Happy (thoughts) Friday

Hello all, Sorry I haven't posted a happy (thoughts) Friday in like I dunno FOREVER. (I think its only been a couple weeks)

So these last few weeks have been busy busy busy and last week was poopy poopy poopy, but I have still managed to remember what has made me happy in the worst parts of my day.

1.) I FINALLY got my ring back from the jewelers. They had it for TWO weeks! seems like forever since I had only had it for one before handing it over to get sized. It fits now and I don't have to worry about losing it.

2.) My skeleton earrings for Halloween

3.) 3rd Annual Halloween office pot luck.

4.) Making my costume this year...I haven't started yet; its going to be amazing.

5.)Knowing that I am going to marry my best friend and that life is going to be fun always. That thought keeps me going on bad days.

and last but not least


yup! you guys make me smile everyday

what makes you happy?

pretty lace gloves

"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin." .... Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939

I am considering wearing gloves on my wedding day...these fingerless ones have caught my eye. So pretty and delicate.

Would you wear gloves?

Bob Barker was a smart man

Monday morning I dropped Suzy off at the Vet to get spayed. The correct term as it was in the info packet they gave me is:
the surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries
(I should have gotten this done a year ago when she came to live with me, I already feel guilty about not having it done. Its a big deal to me.)
She was there all day and I left work early to go pick her up. I felt so bad that I abandoned her in a strange place all day and she was going to be in pain and groggy when she next saw me. So when I got to the place they finally bring her out and she wags her little tail as much as she could since she didn't feel good at all. I was glad she was happy to see me as much as I was to see her. I had to stop and get her a cone thing so she doesn't lick her wounds and while I was there they had costumes 75% off so of course I had to get the adorable lobster costume! (Go check it out at { bugmiscellany })
I can't help but think about how cute she is in the cone and all sleepy.....

I got her a new toy too, its a mummy dog.

Today she is feeling better and would go running if we let her. She still has to wear the cone and can only go for short potty walks. 10-14 days is gonna be forever for her, but she is going to be SO happy when I can finally take her to the dog park and not have to worry about baby Suzie's.

For low cost spay and neuter

Blog Hop Wednesday! Hoted by take it from me.

Zebra Wedding Cake

Check out this fun cake my sister and I made this weekend for my Friends wedding.

We were so excited to make her wedding cake and that she wanted Zebra stripes! The original picture she showed me for an example was a little cheesy for our style so we took it and made it ours.

Still super busy at work so not much time for blogging, boohoo.

Happy Monday! Last week kicked my butt I am determined to have a good week this week! plus Halloween is coming! I gotta get costumes together!

Imagine being 5 again and not having a care in the world except what color to pick, but you can't pick so you chose them all.
My niece is the most creative child I know, she has long red hair and thinks everyone should have red hair (just like a red head). She drew me a tattoo last night...I'm in love with it.

it's a floating slug...yeah she rocks.
(I am also in love with the fact that my arm looks really good in this picture. I'm gonna have to keep on working them babies out.)

This made my week all better, it's been one of those weeks.

i see plaid people

OK so you wanted to see the plaid wedding's amazing and I forgot where I found it (I think it is Jcrew but they didn't have it for sale anymore)


I would really like to get this in a lighter color like Ivory with White plaid

So what are your thoughts?

you fancy huh

I just love this look with the plaid...made this on Polyvore.

Is its totally crazy to add plaid with fancy? I have been steering toward this for a little bit and I am even thinking plaid wedding dress....ooh more to come on that.

Happy Wednesday!

a little bird told me we would be married

I love the idea of adding a bird to the wedding. My Papa loved bird watching and I would love to have a little part of him included in our wedding.

What is something special you added to your wedding or would add?

Man Hands got down on one knee and asked me to marry him saturday morning at the river. It was beautiful and perfect! I said YES (well I shook my head yes till the words would come out)

Happy (Friday) Thoughts


Thank you all so much for your advice on my little fight the other day. I met up with his Sister-in-Law for some wine tasting and talking after work came home and we were fine.

Tonight we are going to Leavenworth, WA  for Oktoberfest! We had so much fun last year and I can't wait to get there!!

Here are some things that have made me happy this week.


2.) More Wine

3.) Girlfriends, New and Old that are there when I need to vent.

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.~Judy Garland

Have a fantastic weekend!

breakfast of sadness

This bacon popcorn looks really yummy; I am just having the regular kind with apples, OJ and some coffee. Its making me feel a bit better. Man hands and I are fighting, silly stuff really but it doesn't make for a happy morning. I don't want to back down and I am sure he wont either (we are both really stubborn) but I want to make it better.

How do you fight and make up?

Baby its cold outside

Brr; the mornings are getting colder and colder these days. I need to remember to put a coat, scarf and mittens on before I leave the house. It's crazy but I can't get it all together most mornings and end up walking outside with one of the three.

I just love wearing mittens, it makes the day seem so much more fun. Life is serious enough as it is why do my accessories have to be?

How cute are these kate spade mittens?

I am pretty sure these Juicy Couture ones need to me part of my fall wardrobe

but these from target are more in my price range. Looks like I found how I am spending my lunch hour.

Some hot coco, a fire and some crafting tonight sounds like the perfect way to spend my evening.
  How about you?

Stay warm my lovely friends!

Manic Monday

I have been so Busy lately; there has been no time to post. Please forgive me.

Quick update of this weekend (remember the wedding I was so nervous about going to) Well Sister and I made the cake and it turned out amazing! everyone loved it and even came back for seconds!! I was more working the whole time than being a guest but that's OK. If we want to start our own business then that's what I have to do, right? Also the ex, saw him and I don't know why I was so gross! I am so much happier with my life I ooze happiness. lol

Hope you had a great weekend! gotta get back to work.
