I am working on designing my nephew's first birthday invitation. I am super excited, because he lives so far away, that I am grateful to be able to help out even though I live 1100 miles from him. So tell me...what do you think? I know the first and last are really similar...it is just a different photo. Thoughts?!?!

Photos from Sarah and Brad's Wedding 7.11.2009

These are just a few of the amazing shots that Sarah and Brad's photographer took at their wedding. I loooovveeed my dress, hair, and makeup! Sarah was of course as georgeous as ever! Priss was beutiful and the wedding was fabulous!!Enjoy!!

Last week's recap!

I am so behind on the blog! This is the busy time around the office. I spent last Saturday through Wednesday in Montreal for work, which was AMAZING. It was so pretty there! I missed the little bug though, and was grateful to get to spend Wednesday afternoon with her. I got in around Noon, so I went and picked her up from school so we could have some girl time before Daddy got home from work. We took a nice long nap, then headed to Wal-mart to look at Halloween costumes. She was SOOO excited--see, we have been talking about her costume for weeks now. She new EXACTLY what she wanted to be...

Introducing Bat-Girl 2009. I was a cool Mom and after we paid for the costume she got to put it on and walk around Target ;) Such a happy and fun day. It is easy to get wrapped up into the "every day", so it was so nice to just be in the moment with her!

On Friday night I went to see Miss Britney Spears with the bestie. It was so much fun!!! So nice to have a girls night and get to witness the legend in action!

Saturday was Sarah's Birthday, so we had a great dinner and just chilled! I can finally share the Sarah is expecting!! I am sooo excited to be an Auntie, and Ava is thrilled to have a new baby cousin that lives here and not in Ohio! She told Sarah that she would be mad if the baby was a girl, because she really wants a new baby brother! Ha! She doesn't quite understand that boy or girl, she is just going to be a new cousin, not a new sister ;) Baby Emerson will be here in April 2010!

Happy Monday!!

Way back Wednesday!

I can't believe my baby was this stinkin little. This was my all-time favorite baby outfit of hers. I was obsessed witht the hat-she had no hair, and so i loved to cover up her bald little head :) Happy Hump Day everyone!
