I Know What I Am Going To-Do Today

WOW!!!  Last week was rough :/  Every single one of us had the stomach flu :p  We weren't able to get as much done as I would have liked, but thanks to many wonderful friends, it was a very profitable week ;)

Hey, are you ready for a cool random fact?  Yesterday was my one year anniversary of this blog :)  

It is hard to believe that it has only been one year.  No one looked at my first post that first day.  Now I have  had over 131,000 page views and 179 followers... not to mention the 58 finished quilts and over 70 finished sewing projects.  It is pretty cool ;)

Hopefully this year will be just as exciting :) ... probably not as prolific ;)

So, lets take a look at last week's list of To-Do's ;)


Go hunting for napkins, cupcake holders, and all things wedding :) Due to illness, this has been moved to tomorrow :)

Start painting mason jars antique blue like THIS  Scrapped because the paint was some how ruined during shipment :/ we have a new plan for the jars :)  Thank heavens for flexibility :)

Make Bridesmaids bouquets like THIS DONE!!! :)  Blogged HERE.

Finish Anna's Wedding Quilt for her shower this Saturday. DOnE!  Blogged HERE.

Buy an new outfit for me and Anna for the Shower on Saturday. Too sick.  Went with spanx and an old, but cute, outfit ;)

***Bonus Stuff***
I was able to baste and start a little FMQ on my scrappytripalong. Blogged HERE.

We also had our first quilt committee meeting for the Peteeneet Quilt Show.  I get to be the chairman this year :)  What an AMAZING group of ladies!!!

#1 Place wedding announcement in the newspaper
#2 Make wedding cake's and freeze them. (I'm making my mom's FAMOUS carrot cake and maybe some kind of super cook x-box grooms cake)
#3 Go to Gygi's in SLC and get all of the party and cake supplies.
#4 Buy a dress for me and pants for one of my sons
#5 Color my hair (yes, some grey is peeking through ;) ...probably more so than usual ;)
#6  Finalize photographer... more like find one :/
#7  Finalize wedding reception helpers, music, decorations, etc.
#8  Finish my scrappyquiltalong fmq as my relaxation and salvation from the stress of it all :)

  1. You can do it!

    And the flu sucks, but hopefully you've now got it out of the way! You sure wouldn't want to have that the week of the wedding!

  2. Happy Anniversary! What a great year! Congrats on such a beautifully productive year! :)

  3. I really like the paper flowers! What a cool idea!. You are a great wedding planner =)

    I'm planning to work more on samples for a quilt class I'm teaching. And, get some more fiber spun. In between doing some laundry, and office paperwork (YUK!).



Thanks for leaving your thoughts! I LOVE to hear from you :) I cherish every word :) I read ALL of your comments and try to reply to every single one.... but it sometimes takes me a few days xoxo
