Wearing Polka Dots to a Wedding










Wedding Outfit Details: Dress: Lulu's; Wedges: Target: Belt: Forever 21; Hat: Old Navy


Three weeks ago CJ got a job offer in Walla Walla Washington working at the hospital there. He will be doing innovative physical therapy work with doctors helping them treat patients with back pain etc. He is really excited about the work he will be doing, so I am exited for him! As we discussed his job offer it was hard for me to process the fact that we would once again be dating long distance and that he would be living in Walla Walla a tiny town known for their amazing wineries. I still haven't even been there to know what it's like. But I do know it's small and quaint. His first day there is September 18th and he moves into his first ever apartment that is all his on the 22nd. The whole process will not be easy, and it's been an emotional few weeks leading up to him moving home to Eastern Oregon yesterday out of his place in Sherwood. I hate not being able to be with him on a regular and consistent basis, but it makes the times we do get to see each other that much more exciting and special! 

This wedding in Sunriver was our third out of 7 weddings for the rest of the year. CJ will have been in 3, and I am in 2. It's been a crazzzzy summer, but it's been full of amazing memories already. I get to see CJ in 2 weeks when he comes back this way for our 4th wedding in Silverton. Already counting down the days. 

Love and Long Distance Dating

Summer Dresses in Sunriver and Something to Stay Tuned for!

Dress: Target; Wedges: Nordstrom Rack; Purse: Charming Charlies














Another Moon family Sunriver trip for the books! It was such a fun time this year. My nephews are getting so much bigger now, so they did a great job of keeping up with all of our activities. We went to the pool and rode bikes and floated the river which is always my favorite activity! I loved sharing meals together and when the baby boys went to bed we would all play games and would just laugh and have the best time! It was fun having C.J. there too, to show him one of my favorite places, because he had never been there before! This year was definitely a year to remember and already can't wait to go back! Well and C.J. and I will be back there at the end of August actually for a wedding, so I get to go twice in one year which is a dream come true, even if it's only for a weekend! Can't believe how fast this summer is flying by already, trying to enjoy every moment of it, but C.J and I are very on the go that it can be exhausting. Trying to find rest during the week the best I can.  

Stay tuned for some updates on life and some difficult decisions that were made this week that I am having to wrap my head around. Life never goes according to plan, and you would think I would know that by now. But I guess that makes the Lord all that more important in our lives as we choose to trust him knowing that he has a plan that is far better of us than we could even imagine. Even if it looks different than we thought. Praying I can keep surrendering the plan I thought I had for myself, and choose to accept his will and guidance in my life. 

Love and Summer Vacations!

About to leave for the rehearsal dinner; Dress: Nordstrom Rack (5 years ago...) Heels: Lulu's

Friday of last week CJ and I headed from Eastern Oregon up to Spokane Washington for his good friend's wedding on Saturday. Friday night we had the rehearsal dinner at this beautiful castle with an amazing meal of Steak and Halibut. It was nice to meet alot of CJ's friends in a smaller setting. Saturday was the wedding and they had the reception at The Historic Davenport Hotel where we stayed the whole weekend. It was beautiful and charming and I felt so fancy staying there. The kind of hotel that comes with robes in the closet... you know what I'm talking about! The wedding was beautiful and it was fun to celebrate CJ's friend's and get to know them all better!

I was very much so looking forward to this wedding so I could finally wear my dress from Lulu's that I had been saving for this occasion! The perfect guest wedding dress! Shop Lulu's here! I tried to find the exact link to my exact dress, but I think it might be sold out. However... they have so many other fun flirty floral dresses to choose from! This website has been my life saver for all of the weddings I have coming up this season! Definitely check them out, they have a great return policy and they offer you discount codes all the time sent directly to your inbox!

This was the 2nd wedding of the season! 5 more to go!!

Another one of those weekends for the books! I had a 4 day weekend which was much needed and glorious. I drove over to Echo on Friday after work and CJ and I and a few of his family members headed to his river cabin the next day to spend one night. The weather was beautiful and the river was refreshing! Did I get in you ask? Does sitting on a nerd emoji blow up water raft count? CJ made me get in so that I would be forced to wake up. I think I took a total of 3 naps in one day that afternoon, I was so pooped! I was not purposely being anti-social, but CJ thought getting in the river would be a good refreshing wake up. However what he forgot was that I HATE to be cold. Like seriously hate it. So I compromised and agreed to get on the floatie in the river. After we BBQ'd for dinner CJ and I played a little pool, and let me just tell you the outcome. I WON!!! I get few victories with him, so I think my running total right now is 1. Shuffle Board and 2. Pool. I felt pretty great about myself. No lie. The next day we went to the airport to pick his parents up who had just flown home from Europe. Monday we drove back to Portland and laid by the pool on Tuesday before heading to the Rodeo! I just don't think it would really feel like the 4th of July without going to St. Paul! I love that place and we had such a good time. CJ hadn't been there before so it was fun to show him around and watch the fireworks with him. 

I just love the 4th! What a great Holiday and what a wonderful reminder of the Freedom we often take for granted. I am thankful I can proclaim my love for Jesus and that I can feel safe in my country. 

I have been looking everywhere for these shorts that have the lighter denim and the fray and the shape these do. I think these are the same ones and if not they are very similar! They are also on sale right now! Love that! 

I hope you all had wonderful 4th of July celebrations and that you got to have a 4 day weekend like I did. 

Love and Fireworks
