Bad Blogger

I know, I know! I've been away forever. It's been crazy around here! I've been busy with this:




I've had so much fun making these adorable wedding invitations for my cousin who is getting married June 13. I LOVE the hot pink and navy color combo. I've also been working on menus, rehearsal dinner invites, etc.

Add to that the craziness of May. What the heck? School has been crazy lately with the kids. I've just finished baking ten dozen dinosaur cookies for BabyBoy's first grade Dino Day. Thank goodness I didn't have to ice them. No, we get to enjoy that catastrophe with the class. I'll be taking ten tubs of "brightly colored icing" and a pile of sprinkles for lots of super fun first grade bonding time. Awesome. For BabyGirl's class, it's dolphin day. Looks like I'll be making some dolphin cookies, too! On the bright side...I've mastered the art of cut out cookies.

This Saturday we have Field Day, for which I've been desperately trying to gather volunteers to work the booths. I'm sorry, but I am so OVER the Field Day thing. Let's just get a bunch of bounce houses a few slip and slides and a cake walk. Better yet, can I just write the school a check? I'm already getting nickel and dimed for tshirts, raffle tickets, casseroles, lollipops, etc. What's another hundred bucks? Geez!

We also leave Saturday for my brother Aaron's graduation from UNC Chapel Hill. I promise to take lots of pictures!



Speaking of pictures...BabyGirl and I stopped by the open house at the gym last weekend and she walked away with this crazy balloon sculpture. Ziggy the Clown was not messin around on this particular day! Of course, BabyGirl was pretty specific with her request: white bunny...big ears, blue eyes, pink and blue leash. A leash for a bunny? She did make haste in pointing out to me that bunny's eyes were actually "aquamarine" and not blue. Okay. Whatever.

Tomorrow night I'm overseeing a rehearsal dinner at a local museum. Lots of cute flower arrangements and photos to follow...

And next week...my master bedroom is officially finished! (well, for now atleast) I'll post new pix soon.

Have a great weekend!

I am loving the hot pink and navy-- the white polka dots really set it off. What a lucky bride to have you on her side!

The balloon animal made me laugh b/c there's a place in Lake Bluff where we used to take the kiddos I nannied every Sunday for the balloon lady... it got pretty out of hand with the specific requests. :)
