A DAY OF GOOD FORTUNE Hǎo péngyǒu | HINOON DAILY(ISH) VLOGS

19 Feb

I’m sick. Today my voice is nearly completely gone.

Let’s get straight to it. The vlog for today. I should start by saying, I love the people I live with. They’re all necessary to complete my happiness and as you can see in the very ordinary day, where I don’t feel well, each one of them touches my heart and makes me laugh.

I found the funny yet again.

 

See you tomorrow.

The Perfect Destination Wedding Gift

22 Sep

One day can change your life. One day can ruin your life. All life is is three or four big days that change everything.” – Riding in Cars with Boys

I think the same applies to people. You meet three or four people in your life, that significantly change its course and make you different. Allow me to introduce the first of these people to you, my childhood best friend Ashley.

Childhoodfriends

The cliche’, we did everything together, is a cliche’ because we wrote it. I don’t know if there have ever been two kids who did more little life together than we did. As life goes, we grew up and our lives were different. We have remained friends for nearly thirty years and this summer, after traveling the world and living in places like San Francisco, New York, Steamboat Springs, Ashley got married (but, who knows where she’ll land).

She has collected friends and family from all over and the majority of the wedding party was coming to her.

 

When she started listing off the places people were arriving from, we put this idea together. I am not crafty and this was not easy, but I loved how it turned out.

Destination Wedding Map gift

Supplies:

Map:  You would think this would be easy to track down, but alas, no. I ended up buying the size image I wanted off of this Etsy store and then having it printed at Kinkos on foam board.

5/8th pins off Amazon

red string

glue dots size large

sticker to cover your mess of strings underneath. I chose one that said, “I do”

Sharp scissors

Shadow box

From there, I packed up and headed to the craft store.

Technically, you’re not supposed to work there, but as a non crafter, I know, that I would get home and realize I needed something else or the thing I bought wouldn’t work….

So I plopped down at a display case and any time I needed something, I walked to the aisle, picked it up, opened it and stuck it to my project. Never you worry, I paid for the whole bit.

 

 

I put a large glue dot at my destination. Then I gently pulled each string and stuck it to the dot. When the strings covered the dot, I added another one right on top of the first and kept going. Finally, I added a larger three dimensional sticker on top to cover the string pile.  I think it turned out beautifully and was a big hit with the bride and groom.

A gift to keep and remember that people will travel far and wide to experience love.

HiNoonatNight

3 May

Finding time to hang out with my husband isn’t the easiest with three kids and our busy lives, but lately we’ve been carving out time for “date night” and we video tape it. ….SCREECH!…what?!

Our family is used to having cameras around, vlogging for our Youtube channel: Breanneshop52. It’s a fun place where we show funny clips throughout our days in hopes of making people laugh and realize that you can find the funny in most situations.

Eric and I decided we wanted a channel just for us, where we talk about whatever comes to mind. Let me tell you, that’s the truth. I have no idea what he’s going to say next! After 4 episodes we’re having a great time and hopefully making people laugh along with us.

Here is last night’s video. We’d love to hear your feedback.
