Where oh where has this blogger been?

I know I have been MIA for awhile but a lot has been going on and this had to be put on the back burner. I have been stamping this whole week and I am almost fully caught up and I think I am even almost ahead......

So to answer the question about where I have been I will start at the beginning and because the answer is kinda long it will be a series of posts.
It all started January 4th when my Maid-of-Honor and I attended the Sonoma Bridal Show. My wedding was planned for October so this was just to see what was available. We visited the booths and saw the giveaways they had and just enjoyed the things we saw. Their grand prize game was coming up and they were drawing names after names and no one was there to play the grand prize game. Sarcastically the emcee asked if anyone had a Hawaiian dollar. I thought well Hawaii is United states so I pulled out a regular dollar and that is what got me in the grand prize game. I guess it pays to know things.
It was between me and two other girls. they rolled out this beautiful wedding cake and then proceeded to tell us there were 3 coins baked into the cake. A Quarter, a Nickel, and a Penny. The person who found the largest value coin won the grand prize.
The picture above is us digging through the cake. we had it everywhere!!!!

The picture above is me holding the quarter. Yup, I won the grand prize. I won my ceremony and reception location at the beautiful Kenwood Farms and Gardens. I won the photography and the DJ as well. the only catch is the wedding had to be May 10th (mothers day) as this was my dream wedding and was only going to cost us a fraction of the price, how could i turn it down....of course I now had 4 and a half months to plan the big day.

I have more pictures to show of the events leading up to the wedding as well as the wedding. I will split them up and show you some new projects I have been working on.

If any of you are going to be around this weekend make sure to visit Pam's blog for the firecracker blog hop. due to the hectic going on's i am not participating this month but beware cause I am back! I have so many goodies to share with you!!!
