Will the Real Summer Lovin' Please Stand Up

This marks the second week of freedom from law school.
Except that it doesn't, because the hubby is taking a horrible intensive, which ends Friday.
So this Friday, we will be able to celebrate all over again that the beginning of (the true) Summer is upon us!!

But that doesn't mean we haven't had some fun this weekend. :)

Friday was an adorable birthday party for a sweet little boy we know named William. His party was straight out of a magazine, which is a tribute to his creative and food-tastic mother, Stephanie.
It was manly and mustache themed :)

"You really tickled our whiskers --
please help yourself to
'the stash'!"

"Wet Your Whiskers".

The photo booth area.


Stephanie (and her husband Josh) really outdid themselves. The menu consisted of delicious mini sandwiches (including a dark bread/brie combo that was melt-in-your-mouth), fruit salad, pasta salad, fruit cones (ice cream cones stuffed with delicious fresh fruit), salt and cracked pepper chips, and individually-cupped veggies and dip. The drinks included water, bottled root beer and minty lemonade.
The sweet treats were some of the best -- chocolate or peanut butter mustaches (see below), animal crackers, gumballs, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate dipped pretzel sticks with sprinkles, and lemon vanilla cake/cupcakes.

Needless to say, we were completely stuffed. But that didn't stop us from filling a few bags to-go!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day. The weather has been top notch for the last few days. Lynchburg had a week or so of really vicious mood swings, going from sunny and hot to windy and rainy. But now that perfection has struck, we can only hope that it will last!

When it came time for cake, we just let the babies take charge. And boy, did they take charge!


Happy birthday, William. :)

The rest of the evening, we took photo-booth pictures, and played some cornhole. Some healthy competition was going one. :)
We somehow always end up being girls vs. guys...

Aidan really wanted in on it :)

The rest of us just watched, and were on baby-watching duty.
I don't think Dusty minded very much :)


I spent some time with the adorable Pierre, who was very French indeed, down to the cute little puppy bandana.

We discovered Pierre's love of tissue paper.
"J'aime ma famille.
Accessoires tissus et papier sont en haut de ma liste comme bien,
parce que je suis celui qui suis."

The rest of the our weekend went by in a blur.
Saturday consisted of Luna and I in various positions of relaxation.

From this:

To this:

 To this:

And finally, to this:

Eventually we just gave in and told each other "i love you" and went on to other productive activities.
Like this.

Sunday was a haze of movies and coffee.
And a lotta this:

My first official craft fair is coming up this weekend, so I've been a busy little bee building up enough inventory for it. I have around 30 pairs of earrings that I finished up this weekend, among other accessories :) I can't wait!
If you're local, come by! It's at Yellow Branch Baptist Church in Rustburg, from 8am to 5pm this Saturday, May 26th.

My crafting movie marathon consisted of:
1. Ever After
2. The Holiday
3. Cast Away
4. Countless episodes of How I Met Your Mother, season 3.

It was a beautiful day outside, so I made sure to have my blinds open. :)

On another note, the hubby and I are doing our own version of a juice cleanse for the next week or two. Wish us luck as we have our fruity oatmeal in the morning, and fresh juice throughout the day. We managed to muster up the courage to visit our resident fitness center (no air-conditioning, which is hopefully just temporary), and plan to make that a regular habit.

AND we found a PARK in our complex!! Who knew!

 I think that's all for my musings and updates. So for now, I'll leave you with this nugget of truth and warning:

If you ever go to a J. Crew (or "insert fancy brand name store here") warehouse sale, wear flip-flops, a tank top, and skinny jeans or shorts. And don't bring your husband.

You have been forewarned.

G'day mate!

In love,
