This past weekend I was showered and completely spoiled at my first bridal shower! Some of my best friends threw it for me and we had a ton of fun! The theme was pink so almost everyone wore pink, the decorations were pink, and all of the wrapping (and many of the gifts) were pink too! Right up my ally for sure. They all got me such thoughtful gifts and it was so much fun seeing what everyone picked out. They had an awesome lunch buffet set up for us and we all ate and talked then we headed out to the pool!
The pool was totally packed with the worlds best floaties! Seriously, if you have seen it on Instagram before it was probably in their pool. We played games, snapped pics, and danced for hours. They all made me feel so special! I don’t know if I have ever had THAT much attention it was a little overwhelming!! The night slowly turned into my birthday celebtration since we were already all together, why not!? So we went out to eat at the local Mexican place and then bounced around a couple of the pubs in town.
Overall, it was so much fun! See more pics below.

Thank you so much for LeAnne, Britt, and DeAndra for hosting and giving me such an amazing shower! And thank you to all of the girls who came and made me feel so loved. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. ♥
A couple of weekends ago we were invited to Brainerd Zip Line Tours to check out their zip lining set up and experience. I have done lots of adventurous things in my life but surprisingly, this was my first time ever zip lining! You guys, it was SO much fun! The staff was so professional, fun, and kind. When we first arrived they happily greeted us and had us go out on their porch where all of the equipment was laid out in front of us. Then we had two guides give us an overview of what our time would be like there then helped us get all of the fancy equipment on. Then we all climbed into a big van and drove up a hill to a mini zip lining lesson.
They showed us how to break, how to get more momentum, what to do if we get stuck, etc. Then we headed up the stairs to our first line! It was such a thrill! The first line was pretty short so it was a good warm up for what the rest of the day had in store. When you are up in the tree tops like that you get some awesome views of the forests and lakes near by. The guides did a great job of pointing out nearby cities and landmarks all along the way.
They have seven lines, a 65ft suspension bridge, and one 50ft jump all which kept our adrenaline up and pumping for the whole two and a half hour adventure! We loved our time with Brainerd Zip Line Tours and highly recommend going if you enjoy a thrill and a high quality guide! Tag me on Instagram if you end up going.

I can’t even believe that one year ago today is when I launched Adventures of Ang and started promoting the little content that I had! Blogging for Adventures of Ang has taught me so much and really pushed me outside of my comfort zone at times. I started this blog as a place to log my everyday adventures and to teach people a little about wellness and it has started blossoming into so much more than that. It has given me the opportunity to connect and network with people I never would have otherwise, it has challenged me to learn and develop content that would be worth reading, and it has given me an online space that is almost like a journal for me.
I thought I would go back in time and list out some of my favorite posts over this first year:
- I really liked this post on getting submerged into a new city because these are all tips I used when I first moved as well!
- This one has some good content alternatives to staying in hotels when you travel.
- This post has tips on how to stay fit while you’re on vacation, I think I need to review this one for myself sometimes…
- Our adventures in Jay Cooke State Park, this one isn’t so much about the post but it was the first time I added a picture of Daniel. ♥ Also, Willow was still so little! Now she is so huge and there is no way I could hold her like that anymore.
- And of course, my favorite post of all is the one describing our whole engagement that Daniel planned flawlessly!
I truly appreciate that there are people out there that take the time to come and visit my blog. With all of the content that is available online I am so honored that someone would stop here among everything else out there that is available to read. So thank you! Thank you so so much for reading and visiting Adventures of Ang.
As always, I love feedback so if you have ideas for content or suggestions for changes I love to hear them! You can leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
