Memorial......ehhh 4th of July!

So, I'm just a tiny bit late on posting things from our Memorial day cookout... But what better time to remember than the week before 4th of JULY! yayyyy 
These are two of my snack ideas we had for the party.. redwhite&blue fruit shish kabobs!  
I feel like shish kabobs are a must at any party! i just love food on a stick! hah
Also, rocket pops. duh.
how can you not?
Also, they are Luke's favorite so... we could not..not :)

hard to believe its almost July!
I've got high hopes for July... My sister Rachel who has been living in S.Korea for 2 years comes home this week.. for good (at least for a good while)  and two of my cousin and old friend are getting married in the next two weeks.
it is gonna be a good one.
I also foresee, at least one spontaneous beach trip in the near future.
and on that note..
Have a happy week!

giver of gifts.

I have a few gems that Luke has recently gotten me while he is out on the road.
One of which being this amazing necklace. (its my absolute favorite)
its a wooden charm set in a bronze riveted casing with a bird cage printed on it & a tiny key charm. I really love it and feel like he did such a good job finding a unique piece that fits my style.

Another set of treasures he got were these sticker books.
I have always had a slight obsession with stickers, since i was a child.  I always collected stickers and loved keeping track of them in my sticker book.
Luke, also loves stickers... he uses anything and everything as his "grown up" sticker book, he's laptop, iphone, drums, ....  So when he came across these two amazing books i was super excited to add to our collection.

Another obsession/collection we have are bottles. 
These miniature viles really make me giddy because they are so cute.
I haven't decided what will fill these, but whatever it is i guarantee it will be cute, (&tiny) 

(more from the sticker book)

  thanks Luke.

photofriday vol.4.. The Arnolds

Last week was my best friend's anniversary!
They have a pretty cool "wedding day" story.
and well, they both are pretty cool.
We took some photos in my backyard to collect a memory for their 3rd year of marriage!
It was fun, they are way too good looking for their own good.
These are some rough edits, and only a few of the bucket loads of photos we took.
hope these colors are inspiring for you.
To read about their wedding day, and other adventures check out Mary Ellen on skyeteal.

I'm Still Here...

Hi strangers.
I've officially been off of the computer for a week and a half... no internet, unexpectedly.
It's been so busy I've hardly noticed... but coming back into the blogosphere is a bit overwhelming tonight!!! So much to catch up on!!!!!
I promise i have lots of posts... and different things i am getting into that i cant wait to share.
In addition to getting internet set up at our house, we now have cable (for the first time ever for me)  So I really just wanna watch a show with my man right now.
So we will catch up later. :)
But i just wanted to make it known, that I'm still here.

love you all
