It's Been Awhile. . .

To catch-up on what I've been up to over the past few months, here's a quick glance:


I finally wrapped up the project I was the chair of this year for Junior League.  Our theme for our event (an empowerment day for high school girls) was "Stand Up, Stand Out, Be You!" and the centerpieces were adorable.  I hope next year's committee can build on the event we held this year and make it even better.

 SHS and I spent a long weekend in New York as we were able to celebrate the wedding of one of our dear friends.  There are so many pictures I know the trip deserves its own post, but it was so fun to see so many college friends and enjoy my last wedding with my maiden name!

 I then flew from New York to Chicago for work for the week which was exhausting, but amazing because I got to see my bestie, S!  She's moving to DC this summer, so it was fun to get to go to a few more restaurants downtown with her and our favorite places (ie: J.Crew store on Michigan Avenue) before she moves.


SHS and I had our couples' shower!  It was Paris themed (where we're going for our honeymoon) and hosted by my future sister-in-law and mother-in-law.  The decorations were unbelievable, and we're using some at the wedding as well.  My MOH and bestie, S. made a who knows the couple better game and it was hilarious and so much fun.

  My future MIL made us these cake forks and server.  The forks say "You and Me" and "Meant to Be" and the server says "forever starts today."  I can't wait to use them at the wedding!


 We got to spend the Derby with SHS' brother and SIL and our nephew, B.  I am also flying out to Minnesota Thursday morning for my bridal shower with my family and friends there.

 I can't wait to catch up with all of you and read what you've been up to!
