So Abbey had it set in her mind that she was going to be Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween, so being a good mother I started my search for costumes. And like many mothers did not find what their child wanted. I however had a backup plan.....also know as my mother in law (Donna). Donna sews, and she sews well, so I found a pattern, and fabric, and then I gave her a call. I asked her, if she would be willing to sew her granddaughter a strawberry shortcake costume, which being a great grandmother, she could not say no. Here is Abbey in one of the two costumes that Donna made. Abbey loved her costume. Thanks Donna.

Pumpkin Carving

Here is the pumpkin we (read as: I carved). Our friends (Shonta & Scott) have been hosting a pumpkin carving party for about three years now. I being a novice carver, was not sure what I was getting myself into. They made it easy. They have all these patterns, that you photocopy, and then carve onto the pumpkin. Abbey picked out Cinderella and then ran off to play.

Pumpkin Patch 2008

We meet some of Abbey's friends at a Pumpkin Patch last week. Thought you might enjoy. This is not the one we picked out, but we did take home 3 baby pumpkins and one we are going to carve on Thursday. This will be the first time we carve one with her, it should be interesting what she wants us to do.

Gainesville Wedding Expo, Sept. 14th

I spent Sunday, September 14Th surrounded by many blissful brides. It was a wonderful day full of answering questions and listening to eager brides. To create the booth, I got inspiration from my brides on Saturday, the 13Th. We had two main tables. This table showcased Fuchsia pink, lime green and brown. There are a lot of elements that could be used on one table, or on many tables.

This table was the show stopper, full of red roses & petals, and floating candles.
