DIY: Diaper Bassinet & Gift Basket

This is not my typical post on here, but since it was DIY and I am super proud of it. Here it is! This is a gift basket I was putting together for the shower we are throwing for my boss. I bought a pack of diapers with an idea just to bundle them all up and tie them in a cute bow. Then I saw some cute things online of diaper creations. So I decided to take a stab at it.

With alot of frustration at first on how to construct the top of the bassinet. With the help of Mike and his carpenter skills I was able to make it! Check it out! What do you think? My first diaper anything!


My inspiration....I wish I can make cute bows like this.
Okay here is my creation!! I need to still add the wheels
I thought the bib add a cute touch to it.  I am pretty excited how it turned out!

Celebrity Wedding: Chelsea Clinton & Mark Mezvinsky

From all the summer weddings this year. By far this was one my favorites. The main reason is because the beautiful transformation of Chelsea Clinton. We all remember her in the 90s as being the biggest fashionista. Well I have to say her wedding to Mark must have brought the class and elegance out of her. I wished there were more photos available to see the details of the actual reception, but I am pretty excited about her ceremony photos that came available.

I practically had tears in my eyes when I saw this photo of her and former President Clinton walking his little girl down the aisle. It never fails for me to cry at this part of the wedding  and the Father daughter dance. This is also when I fell in love with her GORGEOUS Vera Wang gown It was just breathtaking! Fitting her body so well!
I love the elegant flow of the strapless silk organza dress. 
Not gawdy at all!! Done with a touch of class.
They look so happy....especially Chelsea! Such a great and genuine shot!
You notice simple j…

1st & Last Garage Sale!

So I had the "ingenious" idea to host a garage sale at our home. I really think it was my pregnant brain who thought this idea up because the normal me would have not even consider it.

What prompted this thought was....the room where we will have the nursery was full of Mike's grandmother's furniture. We were going to move it all out to a storage area in the back, but we knew once it got back there it would never been seen or get any use out of it. So the thought of a garage sale popped into my mind. It would help us from moving it to storage. So thought also was I had some stuff to sell from college and I also had asked the rest of the family if they had stuff to sell and they did. So why not a garage sale? It only made sense. ha ha! Some great idea at the time right? I kept telling myself it was to clear out the room, but boooooooooy I had no idea how much work went into putting a garage sale together and then working one.

Thank goodness my mother in law, sister …
