here & there.

jay and i have done a bit of traveling over the last two weekends.  we went to nashville for a wedding- our friend angie got married june 5th.  she was in our wedding and jay was an usher in hers.  it was a quick but good trip back "home."

angie is on the far right.  (couldn't resist posting one of our pics!)

this past weekend we went to kingsport.  it was time for reunions on both sides of the family.  it was a busy weekend but without the long drive.

we did not take a lot of pictures at either event, but i'll post what i have...

fancied up for angie's wedding (i did have on make-up... i think i sweat most of it off... outside wedding at 6pm.  it was only 96 degrees F!)

must be blurry because it can't handle the "hunka hunka burnin' love" (what the chalkboard says) 

the flash darkened the view of the happy couple cutting into their cupcakes... check out the icing!

aunt pam took this for me... and didn't tell anyone she was taking it. 

cousin couples- gurnee & amber with me & jay

and just because you love them...
sweet pets

"her majesty's shoe hammer"

"Got a picture to hang? Got a nail to bang? What's a princess to do when she's only got a shoe? Her Hammer to the rescue. It works and looks good too. A shoe that's strong and sensible. A tool that's indispensable!"

That is their actual slogan... And it really works, too.  I was finally hanging our mirror over our mantle, three years later, ahem... and I couldn't find our hammer.  But Mom had gotten me this handy little shoe hammer for Christmas.  Well, it works like a charm!  No woman should be without one.
