The before

What does this picture look like? 4 off-white men's shirts right?

Well in a few days these 4 shirts will turn into this.....

That's right this week I get the great task of making a Strait Jacket and hopefully have my first tutorial just in time for Halloween. So stay tuned and keep checking back if you want to see how this thing starts to take shape.

By the way, I am making this for a play I am costuming right now, not for JRP so don't worry!!

Snip Snip

12+ inches gone......

It's very short, I can tell its going to be very hard to get use to!!

And yes I did donate it to Locks of Love. Hopefully, some little girl one day will love to have my crazy messy hair!

Even though I think it's cliche.

I'm following the mass of brides and chopping my hair off!!

It's been driving me crazy! It is out of control!

No longer is it wavy and beautiful.

It's limp and lifeless and lame. I hate it!!!

So snip snip....

Here our a few options please vote on the poll




(yes, Katy I did vote on your poll that it was cliche, but now I understand and I'm sorry, I take it back!)

Nappy Birfweek!

I think I lied in my last post...

Halloween is in fact not my favorite Holiday that would have to be, hands down, my birthday! Even though its on a horrible day (9/11) , but we (aka I) have turned it into more of birthweek anyway!

My mom has always made a huge deal out of my birthday!! Being a cake decorators daughter I always got and still get the best birthday cakes ever and she normally throws a big party with great food and great people and it's awesome! This year was no different expect I now have an amazing husband that makes a huge deal out of it too!

To start out my birthweek My in-laws came in to town on Saturday and took JRP, I and My parents out to an amazing dinner!! Then, JRP took me out to dinner on Tuesday night to my favorite restaurant, The Olive Garden!

Then Friday night he cleaned our whole apartment (dishes, laundry, everything!) and cooked me a wonderful dinner! He even made a menu and got me roses, it was so sweet! And then at midnight he gave me all my presents! He got me a red reusable water bottle, a coat rack, and a big bag of york peppermint patties!!!

Then on Saturday morning he woke me up with breakfast in bed! Waffles and bacon! and a sweet sweet birthday card! Then we went down to the Chesapeake Boathouse and went Kayaking!!

Then we had a big party out at my parents house and my mom made me an amazing Marie Antoinette cake!! It was Perfect!!
You can see more pictures of my amazing Marie Cake(Notice I say Marie not Barbie because I'm not 8!! I did not have a Barbie cake!) on my Mom's Blog

It was truly a wonderful, amazing week!!

Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year for me! I LOVE halloween, but I'm a costume designer why wouldn't I right? But its more than that. Halloween is a HUGE deal in my family, it even trumps Christmas. Crazy to most of you, but awesome to me!!! Halloween holds so many happy memories for me and free candy what's better than that? (BTW you are never to old to trick or treat, JRP and I will be doing it this year of course!)

I'm so excited!! Its right around the corner!! I can almost smell the candy corn!!!

I'm itching to bust out the 11 boxes of halloween decorations and go crazy!!! (Thank you sister for loaning me your 10 boxes while you are in Japan, My measly 1 box was just not going to cut it this year!)

I'm sad we won't have a famous Staci and Daniel party!!! It's going to be a tough time of year without them here! Especially since JRP is a halloween hater!!!


P.S. As soon as October 1st rolls around you better believe I'll put pictures up of our decorations! This is what I pray it looks like.....

(Only in my dreams, JRP would never allow this)

I was also planning on finishing decorating our apartment this week, but I'm sick and lazy right now so hopefully soon!!

Did that really happen?

Being married is surreal....

Don't get me wrong it's awesome and I love every second of it, but it still doesn't feel real.

I look back at our pictures and think "did that really happen?" "Did I really get MARRIED?" "That's crazy!"

All the months of planning and hard work. It's just odd that the wedding is over. Odd and awesome! I loved planning a wedding, thats true what girl doesn't and I had my perfect wedding! Truly, it was perfect and everything I could have imagined!

But being married is a million times better!!! I get to fall asleep next to my best friend, I get to wake up next to him (which still sometimes scares me!) and I get to spend most of the day with him! It's wonderful, amazing, and fun!

I can't wait to see what life has in store for us!
