Busy busy busy…broken record.

Let’s do a photo-dump to get back in the swing of things.  Today’s purge is ALL wedding prep ALL the time.

Time for the other side…

At home for refreshments and a quick Oscar snuggle before heading back to the madness.

Hanging the first of the ‘wedding balls’!  It’s all happening! : )

Slowly but surely progress is being made…

Photo-booth area.Yikes.  Still have a long way to go…

I think the fly tape adds a nice touch : )

This is not the first or last time this happened.

All manicured up for the big day!

Uncle Chad and Uncle Tim life risking.

Do not try this at home.  It’s very dangerous.

Wedding prep over…the morning of the wedding – view from my suite window.

The following are iPhone photo’s I took of some of the flower arrangements the day after the wedding.  They were so beautiful.

Wedding decorating was one of the funnest weeks EVER!  A lot went wrong, we came upon a lot of challenges, but it was so fun figuring it all out and making it work.  Due to my pride for the work that we all did that week, I wanted to post some photo’s (taken by Nick Wagner) of the end result.  Photo’s taken on a real camera.Following photo’s taken by my dear friend Lindsay of Lindsay Arneson Creative.


iPhone Photo Purging

If you didn’t know – this is going to become a regular blog feature.  I love love love taking photo’s on my phone.  They always (rarely) turn out SO WELL (average).  I don’t always lug my camera around but I ALWAYS have my phone.  My camera always seems to capture my life as I want to present it whereas my phone captures…life as it is.

This one is pretty wedding heavy.  As will be the next one.

The rules are as follow:

Please enjoy and refrain from judging.

Three of my FAVORITE girls on the drive to my bachelorette party in Steamboat!

Ashley and I drinking our favorite Vihno Verde by Aveleda (try it – delicious in the summer) at the condo in Steamboat.

My momma shopping in a beautiful boutique up in the mountains.
It’s photo’s like this why I live in Colorado.  I mean SERIOUSLY.  

Ashley and I in our brand new CO proud hoodies!

Marlo in her favorite spot in the house – the couch crack?First step in baking the lemon cookies for the wedding.
My wedding hair trial in good ol’ Fargo.  It was aqua net stiff and fell out after 20 minutes.   Hence I was forced to do my own hair.  

Can you tell I’m thrilled?  I guess in hindsight it wasn’t THAT bad.

Auntie Megan (will hate me for this) with her completed wedding ball!Busy wedding bee’s!  Nice ball Jerri ; )Hmmm.  Day two of wedding balls?  Megan and Heidi changed – Mom and Jerri the same??  Not sure.  WEDDING WEDDING WEDDING 

So many balls all over the place : )

Awwww.  Madigan and Apple spooning.  They’re coming to see me today!!!Miss Apple Bottom being a model.Freshly made table number tents.  They’re sparkly and fun – hard to tell in the picture.: )After my final dress fitting.  Titled “wedding madness is not for the fainthearted”.

Final dress fitting at L’Atelier Couture!  BEST shopping experience of my life.  The girls there (Amanda & Madeline especially) and my time at their gorgeous boutique are some of my favorite memories of wedding time.Getting the final adjustments made!  So excited!!!!   Momma learning how to hustle and bustle the Vera Wang…The completed bustle!  Swoon…

Three of my favorite pictures of Miss Livi (at the aquarium) in her cute little sailor outfit.

Me looking stressed, malnourished and pale with my tan and fabulous godmother AMY at the Disney store!  It’s all about us.
A farewell cocktail after my last trip to MN before the wedding.A real gem I found at the Minneapolis airport.  Laughed out loud.
Picture text from Vanessa after receiving her maid of honor dress in the mail.Marlo doing crack…again.  Pictures like this make me gush “ohhh wook at my widdle baby kitty kitty kitty” which make my husband fear for the baby talk someday.Clint, myself, ASHLEY (purple teeth), Danielle and Sean at THIN MAN having a blasty blast.My insanely in shape healthy eating freak of nature fit bestie Danielle.It’s an inside joke.  I bet you all (my four readers) feel SOOOOO left out ; )I’m going to get a phone call approximately one day after I post this from Jon threatening to shut down our internet if I keep posting photo’s of him.  I ain’t scurred.
