and here we go…

ok- august was insano. BUT awesome. so here we go…

doug and jess. douger was one of my best friends at fsu. and now he leaves about an hour from us with his wife. amazing how life works!

we met them in the city for the night and had fun at dinner and h&m!

2 weeks later we were back in the city celebrating our 2nd anniversary!

we had a nice romantic dinner at dave and busters! ha... jk, we played games and i dominated nick.

for example... skeeball, my score is on the left.

then we saw "in the heights" which was UNREAL. we LOVED it! highly recommend it.

we greatly enjoyed the edison hotel. thank you ryan prem!

and... enjoyed an awesome pulled pork sandwich before heading back to princeton on saturday!

on our actually anniversary (monday) nicky got me flowers. beautiful!

tuesday night we went to the phillies game (thanks to the voltmers for AWESOME SEATS)

wednesday we headed to winston-salem for the weekend! catherine and john's wedding, my 25th birthday, and kernal kustard!

then, the REAL moment... sweet john having some downtime moments before the wedding.

nick gave the homily. it was wonderful and so special for him to be able to do that for his sister.

and they are married!!!

with john and catherine... they are wonderful.

also enjoyed having my awesome parents in town too!

with the preacherman!

daddy/daughter dance 🙂

and the bride!

it was so fun! then came the birthday which included church at first pres, lunch at tj’s with the french’s, a NAP!, bowling with my girls, dinner with the nielsens and my parents, and carrot cake with satterwhites! love being with people i love!

so now we are back in the jerz. i have an XM radio (thank you mom and dad!) and a HAMMOCK (thank you nicky)!!! and i am enjoying both of them greatly.

i think thats all i got for now. im tired and lookin forward to the weekend. prayers are going up for nick tonight as he has his ordination exams tomorrow and saturday. as he put it tonight, “its only the rest of our lives!” ha. but for real, he is going to do great and keep him in your prayers. bye blod world.
