i've met a ton of great ladies on there & the boards provide endless entertainment- well, i met another bumpie last week & i got a few pics of us, her daughter- etc etc.
i had every intention on showing them to you today- but i somehow managed to delete said pics off my flickr- so, i'll put them back on tonight & show you on Wed (not tomorrow since it's giveaway day!)
so until then- i'l leave you with pics of this past weekend.
on thursday night we piled into the car & set off on a 6 hour trip to NY for one of my best friend's graduations from nursing school.
the trip went smoothly (ie: alex slept the entire time) and the weekend was a blast.
so here you go:
first off- her cat Murray. he is probably the most awesome cat in the whole world (sorry gary!) seriously. he's had a rough life on the streets- so he's missing a few teeth- but it only adds to his charm:
i think he chilled like this for 20 min. no lie.
manda had to cut his nails- he was none too pleased.
moving on- the graduation. manda did the 1 year accellerated R.N. program- talk about hard work. major kudos because i know i wouldn't be able to do that and keep my sanity:
manda & scott (boyfriend)
next- alex at play:
she spent a great deal of time licking this table.
then manda's future MIL brought over a slide:
after her initial trepedation- she was in love. she pitched a small fit when slide time was over.
after the graduation it was time to eat. manda's boyfriend's parents smoked some ribs (omg) and made homemade baked beans (OMG) and manda & scott provided a shit ton of food. i ate and ate and ate. horrible. but so good.
and the best part? :
SMORES!!! one of my absolute most favorite things ever! i've been craving them for 2 summers now- so finally!
and last but not least- The Lilac Festival! due to the random ass cold weather that NY has been having (hello, they had snow last week!) most of the lilacs were looking pretty sad....sigh. however, there were a few good bunches & a lot of the other flowers looked awesome- so we had a great time:
flowers from the coolest tree ever:
and see again:
manda's sister & her boyfriend
some dying lilacs- but a nifty butterfly
the "Love Tree"
no idea what these are
the next 2 pics are my fav from that day- i just LOVE how they turned out:
manda & alex (manda carried her around for basically the entire 3 hours. bless her)
and lastly- not flowers, but still pretty:
and as always:
