playing catch up

so...i wanted to share these with you...they're so cute! i made them for father's day, since most men love grilling out (although our family had mexican food) i found the idea here.

then we drove to indiana for a wedding. ryan and claire tied the knot and everything was wonderful! claire looked beautiful! and as you'll see, it was quite the dance party! :) and it was really fun seeing all of our friends from anderson...

and lastly, this is what i came home to! woo hoo! i can feel my thumb turning green as we speak (well, as i speak and you read) we planted these hydrangea plants about a week ago and i was really worried that they weren't going to make it...its already in the low 100's here and hydrangeas like shade...but even with shade its still so hot! keep your fingers crossed!

...but then i saw this...not too hot (or maybe too hot, literally)

that is what we've been up to lately...i'm gearing up for blackberry season, which will hopefully start in a week or so, so make sure you come out!

its a good day when...

my boy roger makes history! roger federer finally won a french open! yay! he has now tied pete sampras for number of major titles and as become the sixth man to complete a career grand slam! roger federer is probably my favorite tennis player and its so fun to see him win. he was overcome with so much emotion and it was a sweet, sweet moment. way to go rog!

i actually did it!

i gardened this weekend! i never would have pegged myself for the gardening type, but aaron and i decided to get some flowers (real ones) to replace the fake ones in our flower box! AND we bought some leafy things and some more flowers to plant around our tree in the front yard! i placed all the flowers where i wanted them and when i went inside aaron moved them all! ahh! so they weren't spaced out evenly anymore and that kind of thing drives me crazy...i don't know, maybe its the control freak in me...but i had to fix it and make them all evenly spaced! so i went in and put on my gardening clothes and got to work! the front of our house is looking much better! now all we need is a hydrangea creeper!
