Wednesday Morning Finds

I hit the jackpot @ Costco!
I found Hannah Anderson pjs....and thought I would have Benson model for you.
You need to go get some. Of course they had tons of pink options that were super cute.
These will be perfect for July 4th!
I just love Costco. 

Look what else I found this morning in the garage. This was before he cut his bangs himself.

And yes, the undies are on backwards on purpose. I can't convince him otherwise.

It's a wonder how I get to work in the mornings.

It's Wednesday

The week is flying.
Finally getting up photos from FATHERS DAY! HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!!! We had a great time up in Boulder. Not only did we celebrate the Dads but we assembled Sa-Sa's wedding invitations. soon as those are officially out - we can show you the BIG INVITE!

This is Andrew showing off his awesome calligraphy skillz. Don't worry - he only addressed the one to his brother.

In the meantime - here are a few shots from the weekend.
Enjoy these while I....


work on finishing up another wedding invitation.

work on finishing up some baby announcements.

work on some family stationery.

Jeff's Daddy present finally arrived....and here's a few new shots with ZOOM LENS. Luckily we have a few hams in the household that will help us try it out. And YES we know those pants are on backwards. Silly, silly you. Don't you know it's more fun to have the big picture of Spidey on the FRONT!?!?! (we'll do anything to make potty training go smoothly)

Baby blankets

Our Denver tribe has a tradition of knitting everyone's first baby a group blanket. Each girl in the tribe knits a row or square. Then our resident "professional knitter" sews the sections together to make the official TRIBE blanket.

I just saw this on Purl Soho.
Well...actually their blog The Purl Bee.

Such cute color patterns!

Sooo...Kathleen... this post is for you to be inspired for the next tribe blanket. WHO WILL IT BE???

Matchy-Matchy 2.0

Ahhh more fun match match thank you notes. I just love this. It makes you look so buttoned up. When maybe you are, maybe you aren't. I usually am not, so I like smoke & mirrors.

Its Ordered

I had to do it.
Get one of these outfits for Benson. Charlie had one. Sadly - his 1st bday fell on a rainy May wknd. So he had to wear a shirt under it. Still cute. It's ordered and should be here end of July.

I know. I know.
It's the southern influence in me. I can't help it.

You can order up one too, at The Childrens Cottage.

And they'll be so stinking cute that you'll end up taking about 1 million pictures likes this of him in an outfit he'll probably kill you for making him wear it when he's 16. ;)

So yummy. The family went to SNOOZE for breakfast this morning.

If you haven't been, you need to go. SO DELISH!
I can't ever decide between sweet & salt - so luckily they have giant pancakes....I had a few bites of Charlie's chocolate chip. Ben had a few, too.

The poached eggs are almost too perfect. Seriously. Today's bene was w/ asparagus & mushrooms. AMAZING.

This blog would have been a whole lot more exciting if I'd actually taken pictures of us eating there. But then that would have meant I had to put my fork down.

New Baby Announcements

Babies are just so cute.
I'm working on some announcements for a friend in Chicago.
Can you see all those smiles?!?!? She has one seriously adorable family.

This is a test.

Which color do you like?

I'm leaning towards the blue........I usually do.

We completed another section of cabinets thanks to the rainy weather that kept us indoors this wknd. Jeff took advantage of the soggy ground and dug out the old nasty gas lamp & grill that had been sitting out in the back yard unused since 1962. 

What did you do this weekend?

Friday, June 11, 2010


This is just perfect timing for a rainy weekend.

The new June/July issue of LONNY MAGAZINE has arrived.

I would like that blue bowl in my kitchen.

I did a quick run thru and I am looking forward to going back for a more thorough read.

The San Diego Beach Weekend

Oh the bachy!
It was a success I think. In MY book anyways. We planned ALOT.
Planned all the meals, all the drinks, all the outfits that Sally was to wear, the yoga session, the Andrew questions, the sinata-pinata. PHEW

There was beach time.
Twister time.
LOTS of yummy food.
FUN little treats.
And silly-ness!

happy crazy busy

I think I fooled myself when I thought that things would slow down after the bachelorette party. HA! I am NOT complaining at's just BUSY. The scary thing that I keep hearing from folks with children is that it just gets BUSIER!!!! I really can't let myself think too much about that. I might melt.

Sa-sa's invites went to the letterpress in Utah. It's the same shop that printed my wedding invitations 5 years ago. *sigh* They will be here on Wednesday. Of course we have more to finish up - but she can get going on addressing. GET READY SA-SA!

Robin's invites are almost complete. We are adding a little yellow insert @ the last minute. I think it's gonna add some fun color!

I have a beachy bridal invite coming & a cute little girl baby announcement in the works. I know you're excited to see those, too.

In the meantime... here are a few photos of whats been going on @ our casa. We had a great time planting flower in our flower box & Charlie had fun learning how an umbrella works.

Benson loves to find his toes. And he likes to play peek a boo!

Good Luck

Have you checked out The Pioneer Woman?
I'm sorta kinda definitely in love with her.
She can do everything from cooking to photography to homeschooling to living on a ranch. Make me want to hate her alot. But I find myself coming back to her blog weekly to see what she's up too.

This week she's giving away fancy knives. My 1/2 way renovated kitchen could use some fancy knives. So I entered. You should too.

These are some photos of my favorite recipes from her. Go cook.
