First, I just want to say how good it feels to be home. I left on the 13th of August to attend the wedding of one of my best friends, Lindsay Garns. The wedding was just outside of LA in Valencia, CA. The trip to Cali was a fun, four-day girl's trip. From there, I met up with Nate and flew to Hawaii for a week with his family. On our way back home we stopped in Seattle for two days. Apparently we are fitting a lot in before having kids.
Lindsay and I have been nearly inseparable for four and a half years now (until Nate came along of course). We have experienced so much together and have had so much fun along the way. She was my maid of honor at my wedding and was able to attend my temple ceremony as well so it was very special for me to be there for hers too. Her wedding day was perfect!
Grants brother and I had to give speeches at their luncheon.
Normally I have Nate with me to get the rental car and navigate our way around town while I just sit along for the ride. Unfortunately, Nate was not with us on this trip. Don't ask me how I was the one who got nominated to put the car under my name and drive it. So five of us girls had to navigate our way around the LA area. I'm proud to say we only got lost twice! I won't lie, Nate probably would've been shocked at how well we did!
We were in charge of this candy table which turned out really well. It tastes as good as it looks. I would know because I got sick from eating too much of it.
Whitney and I made sure to see Laura and Cortney. They are our really good friends who now live in LA, and Cortney was Nate's "best man" when we got married. We spent the day with them at the beach and went to dinner that night.
Nate you should've known I wouldn't leave you out of this post so here's a picture of you (mostly because I think you're cute, and then partly because I think this picture looks cool)... To conclude this trip, and begin the next, I met up with Nate at the airport in Seattle. Crazy how much you can miss someone in only four days.
I'll post pictures of Hawaii soon!

I now have a greater respect for stay at home moms. We babysat three little girls starting early Thursday morning, until Sunday afternoon. They were so cute. Nate and I watched more little girl movies in those four days than most can say in a lifetime.
I think Nate's going to adapt quite well to the whole parent thing when we have kids. He was the one who shot out of bed both nights at four in the morning to rock the baby back to sleep. He was also the one who insisted on rocking her to sleep every night. It was cute to see how attached he got to her.
