Jiggly what?!?!?!

Yesterday as I called my little group of friends to my kidney table for our reading group, one of my "fun" friends sat down right directly in front of me and this is what he said...


Awesome...about that diet...

Come to find out, with some research from 6 year olds that a Jiggly Puff is some sort of a Pokemon character...He better hope it's some kind of character!

Potatoes and Babies...

I just returned from a short stay in Idaho to love on one of my baby's!!! Let me tell you...she is freakin CUTE!!! I almost brought her home with me! I also enjoyed my cousin Lindsey and her husband Brian. It was fun to see where they live and how they live (small town!)
Here are some shots...I literally held the baby all was soooo fun and relaxing!!!

She is so sweet!

"Let's Get Physical...Physical!" Lindsey brought out all her bows to show me and so we played a little dress up...
okay so maybe it wasn't meant for ALL the bows at once...she was embarassed!

Tucker, showing off his "handsome" bows...Tucker is one of The Jensen's friend's kiddos...super sweet and smart!

She is as sweet as pie! Thank you Jensen's for your hospitality! I hope to be back soon!

Mr. and Mrs. Gluestick...

This last month has been a blur, but I am slowly coming out of it. Something fun I got to do was be a part of my great friends, Lisa and Mark's, wedding.
Their wedding was held on May 9, 2009 at McMenamin's Edgefield. They could not have picked a better venue or date! Up until that week...the weather was looking grim, but that weekend turned out WONDERFUL!

Friday the 8th we arrived at the venue for rehearsal...little did we know how muddy it would be!

Dinner was held at Amalfi's which is one of my favorite restaurants!

Saturday morning was filled with make-up, hair, dressing and photos!

We had a wonderful time and I hope the Goodman's had a wonderful honeymoon in Europe!

I am sad they are moving away to Salt Lake but look forward to a few trips out there!
