Mom's Wedding Weekend

My mom got married this weekend. Spending time with my family was long overdue so I was pumped to see every one. I decided to just post the pictures of weekend instead of hashing out everything that happened. The photos are a little blurry, I apologize. (For a little more detailed explanation of the weekend, go here to Leighann's blog)

Here is a picture of the grandkids and Mom and Neil.

Here again is how we get that picture.

Aunt Chrissy and Muriel.

The Plumlee family and the happy couple.

The kids had a pretend wedding.

Autumn is growing up.

 When Mom and Neil left, the real fun happened. The boys tried to go all around the table without it falling over. J.J accomplished it first.




The boys talking about blowing stuff up after the wedding because well, boys will be boys.

The weekend was great. I wish we had more time but I had so much fun.

Puppy sitting

I got to puppy-sit this adorable little thing the last few days. He is such a snugglebug. The best thing about puppy-sitting is there is no long-term commitments. You get your puppy fix and then you give him back ;) It's almost like having grandchildren.

Let's just say I didn't get much done the last few days because this guy kept trying to take naps everywhere I was. This was when I was trying to do crunches. How am I supposed to do crunches if you're having snoozefest 2012 under my back or on my arm? Dude....

Okay so his owners just got him on Friday and then I started watching him Saturday night so the jury is still out on his final name. Anyone got ideas? I think their names right now are Todd, Sam or Samwise (from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and Oliver but they'd probably just call him Ollie.

Pinterest Party

Okay so I didn't exactly do a craft from Pinterest but I did do a Pinterest inspired dyed egg.

I've really gotten into ombre-d things since being on pinterest. I love the contrast yet simplicity.
like in this:
This person actually did ombre eggs too but with not as harsh of a line. Here's how they did it.

Next week, I hope to have a more legit pinterest party ;)
Happy Friday!!!

Major Recap

Remember when I used to blog? Yeah me neither.
(I thought it was time to update y'all on some things I've done lately and then I ate a whole row of warm brownies and wasn't as motivated. So here is a shortened recap.)

Indiana is getting better to live in. It's amazing how much a place can change with some sunshine and new friends.

I've been traveling the last few weekends. Two weekend ago went something like this.
Left Saturday morning and heading south to pick up my dear friend, Jenelle, from the Indy area. We then headed North to Milwaukee!!! We had a blast all weekend. I dropped her off with her good friend who she hadn't seen in a long time and I met up with Adam. ( Jenelle and I met up the next day)

We had a FULL day.
(Remember my Saturday started at 6am and I didn't get to Milwaukee till noonish)
We saw the Hunger Games. (Loved it)
Walked around the mall and saw cool Marquette memorabilia.
Went to the Bucks Game.
Ate dinner.

Next day.
hit some golf balls with his friend. (He's teaching me how to golf. It's hard but fun too)

We got the jumbo bucket because we're serious about golf! (or there were 3 of us) this picture makes poor Adam look like he's struggling but really it was just timing of it haha

Picked up Jenelle and gave her the grand tour of M-town.
Saw Lake Michigan and played around on the playground and the pier.

Went an ate at this cool restaurant in the Third Ward and saw a ping-pong club called Spin. Seriously cool idea.
And then just hung out

was just chill
ate at Kopps Frozen Custard (Yummy burgers/fries/and custard)
got the tour of Marquette and then had to be on our way

It was a lovely weekend.

Then was Easter weekend. It was wonderful!
We played mini golf, hung out with friends and family, watched the Masters, and dyed eggs. Dying eggs was serious competition. Adam did Cubs, curling, and golf (shocker), I did ombre-style eggs with messages, and his sister, Sarah, did crazy designs. Sad I didn't get a picture of them all.
I'm sure we did other stuff but it was way chill compared to our previous jam-packed weekend so I don't remember much else.
