San Diego Vacaaaaa

On Tuesday night after my sister's proposal night, Aaron and I drove down to Southern California. We stopped in Newport for lunch the next day at Panini Cafe, and milkshakes at Ruby's.  Then we drove into San Diego for some fun in the sun and shopping with the Papi's. We had a blast loving on baby Giada and making memories with our dear friends. Thank you for inviting us!


Wednesday evening shopping at Fashion Valley 

Dinner at Stacked check out Aaron's hamburger

Thursday Beach Day, more shopping, and dinner in downtown SD at Hard Rock

Del Mar Beach was beyond gorgeous

I even got to make a fun purchase here!

San Diego was beautiful! Can't wait to go back!

J & M Proposal Night

Melaney and Joe were surprised by family and friends on Tuesday night after Joe proposed. Here are some pictures of our celebratory dinner at Bobby Salazar's. It was such a fun night full of congratulations and excitement for the happy couple. I loved seeing my sister so happy. She deserves the world.

He Put a Ring On It!

My sisters boyfriend proposed to her tonight! I have been helping him plan it for a couple weeks and she was so surprised! He proposed to her just the two of them and then I planned a surprise dinner party celebration after. I've never seen my sister so happy. I've already planned her wedding up and she's letting me "go to town" with all my ideas. So fun! Here's just a few pictures from my phone, more to come.

Aaron and I are on our way for some relaxation in San Diego. Looking forward to the beach with some dear friends!

Kicking off July

Tuesday night we went out to dinner with the Papi's at Pismo's followed by Cold Stone. Nothing like summer nights with great company and delicious food.

Fourth of July day we took a road trip over to Hanford with the Papi's for some small town fun. We ate lunch at Fatte Alberts Pizza (owned by my family) and washed it down with delicious milkshakes from Superior Dairy. We enjoyed the evening at the Continos, swimming, BBQing, and setting off fireworks into the night. 

{So delicious}

Hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July!
