3rd Year of Marriage

It's not our anniversary, don't worry. But like most things, the Fair's are a little slow. The Fairs, meaning the Mr & Mrs. Ryan Fair household. We always have to pay extra dollars on the Redbox. When we really make an effort to go someplace early, it usually means we get there right on time. We have had the city called about our lawn being too long...speaking of which....

Our hands down favorite shot from our wedding is this one:
I know the jumping pictures are old and overdone, but I LOVE THEM. This picture makes me chuckle every time I look at it. Like, what the heck is Lindsay next to me doing with her arm? Am I even off the ground (the dress was heavy, guys)? Sister Amy totally is covering herself up. There's a mystery person behind James who was like, F this, I'm not jumping. Speaking of James there in the front, he's pissed because we took him out of the food line to take this picture. And Eric there on the end-- in the next two pictures, he just about 2 feet higher while everyone else is on their decent. I think he may be part gazelle. And really, my favorite is creepy 70's Aaron on the right side over there. I just love this picture.

Because of our affection for this photo, every year around our wedding anniversary, we try to take a jumping photo in Guthrie, where our reception was. We wanted to take Pete last year, but he was a puppy and Ryan took to heart very closely that we couldn't take him out until his puppy shots were complete, so we never got around to doing it. But this weekend we finally crammed Pete in the back of the Camero, and with him breathing in our ears the whole time, went and took our family jumping photo.

Sorry to be showy, next year I'll wear pants. xoely

I am in love with this

I know, I know, I haven't posted in eons, and now two in one day!!! My lunch hour has been PACKED with blog love. Sometimes it's nice to just sit and eat at my desk and pittle around for a while.

Anyway, my lovely friend Stefanie sent me Mila's Daydreams Blog, and I'm pretty much in love with it. This mom always wondered what her little one dreamed about, so she takes a few minutes of each day imagining what goes on in little Mila's dreams. LOVE IT! I wish I had thought of it. And had a baby I could borrow.


Encouraging Thoughts

I saw this video over on blah, blah, blahg

How precious is she! And I've been in quite a funk lately. So I was thinking, maybe I should give myself a little pep talk....

I like my husband (even if he borrows my keys and I am late to work and get a crappy parking spot)
I like my dog
I like my family
I like my newly arranged office (pictures as soon as it's cleaned)
I like my co-workers -- at both jobs!
I like Cari and Garretts wedding photos
I like my new sweater from JCrew
I like that my husband is really getting into the business
I like my hair longer
I like the strawberry pie I make
I like the front door I painted
I like my new mascara
I like my handwriting (when I try)
I like my jokes

And I would like it if YOU used this time to tell me a list of things that you like about YOURSELF!

The Mother Ship of Frills!

You know I love ruffles. I can’t resist them. And this is the mother ship of ruffled wedding dresses. MEOW! Think I could get away with wearing it to the company Christmas party…..

Happy 4th....and 5th, and 6th, 7th & 8th...

Sorry I've been a bit MIA lately, I've been an editing MACHINE lately. You can check out the bad boys who have been keeping me away from EHT lately. I am excited because I think I'm going to get to go to bed before 1 tonight, wooo-hoo!

But I did take a little break this weekend for 4th of July. I'm not a huge 'decorator for the holiday' person, but for some reason I love 4th of July decorations, so I was excited to host a party last night :) We had over some of my buds from high school. It was great to get to catch up with everyone, and gave me a great excuse to decorate, make pies, and buy flowers :)
What's more american than an ice cold coca-cola?? Don't worry, the beer was added soon after.
Pete dressed in his sunday best for company. At least while I was holding a treat over his head.

How do you like Grizzly Ryan??

After Dinner we had sparker fun trying to write our names in photos! 

Can you guess the names?? Now, no cheating Ryan, Lindsay, Kristen, Josh, Brian and Me...wait...;)

Hope you all had a lovely and safe holiday weekend!
