Happy Birthday Lucas and Beckham!!

Today is the day that two of my boys share their birthday!

Lucas turns 11...

...and my sweet little Beckham turns three years old!  Where has the time gone?!?!

These pictures are already a year old but wanted to share them to spotlight two incredibly sweet boys today.  Just for fun, I thought I would interview them and share some insight into an 11 and 3 year old's life:

Mom:  What is your favorite food?
Lucas:  Buffalo Wild Wings - wings!
Beckham:  Pizza!

Mom:  What is your favorite movie or cartoon?
Lucas:  The Regular Show (Cartoon Network)
Beckham:  Spiderman and Batman!

Mom:  What is your favorite color?
Lucas:  Black
Beckham:  Blue!

Mom:  Who is your favorite Superhero? 
Lucas:  Superman
Beckham:  Spiderman!

Mom:  Who is our hero in real life?
Lucas: My Dad
Beckham:  Mommy!

Mom:  What do you want to be when you grow up?
Lucas:  In the Armed Forces
Beckham:  Superman!

Mom:  What do you hope to get for your birthday this evening?
Lucas:  Legos, a .22 gun, Call of Duty - Ghosts
Beckham:  Spiderman!

I am totally laughing at Beckham's answers - all related to superheros minus the food question.  And blue as his favorite color is because it's one of the major colors on Spiderman.  ;)  I am excited to celebrate tonight with them and pray that Parker will not feel left out with two brothers sharing their birthday - fingers crossed!

Thanks for stopping by!

Panama Hat


Well, I decided to pull out this white skirt before summer comes to a close and use my go to chambray shirt for an easy outfit.  Then the hat was just a no brainer.  We took these pictures and with the post below, Jas said, "You totally looked like MJ just then..." I didn't believe him.  Not until he sent me this:

I died laughing - the colors in the outfit, the hat, the pose, everything!  Purely coincidental - either that, or I had a dream the night before and had to re-create.  ;)

Northern Idaho/Spokane Part Two

I cannot stop gushing about our quick little weekend trip.  My only regret is that I wish we would have been able to get away longer, but with work, it was impossible to have more time.

I was honored when one of my BFF's, Ashlee, asked me to do her makeup for her wedding day, and I included a few behind the scene pictures of her special day (although I didn't get any of me doing that makeup).

Then a quick trip back to our hotel to get ready ourselves (and I needed input from my other BFF on shoe selection!)

Ashlee's Maid of Honor was her beautiful niece, Madison.  We've all joked about what a little stinker she used to be as Ashlee, Kali and myself all watched her grow up.  But let me tell you, I was blown away with the beautiful young woman that Madison has become, both inside and out.  I still get teary eyed thinking about her toast to the couple.

Ashlee had to visit with her guests after this so what else would you do but take some pictures with your Hubby and the infamous Kali L??

And finally, more shots of the wedding:

Isn't she just beautiful?!?!  They are currently off to Cabo on their Honeymoon and wish the two of them all the happiness in the world!

And that's a wrap!

Thank you for stopping by!

Northern Idaho/Spokane Part One

 Let me start by telling you that I absolutely fell in love with Northern Idaho - Coeur D'Alene was my favorite and we stopped at a resort in CDA to take in the most amazing views:

I think I am ready to move up there...

This location has the world's longest floating boardwalk, and they were also having a boat show over the weekend.

Oh, and let's not forget about the Pirates of the Coeur D'Alene... :)

These next few photos were taken in Liberty Lake, WA, where the wedding was held:

Wedding prep - the flowers weren't out yet but I thought this was the cutest little setting!

More pictures coming tomorrow with the beautiful, blushing bride!
