Currently loving..

I finally finished painting my bathroom and wanted something new and cute to add to it and I knew I could find something on Etsy. I searched "quotes" and found this cute shop. I also found this one which I adore.

Cynthia Rowley has designed a childrens collection exclusively for Babies R Us called Hooray and this cute dress/shirt is part of it. I got one for Ava and I can't wait to take her to the pumpkin patch and take some cute pictures of her.

My friend Rachel had this cup a few months ago and it just so happened that when we went to L.A. in July, we went to a Starbucks that had a few left. Apparently they are the hot item and are sold out most places. It is a hard plastic tumbler with a hard straw that is the perfect size. I'm glad I got it when I did because they are nearly impossible to find!

Brier parade.

The kids love parades, especially ones they can be in! My brother heard about a parade in Brier that was sort of celebrating Seafair..or maybe the end of it anyhow and he wanted to ride his dirt bike in it, mostly just as an excuse to ride his dirt bike I think. Anyone could be in the parade and the theme was sea fish and pirates so I called up Campbell and Cooper and had them decorate their bikes. They were so excited to be in the parade. So excited that Cooper wore his helmet in the car from the time we left, until the time we got home..too cute! Ava enjoyed it too, for the most party. Until the loud sirens went off, then she wasn't too happy. Cami and Coop each had candy to throw out to the crowd. It was funny because Campbell threw out handfuls while Cooper would throw one at a time. He had a nice stash still left at the end of the parade..funny kid.

Holy zucchini!

Remember this post? Well...it's ready, and I have more zucchini than I know what to do with! Not only are there a lot, but they are HUGE. I have been getting "hints" all day as to what I should make with them and a few people around here are hoping to get some zucchini bread as early as tomorrow..we will see!


Today I am loving:

The cooler weather.
Halo reparative Shampoo & conditioner.
That I finally have motivation to finish painting my bathroom.
That I get to have dinner with Stevie tonight!
That I ordered pictures and they are ready today.
That I get to visit the scrapbook store tonight.
That I was able to actually dry & straighten my hair today.
Today is a good day.

Surprise Party.

Saturday was Melinda's 50th Birthday, and we were actually able to pull off a surprise on her! Our neighbor Stephanie wanted to throw her a party so a few of us got together to help her. On Saturday I took Melinda, Campbell and Ava to the mall to get Melinda out of the house. We had a great lunch at Panera and then hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. We let Melinda shop around for a few hours while the girls and I went school shopping for Campbell. Melinda knew our neighbor was having a party Saturday evening, but thought it was for her husbands employees. We drove up the back way to our house and Melinda said, I wonder how Stephanie's party is going? I started turning down Stephanie's street and Melinda said "Don't turn down there!"

I didn't say anything and once she was able to see everyone she realized that she knew all of them and she was just shocked. She was like "what?, what's going on?", I said, it's a party for YOU! Happy Birthday :) She was so shocked!

Melinda means so much to so many people and it was so nice to surprise her. She has devoted her life to her grandchildren and they love her so much. She is so important to me and my life and has always been there for me. I love her so much!
