Megan B Wedding

Last weekend we celebrated the wedding of my friend Megan. I have known her since we met the very first day of high school. We had 1st and 2nd hour together and I still remember where we sat in homeroom. We had to sit in alphabetical order so Megan was in the front (Bruins) and I was in the back (Schmidt). Now our last names have switched where I am E (Endres) and she now W (Wierl).

Megan's wedding was held at the Veterans Terrace in Burlington, WI. There were a lot of flooding that happened a few weeks back, and luckily they were still able to have their wedding here. You can see from all the dead grass how high the water got. It literally flooded the entire ceremony area.
Megan & Andy flew to Mexico for the week for their honeymoon.

2 Showers 1 Weekend

Happy last day of July! I went to a wedding over the weekend and I feel exhausted today.  A few weeks ago, I went to back-to-back showers.

My former college roomie, Emily, is having a baby in September and her shower was held at The Covenant at Murray Mansion in Racine. This place was so pretty! They renovated an 140 year old church & mansion and just opened this spring. Emily's mom put so many cute details into the shower.
The next day I attended a bridal shower for one of my girlfriend's. I have known Mallory since 1st grade! Mallory's wedding is in October. Another lovely day!
With my high school girls! I was with all of these ladies this past weekend celebrating Megan's wedding (the one in the middle).

Hope everyone has a great week ahead!

Trust by Kylie Scott

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. 

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.  

My review: 3 stars
I thought this book had a really great beginning and grabbed my attention right from the start. There was so much potential with a great story line, but fell flat after awhile. I also watched the book trailer before reading so that threw me off too because I then pictured the 2 main characters based off the trailer. Overall it was okay and passed the time just fine. If you want a mature YA book, check it out.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
