We're Engaged!!

Ok, I'm gushing. I can't help it. I haven't been posting lately because something wonderful and exciting has happened - I got engaged!

Joe and I have been together for almost four years. We met when I was in college and our relationship has grown tenfold in the time we have been together. He is my best friend, my confidant, my superman, and my rock. He is my coach, my bug- smasher, my muscles, and my motivation to remember that life should be LIVED. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I could not be more proud to spend the rest of my life with him.

Thank you for celebrating with us. I cannot wait to unleash the BILLIONS of wedding DIY projects that will be coming in the future. I hope you will join me on this exciting journey!

Beer Bottle Lights

One of Joe’s favorite new beers comes in the best bottles and I had to do something with them. I love the idea of using bottles for light fixtures and chandeliers. I can’t change the light fixtures in my apartment, but I did come up with another way to use these bottles.
We have more Christmas lights than we should (we got a bit over-zealous the last few years around the holidays), so I dug up a strand and took some time stuffing them into these bottles. It worked perfectly! The bottles look like they’re filled with fireflies – seriously makes me think of summer. If I had a place to hang them I could tape the tops to secure the bottles to the light strand and hang them like string lights. I really hope someone does that haha.

I took the labels off, but learn from me and do it first. It was a pain doing it after putting the lights in. The price I pay for changing my mind!
