Trunk







My mother in law passed down a really cool trunk and I was so excited to fix it up. First I had to sand it really good, this took a long time, but I am so happy to now have an electric sander. Oh how electric things can save so much time!

BEFORE:
 


AFTER:


I also did a little something extra in the inside. I am going to use this for a place to put Chandler's gifts for his party. The original idea was to use it for seating, but gifts would look so cute in this trunk, don't you think?



Lots of party planning going on. I need to get invitations out next week. I don't have too many to make because we're not going to invite too many people. I didn't want to plan activities for kids, so I am just making it a smaller party.

Have I mentioned this party is going to be in a magazine? It is and I am so exited! My plan is to begin an event planning business one day and the publicity is going to be great for that business one day. The magazine is a local one called XYZ. And one of the best parts are the gals that are coming to write and take pictures. They are awesome at what they do and I am so happy they'll be covering the party. Lacey is the writer, you might have seen her blog on my side bar, but HERE it is. Megan, is the photographer. You have seen a shot of Taylynn that she did HERE, but you can go HERE and see some more of her awesome work.


Lots to plan and lots to do, but it's time to put Chandler and Alayna down for a nap and possibly mommy too!
