A Little Mud on the Tires!!

Happy Anniversary to My Hubby!

Last week I got to post about my husbands anniversary gift to me...so this time I'll show you what I did for Charlies gift! No, nothing crafty this time since this year I'm in school but I did take him out for a day of Rubicon madness! For those of you who dont know what that is, it's 4-wheelin heaven for any guy!

Yesterday we woke up early, packed lunch and loaded up on sun block! Charlies been on wheels practically since he was born, having his first gocart at age 3! Hes had more cars than I can count on my fingers and TOES! So what else better for a gift than going wheelin with his buddies(and me too!)for the weekend!

This is Charlies best buddie Grant and his wife!

Here is what they call soup can. A very tough place to get through...

Charlie tries...

Happy Anniversary To Me!!

I'm so excited to be celebrating my 3 year anniversary! (June 16th) For this last year Charlie and I's life has been so crazy with me in beauty school. This year we talked about what we wanted to do to celebrate and we decided to keep it low key and simple. But when couples tell each other that, is it really so? (Of course not!!)

Well this year my hubby did good,real good!~ Let me tell you of his surprise!
So it was Saturday morning and we were headed out for the day and Charlie told me to go hide in the other room and not come out untill he was ready(do do do do do....5min later). He says ok come on out! What was it?! A beach cruiser! Not just any beach cruiser but (this is real special ladies) a vintage one that he found at a yard sale (for 5 dollars)on one of his dirt bike trips with his buddies.

He kept it hid for 2 months! While hidding it he took it apart put new parts on it that needed to be replaced while keeping its vintage charm, took it to a paint shop and had it custom painted baby pink with a pearl finish! It's gorgeous girls! I couldn't even believe it! I've always wanted one. We love the beach and so it was a perfect fit. So much for no gift right?

What To Do With Those Vintage Frames? DIY!

Lately I've had this accumulation of vintage frames. Pretty as they are alone I thought I would make a few into a jewlery holder. It was really easy to do!

What you will need:
Frame(any size)
Chicken Wire
Staple Gun
Needle Nose Plyers
Wire Cutters

First measure your frame to fit the chicken wire. Staple chicken wire to back of frame. Cut any extra chicken wire off. Hammer down any edges of chicken wire and your done! See that was easy :0) You can hang your gorgeous jewlery on it or even hang post cards or put your pictures in it. Happy Sunday!
