torry pie
I just cant get enough of him! I love him to pieces.. but you already know that, because I tell you that all the time! he is such a little doll. and teething like mad.. cant keep his fingers out of his mouth!
over the stove
so lets see what did I do this weekend. Yesterday I worked on invitations for jennifers bridal shower and also went to a bridal shower for a girl I work with. I also made a crown and took it over to my step granddaughter! Im not sure I told you, but Jennifers husband came with two sweet children! theyve been staying with Jen and tony on the weekends and I finally met them last weekend.. Carson is in 5th grade and is very handsome. Hes the quiet one, then theres 4 year old Ella and lets just say shes in charge! she is adorable and I thought she needed a princess crown so i made her one. I needed a princess friend, so I'm thinking her and I will be good friends!

This morning Jens sister in laws and Bethany came over to work on plans for Jennifers bridal shower. I think we have that all in order and it will take place on June 11th. its going to be a big shower. They have planned to say their vows again with a minister and have a reception on aug 28th at the beach! ummmm... over 200 people invited to their "little party." PRAY IT DOESNT RAIN !!!!

we had company all day today. starting with this morning. Jens husband also came over and worked around my pitiful garden! (he says he stalks my blog... so Thank you Tony Trupo!)

I made a huge pan of lasagna and a salad and all the kids were here for dinner. And they are all insane I think.. eiy yie yie!
I picked lots of little bouquets for around the house.
on the table
I love this time of year when the lilacs and lilly of the valleys are all in bloom.. they smell soooo good!! they wont last long though, due to all this freaken rain... forcast reads 10 more days of rain! Im not kidding.. just doesnt seem fair when some of you are in desparete need of rain.
cupcake lights!
In the crafty department, I made this cupcake lights this morning. they are really cute. the pics dont do them justice. I did make somethings this past week for swaps that I am dying to show you but I cant yet.. maybe next week after theyve been mailed and received.
a busy place!
oh.. and I also managed to do a bunch of cleaning this weekend.. but still have so much more to do. My bedroom is a disaster and our windows need to be cleaned... badly...

one in every crowd

OK.. thats all folks... I'm exhausted. I think I'm going to hit the couch and read a little bit of steven tyler!

toodles and have a great week!!

Viv, your family sounds like a lot of fun, and that grand baby is looking soooooo.....cute. Isn't the teething stage fun? Everything goes into the mouth. Our little Knox is now getting a couple more teeth. I just love the little smile with teeth. You lucky girl those flowers are beautiful, at first I thought they were fake. Have a great week. Hugs, Diane

I love seeing your studio. I had so much fun peering at all the details/items in those studio pictures. AND your cupcake lights are ADORABLE!!!! I might need to take a closer look. Perhaps, Josie needs some of those for her upcoming birthday party!!!

Sounds like a busy, but fun weekend. Can't wait to see what new goodies you've been up to. Have a blessed week ahead.

SO much going on, Viv! What a fun life you have! That little guy is so sweet--how do you get anything done?!

LOVE lilacs & lily-of-the-valley--two of my very favorite flowers--your bouquets are gorgeous...

What a beautiful craft room you have! Love those cupcake lights--great idea!

Wishing you a fabulous day, my friend!

It sounds like you had the perfect "Viv" weekend. Your kids, Torrie Pie, crafting and food. Can't get better than that! Though I can understand why you are tired! I liked seeing your crafting space, very pretty with all the pink.
Have a great week!

What a beautiful boy that Torry is!! Grandsons are wonderful, dontcha think? Ours are supposed to come this weekend and I can't wait to see them. We havn't seen Charlie and Miles since the week after Christmas. Much too long!! You are so lucky that your gang lives near by. I love the picture of your porch swing. I put a quilt and pillows on mine, too. It's one of my favorite places to hang out. Yes...Spring has been so soggy. I guess we should be thankful we've not had any tornadoes. Can't even imagine!
Have a great week Viv!

It sounds like your days have been busy but filled with family and fun! Your flowers look so beautiful, I love lilacs and lily of the valley too. I think ours are just about ready to pop. The lily of the valley always takes a but longer though. Your craft room is so fun, and the lights look awesome. I hope your week is off to a great start.
