Monday Mayhem - 85 years

This weekend we all had a special birthday celebration for my Grandpa for his 85th birthday at one of our favorite restaurants, Capitol Grille! We had our own private dining room, visited several times with the head chef (pictured below) and got to taste several of his favorite recommendations for appetizers and desserts he personally chose and brought out to us!


The G's celebrating!



Grandpa's birthday was actually on Friday, so they celebrated with a cake from our family's all time favorite cake maker, Mrs. Lamb. She made my parent's wedding cake, and we have been buying cakes from her ever since.





These next few pictures are from a few weeks back. This is my dad and I fishing during the July 4th weekend. SuperStev, such a pro with the bass...



My mom and sis and I also did some baby shopping over the holiday weekend, and here I am, pooped from all the shopping, stocking up on nursery things! And being the purse watcher :)



While my mom was in town with me for a few days, she did some shopping for Stone while I was stuck at work. Here are some of her incredible goodies she brought me for the baby! The big dog is the twin of one I had growing up!

Aren't these shoes SOOO cute!?!

Again, you look stellar. Keep on trucking, mama!

I just loved the nesting stage: wondering what they would look like, what kind of personality they would have, how our life would shift to a new normal once they arrived...

washing, folding, situating....

You are in for the hardest job of your life....BUT the best job you will EVER have.

Just you wait and see!

That cake looks SO good! I "helped" my friend make a wedding cake (meaning I sat at her table watching her do all the work)and it was a LOT of work. I appreciate all the work that goes into a beautiful cake now!
