I ♥ NY

Did you hear it? 

The shouts of joy that I told everyone they would hear when they would say "Well keep us updated, let us know when you have a contract."

So, did you hear our shouts of joy? Because oh my goodness gracious people, we finally have a contract!!!

Where exactly? I'll give you a clue:

Still not sure? I'll give you a bigger clue:


We're going to New York!!!

I don't have time to go into more details at the moment because we are in full on wedding mode here and I got matron-of-honor duties to tend to. 

Speaking of matronly of honor duties, I absolutely have to share something with you all!

Well, with the ladies at least. 

Men, look away, it's about to get a little scandalous here on NSDHF, but these are just too cute to wait any longer to share!

Bra & Pantie cookies! 

Found on Pinterest of course and inspired by Pink Martinis and Pearls' cute little "Tushie" cookies.  

Bachelorette festivities tonight; nails, bridesmaid lunch and rehearsal festivities tomorrow;  my sister's big day on Saturday; and then New York bound on Sunday!

What an adventure the Lord has us on! And I couldn't think of anyone better to spend it with than my sweet hubby. 

More to come, but until then: Praise God for His goodness and His perfect timing in every little detail of our lives!

Like I said in my whatsapp message...this is proof that God has a plan. It is not an accident that Luis got a contract days before your sister's wedding.

David super excited for you all as well. He is already talking about coming for a visit.

I am just catching up on some of your blogs, as I have been catching some here and there - but wanted to get the full story. WHAT A JOURNEY!!!! Email coming your way soon, but I just had to comment on this blog. First off, the cookies! Oh my goodness - you get MOH of the year for finding and making those. Amazing! I may have to steal them at some point. :) And, saw the picture of you and Luis, and noticed he's wearing the suit from our wedding. So glad it's getting more than one wear. :)

Love, Kaitlyn
