Monday Miscellany

Well Hello Monday.
We had a wonderful weekend filled with family and friends.
Friday after work I made these. Yummy and super easy.
Friday night we had a delicious Rib dinner with my parents.
Saturday morning we met Dustin, Whitney and Easton at Diner Delux for a yummy breakfast and of course lots of cuddle, smiles and fun. Easton has become such a little boy and we just love him. His parents are pretty cool too. ;)

 "Smasher" and Uncle Just. So cute.
 One of my new favorite photos.
He was loving Justin's scuffy beard he's got going on.

After that we had a lazy afternoon. I did make the Corona Cupcakes for Troy's birthday. 
They turned out great but I didn't think they had a very strong beer flavor. The icing was yummy though (I used lime, not orange).

Saturday night we watched The Rum Diaries with Johnny Depp, Amber Heard and Giovanni Ribisi. We were disappointed, it was confusing and really had no story.
Cruz was sad about it too.

Sunday I joined Leigh and Nicole for lunch as Nicole will be having her little girl soon and we wanted to see that belly one last time and shower her with a few gifts. 

Then I was off to Laurel's first birthday party.
There were a lot of old high school friends, family and kids running wild. 
Carla did an amazing job of the party and Laurel was full of smiles, hugs and eating icing like pro.

I didn't take any photos as I was too busy answering questions as to why I was without baby. Seriously. Answering the same question over and over in a 2.5 hour time span is really fun. Like tons. Any one else want to ask me that question? Anyone? {And yes Sheldon that is sarcasm}. 

While I was out Justin went to play hockey with Blake and he even vacuumed and cleaned the floors! Good man. :) [He also was up early both mornings with Cruz and walked her while I slept in. Best Husband ever.]

Then we were off to Crystal and Troy's for a Birthday Dinner for Troy.
We had a great BBQ dinner and Emerson entertained us all night as usual. 
This photo alone tells you that 1. She is my niece for SURE and 2. She has great taste in men already.
Yes she walked around with this photo of David Beckham most of the night. Love her.
She is giving kisses now which pretty much melts my heart, loves to sit for stories, bends down looking for kisses from Cruz and seeks Justin out so that he can give her tickles. She is just too fun.
With her new hat my Mom made her. So cute.

And a few announcements:

The very last entry for the giveaway won! And that is is Al from Traffic Jelly! I was just talking about her on this very blog last week. So I hope this helps to bring out that inner "Domestic Diva" in you Al, I know it's there! :) Congrats. I will put you in touch with Kelly.
And thank you again to Kelly from Bugaboo Gifts for hosting!

And Taylor sent me facebook this photo this morning. 

Apparently my girl rocked it last night. 
I am going to have to check out her performance on youtube.
But nice work Taylor.

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

Those pretzel chocolates were so good!! I might have to make them myself except I have no self control and will gain 10 pounds in 1 day!! The Corona cupcakes look delicious too- personally I would be fine with them not tasting like beer but I could see how the boys would be disappointed!!

Easton and Emerson are so cute!! I never get tired of seeing pictures of them.

Yay Taylor!!! She deserves those awards!

Britt said...
