About Me

I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

Happy (Belated) Fourth of July!

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had as awesome of a weekend as I did!

(Make sure you don't miss my post from earlier this morning, though!)

First, I made a flipping awesome pie to bring to Bryan's parents' house:

Seriously...how freaking cute is that?  It was a cherry pie - and I don't even like cherry pie!  But Bryan loves it, so I made it for him.  And I actually got the idea for the star top from the packaging for a pie pan I saw in WalMart last year! And although it didn't cut well (it all fell apart) it was actually a lot easier than doing a tradition latice top so I definitely plan on doing this again in the future!

And we played outside in the sprinkler with the dogs:

 I love this picture:

 But this one is my favorite; I have no idea how I caught her mid-shake like this:

And I remembered to take a picture of my flowers:
And that picture is adorable because Tyson is standing on the edge looking up at me like "see Mom, I know I is not allowed on the pretty flowers!" hahahaha

And that's all for now - did you do anything fun for the Holiday Weekend?


  1. Glad you had a great 4th of July! I also had an awesome weekend relaxing and having fun.

  2. Love the star topping, looks so cool.

    In the 2nd picture and others that followed what kind of dog is the paler coloured one? So cute.

  3. Hi,
    I am writing a book called "So...How Did You Meet Anyway?" It is a collection of people's "how we met" stories.
    I have posted the stories which have been sent in on;
    So...How Did You Meet Anyway?
    I am always shopping for stories and I would like to add yours. Please check out the site, and if you would like to contribute your "how we met" story contact me at;
    And if you would like any more information about the upcoming book, here is a link to a television interview I did in May.

    Take care and...congratulations!
