Maggie’s First Bridal Shower

with 2 comments

This weekend Maggie, one of my favorite people, had her first bridal shower.  She was glowing and it was clear that everyone there loves and supports her so much! I am so happy and excited for Maggie and Daniel.  They have been together since they were like 15 years old, and they are still adorable.  I know they will have a beautiful marriage. I can’t wait for the wedding in August!


The beautiful bride!

Everyone brought a favorite recipe and put it on a scrapbook page for Maggie.  Here are the Reinker girls hard at work!


Don’t break too many of those bows!

Happy 4th of July!

with one comment

We had our first party in our house for the 4th of July. My family and some Orange County peeps came over to celebrate Independence Day with some delicious food.  Then we all headed to Sarah and Jarrod’s to watch fireworks from their backyard. That night we had our first overnight guests (5 of them!) in the new house.  At our apartment, guest always had to sleep on the couch. Well, despite having 2 more beds and 4 bedrooms, we STILL had to have people sleep on the couch!


Oh the gluttony!

Mmm…homemade ice cream!

Moving Day/Father’s Day

without comments

So, I am finally updating this blog. I am determined not to only write one post and never blog again. Even if it means my posts are extremely delayed.

We moved into our house on Father’s Day. Lucky Dad got to help move boxes and furniture on his big day. That just goes to show what a good father he is!!

Here are some pictures from the big move:dsc_00091

We are getting pretty settled in the new house. We absolutely love it, and having so much space is awesome! I will post pictures soon!
