Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

This time last week I was sitting in a 9 hour long class and then coming home to work on some stuff for my twin’s ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ themed bridal shower (Audrey Hepburn)…  (yeah, I’ve never seen the movie, but I think I did pretty good lol)  I can’t remember if I told you all that she was getting married in May or not…. Well, “My twin is getting married in May” haha… there ya go! ;)  So I put together all the centerpieces:


Here colors are blue and silver and the Calla Lily is her wedding flower and then the pearls and diamonds are related to the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Movie.  If you know the movie at all, you know that Audrey wears a sleep mask that looks like this:

So I decided to make my twin a mask for her shower:












Then I had some extra pearls from the string of pearls I had cut all the decorations from and decided to make myself a necklace to wear to the shower the next day to “stay in character” lol:

And then I also put together two games for the shower and by that time I was so exhausted from the day that I went to bed.   I’ll post pictures from the shower either later today or tomorrow sometime… it was a fun time and my twin really enjoyed it! :)  I’m so glad she did!  I’m excited for her!  Being a newlywed myself, I know how exciting of a time this is for her! :)

Running related note:  I didn’t post my weekly roundup last week because well… remember my streak? … it ended lol… last week was a hectic one at school and with getting everything prepared for the shower, also, my knee has been hurting lately… not so fun… so I rode the bike for 35 minutes last Monday and that was it. :(
