So... these two are married now. We went to Sacramento last week for the jubilant event and I managed to not take a single photo of the entire week. Which is sad, because you are going to want to see a picture of Vanessa's dress. There is one that managed to get snapped here
We had a really fun time though and hopefully David's family wasn't too sick of us by the time we were done messing up their house, eating their food, and waking up at an obscenely early hour and not doing a great job of keeping Avery quiet. Also, the wedding was fun, but what was really fun was the week before the wedding when we got to hang out with Vanessa and her new inlaws Jenny and Grace and do wedding stuff. Flowers...decorations...sewing a veil (OK I may have done that at 5 am on the actual day of the wedding, which made it slightly less fun)...shopping for tiny metallic shoes for the babies. And Jenny taught me how to put on fake eyelashes (which I managed to not actually quite get on on the actual day of the wedding... nobody was looking at me anyway) and introduced me to a new organic (so totally healthy) sucker that I used to bribe Avery through shopping trips the entire week... so I pretty much think she is the coolest person ever. For lots of other reasons too. We were sad to leave them. Really sad.
And Vanessa and David are living it up on the beaches of Thailand right now so I would miss them too, but mostly I just hate them. Just kidding. I only hate them a little. They will back in our neighborhood in January so we are excited.
So I have lots of laundry from the trip still and my house is a mess so naturally instead of cleaning it up I took Avery to the craft store and then came home made this little...I'm gonna call it a pom-pom garland, for my window. I was in a bad mood and needed to do a craft. And I am so annoyed by all the crazy Christmas stuff out already. Geez Christmas...you already get all of December...stop being so greedy. So in protest I did something Fallish. In my world blue walls + marigold orange= fall. Plus I don't really care, I like it so well I'll probably never take it down. And it brightened my day so much I might actually get the laundry done now.
I got the idea here. But the directions are wonky and don't work. I did 6x5 inch squares and used 8 or 9 sheets of tissue instead. Doesn't it look like Pom-pom fringe? I love it.
OK off to do sort the laundry. What are you doing instead of cleaning your house?
