It's so sad when your childhood icons pass away...

I just learned that today Merlin Olsen, who played Jonathon Garvey on Little House on the Prairie passed away. I always thought he was the nicest man next to Charles Ingalls on that show. My dad once gave me a Merlin Olsen Pro-Football trading card! I still have it!

And of course how sad that Corey Haim died?! I think things were a little tough for him and I feel bad for the way his life turned out. So very sad. I first remember seeing him in Lucas and loving his lovable dorkiness. And then I loved him the "Corey" movies! Licenced to Drive, Lost Boys and Dream a Little Dream. I saw that movie in the theatre a few times and thought the Coreys were sooo cool!
Well anyway... so sad how his life had to end. :(


You love those celebrity death posts. Remember when I thought you were joking about MJ?
You are the only one I've seen mention Dream a Little Dream. I love you even more now. Oh, how I loved that movie. It's possible I have it on VHS and can't bring myself to give it up.

RIP, Corey. ):

Closer and Closer

Wedding planning... oh JOY! I'm at the point where I can finally take a breather and just enjoy the time right now. I have been a bad friend... not returning phone calls, not answering emails. I get stressed out and crabby about wedding invitations and silly wedding to-dos. Tomorrow is my last day of work for 5 glorious weeks! I need these days off. I come home from work and there is always something going on at night! ALWAYS! T and I made a pact to not add so much to the month of July. To just enjoy the last month as a "dating" couple before we are a "married" couple. T has to work on selling his house, I need to work on my house getting ready for out of town guests and a rehearsal dinner in my backyard. So if we are absent in July... it's just because we decided we need some us time. On a great note, our pre-marriage counselor says we make a great couple. I mean we already new that, but it's nice to hear it from a professional. :)
The invitations are i…

Glitter House

I'm obsessed with glitter houses! Especially old vintage ones. I have a nice little collection of them, but I also thought it would be easy to make my own.  My mom ordered a bunch of cardboard houses from Hobby Lobby online. Sadly, there are Hobby Lobby stores in MN, but they are in the southern part of the state. One day I'll have to make a special trip down there! 

You can really do whatever you want with these houses. I painted mine first with acrylic paint and then sprinkled some mica snow flakes on them. I got  2 huge bags of Mica Snow Flakes off of Ebay last year. On the roof I painted glue on and then put a ton of glitter and snow flakes. 
I had some vintage glass balls I used on the wreath and trees. But really you can use anything you like!
