This past weekend we drove to Purdue to tailgate for the football game with some of Drew's college friends.  Luckily the weather wasn't too cold! It was a great day!!

We stopped by Drew's Fraternity house and saw his brick!

Wedding invite project

Another fun project inspired by Pinterest! (inspiration found here) I took our wedding invite and cut it up and put it in a glass ornament ball to display on our picture wall.  Now instead all of our invites sitting in a box, we can admire it as we walk by our wall!

It's coming!!

My favorite holiday is only 6 weeks away!  I know it's early, but I'm so excited to decorate our new house, so I'm starting off slowly.

Can you see Penny looking out the right hand window?

Fall Celebration!

After Drew and I moved into our new house we knew we wanted to have a party and we decided that Fall would give us enough time to get all of our projects done. 

The party was great and we had so much fun!  Friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers helped us break in our new house.  Thank you to everyone that came! I wish I would have taken more pictures during the party but at least I got some shots of everything set up.

Chili and pulled pork

Acorn cookies

We had a party on Saturday and it was such a good time!  I made a bunch of food, and of course these cookies were inspired by Pinterest my favorite website.

I used the snack size nutter butter cookies, peanut butter, Hershey's kisses, and small chocolate chips.  I took apart the nutter butter and spread a little extra peanut butter on the cookie so it would hold the Hershey's kiss.  Then flipped it over and put a little dab of peanut butter to hold the chocolate chip. 

They were so yummy!!

Bucket Light

I found another fun project on Pinterest and luckily Drew humored me enough to try it out and it looks great!  He definitely looked at me like I was crazy when I said I wanted to make a bucket into a light fixture for the kitchen.  Who would have thought the Lowes garden section could provide such fun lighting!

 (original project inspiration and photo found here)
I picked up a couple pendant light kits at Home Depot and my handy husband wired it up in the attic!

I don't  have a picture of what the ceiling looked like before we put the lights up but basically it looked like someone had hung a pot rack over the island and took the rack but not the hooks and base that held it to the ceiling.  You can see below that the base of the rack is still in the ceiling. 

I love our new lights!!

Wedding Photo Strips

One of the best things we did for our wedding was to rent a photo booth!! Everyone had so much fun taking pictures and a few people even dropped their photo strips into our card box so I had a few of my own!

 I wanted to display them some how but they weren't fitting into any frames I had.  I ended up cutting each strip up and arranging them to fit. 

Now we have a fun frame on our wall reminding us of our great night!!
