Irene in Pictures

We are safe but haven't had power since Saturday at noon with no real estimate on when it will return. Our neighbors tell us they were without power for 12 days during Isabel. Let's hope that is not the case this time! Here are some pictures from our experience.




Ready for the storm!




With loveys in tow!




Hurricane Supplies




Watching Calliou on the Ipad while Irene passes by outside





Not too bad!




This picture is minus a couple of large limbs that had already been removed but could have been so much worse. Several trees were down over roadways in our neighborhood.



Clean up




Sorting sticks...Camille organized them into piles: big sticks with pine tags, sticks no pine tags, pine cones and acorns!




Our nice neighbor let Michael borrow his tractor to help get up the debris.



Oh we bought this yesterday am, and have plugged in our refrigerator, tv, wireless internet, a few lamps. It is better than nothing. Not excited about my cold shower.




Lovey got wet and we had to hang to dry!



There have been lots of arts & crafts!
Cross your fingers our power comes back soon!

Bachey Weekend!


This weekend I am on a mini vaca in Tennessee (my second favorite home ha) for a Bachey party!
I will have tons of pics to follow when we get home... but for now....this is my view...


And this is the lovely "soon to be bride" we are celebrating for...


Me & Whitney :)


(with her fiance Brian)
How cute are they? Love them!

I love it here. If I could live here I would, literally tomorrow. I love the house we are staying in,  it is Whitney's future in-laws lake house.
We came here before for a mini girls vaca and I wanted to stay forever!

Today we are going to lay out, mess around, go to the outlets in Pigeon Forge and then out for dinner!

Hope you're having a great weekend!!

A  few picutres of my darling Clyde that I discovered on my cell phone....




Jumping out of the Crib Clyde...this is an old one that I never shared.




Dermabond Clyde....we are still waiting for it to fall off 9 days from the incident.




Car Climbing Clyde...notice how he is balancing on top of the steering wheel!
Be safe everyone!

A Football Birthday :)

This was a busssyyy weekend!

We celebrated my dad's birthday and it was so fun :) We had a little get together at our house and cooked, ate, opened presents, played football in the backyard, ate an amazing cake, etc! Ha!

I decided to go with a mini theme for this party... a KY Wildcat Football theme! How awesome is that? I'm pretty sure my dad loved it ;) And it was fun stuff I already had most of from previous football tailgates and parties!

Just some fun decorations!

I love these containers! You can use them for decorations, seasonal stuff (I'm thinking pumpkins for Fall, Christmas decorations, etc!) Or even food in them would be cute too! The front has the chalk board paint on it so you can write whatever you want! They came from one of my fave stores, House by JSD Designs on Deleware Ave here in Lex!

Ok ... I won't make you wait... I know you're all dying to see the cake!!! And it was a favorite that is for sure! Loved it, so cute... Confused Confections Bakehouse did an AWESOME job as always :) They are my very fave! If you haven't tried them yet you really need to! You will be so happy you did!!

Check out the UK Football Cake :)




How cute is that?? My dad was so surprised! I loved it!

Here are just a few more randoms from the night... I was skank-ti-fied so ignore please ha I had ran errands all day and then slaved over the stove (hahah Chris is laughing if he is reading this lol, but I really did cook and he helped :)  


My brother, Dad & me :)

It was a great night!! Besides the fact my babe was sick.. poor Chris... spent the night on the couch not feeling good, felt bad we had fun without him! :(
 
So with all this football talk, it got me soooooo excited for the upcoming games to start, tailgating, etc! We are going to the first football game in Nashville in a couple weeks and I can't wait!
 
I've already put together a cute outfit for the game...
