Finally Friday!

What is this 3 posts in a week?! That’s pretty good! This weekend is going to be busy! I love how summers do that, every weekend is jam packed!
Tonight we are going out for Friday night dinner. Around 8 we have some our friends Adam and Sasha are coming over. We’re going to have a little couple’s game night. Saturday we hope to clean out some flower beds and plant a few seeds. (lol that sounds… interesting) at 2pm we have a 1st birthday party to go to! After that we have a Grad party to go too… I’m hoping we can make it to the grad party, but not holding my breath since two parties in one day is a lot for Ms. Layla. And then since 2 parties wasn’t enough Ben has a bachelor party to go to Saturday night.
Sunday is Father’s day! I’m going to let Ben sleep in and make him breakfast. Besides that a little grocery shopping and laundry is all that is on the list!
Enjoy the weekend! Hope it’s nice!!
And to end this post with a cool picture, Layla’s school had them draw themselves and then you could purchase the class pictures on different things. I got a mouse pad, here’s Layla’s self portrait.

One of the parties I am planning in August is a Mad Hatter Tea Party Bridal Shower. (That's a long name) I am the Maid of Honer at my best friends Becca's wedding. We've been friends since the 6th grade! Here she is last year at a friends wedding:

(I'm not sure why it's so gainy looking)

Anyways so hats! I own a few, but nothing for a Mad Hatter Tea Party. Here's a few I am thinking about that I found on Amazon

I like this one, but I think it's more sun hat then fancy hat. But it is only $12.95 Via

Product Details
I love black and the bow is so cute! $34.99 Via

Product Details
I like how huge this one is!! $45.95 Via

And some more Fancy ones, which I think I am leaning more towards:

$13.95, much better price! Via
This one is very Mad Hatter-ish $24.19 Via

$2.26??!!! What?! So cute! Via

Parties & Weekend Round Up!

This weekend Ben went on his works annual camping trip, which sounds like a company event and that families should be invited but it’s not. It’s a bunch of guys from his work that go camping together and have a weekend drunk fest. I’m totally fine with some girl time though! Friday night Layla and went out to dinner with my friend Kaylene, it was interesting… When I picked Layla up from school the first thing her afternoon teacher said, she didn’t nap very and has been pretty grumpy… Great we already had plans! We only had one time out and she did fairly well. I’m always nervous going out to dinner with someone who doesn’t have kids with my kid!
Saturday: My mom came and picked Layla and I up. A town about 15 minutes away was having town wide yard sales! AMAZING! I got absolutely no pictures but I got a bar cart for outside $5.00, 4 patio chairs $10.00 and a ton of brand name barely worn clothes for Layla.  After that we went to a quick lunch cause Ms. Layla was getting close to break down mode. When we got home we were walking up our front steps, I was holding Layla and my flip flop caught on the top on a stair and down we went! Luckily I didn’t fall on her but she fell into the next step with her back. Agh I felt awful! She’s fine; I’m fine just a little bruised. After my Mom left and she was down for a nap I had a little breakdown about it.
Sunday: Ben came home! We just hung and were really lazy! In the evening we washed my car and the tent trailer. After Layla went to bed I watched some Real Housewives Reunion and passed out!
Parties! My life is consumed by parties right now! From friends birthday parties to Ben and Layla’s birthdays to a bridal and bachelorette party! I am in the process of planning 5 different parties right now!  4 of which are happening in August! Its nuts! Luckily I always start planning Ben and Layla’s birthday’s way in advance. There birthdays are 13 days apart and I want both of them to feel special! Agh, good thing I like to make lists!

 Good Morning!! Kind of a mix of stuff post! This weekend was beautiful! Almost hot and so nice! Friday night Layla went to my Mom's (they had big plans to plant a garden Saturday) and Ben and I brought Trent the tent trailer home! I have missed him! Saturday morning Ben worked on the yard and I started painting Trent.

He's going from this:

To this:
Bye Bye 70's! The color is more of a light tan then a white. Every piece of woodgrain in this little beast will be painted! It's already making it look bigger and making the yellowness look better. Side note, I love the floor! I am not planning on doing anything to it! The different shades of yellow make me happy!

After working on Trent most of the day we headed down to my brother's. He lives in a historic part of town in a mansion that has been converted into apartments. Anyways every year the neighborhood does a huge Art Fest in the park about a block away from his house and about two blocks away a bar called the Elk does Elk Fest. Lots of live music, food, art. It's so nice to have Eddie live so close we spent most of the day on his front porch people watching. And I noticed something that have seen a million times but never really looed at, the wall paper in the hallways of his mansion!

So pretty!!!

Have a great week! I hope everyone has nice weather! I think summer might have found the Inland Northwest!
