Three Cheers For Flowers!

This is ridiculous.

Since I've last posted, Jessica and Justin have split, Jon has been exiled and it is now Kate plus 8, and 15 celebrities have either had their babies or announced their pregnancies. I have GOT to get my act together!

The past week or so has been great! I'm officially working full-time at Nordstrom, which is fantastic for many reasons but also means Michael's and my time together has been cut a bit. It can be frustrating but we're pretty good at making the best of situations thrown our way so we're just learning to really enjoy the time we do have together. And I think we're managing quite well. :)

Saturday we went to an absolutely gorgeous wedding and I actually remembered to use my camera. Amanda (the bride) was beautiful, the flowers were incredible, and the band was amazing (will you look at all of those adjectives)! I think the band was bigger than TU's band and if I'd known more people in the crowd I would have been on the dance floor all night long. As it turns out I only knew a handful and was not ready to introduce the 300 others to my poor dancing skillz. Very few will ever witness the hand-pointing madness.

The ball at the top of the dance floor was actually HUGE and covered in flowers and I later learned that the draping is not tulle but chenille. Fancy!

For some reason all of my pictures of Amanda had severe red-eye or her hand was in front of her face. This was the best shot! :(

My parents were here for the past several days and we were thrilled to see them! Michael's parents came over Monday night and the six of us had a cook-out and watched the Cowboys win! On Tuesday my parents and I headed to Dallas' Arboretum while Michael was at work. (Plug: If you live in/near the Dallas area, you need to go there! Phenomenal!) They brought in 25,000 pumpkins not long ago and it was fantastic. I can't imagine how long it took to decorate the entire area with them!

I know there are other things I'm missing but I think I'll just leave you with some pictures. Going to have an Evan post in the next few days--exciting things are happening in his world! :)

(By the way, 110 pictures were taken--it was THAT pretty!)

I love all the pics! And I LOVE your dress from the wedding! I've seen it before...maybe one of my friend's wives has it if I remember right... so adorable!The pumpkins on that walkway are gorgeous-who knew pumpkins could look that amazing.. for reals.

Glad Nordstroms is rocking along, chica. :)

Justin and Jessica broke up!?! How did I miss that??? I check every day! (Yes, I just admitted that for all the world to see.)

I love finger pointers.

Love all the gorgeous photos! I heart fall and pumpkins. Thanks for keeping me in the know on the celebrity world, and thank you for inspiring me to wear something other than jeans and a solid color v-neck T today.

I miss you when you're on the sales floor of Nordstrom's and unable to blog. :)

Love, love, love all the pictures. Especially the ones at the Arboretum. BTW is your top from BR? I think I have the same one in orange. Anyway, the Hudsons are glad you're back. We've missed your posts.

Love those pics of you and your mom with all the pumpkins. I need to go see her now that I'm in town! Every year in Boston they try to beat the world record for most lit pumpkins in one place, but they're just all sitting around everywhere. It's really cool to see yours set up in a decorative way.
