Happy, Happy, Happy!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
This day has already started off on a busy note. I suppose that's what you get when you are raising a 5-year old boy and it's his favorite holiday of the year! We woke up before sunrise just to pack up all the day's necessities. LB is going to be in the annual Halloween parade this afternoon as well as participating in a party at Kindergarten. Needless to say, there were numerous trips to the car to haul all the goodies he needed for school. Now that's he's finally been dropped off safe and sound, I can take a breather and post an update! At least until it's Trick or Treating time...then it all begins again. Lucky me. haha!

Happy Birthday!
I cannot let today go by without mentioning that right this second, as I type this, one of my dearest and bestest friends is giving birth to her new baby girl. So...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY K!!!!
I can wait to pinch on her! After so many long years of wishing and hoping and praying for a miracle, today is the day the world is blessed with the new little princess' presence.
And happy, happy me, won the "guess the baby birthday" pool, so I do believe I'm about $20 richer. WhooHoo! Even more reason for celebrating!

Happy to be done!
And, as promised, here are the updated bouquet pics! I just know you were all chomping at the bit to get a look, right?!
You know, when looking at it in person, I feel like it's done. It looks finished. But, the photos still make it look a little bare. I'm toying with the idea of pulling out the picks and using a small floral cone in order to make it smaller and fuller. Am I just plum crazy? What do you all think? Should I add more stems? Maybe a few small beaded flowers? Or should I just leave well enough alone? Oh, and the brooch is just for show. I think I'm going to swap it out with another one, but I wanted to get an idea of what it was going to look like.

Hi Delilah,

I do have a blog but have been keeping it secret and under wraps until I get a reply from weddingbee . . . I have applied to be a blogger and am awaiting a no-thank-you or Yes-we-love-you! However, I could use some feedback and if you want to see it, please e-mail me at chaegan at hotmail dot com.

And, I whole-heartedly agree with Erin ~ your bouquet is perfection, don't change a thing. Absolutely stunning!

:)

Oh, a BEE?!? How exciting! I will be crossing my crossables that you make it. And OF COURSE! I'd love to read your blog so far. I am by no means a blogging expert, but I'd be happy to offer you my opinions. I'll drop you an email this afternoon with a request for the link.

And thanks ever so much for the sweet words. You are too kind.
