TJ coming soon

I have not posted any personal posts in a long time, enjoy a few bits and pieces from my summer.

My sister is expecting a little boy in September Thomas Jefferson Hood or TJ for short. Several of us joined the Hoods for a sneak peak of TJ at the 4d Ultrasound place. After the ultrasound we enjoyed brunch at Hash House a Go go.

Aunt Patti Cake, Yamma, Chrissy, Yampa, Tom
Look at those cheeks!


I baked 80 cookies for an event this summer my awesome sister came and helped me decorate.
Thankfully she is a great swirler! She ended up doing a much better job so I became support giving her food, beverage, and frosting.
Thanks Chrissy Lee the help!

Gwen and Ron's Wedding

July ended with the beautiful Wedding of my friend Gwen and her amazing husband Ron. It was wonderful being part of their ceremony, it brought back fond memories of my own wedding at the same venue The Mt. Charleston Lodge. Thank you for inviting me to be part of your day!

The Dress

Gwen had a late friends rosary embedded into her bouquet. It was such a beautiful touch to remember someone special by.

The Beautiful Gwen

The Handsome Groom Ron

The Beautiful Couple
Just a few favorites I really tried to keep the length of this post down.

The Ceremony was a special combination of both of their cultures.

Her Uncle was the officiant

The Coin Ceremony
The Cord Ceremony- During this moment we listened to music and let the couple take in the moment and sharing their lives together.

The Vows

The Kiss

After the beautiful ceremony it was time to party

I love this one of Gwen checking the fine print of the marriage license
