I. am. exhausted.
The past week was spent cleaning and prepping the house for our engagement party. I knew we were ambitious when we said we wanted a lot of people there and we wanted every one to have fun. We wanted a candy bar, popcorn bar, and The Fiance wanted a nacho cheese fountain while I wanted a hot dog machine. Not to mention my brother was bartending for us and my friend also set up a photo booth in our garage.
Only about 45 people RSVPed to the event on Facebook, but the amount of people who showed up was at least double – if not triple – that amount! The Fiance and I were on our feet most of the time, trying to talk to as many people as we can!
Our families did so much in terms of getting all the delicious food ready and the house prepared. A few of my bridesmaids and a couple of The Fiance’s groomsmen came by early to help set up the backyard.
I was – and still am – completely overwhelmed at the support and love that we are surrounded with. It’s so good to know that The Fiance and I have a great support system that will be there for us as we continue on our journey together.
Also, I plan on doing an engagement party details and budget breakdown post or series, so keep an eye out for that!

Lately, I have been incredibly busy in all aspects of my life, but I wanted to take the time to bring back my weekly Links Lisa Likes! There are just so many great stories/posts that I have to share with you all!
While I was cleaning my house for the engagement party, I realized that my family is a bunch of mini-hoarders.
