The Unthinkable

So, the unthinkable has happened.... I walked in to a fabric/ craft store and didn't come out with any new patterns or fabric.  In fact, I only spend $1.39.  This was a strange.  I usually have a hard time staying under 50 dollars when I go in.

I wonder what this means??

Wedding Planning: Venue

Hello All,

So I am still working on my wedding planning.  However, I have been a bit lazy as of late.  I still need to find a location, and have only really visited one.  The main reason for my procrastination has been my discouragement  with the topic of venues.  I don't know how many of you have planned weddings, but I have to say this has been my least favorite part so far.

It is so much fun looking at pictures online, figuring out who the bridal party will be and what they will wear.  However, the location has been a major pain.  The places that are affordable are too small and really offer no services.  Other places that are beautiful and perfectly fit my vision, including services and size are so damn expensive.  Call me a miser, but I think it is ridiculousness to spend 8-10k on a venue you will only be spending 5 hours in?  Perhaps I am just really naive  about all of this and had no idea what I was getting in to.

On the plus side, I have made a list of 5 places to check …

My New Addition!

So here it is!  This is my new permanent accessory!  I got my new tat on the 14th and it was a long time coming.   I have actually been planning this tattoo for about 2 years now.  There are a couple different things represented in this tattoo.

First and foremost I got this tattoo to commemorate having my kidney transplant for over 10 years.  Yes you heard that right, 10 years.  If you don't know much about organ transplant, this is a big deal.  I am actually on my way to 12 years as of right now.  (So think happy thoughts!).  The color is also symbolic.  The green represents as both kidney disease and organ transplant as far as cause ribbon colors go. 

There is also a needle and thread, and if you look closely there are two small stitches at the top of the bow knot.  For those of you who know me, the reason is pretty apparent.  I love sewing, it has become my passion and has pretty much taken up all my creative energy. 

Right now it is almost all healed up, but itching like craz…
