Amanda & Dustin are married!

Dustin and Amanda chose  the hottest, most humid day in July to say ‘I do.’ I think by the time the ceremony was over, everyone could pretty much wring their hair out.

boys and gross stuff

part of me hopes for a boy… even though they are crazy high energy, mischevious, and always seem to be sticky. that way I can dodge all the drama that can come with girls. but then again… who wouldn’t want a ‘mini me?’ Hope everyone has a great weekend! I will be attending a bridal shower […]

the Jaeger wedding!

We were so lucky all Summer to have such nice, unseasonably cool weather… until Abby (aka ‘Goob‘) and Nate’s wedding day. : )  It was a little on the warm side, but we were thankful for a light breeze to kiss us every now and then. It was your traditional rural Nebraska wedding — small […]
