My Journey Home

My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.

let’s have a ball!

this weekend was a crazy one that can only be summed up in a famous FAIL/SCORE summary.

Fail: Getting someone else’s order at Chick fil-a

Score: Not noticing until I was driving away AND it was wrong in my favor- HELLO free hashbrowns!

Fail: Having an enormous cold all weekend.

Score: being a part of a parenting team- which means that in this house, mom actually does get sick days when she needs them.

Fail: A crazy storm that produced golf ball sized hail- knocking out our power for over 9 hours on Saturday evening.

Score: being married to the techie of all techies- we could still stream Netflix onto his iPad using a back up battery and WiFi tethering on his cell phone. never fear, josh is here.

Fail: Not winning first place with my amazing table at the Ladies Brunch

Score: Winning Runner Up- Which is First place among the losers 😉

Score: Getting a prize!! Runner Up Flowers

Fail: Spilling the flowers and dumping the water all over my car on the way home…

my lovely handcrafted centerpiece



You can find a great yarn Ball tutorial Here– although I will say I did not follow there instructions exactly, and I am paying for it! My centerpiece is no longer structurally sound! It only lasted the day of the event.  If you do follow their instructions I highly recommend using white yarn and spray painting the color you wish your balls to be. Otherwise the cornstarch shows through.
