Anyway, you may or may not have noticed I’ve been AWOL for a week or so, but I do have some decent excuses.
1. Packing, because we have to move out of our house by the end of the weekend and my planting/farming husband is of little help with that at the moment.
2. Looking for houses, which includes driving across the state looking for houses to move to this town where we live that has no housing market and no houses for sale.
3. Planning a 40th anniversary party/60th birthday party for my mom with my 5 siblings and making it to my nieces baptism and friend’s wedding in the same weekend.
4. Dreaming of having a new HOME where I can live for more than 7-12 months.
5. Playing with my adorable new baby goat kids.
Anyway, I made you a collage of my weekend, in case you were curious.Click to enlarge.
Top left to right: A. My parents, cutting the cake this weekend; B. my sister-in-law with my newly baptized niece, Ava; C. my parents cutting their cake 4o years ago (actually this wasn’t a photo from the weekend; my bad).
Middle: A. The caterers at the wedding I attended, holding the remains of edible centerpieces—a delicious trio of cheese spreads. Why didn’t I think of that? P.S. The food was by Chef Dominique in Sioux Falls, SD and it was AMAZING! B. Me pretending to get a photo of my husband, but really trying to get a picture of the cheetah skin hanging on the wall in the library room behind him; the wedding was in a museum (The Museum of Visual Materials) that I’ve never been to. C. Again, pretending to photograph my kindergartener, but really getting a shot of the décor/vibe of the reception room.
Bottom: A. After the wedding, we headed down the street a few blocks to visit the falls of Sioux Falls. B. Gorgeous tree blooming fuchsia outside my front window. Wish I knew what kind of tree it was. I’d line my future driveway with them. C. A car crossing a road flooded with at least a foot of water on our way home. The sign said the road was closed to cars, but seeing as how we didn’t have an alternate route, we waited and watched this car and then attempted it ourselves. They closed the road to all vehicles the next morning.
And how about a kid photo for good measure?!
Well hello precious! This pretty little lady doesn't even have a name yet! Need to work on that.
My apologies for the shortness of Wedding Wednesday; doesn’t moving suck?
Anyway, how about these wedding day bean bag games?
Step one: Delegate the building of the boards to future husband or handy man if you don’t have time.
Step two: Spray paint white or desired color.
Step three: Project your profiles onto a big sheet of paper on the wall; you can use just a lamp if you need. Trace, cut, lay on the boards, trace, paint. Voila! Profile face boards. Of course there are several ways you can get the faces on the boards, but that would just be my plan of action. The hair bow and bow tie are nice touches.
And I’m assuming the bean bags are made to coordinate with the wedding colors and are absolutely adorable.
Love this idea for a wedding day game! My favorite part: You can use them for years to come! I might even make myself some when I finally get a home. Ah….there I go dreaming again….
See you soon!
