So last year, we used a Martha template and made our own spin on the "finger in the box" invite. Here's our version!!! And a couple other pics from last year's party.
In other news, my friend Vanessa (for whom I hosted the shower I blogged about) gave birth to a healthy 7.5lb, 20'' baby boy named Elijah Emlen yesterday at 3:30 PM. He is a doll! I am so proud of her and her new little family. Keep them in your prayers ladies!
We used Tanner's hand as a mold. And yes, we burnt the edges on like 16 different invitations :)
"Just A Reminder"
I don't know how well you can see them, but I wore those "Wild Eyes" contacts that are totally white. It was really scary! But very very cool.
I got to rent a costume from the local theater. I don't really know what I was but I dubbed it the "dead queen."
Here's a few random pictures from our party:
We're going to host one again this year, although it will be more of a joint effort. We are toying with the idea of doing dessert/bonfire over at a friends house. That should be fun. Any of you who are near northwestern Montana -- feel free to come on by! :)
I still haven't decided on invitations for this year, but I'm thinking about getting some smaller white pumpkins, carving a simple Jack-O-Lantern face, and then sticking a note to it and leaving them lit on people's doorsteps who live in town. Cool idea? It would be a lot of work but wouldn't that be fun to get??? Hey, at least its not a flaming bag of poo :D
I MADE HOMEMADE PIZZA LAST NIGHT!!!!
It was a TOTAL success. I even took pictures of it. haha. I'm such a dork.
Here's what was on it:
- Artichoke hearts
- Lots n' LOTS of garlic
- Plum Tomatoes
- Red onion
- Olive Oil
- Rosemary and basil
- Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Feta cheese
- Alfredo sauce (just a little bit)
- We used 2 different crusts to see which was better; a precooked boboli (total crap) and then the roll out kind in a can (HEAVEN IN A CIRCLE)
I think I might make another one tonight!!!
