Wedding rehersal favors & decor

2 1/2 years ago Lisa's son was married to a sweet girl. 
His studies in college were 
Wildlife and Fisheries 
or is it 
Fisheries and Wildlife..hmmm. 
Well, anyway, since that was his interest Lisa decided to take the fishing theme 
into the Rehearsal supper. 

After Rehearsal we headed off to the Riverboat for supper and a fabulous boat ride on the Missouri River.   

  The favors were assorted goldfish crackers packaged in clear bags with a sweet tag that said "Look what fishing brings....
kissing gouramis" 
and "There's alot of fish in the sea...but there was only one for Anthony" and "He caught the most beautiful fish in the sea...and the rest is history".
Here are the silverware all wrapped up and personalized with a sweet little tag.  

And of course plates and cups to match...the 'm' for Miller.

Top 10 Favorite Garlands

Top 10 favorite
I have found from other party girls. 

Now...let me explain a little something. 
I've had most of these pictures in my 
GARLAND file for some time and 
did I remember to note where I found these 
sweet amazing garlands?? {except for a few}
kinda regretting that now.  
So...just want you all to know - these are not our pictures.  
We may have copied these at a party or two...but we can't take credit for these garlands today. can still enjoy them, we do.

 I've actually been making some of these and starting to offer them for sale!

Yes...I know, that's 11. 
 Just couldn't help it! :)

Pinterest has our attention

Here's a peak at our
Pinterest boards. 
Ok, so Lisa gets alittle crazy. 
Amy not as much! ☺
But can't say there are no ideas. 
we have a board for things we have actually completed from our Pinterest inspiration so that's pretty good.

 so....follow if you want, we'd LOVE to have ya! 
We promise to keep adding 
{Lisa alittle more than Amy}. 

Update: Just read an interesting article about Pinterest here
I shall be more careful when pinning and  blogging info from Pinterest from now on.

My chalkboard wall

 It finally happened!  
A wall full of quotes!  
I'm so happy!   
I started out with just painting black chalboard paint over what was a burgundy colored wall. 
Let it dry really well and starting collecting some favorite quotes 
{this is merely a handful of the MANY I have}. 
Amy was home last weekend and she went to work on writing them for me.  
I could have done it myself, but her writing is so much more creative and fun than mine. 
My inspiration came from pinterest and the wall I saw t here had one quote/writing over the entire wall. 
I loved it, but there was no way I could even think of settling on one thing to say.  
It was hard enough to narrow it down to these.  
And no, the wall is not quite complete...there's room for a few more, {yippy skippy}
we just ran out of time getting them up there.  
I'm not sure if I should seal the wall off as the chalk smears very easily. 
Anyone know if there is something I could/should use to finish this? 
Or maybe I will just let it smear and redo with new quotes every so often. :) 

and yes, I apologize for the blurry, glared pictures...not my talent to take pics!!


 My favorite life verse!!! 
SO much meaning in the one little verse!  BIG story behind it.
