1 MONTH for Us... 1 DAY for Will & Kate

I've got lots to share... life is busy, but good!
2 weekends ago I had my bachelorette party! We had a lot of fun at the coast wine tasting and hanging out at the beach. I will post some pics once I get them from my sister. :)

Last weekend Jon and I flew to Michigan with his brother, sister-in-law, and sister for their grandmothers funeral. It was a sad time but also a joyous time because she is now pain free and in heaven with our savior, Jesus Christ. It was nice because we got to spend Easter with Jon's family which we wouldn't have otherwise. We got back really late Tuesday night so I've spent the rest of this week recovering from jet lag and doing laundry, etc.

Also----- Today is a big day for Jon and I because we are now officially one month away from getting married!!! My, how the time has flown. I know this month will go by especially fast. I'm starting to feel pretty overwhelmed because of all the things I still need to do before the wedding. My to do list is daunting. I know it will all get done though and I just need to take it one step at a time.

Well- that's it for now.... I will be hopefully showing you some more projects I've been working on soon.

Oh, and I am looking forward to watching the royal wedding! You better believe I have my DVR set to record it tonight/tomorrow morning! I'm excited to see what her dress and everything else looks like. :)

Another Fun Bridal Shower and a Trip to San Fran

I wanted to share with you another cute and fun bridal shower of mine that I had two weeks ago. :0) I had a great time and felt so blessed to have such a wonderful family. Thank you to those of you that came and to my aunt and cousin for throwing a great shower!

My cousin Kristen made these adorable cupcakes. I loved that she wrote, "Best Wishes Mandy" on them. They were delicious.
This little advice tree was really creative. Each guest wrote some words of wisdom for marriage and hung it on this metal tree. Everyone also came with a favorite recipe and put it in a box for me to take home. I have all kinds of great recipes that I can't wait to start cooking now!
I thought this was very cute too. Everyone got to take a little bag with them home that had Hershey's hugs and kisses inside.
And here is a picture of me with the party planners... my Aunt Janice, Cousin Kimberly, and Cousin Kristen.

Last weekend Jon and I went to San Francisco to visit my sister, Chelsie, and Jon's sister, Maria, who are roommates in the city. How ironic is that?! It's pretty awesome if you ask me. :) Anyway we had a great time visiting them. Some highlights... we walked through Golden Gate park, went to Buca Di Beppo for dinner, went to Cheesecake Factory overlooking the city, Sunday morning went to church at Reality, had a delicious omelette at Squat and Gobble, and stopped for cookies at Hot Cookie located in Castro (pretty interesting place, that's all I have to say about that!).

Here are some photos from the weekend :)
