bachelorette, father, baby, garden, fire

i'm willing to bet you've never seen a better title than this one. but i guarantee you, they go together. well, here anyway.
this weekend was definitely one for the books. it was lauren's bachelorette party and it was simply PERFECT!  we started with a lingerie shower on friday night with a full day saturday. it began with a pole dancing class, dinner at the hard rock cafe, the improv comedy club to see ralph harris, and then a night until the wee hours of the morning at the bars. 

i am by far the most uncoordinated person ever and my signature dance includes 
pointing my middle fingers out, 
shaking my hips like a grandmother, 
and doing the occasional kick when i've had enough to drink. 
to say i was terrified of the pole dancing class is an understatement.

however, if you learn ANYTHING from this blog, it's this: pole dancing classes with a bachelorette party are one of the most fun things i've ever done in my life. at one point, i even said "this just feels so natural" ...and then i perfected the fireman's pole routine. 

this fellah in the middle is the comedian, the hottie with the veil is the bride-to-be on july 14th, and the red striped hottie is the pregnant former bridesmaid who will have a baby boy on july 15th. hence, the former bridesmaid position.

father's day was celebrated with mi padre and i love him dearly! to the best friend a little girl could ask for. i've said it before and i'll say it again... 
daddy, you're the inspiration and the reason why 
my sister and i chose such wonderful men to live with
 for the rest of our lives.

my maid of honor and my ring bearer. 

A NEW BABY!!!!!  my brother in law (taylor), has a brother named robbie. in this picture, it's the beautiful family of robbie, his gorgeous wife elizabeth and their BRAND NEW BABY, LOCK!!  i couldn't be happier for them and adore them. 

i did it! i did it!  this is my backyard. it used to look like a jungle with no end and no beginning.
after numerous hours and a lot of money to home depot, johns brother, brian, and i mastered the backyard i am SO HAPPY!  i'm growing six different flowers that i don't know the names of and some veggies & herbs: tomatoes, basil, cucumber, bell peppers, and mint! 

we already had a fire pit but it was a poor excuse and looked like a rednecks outhouse. so with a shovel, bricks we already had, some extra stone, and a lot of sweat, brian and i also redid this beauty. i am so excited that this house is really coming together.

so here's to a productive monday to begin another wonderful week!

ps - i created a goal to run at least 10 miles a week (have i mentioned i am a terrible runner and i hate it?) and i'm glad to say i completed the goal last week and i'm well on my way this week. go me!

what's your summer goal?
