All the feels

This past weekend was busy in a good way. It was with lots of emotions to say the very least but all in all a good weekend. and NEXT weekend is the BIG weekend!!! There are 5 days until I say "I do", I don't think it has really sunk in yet but it definitely will on Sunday!

Anywho, back to the weekend, here is a bit of a recap.
 Friday after work we all met at the cemetery to burry my Aunt Susans ashes. It was just the immediate family but it was really nice.
One thing that I really loved was Isabelle decided to have everyone go around and say one thing they loved about Susan. Besides the obvious things (caring, loving, kind etc..) my favorite thing was our adventures we took together. We went to the beach and layed in the water talking in british accents, we went to the Yorktown more times than I can count, we did the strawberry festival where we had the best strawberry shortcake, our shopping trips to Kohls, sitting in a restaurant while it snowed and feeling like we were in a snowglobe, just to name a few! We had many many more adventures these were just my top faves!
  It was raining a little and she decided she wanted to be Mary Poppins!
After the service I headed home to spend the evening with friends talking wedding and everything else which was so nice!!
I am so thankful that Ashley and Lauren are helping on the wedding day and will have everything look perfect and run smoothly. They will obviously be enjoying the wedding as well but knowing they are helping as well puts me at ease. I know those two will take care of everything and I have no doubts it will be perfect. If it was all left to me to decorate, well that probably wouldn't turn out so amazing haha

 Saturday morning after a quick workout and run to the store we went to celebrate Ashleys surprise 30th birthday! Everything looked so nice and tasted great! We were so happy to get to celebrate one of our favorite people.  


 The kids had been cooped up for most of the day and our pool was closed BUT Aunt Krystals pool was open so we went over there and had a blast!! The kids said it was the best day EVER!

 Anyone else love these fruit snacks or just me?
 I should mention Dave was gone ALL day helping a guy from work move so he literally got home, read a few bible stories with the kids then we all crashed. Having them all day by myself was a little tiring but we all survived!
 Sunday morning started with the gym and getting to see the ducks swimming in the pool. I don't know why I find this so funny but I do.
We went to church, came home had lunch then went to my parents house. We hung out there most of the evening except running by where we are having the wedding.
I am trying to enjoy every moment this week that isn't crazy because this weekend will be busy. All fun but busy busy! Heck this week is busy but there is some down time too thankfully!!

Randoms from the weekend

Posting about last weekend on Thursday... hmm can we say slacker? I almost didn't even post but things are quiet at the moment so this will use up at least 5 mins of my day!
 So last Friday (last minute) Dave and I both invited a friend over, we cooked dinner and played uno. Mom gave me a few huge potatoes so instead of fries out the bag I decided to cook the ones she gave me. I cut them up, drizzled olive oil, garlic salt and S&P on them then baked in the oven at 400 for maybe 30 minutes. They were absolutely delicious and I will be making these many times in the future. I would probably eat them everyday they are THAT good.

 We failed miserably at opening the bottle of wine, notice the cork IN the bottle haha

 Food, Wine, Friends and Uno=Fun!


 Saturday morning after a workout I went to get my hair done for the wedding, she added more brown back and I love it. Then I met up with Julie my awesome photographer AND friend for lunch and wedding talk!  The guacamole was delicious!!!

 Went shopping with my sister later in the afternoon and had a starbucks for the first time in forever. I honestly don't know how long but it has been well over a year at the very least. It was delicious but expensive!!

 Sunday we were all bad and skipped church! Dave and I worked out then went shopping with mom and the girls for wedding stuff! Think we got enough burlap?  
 After eating some pizza the girls and I went for a walk (almost a mile) which made me feel a little better. I wonder why I am bloated this week, CARBS! haha they were so good though!
 Dave got a huge thing of protein for his birthday present! the one on the right was cheaper than the left and way more protein!!
 Monday morning the sunrise was looking so pretty so of course I took a picture! Later after work I met with the DJ and we got a plan for the ceremony and reception so things are really coming together. After I met with him I got my nails done which took FOREVER!! They did a good job but I won't be going back to that place unless I bring a book.

Tuesday we were supposed to do my bridal portraits but thanks to the rain that didn't happen which totally bummed me out. BUT on a good note we got to see the whole package (hair, makeup, jewelry and dress) and mom got to do the bustle so the wedding day should go off without a hitch as far as I am concerned.

As of today we have 10 days until the wedding, I am just trying to enjoy everything and soak it all in. The fact that I am about to be a Mrs just blows my mind!! I am super excited and ready!! I am so looking forward to all we have planned around the wedding too! It will be so fun!!

Work Shower

Guys, we have 15 days until our wedding!!! This fact alone blows my mind, this month is flying by and the wedding will be here before I know it and I am SO excited!!! I get to marry my best friend and party with my family and friends, this is a huge WIN WIN!

So keeping with the whole wedding talk, yesterday Finance (where I work) did a really cute shower for us.

 The cake was delish and the goodie bags were absolutely adorable!

 Gifts which I honestly was not expecting and let's just say they spoiled us!!!

We are both so blessed with great co-workers! I was glad he was able to come and be there with me especially since we were front and center. I am not normally a fan of being center of attention and he has no problems with it.

3 more weekends, counting down the days!!!
