my mother

i read shelly's cute post to her mom..
it was inspiration to do one of my own

having a mother as your boss as well as your best friend rocks.

hope i still have a job after posting these pictures...


we love ikea...
but not as much as their fab $1 ice cream cone...
this picture is so not flattering...

May 8, 2009

take me out to the ballgame

this past week i threw a shower for some good friends
{walker & hailey will have the cutest baby ever...hands down}

my favorite part was the cotton candy
they were eaten before i could snap a shot...

thanks to all who helped...i'm sure i'm not fun to be around while stressed
{this includes drew, brie, michelle, and my sweet hub}

oh and of course to mom who so ironically bought herself a cotton candy machine...
i knew it would come in handy someday!
