New Apartment

My new apartment is fantastic! Here are some pics from when I first started moving in. (Hopefully I'll have some pics of it all set up soon.) It's so nice to have my own place. I'm finally starting to feel like a grown up. How crazy is that?

Heather's Shower & Wedding

I know that I've been a very bad blogger lately. Life's been busy lately but, honestly, when is it not? I'm going to try and catch up, by blogging about some of the fun things that have been going on, like, my friend Heather's bridal shower and wedding in September.

The bridal shower was at Heather's house and a lot of fun. We all got to sit around and chat, watch Heather open her gifts, and, of course, we had to play obligatory shower games. One of the games we played, involved splitting into groups and designing wedding dresses out of toilet paper. My group had little Lexie as the model. Doesn't she look adorable?

The beautiful bride to be.

The wedding was lovely. There were some minor small problems on the day of the wedding, like a rude photographer and really uncomfortable shoes for the poor bridesmaids...really painful shoes! :o( But at the end of the day Mike and Heather were married and now they have the rest of their lives to spend together. They truly are an adorble couple and I couldn't be happier for them! Congrats!

Alyssa's Birthday

So I know her birthday was over a month ago but I haven't gotten around to posting about it. Anyway, I can't believe my baby sister is 10 years old. She's growing up so fast!!

We had her party at my apartment. We ordered pizza and went swimming at the pool. (We finally used the pool after living there for almost a year.) It was a fun day and it was even better since some of our family was able to come down from Utah to celebrate with us.

Alyssa got lots of great stuff. She loves the play Wicked and was most excited about her new Elphaba doll.

Blowing out her birthday candles. Makes a Wish!
Everyone enjoying cake.
