simple & pretty


I have been going crazy over the tablescape and details of this wedding. It would be lovely for a small bridal or baby shower as well. Anyone getting married soon?! I will host it!!!

Spring Forward

Last night after work we got into Spring-cleaning mode and fixed up our yard and dusted off the patio set. Hurrah! It made me so excited for summer. I'm also glad for these longer days, which means we can take the scooter out at 8:00 and still have plenty of light. My parents also stopped by and dropped off a loaf of heavy Irish soda bread. It was the perfect evening.
So perfect, I made Adam take a picture of me:Tomorrow night i'm hoping we can take the horses out.

...and maybe buy me some pants ;)

It's Friday and The Hills are Alive

cloudy drive home from Powell summer '10
Since none of my goals last weekend panned out exactly as I had planned, i'm shooting for some new realistic ones.
I guess asking your significant other to help with the dishes is a little far fetched. oh well.

Last night we watched our Young Women perform in the Sound of Music. It was quite the production. A little more put together than when I was cast in the Sound of Music in 8th grade as Fredricka. Yes, you heard me right. Only 4 boys tried out for the play that year, so that meant they had to turn the 3rd oldest Von Trapp child, Frederich into a girl. Fredricka --> me.
My mom was so proud. tear*

This weekend I hope to go to the Temple, plan my lesson, teach on Sunday, celebrate Amanda's Birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!...wash my car, find a new book, buy a new swimsuit, figure out where all the dust bunnies in our house are reproducing, and teach my husband how to pick up the annoying english muffin crumbs and hardened strawberry jelly mess all over the counter.

So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.

4 years ago today I was sitting in a fabulous hotel room
in Kiev, Ukraine lining up my Matryoshka dolls one by one
and watching 'Fashion TV'.
(i'll explain in another post....) ANyWaY....
When what to my wondering eyes should appear but Igor, the hotel
concierge at our door holding a platter of chocolates with a rose and a
small typed note. FOR ME!
The note simply read, "Happy International Women's day!"
All these years and I had never heard about International Woman's Day.
Casey and I immediatley sent some flowers to my Mom in the States.
Happy Woman's day to all you babushkas out there.
3 high fives and a hip bump to you, sistah.
It also happens to be my parent's Anniversary.
we love you.
P.S. There better be a platter of chocolates and a rose for me
when I get home...that Igor has raised the bar.
P.S.S. WP & BP stand for "Wrongo Pongo" and "Big Pike"
that's also to be explained in another post...
