A wedding celebration for my sister

Here comes the bride…

Allie and Stan

Well, not quite yet! My older sister is getting married in September, so we threw the happy couple a wedding party this weekend. Think wedding shower, minus the girly touches since we invited the men. It was so much fun! There was a ton of food, lots of yard games (I played 4 hours of volleyball!) and a beautiful cake for the beautiful bride-to-be.

We did peacock colors throughout the house because my sister loves peacocks and the blues and teals. The decorations were super simple and mostly purchased off of Etsy. Gotta love supporting small businesses!

We ended the night with some indoor games and some sparklers. I’d say it was a successful day.

The next time I see my sister, she’ll be getting married!

A day at National Harbor

This past Christmas there was a terrible snowstorm in Pennsylvania and my aunt and two cousins couldn’t make the drive down to Maryland for our holiday celebrations. Lucky for us, the three of them came to visit this weekend! What a wonderful weekend it was!

On Saturday, we trekked to National Harbor for a girls day out. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our fantastic weekend:

It was a fantastic day. If you ever have the opportunity to visit, you definitely should.

And, just for good measure — a picture of my momma and step dad in their laundry room. John is finishing the whole thing and it looks amazing.
