our marriage certificate, perhaps incorporating our monogram. Our bedroom is definitely lacking decor and I think it would look cute in there. Something else I may try to make/order this weekend is similar to this:

First dance photo and lyrics on a canvas. This is a creation by Geezees Custom Canvas Art but I'd love to try to make one myself! I think in sepia, and maybe with a scripted font, it would look pretty in our bedroom too! I'm thinking I'll create it in Adobe Illustrator and have it printed somewhere, but if you need a free service to use I highly recommend PicMonkey.

What has been your best creation via a Pinterest find? Please share! I'm eager to spend some Hobby Lobby and Michael's gift cards this weekend --- nevermind that those gift cards were from my birthday over 2 months ago ;) Help me spend 'em! Happy Friday everyone!!

  2. I love that first dance canvas! For a few of my friends, I've written the lyrics on a mat board for a frame, but I love the canvas too! I made a variation of those coasters for Christmas this year and they were so easy!
    Have fun this weekend!
