So this weekend has been awesome! Saturday evening Kevin and I did our engagement photos and oh my gosh- it was a blast! I have been planning them for quite some time and put a lot of work into them and it was so worth it! I found an old, abandoned house recently, completely overgrown with roses, bushes, trees- everything. It is the coolest place in the world. The place has tons of treasures too, just laying around. I want so many of the things there, but the place is too cool to take them. lol. Anyway, I planned an entire mad tea party and gothic shoot. The whole process was so much fun and I am hoping they turn out great. I often hate pictures of myself so I have some anxiety but our photographer is so good and she puts you at ease so fingers crossed, they turn out well! Check out this sneak peek...I love these ones so I hoping that is a good sign! She is posting another sneak peek this week so I will share those too, to get your opinions. :)

As if that wasn't  enough fun, the neighbors of this place had four adorable kittens and with a little bit of convincing, Kevin and I took home a little furball of our own! She is so cute! She reminds me so much of my previous cat, Sweeney. I am just beyond thrilled that Kevin agreed to keeping her at the apartment so I can have a kitten. Even though I am not moved in yet and won't be for a good while, he is going to keep her and take care of her and I am going to help as much as I can during the days when I am here. How awesome is my fiance?! haha. ♥ ♥ ♥

Also, I finally came over and hung up all the pictures and art and some shelves and just decked out the apartment. I found a book call "Funky Shui" and based the decorating off of it. It was so much fun! And both Kevin and I are loving the results! We opted not to paint the walls since paint is so expensive and time consuming but you can still do a lot with art and decorations. I will post pictures when I fill in some holes this week. (Yay for an excuse to go thrift shopping!)

I also finished the last of the plushes this weekend (for now)! So all in all, this weekend was AWESOME. Hope you all had fun too!

All packed and ready to got Vanessa, Amy, and FoxySam!

First of all, your engagement pictures=amazing. I know the rest are going to be just as good, if not better. Second, congrats on the baby kitten! Third, I knew which yeti was coming my way considering it has no mouth! lol. I'm going to talk my husband into mailing out your package tomorrow. I can't leave it out in the car (melty candles!) and bringing it to work will invite little monsters to ask continuously if it's for them. lol.

Holy CRAP, you have posted a lot recently! I can't believe how much I missed! I think I can respond to all of this best in list form:

1. I had seen the awesome pictures of you, but not the ones with Kevin in them OMG, they are so beautiful!

2. MEAT LOAF FRONT ROW CENTER?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I am so happy for you, this is your dream!

3. I can't remember if I told you Happy Birthday. I think I did, but if I didn't, a belated Happy Birthday to you! I'm so glad you had a nice time.

4. Oh my yarn, that is a LOT of Yetis! I've had to make multiples in the past, and I know what it's like, for better or worse...

5. Congratulations on the curio cabinet being displayed in the museum! That is such an amazing achievement!

6. Two words: FLUFFEH KITTEN!

I'm sure I've forgotten about a couple of this, but that was the bulk of my reactions to the TWO PAGES that I had to catch up on! I didn't realize that I had stayed away so long!

Much love, talk to you soon!
