So Sad.....

I'm a little bummed as this week comes to an end, because my parents,sister,brother-in-law, and Macy Kate are all going to the beach.  It is going to be Macy Kate's first trip and I would love nothing more than to be there the first time she puts those little toes in the sand.  I guess I can't really complain since I did get to go to Jamaica last month ha ha.  There is just something about going on a family vacation, you really didn't appreciate it as much when you were a kid.  As I get older I long for those summer vacations with the family.  However I am pretty excited about having a weekend at home, however I do have a busy weekend, my best friend Brittany is having another shower on Saturday, and another one of my good friends Emily is having hers on Sunday.  We FINALLY have someone coming over to get started on the damage from the flood, so hopefully my den will be put back together and functioning in a short time.  It is driving me nuts with everything being out of its place, and we were so busy before the wedding that we just didn't have time to deal with it, so I am very excited to get things somewhat back to normal.  I also plan on soaking up as may rays as possible,  I have not been able to relax by the pool in a few weeks so I am looking forward to relaxing and reading.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!


Wedding Mania

As I mentioned here a while ago, my best friend Brittany and Luke's best friend Michael are getting married this September. This weekend we had her FIRST bridal shower!!  Our friend Katie came down from OH on Friday and we were busy bees getting everything ready for the shower, and were back up and at it Saturday morning.  Since Brittany LOVES candy we decided to do a candy bar, and went with the colors of her wedding which are purple and silver.  Everything turned out so great and I think the bride-to-be had a really good time.

We had to have something semi healthy ha ha

The food table

Cocktails of course

The Bride-to-Be

The bridesmaids...minus one



The Bachelorette

I have to say the bachelorette is a guilty pleasure of mine.....I ask myself every season why I watch the nonsense when I know they will probably not last.  It doesn't help that as this season nears the end Jake/Vienna and Ed/Jillian split around the same time.  I will say there is something about this season and the men that seem different to me.  I don't think there has ever been a cast that I have liked so much (other than a few bad apples).  Since the previews have made it pretty obvious that Frank goes home next week I think she has narrowed it down to two pretty awesome guys.  I have been a huge fan of Chris the entire season, and have my fingers crossed that he will be the one to propose in the end.  It has seemed to me that their relationship has been more real and moved at a more normal pace.  Roberto is a cutie, and I'm sure he would be a great pick too!!  I have managed to stay away from all the spoilers so I cant wait to see who she picks!


4th of July Weekend

The 4th of July happens to be my all time favorite holiday.  I love the colors,the celebration, and everything the holiday stands for.  I always get so excited when you start seeing stars and stripes when you go into the stores.  My parents always have a big party for the 4th, and it is always a lot of fun.  We went over there on Sunday, and Monday went to another cookout at a friends house, so I am beat today.  I was hoping after the three day weekend I would be able to say my house was organized and I felt a little more like my life is in order, but unfortunately I'm still just as overwhelmed.  Here are a few pictures of my niece Macy Kate from the weekend.  She is such a doll, and its amazing how she has no fear of water, just loves to jump right in, and to go underwater...did I mention she was 18 months old??

Of course we had to take her clothes off and let
her eat watermelon like we did when we were kids

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!


I am BACK!

No I have not fallen off of the face of the earth ha ha.  I thought things were supposed to calm down after the wedding, but I feel like my life is more hectic now than before!  I am still waiting on pics back from my photg and I plan on doing a post all about the best day of my life!  I hope everyone is doing well, and I promise to not be so neglectful from now on =)
