House Update

Our house is moving right along and is on track to be finished in early September! Only about 30 days, but who's counting?! ;)

Our cabinets have been put in!

They are an Espresso color

All of the tile through out the house has been laid and the grout is done!

Our guest bathroom is done except mirrors and sinks!

The house has been painted and the rock was added
(In person the color isn't as yellow as it turns out in pictures)

We can not wait to call this place home for real!! :) 

Until next time,

Brie :) 

Bridal Shower

A very good friend of mine from high school is getting married in September and I had the privilege to attend one of her bridal showers.  It was so fun to be able to catch up with her and talk about wedding plans. We can't wait for Mary and Korey's wedding and are so excited for their future together!

Our Senior Trip

I'm so grateful all four of us have stayed a part of each others lives for so many years. We have so many good memories together and are still making them! I think our guess for "Married Order" went something like Debbie, Brie, Kelsey, Mary and it turned out Kelsey, Brie, Debbie, Mary ;)  Love you girls ton :) 

Until next time,

Brie :) 

Dad's Birthday

My dad just celebrated his 46th birthday on Saturday. When we asked what he wanted to do for his birthday he said golf. So we went to the golf course for breakfast and then got a few carts and rode around the course all day! My mom and I shared a cart, had a few drinks and soaked up the sun while my dad and brother played 18 holes. Once Maury was off work we all went to Yosemite Ranch for dinner.  It was such a fun day and my dad had a great time celebrating!

I am so grateful we live in Fresno now so we don't have to miss out on special days like this!

Until next time,

Girls Trip

A few weeks ago me, my mom, Aunt Stacey, and Grandma took a trip down to LA to go to a taping of The Bethenny Show. We had so much fun walking around The Grove and also got to be in the taping of Extra with Mario Lopez and Maria Menounos. I can't wait for the next girls trip!

We Bought A House

We are so excited because we bought our very first home!! It is in the process of being built and it is so much fun to go check on it weekly to see the progress that has been made! We can not wait to move in in September :) :)

The day we bought it!

Standing in our shower!

Insulation is in!!

September can't come soon enough!!

Until next time,

New York!

One night Maury and I went to my parents house to hang out and drink some wine.  While we were there, my mom told me of this idea she had..."I think we should go to New York!" she said. Of course I agreed and we got on our laptops and started looking at flights and hotels.  Maury and my dad were sitting in the other room, wondering what we were up to, because of the big smiles on our face! We clued them in, and they thought we were crazy!! We told them they didn't have to go and surprisingly that made them both say, "Okay, as long as we don't have to go!"

We booked our tickets, found a room, packed our bags and were on a flight less than 2 weeks later!! Talk about spontaneous!! Going to New York with just my mom was truly the trip of a lifetime. We shopped until we had blisters (and then some more), ate whatever we wanted, tried to find celebrities, and just had plain FUN! Thanks for such a great time momma and thanks Dad and Maury for letting us go :) Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip!!
