busy busy busy

These past couple weeks have been crazy! I haven't had time to do much of anything but wedding stuff. I never could of imagined all the planning that goes in... We are having so much fun but ready for it to be here. Only 9 days away!!! AHHHH!! Time has flown by but I am so excited to be Mrs. Penzo!

Last weekend my sweet sisters and friends threw me a bachelorette party. We had so much fun! About 15 girls came. We rented a hotel, had a lingerie party, went out and just had fun girl time! I really could not ask for better friends.
Thank you so much girls! I had a blast- I night I will never forget!

Sunday we had shower number 3 at Brent's Parents house. His mom hosted it for us - it turned out great! Everything was set up so cute. Brent and I received so many nice things... towels, Fiesta ware, bathroom stuff for Addi, all our utensils, our calphalon pots and pans, more of my silver and so many other great gifts! ( post pics soon)
Thank you so much for everyone that came and to Elizabeth for making it so special!

Monday I was finally able to take my bridal pictures. After rescheduling 3 times we were able to get them in on a pretty nice day! I had so much fun! Kim Singer did a fabulous job. They all turned out beautiful.  I can not wait to see our wedding pictures!

Wednesday was my 22nd birthday. I know, I know, I'm getting super old! :) We didn't do much but I had a great day spent with my family! I am so thankful God has blessed me with another wonderful year. It has probably been one of the hardest I have ever been through but would not take anything back for the world. Everything that happened this year had a purpose and I received two of the greatest gifts from God, Brent and Addison, out of it. You never understand why God does the things he does or the timing but in the end you know it was out of love.... you have to give God your full trust and follow in his footsteps not our own! That is one of the biggest lessons I have learned this year!

Saturday is my final party before the wedding. I am having a bridal luncheon in honor of my sweet bridesmaids and "helpers" in the wedding. I am so excited to see everyone!

This weekend is also Brent's bachelor party. A bunch of his friends are going up to devils den for the weekend... a fun filled weekend of all boys stuff! woohoo! I know Brent is beyond excited for it!

As we go through this next week I ask for you to pray for us. I pray for patience, stress free, understanding, love, and most of all Gods glory shown through Brent and I on our special day.

Thank you for all the support! We love each and every one of you!

Our 1st Valentines day!

Happy Valentines Day! 
Addison's 1st roses from daddy!

My beautiful roses from Brent!
Our 1st Valentines day as a family was spent going to the doctor with Addison. She had her 6 month check-up, and did great! Dr. Lovell said that everything is right on track.
She is at the top of all the charts.
 We had to get 4 shots :(
Our face turned a new shade of red but after daddy picked her up and loved on her a lot she was good!
So proud of our little girl!

Addison has grown
weight: 15 lbs 12 oz.
height: 27 in.
head: 42 cm

playing with those feet!

Brent and I received so many great gifts! I will post pictures soon!
Thanks so much for all my gifts and sharing our special day with us!
God truly has blessed us! 

This weekend is going to be busy but so much fun!
Friday night is my bachelorette party. All my sweet dee gee friends and high school friends are all coming to celebrate with me!

Homemade Snow Ice Cream

After hearing all the hype about how good snow ice cream was.. I decided to try it!

Snow Ice Cream
by Paula Dean

8 cups of snow
1 can of condensed milk
1 tsp of vanilla

the ingredients 
mixing it up!
finished product!
The boys said- " Looks gross but taste really GOOD!" 
So snow ice cream got a A+ at our house!

We are 3 weeks and counting until we get married. I CAN NOT believe that. I have so much to do in so little time and being stuck these past couple of days has not helped at all!! Please continue to keep us in your prayers during these last few stressful weeks!

I have to say this sweet little girl takes all my worries away... and lets me know everything is going to be alright!

Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend! I know ours is super BUSY!

21 inches and counting..

So they told us Tuesday night that we should expect 2-4 inches of snow today. I was certain that we probably wouldn't get any ...... OH  - we were all wrong! We got TWENTY-ONE inches of snow!!
Where is my poor car?
This does not look like the South?

 The snow was absolutely beautiful but...I am VERY ready for it to melt, be un-stuck, and have nice warm spring weather!

While being stuck at home we Celebrated Calebs 18th Birthday! I can believe he is 18 and a senior in high school. Hard to believe he will be going to college this year!

Happy Birthday Uncle Caleb!! We love you!!!

Have a safe weekend!
