One LONG Post

Josh and I had our 1st wedding anniverary on the 16th of this month. If you click an enlarge this picture you can see me wearing my anniversary gift. Or you can see a picture of them in the box below.

This is the gift I gave Josh. It's what he gave his best men, but he forgot to get one for himself.

My wonderful husband installed the falcet and soap despenser pictured below one weekend while I was in Texas, which is why I don't have a before picture. It was a nice surprise to come home to, and it looks soooo much better than the one that we had!
These are pictures of our newly trimmed shrubs. Really wish that I would have taken a before picture for this one too so that you could appreciate how much they all needed to be trimmed.
I bought this onesie from walmart with the embrodery around the neck already intact, but I added the ladybug. I found a clipart picture on the internet and afixed the fabric with double sided adhesive and stitched around the edge. If you look closely, you will notice that I used buttons for the spots and the ends of the antenas. This was my first experience with sewing on a knit fabric. It was interesting. I had to seam rip quite a few times.
This is a bracelet that I made for my adopted mom at church. I made it to match the necklace pictured below it that she bought from a local craft show I believe. I thought it turned out nicely. She will be wearing it to her youngest son's wedding that will take place next month.

And lastly, I just returned home from South Padre Island, TX where I had my girls trip with Mom's family which included, Grandma, Mom, my aunts, female cousins, and our Louisana bunch, which included Grandma's sister and neices.

My comment just vanished! UGH!

So, I did my best imagining the uncut shrubs. I imagined they were somewhat like my yard was last week before I mowed! :P

You did a great job on the onesie! And the bracelet is beautiful! Definitely looks like a set with the onesie!

Thanks for sharing the pics from the trip! I really like that one of Aunt Kim by herself. And Holly taking a bite of that big burger!

I was thinking today that I completely forgot about your anniversary! And you even listed it on this post! I guess the long post made me forget yesterday!
