Matt, the tri-athlete

It was an exciting event to watch last sunday as Matt competed in his first triathalon! After training for a couple months, Matt swam, biked and ran with nearly 350 other athletes to complete this race as I watched with several other family members. Most nervous about his swim, Matt had a goal to complete the race in approximately 1.5 hours. His actual time: 1:36:48. He was very pleased with is time and is motivated to do a triathalon again in the future. But first, we have to complete the marathon!

Here are some pics from the morning.

Well I've loved the idea of working with flowers since high school. I love arranging and growing flowers and I've gotten to feed my desire a few times by dabbling in arranging for my wedding and for a couple of friends' weddings. It started because I wanted to save money and it has become something I want to do more and more!

This past weekend, I was given an awesome opportunity to style an entire wedding for my friend Andrea. I did my research on where I could order the flowers in wholesale and not get ripped off and I stumbled upon a place that provided us with 600 gorgeous roses that matched her wedding perfectly! Here are a few pics of the event!

My favorite part. The swag for above the altar! It was so beautiful!

The finished product! And, we didn't break the bank!

Keep me in mind for your friends who may be getting married! I have also done events like showers and parties.
