I started 2010 off with short blonde hair and am waving it goodbye with long black hair. That just goes to show how different things get in one year's time. I can't believe it's already a new year! This year has been so good and at times so bad but I am thankful for everything that happened. I was looking back at all the pictures from this year and I am amazed how much I have grown, my family has grown, the puppies have grown, mine and Brian's relationship has grown. Anyway, I love making lists so here are some goals of mine for the new year!
1. Take more pictures (digital, film, polaroid)
2. have a more stable routine for the week
3. travel + roadtrips
4. keep sewing and learn more about it
5. get to the GYM (of course, isn't this always on everyone's list?)
6. plan our wedding<333
7. make new friends
I'd love to read your new years goals! Do you usually stick to them? Have you been looking back at pictures too and reliving memories? Hope you all have good new year's eve's! Any traditions?

Babooska botique is having a sale right now for the holidays..and they have so many pretty colors!
Elsie always has the cutest style!
After seeing these beauties, I HAD to figure out how to make one for myself. I figured it would be a fun projects for a sunday evening. I came across this wonderful video tutorial on burda style. Thought I'd share. Enjoy! <3
As far as my dress, I am in love with EVERYTHING Ms. Sarah Seven creates. These are a few of my absolute favorites:
I also just discovered Ivy and Aster<3 There are so many pretty pretty things! It's so hard to choose! All of these breath taking dresses are all so insanely affordable too!
What do you gals think? I know one of these amazing designers will be making my dress...I wish I could wear them all at once! haha! I find myself being more attracted to the shorter wedding dresses..What are your thoughts on wedding dress length? What kind of dresses have you girls worn or plan on wearing?

Later today we are going to my family's house and we are having another feast and end the evening with white russians and drunken fun! I adore my family and can't wait for our time with them. My family is crazy and fun and I can truely be myself with them and it's something I have realized not a lot of people have..so with that I am thankful for my family today! I am baking a pumpkin pie as we speak and it is my first time doing that! I hope everyone loves it. My two aunts, Tina and Gina, just moved back from Washington (I think I mentioned that in the last post..) and it just really feels more like the holidays with them back home.
I'd love to hear what you all are doing today..What are all of your traditions? I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving full of love! I will post some pictures later of all the festivities! XO
ps. I had a dream that I was getting matching back tattoos with my aunts and now I want a new tattoo (not on my back, I was thinking another knuckle one)! haha...silly dreams...

It's been a long week for me. I am waking up early for my sewing class and then going to a hockey game tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to bundling up with my love and watching men make skating on ice look easy.

Tomorrow I am meeting a friend for the first time. I am a little nervous but excited. Marisa is my old pal Dani’s fiance. We have been text/online friends for a few months now, she is so sweet and genuine. I need more good people in my life. So this will be cool.
Well, I am off to make my friend Shannon some cute baby things ( a hoodie with bear ears and a cute design on a onesie). Who knew I would be this excited over baby stuff!
