Shake the hanger pangs

Being a wedding coordinator comes with major perks; I get to experience something new every week while in the meantime meeting so many amazing brides and vendors along the way (I wouldn’t change a thing about my career!) At the same time, there are some downfalls-mainly running around like crazy people in between meetings and office work. Where does my time go? I constantly find myself asking where does my time go after a long day, and after a long day, I find myself pretty dang hungry. Actually h a n g  r y. Hangry does exist everybody. After turning HANGRY from an overload of caffeine and trying to remember if I actually took in anything of sustenance during the day, the last thing I really want to do is create a healthy meal, instead, I want something quick and easy and most likely unhealthy. This is a bad, bad habit. We preach to our brides about eating on their wedding days and honestly, we’ve got to start practicing. So I’m going back to one of my favorite, delicious and healthy recipes for peanut butter balls. Packed with protein to tie us over through the day. Chock full of chia seeds, flax, oats and peanut butter, these will satisfy just about any tooth you have and keep your hanger in check. TIP: Guys like them, too!

So we took the matters into our own hands and got crafty. Really, it is much easier and less time consuming than anybody could imagine. Just because we are wedding pros doesn’t mean we are project pros, but consider this craft day conquered. After a fun field trip to the craft store this morning, we got to work. WHAT YOU’LL NEED Wooden bases Wooden numbers Hot glue gun Glue sticks Spray Paint   1. Don’t just go crazy and start laying down glue. Lay out exactly where you want your numbers to stand. Mark the line with a pencil. 2. The numbers that you’ll find at Michael’s are edged; you have to start at an angle. Line the angled side with the hot glue and hold until dried. Go against the backside of the number and put down another line of hot glue. Should be sturdy after that! TIP: After numbers have dried, go around and pick off any stray glue strands; this will be important to do before painting, or it might look messy. 3. Take the dried numbers outside, CAREFULLY, and spray with the color of your choice. TIP: Don’t spray up close and personal with the paint. It is better to have to do a few coats than to have drip marks throughout your finished number. Make sure you get enough coats on your numbers, turn them upside down and to the side, or you’ll...
