I'm a Busy BUSY Bee!! Craft show tomorrow!

Tomorrow is my first craft show!! And Sunday is the Bridal Shower. I have been running around like a crazy lady all day! I ordered cookies, got my nails done, bought a table and umbrella, cleaned my bathroom, bought food for the shower, went to the bank, packed up some stuff for the show, and organized. I still have to wash glasses, fill favor boxes and finish packing for the show! This last week Ive made 2 tiered cake plates (tutorial later?) and been trying to get in my hours for my internship-which is over next week! One week later I graduate :)
Ive been looking for a little bit of extra inspiration over at Hostess With the Mostess Blog. Here are some lovely inspiring shower pics i fou
If anyone is in the Nashville area-stop by the fair tomorrow and say hi! It's going to be next to Bongo Java East in 5 Points. Ill be sure to post lots of pics!

Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted

There are many people I have drifted away from, but one in particular comes to mind. This particular one, though, i drifted away from purposely. i still miss her and wish we were still best friends, but she got married a few years ago and seemed to completely change. I was in the wedding, and after, we only talked once more. i was very hurt by the way she acted in the time aruond the wedding. i was going through some very difficult things, and she actually had the nerve to get her sister in law to sit down with me and discuss the fact that "they didn't feel that their wedding was the most important thing on my mind". Seriously? My parents had just split up and i had a little brother, sister, and mother calling me telling me they missed our daddy. No-your wedding is NOT the most important thing on my mind.

I do miss her, but i felt that it would be best to end things. i need people around me who care about me!

So im throwing a bridal shower...

and im so busy and stressed ! the showers going to be the day after the craft fair! and i have other bridesmaids who are making me feel like my shower isnt going to be any good-from my choice of food to decorations, i dont seem to be able to please anyone, but i think it will be nice, so i am just kind of sad.
so far, we're having mini blt stuffed tomatoes, mini quiche, pasta salad, mini sandwiches, pita bites and spreads, veggies and fruit and cake. to drink we're having mojitos, sangria and white wine. Im also making little almond white chocolate lollipops and giving tiny boxes of candy as favors. I have candles and ribbon and a few paper lanterns in shades of blue and green (her colors), and prize bags with blue, green, pink and yellow on them. I found some awesome disposeable plastic square plates that look like real china! and napkins in blue and green.

Ive been looking for inspiration on the Hostess with the Mostess blog. Ive found so many pretty pics! here are some I'm using for inspiration:

All pics from the Hostess with the Mostess blog. Its awesome!!

Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.

I dont really think about one person in particular, just a group of them. i really hated a lot of kids in my elementary school-and i went to high school at the same place so i also hated them when we got older too lol. lots of people said some mean things and made me very self conscious. im so glad to be away from that environment! i really dont spend any time thinking about it anymore, and its not worth my time. it was just the result of being around people who feel they were entitled to everything and thought they were better than everyone else. It really doesnt matter to me anymore and i dont put myself in those situations anymore :)
