It's the weekend

This weekend has been just what we've needed. It started off a little rocky with our neighbours making a racket nextdoor drilling through the internal wall for 3 hours but we managed to get through it!!

The husband spent most of Saturday doing some more Army training before he heads to Kapooka next month and I managed to use that time to get things done around the house so we could enjoy the rest of our time doing fun stuff like playing board games, watching movies and spending time with the kitties.

And just in case you were wondering, I totally kicked butt at Blokus!!

wedding wednesday ::ribbon wands::

Ever since seeing the below photo on Style Me Pretty, I had an obsession with ribbon wands...

Lucky for me, Jordan agreed that they would 'add value' to our wedding (this became a common question when I was proposing diy projects before the big day!!)

We found some wonderful bamboo sticks that we cut to size and spray painted a glossy white. We'd cut lime green and hot pink satin ribbon and attached it with hot glue, holding it all in place with a bulldog clip until it dried and slowly built up our collection.

 





The ribbon wands were a huge hit on the day and we loved seeing them all waving high in the air as we walked back down the aisle and again when we had group photos with our guests! Even though this was a small detail in the grand scheme of things, it made a big impact on the day and is something that is still talked about by our guests!

And now my favourite photo from the day, so much so that I have it on my desk at work, it's absolutely beautiful!
