Science Center Camera Adventure

It was time to use a Groupon (I absolutely LOVEEEE GROUPON) I got one for a movie at the Science Center and since Andrew was off school, it was perfect!

After the gym, we headed to the show. It was great and hardly anyone  was there.

This is one of Andrew’s favorite

Of course, I messed around with my camera…

I had no idea it could do so much…..

Question for you:

What kind of camera do you use?

What camera would you love to own?

Weekend Wedding

On Friday, Tabor and I headed to my friend Heather and Brian’s wedding at the Lemp Mansion here in St Louis. It was the PERFECT night for a wedding.

First, we dropped Andrew off at my parents, and of course we needed a “prom” picture haha

man. I look REALLY happy haha

Everyone taking their seats, the wedding is about to start

The bridesmaids. I either went to highschool and/or college with these ladies

The groomsmen. Don’t they look so nice?!?!

The bride! I met Heather in highschool and we were roomates in college sophomore year

Heather and Brian are absolutely perfect for each other

You may kiss the bride!

The newlyweds!!

Time to end the night 😦

The view from our room. The view of the Arch was incredible

Question for you:

Would you rather a fall or spring wedding?

Indoor wedding or outdoor?

– I LOVVE outdoor weddings. But you never know what the weather is going to do

Scavenger Hunt

After my tests the other day, I needed to get out of the house! But I wanted to make it fun for Andrew to walk around the neighborhood. Lucky for me, I had pinned this scavenger hunt. It was perfect!

We started by gathering our supplies:

-Printable sheet


-Bag for items

– Camera 🙂

Andrew had so much fun, he wanted to do it again tonight. I’m going to try and find another savenger hunt to print 🙂

Question for you:

What fun activity do you remember as a kid?

– Remember rock school that you played on the front steps? But my favorite, was riding bikes in the alley with all the neighborhood kids after dinner until it got dark

Its time for fall!

The weather here in St Louis has been absolutely gorgeous! So long 100 degree weather- HELLLOOO 70s!! haha.

Today, I was cleaning and picking up the house (Mr Flowers will be here Thursday!) and I decided to get out the fall decorations

Apparently, I don’t have very many…..

The candles for the mantel

These fake leaves go great with our picture!

Coffee table

Dinning room table

And of course the wreath for the front door. Now I need to put a nail in my brand new door (eek!)

I also have visitors in a few weeks (hint: tiffany and angela) and want the house all fancy for them too! They are coming for the rock n roll marathon.

Question for you?

– Are you ready for fall?

– Do you like to decorate?

My tummy goes through testing

The past few days I have been either working, or prepping for tests I had today. Because of my stomach issues, I have been getting tests for this and that to try and figure out what is going on. The good thing- everything is normal. The bad thing- I have NO idea what happened.

So now, we will just wait and see whats next.

These armbands are becoming a fashion statement in our house….

My first meal after almost 48 hours!!! LOOOOVEEEE panera!

Walking  to get Andrew from school (I couldn’t drive today either)

Got this pretty picture on the way

A nice note, from a nice boy

me ❤ mom

I have an IV infiltrated/bruising, so Ive been alternating from ice, to a heat pack

thank goodness for green beans

Besides the IV problem, I had a good experience. I just hope I don’t have these tests for sometime…

Question for you:

– What would you get if you hadn’t eaten in 48 hours?
