Jeremy went to New Mexico

Jeremy was in New Mexico all of last week for work. We have made it a tradition that whenever he has to travel for work, before I take him to the airport, we go out to breakfast. This time we chose to go to Beachcomber in Crystal Cove! It was a beautiful Sunday morning and we could not have asked for better weather! We had a wonderful time eating yummy food and enjoying the sun shine before Jeremy was off for the week.

I had a yummy omelet with fruit!
Jeremy enjoyed french toast... he said its "the best french toast" he has ever had!

I am so happy to have him back at home! It was a very quiet week in our apartment!

Blessed... What a Wonderful Summer it has been!!

As the rain is pouring down outside, and I have my few Fall decorations placed around our apartment I am very excitedly welcoming Fall! This summer was busy with lots of changes and exciting things taking place, and I am excited for the change of weather, and the all of the wonderful festivities that Fall brings with it! I realized that I have really neglected my blog and have decided that I should get better about posting all of the happenings of the Turner house! So if you are not too bored bear with me and I will take you on a brief picture tour of our summer!!:)
I will begin with the biggest happening of the summer... Jeremy and I got MARRIED!! June 12th, 2010. We got married at his parents house and it was a warm sunny June day with all of our closest friends and family in attendance! It was more than I ever dreamed it would be!! It was such a special day and we feel so blessed by all of the love support and encouragement we felt that day!

After our wedding we headed to a wonderful resort in The Dominican Republic! It was a great week filled with relaxing by the beach, going on a canopy tour adventure, and loving being at an all inclusive resort!!

As soon as we got back from our honeymoon summer quickly began in full force! The rest of the pictures are in no particular order, but highlight several of our summer adventures!

One of the highlights was going to the Orange County Fair that just happens to be in walking distance from our apartment. We went with a group of our friends and had a blast! We had a race down the slides and I CLEARLY lost!!
This ride is the SCARIEST ride i have ever been on!! You can ask Jeremy... I think I said "I am going to die" every time I could catch my breath!
Yes, Jeremy did insist on finding the sheep so that he could reminisce his childhood of raising his own sheep to bring to the fair!
Another highlight of the summer was attending Jeremy's good friend from college, Mike Herman's, wedding up in Chico! Because it is 9 hours away we decided to make a road trip of it!! I got to experience many firsts. One of our first stops was Big Sur. We took a short walk to a beautiful waterfall, Julia Pfeiffer Burns.
We spent the night in San Francisco and literally took advantage of every minute we had in the city. We had both been to San Francisco before but it was really fun to be in the city together. I had never actually been across the Golden Gate bridge so we drove across it as we left the city! After the wedding we made a stop at the Capitol in Sacramento. This was also a first for me!

Another highlight of the summer was going to the Hollywood Bowl and seeing Swell Season, The Bird and the Bee, and She and Him. We went with a group of our friends! We all brought picnic dinners and had a wonderful evening!

We have spent as many days at the beach this summer (I would have liked to have spent more but it was a really cold summer). Jeremy has enjoying using his new surfboard that I got him... personalized and all:)
Jeremy has been working hard in our garage which we are still trying to fully get organized! Our apartment does not have much storage space so we have been having to get creative with our garage! Jeremy being the handy man he is though has been building us shelves with the new tools he just got from his parents! I will post pictures of our apartment soon:) It is coming along quite nicely!!
So as I close this forever long post I will leave you with a few thoughts I recently had! Jeremy and I had been out for a run and then got home just in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset from our balcony. As we sat on our balcony taking it in I was reminded again of how blessed I am! Jeremy and I have been blessed with so much! We both have full time jobs, we have a wonderful little apartment that is within walking distance of a couple of our friends, we have a wonderful community of friends, and we are continually being blessed daily!

Senior Dinner

We had our Senior Dinner Friday May 7th on Metzger Lawn at Biola. It was a fun night hanging out with friends and looking back over the past four years. It was crazy to remember back to freshman year when we all first met! I love the friends I have made, and am so grateful for the impact each one has had on my life!

Senior Dinner /Freshman Dinner


I love these girls!!


All of us girls lived on the same floor freshman year and were super close! We named ourselves Sisterhood of the Albie! This was because be sent around this awful t-shirt with a huge face on it "the Albie" to each girl for one week over the summer. There was rules about wearing the shirt and a notebook in which pictures were taped and stories were documented. (In this notebook was the first time I told everyone about Jeremy so its kinda funny). The picture on the bottom is our original Sisterhood picture when we had our Albie sayonce and now every time we are all together we take our "Sisterhood" picture! We have all gone different directions throughout the years but every time we get back together we are able to pick up right were we left off. I love these girls and what each and everyone represents in my life!

New Beginnings

Tonight Jeremy and I signed the paperwork and received the keys to OUR apartment! It is located in Costa Mesa about 1/2 mile from Newport back bay! We are so excited for our cozy little place... that even has a balcony!!

Our apartment is the top right unit!

Our kitchen!

This is what you see when you walk in the front door.

Our bedroom... its tiny, but our California King will fit! It was the first thing Jeremy measured for!

Outside our bedroom is a wonderful little balcony! We are excited to plant a little garden and have yummy meals outside in the beautiful sunny southern California weather!
I will post more pictures as the decorating begins!

My First Apple Pies

Jeremy is a really good cook and well me on the other hand... I don't have the best track record (I literally caught on fire while making pasta). For our Thanksgiving feast with some friends Jeremy and I were in charge of bringing a few pies. The thing is, Jeremy makes AMAZING pies, and everyone was expecting one of his creations... well due to the fact that he was extremely busy i got placed in charge of making the pies.

To do this i called in the help of my wonderful sister...

So we chopped what seemed like a million apples, and measure the ingredients for all the sugary goodness, and began creating what we hoped would turn out to be wonderful pies!

I did not have any pie pans before making these pies so I got to go shopping for some pie pans that I will keep for my future kitchen with Jeremy! I found red Calphalon pans at Marshalls and I was so excited!! I think they made the pies look prettier:)

After lots of hard work we placed the finishing touches on the pies and popped them into the oven...

Here they are... MY FIRST APPLE PIES!! I would have to say they turned out to be pretty yummy!

la la la lah

so since I'm getting married i thought i would dedicate a post to wedding stuff... my current dilemma is what i should do about wedding invitations. most of them are just so darn expensive, and come on we all know that after they hang on the refrigerator for the month prior to the wedding they are thrown away. i have come to the conclusion that you can still be creative even with the cheaper invitations and maybe just add a little something yourself. i have been searching for invitations that match my colors, and so far the ones i like the best come from non other than target! i should have known! Target does so happen to be my favorite place to shop! so here is a little sneak peak as to what the invitations to mine and Jeremy's wedding might be looking like....
