Saturday, Elizabeth & I played dress up! First she highlighted my hair. Then she did my make-up. Then she forced me to put on some of her dress-up clothes and she took LOTS of pictures of me! It was so much fun! I felt 15 all over again :)

Our Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, our family cooked a wonderfully delicious breakfast! We had pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs & blueberry muffins. YUM-O!!!
Afterwards we took a few family fotos :)

Happy Birthday, Love!

Saturday was Dan's birthday - the big 3-1 :) We had a very nice day and then cooked out on the grill for dinner. Because it was also Mother's Day weekend, we had several visitors - which made his birthday even more fun and special. My mom, my mimi, Ronnie, Richard and Darcy were all here this weekend! Plus Elizabeth came over to deliver some little giftys for him also! Edward cooked us a brisket (YUMMY!!) and Dan & Darcy cooked White wings out on the grill. Dinner was super good then we topped it off with Banana Pudding for dessert!

Gavin's Room "After"

Apparently I did not take pictures of Gavin's room "before". But basically it had the bed and a bunch of stuff just piled everywhere. No shelving - no organization - nothing! But here is the finished product. Only thing I have left to do is paint the lower half of the wall with all the Disney pictures on it and put up a chair rail. I will post those pictures when I'm done!

I want to send a BIG THANK YOU out to Neicey for helping me - hang shelving, move stuff, decorate, etc. You rock!!!! I finally LOVE his room!

Now I just need a big area rug and a coffee table to complete the space :)

Another "After"

My BFF and Personal Decorator, Denise, came into town this weekend to help me put the finishing touches on my house. We actually finished 3 rooms - the hallway, the living room and Gavin's room.
So TA-DA... here is the hallway...

I will post the living room and Gavin's room pictures later ;)

The first "After"

Remember this picture of my sad & ugly mailbox?

Well here it is now all finished and pretty!!!

And I added a flower to our walkway...

I'm really enjoying this whole "home owner" thing... its expensive and tiring... but so totally worth it!!! I love making it "ours"!!!

Woofstock '09

A couple of weekends ago was the 2nd annual Woofstock celebration at our little park here in town. My new neighbor (and Gavin's 2nd mommy - she says) Elizabeth took Gavin and her son Caden. They had snow cones and got their faces painted. Gavin was worn out once they got home but they had a GREAT time!!!
