kiengkham's korner: farmer's market, car show, and our garden

This past week my husband and I went to the Farmer's Market in our town. It was such a beautiful morning. I finally woke up early to enjoy the first day of the Farmer's Market for this year. I loved it! We had such a fun date trying cheese, shopping for vegetables and looking at home made crafts. The home made crafts were very cool. Take a look at those bird houses!

Souwan and I also got to see a car show in town. I'll admit that I do not know anything about cars. These cars were really neat and nostalgic. I know my mom used to tell me about the drive in movies with the speaker boxes on the cars. It was exciting to see one. We enjoyed some karoke and kabobs from this food truck at the car show too.

My flower bed has changed so much. Our gladiolus flowers are starting to come up.

I'm not sure what this flower is. It resembles a pansy, but they are much taller. They are blooming in our flower bed. My husband got them for sale at Lowe's for $1 each.

My lilies are slowly coming up. These are from Lowe's too. I got them as bulbs in a bag for $8. These were not on sale.

These azaleas have really bloomed since we got them in March! I love the pinks (my favorite color). Souwan got these on sale at Lowe's.

Our hostas are huge. I underestimated the width of these hostas. We planted flowers near them not knowing how big they would get. Souwan said we may need to move some plants/flowers around in the bed. Three weeks ago they were just starting to come up.

My brother, mom and Souwan went to our local garden store to get vegetables. Souwan and I are trying our green thumb.

My brother and dad's birthday was this week. We took my brother out to eat at a Thai restaurant. It was a great time and very good food. I want another seafood salad now! Happy Birthday to the best brother and best friend a girl could have. And, i'll stop here before embarrassing him.

I'll be celebrating with my dad for his birthday later on. I just wanted to give him a shout out! I love ya! He owes me some basketball games, some yard/house work and some vegetables from his garden. But seriously he is awesome and I am grateful for helping guide me to be who I am today, Happy Birthday daddy!

Our small vegetable garden is finished (for now). I have planted almost everything. I have a handful of plants still left to put into another bed. This one is complete! First, I laid out all the plants in the bed to map it out. I have no reason for doing it this way other than my need for organization. After, I planted all the plants and watered them.

(not all pictured)
on the first row: (left to right) Lettuce, Thai Basil
second row: Jalapeño peppers, Thai peppers, Lemon Basil
third row: bell pepper, cilantro, tomato, and dill

From Lowe's: Thai Basil, Jalapeno peppers, Tomatoes, bell peppers
From our local garden store: Lettuce, Thai peppers, Lemon Basil, Dill, cilantro
From mom: Thai peppers

Next time I will get all of the plants and better photos. After I finished it was dark. My iPhone photo will have to do (second photo). Also, I got more plants from the store and mom so I will post those up soon!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN!

She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
