my creative side

This weekend was spent indoors! It snowed in Texas and it is freezing outside. But don't you worry because the temperature will be back in the 60's tomorrow. Oh Texas, how I hate your bipolar weather.. So after a very busy day at the salon on Saturday I was able to come home and relax.. After about an hour of relaxing, I got bored! So I called my best girlfriend up and we headed for Hobby Lobby. A girl's wonderland!
We let our crafty sides get the best of us and it was so much fun. I literally did not take one picture. Fail. But I can show you the finished masterpiece! :)
My cute hubby helped screw the letters together.

don't worry, my wedding ring is always this sparkly, HA! I wish!

I was so proud of my craft that I texted my mother in law.
(because she's one crafty lady!)

I sent her a picture and this is our conversation:

Me: I did a craft! Proud?
MIL: Beautiful!!!! Yeah. I love it! Very proud :)
Is it on Dave's desk :)
Me: Haha nope it is in the living room.
MIL: More appreciated that way

Inside joke, don't ask!
Anyways the rest of the weekend was spent drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows, eating hot pink cupcakes and french toast, and watching movies. Lots of movies! Have you ever seen Real Steel? Good movie but very predictable!

We went a little overboard with the powdered sugar :)

Want to know a secret on how to make homemade syrup?

1 part sugar
1 part water
add a pinch of mapeline
bring it to a boil but DO NOT let it boil over! It will ruin your glass stove top.

SO yummy!

    I'm so sad you don't live in st george anymore! Not only so we could be BFF's, but I needed a hairstylist to cut my bangs so badly yesterday. But this morning I finally got the courage and did it my self. I think I did a pretty good job! :D I had watched youtube to learn HOW to do it first. :)
