And while I am talking about Auburn and old friends - I just decided to look through old photos...Will and I are a month and a half away from our one year wedding anniversary and we just celebrated our five years of being a couple. Our best friends, Kerns and Chris, will be married TWO years this June. Time flies, but it is fun to look back, laugh, and occasionally remember things that make you want to cry.
PANDA...need I say more?
Fall Formal Junior Year...remember the blonde?
Will turns 21.
Fall Senior Year at Auburn
I think this week I am going to dig out old LHS photos and scan them on the computer. How fun would it be to look back to from 1999-2003 to bring back REALLY old memories. Life goes fast...

I wrapped my headband in gross grain ribbon, but you wouldn't have to do that. Then I hot glued my flower to it and added a circle to the back.

Once it was dry I decided I wanted to add a burlap edge (kind of like a mat).
I used an old frame we had lying around, so eventually I may buy a new frame and spruce it up a little. I'd like to get a frame with a little more, um, personality.
I'm trying to decide where to put it on our new shelves...until we get more things for the shelves, I may not be able to get it to look just how I want.
So...what is your hair aspiration?

For lunch today, while the snow was falling (it was so pretty), I made a time old classic for lunch - grilled cheese. Why did I ever stop eating these. They are so good!
Yesterday I started working on some "SPRING" blocks. I purchased some culled lumber - lumber that is 85% off at Home Depot because it is "damaged" - and had the Home Depot worker cut it for me. It was just a 2 x 4 and he cut it into 6 blocks for me. Three blocks at 5 inches and 3 at 6 inches. I picked Avocado Green craft paint to paint the blocks as my base.
Then I used different scrapbook papers to put a background on the front of each block. I used an Exacto knife to cut the letters out. Lastly, I Modge Podged it all on to make them stick. I just realized that my "S" block is upside down in these photos! WHOOPS! I am thinking of adding some ribbon and buttons to give it an even cuter finished look. I can't wait to make other blocks for different seasons. I am going to do one for Auburn Football - can't wait for football season again. I think I will also do one for the 4th of July and the possibilities for Christmas are endless..
I decided to make a red H to put on one of the shelves. I just bought a paper mache H from JoAnn's Fabric for $3.99. I painted it a chocolate brown color and then went over it with a true red. Once it was dry I sanded the edges to give it a little bit of a distressed look and then rubbed this Distress Ink all over the edges.
Here is a shot of one of my favorite new accessories in our living room - our metal jack!

Sam also loves to play on the chair...sometimes he scares us if he chomps at our faces! He is just playing though!
