:: Painting letters ::

I got a really good deal on these letters at {Hobby Lobby} a few weeks ago. I attempted to paint them a rustic brown and the paint didn't stick. The letters have a little bit of texture and gold shimmer -I think this was my problem. Does anyone have any paint tips! I loved these letters - I wanted to put them in our master bedroom, any ideas???

HELP with Fabric!!!

So this chair was given to me, by my lovely granny with the instructions to make it my own!

However, I need help with Fabric, I don't even know where to begin!!! I love this chair, love projects and even have someone who will recover it...I just don't know where to begin on color, texture, brands, etc... By the way this chair is one of the most comfortable ones I have ever set in - so soft and cozy!

Any suggestions anyone??? ~M

I have found that I LOVE printing coupons, clipping them from the paper, picking them up at stores down the grocery isle and searching for them, endlessly! I personally wanted to share some websites you can print printable coupons. The coupons are manufacture coupons so they can be combined with store coupons. The majority of these coupons are Grocery Coupons. I have found lots of $1.00 coupons :)
For all you new mom's, mother-n-laws, sister's, aunts, etc... You can always go to the baby websites and sign up for free e-mails and mail offers. These offers are GREAT. Randomly, I'll get free diapers in the mail, formula, LOTS OF COUPONS for wipes, swimmers, diapers, etc. There are usually $3.00-5.00 diaper coupons off.
*I don't have children, but I love buying things for my sister-n-law that has a 3 month old. This all started for me, when I was going to one of her showers and had some random Huggies coupon for $5.00 off diapers (received it in my e-mail). I hadn't planned on buying diapers as part of my gift, but with the coupon I ended up paying less than $4.00 for a big package of diapers!!! I thought that was a bargain!
Some of the baby sites I have come across are:
Enjoy searching, printing & clipping! Morgan

Husband and Wife....just as God wants it!
Spanki you ROCK!
AMAZING! more to come...
Whistler Blackcomb Mountains...Love British Columbia, Ye!

Snowmobiling for the Husband....

Fairmont Resort! Ahhh, the only way to go...

We joined in marriage on April 4th - it was one of the most remarkable day of my life. It's amazing how the Lord leads you to your mate and allows you to have no doubts about where you are in life. If you right with the lord, life is so sweet! I love you my dear husband...Love, M
We embarked on a 3 day extravaganza before the wedding. With family arriving from out of state, family dinners, visiting, camaraderie, laughter, lots of love, hugs and was wonderful! Then "our wedding day" came and it was out of a fairy tale, every candle was lit, guest seated, sun setting, the cannon d playing in the background...the preacher looking at us asking the most important questions of our life, and then we became united as husband and wife. We then traveled to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada for a 6 day honeymoon, that was better than any trip we had ever taken...The villages, snow, late night fires, hot chocolate, ski slopes, LOTS OF LOVE, and more laughter...Josh I had the best time of "our" lives...we'll always have Whistler!
Thank you all for being a part of our marriage! We love you! Morgan & Josh Newman

A few pictures of the place where were getting married! Peaceful....

I haven't been the best blogger these past few is busy, wedding planning is coming along and little with sleep! Just wanted to let you all know I am still here~ We did lay 3 pallets of grass this weekend at the ranch were getting married at, ahhh it looks GREAT! I worked every muscle in my body I didn't know I even had....we were so sore, but totally worth it! We hung some curtains this past weekend in our bedroom, finished our laundry room (that's connected to the new carport) and received a few little wedding gifts in the mail....I have attached a picture of our china, which we received ALL of. Love it...I hope you can see it! It has swirls all around the rim with silver trim.

Were down for the count....20 days to go until I'm Mrs. Josh Newman! I just love the sound of that! Just perfect, God's "WILL" will take you to wonderful places!

"Thank you" notes for the guest tables

Thank you cards for each place setting
at the wedding!
I decided the tables for the wedding needed some color....As of now, the table scape includes clear glass vases w/white candles w/grapevine around the outer edge of the glass I thought the cards would be a cute dash of spring color in front of each place setting (glossy of course - hoping the candles will reflect the glossiness)!!! There about post card size!!!

::February update::

February is here and were less than 2 months away for the wedding! Yeah!!! My mother went with me Saturday to do the final fitting for my wedding gown. It was such a blessing to have her share that moment with me. I really enjoyed our time together. We got up early and drove the Brenham...what a pretty drive that was...we enjoyed our Starbucks coffee and each others company. A wonderful mother-daughter morning, which I hope we have many more of. Sunday, I slept in a little - - missed church but I needed some sleep. I have gotten up early the past 21 days and just needed an extra hour or two to roll around in my cozy bed. I then enjoyed a cup of coffee in my adorable new coffee cups (bought a Ross for $2.99 each) - then got knee deep in addressing, stamping and stuffing our wedding invitations! By the way I now know they sell stamps at more post office lines for me. Yeah from Kroger!!! Then as no surprise my wonderful STB husband fixed dinner....he is such a blessing to me and I LOVE HIM! I know were going to have a wonderful life together. He is so good to me and I don't know what I would do without him!
We started our carport/washroom remodel this month too. Josh has done an excellent job on taking this task on. The old carport was torn down and demolished along with the old concrete. We had new concrete poured twice the size I might add. Were finally going to have some storage too and even our own work/craft tables. I can't wait to have my own crafting space....It's so needed...The contractors start this morning. I can't wait to go home at lunch and see what progress they have made! I will keep you all posted.
Thanks for listening to me blab....Just wanted to do a little update. I hope to post pictures soon.

Engagement Pic's!!!

Engagement is the day! It's quite exciting for me...Were finally going to have some professional pictures taken. It seemed like this day would never come. For me, it's kind of like what do we wear, do we take props, do we take layers of clothing, etc...I am really EXCITED and Spanki Mills is going to be taking them this afternoon. Her work is TERRIFIC! I know what I have pictured in my head the pictures will look like but I am in hopes she will surprise me and go far and beyond the normal pictures. I don't want the standing behind Josh and us just smiling. I really hope she captures the moments, smiles, laughter, etc...Which I have seen in all of her other pictures. There so neat! I know I have picked the right person for the job & the neat part is it's not even her job, she does it for the passion of photography! I will keep you all posted and hope to have some on my blog in the next few weeks.

My sweet stb mother and father-n-law recently moved to Arizona. We have just started having a hard time with them not being 15 minutes down the road...they have only been gone 2 weeks but it feels more like 2 months. It's AMAZING you don't know what you have until its not there anymore...There flying in this weekend and were ready. Miss you guys & love you so much!


Time flys and I don't know where it goes. Were 80 days out from the wedding and there is so much left too, but yet so much has been done. This past Friday I was nauseous to my stomach all day, I didn't like feeling that way. I couldn't wait to get home and just wrap my arms around Josh and be hugged by him. By hugging him I know things in life are okay. No matter how crazy things get one simple hug from him and nothing in the world seems to matter but him and I :)

We registered this past weekend. Wow...that was time consuming. Picking out China was like picking out that perfect pair of shoes to go with that one fun dress in your closet. Something you have to have, but will use seldom. I made a commitment to myself to keep 2 place settings of our china out everyday. As a new wife I am hoping that each Sunday when the 2 of us sit down for dinner we can use our very special and beautiful china. Something our kids will look back and parents used this china every Sunday for Sunday Dinner. Good plan, huh! I'll let you know in a year how that turned out :)
