The gentleman and I did the Bridal Bazaar last Sunday. It was super fun meeting new people and just seeing so many happy couples. I’m so sorry that the Photo Friday is so “business related” today but so it is….

I have a very special photo Friday for you today 🙂 The gentleman and I have been working on our house which has included making decisions about art and decorating. While that is fun, sometimes it can be frustrating with how expensive some art is. We saw a piece we liked a while back and really wanted it but really didn’t want to spend that kind of money on it. My mom mentioned that she knew this awesome senior (he just graduated in June) at her school who is super talented. We asked him if he’d be interested in doing a piece for our house and he was all over it! This guy is talented!! He has really blessed us with a beautiful piece of art for our house 🙂 Believe it or not, this is the first actual painting he’s done! He also used some sticks to paint some of it which I think is really cool. I really wish him the best in college and in his life.
Thanks Abraham for this wonderful art you’ve created for us!
 

Photo Friday #24, 25 & 26 – i’m a bit behind July 10, 2009

So almost a month later, here are 3 weeks worth of photo Friday so I’m doubling the pics hah. We’ve been working on house stuff and wedding videos so I think we have a good excuse…plus there are only about 3 people who actually read this blog so I’m not too worried 🙂
First off, the Del Mar Fair – our yearly free wine tasting fun!
The gentleman making fun of the ginormous crap you can win
Next up, Bottle Peak…the highest point in Escondido where you can see all of Escondido. Here we are with the newly engaged Tony and Fei!!
A word of advice…don’t go when it’s boiling hot like we did and don’t go when there is poison oak EVERYWHERE! I don’t know how but none of us got it!
Last, our country’s Independence Day. We took it easy and chilled with the Paulsons and some awesome carne asada and a not so awesome dessert (a new recipe I tried that looked delicious but didn’t taste quite right, I’m still not sure what happened! So no photo/recipe of that!)
Then we headed over to Grape Day Park (I’ve always gone to the SM show) and Ryan picked us a wonderful spot! The entire show was behind those trees. HAHA lovely!

First of all, it still feels like the beginning of 2009 but as I type week 23/24 of Photo Friday I realize we’re halfway through!! How did that happen?
So in April I was in two weddings, my cousin’s (a couple posts back) and then my good friend/long time friend Tiffany. I’ve known Tiffany since elementary school, we were in girl scouts together and on the swim and flag teams together in high school. It’s so fun to know someone for so long!
Apparently I’m blogging backward?
And for the 2nd ‘pic’ for Photo Friday I totally forgot to mention on of my mom’s gifts for her bday. The gentleman took some pics of my brothers and I for her and framed them. It was kinda difficult to get all 3 of us motivated at the same time to do this but we got some good ones I think 🙂
here’s my favorite…when we were just randomly laughing at something…sometimes the most random pictures are the best 🙂
 

Lately… June 15, 2009

Filed under: adventure,faith,plus a little extra...,thought,to do — plusalittleextra @ 2:30 pm

Lately –

we’ve been tempted to work on our house
we’ve been too busy with editing to be able to work on our house
we’ve noticed we have a bird that likes to slam into one of the office windows (he really wants to come in i think)
we’ve had a flood in the bathroom
we’ve found a huge beetle (about 2 1/2 inches long!)
we’ve seen lots of bunnies running around our backyard
we’ve bought plane tickets
we’ve been to a funeral
we’ve been to a wedding
we’ve held a newborn
we’ve watched some good movies
we’ve watched some crappy movies
we’ve been to the fair
we’ve felt blessed

needless to say…lately we’ve been busy! i think the saying is true “when it rains it pours” because everything has seemed to hit all at once… but we should be catching up over the summer and by fall our lives will be much calmer (i hope!)

I can’t forget about the best part of any party that my brother’s at!
Tyler + Karaoke + booze = The Devil Went Down to Georgia
…every time
And please excuse the horrible video quality!! This is video from my still camera and I’m just holding it and laughing..oh and I had had a couple drinks 🙂
Enjoy!
 

Mom’s 50th Birthday June 10, 2009

Filed under: family,plus a little extra...,to celebrate,to see — plusalittleextra @ 5:09 am
Here are some pictures from my mom’s 50th birthday party, it was a blast!!! To start, here she is with her lovely 50 crown.
Here are some details: the chocapalooza table with the glorious chocolate fountain, the “25 things about me” wall which included many interesting facts about my wonderful mother, and the signature drink – the chocolate martini!!!! sooo yummy 🙂
         
Such a cute picture of my cousin Colton hugging Caleb, Tiff’s baby…the couch full of grandmas (I’m so blessed to have so many)…and my uncle Larry entertaining the party with his band!

          

The cake…all my mom’s friends who have turned 50 recently…and my mom and I taking a  shot together, ahh bonding
          

My cousins pretending they were missing a leg (haha imaginations!!)…some of the guys exclaiming “wow, 50!?!?!?!”…and karaoke (where the martinis come in handy)

          
Naughty pic of my mom and her librarian friends “taking shots” (be sure to notice the sign behind them)…and my mom, her sisters and their mom, such a nice pic.

Happy Birthday mom! 50 down, 50 to go!
