JULY FREEBIE + 10 THINGS

Anchor Freebie, printable, monthly freebie from Adventures of And

Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying summer and finding ways to absorb every minute of it. Summers always go by way too fast. My post today brings you a cute summery freebie! I thought water color and the anchor made a for a sweet little nautical printable that you can print out and throw into a frame for the rest of the summer. The fresh blue and white can brighten up a room and give it a clean feeling. My personal favorite for this is a crisp white frame.

I also wanted to update you guys on some things that have been going on in my life since I got engaged.

  1. I picked out my wedding dress at the beginning of June! I had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for and I finally found what I wanted in the third store I went into. I love it so so much and I can’t wait for you all to see it when I have a post up about the big day!
  2.  We just packaged up all of our invitations and they should be out the door in the next couple of days!
  3. We are at a lake place in Northern Minnesota all week for vacation with a ton of Daniel’s family. Playing in the water, fishing, playing games, and just relaxing. I love vacation!
  4. I am still trying to decide where to go for my hair and makeup for the wedding so if you have any recommendations for gals in Minnesota let me know!!
  5. Daniel’s family is HUGE so naturally we are going to have a gigantic wedding. Eek!
  6. I really want to get a new vehicle. I currently don’t have a car payment so it would be really hard for me to start having to pay for that monthly. But I am really interested in getting an SUV, especially since I live in MN.
  7. My lease at my studio apartment is up at the end of summer so I need to start packing and getting my stuff together very soon… ew.
  8. I just purchased my first big girl purse. All my purses all my life have been just cheap things that don’t last so I decided to get a real Michael Kors bag! I am so pumped about it. I realize that isn’t the fanciest to many of you but for me this is pretty fancy.
  9. We decided to go with a videographer for our wedding and I am super excited about that. Many married people have told us that they either wish they would have got a video of their wedding day or that if they did get a video that it was the best decision they made. So we decided to put some of our wedding fund there since it will last forever!
  10. Next month marks the one year anniversary for Adventures of Ang! I can’t believe how fast that time has gone!

Thanks for reading! Head to the Freebies page to get this month’s free printable, enjoy!

THE LAST OF BANFF

Oh hey guys! I am here to do a final post about our trip to Banff! If you missed the first couple you can find them here and here.

The day after we went to Lake Louise we decided we should check out Yoho National Park since we are up here, why not? Especially since all the parks are free this year! We tried to do the Takkakaw Falls hike and after being lost for what felt like hours and hours we discovered that the road to the falls was actually blocked off due to an avalanche.

Our phone GPS could not be trusted so our manly men turned to the map.

LAKE LOUISE, BANFF DAY 3

We successfully camped our first night in Banff National Park and woke up under the giant towering evergreens (seriously, not as many maple trees as Canada leads on). That morning we made breakfast over the fire and planned out our day. We decided that we would visit Lake Louise this day because we had heard such wonderful things and seen such awesome pictures and we wanted to see what all the fuss was about for ourselves. We packed up some things to take with us for the day and drove the half hour to the trail. We got there early enough that we could still park really close. We started walking across the parking lot and through some trees and BAM we were there! We were pretty caught off guard because we expected this beautiful gem to be off the beaten path a bit, but nope! The path is literally paved because it was so well beaten…

We were surrounded by foreign tourists with selfie-sticks and middle aged women taking pictures with their iPads. Our own personal hell. But Lake Louise still did not disappoint! Her beauty far outweighed the crowds.

FINE, you caught us, we are the foreign tourists with the selfie-stick. Also, I think it’s important to note, Kelsey’s missing hand.
