Parties and Football

Time was well spent during Kyle, Rebecca, and Richard 's visit with parties that included Iron Bowl, Dad's Birthday, and Kyle's Birthday! For Game Day, we had homemade soup, spinach dip, and other tailgate foods :) For my dad's birthday celebration we went to Conestoga Steakhouse and came home for cheesecake! For my brother Kyle's birthday we went and ate MEXICAN at a local favorite and came home for Kyle's fav cake EVER...Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake!


 Dad's 60th Birthday!!

 We had such a fun time with the birthday blowers! We all acted like we were 5 years old!
Next up...KYLE'S 27th BIRTHDAY Celebration

We had such a fun time celebrating BIRTHDAYS and can't wait to celebrate MANY more wonderful birthdays and holidays together!

I'm back...

I just know ya'll are BEAMING with JOY that I have finally's about time, I know! I have like 2 months worth of events and 'happenings' to share and I am super excited about it! There's so much like Auburn-Georgia game in Athens, Thanksgiving, my brother's visit home, gender reveal party I planned for a family friend, Christmas parties, Christmas, and many more!

First Up...Thanksgiving :)
I am so thankful that my brother and sister-in-law were able to spend 2 whole weeks with us during Thanksgiving! Rebecca even brought her brother Richard 'across the pond' with them! This was Richard's first official Thanksgiving, because well...England doesn't celebrate Turkey's America's holiday ;)

It's only appropriate to give him a "1st Turkey Day" gift :)
Here's Paw-Paw and I eating some 'starters'. Chicken cheeseball, regular cheeseball, and baked enchillada dip :)
 Momma bought Richard this turkey hat and said HE MUST WEAR IT! Everyone wanted to wear it!

 Rebecca and Rich making their plate full of yummy goodness!
 My brother and I enjoying our meal...notice Chloe sitting between us? I think I was prolly feeding her some turkey!
*Check back tomorrow for more pics of their visit! :)

I'm a Busy Girl!

I know I haven't been a great blogger lately, but I have been SO busy! With work all week, school at night, and going out of town/out of state every other weekend, my blog has been losing my attention. My brother and sister-in-law have been in town fron England and will be here another week, so now my time is spent with them as well as planning a fabulous Tacky Christmas Party I am hosting with Brittany and a GENDER REVEAL shower I have been asked to help plan for a dear family friend and her husband! I am so excited about planning these two parties and if you have any ideas I will gladly take them!

 I promise to be back as soon as I can :)

Va-Cay:Wedding Randoms

Enjoy the following wedding random shots I took in between the wedding and reception.

I just love this picture of sweet Abigail! 
 Here's the groom's truck all decorated my the groomsmen. It's a new truck, so just car chalk was allowed :)

 Here's a pic of my parents and I with my dad's parents.
 I just love the pearls in the roses, don't you? This was taken in the 'party bus'/wedding shuttle that took everyone from the hotel to the reception venue and back to the hotel at the end of the night...or early morning
On the bus, we had some homemade apple-cider moonshine made by this groomsman named was really good though!

 You can tell it was a community Mason jar!

Have a great week,

Va-Cay: Rehearsal Party

Sorry, I haven't blogged in a long while. I have been out of town enjoying life every weekend and work and school have been so hectic! I may also have a new addiction to Pinterest...anyone else have the same problem? :)

Friday, October 21st was a fun evening spent at a local bar in downtown Harrisburg, PA. We rented out the whole bar for the "Krider Family Wedding". Here's some pics of our fun night before the wedding!

My cousins Misty and Bridgett and I.
