PSA: Unplug your toaster if you're going to throw it in the pool.

Happy Birthday Mona!

Friday was our good friend Mona’s birthday and this year we got to celebrate with her! 

Don’t worry people, it’s just water!  But of course Luke wanted to go for the shock factor, haha.

Welcome Home Decorations!

Well if you know me at all, you know I’ve been obsessed with decorating the mantel.  I think it’s because I didn’t have one in Virginia :)

Here’s a little something I made to welcome home our little girl (of course I didn’t take the picture when the balloons were full!)

I got the idea for these 2 pieces of art off of pinterest.  If you haven’t checked out that website yet, I highly recommend it! 

I made the baby stats subway art using a 12x12 canvas and my Silhouette.  Basically I cut the stats out of vinyl, put them on the canvas, painted 3 coats of pink over the whole thing, and peeled the vinyl up after the paint dried.  Cute huh??  I made the Bible verse art in photoshop and printed it with a coupon code I had for shutterfly :)

Luke’s coworkers sent us some cookies from Tiff’s Treats!  We had chocolate chippers, oatmeal raisin and sugar cookies.  I ate all the chocolate chip ones myself :)

Here’s the bow that was on our door at the hospital and we transferred it to our front door.  And you can see my new spring wreath that I made after my Easter peep wreath was such a failure, haha.

I promise I’ll post pics of Lucy Kate’s room sometime…it’s still in the works! :)

Last Friday, we headed to College Station to watch both Katie and Laura graduate from Texas A&M…Whoop!  Unfortunately for us, they graduated in two separate ceremonies, Katie at 9 and Laura at 2…so it was a LOOONG day!  At least we had iPhones & iPads to pass the time :)

Calvin was lucky enough to skip out on both ceremonies…I’m pretty sure he was thankful for that too!

Here’s a video of Katie walking the stage:

After Katie’s graduation we headed to Los Cucos to enjoy their famous Stuffed Avocados.  Both Mamaw and I love these and can’t find them on any other menu except Los Cucos, those other Tex-Mex places don’t know what their missing!

Then we went to take pictures at the big Aggie Ring and Calvin discovered his love for hanging on the handrail :)

After saying goodbye to the Hargroves, Luke dropped Lucy Kate and me back off at Reed Arena for Laura’s graduation.  The 2 o’clock ceremony was packed out, like the only available seats were behind the stage and big screen.

LK & I got there a little late and had Allyson come out to meet us.  On our way inside we found that they locked the doors, not allowing anyone inside, including Allyson who left the arena only 5 minutes before that.  Let’s just say I called Poppy and he went buckwild on the Door Nazis telling them we had seats and I obviously was holding a 2 week old baby in the Texas heat…So they reluctantly let us in, haha :)

Laura’s name was pretty far down the list, so we were able to score some better seats before she was called.  But they were next to some old ladies who were clearly being put out to allow us to pass. 

Unfortunately we didn’t have Luke with us to get a cool video, so all we have are fuzzy pictures :)

This is probably my favorite picture…out of all the time during the 3 hour ceremony, the family 2 rows down decided it would be best to have a 7th inning stretch during Laura’s stage walk.  I guess they didn’t hear us screaming for her…I mean come on!!

After packing Laura’s house up, we headed to Cotton Patch to eat some dinner before driving back to Austin.  Man it was a long day, we left Austin at 6:15 am and got back at midnight!  But it was a great time seeing our little sisters graduate!  Congratulations Katie and Laura!!
