6th Bead Soup Blog Party

I signed up again this year to do the Bead Soup Blog Party that is hosted by Lori Anderson over at Pretty Things.

My partner is Becky Pancake of Becky Pancake Bead Designs. Yes, that's her real name and I just love it! So fun! So head on over and check Becky out.

 Here is a link to all 400 participants. Yikes! I don't know how Lori doesn't pull her hair out putting everything together.

It's too late for you to sign up but I do hope that you will come back on the reveal dates for the blog hop and hop along with us!

To kick this party off right, I am going to giveaway the necklace that I made at the last Bead Soup Blog Party that I participated in. I'm still figuring out the logistics of the giveaway so stay tuned!

Time Flies When You're Getting Married!

Wow! I haven't logged in in a while and Blogger has gone all crazy, funky on me! Bare with me while I'm figuring everything out, like how to make my banner look right...(if you know how to fix it lemme know)...already i'm digressing, lol.

 So much has happened since I was here last.

got married,
went on a cruise,
acquired a stepson,
acquired a neurotic stepdog,
and am trying to adjust to the married life
 while my husband ( i just love the sound of that!) still lives four hours away!

So, there's still a lot going on but I'm once again gonna try to keep up with this blog. My friend Stacie over at Park Avenue asked for some wedding pics so here are some. Also, if you are a fan of LeeLu Creations on Facebook (shameless plug!) I posted some wedding pics there too. I will post more, these are just to get you started with some wedding eye candy.

Our wedding favors.
Homemade blueberry jam.
 My dad grew the blueberries and me and mom made the jam. Got the idea and recipe from this blog.

My and my girls!

Me and the mister. :)

My sister said that we were bringing sexy back in this pic. Who am I to argue?

Love this pic of Rob and my girls!

And for you fashionistas out there...the shoes!

My bouquet. We did all the flowers ourselves and saved a ton of money.

 The beginnings of my wedding quilt...

Love this super sweet message from my little cousin Emily. :)

Of course there are more pics to come and maybe I'll even share a little story about our wedding venue drama...stay tuned!

Excuse My Mess

Hey ya'll! Just wanted to ask you to excuse my mess. I'm sprucing things up around here and hope to get things looking pretty real soon!
