I am so excited to share this with you guys – I have a brand new teeny tiny little niece!!  Reagan Anita Rose Boardman – born a few weeks preemie, so she is the teeniest and loves to sleep and eat (a lot, she is a GOOD eater!) her big brother Waylon is getting used to her, and her big sister Aneikha LOVE LOVE LOVES her!!  Mary & Troy are the happiest with their sweet little family!!  Congratulations you guys – I can’t wait to see you again in a couple of weeks!!



This little teeny doll she is next to – her name is Rose, and since I can remember my little sister Mary… she ALWAYS had this doll with her (adorable!) so I have been begging her to name her kiddos Rose. ;0)  At least we got a middle name here, sweet little Rose!  141206_0173Raegan141206_0179Raegan141206_0197Raegan141206_0213Raegan

Pop Cap – that crazy company we know and love sure knows how to throw a bangin party!!!  The made the best choice of hiring Kelli B with Shindig Events, she always has all of the coolest ideas and really knows how to assemble a team to execute a dynamo party!! I mean, let me tell you – we were at Aston Manor, so it was a 1920’s flapper themed event. Then there were MERMAIDS in the BATHTUB blowing bubbles, tattoos to be painted on, burlesque performances with feathers, pearls and glitter by Shanghai Pearl and her sweet team.  Everyone loves a Photo Booth and this one had a background that made you look like you were in jail!!  Austin Beaver – that guy!!!  He took this already rad party and tossed it right over the top!! He played all of the good music the dance floor was PACKED!!  Lets see – besides good food and cupcakes, there was a casino by the Lucky Lady team and SO many delicious drinks – what an awesome event!! Thanks for inviting me to document it Kelli!! Can’t wait to see what next years theme will be!!  #PCMurderMystery

Oh, those Foxes…. so adorable!!  I remember so many years ago… was it 7 now?!?! Meeting this adorable bubbly blond radio host who was super generous with her time and helped us start Get Hitched Give Hope!!  We became fast friends & when you meet Brooke, you will see why – she is the BEST! It has been so fun getting to know this funny little lady… first hearing about this handsome gent named Michael who she was dating (love love love!)… then before we knew it, they were thinking of buying a house together,  BOOM – an engagement ring on her finger (a fantastic one designed by Michael’s Mom!) then the WEDDING OF THE CENTURY and now… the BABE!!   I have loved becoming friends with this wonderful family (yup, I’ve moved in on the family – they are just too great not to join forces with!) and was thrilled when Brooke & Michael asked me to snap some family photos.  ;0)  It was so great to meet the newest Fox Family member, teeny tiny little Norah, Here are a few of my favs from last weekend!



Happy Anniversary to the BIRDS!!!  One year ago today…. wow, it is fun to think about!!  We were all out at the Flying Horseshoe Ranch in Cle Elum getting ready for the wedding of the year!!  In fact – we all still talk about how wonderful this weekend really was!  From crazy rain storms and too much ridiculously good wine at the rehearsal dinner, to zorbing & football in the rain, the mechanical bull, fireball, hot tubbing with good friends, shooting guns, morning group workouts, really great food, too many great drinks (did I mention with really great friends?!) oh, and dancing…. ALL. NIGHT. LONG, the memories keep pouring in, I will never be able to explain to you how magical or how fun it was to be a part of this.   Thank you Megan & Aaron…. for being the best of friends, for being in love, for getting married and for letting all of us celebrate with you!!  I love you both!!!
