Royal Wedding

I absolutely love this kind of BIG event!!! A real life Prince gets married...crazy to actually think about. She looked "perfect" Her gown was gorgeous with that amazing veil and to die for...a tiara!!! A real life crown. Yes, I woke up super early to watch the Royal Wedding and I'm so glad I did. It's so fun to watch stuff like this and think about how that's a totally different world compared to what I'm used to. They (the people) are so proud and happy for the couple, so many people came out to get a glimpse of history.
I kinda thought her gown would look something like this. Everyone kept saying "conservative with sleeves" so I'm glad she did these beautiful lace sleeves with the deep v-neck! I didn't think she would do big "princess" style, that's kinda out and Princess Diana already did that. She has a great figure and check out Pippa, so does she. Honestly, I wasn't crazy about her dress (she looked amazing) I just thought it kinda looked like a wedding dress of it's own. Not my fav but hey not my wedding.
Beautiful girl! Oh...I also didn't love her bouquet, I thought it was a little too boring. It looked like wild flowers or weeds she just picked and threw together. I like FLOWERS and I thought it should have been a little larger.
Fairy Tale
They are truly in love!
And....ta da! THE KISS
Can't forget the QUEEN!!!
They crack me up with these crazy fun hats. It would be so fun to get to wear these all the time to big fancy functions. I'm hating on the ALL BLUE attire...what on earth. She forgot wear she was going.
Victoria looked nice 
Why do they wear them right on their forhead???

here kitty kitty

have i ever said how much hemi is OBSESSED with kitty cats. well he is. terry brought a kitten to town thursday morning so i could take it to school to give to one of my little girls. it worked out perfect. i've been meaning to take ham out to the farm so he could see the babies but this was perfect. they got to hang out a few hours before i left for class. at first he wasn't too sure. he guarded the little kitty and never left his side.
it was pretty hilarious. the little guy would hiss at hemi and of course that broke hemi's little heart. (he gets his feelings hurt SO BAD and easy) but he wasn't giving up that easy.  
he finally left him alone and just laid beside the kitty. isn't he the cutest thing ever. i felt so bad taking him away from his momma but i know he has a great home (full of girls) ha 
so peaceful until we got to school and then he freaked OUT. he was shaking and crying, poor little man. i think his new name is snowflake, cutie!

my funky flower pots

Our neighbor had these concrete pots he was just going to throw away but first asked me if I wanted them. uh yeah....duh! They weren't in the {best} shape so I decided to paint them up really funky. Brand new these are like $100 each...wowza
So here is before
And here is after!!! I know they are really funky and don't match but that's what I was going for. They will look so cute once I get my flowers planted in them. And they match our furniture and outside cushions perfect. :)

with sprinkles on top

I had such a great birthday and so many cakes to go with it! ;) Thursday night I had a white rainbow cake we took to Monte NE Inn (from Harps) and it tasted so yummy!
Friday night we mixed it up with a cookie cake, ha! YUMMMMMM 
Today at school I had this cake in the TLC for all the teachers. It was chocolate with raspberry filling  and chocolate covered strawberries on top. SO GOOD!!! (From Ricks) side note: this was supposed to be my cake for Sunday night's dinner celebration but someone forgot to pick it up so I grabbed it this morning and we enjoyed it at school.
Ms. Tracy made our class "pinkalicious" cupcakes and read the book to us. Then all the kiddos sang me Happy Birthday, so cute. 
This was our backup plan for last night since my cake wasn't there and these were delicious!

Hoppy Birthday to me

The Easter bunny came this year and it was my birthday!!! My pretty Easter/Birthday flowers.

I had a great rainy birthday and Easter combo today. We didn't do too much this weekend just because the weather has been horrible but we still had a good time. I'm so ready for all of this weather to go away and bring the sunny spring days.

Mojito Night

We had a fun (kinda scary) night out lastnight to celebrate my birthday with some of our friends. We went to Mojitos, which is delicious but they have super STRONG margs.
Me with Allowayne
Yeah...Courtney and Michael got to come. I hadn't seen her since December when she had Jaxx. (Now I need to see him asap) 
Adrienne...she makes me laugh out loud. One crazy girl. She had to slip out a little early because she was terrified of the tornadoes coming. She wanted to get her car in the garage and get in the bath tub, ha. 
Of course my Cherrios came out on the tornadic night to celebrate with some yummy mexican food.
Monica was Adrienne's date, ha. 
My delicious cookie cake. Hemi enjoyed himself a little piece I dropped this morning. (Yes, I ate some for breakfast, it's my birthday. duh) 
I'm so over all of this horrible weather, I swear it's rained the past week and doesn't look like it's ever going to stop. I'm terrified of tornadoes, I can totally do without. Wes said lastnight he would build me a storm shelter when we build our house, perfect! How are we supposed to hunt Easter eggs tomorrow if it's going to rain all day long!!!
