Card Container

i finally made my card box. i got the design from Heather Drive.
i basically used her directions and all her supplies.
it was a HUGE pain drilling and screwing those corner hooks!
FI did all the drilling- he seriously doesnt trust me with machinery!
i asked my mom if it was vain that we put pics of ourselves in there or should we just put pics of that cats? she said to use pics of ourselves. so we put in ones that remind us of good times- our trip to Italy where we were in a field of sunflowers in Cortona, along the westcoast in Big Sir, our first anniversary that we spent in VT and pic from the top of Mt Monadnock right after FI proposed!
i really like the finished product!! hope it holds up for another 2 months!

Ice cream addiction

i think i might be obsessed!
tonight i made vanilla chocolate chip!

I scream, you scream...

Another amazing shower gift put to use!
my mom and aunt gave me this wonderful cuisinart ice cream marker and i used it for the first time last night.
i made mint chocolate chip ice cream. all it called for was 1 c whole milk, 2 c heavy cream, 3/4 c sugar and mint extract (totally no fat or calories). mix it up and throw it all into the machine. last 5 min add the chocolate chips and within 30 min you have homemade ice cream! it was delicious! our neighbors came over to watch the sox game so we all have a bowl!! and there is still some left over for tonight!
