A couple of weeks ago, Colleen and I were so honored to be asked by a friend of ours to help her out with some calligraphy and photography for her precious son’s first birthday party. Lindsey is an amazingly talented hair and makeup artist and stylist and has a blog that you guys should definitely be reading. We have known her since she did our hair and makeup for Colleen’s wedding and I am here to tell you that she is every bit as sweet and charismatic in real life as she seems on her blog. Her house is seriously a dream and she put together one of the most adorable first birthday parties that you ever did see. For some fun Friday eye candy, do yourself a favor and go to her blog to check out the rest of this party.

Snow Much Fun To Be One First Birthday Party

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving everyone! We had a wonderful day with friends and family and I do believe I ate enough to survive me the rest of the week (she says and she goes to eat some pie for second breakfast.) Corey and I even did a little Black Friday shopping from the couch last night. Because I am not into crowds. Believe it or not, I am off to work but I wanted to post some of my favorite pictures from our Thanksgiving table. I can take little to no credit for this – other than arranging the flowers and taking the pictures. Meg did a beautiful job am I right?

Outdoor Movie Night
Monday, August 25, 2014
Luckily the rain held off this past Saturday so we could have our movie night outside, just as we had envisioned. It was a casual affair that basically consisted of blankets and pillows scattered about on the grass along with some of Colleen’s patio furniture and folding chairs brought by neighbors. We did make a few snacks and had a table that included some movie theater appropriate items. Colleen and Corey showed The Fantastic Mr. Fox, one of their favorite Wes Anderson movies, which ended up being a great idea since it was both adult and kid friendly. We borrowed the sound equipment, projector, and screen from their neighbor Jamie, who was also kind enough to come over and help set everything up. The screen he built himself from pvc pipes and a painters cloth. Now those are some serious DIY skills. Of course, in typical Colleen and Megan fashion, we neglected to take any pictures of the movie setup or any people during the party. Fortunately, Colleen was able to steal a photo of the kids around the screen taken by her neighbor Katie. Thanks Katie! All in all I would say it was a perfect evening to end the summer before school started again this week.
Colleen and Corey were pug sitting this week so Leila helped us get ready for the party. Mostly by making weird snorty noises and trying to trip us while we walked. Since she was a pivotal member of the party planning team, I am glad she could make a blog appearance.
