Blanks and a How To!

Happy Friday my friends! I'm at work today...maybe not all day though. Apparently my coughing is disruptive and makes people uneasy :) I thought that I should show my face at least once especially since I'm not contagious or anything.

I didn't have the time, energy or creativity to come up with a My Friday Fancies outfit today so instead I thought it would be fun to link up with Lauren at the little things we do for Fill in the Blank Friday! Read to the end for a super fun Tutu How To!




1.  The love of my life is   James Philip Gougler.

2.   Falling in love is   like breathing. It keeps you alive and makes you stronger. Falling in love with the love of your life is effortless because it's just meant to be.

3.  Marriage is   hard work. It takes time, love, dedication, commitment, communication, energy and so much more, but it is beyond worth it.

4. The longest relationship I've ever had was  5 1/2 years and going strong.

5. The key to a good relationship is  communication and forgiveness.

6. I feel loved when   people think of the little things. Remembering the little things that make someone smile means so much. My hubby brought me a purple Gatorade (my fave) this week when I wasn't feeling well and it made me feel SO SO loved!

7.  My favorite quote about love is   "We love because he first loved us" John 4:19.


I promised y'all earlier that I would show you my tutu how to as soon as I finished mine up! Well, last night I mustered up the energy to bust out my sewing machine and add the finishing touches!


Supplies you'll need are:
3 yards tulle color a
3 yards tulle color b
Elastic band - I used 1 1/2 inch thickness
Ruler 
Scissors
Sewing machine {I have tips for a no sew tutu as well!}


Fold tulle in half long way.
Measure out about 8 inch strips and cut the length of the tulle.
Cut along the fold and you now have 2 strips.
Do this for all of your tulle.


Fold piece of tulle in half.
Wrap tulle around the elastic and pull through the loop {loop created by folding tulle in half}
Pull tight and grab another piece of tulle


Alternate colors and number of pieces of tulle used.
Above I did 4 black, 2 pink, 2 black, 4 pink...so on and so forth...
Once all of your tulle is on the elastic, it's time to sew it together!
Use sewing machine to connect two sides of the elastic. {Sorry no pictures!}

Not a sewer? Use ribbon instead of elastic to wrap the tulle around...then you don't have to sew just tie it around your waist!


Finished product! Please excuse how gross I look...day 4 of being sick.


All 3 completed tutus!
Mine: Pink and Yellow
Julie: Hot Pink and Black
Andrea: Pink and Blue

We're going to look so stinkin' cute!

I hope you're Friday is absolutely fantastic. Have a glass of wine...or two for me since I can't drink for another several days :) Have a great relaxing weekend and I hope that you have a three day weekend like me! Yay for Presidents!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
