SO cute!!

This weekend my little curly was invited to a "photo shoot" for my dear friend Dana's blog. It was amazing to see Dana in action; she is truly one of the most talented people I know. The skirts pictured below are for a giveaway she's having to jump start summer. Go HERE to enter to win one of them. Also, go HERE to see her shop where she makes and sells the cutest baby stuff on the planet.
Leading up to the shoot we were trying to prep Curly by having her smile and pose around the house and she was totally getting into it. Of course on the day of she had no emotion what-s0-ever.

Even with no emotion she's still the cutest little girl I know :)

it's going to be a good year!

Our back yard is brimming with yummy things we'll soon be able to eat...

Figs, figs, glorious figs.
This year I have to figure out what's eating all of them before I get a chance to.

One of about 5 avocados. This tree is not in our backyard, but the neighbors have kindly allowed us to consume anything that is on our side of the fence.

And my dear, glorious lemons are going to be plentiful this year. There are tons of these little guys popping up on just about every branch.

I sure wish I had smell-a-blog, you really have not smelled anything until you've smelled a citrus tree in full bloom. If they bottled this stuff I'd buy it by the gallon.

I am madly in love with all things in bloom!

One lucky mama!!

I am so lucky to have some of the best girlfriends on the face of the planet!! Last week they threw little boy Munson and I quite the baby shower.

Natalie graciously allowed us to tear apart her house for the evening. She and the other gals did such an amazing job at getting it all together.

The food was insanely good!! popcorn, sausage sandwiches, strawberries, beautiful veggies...
delish drinks, and...

the best toasted ravioli EVER!! I ate about 10 of these little cups. And I can't get over the cute little details of the evening; ribbon around the paper cups, cute!! Oh, and I can't forget the yummy ice-cream sandwiches for dessert. I can declare I was officially stuffed when I went home.

Party crew: Natalie, Erin, Jocelyn and Krissy
