Favorites and Firsts…

Favorites…

My birthday was this week and I had the best time with friends and got so many beautiful things. Here are a few…
I have wanted these measuring bowls from Anthropologie for the longest time. My sweet mom gave them to me. I love having them sit on the counter and using them every time I cook.

My wonderful sister-in-law gave me this neat bag. It has a velcro closure and of course a great monogram. You can use it for shampoo or a ton of other things but right now it is in my pool bag to keep my cell phone and other things dry. So nifty…

This gift just takes the cake. My dear friend, Jessica, and I love Lisa Leonard for a variety of reasons. On Jessica’s birthday I sent her a pair of Lisa’s earrings and for my birthday, I received this. It is truly a special gift. june 4 031june 4 035

I really am a novice photographer but thanks to my dad, I have the best gear. I got an awesome 18-105mm lens. Paparazzi style pictures will be coming soon!118

Firsts…

AnnaKate got her first pair of riding pants. Aren’t they so cute?!

They must have been what she needed because she actually stood on the horse last week and rode around the ring. I did not get a picture because I was assisting but this will give you a hint of what it looked like. WOW!hippo6

We had our first swim of the summer. AnnaKate is a huge fan of the water and we found out that her new puppy, Beau, is too!june 4 012

All of these things are a great way to kick off summer!
