summer fun {camping on the island}

24 Jul
My mom and step-dad live right on a river. Up the river a little ways there is a little island. A while ago we decided that we should camp on the island. It has basically just enough space to set up a couple of tents and there is already a fire pit out there. So, when my step-brother Sean came up for a week, we decided it would be the perfect time to go.
It ended up only being Dan, Ryan, Sean, Jay and I being able to go. And I, of course, ended up being scheduled until 9 on that night. So the boys went out to the island to set everything up and my step-dad drove me out on the boat when I got out of work.
We had a few drinks and hung out around the fire. They boys took turns playing around with the guitar. We played with some sparklers. It was a lot of fun just hanging out with the boys.

We have decided we need to do it again when more people can go because it would be really fun with a bunch of us.
Does anyone have any crazy camping trip stories?


Renee’s wedding

24 Jul


I feel like I’m very behind on posts of things that have been going on which I think is overwhelming me and putting me even farther behind. So I’m just going to start from where I left off and hopefully catch up to where I am now soon.
My wonderful friend Renee got married on June 17th. It was a gorgeous day in York, ME and I’m so happy that I was able to be a part of her big day.
The rehearsal and dinner was Friday night. We had a quick rehearsal and a delicious dinner at the Union Bluff. It was a fabulous night.

Saturday we got our nails done and then the girls spent the night at the Stage Neck Inn, where the wedding was taking place. It was really fun spending the night. We chatted, listened to some music, wandered around the Stage Neck, and went to bed pretty early. Renee almost decided to sleep under her dress…

The next morning we woke up, went down to the buffet and brought some breakfast back to the room, and started to get ready. Renee’s hair dressers came to the room to do our hair.

Renee’s mom also came to the room to hang out with us while we were getting ready.

When the time was right, we headed down for the ceremony. It was a gorgeous day by the ocean. Renee looked so amazing in her dress. The ceremony was beautiful and you could tell how happy they both were. It was perfect.

After the ceremony there was a cocktail hour while we went and did pictures with the photographers. Then the reception started. It was a gorgeous space with tons of windows facing the ocean. We were all announced into the reception and Renee and Brandon went right into their first dance.

The reception was lots of fun. The flowers were so beautiful. Their cake had super cute polka dots on it and after they cut it, Renee ran away with it looking like she was going to eat the entire thing. And they had whoopie pies as their favors! They were so delicious. I think I ended up taking about 4 home.

After the reception ended at 4, we went up the road a little to a bar for an after party. It was fun just hanging out at the bar with all the important people from the wedding.

I was so happy that Renee wanted me to be a part of her wedding. I loved helping her put some things together and I loved being there for her on her big day. It was a blast. I know we will be friends for a very long time and I am so glad.



End of Summer Party

3 Sep

This summer ended up being super busy and we weren’t able to hang out with our usual group of friends very often. Now that the summer is ending and school is starting and everyone is starting to get busier again, I decided that it would be nice to get everyone together during the holiday weekend to celebrate the end of summer. It was such a blast! I am so glad we were able to all get together.

crazy group shot.

We dressed up, used glow chalk, had some drinks, sat around the fire, had s’mores and snacks, hung out in our love shack, played apples to apples, had a little dance party, and took some group pictures. I think it was one of the best nights we’ve had!

I love all of these people. They are most of my favorite people (a few are missing due to living far away…) and it was amazing to be all together and have so much fun. ❤
