Memorial Day Weekend

Katie’s Shower

A few weeks ago some friends and I hosted a Bridal Shower for our good friend Katie.  With the wedding only a few weeks away, I thought I’d post some photos from her day of getting spoiled.  We had so much fun and even though 15 people in our condo was tight, we all had a blast.  It was so great spending time with friends and meeting new ones, I can’t wait for the big day!Katie'sShower-7 Katie'sShower-8Katie'sShower-4Katie'sShower-5 Katie'sShower-1 Katie'sShower-3 Katie'sShower-6 Katie'sShower-2Katie'sShower-11 Katie'sShower-9Katie'sShower-14 Katie'sShower-15 Katie'sShower-17 Katie'sShower-19 Katie'sShower-12 Katie'sShower-13 Katie'sShower-20 Katie'sShower-18 Katie'sShower-21 Katie'sShower-16 Katie'sShower-22 Katie'sShower-24 Katie'sShower-25 Katie'sShower-26 Katie'sShower-23 Katie'sShower-27

Link Love

Finally Friday!  This cold weather we’re having this week has made the days just crawl by.  No big plans for us around here this weekend.  A little home maintenance and MAYBE some painting…we’ll see how motivated we get.  Thank you so much for reading.  Hopefully this little burst of posts helps jump start me back into regular writing.

Without further adieu, here are some links I was crushing on this week…

I follow a lot of photography blogs and this GORGEOUS recent wedding (of the famed and uber wealthy Ridinger family) posted to one of them is the most over the top extravagant glitzapalooza’s I’ve ever seen.  Here are parts two and three.  That headpiece!!!  Enjoy the eye candy.

I only have two years left to accomplish this, but I’d love to carry this excellent advice into my 30’s.

Very cool project.  A photograph of 4 sisters taken once every year for forty year years.

A mean video, but I still find it funny.  I don’t feel bad about it.  Paula Deen and Oprah at their finest.

I posted The Pregnant Husband on Facebook a few days ago, but it bears repeating.  My favorite internet find since What Should We Call Me.

UNBELIEVABLE.  These three must have a new lease on life.

So creepy I can barely watch, and yet strangely endearing.  The spider that just couldn’t hide.

This one’s for the boys.  Hilarious, laugh out loud, bad lip reading of NFL players.  “I found Fido!  I found Fido you guys!”

Have a great weekend everybody!  Also, you can follow Midwest Mountainess and be notified by e-mail every time I post.   Just click follow me in the upper right corner.  It’d be much appreciated!

Things I Don’t Understand.


This.  Exactly THIS is why I moved away from Minnesota.DSC_4244 DSC_4256 DSC_4259 DSC_4260

All of Denver got dumped on all day yesterday, which is May 1st.  As in May, which comes right before June.  On Sunday, it was over 80 degrees.  We lunched and dined on patios, went on a long bike ride, got a bit of a suntan and it was warm out until midnight.  Two days later it started snowing.  I’m over it.

So I’ve decided to pretend it’s not happening.  Here’s some pretty flowers with a snowy background.  Happy Thursday ya’ll.
