DIY - Girls Night Out

January is the start a many things...a New Year, a new resolution, a new attitude, and my newest favorite - New Wedding Shows!

This coming weekend there are 2 big Wedding Expo's in my area so I have invited my Bridesmaids on a Girls Weekend! Wedding Expo by day, Downtown Get Down by Night!

I wanted to Thank them in a way more than just making a card or giving a verbal Thank you for the girls taking the time out of their busy schedule to give me an entire weekend of their time - so I have put together a "Girls Weekend Survival Kit"!

Here's the Breakdown:

I have been looking for Buttons for us to wear while at the Bridal Shows but I just couldn't find any that appealed to me - they, in one word were, BORING! So I decided to go to my local craft store - get some Button Kits & Make my own, here's what I came up with:

Hangover Kits:
Due in large part that we are getting a hotel room downtown for Saturday Night and plan on going out and having a good time with just the girls, I thought a Hangover kit would be the perfect addition to this Girls Weekend Survival Kit!
Kit Includes:
1 pack of Saltine Crackers
2 Hello Kitty Bandaides
1 Lip Smackers
1 Tang Electrolite Drink Mix
1 pkg of Chewable Pepto
1 pkg of Extra Strength Tylenol
1 Hair Tye
1 Make Up Remover Wipe
1 Small pack of Gum
1 Pkg of Drinkin' Mate - Hangover Medicine
(All items were purchased at <- Love this site!)

First Picture shows what is in each kit, the Second Picture is the finished Hangover Kits!

Finished Product:
Other things found inside the bag - a feather boa in their favorite color, which also matches the bag it is in, a pink shot glass that says "Girls Night Out" and a little baggie of 4 Mardi Gras Beads! I purchased Zebra Print tissue paper from Hobby Lobby, the bags from Party City, the Zebra Ribbon from Hobby Lobby and the Name plates on the bags I created myself using Sticker Paper & Scrapbook paper.

My next project is to work on the Address Labels for the Wedding Expo & The Jello Shot stickers! Yep thats how we  roll - we are getting together tomorrow (Friday Night) to mix up some Jello Shots for Saturday Night!

Wedding Date Set!

So I have been (im)patiently waiting for today *Jan 1st* to start planning our wedding! We have been engaged since October 5th and decided we wouldn't start planning the details until the beginning of the New Year, we both decided to survive the holidays and the stress that tags along with it before we added to our pile!

We now officially have our date set *which was the date I wanted anyways, its our Anniversary now & happened to fall on a Saturday in 2012 so it was perfect*

March 17th, 2012

Now to start the details of planning - our wedding party has been chosen - now we have to decide if we want a big wedding here at home in STL or if we want a small, intimate wedding somewhere tropical like Jamaica!


Let the Bridezilla Moments BEGIN!
