2008 In Review: Part 1

July (continued…)

In July, my sister Kristi threw me an awesome bachlorette…


My mom came out for the dinner but not the bar…lol


The theme was ‘Golf Hoes’ and they dressed me in black stilettos, fish nets, short shorts, a decorated tee (made by a bridesmaid), and a veil.


Everyone else dressed as Golf Hoes. lol.

That same weekend, we also had my Wedding Shower…

My sister Kerrie brought this AMAZING cake for me:

We had an awesome time!


The next weekend, I defended my Master’s Thesis in Social Psychology…


It was the scariest moment of my life, yet the most rewarding feeling I have ever encountered when they told me I passed:


Celebration time! A congrats gift from my sister Kristi:


In August, one of my bridesmaid’s Leah flew in from the UK, and we had a fun night out:


We celebrated her 26th birthday :) And I baked her a lovely cake.

The same day, I also got my bridal trial up-do and make-up:


Thankfully this was not the finished product!


Celebrating at the bar Leah’s birthday as well as me finishing my Master’s degree!

Eric and I also celebrated his 26th birthday…


Another cake baked, lol

I also surprised him with tickets to see comedian Kathy Griffin:


She rocked our socks.

We had a fun lazy, summer day at the beach:


Eric brought his Canon SLR and we had some fun taking pictures.

August is still not close to being finished….! The rest of the year was BUSY….this will be continued tonight!


I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s.  ~Henry Moore
