Hittin’ Up the Craft Stores


What a day of wedding errands!

Today we’ve accomplished quite a lot with regard to some of the crafty projects we hope to complete before the big day. We hit up three different craft stores and picked up a myriad of supplies including:

  • Fabric
  • Foam board
  • Ribbon
  • Baskets
  • Picture frames

Some serious crafting is about to go down. 😀


When we arrived back home, it was time for lunch.

On the menu today was a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with Sarabeth’s jelly that I tried at my parents’ house back in April and loved.

Along with my peanut butter and jelly, I enjoyed fresh cherries.

For dessert I had a fluffy sugar cookie that my mom made using my grandma’s recipe. The last time I had these cookies I was in Pennsylvania over Thanksgiving. The cookies are fluffy and almost cake-like which I adore.

Woops! How did those get in there? 😉


After lunch, Ryan and I headed out back to try to catch some fish in the canal behind my parents’ house.

Apparently fish don’t particularly enjoy imitation crab meat (our bait of choice) and we decided we much prefer catching to fishing. 🙂

Honeymoon Update

Ryan and I have also made some serious progress on the honeymoon front. We’re pretty sure that St. Lucia is going to be our destination of choice.

If any of you have stayed at the Anse Chastanet resort and have any thoughts, please share! Other St. Lucia resort recommendations are also more than welcome. We’re still going back through all of your previous comments as well. Thanks again for all of your comments and suggestions! You guys are the best.

Now I’m off to get crafty!

Hope you’re having a great weekend so far. 😀

    We went to St. Lucia and we had a great time at the Sandals Regency. The good thing about Sandals is that you can visit the three other Sandals they have there on the island. We went to Sandals Grand for the day for a change in scenery.

    You’re going to love it there…it’s beautiful!

    We went on our honeymoon to St Lucia and loved it!!! We stayed four nights at TiKaye and 3 nights at Ladera 🙂 I would recommend both and loved what each resort provided!

    I just got back from my honeymoon in St. Lucia! How ironic! We stayed at the Sandals Regancy in a duplex at the tip of a cove cliff and it was beautiful. Woke up to a sunrise over the ocean every day. I would definitely recommend Sandals, it’s all inclusive with different activities. We did the land and sea tour: saw the Pitons, volcano, took a mud bath and bathed in the suphlur springs, went to the Diamond waterfall, toured a botanical garden, then went snokeling. It was amazing. If you go, definitely stay in the Sandal’s Regancy. You can get a shuttle (for free) and go to the other two resorts, but the Grande was like a huge spring break/MTV party and the beach was dirty, the Hylceon didn’t have much of a beach, but they did have a good restaurant. Good luck! Have fun with the rest of the marriage prep! 🙂

    I have stayed at the Anne Chastanet and it is AMAZING!!!! You would love it. It is gorgeous, beuatiful, and has a great view. You should check out their “CLoud Nine Suite”. There is an open wall… which is basically no wall and it is so romantic. I’m jealous haha I wanna go back!

    Julie, my husband and I stayed at the Anse Chastanet (up in Jade Mountain) for our honeymoon and we loved it!!!! I reccommed asking for an upgrade to Jade Mountain, which is the resort within the resort. Our room had a private infinity edge pool and they upgraded us for FREE! Also, get ready for the best meals EVER. We still talk about it everytime we go on vacation. They have a cuisine called Absara. It’s Indian food meets Carribean and it is TO DIE FOR!
