A weekend filled with happy events

This was a happy happy weekend. On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of a very good family friend...I taught her in high school and have known her mom forever. I love that family like they are my own. Seeing her get married was amazing. And it made me feel kind of old. It seems like just yesterday I was harassing her in class and hanging out with the fam at night playing Apples to Apples. She is such a beautiful young lady now, I can't even believe it. And her wedding was soo much fun, very laid back and enjoyable. Ry and I were there for hours and hours just taking it all in.

Congrats Richard and Victoria!

I get really bored with my hair a lot. Like really bored. I get tempted to cut it or color it or do something with it. But as I am trying to grow out my hair at the moment, that means the only option to change up was to dye it. As I pondered over the color selection I decided on dark. It ended up WAY darker than I expected. But it's growing on me.

"Bronze...that ended up black"

 And is my sister's birthday! Happy Birthday Steph! I have many memories with Steph. We shared a room for a whole lot of my childhood. I'm sure I drove her crazy with my lack of cleaning. I remember dancing in our bedroom, being really jealous of her L.A. Gear shoes with the pink and teal shoelaces and watching her get ready for prom in a pink western dress. She has given me a whole lot of insight over the years on issues that I have had and has always remembered the little details that sometimes others forget. It's very apparent by her four amazing and talented kids as to the wonderful mother that she is. She is also one of the strongest people I know spiritually. She is a great example to me in many many areas of life. We miss you very much and wish you guys were closer, but that just means we will have to come to you sometime! Especially now that your hard work and dedication to your house as paid off. I love you very much Steph and I hope that you had a wonderful birthday today, you deserve it! Happy birthday!


  1. Ahh, sniff, sniff, thanks Kimmy! Love you too!

  2. Aw what a nice post. I like happy things. And wow your hair is a big change but looks great. I think changes in hair are hardest for us to deal with and for those with us every day.

  3. Thanks! I change my hair color enough that you would think I would be used to the color shock by now but this one got to me, probably because it wasn't at all what I was expecting. But I like it, it's really growing on me now :)
