Dum Dum Tree

Last night Ash and I sat with my Mom as she made a little "dum dum tree" for her desk at school. What is a dum dum tree you ask? Well, I will show you...

Mom says this is for her kids at school to have a little treat when they come to see her, but if you know my Mom and her candy habits, you know she will probably enjoy some of these herself :)

Football and Wedding Fun

After a busy week of school and work, we also had a busy weekend. Friday night Connor's best friend had his birthday party at Canton pool and luckily the kids had a great time and swam lots before the storms rolled in. Then early Saturday morning, we got ready to go to Woodstock for Con's football jamboree. Even though it sprinkled some and was kind of messy, the weather felt nice and it was a lot of fun. I am not sure there is anything cuter than these handsome guys dressed out in their football gear! We are fortunate to be playing with several of our close family members and friends and are so happy about that! 

You can't see his number perfectly in this picture since he is down and ready to play, but Con is #45 for football this year! 

After the jamboree, we went to a baby shower for Kimmy and baby Caroline. I am not sure I have seen a prettier pregnant person, but then again, I would not expect anything less. Love that sweet girl like the older sister I never had! Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures at the shower :-(

Next, we attended our sweet friends' wedding at The Wheeler House. The wedding had such a relaxed vibe and you could see the love between Nick and Brittany at all times. The guys stood around catching up, and the girls did the same! We shared lots of laughs and were cracking up that most of our conversations revolve around our children. Oh my, how things change! 

The picture below made me laugh out loud! Jill is my best friend in the whole world, we rarely have time to slow down to take pictures together but when we do, we make sure to tell the photographer (in this case Lee) exactly what to do...you can see us preparing here...lol...

By the way, Jill has started a blog so that we can keep up with her sweetest little blonde headed boy. Love this child and his sweet grins! Check out Blessed By Bentley and leave Jill a comment letting her know if you will be reading so she will UPDATE more!!! ;) 

Two of the funniest brunettes I know....you never have to wonder what these girls are thinking...that is my kind of friend! 

And kudos to Nick & Britt for feeding us all delicious bar*b*q with delicious brunswick stew..need to get that recipe from Britt's Mama! 

Here's to having a fantastic week of work and school to you all...

Pinteresting Picks

If you aren't on Pinterest, you are seriously missing out. I thought I would share some of my favorite pinterest finds with you all.

These taco bites would be the perfect snack for a pool party! 

Love this super frilly chair!


Obsessed! I can't wait to try and make one of these. 

I MUST own a farmhouse sink one day! Isn't this kitchen dreamy?!

Gorgeous closet for a little boy ;)

And that's all for now!
