Dream Wedding Location: Napa Valley/Sonoma Valley
Justin and I's first vacation together was in Sonoma Valley/Napa Valley.... Can you say GORGEOUS! So ever since we took this romantic little vacation.. I have always wanted to go back there and get married! We could get married here....
Dress: Something elegant and romantic
I have always dreamed of a simple elegant wedding dress that has a little bit of an antique touch. Maybe it will look like this...
Flowers: Depends on the time of year that we would get married, but for a fall wedding these would be beautiful!
Hopefully this gives everyone an idea of what I would love my dream wedding to look like! Now lets just keep our fingers crossed that he pops the question soon! (OH and just in case he does... I have already contacted a wedding planner in Napa .... Hey a girl can never be to prepared! )

Never underestimate these two... they are constantly keeping everyone on thier toes with the new things they say or do!
Bryce, well lets just say he is going to be a heartbreaker when he is older. Already as handsome as can be and has a personality to die for! Watch out ladies.... your little girls are in trouble!
Love you little munchkins!

Oven Fried Chicken (Weight Watchers Style)
1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons water
3 or 4 chicken breasts
1 1/2 ounces of corn flakes crushed (I usually use more than 1 1/2 ounces)
8 teaspoons of butter melted
6 tablespoons of flour
1 oz of Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon of salt
dash of pepper
1. Mix flour, salt and pepper in one bowl then set aside
2. Mix corn flakes and Parmesan cheese in one bowl and set aside.
3. Dip each chicken breast in the flour mixture, then dip/cover in egg and then coat with the corn flake mixture. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken.
4. Place the chicken in a coated pan and then bake at 375 for 1 hour.
Delicious and very healthy as well!

Here he is below enjoying his favorite past time... Playing in the sprinkler! Who would have imagined that he could have this much fun. Good news is, I guess we don't have to give him a bath any time soon, especially if he keeps this up every time we water the yard!

Here are just some of the pics that captured the weekend!
Erin, Landry, Emma and Anna all ready for some time on the lake!
Can you sit like this? Since all the kiddos could, my cousin Stacy had to ensure she was not outdone by them!
Landry about to show everyone her skiing abilities!
Fireworks... what more could kids ask for!
This weekend we also got to spend alot of time with my cousin Marc's little one, Brody! He is a year and a half and came in all the way from San Diego to spend the 4th with everyone. As you can tell by the pic below this weekend he mastered the art of smiling for the camera on demand!
And to everyone that knows about how bad my allergies are, we have tried over and over again to keep him off the couch so I dont have one of my crazy allergy attacks but it doesn't look like we are making any progress. Seriously though, how can you tell something as cute as this to get off the couch!

Justin and my little cousin Brody!
Helping all the kids light sparklers!
The 4th is one of my favorite holidays mainly because we pack up and head to Lake Eufuala to spend time with all of my dad's side of the family! It's the only time of the year that we all get together and its so much fun seeing all the little ones running around, playing in the lake, and sitting around and catching up with everyone!The pics above are some from last years 4th of July Activities at Eufaula...
Bad news is Justin will not be able to make the trip this year since he will be on shift at the Fire Station on the 3rd and the 5th. (I am still trying to convice him to come down for just the day on Saturday but I know that is alot to ask between his shifts). Since Justin won't be coming, that means that Tad and I will get to have a little bit of brother/sister bonding on the way tomorrow night (2 hours worth)... I am sure that he is very excited for me to talk his ear off the whole way, but hey what are sisters for!
Pics for this year to follow shortly!
