Oregon was SO much fun!! I LOVED LOVED spending time with my 2 sisters! I got to meet Stephanie's fiance, Kevin. I gave them the approval to get married. I told her at Christmas (before we found out he already proposed) that he had to ask my permission to marry her... So that was too late, hence me not being impressed at first. ha. But he is great and I can tell he really loves her and will take care of her. I also got to know him pretty good because I took their engagement photos and he was so awesome and so cooperative and so natural with her! I can't believe it took me so long to get into engagements! I LOVED it. If I could do engagements for the rest of my career i'd be happy. I think i'm going to try and get into weddings eventually, I think it would be something i'd love!
Anyways, we had a ton of girl time which I SO needed! Did the whole shopping thing, girls night out for dinner and then another girls night for Bachelor finale! It was awesome. The best part is how many people asked us if we were sisters and then triplets! Ha. No. I don't think we look anything alike! Someone even thought Kristy was Steph's mom! ha!
When I first got there, I didn't know what to do! I felt useless and lost! I didn't have kids to tend too, messes to clean up, meals to make etc. I got used to it pretty fast though. Who wouldn't!?
Dustin did AMAZING. He never complained once! Not even before I left. He was dad of the year. He made forts with the girls. Read them the book green eggs and ham then actually made green eggs and ham!! He also even baked cookies with them!! Seriously, I was amazed. I'm so glad they used up every minute to spend time together because it doesn't happen very often without me around. Laken was even taking a couple steps!! It's crazy. She is not allowed to grow up this fast.
This is the day I got there!
Steph workin it.
And Kristy... cleaning up dog poop... So hot.
This was to show me as the fifth wheel. Doing engagement pics downtown Portland!

Saying goodbye in the airport! Sad.
I had so much fun and loved spending so much time with my sisters!! I wish Britt could have been there so bad! I hate how far away we all live from each other! It should not be allowed. I can't wait to do it again!! Love you girls and miss you like CRAZY!!
Oh I guess i'll leave you with a couple engagement pictures! I'm only allowed to post a few and not her favorites for the invites. They were all so good I had a hard time choosing which few to post!
Aren't they such a hot couple!? Love them.
