Lake Time + Ted Drewes

When it is Summer around here, we always, always hit up the lake. 

It was a wonderful day to go.....until the tornado weather showed up 4 hours later!! 

ummmmm SCARY!
We almost did not make it into our cars safely, and for the first 20 minutes of the drive, I was SO worried we were going to get sucked out of our vehicles. 

But.....we made it back. Alive, too :)

And then we enjoyed more weather like THIS:

I guess StL is welcoming us back with its normal CRAZY weather! :)

Check out what it does to my hair:
HELLO humidity. Yikes!
We moved. We are back. And we are loving it.

I have already taught several Zumba classes, have lined up several potential clients, and we are now finishing the final touches on our business (to be released around July 15th!!)


This deserves some celebration....

me and my man

You guessed it!!!

with my awesome little bros
Ted Drewes.
Happiness=Caramel + Toffee + Almonds.


We are going to be in business SO soon. I can TASTE it.
Oh and I DID my hair.....before the humidity hit. hah.

Happy Father's Day to my amazing, smart, talented, spiritual, and GREAT father.

He is truly remarkable. 

And I am lucky to have him as my dad!

He has encouraged me to reach my dreams, get tons of education, uplift others, attend church regularly, fulfill commitments, work hard, play lots, put family first, always enjoy your food, give generously to others, don't waste time in front of the TV, travel as much as possible, work out/stay active, and love your spouse with all your heart.

My dad is a total gem. 

Oh, and for the record, he is a world-reknown Neurosurgeon. Yep, for reals. He is SO smart and humble about it all too. Amazing.

Love YOU daddy!

My husband is also AMAZING. And will one day be an incredible father as well, so Happy Father's Day to you, babe! Love you sweetheart!!
