Wedding Progress and A Giveaway!

Hello blog friends!

I want to sincerely apologize for my lack of posting the past several weeks. Between a large-scale acquisition at work and wedding planning, I have been busy with a capital B. Speaking of wedding plans, I have really enjoyed all of the sweet comments and emails from you all regarding our engagement. It makes me feel so blessed and grateful for all of the support we have in our lives. We have settled on a September wedding, and it will be full of DIY ideas and projects, which I will share here, of course.

Since Justin and I will mostly be paying for the wedding ourselves, we have limited our extra spending. Unfortunately, this means we have cut back on house projects etc. Luckily though, I have a large Home Depot gift card coming my way thanks to credit card reward points, so we will be tackling a bathroom makeover starting this weekend. I. cannot. wait. for. it. I have been literally going stir crazy without a project to work on.

This Spring, we will also be planning a landscape project for the front exterior. I am hoping to get some good ideas at the Kansas City Home Show and the Flower, Lawn & Garden Show next weekend.

And guess what....

I have two free tickets to give away to a lucky winner!

Here are the details on this huge event-
The original Kansas City Home Show and Flower, Lawn & Garden Show returns on March 22- 24 to Bartle Hall. Founded by the Home Builders Association of Kansas City, the Home Show has been a tradition for sixty five years. Bartle Hall will be teeming with hundreds of exhibitors to showcase new opportunities and choices for homeowners to get a jump on spring home and garden projects.
Headliner on the Spaces Stage will be Lonni Paul, HGTV Design Star Finalist and designer to celebrities. She is a contributor to the Style Network's Giuliana & Bill show and designed their Brentwood home. She also created an infant and children's furniture collection called PetitNest, that she co-created with actress Tiffani Amber Thiessen (yes, from Saved by the Bell and the original 90210). Lonni will present Celebrity Style Within Reach, a down-to-earth look at how homeowners can take ideas from celebrity design, incorporate them and not break the bank. Jennifer Bertrand, HGTV Design Star Winner, will emcee the Spaces Stage.
Sarah Susanka, architect and innovator, will be a featured speaker, presenting her powerful "Not So Big for Remodeling & Building New" message on the Spaces Stage. Sarah has authored nine best-selling books including The Not So Big House, The Not So Big Life, Not So Big Remodeling
