Girls Weekend

I love my girlfriends! They ALWAYS make me laugh!!! I got to hang out with my girls this weekend and it was a total blast. I took a trip down to Utah to go wedding dress shopping (I didn't find "the one" but I had a blast!!!) I got to stay at Lauren's new apartment and go shopping with Lauren and Laura. It was so great to hang out and laugh and reminisce about fun old times! It was great to chat about inside jokes. Good times!

I love you girls! Thanks for being my besties! And, on another note, I get to go home in 3 days! I have all sorts of fun plans with my family and the love of my life! I'm so excited to go wedding dress shopping with my mom and sisters and have date night with my man and go see my (future) baby nephew! Such a fun weekend planned. I can't wait!!!

Wedding Plans!!!

Well, it's official! The temple date has been set! Saturday, September 4th at 11:00 AM! Just under 4 months. I can't wait! College life is busy without planning a wedding, so needless to say, there's never a dull moment in my apartment! Things are starting to come together slowly. Jon and I are fortunate to have lots of connections. His mom is doing the invitations for us, my brother-in-law, Steve, is a phenomenal caterer, my sister-in-law makes beautiful cakes. We've met with some rental places on decorations, talked to a DJ, and have an appointment with the butter cream cupcakery. There is absolutely no way that I would be able to get this done without the help of my AWESOME family. Especially my mom, she's helping out so much! My colors are Victorian lilac (a dark, dusty purple) and buttercream yellow with a touch of navy blue. And I'm going with a sort of fairytale vintage theme. I can't wait!

School is going really well. I'm enjoying all my classes, not so much the homework though. I LOVE and adore the girls I live with. We have so much fun together! We're all going to a BBQ tomorrow that I'm super excited about! And then hopefully to go see Iron Man 2. It's been a blast, but I am, of course, missing home and Jon quite a bit. Just over 10 weeks and I'll be home again!!!

Also, Happy Birthday to my beautiful and amazing sister! I love you Cee Cee! 25 looks AMAZING on you! ;) Wish I could be there to celebrate with you! Hope you have a fabulous"you" day! Love you Sister!
