DIY Chalkboard Sign

If you know me, you know I am not a crafty person. I am however trying to change that. I saw this on Pinterest and I KNEW I had to try it out. I, like the majority of the female population, am obsessed with anything chalkboard (and monogram and chevron). This craft was super simple, super cheap, and super adorable. Let me know if you try this one out! I think you would really love it.

This doesn’t take rocket science, trust me. Take some paint, plop it on the pan, and paint away. 

I would suggest two or three coats of this chalkboard paint. LET IT DRY IN BETWEEN LAYERS!
And when you are finished, let it dry for 24 hours before you write on it because i’m an impatient little girl and it didn’t go over so well. Haha. 

Such a simple craft! I am going to be posting mine up in the kitchen for a little decoration! Again, let me know if you try this one out! I would love to see it!

Oh ya, I have a wedding to plan!

While i’ve been stalking pinterest religiously planning my wedding, i’ve had so many ideas coming and going through my head! 
The wedding planning process has gone a little something like this…

As soon as I got engaged I went out and bought every wedding magazine in site. Soon after, I bought a strawberry shake from Sonic and proceeded to lounge by my pool and day dream about thousand dollar weddings I cant afford. Hey, a girl can dream! 
Also, I did a very “bride” thing and ran to the nearest bridal show I could find. Who doesn’t love going to look at 509390 different cakes, caterers, floral arrangements, so forth and so on?!

While at this bridal show I came across one venue that I knew my fiancé would LOVE. I myself was set on a different one (from pictures), but I knew he would love this one. I went and looked at the one I loved and although it was beautiful, I felt like the other place might be it. We went and toured the venue I knew M would like and I was right, he loved it. (1 POINT BRIDE) We called the next day to tell the events coordinator we loved it and wanted to book. Soon following, we signed our lives away. 😉 

I’ve spent countless hours on Pinterest trying to find things I love. I’ve even attempted a few DIY projects. Lets just say i’m NOT the crafty one out of the group, but hey, i’m trying! 

We also had our “Save the Date” photos done and I could not have been more happy with the way they turned out! I had so much fun shooting them and it just reassures me that I am truly marrying my best friend! 
Wedding planning has been an adventure for me so far. Its a lot different than just pinning things I like on pinterest. Can you believe this stuff actually costs MONEY?! Okay, kidding, but still. Its been a lot of fun so far! We still have a LOT of things to figure out, but for right now, I feel as if i’m staying on track! 
6 more months until this handsome man gets to be my husband!
