A Baby Shower for Jacqueline

Rachel, Marcy, Lori, Allison and I hosted a baby shower in McKinney for Jacqueline last weekend, and we had so much fun! Baby Henry is due Sept 22, and we can't wait to meet him. Jacqueline's dad painted letters for Henry's room, and Jacqueline brought them to help decorate the table. Henry got tons of great loot!...including a UT onsie. Philip will be stoked about that. :)I LOVED this little bath robe and slippers set. It was adorable. I got to talk with Maria, who I haven't really seen since the beginning of college. We both went to TCU after going to high school together. It was great to catch up!You gotta have a potty!!Jacqueline explaining how the "fuzzy buns" cloth diapering system works. I also loved this sweet rocking horse Henry got from Pottery Barn Kids. The hostesses also got Jacqueline a neclace with Henry's initial on it. Jacqueline with her mom, Mary, and Philip's mom, Ruth. Both grandmas can't wait for Henry's arrival!Another picture with the Hostesses and the mommy to be. And of course, we had to cheese it up a bit. :) Notice the heart on her tummy. For favors, we gave out flavored popcorn from a little store in downtown McKinney called Mom and Pop-Corn. It was blue raspberry and vanilla. Sounds strange, but it was super addictive. Jacqueline, modeling her new "H" neclace. And of course, I had to post a picture of the beautiful Hydrangeas we had. They're still looking beautiful, sitting on my dining room table.
We had such a good time, celebrating the next phase in Jacqueline and Philip's life! We love you guys!

Mommy Make-over

A couple of weeks ago, my mom mentioned that she liked my eye-shadow, and was asking about what kind I use. (M.A.C. Love it.) She was talking about wanting to try out some silver/grey shadows, so I offered to come over and try my best to give her a make up make-over. Granted, I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to make up... but like all girls, I have fun playing with it - especially now that I have all the fun brushes and about 12 different eye shadow colors. What started out as a girlie make up night ended up turning into a family get together, which was great! Ross, Jessica, and of course Logan came out to my parents house and I cooked my now "famous" rosemary baked chicken, with roasted rosemary potatoes and steamed asparagus. Apparently it was a success, since I saw all empty plates. :)

Jessica was our "Before" and "After" photographer for the make over. Here's "Before..."And "After"... I'm clearly not a professional make up applier (there's gotta be a better word for it than that...) but I thought it looked pretty good! Definitely heavier eye make up than she normally wears, but I told her it would be good for all those dates my dad can take her on! With her eyes closed (on purpose) to show off those smokey eyes! Logan and Ross waiting in line for their make overs. Nah, just dessert. :)

A couple of weekends ago, Logan and I went to 3Hundred with Mike and Leanne. 3Hundred is this place with black light bowling, an arcade, pool tables, and a bar. Like Chuck-E-Cheese for grown ups. My fancy bowling shoes...
Leanne, getting ready to bowl...Mike's turn...Leanne... I tried to take this picture without the flash, but that didn't turn out so well...Me bowling - I did alright!Logan was really, really good. He even beat us all playing left handed. :)
We had such a great time "playing" with our friends. Mike and I even competed in a game of Dance, Dance Revolution. Would you believe he beat me??? Who knew Mike was such a Fred Astaire! ;)
