a feast to be had- Friendsgiving 2014

i did it! i hosted my very first (hopefully annual) friendsgiving! this was no small feat people.

first you must coordinate with everyone and the weekend that will work best. then you have to figure out who is bringing what and then delegate some other items that need to be brought. not to mention the setup (i have a teeeeeny tiny house) so this included rentals. yikes!

IMG_2465i was quite proud of myself after this weekend was over. i had hosted TWO friendsgivings in one weekend and i made it out alive. but boy were cale and i pooped! i actually came down with a cold a couple days after and i bet the stress from hosting attributed to it. oh well, i had so much fun! thank you to all of our wonderful friends and neighbors that helped make it wonderful.

Welcome World!

holy moly, we are actually going to start this!

When we got engaged I jumped on making our wedding website (www.my.wedding.com/caleandjess) and i became OBSESSED! i have a couple friends that blog but i had never had the interest until i started this site.

If you know me, you know that i have never been one to be hesitant on sharing something that happens in our life, so what’s a better way to do that than in a blog!? right??

Because i live so far away from family and friends, i feel almost obligated to let them know how we are doing. might as well let the whole world know!

here i will share stories, weekly or monthly updates on activities we’ve done & I love to share “outfits of the day” so be sure to be on a lookout for those. honestly, this won’t be a single type of blog. this will be a anything i want to write about blog. one week i might post about a first grader project, the next i may post about my favorite cocktail…WHO KNOWS & WHO CARES?

without further ado, please enjoy our journey to becoming newlyweds, great parents, fantastic friends and a hella good blog.
