Since the engagement, summer has really seemed to fly by. We've been busy planning and booking and things are really coming together. Three months and one day, people! Needless to say, at this point in the summer I'm usually reading books like, The First Days of School, by Harry Wong (yes, unfortunate name) but instead I'm currently reading, The Meaning of Marriage, by Timothy Keller (great book!) Luckily, years ago Jana and I came to the conclusion that the back to school book really boils down to one thing--don't be a bonehead.
Scott had his annual 4th of July party where we celebrated with family and friends. He and I decided to go all out with our apparel and just let everyone know how patriotic we are. Feast your eyes on this.
|I could get used to living across the street from this :)|
|Festive cake pops and fruit pizza.|
|Our friends Scott and Rebekah. They chose a more subtle attire for the evening.|
I also enjoyed a trip to the Wisconsin Dells with my parents for the National Pork Industry Conference. Yep, very official. This was my third time to go and it really is so much fun. Usually my mom and I lay poolside (my summer talent) and hit up the awesome outlet mall (my mom's talent). However, this year we were there to enjoy the Polar Vortex and watched as the lifeguards walked the pool in misery and coats.
|Notice rain and coat...Cue sadness|
|Never a dull moment if you're a Moose Jaw pizza delivery boy. And no, this isn't blow up...it's a legit fake moose.|
|Ice Ice Piggy....(I'm sorry, I had to)|
This is the only picture I got on my African safari vacation....oh wait, that's the elephant statue outside the Kalahari Resort.
Another highlight for us this summer was taking engagement pictures with Scott's talented sister, Lisa. Here's a special sneak peek of the fun!
Here's to less than two weeks left of summer! You can find me screeching into Sonic for half price shakes after eight...or still in bed before nine...thirty. Look forward to a post on Scott and I's fun with re-tiling his (soon-to-be our) bathrooms. If we only had a quarter for every trip to Lowes.....
