Estella FINALLLLYYYY graduates!

Mrs. Estella Kim… BA, DDS, DABA, MD, DO, ABCDEFG…you get the point.  girlfriend has a lot of degrees.

After like 10 years of school, Dr. Kim has finally finished School!! In a big graduation, Estella walked across the stage and received her final diploma.  PRAISE JESUS.  She will not be the richest girl in the whole world and probably be my sugar mama until I die (fingers crossed).

I took about a million photos this past Sunday, so I needed a separate blog post just for this.  xoxo  Love you girl.  So proud of all that you have achieved! xo

(and uh…don’t forget to buy our plane tickets for greece, turkey and croatia next year!)

Dinner at Thai House—hella bomb food

(Why am i wearing a button you ask?  I broke the strap of my dress trying to take pics at the graduation and this is the only thing we could find to piece my dress back together.  *sigh *)

Wedding Prep and Hotel Madness

I would have to say, that the night before the wedding was probably one of the most fun nights.  Our entire bridal party stayed in the same hotel, on the same floor.  We all hung out, drank, danced, the boys dared each other to do stupid things, and we did some flower prep for the wedding.  Overall, it was probably the most relaxed I had been for a while~~ The Big Day was already upon us and all I had to do was enjoy being with y closest friends ❤

Here are some random fun photos of the night~~ Only the blog appropriate ones.  hehe

Old Hollywood Glamour & Decor

I’ve been going through a big old Hollywood phase lately!  Either that…or I’m finally putting together my style and discovering what it’s really called ❤  Probably both~

Here is a fun little inspiration board of all the things I’m loving right now and what I hope to add to my new place!  My new place & our new budget doesn’t quite allow for an entire rennovation~ but…I’m trying to pick pieces wisely so that they can at least give off the same ambiance. ❤

Bridal Shower: Hello Kitty Theme

I have the BEST bridesmaids in the entire world.  They threw the most amazing bash for me!!  Every single detail was GORGEOUS and incredibly thoughtful.  They not only were super crafty, but the decor style of the event was classic ❤  I’m so grateful to those girls!

My roomie/BM took 60+ pictures from the day, so here are just some fun ones for you to see.

Looking back on this day…I feel so blessed to have amazing friends in my life who love me.  I will always see these pictures and remember such a fun girls day to celebrate my marriage to Markel ❤

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was ANOTHER busy busy busy one~~  Filled with good food, friends, and some physical labor ❤

Friday Night, Markel and I watched a Mad Men marathon and just hung out at home.  We ate leftovers and just did what we haven’t been able to do: RELAX!

Saturday, bright and early, we woke up and drove out to Chino to help Markel’s grandparents move to San Diego.  It was such a gorgeous day~~ it didn’t feel like we were moving.  After the move, we were able to do a little home decor shopping at Z Gallerie & Target ❤

(made a little care package for Markel’s Bro’s wedding, the weather was GORG, so was the sunset!)

image

image

Sunday, Markel and I got to sleep in and slowly get ready for a big bbq birthday bash ❤  Our friends came over, got to see our new place, and Markel was able to use his new GRILL~~~ his most prize possession at the moment.

I forgot to take pictures at the beginning of the party, so here are just some random ones towards the end.  This year, I planned a REALLY REALLY chill birthday for Markel b/c he was so burnt out from work/wedding/traveling/moving/LIFE!  We kept it all incredibly low key and relaxing~ so that Mike could sit back and enjoy the day.  (Markel’s Birthday Pasts)

He was so special he got TWO birthday cakes
