Glamping Baby Shower

I first need to apologize for the formatting - I'm typing this on my iPad due to horrible wifi. So right now this will be a lot of photos!! 

I can't believe my nephew is almost one! Where has time gone? Originally we thought he was going to be a girl & my ideas for a shower ran wild. But then we found out he was actually a he so I had to change plans....a little. My sister is super outdoorsy and active + I love the idea of glamping which gave me this idea! For food my momma suggested fondue since it has the feel of "roasting" without needing a fire - my mom has the best ideas!! She also helped make my doodles a reality as far as decorations & then dad did all the manual labor #familyteamwork 


Mom bought these great burlap table cloths! 

Thanks Dad for setting this up!

I absolutely loved how this turned out!! Several cousins came to help + I couldn't have done it without them - thanks Courtney, Mel, + Palmer!!

This Saturday my sister is throwing Lyle a camping party + it's going to be so cute! Haha no more glamping for us! 

Life Lately: July 2014

Wow! I had no idea that it's been so long since I last posted!

I thought when I had a part-time job I would post more often, but trying to post everyday was biting off more than I could chew. In May I switched to a full-time position, which has been great, but leaves less time to blog. 

We lost my grandfather the first of June. He has suffered several strokes five years ago. We were so glad to have him these last 5 years, but thankful his suffering his over. 

(At my sister's wedding in 2011 - how cute is that tuxedo shirt?!) 

Although we lost a loved one, we are gaing one!! I'm going to be an Aunt!! Even in my grandpa's last days he joked "I'm not old enough to be a great-grandpa!" The baby girl is due in Novemeber and I don't think I've been more excited about anything in my life.

(That's my big sis - by 14 months. We don't look anything alike!) 

Two big things are happening in my life next month...

1) I am competing in my first Triathlon! Sports/endurance isn't my best thing, but I figured why not. There's training to do everyyyyyyy day and you plan your day around it basically. It's on August 10, so it's getting close

2) The weeks before & after the Tri I will be moving to Atlanta!! I am still job hunting, so that's nerve wracking, but I'm hopeful I'll find something soon 

Well that's probably enough for now! 

Stay Fashionate!!
