holy mother of pearl it’s been almost 4 months since my last blog. and yes, i will be the first to admit that i have intentionally neglected it… oh yes, i kept telling myself “karen, you need to get on there and blog about this… and this… and this”, but i was so distracted reading up on all of these other fancy blogs that i just didn’t feel like it. there, i said it… but i’m back in the game!
so let’s do a fun, abbreviated game of catch-up since we last spoke in March. i feel pictures with brief explanations will suffice to catch you up from April until June
April was my sweet, sweet Nanny’s birthday. We combined an Easter celebration with her birthday and she was so happy! It is quite difficult to care for her by ourselves so it is always a special treat to kidnap her from her “apartment” and bring her to Mom & Dad’s to have her all to ourselves.
April is also mom’s birthday. We celebrated up at the lake house. It was a simple celebration… just perfect time with family, good food and sunshine playing on the water!
Before we ate Mom’s birthday dinner, Brittney Grace was wiggling her tooth like cuh-ray-zeeeee! I thought it was so cool to have a loose tooth when I was her age but after watching her wiggle that thing it was absolutely grossing me out. So finally after a major battle and convincing it wouldn’t hurt… it finally came out (with a little help of course)! Just in time for a fabulous spaghetti dinner… perfect!
May was a super busy month! We had something to do it felt like every time we turned the corner! I love that feeling… so productive and accomplished!
A good friend of ours is a phenomenal photographer. She just started her photography business last year and wanted to expand the wedding section of her portfolio. I gladly nominated myself and Philip to play that role since I didn’t have any formal portraits I was thrilled with from our actual wedding day. We had a blast taking photos around the Dorothea Dix campus in Downtown Raleigh. You should totally check her out at http://www.ajdunlap.com!
I did manage to throw a surprise party for the great sister in the world… mine She is always talking about how much fun it would be to go to one of those clay painting places with a group of girlfriends and just go to town. So that’s just what we did. It was a blast!
Well… I told you I was going to update you on June but it seems I didn’t carry my camera much last month. We had a wonderful birthday party for Philips cousin, Jordan… who just turned 4 and is cute as a button. We celebrated our wonderful Dads on Father’s Day. And before you knew it… June was over and July has begun!
Lots of fun stuff is happening in July! And I promise… I will not neglect my blog as I have these past few months. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
