Paper Source Ideas

Last weekend we were at Paper Source and I found some great ideas for card making and wrapping gifts.

The flower looked like it was made with tissue paper

Loved the dots and how simple and clean the packaging looks

I just thought this was so cute

I love the inside lining of the envelope 

Love the window decoration

Angel Baseball Adventure

The past couple of days the Angels Baseball team has been playing in Seattle, which is about three hours away from us. So, Sunday morning M woke up and said, "So we can get Angel tickets for like $15.00" I asked him, "Did you want to go to the game?" So, we decided to get ready in 20 minutes and hit the road.  We had a fun day and the Angels won again!

Go Pujols!! 

Angels Win!!

DIY Anniversary

Last week I worked on a few projects to celebrate our anniversary. 

I made M this card

I got this idea from Pinterest:

 I cut out maps of where we met, were we went on our honeymoon and where we live now.
On each map, I put a heart sticker on the place where we stayed, and put black stickers on the places we traveled to in each of those areas. 

Lyrics to our first dance song:
We danced to Keith Urban, Making Memories of Us. I cannot wait to hang this in our next place.

M and I love steak, so last weekend we barbecued a few steaks. It has been really nice here the last few weeks, so we have been using our grill.

Birch Box May

Gossip Girl Birch Box. I do not watch Gossip Girl anymore, but I was interested in what products Birch Box would send

I love love this product. And they sent a full size.

I love trying new lotions, but this one smells a little funny.

I do not have a need for this product, but I am saving it for someone that may want it.

Smells nice. 

They gave out a note card to give to someone.

I was not really impressed with this box, but it is always fun seeing what you get.

Target Beauty Bag

Target about a month and half ago, had a promotion for free beauty bags. In each bag were five samples and coupons for those products. Mine came in the mail a few weeks ago and here is a little sneak peek...

I love this little bag, I use it in my purse, to keep all my little things in one place.

I loved the Simple Make-up wipes and actually used the coupon to get more. I put the Nivea Lotion in my purse. It was a great bag full of fun little samples. Thank you Target!

Cowboy Cupcakes

It was M's best friend's birthday last Tuesday, so M and I decided to make cupcakes for him and bring them to work for him (M and him work together).

He loves football.

He actually loves the Cowboys.

So, we made Cowboy Cupcakes for him.

And added a few sprinkles.

First Wedding Anniversary

I cannot believe it has already been a year since M and I said, "I do." Yesterday we had a really fun day! We went to lunch and then headed to the Japanese Gardens ( I have been wanted to go for awhile). After the gardens M took me shopping! We went into a few store until I found the perfect green dress and necklace ( I also got two sparkly hair bands!). Then went to Ring Side Restaurant and had the most perfect steaks ever! They were amazing, each bite just melted into your mouth. I cannot wait for our left overs tonight! After dinner we decided to go to a movie and we The Avengers, it was actually quite good. I do enjoy action movies, I cannot wait for Batman. Our day was really fun and it was fun talk about the last year and how much out lives will be changing in the next few months.


York Steak and Garlic Mash Potatoes 
                                                       Look at that piece. So good.

Movie Time!
