Engagement Party

I must say, I am SO thankful for all of my readers who stuck with me during my blogging hiatus the last week. It has been such craziness, but in the best possible way. I don't expect it to slow down anytime soon with the busiest season of work coming up and a move in my agenda over these next two weeks. Regardless, I promise not to go MIA again anytime soon, you have my word.

Last night, my future in-laws threw Matt and I the sweetest open house going way/engagement party. They worked so hard to make sure it was exactly what we wanted, and it really was wonderful. The announcement was put in both of our church agendas, so there were a lively bunch of Lutherans, as well as some of our closes friends and family members.

I'm in LOVE with this candid. These two are super special to me. And yes I am double-fisting ice cream and Sierra Nevada. I have a whole year to fit into a dress right?!

Some of my favorites from church.

The tulle balls I made, or loofas as Matt referred to them all night.

Our sweet photo line.

It's all about the details.

This is so special to me. I can't wait to hang it in our home in August!

If the rest of our engagement is as nice as last night was, I am even more happy we are waiting a hear to get married! I really want to take in everything fully during this season of our lives together.

As a little side note, my June fitness goals are coming along. As of yesterday I have ridden 150.8 miles which puts me just over my 300mile goal, and I have run only 19.4. I'm just in a running rut lately and it's hard to want to get out especially with all the other swimming and pilates I have been doing. I'm hoping to still make my riding goal, and at least come close to my 75mi running goal, but with ten days left I'm not putting all my eggs in one basket.


  1. I love it so much. :) What a sweet way to celebrate!

  2. Looks like a great time! That is so special your family and friends got together to celebrate! I really like the photos on the fence!

  3. Ahh, this is the sweetest! I love all the little details, including the tulle balls ;) haha. You are so lucky to have such wonderful, amazing people in your life to share in this with you. What a blessing! I'm sure you will find this next year before marriage to be full of so much great learning :)

  4. So sweet! That is so awesome they were able to throw that for you before you left. The scenery looks beautiful and I love the pics on the fence.
