Holidays are Comin'!

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is THIS week! Time just keeps flying by.....This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year!! We have been super busy this weekend. Last night I went to 'The Gathering' with my sister-in-laws and Ash's mom. We had a blast and got some free gifts ;)

LOVE these ladies!

Saturday morning we went and watched Landon test for his green belt! He did AWESOME!!!!! He broke a board with a sidekick! So glad we were able to go! Afterwards we headed to get some Christmas lights! Luke and I decided to put the lights up on the house since it was SO nice today! It was a success! We are going to add some to the trees, but at least the hardest part is done!

Luke hangin' the lights! Thank goodness he isn't afraid of heights or ladders! :)

Bella decided to join us ;)
He did such a good job!!! LOVE him! Can't wait to get the rest of the Christmas decorations out! Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving! YAY..the HOLIDAYS are here!!! :)

Wedding Shower

My mom and I had a wedding shower for Mary, my best friend last weekend! We have been preparing for it for the last few months. Everything turned out wonderful! We had it at a local restaurant, Granite City Food & Brewery. It was nice because they did all the food...and no one had to eat anything I made ;) She got a ton of nice I would say it was a SUCCESS!!

I tried to stick with her wedding colors and 'theme'. Here are the invitations:

The table setting. I spray painted the vases and put pearls around them. They turned out fabulous!
Towel cake :)
DIY cupcake stands....with yummy wedding cake cupcakes! :)

She got her Kitchen Aide mixer! Yay!

I didn't take hardly any pictures at all! I'm bummed! Only a little over a month until the big day! I can't wait!

In laws

I have some pics that are from the past couple of months. Most of them are from hanging out with the Flusche family....which brings me to my next point :)....

I am SO lucky to be marrying into such a wonderful family...not only is Luke an amazing man...but the rest of his family is! They have all welcomed me with open arms and I am So grateful for this. It has made this move so much easier. I have the best sister in laws you could ask for....they include me in so much! Thanks Christy and Ashley for being the best! I love you guys!
