Weddingful Weekend

Two of my dearest friends got married this last month, on the SAME weekend. It was so awesome to see both friends (Kiara and Camry) so happy. I was MOH for Kiara's wedding and got to assist her in getting ready for her wedding day! She was such a BEAUTIFUL bride. I adore this girl, and Sam (her husband) couldn't have found a more perfect girl in the entire world!

 So many sweet and amazing friends come down for Kiara's wedding. I love these girls with all my heart. It was so fun to reminisce with them about EA and to catch up on what they are up to these days. It warmed my heart so much to be in the company of so many stellar woman who I can call my friends!
Camry was such a beautiful bride! 

 Loved getting together with these girls at Camry's wedding.
These girls were such good friends in my ward growing up in the QC. So good to catch up. 

Anything Pumpkin!

That time of year has come and gone, the one that starts the  Holiday season. I have a love hate relationship with this time of year. I love the pumpkin, I love the boots and scarves (ha!), I love the apples, I love the festivities and I love the togetherness that begins during the month of October. I strongly dislike the scary stuff, the ghosts and scary movies, the monsters and the deranged people who come out during Halloween. I am a clean and fun, happy go lucky Halloween girl! :)

To start the season off right we went to Disneyland for Halloween time (mentioned in my previous post). Then we finished the season off strong with the Annual Pumpkin Carving at the Lambs house. 
 I tried to carve the Mockingjay from Hunger Games. I really nailed that one, what an embarrassment. 
 Ivy and I showing off our masterpieces.... or pieces that we didn't end up finishing.
 During our laughs at our failed attempts at elite pumpkin carving, we found a new talent! 
 My beautiful sisters and the Nightmare before Christmas pumpkins!

 We had family movie night in the back yard. It was freezing. 

 I am sure this isn't the safest thing to do, but it was fun!

My awesome parents at the Neighborhood Halloween Bash. 

We had a great time for Halloween. It was so fun dressing up, carving pumpkins and eating candy! I cannot   lie, I am so ready for the Christmas Holiday! It is upon us.

Oh me Oh my! Time sure flies by!

I have had a super fun time these last few weeks! I have had the chance to host a Bridal Shower for my bestie Kiara who is getting married at the end of this month, head to Disneyland a couple of times, and just enjoy some time off from work! It has been so refreshing and I feel motivated and prepared for the Holiday season! 

 Here is Brittney and I, getting our photo infront of the Great Mickey Pumpkin!

When you wish upon a star!

So, for labor day weekend my Mother, sisters and I tried to make plans to get our bums to the beach. Of course things never work out the way we want them too and I had to work Saturday and mom had to take care of the irrigation saturday night. Being the Disney fans we are, we decided to watch Newsies that Saturday night. It was great. I love me some Jack! (Christian Bale at his finest!) I couldn't help but sing along and have myself a grand time just dancing with them newsies. We all fell asleep on the couch. Sunday morning rolled around and my mom wakes me up from a dead sleep and tells me to get a swim suit and pajamas and that we are headed to our beloved Solana Beach! YAHOO! We hoped into the car and made our way to one of my lifelong favorite spots. I love that town, I love Fletchers Cove and I love the ocean! I couldn't wait.

We got to Solana Beach and hurried to the condo and put on our swim suits. We scurried on down to the beach and found that it was FREEZING. So cold. I was kind of disappointed that I was a weeny and couldn't hack the cold, dreary San Diego weather OR the crowded beach. So we stood on the beach access and tried to decide what action we were going to take. Do we suck it up and try to have a good time on the beach? Do we head back to the condo and watch TV? (because who doesn't drive 6 hours to just go watch tv? I mean COME ON! )

Oh no, not when Randa is your mother- she asks "Well, do you want to go to disneyland?"  and I responded - "Uhhh, do you even need to ask?"

I love disneyland, OBVIOUSLY. The greatest part of our adventure is that we didn't even bring any clothes because mom just told us to pack pajamas and a swim suit. So we stopped at target to get dressed and made our way to the happiest place on earth!

We had a grand time! We got to ride all of the rides we love, try some new rides and of course get our selves some yummy treats! I am so in love with the Dole Pineapple Whip! DIVINE!
