    [QUOTE]I'm having trouble getting them to not float to the top. I tried threading a string through each flower and then tried tying the string to a marble but it wouldn't stay tied.

    are you leaving the stems on?  if so, you can get 'frogs' at any craft store, it's a heavy metal circle with pins sticking up, you put the stems into the pins and then you can cover the frog with rocks, marbles, whatever

  • Hi everyone!

    Congrats on reaching silver, docta!

    I got home, need to fold laundry and make dinner, then hang out on TK!  H is working until midnight tonight, so I get some me time.  :)
  • I had waffles for dinner but I'm still hungry and am craving a baked potato. But that means I have to run to the store to buy potatoes since DH is sleeping since he has to work the night shift tonight. That means I have to get off the couch and get dressed since I'm not willing to go to the store in pjs.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I'm still a year out so I'm just playing around today but I will definitely try wire. I'm using these white flowers that I "borrowed" from my apartment complex's bushes that are right outside our porch. I'm not sure what kind they are.

    I need to start posting more. I'm jealous of the bling.

  • Very nice Beachy.

  • DNB, its gorgeous!

    Veggie - yours is pretty too.
  • I haven't fully decided if I'm going to do it or not yet. I haven't left the house since Friday so I really should get out and do something. I do have 2 doctors appointments tomorrow so that will be quite a bit and will wear me out.

    I would get the actual type of flowers you want to use, because different flowers float differently.

    [QUOTE]New bling!  And I reached my goal (silver before the wedding) with more than two weeks to spare.  I don't know if I should be happy or feel pathetic, lol.

  • Beachy's hubby for the win!

  • As it's been well reported DH is leaving for Phoenix tomorrow for 3 days/2 night.  Of which 2 are full travel days (as in leaving at 7am and getting to his destination after 8pm).   

    I'm dying of laughter at his suitcase.  It's so large, like the biggest bag we own.    I mean he has to check a bag because of the knives, but still.

    Funny thing is 10 hours after he arrives back home we leave for Dallas for 4 days/3 nights.   His is only taking a carry-on.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated. 
  • Hey it took me until 1.5 years after my wedding to get to silver. I have been a member forever it seems like but didn't start posting until 2008 when DH and I got engaged. So it took me 3 years.

  • Mixtape, I love that dress. Almost as one as I love that one that was in your sig a while ago. I'm going to come to Canada and raid your closet.

    [QUOTE]LOVE the dress, Mixtape!  I've been trying to find some dresses to wear to my shower, rehearsal dinner, and honeymoon. Where is yours from?
    Posted by bree4305[/QUOTE]

    <div>My Mom got it from The Bay, actually!! I never really shop there, but this dress is so perfect!</div>
  • Okay, I'm off to go write "ditto PPs" on every post. BRB 
  • Gorgeous bling DNB! And very cute dress mixtape :)

    I'm a little irked right now. I got a call back from the dealer and we are pre-approved for financing, which is good, but we need to provide a few things, namely proof of income. Ok fine and dandy right? Well they want a paystub, and when I told J after I talked to the dealer, apparently he has been THROWING AWAY his paystubs recently, so we have none to prove he's worked there recently. Gah. I'm hoping old paystubs will work combined with last years W2.

    <div>Anna, if you come to Canada you can borrow my clothes anytime, haha! I personally don't think I'm a good dresser... Except when it comes to dresses. I have a whole ton of dresses, and I can sniff out a cute dress from miles away. It's a skill.</div>
