Everything in Its Place

There are times in my life when I misplace things, forget things, and sometimes completely lose things. This happens more than it should. One item that I never want to misplace, forget, or completely lose is my wedding ring. I usually take it off at night when I sleep, but I don't always put it in the same place. This leads to heart attacks in the morning when I seem to have misplaced my ring. I saw this great idea on Pinterest that is the perfect solution to my problem. I decided to be crafty and make one of my own.

What you need:

  • Frame
  • Scrapebook paper or fabric
  • Hook (I used a button)
  • Glue gun

I planned on getting a cheap frame from DI or Goodwill but I found this gem at Hobby Lobby and couldn't pass it up. The scrapbook paper was cheap and HL has every option in the world. The hook was the hardest thing to find. I could not find ANYTHING that didn't have to be screwed in. I found the button and decided it was much cuter anyway! 

This little project was so easy I don't even need to provide steps... but I will just in case :)

1) Cut the paper to the right size and put it in the frame. I got a nice little surprise here when the glass in my frame was permanently attached. I just put the paper behind the glass and decided I would glue the button directly on the glass.

2) Warm the hot glue gun. Glue the button/hook on the frame with enough space for the ring to hang down. 

3) Wait for it to dry and hang your ring. Easy!

Here's how it turned out. I love it!

The Horse Whisperer

If you know me than it is an absolute given that you know Marci Stucki. This girl and I have pretty much been attached at the hip since we were 15........  She literally got me through college. Not to mention High School. She was my replacement Mom while we were away from home. Always keeping me on the right track. She is one of the sweetest most kind hearted people that I know. I have never heard anyone say a bad thing about her. Also, she has pretty much won every horse show she has ever entered. Talk about talent.....I love her with all of my heart and I want to wish her a

The past 8 days we have been in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico! We got this trip as a wedding gift over a year ago. You can imagine how excited we were after waiting a year for it. First off, we would like to give a HUGE thanks to the Tatz family for the trip. We had an amazing time and we REALLY appreciate it!!

Our resort was not in the main city of Cabo San Lucas. This was actually pretty nice because we had the option to go to the city and experience it all, but we also got to come back to our nice quiet resort. Our resort wasn't all inclusive which gave us the opportunity to venture out into the city and try all of the local food. It was all so yummy and pretty cheap too! We also went kayaking, snorkeling, zip lining, rock climbing, repelling, and relaxed at the resort. Here's a little photo montage of the trip: 

**Keep in mind we forgot a camera... oops. These all came from our phones. 


We'll never forget this trip!
