My sister Karlie's bachelorette party/rehearsal dinner.

My sister got married and it was amazing and wonderful. We had a packed few days in Des Moines celebrating, but it was all so much fun. It was truly a joy to watch Zack and Karlie get married!

While there, we met my friend Lauren for lunch. We've known each other since 2nd grade, and now it's so much fun to watch our daughters together! 

Our photo attempt went well, as you can see.

They were very interested in each other!

For Karlie's bachelorette party, we went to an Italian cooking class and learned how to make gnocchi. It was fun! The lady leading it, Alessandra, is from Italy and she was spunky/funny. It turned out well, thankfully, as she told us the funny stories of all the "disasters" that could possibly happen while making it.

Happy bachelorette party, Karlie! Fun to celebrate you! It was also her birthday that day, so we had lots to celebrate.


After the cooking class, we went and got coffee (because Karlie loves coffee), and then headed back to my parent's house for a sleepover. Here's the little snack table I decorated. (Also, we watched Father of the Bride and there was at least one person who hadn't seen it, so I take great pride in introducing her to such a life staple.)

The next morning we all headed out for pedicures/manicures. Relaxing!


Rehearsal dinner. Zack's parents did a great job of decorating- it was a coffee/book theme, because while they were dating they met weekly over coffee to talk about the book they were reading together. It was adorable and meaningful too!
