Engagement Party

Holy moly! It’s been like two weeeeeeeks since I last posted!

It’s been crazzzzzzy! So much has gone on, we’ve had our engagement party, Easter, photo shoots, created a hilariously awesome BAEWATCH video….where do I begin!

Let’s start with the engagement party! And on the next post I’ll go over some of my favorite Easter recipes made healthy.  Along with some of our photo shoots just to keep the posts shorter. 🙂 

I have the absolute best family and friends in the whole wide world. They helped make the day just fabulous. We set up as much as we could the night before. 

I Created this cute little photo booth area. For all the guests to pick a prop then snap a pic!

We had the best florist (Bottles and Blooms !!)who created our beautiful garlands and then my cousins amazing candle sticks…doesn’t it just make everything POP?! 

I am a sucker for simplistic and elegant centerpieces. I love that they have my favorite flower ever (calla lillies) and then just the right amount of succulents placed along the garlands! I decorated the garlands with some deep blue bottles we had lying around. Added some random mermaid decorations and fire related items so that it incorporated both of us into the decor.

We are so blessed with family and friends who surround us. It was so nice to see everyone who came to celebrate our engagement. We have had quite an incredible ride during our relationship. I cannot wait to see what our future holds.

My dad had prepared alllll the food, with his special super secret recipes for the chicken and Tri-tip. Insanely good.

My mom made her famous salad that is literally to die for, if you don’t like salad this is the one salad you WILL want to eat. I’ll post the recipes for it my next blog post!

Our favorite local brewery helped us out with a BOMB keg and growlers FILLED with all our favorite beers. Literally a 5 gallon keg, 4 growlers, 3 mini growlers all filled with our favorite beers. It could not have been better! We even bought a ton of other beers from the store, but the ones that got drank the most, all of Last Name Brewery! 

The night went by way too fast, I wish we could do it again. So many great conversations and hanging out with all our people. Seeing everyone get to meet each other for the first or see each other again…MAGICAL! I could not have asked for a better group of people to have been there. It was the best day ever! I can only imagine what the wedding day will be like. Filled with everyone we love on the best day of our lives! 

Shout out to a few of my people who came to help set up and get things all set up. Alex, Brandon, Bryanna and Jake for coming early and setting things up, getting a TON of ice that was desperately needed. ( I totally underestimated the amount of ice that would be used) To my parents who worked so hard to make this amazing day even possible. To Trevor who put the things I couldn’t lift and the things I can’t reach right where they needed to be.

Thank you to EVERYONE who came! We love you all and you all mean so much to us!!

Paint Nite

I’m an auntie!!!!

Before you freak out, it’s a happy little fur baby! The most beautiful white pit bull eveeeerrrr. My sister and her boyfriend adopted this lovely girl, her name is jersey. She’s totally cute!

Look at her!! She is such a happy camper right here!

Besides this cutie pie hijacking our heart this past week, we got more of our engagement photos back and OHHHH MAN. SO AMAZING 😱🤓

I got to catch up with a bestie, always nice having girl time.

Of course, who doesn’t love jacuzziiii time with a bestie?!

Fiancé and I had our first paint nite adventure. It was pretty magical. Paint Nites are hosted everywhere, but we found out our favorite local brewery hosts them every other Tuesday. (I think we found our new date night….lol) it was quite fun.

We had dinner with another couple before paint nite who live in lake arrowhead. Last time we saw them we had such a fun snow adventure! It was literally magical. For a California kid who never sees snow on her doorstep, going to Lake Arrowhead with snow everywhere and RIGHT ON YOUR DOORSTEP. Pretty freakin magical! It wasn’t warm by any means, but the sun was out and had started melting the snow.

It didn’t sound like rain, because rain falls hard on surfaces. This was most of a soft sound! Like the melted snow falling into a fluffy cloud.

Magical right?!

Anyway, we got to have dinner with them and it was AWESOME!

We went straight to Last Name Brewery for our Paint Nite. Seriously the best idea ever, bring a whole bunch of people together, incorporate alcohol and an art teacher! It’s second grade all over again for adults! I LOVE IT.

Everyone paints the same painting….but NO ONES ever looks the same. Ever. Everyone has a different perspective of it and its really neat.

Photo above to the right is what the example is.

Here are mine and Trevor’s

Above is my photo with Matt from Last Name!!! With my painting up on the shelf!

…..can I just say how cool it was to STAND on the bar? Check that off the bucket list!!
