A few of my ex co-workers (and one current co-worker) decided we wanted to get together and do brunch. Mike was so nice as to offer his home.

It was great to get together and catch-up with everyone.

Today was Mother's Day. It was pretty low-key. We went to my parents house and had a nice lunch. MY Mom ended up going to my Gramdma's (her Mom's) house, so my Dad grilled for us and we just hung out for a bit. It was delish.

I also got an Up band, by Jawbone. If you've never heard of it before, go google it. Now.

I did Happy Hour at Pour Richards in Bloomington with the MN Blogger group. This was the HH that none of us took a picture at, so as a blogger says, if you didn't take a picture, it didn't happen, right. LOL.

I got my hair done today. I splurged. I went to Rocco Altobelli's downtown MPLS. In other words read: $$$. I did spend WAY too much and will find a cheaper alternative, but it was a slight emergency. I NEEDED it. My hair was SO bad. I don't know why I let it get that bad, but I do. Not only did I get it cut, but I also got high/low lights put in. This was the first time in a LONG time that A) I got my hair colored of some sort (other than a box at home) and more importantly B) was in an actual salon other than Fantastic Sams or Great Clips. Yes, that's how I roll. Cheap, cheap and more cheap.

Today was the 101.3 KDWB Star Party. All the artists this year:

Ariana Grande;
Hot Chelle Rae;
Olly Murs;
Cher Lloyd;
Jason Derulo;
and Nelly

I had printed off a picture for Olly to sign for Hailey from when he was here back in January in the Skyroom. Remember when she climbed up on stage with him? Yea, well he remembered her and signed it and now it's in a frame in her room.

I invited my cousin, Nicole, to come along with me and hang out.

Of course me and my ladies, Katie and Falen, were there.

I got to meet Nelly this year.

This year was one of the best years yet!

As mentioned in THIS post, we had our meeting with Bouari Clinic to start Wayne's weight loss endorsement for the radio station.

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Today I met up with some of my MN Blogger peeps at the new See's Candies that was opening in the Southdale Mall. Carolyn and Kelly put this event together. I brought Hailey with. I took this picture of Hailey and the group picture from Carolyn's blog. I was so busy with Hailey, that I didn't have any time to really enjoy myself, much less take pictures of anything.

 photo Collage-HaileyampBloggers_zpsa7ae125f.jpg

We got to try anything we wanted, they told us some history about the company, we got to go behind the counter and practice packaging AND they sent us home with a bag full of goodies. It was so fun to actually meet a lot of them in person for the first time, although I didn't get to talk to them because of course Hailey had me running after her the whole time.

 photo Collage-SeesCandy_zpse524db47.jpg

Oh well. There will always be more blogger meet-ups, right?

P.S. I feel like 2013 is flying by. Anyone else?

Every once in awhile if Hailey wakes up in the middle of the night, I will just put her in our bed. She's such a mover and a shaker though, so that doesn't happen too often. 

#day155 #june4 Me trying to be healthy. #lunch #photoaday365

Super easy and delicious...spinach, chicken, cashews and balsamic vinaigrette. Sometimes I add cheese or craisans, too!

For some reason she has really taken to the floor. No sure why. I don't get it.

Weekend Highlights: March 23 - 25, 2012

I had this post ready to go yesterday, but I had to get some pics off of my camera first.

So here is my weekend recap.

Friday, March 23, 2012

After work, I went home and cleaned our house. Wayne helped, too. We were having a friend's surprise birthday party at our house Sunday afternoon and I had plans to be gone all day Saturday, so I knew I had to get it done. I never clean on Friday nights, I usually leave it for Saturdays, but that might have to change.I liked not having to clean Saturday or Sunday (minus the few touch-ups right before the party).

Even though I usually like relaxing Friday nights after a long work week, I might have to start Friday nights as cleaning nights. That way I can have the rest of the weekend off.

When do you clean and why?

Wayne left for his gig and after getting Hailey to sleep, I went to bed. I was getting up to meet my Mom at the movie theater for Hunger Games the next morning. I was so excited!

Saturday, March 24, 2012

I dropped Hails off at my parents house and we went to the noon showing of The Hunger Games.

Did you see it? Did you like it?


I was a little disappointed. There, I said it. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, and you will too, if you've read the books. If you didn't read the books, you won't get it. Plain and simple. I think most of my disappointment came from the lack of character development. I guess I just wanted more.

What did you think? 

After the movie we went back to my parents house and my Aunt Cindy and Gramma Sharon came over and we played train dominoes and ate foods. I stayed up way passed my bedtime and paid for it on Sunday.

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Can you say crabby?

The Hubs had an appearance at the Mall of America, so he left me to pretty much get ready for the party all on my own. Needless to say, I was irritated + tired = one crabby Mama.

It ended up all working out. Everything was ready. People showed up. Birthday Boy showed up. We grilled, ate foods, sang Happy Birthday, ate cake and laughed. I met some new, cool people.


Overall it was a busy, but great weekend!

What did you do?

Laura & Scott

Laura is one of my closest friends. We became friends when Wayne and I started dating back in 2002. She is mentioned regularly on this blog. I was honored to be a part of her and Scott's special day. It was a low-key event, but memorable and filled with happiness and many laughs by everyone. They were married on a roof-top in downtown Minneapolis. It was quite hot warm that day, but beautiful to say the least.


Me, Amy, Tammy and Nancy

I have begun friendships with these ladies through Laura's friendship. Such a great group of ladies!


Laura & Scott...married.Yay! Congrats to the happy couple!


Me & Laura


Me & Hailey (She looks so little in this picture. A little over 2 months old.)


Wayne had to work, so my sister, Amie, came to help me that day. So grateful for her and everything she does for me! Love you, Amie!


Another one of just the girls. We were having fun and laughing lots.


Reception was held in the same building downtown. It was a great space.


There was so much food. And it all was so yummy!



Yummy cake.


Our favors from the Bride & Groom.


Me, Hailey (2+ months), Ben (7+ months) & Laura.


Congratulations Laura and Scott! Thank you for including me and for your friendship!

Josh & Michaela

Wayne and Josh have been friends since 2004, when Wayne started working at KCLD in St. Cloud. We were there when Josh first started dating Michaela and have seen their relationship grow from just dating, to moving in together, to getting engaged, to now married! We don't see them as often as we would like, but are hoping to change that. Josh was working in Rochester with Michaela commuting to the Cities everyday, so they were living in between, but Josh recently found a great new job in the Cities, so now they are moving closer! I hope that means getting together more often!

Wayne went to the rehearsal & dinner Friday night (9/23) in Welch, MN by himself cause he also needed to pick up his tux in Rochester. I had to work and it was a lot of driving around to take Hailey with. The next day our little family of three made our way down to Welch, MN for the ceremony and then onto Red Wing for the reception. Everything was beautiful, especially the Bride. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day.

Wayne was an Usher. He felt totally honored as he was the only person in the wedding party that wasn't a family member. I thought that meant a lot being he was the only friend in the wedding.


This was Hailey napping while the professional pictures were taking place. She slept a lot that day. Isn't her outfit cute?


Smiling in her sleep.


They are married!


Isn't her dress gorgeous ??


This is the head table. I was so honored and thankful to get to sit with my Hubby and be included. Also, look at that view!! It was a beautiful venue!


I love the detail of everything!! They used corks for the name holders.



Cupcake table.


Just the 3 of us...The Danielson Family!


The food was delicious, the band was fun and the newlywed couple was adorable!


Congratulations Josh & Michalea! Thank you for making me feel so included in your special day!
