Halloween Dresses

I picked up this fabric a couple of weeks ago and decided to make a dress out of it.
I used Everyday Chaos's Apron Dress Tutorial and am totally in love with how they came out!

The girls couldn't stand the bows in front so I stuck them in back... I will have to find a new way to tie them so they don't flop :)

Two beautiful girls, Two Beautiful dresses!
 And the best part is my models work for Fruit Snacks!

Adam's new job comes with LOTS of little perks...
You know, things like very important conferences in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Very important conferences you get to bring your wife to!

Our hotel room was simple but very nice!

Our balcony overlooked the parking lot although the hotel would swear it was an "island view!"

While Adam spent time in meetings and schmoozing, I spent time here...
I am fairly sure I got the better end of the deal!

Our hotel from the beach.
Since it was out of season travel combined with the fact that it was a private beach, there were very few people.

We made a trip to Harbor Town and I wasn't impressed. The boats were neat but that was about it.
We didn't stay long.

We felt our time was better spent winning iphone chess on the beach :)

And this little guy was my absolute favorite part of the hotel.

I lovingly refer to this as the "Bird Bidet"
He just looks so happy!

I wasn't able to take pictures of all the fabulous times I had.
The lounging by the pool reading books that have been on my list for three years...
Enjoying dinner with delightful people...
and the ultimate massage in a cabanna overlooking the beach that my dear sweet husband insisted I have.

I told him coming home could not possibly be as fun and tried to talk him into shipping the kiddos to us, but he wouldn't go for it.
Little did he know, it would start raining on our trip home and has yet to stop.
Hilton Head, we miss you!

She Has Her Own Style...

"Georgia Kate, it's time to get dressed! Gracie is coming over to play!"
She took off to pick out the perfect outfit and came back with Caleb's old Woody costume.
And a pair of safety glasses.
And, she insisted on wearing them.

What a Wedding...

Last weekend, I had the honor of being a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding.
Due to time constraints (and an anxious Groom) she only had a short time to plan.
Somehow, she pulled it off and had one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen!
Heading out to the Rehearsal Dinner...
The morning of the wedding, we all headed out and got our nails done.
By the time we got to the wedding site, we were all half asleep!
The beautiful bride doing her best to stay awake!

Jamie is Amber's cousin. She is fabulous and came to fix one of the bridesmaids hair and ended up doing ALL of our hair! Thanks Jamie!
Amber's Aunt and cousin, Hali

Amber's Mom getting her hair done...
On a side note, can you tell it was a game day?
Amber had a hard time making a shoe decision for her bridesmaids, so she handed the task off to her (now) mother-in-law. By the time they get them picked out and dyed, it was time for the wedding.
We tried them on for the first time for the rehersal dinner.
For the most part, we underestimated our sizes.
And the dye had not completely dried.
We had shoe tatoos by the end of the night :)
All of the bridesmaids (left to right): Sarah, the new sister-in-law; Hali, cousin; Bonnie, cousin; Mandi, cousin; and Me, friend. Hali, Bonnie, Mandi and I spent most of our summers growing up together.
After we finished pictures, we headed back upstairs to the bridal suite and played papparazzi while Amber and Brad finished up pictures.
Congratulaions Amber and Brad!

What Does The End Of Summer Look Like?

Here, it looks like the last splash in the big water bucket...
and eating mud pies...

When It Gets Quiet...

...most people relax and enjoy the silence.
...Sip coffe and revel in the peace.
Mommies, on the other hand, go looking for the disaster their children are creating.
Most of the time they find things like this...
All before you even have time to dress them!
