good morning bloggy world!

what a weekend! Friday night was our girls night party. I think everyone had a good time. I forgot to take pictures though!! DUH!! (did I already post about that???) cant remember nothing these days I tell ya! oh I remember that I did, because in my last post I was trying to decide whether or not to go to the beach on sat!

so Saturday I did go to the beach and it was the best beach day of the year so far! the water was crystal clearall the way out to my shoulders I could see every ripple in the sand at the bottom! the swells were big and fun to play in and the water was the perfect temp! I went by myself which was totally awesome! I'm hoping to get another couple days in.. theres still a couple weeks left of summery weather dont ya think???? I'm hoping so! IN fact, if I can get a lot of stuff done this morning.. I might just take a ride there this afternoon! heehee!!

Yesterday Jen came over and we worked on flowers for her bouquet and for the girls corsages. I think the corsages are turning out cute. the two that I'm showing here are for Tonys sisters and have pieces of a dress that was their mothers in it. we're not so sure all the girls will all like these, they are a little more trendy then crafty.. but this is what were making. the wedding is very informal. The girls are all wearing pink sundresses and flipflops from old navy! and Jen is wearing a cute white sundress.

Jen worked very hard making flowers for her bouquet, but it isnt coming out how she invisioned it. It needs something. we will work on it more today. I like it much more this morning then I did at midnight last night!

okeedokie.. I've got to get moving here.. LOTS to do!! see yas later!

oh yeah! isnt Torry pie adorable???

I just love squirmy babies...he is a cutie! Those dimples would melt anyone's heart!
I love the rolled fabric flowers and how cool that they're made from dress fabric...a great memory. You are busy all the time but I'm glad you got to escape to the beach for some R&R time.
Have a great week Viv!

I LOOOOVE the wedding goodies, Viv!!! Pretty & feminine & FUN! As for Torry - well, he needs to come visit Aunty Kai! I HAVE to kiss those lil' cheeks!!! And I'm so glad you had a great beach day! I'm over here in hot old H-Town cheering for my friend who loves her beach time! You can cheer for ME if and when WE get some cool weather! That's MY addiction! Deal? LOVE YOU! P.S. Guess who had ice cold raspberry lemonade this afternoon? YUM!!!! And THANK YOU!

I'll be so anxious to see the wedding pictures. All the details are perfect. Beautiful corsages. I'm praying for good weather. Thinking of you! Hugs and kisses.

Samantha said...

Love the corsages...great idea! They would be so cute pinned to a cardigan later in the Fall.
The beach sounds fun...I can't imagine water that clear so far out!
Torry is TOO adorable!

I am sure there will be more warm days to come so you can get out to the beach!!


Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I was trying to figure out where that beautiful beach was you were visiting it doesn't say in your bio where you live. Well it sounded like the Carolina's maybe to me or perhaps Florida. Any water here you get into is only at the risk of death.

Malissa said...

I think the bouquet is looking great! Really fun and vintage-y. That Torrie pie sure is a doll!

Suz said...

Oh, yeah. He is about the cutest baby ever. You are a lucky grandma, Viv!
I think those bouquets are turning out wonderfully! So with it! And I love those bottles. Love what the girls are going to wear. My idea of what a wedding should be. I hope that when Katie gets married, this is how she does it! Very comfortable! Just keep going to the beach for a rest!

Lori said...

Torry is darling and so are the flowers! That is so wonderful that part of the mother's dress is included. Have a great weekend!
