Angela's Bridal Shower

We had a bridal shower for my friend, Angela, today. You might remember that Angela was in my wedding. She's getting married on August 28 and I know that she's anxious for it to get here. It's my first time being a bridesmaid, so I'm pretty excited too. Here we are at her shower. Angela and another one of her bridesmaids, Kristin.
Angela and her mom. Don't they look alike??

We played the toilet paper wedding dress game. I've actually never played it before, so it was pretty fun.

The winner!!
I may be biased, but I totally think we should have won. I mean, we even had a one-shoulder strap. You don't get any more fashionable than that with toilet paper.
The video is the gift that I did for Angela. Drew's aunt and grandma did this gift for me at my bridal shower and I absolutely loved it!

Our New Ride

Remember here when I talked about Drew and I car shopping for something to replace Snowball? Well, tonight, Drew and I bought a new car!
Isn't she beautiful?
She is a 2010 GMC Acadia.
And she is loaded with features! Back-up camera, OnStar, Navigation system, two sunroofs, power everything.

The second row of seats are bucket seats, which we figure will be the best in the long run. All of the seats fold down for cargo space also.

The only thing that this one doesn't have that we wanted was the rear entertainment package. Drew and I think that will be nice when we go one trips and stuff. But since we still have a few years before it would be useful, we aren't too disappointed. We can always install some after market equipment.
This car was a demo, driven by the president of the company. That means that there were only 2200 miles on it when we bought. She still has that new car smell!!! I'm smitten!

Independence Day!

We never do anything too exciting for the 4th of July. We usually either hang out at our house or at Drew's parent's house. This year wasn't any different. We stayed at our house, had a bonfire, and lit off some fireworks

I decided to try to take some fireworks pictures after trying the lightning pictures. They didn't turn out good at all. I definitely need some more practice. Oh yeah, a tripod would help too!
