Show & Tell: Photo Edition

I'm going to have some show and tell via photography.

These are going to be in a very random order as I am not really in the mood to put them in chonological order. You people are just going to have to concentrate and follow along.

Let's begin.

Scarlett & Juliet had a tap recital. My 4 year old nieces are OUT OF CONTROL with their cuteness..... oh, I love them.... This is the first "official" Girls Weeked. It happened in 2006. The weekend Joanna got engaged. We call it girls Weeked because Lindsee was making the customary funfetti cake and misspelled the word Weekend. It stuck. It is now Girls Weeked and ALWAYS has Girls Weeked cake.

I am desparately missing girl time. We look like total freaks in the above picture. And by "we" I mean "me".

This is my wedding day. I'm holding up the diamond necklace Grant sent to me. If you read this post here, you will learn that I was violently ill on my wedding day with a 24 hour stomach bug. I sat down most of the day.

Like I said, these aren't in order. This is after hair and make-up were done, but I still felt like crap on a stick.

Ah, the gang. Jonathan, Mark, Lindsee, me and Brien. We've been buddies since we were babies. This was the night before Jonathan's wedding and one of the first times we 've all been together in years. I love these people. They are family to me...

Prom. Me, Linds and Jo. Clearly, poofy was in that year. We had a ball and danced the night away.

This is the day Jo got engaged... actually just moments after. This is all of us girls with Jo and her John. I love this picture because Jo's eyes are fresh with tears.

This picture was taken the first time I went to New Orleans to meet Grant's family. This was also the night that he first called me his girlfriend. I was so excited... mainly because our first date was July 24 and this was late October. He was so super slow and super cautious about moving too fast....oh my husband. Slow decision maker. Probably one of the best things he brings to our marriage..... seriously.

This was an engagement picture.

Did you know I'm a musical theater girl? I spent the summer of 2005 playing Anne in "Anne of Green Gables" at the AD Players here in Houston. It was one of the highlights of my life. It was so flippin fun and also, on my birthday performance, Grant proposed :)

This has been show and tell via photographs. Hope you enjoyed :)


  1. I loved Show & Tell. Loved it.

    Oh, a walk down memory lane. We seriously need to get on Girls Weeked 2010.

    Oh, and let it be stated that more than half of these pictures came from my files. And that, my friends, is why I ALWAYS have my camera and ALWAYS make us take one till we get it right. ;)
