I'm considering this blog post my 'break' for the day. Aside from digging out some Christmas lights at some point today, I'm officially DONE with all I can do here at home for this wedding. Here's what I've got so far:

Mason Jars for drinking and for decorations. I have three different sizes, the ones pictured here are for drinking and then I also have smaller ones for candles and larger ones for flowers.

One baked and decorated wedding cake, all completely homemade. I had to make a 11 p.m. run to the store last night just for butter to make all the icing. I know it's not perfect, but I think it turned out great.

Wildflower bouquets
. This is a very low budget wedding, so I told my brother that I could probably put together some decent flower arrangements for free if I just took a country drive and picked wildflowers. So that's exactly what I did...I'm thinking I'll buy a bunch of daisies or something and throw in too to make it pop a little more.

This is apparently a saying from the Notebook, "If you're a bird, I'm a bird." I wouldn't know, I hate that movie, but my brother says that this is their 'thing' so I took the time to figure out a way to incorporate it. I hope they like it.

Now that all of this is finished, I've got a bazillion other things to do today, including laundry and tackling the two sink fulls of dishes that I've created while baking. It's suppose to be almost 90 today too, so I was really hoping to take a dip in the pool before getting a shower and getting ready for work at 5. We'll see how it all goes. Now I've got to decide whether to attempt to talk my boss into letting me off on Sunday, or just calling off. Yuck.

Happy Friday everyone!
