Korean Tacos, Reality TV, and Rolls of Ribbon

Tacos and TV

Wedding DIY

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I wrote a little haiku to go along with photos from a delicious night with friends that took place about a week and a half ago. We had so many choices and everything went together so well -- the more the merrier -- even if it seemed like it wouldn't. In addition to having Korean tacos with all the fixin's -- Korean-style chicken and beef, kimchi, perilla leaves (kkaenip), mushrooms, as well as guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes, corn, and wheat tortillas -- we watched Giuliana & Bill, Khloe & Lamar, and the girls offered to cut lots of strands of ribbon for a wedding project I'm working on, which I really appreciated!

Korean/Mexican fusion
I went for the big burrito-sized tortillas
Various sizes and shades of ribbon... and dessert
Perfectly cut strands (and Khloe K. on TV)
Ribbon fight!
One roll down
Thick/thin, satin/iridescent, white/ivory/champagne

Now that the ribbons are cut, I need to move on to the rest of this project!

My DIY/semi-DIY projects:
Cake topper (and instead of a haiku, a limerick)
Ceremony programs
Coloring books
Enclosure cards
Escort Cards
Guest Book
Reception Programs
Ribbon Wands
Thumbprint Tree
Welcome Bags


  1. oh my goodness you have so much to do!!! i wish i were crafty and then could offer my help. in fact i'm the opposite and others usually have to do all this for me! (hannah did my programs and menus, haha)

    1. I enjoy crafts and creative projects so it's by choice and not a chore, but I've been so busy with work and the apartment search that it's definitely been a challenge!
