FREEDOM!

I officially have no obligations. No weddings, no classes, no family parties...absolutely nothing! Well... at least until the end of the month.

I feel like I have been going 800 different directions at once! The following is a rundown of the last 2 months of my life....

* I moved into my first home! HUGE deal! Lots of packing, cleaning and painting. So totally worth it!
* We got our little baby Mia and she has filled our house with dog toys and laughter. Potty training a puppy is pretty hard, and this little girl is WAY too smart for her own good
* I helped throw my friend's bridal shower, and made the invitations, decorations and thank you cards! LOTS of work, but they turned out really really cute!
* I threw Laura's bachelorette party which was a full day excursion! The other girls tried to help where the could but told me they had never been very good at planning things and let me take the reins. It ended up being a great night and I think Laura really loved it!
* Painting. We painted every room in our house!
* Summer school. I took a class on communicating sustainability this summer. We only met for 2 weekends over the summer but our teacher required around 4-5 hours reading each week and blog posts that took me entire days to do! We also had a big final project in Lawrence, KS at the homeless shelter so I had to drive down to Lawrence (45 minutes) 3 different times to talk to people and take photographs. It was the biggest pain in the butt class of my life, and WAY more work than I signed on for! The whole class was so stressed out we could have snapped at any given moment!
* I turned 25!!!!! I became a quarter of a century old and celebrated with an amazing boyfriend, a fabulous soon-to-be family and amazing friends!
* I saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it did not disappoint! I LOVED IT!
* I'm sure there were many more great moments...I just can't think of them at the moment!

Laura's wedding was this past weekend and I was honored to stand next to her as a bridesmaid! I made her programs so the few days leading up to the wedding were pretty feverish with printing and trimming programs! I will post photos soon. Everyone seemed to love them!
The wedding was beautiful. We went up on friday (the other bridesmaids and myself) and we spent the entire weekend celebrating Laura's last few days with the last name of Cavaness. She was really beautiful! I don't have any photos from the wedding, but here are a few from her Luau themed rehearsal dinner!


Laura (in the orange) and all the lovely bridesmaids!



Goin' to the chapel!



Laura's little puppy Marley. She made me miss my little Mia sooo much!


Overall, its been a great summer! I saw people I haven't seen in years and i've really had a lot of fun times! Although, I am VERY excited to just lay on the couch this weekend in my new house and watch Lost. :)
