Life at the White House

9 days away from the wedding and things are coming together! My mom is fixing my dress for the rehearsal dinner, we are in the middle of programs and placecards, we got the tile from home depot, and Aimee and I found some time to go to the twins game. . . Here is my photojournal from the week Mom wanted Aimee and I to "hop in"

She needed a strap perfect!

LOVE the subway mini mascots

Aimee and I with my mom's souvenier :) The twistie tie from our kettle corn

Quotes of the game
"Aimee did you bring any money with you?"
. . . no verbal response, just a smile!

"Mom, Cole won't share his balls with me!"

Not gonna lie, I might not blog for a few weeks. . . a few things going on around here. Hopefully the next time I do will be with wedding pictures! Thanks in advance to everyone who is helping out with one thing or another, Especially my mom's friends, you guys are great!

Two weeks ago Ryan's Aunt Shari, and sisters Kim and Kari hosted a shower for me in Henning. It was fun, especially the drive up with my sisters in the car! (It is kind of hard to concentrate once they get going!) Katie wanted to constantly know how much longer and when we would be there, Aimee worked on Katie's friendship bracelet, and Danielle just laughed at all of it! They snapped some great pictures, met Toooooobeeeee the dog, and Ryan took dad to Zorbaz. It was a really fun time. Here are all of the girls at the shower!

This weekend our friends Karen and Bonnie hosted a Minnesota Twins tailgate themed shower. There were burgers, brats, hotdogs, popcorn, nachos, peanuts, beer, friends and fun. We even got to sit on the tailgate of my dad's truck and open our gifts. We were blessed to have a beautiful Minnesota summer night
My family with Nannie and Papa.Kids with Grandma P.My SiblingsRyan's Grandma & Grandpa bought us our own life jackets for fishing!Every good teacher has one!!

We are less than a month away and really excited for everyone to come back for our wedding!! Dress fitting this week, finishing up programs, thank you notes, and place cards. Have a great week!
