I’m back- and not only am I alive, but I’m officially a MRS! Andrew made an honest woman out of me over a month ago and WOW- time is flying! The engagement flew by so fast I epically failed to keep you up to date. So here I am, nearly a year after my last blog post, playing catch up!
Back in January, my sister and two of my best friends (and bridesmaids!) threw me the most perfect
engagement party. There was yummy food, a mimosa bar- and a miller lite keg for Drew, the most
sparkly gold photo booth area, and best of all- all my favorite people were in attendance! The girls
worked so hard on this party and it definitely showed. We felt so loved and so special that night and it
really did kick of our engagement with a bang and made it all start to feel real!
This party was really special to Drew and I- it was the first time both of our families had been in one
place at one time- many of them had not even met before! We weren’t surprised at all that everyone
got along and it was a relief to get that uncomfortable meet and greet out of the way for the upcoming
showers and parties.
After the shower, all of us friends spent the night together. We hadn’t done a slumber party that big
since college and it was so much fun! Of course, the bed times were a lot earlier than they were in
college- a sure sign of old age!
HUGE thanks to my maid of honor, Lesa, and my two bridesmaids, Jordan and Alli, for making our
engagement party so special. We seriously have THE bestest friends and family on Earth and you all
make us feel so blessed!
