Thank you to those who put the whole shindig together – Mom, Mich, Mel, Prisy, Susan, Stella, etc. Mike and I will never be able to express how appreciative we are.

T minus 1 day – Engagement Party Maddness

We had a marathon evening yesterday – baking cupcakes, primping flowers, building an iMovie, hole punching – all while watching the Grey’s Anatomy season finale. Prisy, Mel, Mich, Stella, and mom were all leading the charge making sure everything is perfect for tomorrow’s event. The FIRST event of  many for the Aguiar-Martinez Wedding! YAY!

At around midnight, poor Mike had to come down stairs to meet me at the valet and we loaded up two shopping carts full of vases, flowers, candles, cupcakes, and other miscellaneous items which are now scattered all over our tiny apartment.

Craft Day!

In preparation for the engagement party several of us got together at my parents house last night for some DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects. Mich, Mel, Prisy, my mom, and I spent the evening cutting, gluing, frosting, baking, folding, etc… All is looking spectacular!

And, although they’re calling me a Bridezilla, I do appreciate everyone’s help!

Thanks guys!!!!!! ❤

View of the week

Mike and I broke down and bought a new camera. Yay! Back to exploring my artistic, photographer side. Here’s a picture I took last week while testing the settings of my new camera. It’s a gorgeous sunset!

It almost looks fake or computer-generated, but it’s not…I actually took it! Hopefully I’ll only get better, especially as I learn to use the new settings.

Have a great week!
