How does your garden grow...

We planted a vegetable garden this year and are finally beginning to get some veggies from it! We didn't really have a place in our yard to put a full out garden, so we just planted them in pots. At first we weren't sure if we were going to get anything...but lately some of the things have really been flourishing (while others have died!){Avery loves to help pick the tomatoes...she even happily tries one every time, but as soon as it bursts in her mouth she gets the most disgusted look on her face and spits it out. Oh, well at least she tries!}
{this cantaloupe is about the size of 1 1/2 softballs!}
{some regular tomatoes...don't know which kind since Avery helpfully removed all the labels!}
{cherry tomatoes too}
{Yum...nothing better than fresh picked veggies from the garden!}

36 weeks...

and nope...we STILL haven't decided on a name!

a country chic baby shower

A few weeks ago I helped to host a baby shower for my good friend Holly.
Of course I designated myself in charge of decor!
Holly is a country girl, so we decided to go with a country chic theme.
Here are a few shots from the shower. {a banner for baby Blake}
{sunflowers & rosemary}

{each of the hostesses brought a baby book for Blake}

{the gorgeous and yummy cake!}

{food and drinks}

{the box of rocks}

{giving mama's belly some love}

{we are due just about a week apart!}

a sweet pink bridal shower

I also hosted a bridal shower for my sister-in-law Kayti recently.
I wasn't very good about taking pictures at this one,
but did get a few of the sweets buffet I set up.
I LOVE the way it turned out and will definitely be doing this again!!

Bye Bye Bailey

a week ago today,
we lost our sweet, yellow lab Bailey
in a freak accident.
she was only 5 years old
we sure do miss her!

I tell you, they will be there long
before any of us."

Is your mama a llama?

But I think my Daddy might be
a kangaroo! Happy Father's Day!

Is it just me, or do these just seem wrong??
I thought these were a joke when I first saw them,
like those fake commercials they sometimes have on SNL.
But no, they are real...I have been seeing them EVERYWHERE!
Would you put these on your baby?
I most definitely would not...
but to each his own I guess.
