Wedding Dress Adventure!

The wedding dress shopping adventure was SO MUCH fun!

My girls and I had an appointment with Balla Saison in Austin, Texas. I was so nervous and scared all at the same time. I really had no idea what to expect.

As soon as we met Jessica, our bridal consultant, it was off to the races!  She gave us these huge rings with purple ribbon on them that we then go around and places on the hangers of the dresses. We found quite a few we liked and there was one that I wasn’t even all the way out of the dressing room before I was met with a chorus of ‘No’.

Unfortunately none of the dresses I was hoping to try on were in stock but Jessica tried her best to get me dresses that she thought I would like.  There was one dress she brought in that I was no sure about at all but since I had already told her I was willing to have an open mind, I tried it on.

I fell in love.  It is so not what I thought I was looking for but I love it!

Jessica put a veil on me but my girls took that off and put a large flower instead. Since we are looking at doing a spanish theme, that really completed the picture. So now I have to wait 6 – 8 weeks for my dress to come in and then we start with the measurements. In the meantime, I now have to find The Shoes to go with it.

Wish me luck!

Wordless Wednesday – Cupcake and Wine

Poor Sasha :(

Sasha’s eye has been bothering her and I wasn’t sure if it was allergies but once gunk started appearing, off to the vet she went.

Turns out she has some kind of infection so she must now wear the cone of shame.

The most heart-breaking/amusing time is right after we give her the eye drops.  She will run off into the corner and sit like this for hours.

Poor Sasha.  She has another Dr’s visit today so here is hoping we have some good news.

Crafty Monday – Part 1 of 2 Belt Commission

I have a commission list a mile long for some inkle belts so I will be posting these for some time now. 

This one is actually part 1 of 2. A squire in the SCA wanted his Knight’s colors within his own belt, so I warped that one up first.

I loved how the warped looked once it was done. I was really excited to weave this one and once I was done, I was so not disappointed. It is just gorgeous.

Part 2 will be the same colors however the green will be where the black is and the white where the red is with the red/black in the center. Unfortunately, I snapped the tension bar on my loom again so I am going to have to fix that (yet again) before I can get started.

Kitty Snuggles, Best Snuggles

Vincent and I have not had a lot of snuggle time as of late, life has just been pretty hectic. So when he found me lounging on the couch, he plopped right down and we just laid together for a few hours while I binged on Scandal episodes. 

Love my little buddy. :)

Crafty Monday – Blueberry Cream Porter

That right there, my dear readers, is a thing of beauty.

It also doesn’t capture just how many bottles there actually are. Once we were done bottling the porter, we had 28 bottles. Various sizes as we seem to have finally made enough booze to make empty bottles something of a rarity in this house. 

Apparently we need to start drinking more.

In a few weeks, this baby will be ready to pop and enjoy!  Finally alcohol percentage was roughly 4.7%. Not to shabby at all.
