October in Orange County

I have an hour and a half left to say, Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a delightfully spooktacular day. I've been meaning to share some great pumpkin patch photos for a couple weeks, and thought I'd sneak them in here before the calendar flips to November.Derek and I discovered one of the coolest pumpkin patches I've ever experienced at Irvine...

Final Days of Spring

The beginning of June always feels like the beginning of summer. But we still technically have a week of spring left! This thought prompted me to make a long overdue post on some of the things that have been happening in the last couple months, and the above video from our childhood favorite movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers perfectly captures what...

Greer and Austin's Wedding

This is a post loaded with pictures from our wedding. I had such a great time planning our wedding. I made most all of the decorations (Kerry helped me with some! Thanks Kerry) and planned almost all of it myself (no planner!) but it couldn't have happened without our family and friends.We were so fortunate to have friends who provided important things...

My Little House

Hello! I'm writing to you as a married woman! Austin and I got married May 18, 2013 at Joyful Ranch in the valleys of Vacaville. We had the most lovely wedding (post with pictures to come soon!) and are so excited to be married. We had been dating for nearly nine years (since my sophomore year of high school) and our wedding was a very emotional day....

Baby Birds!

On Monday, May 6, our little wren friends experienced a momentous event: the eggs hatched! Honestly, I didn't even know they had been laid yet--both male and female birds had just been going in and out of the nest, but she must have laid them a few weeks ago. Anyway, Monday night Derek and I were watching tv when we heard some very high pitched chirping....

Feelin' Blue

Today was the kind of day that is just made for making blueberry muffins. You know what I mean? So I did! This recipe from Martha Stewart's baking cookbook are so good...sometimes I just make them so I can lick the batter out of the bowl.So far I don't feel sick. Yay!

Easter Stroll

I hope everyone had a great Easter, and that you're all excited for April! I know we are; besides the beautiful spring weather, we've got Greer's bachelorette party (Giants game, here we come!) and her birthday as well.Down here in Orange County, we had a lovely Easter day. We headed to Derek's grandparents for lunch with the family, followed by some...

Happy Easter!

 March was a good month. The weather was beautiful, the flowers bloomed early, and our birds have been busily building their home. And to top it off, we threw Greer a tea party bridal shower and found out the sex of Hannah's baby (oh yeah, she's expecting!) on her own fun filled birthday. Here are a couple photos of Greer's bridal shower...delicious...

Oak Canyon Nature Center

A couple weeks ago, during a lovely warm California winter day, Derek and I decided to go for a stroll through the Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills. I had driven past it before, and was intrigued by all the shady oak trees which I normally associate with Northern California. The entrance area to the park. Upon entering there is a nature discovery...

Happy March!

I love spring, and to me, the beginning of March is the beginning of spring...I don't care if it's technically 21 (ish) days until winter is over; in Irvine it is sunny and warm and beautiful (we might be a bit spoiled here).  The birds are chirping and the smell of blooming flowers fills the air. And this year, I am even more excited than usual because...
