My Son's Wedding

What a whirl wind this last few weeks have been! We frantically got the main bathroom completed on the Wednesday before the wedding for our family and guests. The weather called for 70% chance of showers on Saturday but we had sunny and hot weather! It may have rained a bit during the reception but we never noticed. Since the reception was an earlier one, 4:00-7:00 pm we decided to have an after pool party at our home and the weather was cooperative then as well! The hot and humid weather allowed for some great pool volleyball games! Just when you think everything will fall apart it all comes together. The ceremony was beautiful! We picked 1000 zinnias at a friend of my son's farm Friday morning to make centerpieces, corsages, boutonnieres and the wedding parties' bouquets! My oldest daughter played the flute with a pianist before the ceremony and the recessional song. We all walked down the aisle to a violin piece. My favor boxes added color to the tables. I had made 353 and they had put out table seatings for 352!!!! Whew! Just made it! My picture board that was at the shower was displayed on the gift table. I added a "Just Married" car made from the Sweethearts cartridge to the board. Maybe now I can get back to some crafting! I know I need to make some thank you cards for some very helpful friends!!!!

Bathroom Remodel

I know that I have been non-blogging but lots has taken place. First was a remodeling of our main bathroom, then my son's wedding, next the master bathroom. Here are the before, during and after pictures of the main bathroom. I am happy with how it turned out. They are going to replace my faucets to free standing instead of pedestals as I had ordered but they are on back order. These got me through the wedding since we had family home with guests. My summer has just been flying by!!!!!!!!!!!!
