My family

And the count down begins....

My son proposed tonight to his love and happily she said yes!  He planned a family and friend cookout for the occasion that she knew nothing about.  Surprise, Surprise....  I was so proud of him to taking care of all the notifications of her friends and family.  Soo sweet... 

Anyway, I decided to do some crafting and baking for it.  I finally got to show off my save-the-date magnets.  Everyone thought they were soooo cute. 

I saw this super looking count down chalkboard sign on "GroupDealz" and decided that I could make that. So I did.  I bought a cheap- I mean- less expensive frame from Big Lots. The frame was plastic and black so my husband scruffed it up some so I could paint it white.  I tried giving it some texture by applying glue along the frame. Then we sprayed the frame white with Krylon paint for plastic.  It looked just perfect.  Then we applied 2 coats of spray on chalkboard paint to the particle board backing.  After the board dried, I measured and cut out the words "days until" with my cricut.  Too cute! and super simple.......

I tried to grow some wheat grass for a table decoration. I saw on pinterest the other day how beautiful the grass was on a decorated table.  But it didn't grow.  So instead I went to Wal-mart and bought some daisy-like flowers, some potting soil, and a plastic flower bowl.  After the flowers were planted, I placed the flowers in a round cheese box/container.  I thought it would be cute to add some pictures of them to the container.  They kind of look like flower seed packets.  I gave her mom one of them and I kept one to put on my fridge.

Doesn't the table look nice?
