These are the cutest things I have ever seen!!! I could fill a whole room with them... what would I actually do with them-who knows! Check out the cuteness...

Go to Mochimochi Land to see for yourself!

Target deals

I got some really good deals in the Target clearance rack! I bet you could find some goodies too :)

Winston loved my dress as much as me! I can tell this one is going to be a summer staple.

I just love the airy feel to this dress. The $5 price tag could help :)

Only $4.98 for a go to sweater on chilly nights. This color will help jazz up a simple black dress.

This tee is the perfect canvas for a few fabric flowers or fabric add-ons. For $2.50 I will be updating it to something wonderful!

Four Ingredient Dessert :)

I love cooking and enjoy it even more when there are just a few ingredients. This simple Frozen Lemonade Pie is so easy to make and taste delicious! I made this yummy pie for my neighbor who is pregnant with a little boy. I can't imagine how hard it is to be on bed rest for two months... I wanted to make her life just a little bit easier!

Now on to the recipe-
All you need is
*one can of sweetened condensed milk
*one can of frozen lemonade
*one container of Cool Whip
*one graham cracker pie crust

(Notice I buy store brand everything!)

1. Combine the condensed milk and thawed frozen lemonade

2. Fold in the Cool Whip. It will make a TON of filling!

3. Fill in the pie crust with the filling and freeze until serving :)

Stark's Birthday!

Last night we went out to dinner to celebrate our friend Stark's birthday. He was popular enough to have 27 people come celebrate the big 27. We had a blast trying a new Mexican restaurant in town. With that many people there it was difficult to talk to everyone, but we did meet a sweet couple with a little girl named Charis. Here are some of my favorite pictures from that night...notice there are none of me and Matt! owell!

Candid picture of Matt and Kyle. These boys are the best of friends and are lucky to have each other. With Kyle, Matt would been miserable listening to all my school talk!

Mary is exhibit A of why tanning bed accelerator should not be applied while in the real sun! Gotta love her!

Sandy and Stark using their wedding cake cutter to cut the birthday cake. Gotta love the prom pic style!

Can you smell cake?? Sandy and Stark posing for a quick picture. They are adorable!

My sisters will share a room, my parents will have a suite, and we will have our own room. It will be so wonderful to have no work, no worries, no problems! I am most looking forward to the amazing food! I don't think I will even leave the ship :)

Summer Weddings...

Christine and I

The lovely couple!

Matt and his boys dancing!

Brooke, Christine, and I

are my favorite! I just love the idea of two people madly in love, beautiful flowers, cute summer dresses, and great food.

Our friends John and Lindsay got married in Rock Hill, SC this past Saturday. Matt was a groomsman so I got to sit with my friend Brooke. The reception was at Winthrop in a beautiful hall. It was absolutely gorgeous with all the light coming in through the windows. Lindsay looked like the perfect bride!

We all of Matt's childhood best friends there, it was a wild time. The boys were all grooving and being there typical selves! I can't wait for us all to get together again.

Sex and The City 2 ?

Blogger friends... I need your help!

I have not been able to see the Sex and the City sequel yet! I am dying! Please let me know if it worth the hype. I need to be put out of my misery!

Close up (not a good one, but I tried!)

After seeing these beauties up close on my good friend Ashlee over at Pretty in Pink, and Orange too! I knew it was love at first sight. I did not go get them right away because Ashlee said she had to wait MONTHS to get them. I eventually forgot about them, but them I found them again. My good friend over at The Cobia Family got some as well! I went out that day and ordered them from Handpicked. I will be sporting them at a friend's wedding this weekend. I can't wait to show them off!

I heart weddings !

My fam, Matt, and I ventured to the great state of Wisonsin for my cousin Jenny-Rae's wedding. She looked absolutely beautiful on her special day. Her and her husband Matt are such a cute couple. I am beyond happy for them!

The wedding was a gorgeous wedding with a cocktail hour following and then a sit down dinner. There was great music, dancing, and love. Here are some of the pictures I managed to get!

Can a birthday be celebrated a month late?

Since I was on a short leave of absence from the blogging world... I didn't get to share my birthday party with you! Here are some pictures of the party my sweet hubby threw at our house! Welcome, come stay awhile...

My sister came all the way down from Clemson! I was so excited to play with her!

Matt doing the Captain pose with my good friend Sandy's baby, Reece. He barely let anyone else hold Reece... can we say baby fever much!?!?

Mary and Christine relaxing on the deck. Mary made such to take Reece from Matt and get her baby turn in!

Ashlee even made the party too! I wish her "friend" could have made it too! She is such a sweet girl and always there for my special occasions!

These red velvet cupcakes were a birthday gift from Matt. He actually went blog hunting and found someone to make me personalized cupcakes. I can't ask for a sweetest husband! The cupcakes were heaven in my mouth!


Just for the record I am back blogging world. Oh how I have missed you!

Oh baby baby! I love the smell of this...

Brown Sugar Body Scrub!

I am going to be visiting Matt's family this weekend to celebrate his sister Hannah's graduation. I hate going somewhere without bringing something so I decided to make a body scrub for his mom. It turned out so yummy, I had to stop myself from eating it... literally!

Here's what I needed:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup regular sugar
vanilla extract
olive oil

1. First mix the sugars together, mush any lumps out. Yes, really mush it good!

2. Add a pinch and a dash of cinnamon.

3. Add a splash of vanilla extract for some tastiness

4. Add 3/4 cup of olive oil

5. stir it all together then store in a cute airtight container.

I just had to add the bow! They are ready to be given as gifts! I hope the MIL likes it as much as I do! Trust me, if you make some you will be addicted to!
