gummy bears.

They have them at Vapiano. Sadly I don't think that we will be visiting them again soon. Slim pretty much hated that place. Maybe I can convince him to give it another try.

Until then, I will miss you, gummies.

back from the past

This past weekend I traveled to Syracuse, NY for a visit to my Alma mater. I am shocked that 1o years has gone by and that so many of my dear friends are all over the country doing amazing things.

Here are some pictures... More will come soon!

The first day that I was there, we went to Heid's, you have read about this before... but I couldn't write about my trip without telling you how delicious the coney was! YOU HAVE NO IDEA how great it tasted!

That night, Jess and I were blessed by a delicious dinner at Outback with her mom and Mady. Even though Slim and I go there all the time, it was still awesome to be together.

On Friday, Sarah joined Jess and me, and we went to the Great New York State Fair! It was hot, but really fun! Here are a few pictures from that outing!

Friday night, I met up with some other friends to go to Chief's game. Tom had tickets, so we got in free, plus it was "cap night", so we got free hats. Totally a fun time, and Tom caught a fly ball, that almost hit me in the face! The picture is not good, but there should be more coming... just waiting for Heather to upload hers.

Saturday started the reunion events. We toured FHS and had a ball just sharing memories and laughing about old times.

After our tour, we headed for lunch at the Brooklyn Pickle! (this was probably my favorite time. ) I hadn't laughed that hard in so long! What a blast!

After lunch, Jess, Heather, and I went to Carousel Mall, which is soon to be Destiny, USA. It will be a 'green' mall! Awesome! Brett met up with us, and we really had a fantastic time! We brought Heather to her house, and then to the hotel to get ready for the dinner. It was at Syracuse Suds...

On Sunday morning, Jess and I went to Missio Church. It was AWESOME! The guys are doing a great job. If you live in Syracuse, you should check it out. It is meeting at the Palace Theater.

Time with the old friends was more than I expected it to be! I love all of them dearly, and can't wait until we can be together again.

such an honor

This past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to assist my darling friends as they wed. Ashley and Justin, high school sweethearts, had dated for 5 years when they tied the knot, and it was such a privelege for me to help coordinate their day.

The ceremony was held at the cutest little place on the Thomas Edison Estate, Edison Congregational Church.

Here are some pictures from the rehearsal...

Isn't the Bride-to-be, smashing? She is pretty much the cutest thing around...

Justin's grandfather, who was most precious man, married them. Here he is giving them a blessing at the rehearsal...

Just call me wedding coordinator... clip board and nametags.

This is what the church looked like before the ceremony began.

Here's the groom-to-be, looking perplexed, at the Melting Pot. A delicious choice for a rehearsal dinner.

Here are the lovely maid's of honor: Ashley's twin sisters, Kelsey and Brenna.
Ashley and her dad, walking down the aisle...

Ashley's mom joined her and her dad for the 'giving of the bride'.

After the wonderful ceremony, it was off to the reception at Harborside Event Center.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Justin Allbee... (aren't they cute)

Their first dance as a married couple.
Ashley and her sweet dad danced to Cinderella

Look at the cute beehive cake... Hooray for the All-BEES

And last but definitely not least, her blue suede shoes. Gotta love em!

One week away...

It is going to be a hot one... not just because of the weather:).

Ashley and Justin are getting married in one week! Slim and I are thrilled that we have been able to get to know them over the last year. We are so excited for them, and pumped that they are going to get to go on such an awesome vacation for their honeymoon.

California, here they come!

Keep checking back for pictures from their lovely day...
