A Beautiful Day, Beautiful Party, and a Shower Curtain.... :)

It's been a long morning already. Matthew fought me on going to preschool this morning. Normally, if he can justify to me his reasonings, I listen. However this morning after several failed attempts to convince me why he shouldn't go to school he says:
"Mommy, see that sunshine outside?"
Me: "Yes"
Him, "It would be such a shame to waste a beautiful day inside."
Seriously, he said that. He's 4. Wonder where he's heard that :)
My response: "PUT on YOUR clothes. You are going to school."
And that was that.
Oh- did I mention today is my 5th Anniversary.
We laugh. For all the things we (and our family) have been through in 5+ years, it seems more like 50. But looking at us at 5 years, we are stronger than the majority of those we know. The whole for better or worse part of the ceremony hits home :)
Love you Dust!! Seems like yesterday we were in the Venetian in Vegas getting ready to say I do. I wore a short dress (NEVER did I think I would be a southern girl who did that, but when you plan for a Vegas wedding, it just felt right!) and some FAB shoes that I stil have and have searched for another reason to wear :)

Okay- for the real reason you actually read my blog :) The crafty bit :
I was asked by a client to design a party for her twin girls that centered around the colors in a shower curtain, zebras, and monkeys. Yep.
Well, here is the finished product! These girls will be celebrating their party tomorrow with all there favorites and this decor :) Can't wait to see the party pics!
