Wordless Wednesday: Dancing with My Girl

Monday, July 25, 2011


The wedding was AMAZING! SnL were beaming all day and night. The girls were adorable, the ladies were gorgeous, the men were handsome, the food was delicious and the band was rockin'!

Mimi minutes before the ceremony. Adorable! 
She was a trooper throughout the whole thing considering all the people there!!!

Iz and S all done up and gorgeous waiting for things to begin.

Post-ceremony sassy-ness :)

All the girls (minus Mimi)

Beaming MRS. B :)

Grinning MR. B :)

The newlyweds and their awesome cake!

One of the best moments of the night - SnL were dancing their first dance and Mimi came trotting out onto the dance floor to join in. I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE went "Awwwwwww."

Iz and S dancing with L...WAY past their bedtimes!

Iz getting down and showing off her moves with S.

What an emotional, exhausting, beautiful day it was. S got all teary during his vows which was the sweetest thing I've ever seen. L was just bursting with joy ALL day and night. You could just tell how in love those two are and it was so wonderful to be able to share in their special day!

Excerpt from
~by Wendell Berry~

“...our life reminds me of a forest
in which there is a graceful clearing
and in that opening a house,
an orchard and garden,
comfortable shades, and flowers,
red and yellow in the sun,
a pattern made in the light
for the light to return to.
The forest is mostly dark,
its ways to be made anew
day after day,
the dark richer than the light
and more blessed,
provided we stay brave
enough to keep on going in.”

Summer Bloggin'

I know I've been MIA for the last few weeks. Just a random post here and there but little else. Well, I tell you what - in the winter I have very little to blog about but plenty of time to do it....and summer blogging is the complete opposite! Plenty to blog about and no time to do it!

Today's one of those days - I have all kind of things to tell you but my mind is focused on one thing and one thing alone...

Tomorrow Mel and I are going to see the last *sob* Harry Potter movie!!!!!

That's all we've been able to talk about all week. We've been obsessively posting quotes from the books on our FB walls and I'm pretty sure everyone we know is ready to perform an unforgiveable curse on us if we don't go see this movie and SOON!!!

Once "Harry Potter Day" is over I won't have time to dwell on the end of the movies/how good or bad they are/how I wish there were more books because not only is tomorrow HPD, it also starts the beginning of WEDDING WEEK! That's right - one week from tomorrow SnL are getting married and that's all I'll be thinking about for the next 7 days :) I'll be putting a new ticker up later today!!!

Wordless Wednesday: So Thirsty!

4th of July!

We made the most of Hubby's extra day off and started the 4th of July off right with a nice small town parade. I managed to snap this picture of Iz and Hubby before the parade started but that was it - I was afraid if I took the time to dig my camera back out after the parade began I would miss it  :) It was short but fun and Iz got a whole heaping mess of candy which is the whole reason to go to a parade, right?

We headed back out that night to see some fireworks nearby. Iz was in a super silly mood before they began!

Then she got her face painted and played a couple games and that seemed to settle her down.

I played around a bit with the firework setting on my camera and got a couple of awesome shots!

We were SO close it was hard to get the entire burst in the frame! AWESOME!

What a great way to celebrate America's Birthday!

Hope you had a happy 4th :)

Graduation Party!

Saturday we celebrated my nephew's high school graduation. The weather was beautiful, the food was awesome and we had a blast! Iz spent most f the day in the pool with the big girls and slept like a ROCK that night :)

I was so busy socializing (can you believe it? ha!) that I didn't get a single picture of the graduate (click HERE if you missed who is was) but I did get a picture of the cake I decorated for him...

Of course, i grabbed some pictures of the girls...

...and I had to get a picture of the together since they were color coordinated. SO not easy sine Mimi is young and Iz has started making dorky faces/poses lately EVERY time I grab my camera!

 I also HAD to grab a shot of Auntie D hanging with Mimi in her little tent...Mimi LOVED having company :)

Awesome party WW and Uncle P! Let's do it again in 2 years when VG graduates, shall we?

Catching Up: Last Week We Bought...


Nothing fancy, I know but the van is 10 years old and getting terrible gas mileage. The a/c doesn't work, the radio works only when it feels like it and it's just too darn big considering 99.9% of the time it's just me and Iz bombing around, doing our thing.

We've had the new car for a week and it drives well, it's comfortable, has a/c, plenty of room for daily use and, according to my calculations after getting gas yesterday, gets 32 mpg!!! Plus, it has that new car smell.

So, that was our week. An exhausting weekend followed by a few days of relaxation and then a new (to us!) car :)
