It is All About Perspective

Hello friends!

It has been awhile. Work is keeping me busy and wearing me out. I come home and crash, usually, so I don't have a lot of time for blog posts or anything really. Less that 2 weeks left before summer is here though, and you can expect to see me tons once that gets here! It has been an interesting couple of weeks. I was kind of having a bad run for awhile, but this last week made up for it all.

Although, I have the flu today, unfortunately. Boo! I was bragging that I was one of the very few people to not get it at work- staff and students alike. But yesterday it hit me like a ton of bricks and here I sit hoping it goes away soon.

But you know what? I don't care. You know why? I got my wedding dresses and shoes- 2 dresses and 2 pairs of shoes for less than 300 dollars! I love my first dress, and will where it for the ceremony and part of the reception but to be honest, I am much more of a short and fun dress kind of girl. I found the first one for so cheap, I was able to get a second short one to party down in! :) And then, I completed ALL my centerpieces and they are perfect...just what I envisioned. And I did all of them for less 50 bucks by buying everything at the thrift and dollar stores and making them myself. Very exciting! 

Best of all though, Kevin and I are getting our first apartment this June. My Uncle owns it and is giving us a killer deal. It is not huge, but it covers all utilities and it has 2 bedrooms so I get a crafting room! Woo-hoo. And since it is family, he is letting me paint it. AWESOME. I won't be moving in until after the wedding (we are old school kids) but you can bet I will be down there everyday painting and decorating it. So is a good week!

Anyways, enough with my yabbering. I still have nothing new to show because I have been so busy/sick/etc. and I am saving all the wedding stuff for the big day. So I thought instead I would show you this painting. It is done in my favorite colors, (also the wedding colors) and it pretty much sums me up perfectly! I title it "Different Perspectives" which is fitting for my post too. :) Have a great week everybody!
