The parent's to be! (any day now, I can't wait!)
She looks so beautiful. You can't even tell she is due any day.
We let the father-to-be have the first hit on the pinata. It didn't go well. He thinks he is like strong and all buff and stuff and knocked it right off of the rope in one shot. Thanks Pickle!
This is the stash I caught my dad with after we broke the pinata.
Pickle and Little Ms. Sass having a bubble war.
The "other" grandchildren.
So we went with a cowboy theme since they are having a little buckaroo. I had so much fun making the banner and the welcome sign and all of the cute little cupcake flags. It was a lot of work but turned out to be well worth it. You can't beat cupcakes & lemonade (oh wait I hate lemonade) under a big tree on a hot August Saturday with family and friends. The H.D.B. on the banner are the initials of the currently unborn child in my sister-in-law's stomach. Oh right, that would be my nephew.
Diamond B for the Bennett's. My mom just had to get a cake even though I made 70+ cupcakes that were a frickin' hit I might add.
This was the non-spiked version.
"Flick your cigarette and kiss me..." I love that line. It's so sexy. I can't get enough of that song. If you haven't heard it (you live under a rock if you haven't) check it out, Franz Ferdinand, No You Girls Don't. I have to mention that I hate smoking for obvious reasons and very personal reasons, but I had to have a cigar in honor of the fast approaching arrival of my nephew. I am so excited.
Onslo is so funny.
The father-to-be and my awesome bro.
Oh that's me.
He can even make a plastic cowboy hat look good.
I'm sorry I can't look at this pic for too long. That face he is pulling out of his ass just kills me.
My bestest friend in the whole wide world.

I've been working on this here and there for a few weeks now. I'm so glad to finally have it finished. I was really excited to see a brown wall in our bedroom when we moved in and I've been racking my brain ever since to figure out what to do with it. I took a bunch of our old black frames and painted them white and one turquoise. Most of the pictures are from our honeymoon that I took. I am also glad to find a place for my original UGLYSHEEP art piece.
So I woke up this morning tired as hell. I had a night terror last night and haven't quite recuperated from it yet (it's 5:30pm). After Ty woke me up from it I could not get back to sleep and all day I've been trying to shake it off with out any luck.
But when I came across this online today I was pleasantly surprised. Kate Spades new fall collection. Yum! I want to dress like this for work every day. My head is spinning with ideas on how to pull this off on my budget. As soon as we get our finances in line I am buying some colorful tights.
