Boyf and I spent this past weekend in Virginia celebrating our engagement with my parents. When we got to my parent’s house, we were greeted with warm smiles and hugs and wine and balloons! My mom picked out this wine because of the label with the hand and the kiss – she said it reminded her of the pictures I had sent her of my hand and my new ring!
I also came home to a big package surprise! My mom and I had ordered 2 quilts from The Quilt Loft a while back, and they were here waiting for me when I got home this weekend! Yay! I had a Queen size quilt (42 patches) made up of all my shirts from my soccer tournaments over the years. I used to play travel soccer. My team won the State Championships most years. We even won the Regional’s and came in second at the National competition in Disney World, but that’s a story for another day!
I love my new soccer quilt!
It’s so beautiful and comfortable! I put together all the shirts I wanted on the quilt, numbered them and put them in the order I wanted them in. I also put notes on some shirts to include the front and the back. It turned out amazing!
I also got another Full size quilt (30 patches) made out of my sorority shirts. I got so many shirts in college, it’s nice to have them all on a quilt that I can remember all the fabulous times!
DELTA DELTA DELTA!! Woop Woop!
I am so excited about these quilts!
Check out The Quilt Loft! They do all sorts of fun stuff like this. The quality is amazing and for what I got, the price was pretty good too!
I also went home this weekend to try on my mom’s wedding gown. I wanted to potentially wear my mom’s dress on my big day! I was going to have the sleeves altered a bit, but I thought it would have been amazing to wear her dress.
Sadly, when my mom and I took the dress out of the box, even though she had paid good money to have the dress cleaned and preserved, they did not do a good job. The dress was all discolored and yellow with weird stains. I tried it on, and it fit, but there is nothing that can be done with that kind of color damage. Tear.
My mom tried it on too for shits and giggles! She still looked rocking in it! Work it mom!
Check out some of the discoloration. Tear. Keep in mind this dress was ‘preserved’ 31 years ago.
Double tear. I loved the neckline and subtle detail.
Oh well. I guess it wasn’t meant to be. How cool would it have been to wear my mom’s dress?!? I would have also loved not to deal with finding ‘the perfect dress,’ but I guess now I better start looking at what I like!
While we were trying on dresses, Jackson got himself stuck in the tub! Silly puppy! He can get himself in the tub but not out of it!
Stay tuned for another fabulous giveaway!!
