Sweet Euphoria ~ Fall Cake

Look at this CAKE people!! 

This cake is delectable birthday present from my wonderful sis-in-law Erin, at SWEET EUPHORIA DESSERTS!  She is one amazing bakist!  Think i just made up a word.  Talk about falling in love with Fall!  Look at those leaves, and topped with the elegant "P" in all of its glory.  Not only is it aesthetically pleasing but what lies beneath the stunning facade is a spice cake with some super sugary cinnamon frosting that will knock your socks off!  Well done my firend, well done!  Check her out on facebook or on tumblr. She also recently did a Chevy Avalance that is a must see!

Makeover Monday

For this weeks makeover a few dollar store items in order to be festive since Fall has officially fallen and last years fall decorations are no more no thanks to the crazy 100 year Nashville Flood, RIP.

For starters I got some chinsey looking foam pumpkins, gourds, white plates, fake leaves, foam circle and candle sticks.  Glued them all together and spray-painted them white.  And vwella!!!  Fall decorations have exploded upon my mantle, and I love it!!  

Foam pumpkin spray-painted white and glued to a glass candle stick will make a nice fall festive display in my opinion :)
And here we have the start of a cake stand that will display some gourds and pumpkins!

And now a close up of my fav, the pumpkin pedastal:

And there you have it all in action!  I'm loving it!  If the pictures don't suffice enough as tutorials feel free to email me :)

(if you notice the cake stand and plate have labels on the, this idea is courtesy The DIY Show off here!  She is simply amazing)

Beachy Keen

Our labor day in NJ/Philly was such a delight :) Here our picutures from the day at the Jersey Shore! Sooo not like the TV show, promise! And just because we lived there for a stint does not mean we know any of the Jersey Shore characters!

Toes in the sand :)
My family of 3
Jersey Family at the Shore, love them!

Lead Me

My new favorite song for the day by Sanctus Real - “Lead Me”. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! It depicts the husband's role as the spiritual leader of the house. Just plain love everything about the song. Reminds me of my UUHH-mazing husband and how he does such a remarkable job being a spiritual leader for me, Wyndham and our house as a whole. Think I will keep him :) Enjoy the lyrics!

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling
But on the inside, I can hear her saying...

“Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone”

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They're just children from the outside
I'm working hard, I tell myself they'll be fine
They're in independent
But on the inside, I can hear them saying...

“Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone”

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I'm called to be
Oh, Father, show me the way
To lead them
Won't You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can't
Don't want to leave them hungry for love,
Chasing things that I could give up

I'll show them I'm willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Photoshop Crop Fun

So I'm pretty quick with the hands on crafts but not quite as savvy with the computer end of things : /  But today I decided to try some Photoshop experiments.  Here's the fruit of my labor :)

Nashville Flood Claims Another Victim

In the aftermath of the massive Nashville Flood, I come to find that my Fall Decorations is one of the many casualities attained in this catastrophe.  And granted people lost their house, cars, lifes, precious belongings that held sweet memories, but MY FALL DECORATIONS PEOPLE.  For people who know me and my loves, this is serious.  Not only to I love decorations but of all seasons I'm in true seasonal love with Fall!  But all joking aside, I can make more decorations and in the grand scheme of things not nearly as bad as loosing a house or pictures or other items of that nature.  But seriously boo for the flood that claimed my Fall Decorations :(  RIP, you shall be missed......

here is a site for those interested of some of the true damage and aftermath:

4 reasons I love my husband :)


Hubby's Birthday :)

For Ryan's 27th birthday I wanted to make a big To Do, but of coarse he wanted the low key route, and dinner date with yours truly!  So we got a sitter, the dime piece duo of Jared and Bethany, and off to Samuria for some amazing sushi~~ best in Nashvetgas!

Umm... do you think a couple of flyers were stapled here once or twice??? this graced our presence as we stepped out of the car by Samurai!
us <3
Rolly Polly!  Vandy roll on the left, fruity tutie something or another on the righty, scrumptious!!
Ry's spicy Smörgåsbord board :)
My hand made feathered headpiece I thought appropriate to don for this special occasion!
3 of my favs, tortoise shell/white shades~scripts b/c i'm now blind as a bat, white ringy clutch and Sushi sticks :)
Then finished the night off with some sweetnesss!!
And I have to show off the funny card I made for Ry out of some construction paper!  Thought what could be a better gift than some sassy lingerie teheee!  Made this fun craft in less then 15 min!  Top and bottom match perfectly and then you write in the middle.  Loves it!!
