To Uvalde

So, I thought all day today about how I would post this information and I decided I would do it in three different posts, all on the same day. So, be sure to keep reading all of today's posts.

This weekend, Richard and I headed to Uvalde for an engagement party for my dear friend, Tania and her boyfriend, Matt. I'm so excited for them.

We didn't get to Uvalde until 1:30 Saturday morning so it was a late start for us Saturday. Mom and I ran errands, took my grandmother with us to the cemetery to put flags on my grandfathers' gravestones, and just hung out together. Saturday night mom and dad had their own party to go to, and Richard and I headed to some friends and then off to the engagement party.

The party itself was really nice. Tania is Argentinian and one of the family's who gave the party is Italian, so the party was amazing; between the wine and amazing Italian pasta and polenta, and vanilla ice cream with vodka and lemon as dessert. The mood was set by the pool with Christmas lights in the trees. Besides the great food, we had GREAT conversation and were able to visit with friends we haven't seen in a while and some we just enjoy being around as often as possible.

Here are some pics of the evening...

Jill and me...Jill is the wife of one of my best friends, Aaron. Well, she is ALSO my friend and we always have a great time together!

Three of my great friends, Sami (preggers, due in October), Meredith and Jenny

Aw, who's that hottie with me you ask? He's mine, sorry ladies!

This is Daniel, Tania's dad. He is standing on a stump giving a toast to Tania and Matt.
