Happy Memorial Day

It's now time for a few of my favorites things,

barb-q-ues, tin foil dinner, picnics, drive-inn movie theaters, late night walks,
vacations and farmer's markets.

Guys, Where Are We?

Scott and I thought it would be super fun to hold our LOST party outside in the backyard. We have access to a projector and planned on showing it on a big sheet attached to our garage. The theme was Hurley and Libby's LOST beach picnic. Everyone was told to bring their own picnic lunch and blankets and pillows. Unfortunately for us, it was 50 degrees outside, so we had to move the picnic inside. So, we squeezed all 17 people inside our tiny, tiny house and had a great time.

I was so busy getting ready for the party, that I didn't actually take pictures during the party.


However, here are some photos of the decor, post LOST DAY.

Everyone got to pick a character's name tag

Lost quote game. Kim and Flavio trounced everyone with getting 13 out 17 right.
The prize? Dharma Chocolate, of course.

One of my favorites quotes,

"Baby, I am tied to a tree in the jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon
and a genuine Iraqi. Of course I'm serious.

Prediction Cards

Everyone received a Dharma gift bag

With LOST bingo and black and white "rocks"
Alana/Deboro and Dad both won this one.
Yay, more Dharma chocolate!

Dharma treats (because Peanut Butter was Claire's favorite)

"Hell of a book. It's about Bunnies."
Flavio won the grand prize with his prediction.

Flavio's prediction, 10% chance Desmond will become the new Smoke Monster
100% chance, I will be disappointed

Initially we were all a little disappointed, but now I love the Finale.

Love, love, love

Party Favors. I didn't mean to make the pins so large. I got confused on the size.

Thanks so much, Kim, Flavio, Dad, Mom, Marette, Kyle, Colby, Bruce, Lynette, Alana, Deboro, Elle, Dan, Tara, Spencer, Vickie, Kent, Audrey, Andrew and of course Scott!

We loved ending LOST with you!

The Island Wants You

It's no secret that I'm a huge LOST fan. Some people have Seinfield, some people have Sex and the City. I have Lost.

So, Scott and I decided to end the series right and throw a party. And since a finale only comes around once, we decided to have some fun. So, to start it off we had two invites.

Invite #1 was very mysterious.

Invite #2, was a Dharma packet, complete with boarding pass, instructions
and prediction cards.

The complete Dharma packet.

I got lucky when I found a two free Lost font families. From there I was able to create a Dharma stamp, which I pretty much put on everything.

Unfortunately, Approrpriate Today

Yeah, it is May 24th and yes, it is snowing. Hard.

Bring it, May.

Sure, Okay

I really want these Donna Wilson tea towels. I'll use his beard to dry my dishes.

Grilled Pineapple Tacos

After two weeks of food badness, I'm attempting to get back on track.

were really yummy tonight. The only thing is I forgot to read through the recipe where it says cook the onions for an hour. Oops! Otherwise, easy breezy.

Lucy and the Bee

The other day, in the middle of a photo shoot, I receive this text from Scott;

"You are going to laugh when you get home."

And I did.

Life doesn't get any sweeter than a silly little girl and giant bumble bee balloon.

Sometimes your up, sometimes your down

This week has been rough.

From sad news from dear friends to Lucy getting her first black eye, we have had more downs than ups.

In the spirit of looking at the bright side, here are some of the ups,

-planting more trees and flowers in the front yard
-watching Lucy fall in love with balloons
-learning that even though she can get hurt, she gets better really fast
-realizing that it is okay to slow down
-not only is it okay, it is kinda important
-learning to forgive myself
-getting a whole bunch of film back
-spending quality time with people I love

Meal Planning Fail

Remember when I said I was meal planning and being super healthy?

Yeah, that isn't happening right now.

Today I ate a root beer float for lunch and dinner.
