My California Tea Bridal Shower

There is only one word to describe the CA shower that was thrown for me over Memorial Day weekend: 

I can't even begin to thank the hostesses Auntie Robin, Auntie Betty and Lisa.  They did such an incredible job with every last detail.  I've never been thrown a party quite like that - well to be honest besides birthday parties when I was a kid, I've never been thrown a party. Period.  

Every last detail was thought of, even down to sewing table toppers and outdoor cushions that matched my wedding colors! I am so lucky to be joining such a thoughtful and talented group of women next month.  Scott's family could not have made me feel more welcomed into the "Lee family."

I can't even describe how wonderful everything is without writing a novel on here, so here are a few of the pictures I stole from Lisa (yes, she not only hosted and helped prepare for the shower, she was also the photographer and dessert artist :) )

Auntie Robin even had a menu!
Future family! 

Whoever made these cucumber sandwiches - I need this recipe!!  They were incredible! Auntie Betty made four different loaves. The Lee family specialize in baking among many other things.

Lisa is such a good photographer!  I'm so glad my family traveled with us to CA.

Great friends joined in for the fun!  I have some of the greatest! 
With my hostesses! Thank you all for making me feel so special ladies!

Oh, and I can't forget... this was my dessert... crazy right?

New Tricks

Sure she looks sweet and innocent, however this creature is anything but. She is sneaky and somehow accomplishes the oddest things.

These are Smokie's latest tricks:

1) She will sit in or around the bath tub and cry. She will continue to cry (loudly) until we turn on the water for her to drink, play in, and look at. This is my mom's fault for teaching her this trick. Sadly, Smokie does not understand that unlike Snoop, she is a cat, and should not be drinking from faucets.

will cry for up to one hour... it has been tested.

2) She likes to carry things. She will carry large or small objects throughout the house. This started with carrying her toys around the house like her prey.

It has now it has moved onto wedding party favors, papers, pens, laundry and most recently.... a loaf of bread.

She managed to bring the bread out of a bowl, off of a table and over to the bottom of the stairs. I'm sure if we had given her more time it would have ended up in our bedroom as this is where she brings all of her treasures.

3) Climbing. We've never seen her do it, but the paw prints on the sides of the fridge give her away.

4) it's hairball season...

How does so much stuff come out of such a small creature?
