I am getting ready to send out invitations, if anyone would like one please email me your address. I probably have most of you, but if I haven't contacted you to get your address please email me. Thanks! The invite online, does not have personal info, so creepers don't show up to my wedding!

For Easter I made a really cheesy easter egg hunt for Cole. He got off of work at 7, and I left a card and an egg on his car. In the egg there were directions to my house. And then at my house I had different eggs hidden with things to do. We didn't get to everything, but it was fun.

The first egg had directions to The Crepery, this is one of our favorite places to go eat. So if you haven't been there go try it out!

These are very flattering photos!

Next we dyed easter eggs. On the package I think the directions were wrong and it didn't say to add water. By the end the egg shells were dissolving in the vinegar. It was a little gross. Cole has never rolled easter eggs down a hill, so we were going to do that....but they just sat in my fridge for a week and then got garbaged!

After that we ended with a movie...and to watch the movie we built ourselves a little fort. It wasn't very extravagant, we ran out of things to hold the blankets on. We watched Tangled, I just love that show! And here is a photo of Cole in our fort, he will probably kill me if he knew I put this online.....ooops!

Finish A Project A Day!!! {Seventeen}

I have been sewing some projects for Joel Dewberry for quilt market! It has been so fun! This is one of the skirts that will be at their booth, so if any of you are going watch for them! And check their blog out to see the photos that I did for them. They are such nice people, they have been so fun to work with!

Finish A Project A Day!!! {Sixteen}

I got the bouquet started and that is a project, I still need to cover the stems and finish it off. I love it!! I am so excited! I know I should leave some things to a surprise, so people don't feel like they have already seen my entire wedding. I am having so much fun making things for the wedding and I just want to show everyone. If you get sick of wedding talk on my blog, don't look at it! :)

Quote from President Monson

I was listening to this talk while I was working today and I really liked this. It is motivating me to finish what I start!
Great Expectations by President Thomas S. Monson

Persevere Toward Goals
Second, beware of the flashy start and the fade-out finish. I love the simple wisdom found in this poem by an unknown author. I don’t think it’s a literary masterpiece, but you can understand it.

Stick to your task till it sticks to you;
Beginners are many, but enders are few.
Honor, power, place, and praise
Will come, in time, to the one who stays.

Stick to your task till it sticks to you;
Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too;
For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
Will come life’s victories, after awhile.8
