Sexy Tea PaRtY.....

This little Tea Party was a while ago, but then its been a while since I posted last!

A few of our friends decided to throw a Sexy Tea Party for one of our last friends getting married and it turned out ADORABLE! I was in charge of food so I did my research on Tea Party food so here is what I made:

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches, Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches & Chicken Almond Tea Sandwiches and they were delicious!

I also made homemade chocolate chip scones from SCRATCH! This was a BiG deal for me cause I dont bake. Again.....yum!

The decorations were AmAzInG! Jamie and Mandee did such a cute job.

Here are our cute friends all dressed up! We all wore black and white with hats and gloves. The Bride is in the white shirt......
We love you Jennica......

Viva Las Vegas

Brian and I took a much needed vacay ALONE for the first time in a few years! We headed to Las Vegas the end of July and had a BLAST! We sat by the pool each day and had tons of fun just sitting! I love Pina Coladas so I Brian goes and buys me one that costed $12.00 and it tasted horrible! One sip and that was all I could do. What a waste! I could have bought two shirts from Ross for the price of that one drink!

This guy tried his best to totally relax but he just couldn't do it! He ended up working and being on the phone part of the trip. But then I realized that because of his hard work we get to go on vacations! How thankful I am for a husband that works so hard and still makes the time to play with us.

I think one of my favorite parts of the trip was all the amazing restaurants! We ate the BEST food! This restaurant was called Del Toro and it was decicious favorite!

You know.....sometimes you gave to grab life by the horns. Cheesy! I love it! Ultimate man picture.

We went to our first show and fell in love with it! We now are determined to see many more Vegas shows! La Reve was absolutely incredible!

Until Next Time.............

Pow Mow

The Whole ARNOLD family decided to take a little vacay to camp (hotel style) at Powder Mountain. That is exactly how we hotels!


The kids loved throwing rocks into the lake.....especially Drake. (I had to put that because it rhymed! )

Drake and his cousin Rock loved the 4-wheeler! They had to be on it at all times!

The Favorites

FAVORITES! Here is just a few.....if you cant find the little man he can usually be found in this red chair with a book. He is so into books! He loves them! After every turn of the page he will do a little giggle and it makes us laugh. He loves to look at himself after he is all ready for the day and say "cheese" in the mirror. This is his cheese face and I LOVE it! And of course I had to put a picture of us because "Emy" (Aka Mom!) is his most favorite of all!


I put Drake in swim lessons this year. I had a blast but I'm not sure he did! This was the day of his graduation and by the look on his face you can tell exactly how he feels about it! He did NOT like his teacher! One to many dunks and he had it with her!

It's ALL about Drake these days!

Font size

Where in the heck have we been theseFont size days?? I have a lot of catching up to do! Our most recent event was the wedding of Brian's brother Taylor and his cute wife Paige!

All the Groom's Men

The Beautiful Bride Paige

What Studs they are! Drake and Rockwell

The funny thing about this tree is that I remember climbing it when I was a little girl! So I could not pass up the chance to get some pictures of Drake doing the same thing! OK...he didnt climb it!

Drake and Dad at the Gateway

Like I said! Its ALL about Drake these days! He is getting so BIG and so CUTE! He is saying lots of words which crack me up everytime he says them! I make him say things ALL day long! He is saying mom, dad, dog, banana(nana), please(peees), baby, go, cat, Jesus, papa and thats all I can think of right now! He loves to play with his cousins and he loves to be outside.

These pictures are hilarious! He loves to play with daddy! Everytime Brian lays down on his stomach he does one of two things....he will pull his hair or get on his back for a ride! When he gets on his back he'll say " go, go" and Brian takes him for a crazy ride!

Drake has finally gotten used to the grass but for a long time he absolutely HATED it! When we would try to put him down he would do all he could to not be in that grass!

Both feet up!

I had to end with this funny picture! This little guy is pretty serious most of the time but he also likes to be funny and make people laugh! And thats exactly what this picture is all about!

We are so grateful for Drake in our life! He keeps us laughing and crying almost DAILY!
We love you more that you'll ever know!
Happy Birthday Drake!

Thanks again everyone!

St. George!

I had to post our latest family picture!! I think its HILARIOUS!! We are totally calm but someone else is NOT!
Anyways....we had so much fun in St.George! Brian had to drive to and from St.George 4 times that week due to work so he might rate his fun different from mine! I was very grateful that he did that so we could have "dada" there as well!

My cute sisters were there as well and they put together a little Easter Egg Hunt and the kiddos loved it!!

Drake and I had fun sitting in the hot tub...he was NOT a fan of the other pool! He would scream and scream! Brian was at the gym so he missed out!

My sisters were in another condo and we tried to keep our visits on the shorter side because one by one they all got the flu! I wish we could have had more of our late night chats....they are the best! We spent most of the time with Brians family, we had such a fun time! St.George is one of those trips we look forward to every single year and it never lets us down!
