Makenlee turns 1

Sunday after the 4th we celebrated Makenlee's first birthday (it was on 7/1.)  Makenlee and I are buddies so I was excited to celebrate with her!

Laura didn't think about the blue food coloring.  :)

Lake trip and more fireworks

Friday morning Mom and Devin came over to swim and that afternoon Krystal and I headed out to Goose Creek for some lake time!  We had a blast hanging out, drinking, making s'mores and of course going out on the lake!

Krystal and I decided to come back Saturday night instead of Sunday morning so I decided to head down to the Counting Crows concert and fireworks at the Arch.  The weather was gorgeous and we had a great time.  

After fireworks we went over to KB & Jim's new place to check it out and have a few drinks before heading home.  Their new roof patio is awesome!  

4th of July 2013

This year 4th of July started out with the Hagy/Berthold family at Grant's Farm.  I met up with Abi and the fam at her parent's house and got some play time in with Gus while everyone finished getting ready.

Then we headed out to feed some goats and see some elephants.

We had a great time catching up and spending the morning together.  We went back to the house for lunch (where I was promoted to sit next to Gus, lol) and to chat a little more.  From the Hagy's I headed over to my dad's for a little while to eat some bbq and visit with him and Janet.  It was good to see him and hear about how his bike riding is going.  

After going home for a nap, I met up with Kristen and Devin and some of their friends for fireworks.  We were at the Bridgeton ones but you could see Hazelwood and St. Charles too so it was quite the show.  I love fireworks!

End of June

Last week was lovely weather-wise and a lot of fun.  It started Monday with pasta, beer and a trip to the pool.

For some reason people have started leaving their crap at the pool.  Irritating.  

I had a string of pool-related visitors - Amy & Nellie and their littles on Thursday and Emily and Erin on Friday - which was really fun.  Saturday I had my new door installed by Mom's boyfriend Dave (thank you!) and got to attend Adriana's first birthday party.  

She crawled over and was like, um, aren't we taking a picture? 
Clearly we're good friends.  

After the party I met up with Krystal and her mom and sister for dinner and Ted Drewes.  Then we talked about her wedding (the one I'm in in Oct.) at her mom's house afterwards because we both were cool with not spending a bunch of money, lol.  

Sunday I saw World War Z and took a nap.  I love naps.  

This weekend is going to be amazing - happy 4th of July!

New floors, new furniture, new front door... ok half a new house

In the past few weeks I have gotten new hardwood floors

New couches

And a new front door but since it pretty much looks exactly like the last one due to the condo association requirements there is not a picture of it.

It's all very pretty and now I might be eating ramen for awhile because pretty is not cheap.  :)


I stacked my entire living room minus the long couch in the kitchen while the floors were installed.
