I Heart Tiffany!

The Fam just after the pre-race dinner....Pasta, what else?

Just before the race....
At our post race lunch....burgers all around!

I love Tiffany & Co so much I will do a marathon for a necklace!!!...scratch that, a half marathon & a weekend full of friends and family isn't bad either!!! We had such a great time in the City for two days!

The weekend started out a little shakey as a glove was blown into the #2 engine of the airplane we were in. After 1 1/2 hours, a few mechanics and lots of digital pictures being sent off to more mechanics they thought our plane was safe to continue to fly.....

We had a great weekend & are already looking forward to next year's race! Anyone want to join?

Happy Apple Birthday Sarah!

My cousin threw her roommate/friend an Apple Themed birthday, who does not like to dress up or join in a theme.....thought it would be fun to play along!

I made Sarah these little beauties (so she could 'pig' out!)

The baby looked adorable in her apple outfit (minus the napkin- although that is cute too!)

We made carmel apples & bobbed for apples (I can't be included in the we here because I opted out of that game) and finished the evening with a very fun game of apples to apples!

Happy Un-Birthday to Me!

My great friend Jamie (along with some of my other great friends) threw me an Un-(half)Birthday Party this weekend because I spent my real birthday giving birth...thanks friends! The theme was 'Silly Hat Sunday"..... we had tea and dessert.....It was a great afternoon and so much fun! ....I had a great time, even though I hate surprises!

How many toes can you fit in your mouth?

This is Mitchell Sains eating his toes at my fathers request. After laughing at Kaylie for sucking on her toes, my dad offered Mitchell $1 for every toe he could get in his mouth. Mitchell quickly took him up on his offer and got 8 toes in!
Sometimes I'm so thankful I have a girl!

Well, if you remember her Dr. visit at 3 months we all found out that baby Kaylie can read....but did you know she can turn the pages too?!!!

Fall Has Come

Today I went to Crate & Barrel to get some Fall I just need a little advice to help them pop & look as cute in my home as they did in the store.....

I love these dish towels.... very autumn.

What else does my table need to look cute & fallish?....I really thought this was going to make more of a statement than it is.....where did I go wrong? Does it just need table settings, or something more?

I have always wanted a wreath, but never wanted to put in the effort while we lived in someone elses home.....decorating is so much fun, but I'm not very good at it- any advice will be well taken!

First Debate

Go Palin!...Kaylie was very interested in tonight's debate (ok ok....I know it is the bright lights, but being into politics at 6 months sounds much better) There were better pictures of her watching Palin, but I look awful so pridefully I'm not posting them! (at least I'm honest!)


Today at the mall, Kaylie & Kaysen were adorable together....I think they fell in love!

Don't you think it is LOVE in her eyes for him.....
