Rants and Raves

Today my raves will be all about Martha Stewart and some delights that I found this morning on MS:

Rant: MS is perfection. Although I will try and try and try to come up with something close to a MS creation, it will never be as good. I am setting myself up for disappointment.
Rave: It's almost Halloween! This is my favorite time of the year because:

  • Its during fall when the leaves are changing and everyone is bundled up in sweatshirts next to fire pits sharing a nice bottle (or 2...) of wine
  • My anniversary with C is on Halloween itself!
  • Weekends are filled with getting spooked at Haunted Houses and carving charming pumpkins like the one below:
Rant: I will be out of town all of next week and next weekend so I won't be at home to enjoy my carved pumpkin at night. Sad.
Rave: Forget the idea of a candy bar at my wedding reception...that was so a month ago. My new favorite concept is to have a cookie bar! I personally love the big cookies like the one's from the Cookie Cottage in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Yum.

Rant: Now starts the 3 month stretch of decorating for the holidays. Come December-ish, my storage closet will start to overflow after I buy the entire section of cute Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas decorations from Target.

Rave: I have been in love with this way to display escort cards since the early days of my "pre-planning" process. My vision/concept is to change the background fabric to navy blue, add in blue and white ribbons to hold the escort cards, and include various widths of my white nylon rope to tie in the "tying the knot" theme.
