Bridesmaid Dress Shopping!

One weekend since my BFF and sister were available we decided to do a little bridesmaid dress shopping not expecting to find anything just begin the looking process. We went to one store before going to Bella Bridesmaid which is the best place to find your dress. The girls tried on several dress that were so cute and my style. But then suddenly one dress stood out among all the rest. Now the picture below shows some of my favorite but not the winner. Do you honestly think I would spoil the moment and show the actual bridesmaid dress?

Everyone know I love to do crafts so when I have the opportunity to do something for someone else or myself I definitely will do it! One of my friends at work knows I love to make burlap signs for front doors. She asked me if I could do a cupcake for her daughters 1st birthday! Of course I said yes, it would be my first one and so I wanted to see how it would turn it out. I would say it is absolutely perfect!!

Next is the Pumpkin wreath I made for our front door. It took forever and was sometime frustrating. But I was determined to finish it. And I did and I am so happy with the final result!!

Let me tell y'all all a great story about our first major issue in our new house. One morning before school I was taking Dixie (my dog) outside like I usually do and I noticed that there were wet paw prints all over the porch. I came back inside to find all this water on there floor (How I missed this when I walked out still confuses me). I then looked up and saw that we had three leaks and the ceiling looked wet but it was still all sealed. I immediately called Grant, Mom, and told them what happened. I found someone that was going to come by that afternoon to check it out and help solve the problem. That afternoon Grant had gotten home before me and called me while I was still at work, this is what he said "Was the ceiling still on the ceiling or on the floor when you left this morning." I said " UM...on the ceiling. Well as you can tell it had fallen throughout the day. And when I got home I found Grant standing there shaking his head and he had put the doggie gates up blocking the den. It was so funny!! 

Now on to the what caused this little/big leak. Our toilet in the master bedroom had been leaking for several weeks and it had settled and mold had began to grow and finally it just started coming through the sheet rock. Now we have a much bigger whole than the picture below. Grant and I have gotten used to it. We plan on fixing it but are waiting until things settle down because it will be a lot of work. They have to remove half or the ceiling in the room just to make it look normal. So we are not looking forward to that but we know thats the price you pay owning a house.
