Christmas Luncheon

5 Dec

This morning we had a Christmas program and luncheon at our church. my mother-in-law and I hosted a table.  Every hostess gets to pick her own theme to decorate her table.  All of the tables were beautiful and so creative.  Here is a picture of our table and a shot of the room with the other tables. It was a great morning.


Photos from the 4th

17 Jul

For the purposes of this blog, I always say better late than never!  We had a great July 4th.  We spent the afternoon at Dustin’s parents with lots of friends from church and college.  For dinner we had a shrimp boil and then the whole gang headed over to our house for dessert and fireworks!  AV shoots the fireworks off at the park a couple blocks from our house, so we just watch from our backyard.  Here are some photos of the great day.

The Phantom!

8 Dec



I am so excited!  Dustin and I got tickets to go see the Phantom of the Opera in May for our 5th anniversary!!!  I saw this musical when I was in middle school and have wanted to see it again ever since.  Dustin has never seen it, so I have wanted to take him for years.  Finally it is coming back to the Twin Cities and we’re going!!  I have been humming the songs ever since we got our tickets on Saturday.

Fun in Menomonie

3 Nov

A few weeks ago we spent the weekend in Menonomie with some college friends.  We had a bonfire, went to a pumpkin farm, cut down trees with axes (the men did anyways), watched movies, and talked.  It was a great weekend.  I love being with friends from college.  Here are some pictures from our time together.
