I've lost 18 pounds in two months!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! I have not been sharing much on here, other then the Thursday morning Idea Box parties, but I have some great news to share with you!

For the last few months, I have been looking for work and still no office position  has opened. :(

I was working as a part-time secretary at a church for 12 years. For many years my husband wanted me to find a full-time job to help with expenses. Finally, an opening came up and so I applied for it and got the position. I worked there for one month and HATED IT! 
I quit that job and now I have nothing. I am still looking for an office position and not having much luck. It has been very frustrating for me.

Anyway, I decided that while I have the time now, I wanted to start exercising and eating less to loose some weight. It is beginning to pay off!



Can you see a little bit of difference? I have updated and changed my picture on my "About Me" page. I still have a long way to go and will keep you updated on my new adventure!!

Thanks for stopping by!

25th Wedding Anniversary Party

Hello. As most of you know, I have not been blogging for a while. Just have not had the time to create crafts and can't find much to blog about these days. I haven't been in my craft room for what seems like forever. I don't know how a lot of you keep up on your blogs, but I enjoy reading them and I have been keeping up with our Idea Box link party each week. Thank you to those who join us every week! I so enjoy seeing all your posts.


My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Our children held an open house at our church Saturday for the occasion. The actual anniversary date is this Wednesday, May 18th.


We were married in our early thirties in 1991. I was thirty one and Scott was thirty two. By the time our 50th anniversary rolls around, we will be in our eighties. Since we don't know what life might hold from now until then, we thought, why not celebrate our 25th. Besides, not too many couples make it to their 25th this day in age, right?

Today, I wanted to share some fun pictures with you of our celebration. My sweet daughters made some pretty and simple decorations for the party that I enjoyed so much. They have great talent in that way.


This sign greeted us at the entrance of our church. Our granddaughter wrote this out for us.

 

Sarah found the heart, mason jar and tins at Joann Fabrics and Crafts. She did a good job painting them.

They hung on each side of the refreshment station where they served cake, nuts & mints, and refreshing lemonade and water. I loved how simple this was.

Don't you love the mason jar jugs they used for the lemonade and water? Our church has an awesome kitchen to use for parties.


A simple cake too. Half chocolate, half white.                  My fun-loving uncle who was thirsty. (Lol).


Sarah made this sweet plaque for us with my wood burning tool! The silk flower is the boutonniere my husband wore on our wedding day. This is just one of the items of memorabila that the kids displayed at the party.



We  have a box that we keep our newspaper clippings, scrapbook, wedding cards, napkins, program bulletins, and pictures in. The guests enjoyed looking at the items. 


This is the actual unity candle that we lit at our wedding. 


Did you notice the burlap "love" baner on the front of the display?


Burlap & lace, fresh flowers & mason jars were the theme for the nice, simple party.


The little ones enjoyed 7 week old baby Eden. She sure was a hit.


We enjoyed having my mom at the party.


We appreciated all the work that our children did for us. We were so happy to see all our family and guests that could make it out on a cold, rainy day. We received so many cards. Even though we asked that gifts be omitted, we received some gift cards to our favorite places to eat.


Our children went together and gave us a hefty amount on a visa card for us to go on a vacation of our choice plus a visit to Tacoma, Washington in the fall!!

Here's to 25 more years of marriage!

Scott and Cyndee Christman
