The Peace Gardens…

It has been a MONTH almost to the day and boy have I been one busy bee!!  I successfully finished all my new instructor orientation up in the middle of nowhere, dolled myself up for a wedding, have built a fence, continued canning and done a few crafts all while planning from scratch 6 math classes for flipping!  It has been super hectic, but am blessed the weather is still beautiful and life is wonderful!



A glorious weekend – A review

The weekend started off with a fantastic Taco Potluck here at work.  To keep with the theme, I had made Chocolate Tres Leches cake from this recipe.  I can not even describe how delicious this cake was!

The Wedding

I realize that it has been about a few weeks or better since I have posted and although there have been no fun crafting activities with school back in full swing, our wedding photos have arrived and wanted to share!

I know that none of my family reads my blog; however, I want to give a huge thank you to my parents for hosting this delightful event at their home.  We definitely had a cost-effective wedding!  My mother, bless her heart, planned every single detail out and made it the day of my dreams!!  I love her so much!!

Also a huge thank you to Smokin on Site catering, that was the most delicious BBQ I have ever had in my life!!

A mighty “thank you” to our photographers, who were FREE!!  They may be amateurs but they captured everything we wanted anyways.  Our DJ who gave us a heck of a deal, my cousin!, who kept the party rockin until 2AM and the dance floor full the entire time!

Enjoy the photos!

Now we do not have a whole lot of money and we are trying to save up to take a vacation to see my brother who is stationed in San Diego this summer, so instead of taking a long lavish honeymoon we decided to take a 150 mile trip north of St. Paul to Duluth to see the great Lake Superior.  The husband has never been to Duluth and although I have seen Duluth a few times it was many moons ago.
