Wow... where did June go?? My mom just texted me asking if I still had a blog and I looked and realized I blogged twice in June. Pretty pathetic! Sorry to any of you out there still reading. I guess I should play a little catch up and post May in Pictures before getting to June. Hope everyone's summer is going well!
Cool Tuesday at the Arboretum with the Spazmatics playing. Not a bad way to spend an evening in May. Now however? Not so much. Triple digit heat makes outdoor concerts a no-go for this girl.
My mom wanted to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Arboretum for Mother's Day and they just so happened to have a preview the night the Spazmatics were playing. Two birds, one stone? Don't mind if I do!
I'm a dork, but this just made me smile. A lonely little flower was growing out of nowhere next to an abandoned retail space. A tiny show of stubborn beauty. It's the little things in life.
The baby of our group from college finally turned 30 on Cinco de Mayo. E has been loving the fact that she was still in her 20's when the rest of us had already turned the corner. Finally she's as old as the rest of us!
No Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without mustaches, right?
The boy that has been sending all the flowers. :) I'm not sure if it's sad or brilliant that this is the first photo of he and I together.
My mom sent this to me when she went to visit my niece. Miss Priss has gotten a little chunky! I love babies with squishy cheeks- especially this one.
When she sent the picture above, I was shocked at how much she'd grown in one month. I texted my mom one of the first pictures of her in her carseat to compare it to the picture above, and this was the exchange that resulted. :)
We went to the Rangers game and Too Tall Jones came walking in our suite out of nowhere. He was very nice and took pictures with everyone. I shook his hand and it was like shaking a baseball mitt.
Mother's Day brunch! We went to a wine tasting and dinner afterwards- not a bad way to celebrate. I hope it lived up to her expectations.
Moose just loungin'. I love this time of year when everything you plant is growing like crazy. My basil plant is already huge... I see a big batch of homemade pesto in my future.
More babies! Jules, one of my best friend's from college had a little baby boy in May. He is so cute and tiny- a little over 5 pounds. The doctor had warned her about the potential for a 9 pound baby, so needless to say- everyone was a little surprised when little Luke arrived barely pushing 6.
I flew to San Diego in May to surprise my best friend that lives in Phoenix for her 30th birthday. Her husband rented a house on the beach and it was such a wonderful relaxing way to spend Memorial Day weekend.
Sorry, I had to include one last photo of my sweet niece. I love this one so much- I just want to gobble her up!
