love - sweet - love

i made a banner this weekend to go on the dessert/snack/candy table for our family dinner after the ceremony!
i love the way it turned out!

LOVE
SWEET
LOVE







i couldn't get a good shot of the whole banner...


the banner took me quite a few hours to make but i had everything to make it and i was in a crafty mood over this weekend :)
there are 2 blank pieces of paper that i need to decorate. just not sure what i want to put on them yet.

we spent most of the weekend with my family and just relaxing around the house.
i saw top gun for the first time from start to finish ;) 
my mom and i went and priced out flowers and picked out what we will need to make my bouquet.
she is going to make it for me! and the boutonnieres and the flowers parents will wear.
it was a wonderful, perfect weekend!  

i'm getting back into full blown workout mode starting today.
i have been working out 3-4 days a week and just eating whatever i want whenever i want.
i want to be working out at least 5-6 days and actually caring about what i eat.
wish me luck ;)

hope everyone had a good weekend!!

OOH the banner is so cute!! I actually like the blank pieces of cardstock between the words, I might be in the minority, but seeing blank spaces helps me to read it, despite how slow that makes me seem, it's true! I really love the colors and the bits of glitter!!

Good luck with the working out - seems like you've got it together!!

good luck with the exercise & dieting! I think about re-starting my diet every Monday but it always fails! I think Monday is a crap day to start a diet! Maybe I'll shoot for Tuesdays! lol Love the banners, you're so creative! I wish I had just the slightest bit of creativity in me!

The banner looks so good!
I need to start working out period. Because I don't and I still eat what I want. Mind you I walk a lot during the day, but that isn't enough. I'm making my boyfriend do the 30 day shred with me over skype starting next week! haha

I'm sorry, I couldn't get past the part where you said dessert/candy table. Can I come to your wedding??? I'll be super quiet and I'll stay out of the way... back by the dessert/candy table.

Whitney said...

I love the banner.

I tried to make one, but it didn't turn out as great as that the one you made.

I'm going to try to get back in to workout mode too. The entire time David was back (for a week), I didn't work out. We didn't have time, since I didn't even spend a night at my place (except for like one or two nights).

Good luck!
