weekend recap - a wedding an a pinterest craft

We were were rather busy this weekend.

Friday night we started out with one of my college best friends from college weddings. 11-11-11 was one busy day for weddings - we saw several just in our hotel, as well as the reception venue.

Mr. and Mrs. Wenning
Justin and I at the reception

myself, Brandy and Aly
{the 3 of us were roommates in college}
Their first dance
I love all the W's everywhere
Saturday morning we drove up the road for Justin to play golf with Jimmy and Jess and I went outlet shopping. Although we weren't completely successful in shopping, we were able to come back to their house and craft.

I saw on Pinterest the ruffle tree skirt that everyone was pinning. I decided to take on the challenge of this craft!
Lets just say when the tutorial calls for snacks - they weren't kidding.
After 20 hours of working on this darn thing {and thats even cheating by using a sewing machine to make the ruffles rather than glue gun} I have a finished product for the basement!

Our basement is scarlet and gray {for our BELOVED buckeyes} and I plan on tying in the aqua blue for the holidays. {and please don't mind the fact I brought the tiny little tree upstairs to take the picture}

That was our weekend in a quick little recap. I hope you had a great weekend as well!
