Oh Heyyyy!

Hello Lovelies!

Oh my goodness gracious this has been a busy week. San Fran was pretty awesome, although I didn't get to see as much of the city as I would like because I was working the whole time. But my mommy and I are planning a possible trip up there this summer, so I will get to explore more then.

First, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the amazing women who guest posted for me. I never thought that anyone would want to contribute to this little blog of mine, so I am beyond grateful!

I have so many stories to share with you from the last couple weeks/weekends that I am kinda undecided on where to start. So I thought this week I would give you a culmination of my last three AMAZING weekends! 

Two weeks ago was my Sassmafrass's (better name then sister-in-law) baby shower numero dos! This time it was ladies only, and we had a blast! I think you guys all know that my brother and his wife are expecting a baby boy next month and I couldn't be more excited. I am going to be the best auntie ever, but more importantly they are going to be beyond amazing parents!

{The beautiful mommy-to-be!}

Inspired by the baby on the way, we decided to watch old home movies. My brother Bryn, still has a VHS player, so we popped that ole' tape in. Let me just say that it was truly heartwarming watching those videos. It is surreal because even though the people on the screen are you, you feel like you are watching total strangers.

Anyways, it was starting to get sentimental (birthdays, Easter, Christmas, etc.) when all of a sudden this popped on the screen:
Yes that is me. And yes I am wearing a coconut bra and grass skirt. And you better believe that I was shakin my little tail feather like nobody's business!! Needless to say we all started cracking up at the ridiculous little ham that was the 3-year-old me. Don't even get me started on that out of control lion's mane on top of my head either....

I love home movies and old pictures because it gives you a glimpse into a time in your life that you can't really remember. It shows you who you were so many years ago, and more importantly it reminds you of who you have become. So long ago I was a bossy, head strong little girl, and if you were to ask my family they would tell you not much has changed. They are right, I am head strong. I know what I want, and I go after it. So thank you, little Kai, for making me what I am today.

Here is what to expect this week:
Tuesday- Trendy Tuesday (off topic but oh well)
Wednesday- Trips Across the Border...Kinda
Thursday- Dodger Disasters
Friday- Adventures with Hudson
