Bridal Shower For The Groom’s Side October 27, 2016

 

I was given the great honor of being the Maid of Honor for Kacie, my future sister-in-law. Part of this honor is the fun task of planning/hosting the bridal shower for her. At first I was nervous about this task but then I remembered that I have one amazing asset, my Mom!

Things to plan:

  1. Location
  2. Date/Time
  3. Games
  4. Prizes
  5. Food
  6. Guest List
  7. Invitations

In February I visited with my Mom and we started to plan out some of the details. We know that the party will be held at her house because it has the space and it is a central place for everyone. Plus the house and yard are AMAZING!! The end of June is beautiful weather and closer to her wedding date. We scheduled an afternoon party.

Before the planning was completed, my position changed to just bride’s maid but that did not cancel the party. Nope! It gave my Mom and sister something fun to do together. They planned the food, decorations and games. It turned out beautiful!!!!

I have such a talented family. They made the centerpieces, the hatters hat, and all the flowers are from my Mom’s yard. So proud!!!

 

Disney World!!!! September 16, 2014

Ash had a work conference in the Dolphin Resort August 24th through August 28th, which is on the Disney World property in Orlando Florida. He could have gone and left me at home but he choose not to and I am thankful.

On Friday night I packed the luggage for out trip and it was a little challenging.

Xander blocking packing

Xander decided to lay on the suitcase everytime I turned around. I ended up having to stack everything on the bed and then load it after.  The packing had to be done that nightfor three reasons:

  1. I don’t own enough clothes to pack ahead of time
  2. We had plans all day on Saturday
  3. Our flight on Sunday morning was early and we were not even going to have enough time for sleeping before.

We landed on Sunday evening and I spend most of Monday, through Wednsday in the parks. I had the park hopper so I could see all the parks and shows. There are so many amazing things to see and do! Disneyworld even has Downtown Disney and Disney Boardwalk which can be enjoyed by everyone because they are not in a park so there is no enterance fee.

With so many fun memories and beautiful sites, I would like to share a few of my favorites out of the thousands of pictures.
