New Blog Venture

So it's been a few years since I have posted on any of my blogs. Took a break to have a child and get a Masters in Teaching Art. Now that I am a stay-at-home Mom I decided to start up again. I have a new blog called Hooked on Pinterest

I am addicted to Pinterest, really addicted. I've started this blog as a way to record my experience with my Pinterest projects and share them with all of you. I will post my successes and my failures and everything in-between. I hope you enjoy my Pinterest journey.

With the recent tragedy in Haiti, we find our selves looking for ways to help. The best way people can help is to donate money, even if it is only $5 per person, it will help. Here are some links to places where you can donate to help Haiti.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti and all their family and friends around the world.

Aruba Vacation

A and I just got back from our first ever trip to Aruba, we had a great time and wish we did not have to return to the cold and snow. I have a few pictures to share with you. We stayed at the Radisson Beach Resort, for 5 nights. A and I played golf, rode ATVs, enjoyed the beach and took a Catamaran snorkeling (really A was the only one who went snorkeling, I was just along for the boat ride, big fear of fish).

This pic was taken during a stop on an ATV tour that we took. We were on top of a giant rock.

Everyday we sat under these grass huts called Palapas.

Our room at the Radisson had a Caribbean/Asian/Relaxing design. We'll be redoing our master bedroom and were inspired by the laid back style of our hotel room.

The room had these amazing floor to ceiling Asian inspirated screens that opened up to a balcony. When closed they still let in light but, allowed for privacy.

All in all, it was a great trip and we can not wait till the next time that we can get back to Aruba.

One Year of Blogging

I can't believe it has been an entire year since I started this blog and blogging in general. I thought it might be fun to re-post my very first post. I have learned so much since I posted this Your Perfect Wedding post, I cannot wait to see how much I will learn in the next year. Enjoy!

You can have a perfect wedding as long as you stay true to yourself and your fiance, you will have the perfect wedding for you.
After you have enjoyed a few days of being engaged you might feel like you want to start planning. The best thing you can do at this time is to dream up with you fiance what you envision this day being, not the budget, not the guest list, but what this day means to the two of you.
So grab a pen and paper and write down the following:
  1. What time of year do the two of you love.
  2. Is there a special place or kind of place that means something to the both of you.
  3. Whats your favorite color ( this is more for the bride than the groom)
  4. Do you have favorite foods.
  5. Are there any special wedding traditions that mean something to either one of you.
  6. What do you mean to each other.
  7. Do you like to hang out with a few friends at a time or is your motto the more the merrier.
  8. And last but not least what describes the perfect wedding to each of you.
Really discuss these items with your fiance, because this is what you’ll refer back to when making most of your future wedding decisions. This will also be a good time for you to get an idea of anything that your fiance feels is important and should be included in the wedding during your planning.
And of course have fun with this and never forget why you're getting married in the first place.
PS: Go through this excerise before you talk to your sets of parents it will give you a clear idea of what you what before other people start putting in their two cents.

I Miss You So Much, Jax

On Thursday morning my great dog Jax pass away suddenly from what we now believe may have been a brain tumor. He was only 6 years old and full of life. Aaron and I miss him so much it hurts, as do all the people who knew him well.

He loved playing catch me if you can, so agile that none of us people could catch him. He loved chasing squirrels along the fence in our back yard, even if he never catch them. He had a big bark but, would never hurt a fly. He was always the center of attention and always willing to break dance on the floor to entertain everyone. There are too many things that Jax loved about life and that we loved about him to list.

All I have to say is that we will always love him and miss him forever.

Book Review: 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget

"10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget"
by the writers of wise bread

This is a great resource for saving money. I took this out from the library a few weeks ago and found some very helpful tips about saving money. Usually when I take books like these out, I do not really learn anything because they are filled with the same old tips; create a budget, brown bag your lunch, etc... This book is different because it breaks everything down by specific categories and tips that you can follow to really save some money that you probably have not seen before.

Here are some of the categories they cover related to Weddings:
  • Resources for saving on clothing
  • How to save on the cake
  • Planning, so you save money
  • etc...

Show Us Your Life: Honeymoon

This post is Show Us Your Life: Honeymoon, check all the other people participating in this blog hop at Kelly's Korner.

The day after the wedding, we flew over to Europe for our 2 week honeymoon. Our first destination was Paris. We fell in love with all the site and sounds and can not wait till our next trip to the City of Lights, whenever that may be.

While we were in Paris we took two side trips one to Monet's Garden, as an artist this was an amazing place to visit.

The other side trip was to Versailles, the palace was interesting but I found the landscaping and fountains to be breath taking. We rented a golf cart that we could drive around the grounds, as well as renting a row boat that Aaron used to row us out to the middle of the man made lake.

After spending a week in Paris we flew to Venice for a few days, this is a great city to spend a few days in if you are in Italy or just passing through, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

Our final stop on our honeymoon was Rome. This city was full of excitement and history, Rome is a place where the ancient coincides with modern.

I hope that someday I get to take a vacation like this one again.
