sissy gets hitched!

My sister's wedding is this week! It will be Saturday in Whistler, British Columbia. Whistler is a cute ski village that Colleen and her fiance Sanjay like to visit. We leave tomorrow, flying into Vancouver, spending one night there, and then driving 1.5 hours to Whistler. 

We are having a family dinner on Wednesday, a mednhi on Thursday (where you get henna tattoos), the hindu ceremony on Friday, followed by a welcoming dinner, the ceremony/reception on Saturday, and a brunch on Sunday! Whew! It will be exhausting but fun! We don't come until Monday, Memorial Day. Here is the invite I made for her:


double beach trips!

This month, I was really spoiled and went to the beach twice! Matt, Ruthie and I went to Seabrook Island, SC with our friends Nicki and Clay, and their two year old twins. We had an amazing time, and it was actually more relaxing than I thought it would be! Ruthie loved the sand, but the ocean, not so much.

The next week, Ruthie, my mom and I went down to Anna Maria Island and hung out with my friend Sarah Jean. We met her new baby boy Houston. I also got to see my friend and old roommate, Caleb. We had a blast! Here are some photos of both trips:


15 months!

I know I say this every month, but I can't believe Ruthie is 15 months!! Her personality has really come alive, and Matt keeps saying "no, this is my favorite age!" She is a really good eater, I just have to add salt and butter to veggies :-). She started walking a month ago, and is everywhere now! She loves reading books and magazines, more than playing with her toys. Ruthie loves her walks in the stroller, her swing, and her baths. She can say "mama, dada, uh-oh, and hi!" She still sleeps through the night, but her naps are a little shorter now. She is such a delight!
